After reviewing the 27" XL2720Z and the 24" XL2420Z, we've got our hands on a third Z-series gaming monitor from BenQ, the XL2411Z. All in all, it's pretty similar to the XL2420Z , with a matte-finish Full HD (1920 x 1080 pixels) TN screen panel, sup...
The BenQ XL2411Z is logically a less impressive monitor than the XL2420Z. However, it still does a more than decent job and comes with a less expensive price tag. It doesn't have as many connection ports as the higher-end option and contrast is lower...
