Display Design

The BenQ XL2411K gaming monitor measures 24 inches and has an excellent, aesthetically pleasing design. And thanks to its simplicity in design, you can admire the monitor from a distance and while walking to your room.

The overall design has a matte black color finish to its frame. The monitor feels high in quality thanks to its quality plastic design.

Additionally, the stand has an excellent solid base thanks to its rectangular-based foundation. The stand can adjust in height, swivel, pivot, and tilt.

The monitor also supports VESA mounting (100x100mm) if you want to switch from the default stand to an adjustable VESA mount.

Also, the bezels are pretty big and could be built a little bit more thinner for better gaming immersion. However, you’ll still get the total immersion even with big bezels.

The XL2411K uses three physical buttons and has a joystick located on the rear side of the monitor, which is easily convenient to adjust and navigate through the OSD configurations.

You can also use the S-Switch remote to configure the monitor’s settings; however, you’ll need to purchase the remote separately because it doesn’t come with the XL2411K gaming monitor.

Unfortunately, the monitor doesn’t come with built-in speakers, which dramatically reduces the price cost. However, you’re always better off with dedicated headphones or a great sound system.

You’ll be able to find the connectivity on the bottom rear of the monitor, which consists of one DisplayPort 1.2, two HDMI 1.4, one HDMI 2.0, and one audio jack. And with a plethora of connectivities, you can connect to multiple electronic devices as well, into the XL2411K.

Overall, the BenQ XL2411K has an elegant design and is very simplistic. The monitor includes a joystick for the OSD, which is very convenient for navigational purposes. And along with the stand, the stand is well ergonomically designed, making the monitor sit on a solid foundation.
