Design and Features
A departure from the usual style, BenQ's latest is striking — from its curved base, to its glossy black bezel, to the touch capacitive buttons on the front, it's sure to grab attention.
These looks though come at the cost of flexibility — the V2400W doesn't support height or swivel adjustment, nor does it have a rotate function — a simple tilt is all that's provided.
It features DVI, HDMI and VGA inputs, although BenQ is quite stingy and only includes a VGA cable, leaving you to buy a separate DVI or HDMI cable to get the most out of it. Considering you can find the V2400W online though for less than AU$500, we don't mind so much — just be aware you'll need the extra cables to save you from travelling back to the shop in disappointment after you open the box.
The on-screen menu is easy to access, however because the buttons are so long, it can be time consuming to navigate. The "Enter" button also functions as an input switcher, but this is not clearly marked. It offers five colour profiles — Standard, Movie, Dynamics, Photo, and sRGB. Depending on what profile is selected, different options are made available — Normal mode gets access to Brightness, Contrast, Sharpness and custom colour settings; sRGB is limited to Brightness and Contrast; while Movie, Dynamics and Photo only allow Dynamic Contrast to be turned on or off.
