7 Reasons For

Average Expert Reviews

Based on five expert reviews from sites including PC Mag, prad.de, IT Reviews.com and playwares.com the average expert rating of this flatpanel monitor is 73 out of 100.

Excellent Brand

We calculated the average ratings for all Benq LCD screens and also specifically for Benq medium monitors and found that in both cases Benq had excellent ratings compared to other manufacturers.

Good Picture Quality

One Benq RL2450HT owner who reviewed the product considered that it had a wide viewing angle. Pcmag.com said on expert review site PC Mag three years ago “Its color accuracy is a tad off and its viewing angle range could be better”.

Nice Design

One person wrote in their reviews that this PC monitor was ergonomic. Expert website Pcmag.com wrote “The BenQ RL2450HT is a 24-inch gaming monitor featuring a fast pixel response and an ergonomic stand” in their Benq RL2450HT review however they only rated it 3 stars.

Easy to Use

One customer considered that it was easy to handle. It Reviews.com mentioned in their review on IT Reviews.com “Great motion handling”.

1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Graphics Resolution

This flatpanel monitor has a graphics resolution of 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080), which is the most frequently found graphics resolution on medium monitors that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Very Low Power Consumption When in PowerSave Mode

The Benq RL2450HT has one of the lower power consumptions when in PowerSave mode (only 0.3 Watts) amongst medium monitors of this age. LCD screens of a comparable spec and age to the RL2450HT have power consumptions when in PowerSave mode of between 0.14W and 80W.

Chart Edit

7 Reasons Against

A Bit Expensive

One customer thought the Benq RL2450HT was not cheap. Expert website Uk.hardware.info said in their Benq RL2450HT review four years ago “We would even go as far as saying that the RL2450HT is a better gaming screen than the significantly more expensive 120 Hz XL2420T” .

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

The RL2450HT does not have a built-in speaker. Most of the other medium monitors that were released around the same time as the RL2450HT also do not have a built-in speaker.

Other LCD screens which also have a built-in speaker that you might also want to look at include the AOC e2260Swhu, the Samsung 320MXN-3, or the Neovo HX-24 (£691.20) which also has a higher rating.

Not 3D Compatible

Most medium monitors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the RL2450HT are not 3D compatible. The RL2450HT is no exception to this as it too is not 3D compatible.

If you want a PC display that is 3D compatible then you might also want to consider the D2769, or the d2757Ph both from AOC or the NEC MultiSync P241 which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

Most similar spec PC screens that came out more than two years ago do not have a built-in camera. The Benq RL2450HT is no exception to this as it too does not have a built-in camera.

We compared all the other flatpanel monitors which also have a built-in camera to this PC display and we think the Apple 27" Thunderbolt Display, the Philips C272P4, or the Lenovo LT2323z which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader

Most flatpanel monitors of this age and spec do not have an integrated card reader. The RL2450HT is no exception to this as it too does not have an integrated card reader.

It is worth also looking at alternative PC displays which also have an integrated card reader including the U2413 (£279.00), or the U2713H (£349.00) both from DELL or the Acer DA220 (£373.92) which is also higher rated.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Only HD HD Type

This PC screen has a Full HD HD type, which is the most commonly found HD type on medium monitors that are a comparable age to it.

Chart Edit

Heavy

With a weight of 6.1 kilograms, the Benq RL2450HT is one of the heavier medium monitors that have been on the market for around the same time as the RL2450HT amongst similar spec PC displays of this age. The lightest PC display of a similar type and age to the RL2450HT is 3g weight, the heaviest is 39kg, and the average weight is 4.9kg.

5 Other reasons to consider the Benq RL2450HT

Running Costs Are OK

The average 5 year running cost of the RL2450HT is £44 based on typical energy prices, which is typical compared to the other 998 LCD screens that have been on the market for more than two years.

1920 X 1080 Pixels Display Resolution

This flatpanel monitor has a display resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, which is the most commonly found display resolution on medium monitors that have been on the market for around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

LCD Display Type

The RL2450HT has an LCD display type which is better than the LED display type found on most PC monitors of this age and spec.

We compared all the other PC screens that have an LCD Display to this PC monitor and we think because of it's better review score, the Samsung 320MXN-3, the Apple 27" Thunderbolt Display (£850.79), and the Eizo ColorEdge CG246-BK (£1,570.62) is also worth considering.

If the display type of this PC screen is not good enough for you then you might also want to look at the e2250Swdnk (LED), or the i2476 (£104.99) (LED) both from AOC or the Barco MDRC-2224 (LED) which also has a higher rating.
