BenQ RL2455HM LED monitor
Total control and viability with Black eQualiser technology.
Command and Visibility for Tool Control

Built to set the benchmark for RTS gaming monitors, the RL2455HM is a testament to the belief that ‘gaming is in the details’. Every feature and function has been meticulously thought out to provide RTS gamers with vital visibility and command to achieve peak performance.

Teaming up with Players of League of Legends

BenQ continues its co-operation with players of League of Legends, who represent Gambit Gaming, Alex Ich, Diamond, Darien, Genja and Edward (previously known as Gosu Pepper). The Gambit players, who had barely made it out of the Intel Extreme Masters Katowice group stage, impressed everyone with their trademark aggressive play.

The Black eQualiser Gives You Total Visibility

The Black eQualiser has been co-developed by BenQ and professional gamers to give gamers an unprecedented level of control and visibility. Via colour engine technology, dark scenes are brightened without overexposing white levels to retain high-quality image details. Black eQualiser allows gamers to easily spot their enemies in critical combat, enabling them to react quickly in any situation.

RTS mode Ensures You Would Play Like a Pro

During product development and testing stages, BenQ’s product team fine-tune the display performance of the RL2455HM. Every feature and function has been provided to RTS gamers with vital visibility and command to achieve peak performance. What they came up with is the pre-set RTS mode that adjusts your monitor settings accordingly for optimum RTS gaming. There are two modes of play on offer - the RTS I mode for StarCraft II and the RTS 2 for Dota II. The pre-set mode will be your ultimate secret weapon.

Gaming Comfort Flicker-free Technology

Developed in collaboration with pro gamers, the RL2455HM has been upgraded to eliminate flickering at all brightness levels. This effectively elevates gaming performance through high visual comfort for even the hard-core gamers enrolling long hours in action. Armed with the Gaming-comfort Flicker Free Technology, the BenQ Gaming Monitor is an epic weapon over your ultimate rivals.

Customise Your Viewing Performance

The Display Mode and Smart Scaling features allow you to change the monitor view to suit you, and to simulate any in-game experience. Interchange instantly between four different screen sizes from 17”, 19” and 19”W, 21.5”W, 22”W to 23”W using the Display Mode. Or take advantage of the Smart Scaling feature and enjoy the flexibility to freely scale the screen content to any custom size.

    Firstly, I am a gamer who uses PS4 and PC, coming from and old acer VGA monitor and an old 24 inch 720p TV! I have had the monitor for around 2 months now, it is my first bought specifically for gaming so please continue reading to find out how I felt about it!

    Delivery, First Impressions And Setup:
    The monitor was delivered very quickly in 2 days and as soon as I opened it I knew that it was going to be of high quality. Everything from the box to the accessories was well made and felt expensive. The monitor came with a DVI cable and a VGA cable which surprised me a little bit actually, it also came with a nice two-part stand to mount the monitor on. The setup was extremely easy, all I had to do was click together the two-piece stand and slide it into the back of the monitor. The power cable (came with the monitor) was attached and I then added my PS4 and PC both via HDMI connections.

    The First Experience With Gaming:
    The very first thing I did was boot up Grand Theft Auto 5 on PS4 and jump straight into single player, WOW did I notice the difference coming from and old 24 inch 720p TV. Actions felt smoother and quicker and the picture quality was amazing! It was so much brighter and more vibrant than anything I had used before. The black eQualiser feature seems to work great, as I have noticed that colours look stunning. Dark scenes are just bright enough to give good visibility without being oversaturated and overexposed.

    The Bad Things:
    As far as I am concerned there is only one drawback to this monitor which is the speakers. As I consider myself a bit of an audiophile I noticed this immediately. When playing music it seems like it is playing through a pringles can!

    This is truely brilliant as a console gaming monitor - if you calibrate and set the screen display properly!

    The out of the box settings look awful, at least on a PS4 - the colours are way out and the gamut/contrast levels are off. I think this initial contributes to some of the not so good reviews that are out there for this.

    If you calibrate it with professional calibration kit, it makes this *perfect* and incredibly good value for money.

    I'll save you having to do that - if you purchase this, simply set the monitor to the below settings through the control panel.

    These should also be the optimal settings for the 24" version of this as well.

    Brightness: 27
    Contrast: 50
    Sharpness: 5
    Color Vibrance: 10
    Low Blue Light: 0
    Gamma: Gamma 3
    Color Temperature: User Mode (R:97, G:98, B:97)
    Instant Mode: ON
    AMA: High
    Picture Advanced:
    Picture Mode: Standard
    Overscan: OFF
    Display Mode: Full
    HDMI RGB PC Range: RGB (0~255)
    Smart Focus: OFF

    The speakers arent great - but what monitor has great speakers? most people use external sound systems/speakers or headphones anyway.

    Highly recommended for any console gamer for an optimal gaming experience.

    Okay so, if you are looking for a monitor to game on for console at a low price. You have found it! Back when I purchased this monitor I found it to be the best price to performance monitor there was which had a nice black and slight red accented theme. The reason why I say this is the best monitor for a console is:

    It has a TN panel, this means that the monitor is very responsive and it is what you need if you are playing anything like COD or Battlefield, which require the gamer to have quick reaction times; as shown in the 1ms (milli second) response time. For those who don't understand this, it just basically means that this monitor will process what it coming from its source (ps4,xbox1 etc) in one millisecond. This is the fastest response time you can buy which is why I say its a great monitor for fast action games.

    Also, this is a great monitor for console gamers because it has a perfect resolution of 1920 x 1080. This means that this monitor will output 1080p, which is the highest resolution the current generation of consoles can output. Furthermore this monitor comes out of the box at a 60Hz refresh rate, which means that the maximum number of frames your graphics card can output is 60fps (frames per second). However, this monitor can be overclocked to 75Hz which pushes its boundaries from out of the box. I have not bothered to even find out how to overclock my monitor, but I have read of people overclocking this monitor on forums, this is because for console gaming I don't need to overclock the monitor as it will be pushing itself harder than normal for no extra gain for my gaming as current generation consoles only output 60fps at maximum at 1080p I believe anyway.

    Bought this monitor as an upgrade from my previous Benq monitor - the GL2450HM. It is, in every aspect, a superior monitor.
    I currently use a dual monitor setup for my PC and another monitor for console gaming, with this being the monitor for gaming.
    From my previous experience with Benq, I decided to once again go with them for my newest gaming monitor. Promises of 1ms response times, Flicker free pictures and the dual HDMI sealed the deal when purchasing this monitor, despite it having no reviews.
    The monitor itself was purchased directly from amazon for just over £200, which is £70 more than the 24" version of this monitor, and in fairness, that price rise is quite steep when contemplating both sizes.
    However, for me personally, the step up to 27" was welcomed, and definitely worth it, although if on a tight budget, I'd say that the RL2455 may be a more appropriate option.

    If you are a gamer like me, you may also be concerned about 1080p on a 27" monitor, and people saying you should get 1440p instead. For console use, this wont matter, as the current generation of consoles only support up to 1080p. However with PC gaming, you would benefit from a higher resolution if you graphics card can support it, but there is a big jump in price to get a similar monitor with that resolution. Even at 1080p on my PC, the monitor displays games perfectly fine.

    Service from Amazon was great, ordered on a Monday with 3 Hours before the next day delivery cut-off and it was delivered the next day at 9:15am, having already been dispatched the night before.

    Within the box, there is the Monitor, Stand (detatched), UK Mains plug, EU Mains plug, HDMI Cable and Audio Cable (3.5mm).
