Recently, Acer Malaysia announced a total of 7 new monitors to the Malaysian market. Two monitors caught my eye during the announcement – the new Acer ProSumer CB342CK and also the Acer Nitro XV340CKP. These two are very similar in specs – they’re both flat 21:9 monitors with 1440p resolution. The main difference here is the refresh rate. The CB342CK is at 75Hz, whereas the XV340CKP is at 144Hz. So I bit the bullet and went for the XV340CKP instead.
This particular monitor has a quite of hype surrounding it. It’s one out of two monitors that has 4K at 144Hz with HDR support. We first took a look at it during the ASUS all-out monitor showcase, and then there was another announcement for the availability and price of the ASUS ROG Swift PG27UQ. It’s RM10,999. It’s not something you see everyday in the market – and there’s no direct comparison for a monitor of such caliber.
We’ve seen quite a few of BenQ’s monitors before. They have a few distinct features when compared to others in the market – especially the Eye-Care. BenQ isn’t stopping with just Eye-Care this time around, as they’re adding even more features like HDR, Brightness Intelligence Plus, Super Resolution, and Smart Focus. With the growing suite of features that BenQ monitors have, does the EW277HDR have just the right features you’re looking for?
ZOWIE, the eSports-centric brand that is now under BenQ, a renowned maker of monitors, had its monitors seen in many major eSports tournaments over the years. ZOWIE monitors have also appeared in the Dota 2 Bucharest Major 2018. And here ZOWIE is introducing a special monitor – the XL2546. This monitor right here boasts a native 240Hz refresh rate and has one proprietary feature that will boost the player over the edge – like DyAC.
With BenQ’s acquisition of ZOWIE back in August 2016, all future BenQ gaming-related merchandise will be introduced under the ZOWIE name. Special thanks to BenQ
