BenQ V2410: Back In Black

BenQ V2410 - Design & Features

Clean & Nice


The V2410 is clad in black, so it's visibly less ostentatious or distracting than its V2400 predecessor. Similar to BenQ's recent range of monitors, the V2410 is pretty easy to assemble with little screws or fuss involved. All you have to do is to slot the spine into the base provided, twist the lock located below its stand, and you're set. On the other hand, we noticed the entire setup is still a tad wobbly after securing the joints. While this baby is able to tilt back about 20 degrees, it doesn't swivel nor is its height adjustable. So do take note if you happen to be finicky about height requirements. Navigation wise, BenQ has made the right decision by placing the buttons on the right flank. No hard to reach controls here. An "Auto" positioning button is included into the usual mix. In the connectivity department, expect to find a HDMI 1.3 and an analog VGA port. If you're using an HDMI cable with an audio feed, you might want to know that the headphone jack is located at the left side of the panel should you need to tap the audio source. Blessed with a slim 21mm girth thanks to its LED backlights, we'd have to say the V2410 does sport a simple yet sufficiently charming design on the whole.

Hmm nope, that isn't some new age USB port. Just slide the V2410's spine into its base and you're good to go.

Don't forget to lock and secure the base after you've inserted the panel's spine. Flip the latch back when you're done.

A HDMI input for a 1080p screen. Nice. You can still fall back on the VGA option if you're using a legacy display card though. However DVI port users would require a converter to interface with the HDMI port.

They might not be touch-sensitive controls, but BenQ's layout is one of the best we've seen on a monitor. They're easy to access and manage.



As it is, the V2410's GUI is very much similar to the rest of BenQ's recent V-series range. Under its Picture Mode, we find the usual color presets (exotically dubbed as Senseye Human Vision Technology by BenQ), which include a Standard, Movie, Game, Photo, sRGB and Eco settings. Like most LCD displays, the Gaming and Photo settings gives you the most vibrant, albeit jarring picture quality. If you prefer to fiddle with the panel's dynamic contrast levels, note that it is only possible to do so with the Movie, Game and Photo presets. To add, we found a HDMI RGB range setting as well under its "Picture Advanced" tab. You can choose RGB (16-235) if you're dealing with lower 8-bit sources, else we'd recommend using the full RGB (0-255) range instead. In the "Display Mode", a few aspect ratio tweaks are given, such as Overscan, Full or Aspect. You might need to manage these if your source does not confirm with the monitor's 1920 by 1080 pixels native resolution (16:9 aspect ratio), or if it has trouble scaling the display to the appropriate size. Other than that, the same typical visual tweaks apply, like Contrast, Brightness, Sharpness, Gamma and Color options. 

We only got to fiddle with the dynamic contrast levels in certain modes, like Movie for example. Of course, these are the settings shown before we set it back to sRGB mode for our tests.


The Good
Affordable 24-inch display
Decent performance for its price
The Bad
Unadjustable height
Tricky balance between blacks and finer details
