Introduction

Full HD for everyone!". True to this motto, BenQ is bringing a 16:9 monitor with a native Full HD resolution at a low sales price to the strongly contested market with the G2411HD. BenQ is going in a different direction in terms of the design: unlike most other manufacturers, who cover their products in high gloss design, BenQ concentrates on a simple, matte design for the G2411HD.

Through its low price, the model targets price-conscious buyers and office users in particular. Thanks to the response time of 2 ms (grey-to-grey), however, gamers should also benefit.

The model becomes a multimedia monitor through its HDMI connection and Full-HD capability, whereby nothing stands in the way of connecting the monitor with modern accessories such as Blu-ray players or Next-Gen consoles.

At first glance, all of these characteristics promise quality. This review should clarify to what extent BenQ manages this with such an inexpensive model.

All results published in the test were obtained via the digital input of an ATI Powercolor X1950Pro. The measurements for the calibration were made with the iColor software in conjunction with the DTP94 colorimeter from Quato as well as the "Colorimeter HCFR". Sony’s BDP-S350E Blu-ray player and the Playstation 3, also from Sony, were used to test the video functions and the suitability of the monitor for gaming.

Scope of supply

The BenQ G2411HD is delivered in a compact box. The exterior and base are included separately, but this is no problem after a glance at the printed getting started guide: mounting is very simple and the exterior sits firmly into the base with a click.

The scope of supply can be described as Spartan. Probably for cost-reducing reasons, BenQ has not included a DVI or a HDMI cable and includes only an analogue D-Sub VGA cable for connecting the monitor with the PC.

The scope of supply of the BenQ G2411HD looks very small.

There is also an external device cable for providing the integrated power unit with power, safety instructions, guarantee conditions and the getting started guide we already mentioned. The CD that is also provided contains the complete guide in digital form and a colour profile. BenQ does not provide a complete printed guide.
