Indolent isn’t a word you’d use to describe BenQ. On the contrary.

Within the space of a few months, this Korean projector giant gave us the likable GS-1, a budget-priced $999 model with a high fun factor. This was followed by the more seriously inclined W1700, a 4K model much further up the range of BenQ’s well-stocked video projector larder.

Sister publication, StereoNET favorably reviewed both projectors.When it isn’t hiving off projectors, BenQ toils away designing swank Monitor Screens the calibre of the very latest ZOWIE XL2536.

An improved version of the successful XL2430 model, the ZOWIE XL2536 is going to please serious gamers, and along the way it can do sterling work as a PC monitor.

Either way, the new BenQ is going to put its rivals in a bit of a tizz loaded as it is with features and new tech.

Gamers will enjoy the ZOWIE’s Dynamic Accuracy Technology that improves the clarity of moving objects. Enemies are a lot easier to deal with in a game when they come into view with crystal clear clarity, and their outlines are sharp and vivid.

As for villains lurking in the shadows? They won’t have anywhere to hide because the ZOWIE has Black equalizer technology designed to brighten dark areas without bleaching out bright areas.

Gamers can also use the ZOWIE's Colour Vibrance feature to adjust colour performance to suit their individual viewing preference.And the S-Switch will also come in handy to control the ZOWIE’s display settings and switch between saved modes.

BenQ describes the ZOWIE XL2536 as a monitor dedicated to the eSports markets. It said:

The ZOWIE XL2536 and the SL series models have become an industry standard expected at the highest level of competitive gaming.

Available now, the BenQ ZOWIE XL2536 sells for $599 RRP.
