Top Customer Reviews
I took time again to know which is the best display for console gaming. And I went to the BENQ site and was comparing all the models and checked their reviews and finally narrowed my search to 2 monitors this one and the RL2460T. I liked the design of this monitor and the extra HDMI port which is available to connect your media player (Micca speck D2) after seeing those displays which can tilt and rotate is just a fancy gimmick. So I shelled out my money on BENQ RL2455HM it's the best and performs like a champ and I am astonished by the quality , sharpness and the responsiveness of the monitor. There is never a lag and I tried out all fast paced FPS and RPG games it's responsive and you will never miss the target. Would recommend it to anyone who is a casual, average or hardcore gamer. You will never go disappointed.
Lightning fast Response Time; After doing my research online comparing response times and refresh rates, I found out that the difference between 1ms and 8ms is a HUGE difference.
Before this display, I used a Sylvania 22" HD TV. Now, TVs aren't meant to have lightning fast response times and refresh rates, but this one was a solid 8ms/60hz so it worked for the 5 years I had it.
After getting the BenQ in, I set it up and immediately noticed significant changes in my performance on games like Call of Duty and even Payday 2.
Easy setup; getting this out of the box and on my desk took no longer than 5 minutes. The stand and base interlock very easily and it's a very sturdy setup. No wobbling or anything like that.
Easy navigation; the buttons on the side of the display have their own shortcuts that you can customize for things like volume and which input you're using. The buttons have a definitive click to them and they take some getting used to in terms of totally finding everything and tweaking to your likings, but it shouldn't take more than 10 minutes to get a feel for it.
Speakers; I had recently gotten a new pair of speakers for the monitor, and boy did I need them. The speakers on this monitor are very tinny sounding and lack any kind of power. They're only 2 watts, and they sound exactly like cellphone speakers. This might be a huge deal to people who don't have external speakers or a headset to use.
No remote controller support; I found in many instances that I would have to physically get up out of bed to lower the volume if it was too loud. (FIRST WORLD PROBLEMS) but this is only a minor problem.
Washed Out Color - I use to feel like the color was washed out, but I found a solution. I believe the monitor is still too bright, but the ECO setting makes things PERFECT. It lowers the backlight and saturates the colors and makes them look beautiful. The brightness is perfect for all games I play currently and I haven't turned back yet.
Overall it's a great monitor for the price, even if it is lacking in some respects. I hope this guide was helpful and informative.
6 MONTH UPDATE; I'm updating this review on April 5th, 2014.
Over the past 6 months, I've had nothing but good things to say about this monitor. I have not had any problems with it at all and I use it 7 days a week. Sometimes the monitor is on for 24 hours or more at a time and it's still going strong! I've fixed certain visual problems that took a star away and now I believe this monitor is PERFECT for the price, especially because it's on sale right now! (04/05/14)
Here are my visual settings for a perfect display;
Color Temperature: R 95 G 93 B 97
Instant Mode: On
Picture Advanced: HDMI RGB PC Range; 0~255
we will feel 'connected' to our gaming inputs vs. what is happening on-screen -not to mention color-accuracy, brightness & contrast ratio.
LCD-panels have yet to best CRT-monitors and, most-likely, never will.
Moving on, I will attest to the fact that these BenQ LCD-panels have been designed with the competitive-gamer in mind & hardware-performance
should satisfy the majority of hardcore & casual gamers.
*Display latency and on-screen motion rivals the old-school CRTs (picture tube).
Pre-XB1/PS4, my preferred gaming-display was a 480I 28in 4:3 true-analog Sony CRT Monitor -which produced a clean & bright image with,
virtually, undetectable nanoseconds of display latency.. Unfortunately, the XB1 / PS4 console releases, essentially, forced many CRT-
enthusiasts to migrate to these inferior LCD-display panels. Alternatively, digital-to-analog converters or hunting down and acquiring a used
HD-CRT would be the only other, and less practical, options.
I had decided to migrate to my 55" Sony Bravia (Game mode enabled). Picture-output was above-average, however, screen-size (for gaming) &
perceived latency was far from optimal. I then began to shop around for an LCD-panel that would suit my needs as a competitive-gamer. After
several weeks, I had decided to purchase the BenQ RL2455HM LCD Gaming Monitor. Honestly, I figured that I would be sacrificing picture-
quality in exchange for higher-performance. Surprisingly, I was wrong.
I had noticed that many reviewers will complain about this monitor's color accuracy. this monitor gives you full control over the RED GREEN &
BLUE (each has its own intensity slider from 1 to 100 -affects brightness) Dialing in the 'perect' settings takes a reasonable amount of time
& effort, however, I will be providing a few suggested-setups that may be used as a reference-point in order to expidite the calibration-
process, for you.
I have provided the, current, display settings that I use for multiplayer gaming, below.
Try these settings for gaming (DVI / HDMI)
The following low-latency gaming settings are based off of the 'RTS 1' mode using Full-RGB Color Output.
*You must begin calibrating by, first, selecting the 'RTS 1' prior to altering the provided display settings:
Picture Mode :: RTS 1
Brightness :: 71
Contrast :: 43
Sharpness :: 1
Black EQ :: 0 -OFF
Color Temp :: USER : R->98 : G->92 : B->95 (Software Calibrated WARM User Profile)
AMA :: High -Sends extra voltage to the pixels in order to produce a smoother & more CRT-like on-screen motion (Pixel-Overclocking)
* -The side-effect is a lighter or darker outline on trailing edge of darker objects over lighter backgrounds (Pixel-Overshoot).
* -Typically, the less-aggressive 'AMA : High' setting would be the best choice regarding 'screen-motion vs. picture-quality'.
*((AMA :: Premium -slightly faster at the cost of more-noticeable overshoot / ghosting - this ))*
* -If you choose to use Premium then try using R->97 : G->84 : B->87 to help mitigate this, to some degree
Instant Mode :: ON (In other wods : Game-Mode - Enabled)
* -The LCD-panel's quickest signal processing-method
Dynamic Contrast :: 0 -OFF
RGB PC Range :: 0-255 (Must, also, set color output on gaming console or PC to 'FULL-RGB' reference levels)
Display Mode :: FULL
**User Color Temp Explanation**
(I use warm color-tone settings because these, generally, produce a deep & natural-looking image while, also, reducing eye-strain).
The '97-84-87' user setting is, actually, a personal favorite (Especially for BATTLEFIELD 1)
The '97-87-92' setting looks nice, also.
Adjust your Brightness & Contrast settings around these values & you should be good to go.
