10 Reasons For

Expert Reviews Are Average

Benq Has Excellent Reviews for Its PC Screens

Medium monitors manufactured by Benq have excellent reviews on average compared to other brands. We also checked the reviews for all PC displays (not just medium monitors) and found that Benq also has excellent reviews across its entire range.

Good Product Quality

Several Benq RL2240H owners mentioned that the Benq RL2240H was good quality. Expert website Tech-Reviews.co.uk wrote four years ago “The 21.5-inch LED backlit display is of an extremely high quality and there’s also a wide range of display modes for you to choose from” in their review of the Benq RL2240H. Chip.com.my said in their review “While the monitor is best suited for RTS gaming, its excellent display quality and fast response time makes it well suitable for other forms of gaming in general –”.

Reasonably Priced

A number of customers who purchased the product reckoned that it was good value for money. Pcadvisor.co.uk wrote on expert review site PC Advisor.co.uk “If you’re on a tight budget, BenQ’s RL2240H would appear to offer good value”. Four years ago expert review site Evogadget.com mentioned in their review of the Benq RL2240H “For having such a reasonable price”.

Good Picture Quality

One Benq RL2240H owner said in their reviews that this PC monitor had a good contrast ratio. Expert website Techarena.in wrote “1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio and a separate RTS Mode” in their review of this PC monitor.

Good Size

One customer who purchased it considered that it was a big size. Expert website Techarena.in said three years ago “The BenQ RL2240H is a LED monitor with a 54.6 cm (21.5") diagonal large size, specifically designed for real time strategy games” in their review.

LED Display Type

This PC monitor has an LED display type, which is typical of many LCD screens of a similar spec and age to it.

It may also be worth considering one of the other PC monitors that have an LED Display currently available including the AOC e2250Swdnk[plb_1364842_price], or the NEC MultiSync EA244[plb_2270820_price] which has better reviews.

1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Graphics Resolution

This PC monitor has a graphics resolution of 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080), which is typical of many flatpanel monitors of a similar age and type to it.

Chart Edit

Light

With a weight of only 3.2 kilograms, the Benq RL2240H is one of the lighter PC monitors of a comparable type and age to the RL2240H amongst flatpanel monitors of this age. The weights of medium monitors that have been on the market for around the same time as the RL2240H range from 3g to 39kg, and the average weight is 4.9kg.

Chart Edit

Very Fast Response Time

Across all the PC monitors of this age and type the response times range from 1ms to 40ms, and the average response time is 6.1ms. At only 2 milliseconds, the RL2240H has a quite fast response time compared to most of the other PC screens of this age and type.

8 Reasons Against

Poor Design

One customer wrote in their reviews that this PC monitor was not good looking. Techradar.com said in their review of the Benq RL2240H on Techradar “It wasn't going to be pretty”.

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

The RL2240H does not have a built-in speaker, although it is worth noting that most of the other medium monitors that have been on the market for around the same time as the RL2240H also do not have a built-in speaker.

Chart Edit

Not 3D Compatible

If you are looking for a flatpanel monitor that is 3D compatible then you might also want to look at the AOC d2757Ph[plb_1515695_price], or the Asus VG236[plb_2030776_price] which also has a higher rating.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader
