Hey! how are we doing and welcome back to another post. now today I want to talk to you about budget high refresh rate monitors because I’ve got one here from Ben Q and it is the Excel to 411 and this is a monitor pretty much has everything a true gamer would want or at least that’s what the marketing works have you believe.
So this is a monitor with a 1080p resolution 144 Hertz refresh rate a TN panel but it does lack any free sync. You should be considering or is it something that maybe you shouldn’t well as always it all starts with the design of the monitor which I have to say it’s very inoffensive but it does absolutely nothing to WoW me at all it is fairly bland it won’t fit in with pretty much any color scheme but it doesn’t really do anything to look particularly gamer II but it doesn’t really look that interesting either so while it will fit anywhere don’t expect it to sort of become the center of your desk as it were around the bottom of the monitor you will notice that the stand is very adjustable in fact it’s got all the adjustments you would need and it has a lot of them because the swivel swivels around a lot there’s plenty of height adjust and you can pivot this to 90 degrees as well although this thing at TM can all that’s not necessarily something you’d want to do as the viewing angles may not be ideal in this scenario move around to the back of the monitor and here we’ve got all our inputs we have a HDMI socket although this is limited to 60 Hertz we’ve got DVI which is what you’re going to want to use about 144 Hertz refresh rate and then your legacy VGA for some reason though there is no DisplayPort here which I find really odd as my personal BenQ monitor that I bought what three or four years ago has a DisplayPort socket so it’s kind of a strange of mission on a monitor that costs over 200 pounds on the left-hand side of the monitor though you will find that there is a headphone jack that you can plug in some headphones to where there is no USB hub so you won’t find any USB port on this monitor move to the under side and you’ll finally buttons for controlling the on-screen display and the on-screen display generally speaking is pretty good it’s fairly easy to use identify myself getting confused visually it’s not the best thing in the world but it’s definitely actually one of the better menu systems currently available today just like the buttons feeling a little bit cheap and it’s in the menu that you will find a range of presets with myself opting for the srgb one and then lowering the brightness because the brightness is way too bright out of the box and if you set it to a hundred you would definitely blind someone well maybe no literally but yet way too bright you do have a few BenQ exclusives things like the black equalizer that will allow you to see through shadows and essentially completely ruin the image quality of your monitor but it can give you an advantage in games but it’s definitely not something I would actually recommend that people use but obviously have a play and see for yourself so that’s pretty much everything you need to know about the monitor from a design point of view and of course the menu system what’s this thing actually like to use and is it good for gaming well it’s ones that question you’re going to want to put it on your desk and you’re immediately almost certainly going to be disappointed with the image quality if you’ve ever used IPS monitor because it just looks a little bit flat and that purely comes down to the fact that it’s a TN panel and when you can get IPS monitors that with 75 Hertz refresh rates for monitor then I think it’s quite fair to say that the image quality isn’t fantastic and it is going to be very noticeable how much this is going to affect you well that’s probably more important because if you are someone that does gaming and then you maybe do some stuff on the side maybe you edit a few photographs maybe you want to go browsing plate pages like Flickr and you actually want to give to see the full colors in the the image then you will be disappointed and you will feel the compromise but if you are this monitors target audience which is a gamer and you pretty much only played games and then maybe do some general use on the size then you’re going to be a lot happier with this monitor because it does one thing very very well and that thing is gaming assuming you can drive this at 10 HP at 144 Hertz which actually is fairly easy to do if you’ve got a modern graphics card then you’re going to feel the full benefits because you’re going to have a knife like I’ve snowed I was going to say nice smooth and fluid response time and the input life of this monitor is very low and I think the main two things if you want to play competitively with the best equipment advantage is to get yourself a good fast responsive monitor and then a good mouse and assuming.
You’ve got both of those covered then you are going to have a genuine advantage and this is a monitor that I would recommend to people that do want to have that monitor advantage because it is very fluid it is very easy to play and playing games like Gears of War 4 that are reliant on you pretty much having the quickest reaction times possible and having a smooth fluid monitor then it really does help but of course this does come at a cost of image quality and there are monitors out there that are a hva so IPS like that have the benefits of being fluid have the benefits of having a low level of input lag but also have much better image quality but of course those are a lot more expensive and if you are in a budget and something like this is actually going to be a pretty good option for you it just comes down really to what sort of person you are and whether you are going to want to have the utmost gaming fluidness and responsiveness at the cost of everything else or if you want a more general monitor that can play games but isn’t going to give you necessarily that much of an advantage but when it comes to this particular monitor there are definitely some extra flaws that need to be pointed out the main one really is the fact that the closest rival to this is the AOC was it the G you 270 PF for some it’s something very similar to that it’s around about 20 pounds cheaper at the time of filming it has in my opinion a slightly nicer design although maybe it does feel a little bit cheaper but the main thing really with that monitor is that it has DisplayPort and it has free sync sure maybe you won’t use either but those are two extra features that that monitor has that this one doesn’t and when you look at the two on paper they’re very very similar and pretty much the only real reason for someone to go through this monitor is if they want the 3d vision that comes with this particular BenQ monitor otherwise for me it would come down to whether you want that free sync or just pretty much go for which ever one is cheaper if you are serious about getting a monitor like this and yeah that’s pretty much the way I’m going to wrap up this video overall this does win the recommended award as I say this does one thing and it does one thing very very well and that’s gaming but if you’re someone like me that does stuff other than gaming from their monitor then it’s definitely worth considering whether the compromise of that image quality is something you’re willing to do so there you go recommended award what do you think is this a good monitor for you is this something you would buy or do you think BenQ should have added more features let me know down in the comment section below and matter thank you to BenQ for supplying this review units thanks Corsair for sponsoring the channel has always subscribe for more monitor reviews like this maite video if you liked it dislike if you didn’t.
