BenQ is about to expand its monitor line-up with ‘S' variants of the EX2510 and EX 2710. The specs and looks of both monitors are very similar, with the major difference being the display size, where the EX2510S has a 25-inch panel and the EX2710S has a 27-inch panel.
The EX2510S and EX2710S gaming monitors feature an AHVA (IPS-like) panel with a FullHD resolution, 165Hz refresh rate, and 2ms G2G response time. Both panels have an 8-bit colour depth, 1000:1 contrast ratio, and 400nits of brightness, allowing them to cover up to 99% of the sRGB colour spectrum.
Like the original EX2510 and EX2710, the ‘S' variants come with a pair of built-in 2.5W speakers powered by treVolo and multiple colour presets to choose from. There's also a huge variety of gaming-oriented features, including Motion Blur Reduction (strobe backlighting), Black eQualizer, HDR10 support, FPS Mode, Colour Vibrance, Light Tuner, and HDRi (auto image calibration).
In the back of the monitors, users can find 2x HDMI 2.0 ports, 1x DisplayPort 1.2, and a 3.5mm audio jack. The included stand is very versatile, providing tilt, swivel, and height adjustment capabilities. There's also VESA wall mount support for 100x100mm brackets.
The monitors are available starting this month, with the EX2510S going for $299.99 and the EX2710S priced at $329.99.
KitGuru says: There's no lack of variety of 1080p high refresh rate displays out there, but only a few use the more expensive AHVA panels. Do you think it's worth paying extra for monitors using AHVA panels?
