BenQ Zowie XL2546 e-Sports Monitor Review

It seems like many monitors are being marketed to consumers as "gaming monitors" with their flashy RGB lights, curved screens, and impressive specifications, but are these the type of monitors you want if you are a serious e-Sports player? From what we've gathered, probably not. Most professional e-Sports players do not use super large displays, curved screens, or even high resolutions. They are more concerned about performance and functionality. That is where the BenQ Zowie XL2546 e-Sports monitor comes in. This 24.5-inch TN panel had an HD (1920 x 1080) resolution, 240 Hz refresh rate, 1ms response time, and 320 cd/㎡ brightness. On top of that there are gaming-focused features like Zowie's Dynamic Accuracy technology, Black eQualizer technology, an LCD frame that was designed to reduce light reflection from the screen, and even shields on the side of the monitor to eliminate distractions. Is this the ultimate monitor for the serious e-Sports player? Read on as we find out...

Benq Screenbar e-Reading Lamp Review

One thing that most of us do not think about when designing and setting up our PC Desk setup is lighting. Yes, you may want some RGB lights on your desk or behind your monitor, but real functional lighting is sort of an after-thought. Well Benq might have just the thing for you in their Screenbar e-Reading lamp, which is designed to sit on the top of your monitor and provide great lighting for your work space. It also solves problems that traditional lamps face like incorrect brightness, limited space, and screen reflection. Let's take a look at the Screenbar from Benq and see if it is the ultimate lighting solution for our setup.

Viotek GN27D 27-inch Curved 1440p 144Hz Monitor Review

Not that long ago we took a look at Viotek's 32-inch GN32Q, which was their 1440p curved 144Hz display with a really cool rose gold design. While 32-inches is a good size, it seems most serious gamers feel a 27-inch or 24-inch display is really the sweet spot as you really don't have to move your head around at all the view the entire screen. Viotek's GN27D features a 27-inch curved VA panel with a 1440p (2560 x 1440) resolution, a 144 Hz refresh rate, and FreeSync. Compared to the GB32Q the GN27D definitely looks more like a gaming display with its all black design and slim stand. Even better is that this display is only $369.99 on Amazon, making it one of the most affordable 27-inch 1440p 144Hz curved display out there. Is this display worth picking up?

Samsung CF791 34-Inch Curved Widescreen Monitor Review

When it comes to building a PC one thing that we overlook most of the time is our display, I've even done this in the past. If you think about it your display is something you look at daily for hours on end so it is probably a good idea to pick out a monitor that suits your needs and you are going to like. I have been using two 24-inch 1080p displays for a couple of years now and honestly I did not have much of an issue with them at all. I had been looking into ultra-wide displays for a while and talking with Samsung they said they had just the display for me to check out, it was their CF791 34-Inch Curved Widescreen unit. It represents the perfect balance between a display made for productivity and one made for gaming. On the productivity side you have a 34-inch WQHD (3440x1440) display that makes use of Samsung's Quantum Dot technology and has a 3000:1 contrast ratio. On the gaming side of things you have a 100 Hz refresh rate, 1500R curve, 4ms response time, and AMD Freesync. Can this monitor make me ditch my dual-monitor setup? Read on as we find out!
