1 Reason For

Benq Has Excellent LCD Screen Reviews

We checked 10,132 expert and owner reviews for Benq LCD screens and found that on average Benq has excellent ratings. We also found that Benq has excellent ratings specifically within its medium monitors range.

4 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

The Benq XL2420G does not have a built-in speaker, although this is within the context that most of the other PC monitors that have been around for around the same time as the XL2420G also do not have a built-in speaker.

Chart Edit

Not 3D Compatible

Most comparable spec PC displays that have been around for a similar time to the XL2420G are not 3D compatible. The XL2420G is no exception to this as it too is not 3D compatible.

If you are looking for a PC display that is 3D compatible then you might also want to consider the AOC d2757Ph, or the Asus VG236 which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

The XL2420G does not have a built-in camera. Most of the other medium monitors that were launched around the same time as the XL2420G also do not have a built-in camera.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader

Like most of the other LCD screens of a comparable age and spec to the XL2420G, the XL2420G does not have an integrated card reader.

Other PC monitors which also have an integrated card reader that you might want to look at include the U2413 ($429.99), or the U2713H both from DELL or the Acer DA220 which also has a higher rating.

Practically the best 1080p Monitor on the market. If you haven't tried G-sync, do yourself a favor and do what you can to get one
No dead pixels, Adjustable stand, Matte bezel, Uniform, Crisp and Vibrant image
144Hz, G Sync, mobility, sturdy
Zero flicker
Bright screen
Costs 23 of what my whole rig did (worth every penny
I have to put the case on it after use or else I can't sleep at night
My first monitor was from the September 2014 batch and had a number of issues. Dead Pixel, Power button didn't function correctly, 3D light kept coming on and off, scan lines, heavy flickering, unsmoo
Default settings give a weird red glow if you view the monitor, even a little, from below. Now that I've customized everything it's gone
Changing from G Sync to normal or vice versa can take some seconds. (first world problem
