BenQ has always been a big player in the gaming monitor space with its gaming sub-brand Zowie being a top contender. Recently, BenQ launched two new gaming monitors, the MOBIUZ EX2510 and EX2710 under the main BenQ brand. Let’s check them out and see what the MOBIUZ offers.
For the display panel, these monitors come in either 25″(EX2510) or 27″(EX2710). They are both 1080p FHD IPS panels that have a refresh rate of 144Hz. BenQ also claims to sport a 1ms MPRT response time. This, combined with FreeSync Premium, this should give you a pretty smooth gaming experience.
The MOBIUZ monitors also come with HDR support and BenQ’s proprietary HDRi technology. This technology optimizes the HDR content to give greater contrast and detail. You can learn more about it here.
The monitor can also be adjusted in terms of height, tilt, and swivel. In terms of connectivity, there are two HDMI 2.0 ports and a DisplayPort 1.2 alongside a 3.5mm headphone jack.
Another aspect that BenQ has been focusing a lot lately is sound. With BenQ’s treVolo division, they have been putting decent-sounding speakers in their monitors, which is no exception here. These monitors come with two 2.5W speakers and a DSP (Digital Signal Processor) with three customized sound modes.
While most gamers use headsets most of the time, there will be times where we just want to play casual games while listening to some music without fussing with a headset. In those scenarios, we would definitely appreciate decent speakers built-in on our monitors.
Other than the main stars of the show, we do see some signature BenQ features on the MOBIUZ as well.
Black eQualizer brightens up darker places while preserving the highlights. It makes it easier to see enemies especially in competitive first-person shooters like CS:GO and Valorant.
Eye-Care for EXtended Play helps you reduce eye strain and fatigue during long sessions. It’s been around for quite a long time and BenQ is definitely one of the industry leaders when it comes to this technology.
5-Way Joystick Navigator on the back helps you easily access and navigate the on-screen display settings.
Currently, the BenQ MOBIUZ EX2710 is listed at RM1,499 on their official Lazada store, with the EX2510 still waiting to be listed. We’re guessing that it will probably be cheaper than the 27″ bigger brother.
What do you think about BenQ’s new MOBIUZ monitors? Is it a good choice for both gaming and content consumption? Or would you still go for their Zowie monitors?
