Below is a summary of the features and connections of the screen: We tested the screen to establish the methods used to control backlight dimming. This will give us a realistic view of how the monitor performs in real life, as opposed to being reliant only on a manufacturers spec. We left the color temp setting at k and gamma at 2. While we’re on the topic of the uniformity compensation, this worked very well indeed and provided a reliable and stable uniformity for those who need it.

Introduction BenQ are well known for their gaming monitors in recent years, with their XL series being very popular in the gaming community. Click for larger version. The HDMI cable is not provided however.
Specifications and Features The following table gives detailed information about the specs of the screen: The headphone clip is shown above and can be easily removed if you want. View of an all black screen from the side.
Very good range of adjustments and easy to use.

You can change this to sRGB as well in the ‘standard’ mode, which we will test in a moment. It does seem that for IPS panels, a G2G response time around 9ms tends to be about as good as you can get without introducing some noticeable overshoot problems. The colour space is now very close to the sRGB reference although it doesn’t match exactly. It’s very hard as a result to produce a technique which will measure just the signal processing on its own unfortunately.
Backlight Dimming and Flicker. There was a great range of ergonomic adjustments available from the stand allowing you to obtain a comfortable position for a wide variety of angles.
A partial solution though if you want to use the screen in lower ambient lighting conditions. There are dark trails behind the moving car as you can easily see, where the overdrive impulse was being applied too aggressively. We have plotted the luminance trend on the graph above.
Average Static Contrast Ratio.
The default factory bens of the screen was good in terms of gamma, white point and the balance of colours, with only minor errors from the factory calibration. Great to see a full range of options from the stand here. That impacts luminance and contrast ratio which we will look at later on in the review. For our tests we will continue to use the SMTT tool to measure the overall “display lag”.
The screen behaves as it should in this beq, with a reduction in the luminance output of the screen controlled by the reduction in the OSD brightness setting.

We will consider the following points here as much as possible. The factory calibrated white point and gamma were only slightly off by our measurements. We will carry out some hardware calibrations in a moment and also validate the results using our normal LaCie Blue Eye Pro report feature for easy comparison.
Graphics card settings were left at default with no ICC profile or calibration active. Colour accuracy bwnq also improved a little, although the bneq factory setup was very good in this area. Once selected you can just press ‘next’ to go through the other options including defining the ICC profile settings, sample set for measurements and then calibrating your device if need be before the process starts.
Pulse Width Modulation Used. PWM used although at high frequency. Even the provided monitor hood was a nice extra, and may be useful to some people in certain environments. You can also choose within the calibration options whether the uniformity compensation feature is turned on or off, as once the calibration has completed you can’t change much from within the OSD manually including that feature.
It should be noted also that the brightness regulation is controlled by a 652 frequency 16,Hz Pulse Width Modulation PWMalthough not with a full amplitude which you would see on most PWM screens.
The other results were identical. Benq Fpvw Digital 1.
Testing the screen with various gradients showed smooth transitions with no sign of any banding thankfully. Since most users won’t have access to hardware colorimeter tools, it is important to understand how the screen is going to perform in terms of colour accuracy for the average user.
