Display Design

The BenQ Zowie XL2546K monitor measures 25-inches and has an excellent aesthetically pleasing design. Thanks to its matte-black design, the display, in general, feels premium and has an excellent quality to the overall feel.

You can also find the cool BenQ Zowie logo on the top rear of the display and has a nice red finish to the design.

In addition, the monitor has a thick bezel design; however, it shouldn’t cause any immersion issues. But compared to other displays, the XL2546K’s bezels should have been thinner.

You’ll notice that both sides have a nice anti-glare shield to them, which is another excellent bonus that the XL2546K comes with.

The stand is ergonomically well designed; however, it may wobble just a bit due to its size and foundation.

You can adjust the monitor in height, tilt, pivot, and swivel, which is excellent if you want to view the monitor in different positions.

If you’re not fully on board with the default stock stand, you can swap it out for a 100x100mm VESA mount, allowing more freedom of movement.

You can find the OSD panel on the right rear of the monitor, which consists of three physical buttons along with a joystick. The buttons and joystick make it easier and convenient to navigate with the OSD configura
