There’s plenty of choice in the display market when it comes to cheap all-rounders or screens aimed at media and gamers, but the business market has a rather limited choice by comparison.
BenQ’s new V2410T seems clearly aimed in this direction, and though its 16:9 aspect ratio and 1920x1080 native resolution might initially suggest otherwise, we can see it having serious appeal for the modern office.
The monitor has a rather bland, no-nonsense design. For example, its matt-black bezel is devoid of distinguishing features and finishing touches and simply sports a circular on/off button at the bottom right, with menu controls oriented along the right-hand side. It’s also delivered pre-mounted in a rather heavy, wide, flat base, and though this takes up quite a bit of desktop space, it does make the large 24in screen extremely stable.
The flexible design allows for height adjustment up to 21.5cm, a 90 degree range of swivel motion and -5 to 20 degree tilt, and can be rotated to portrait orientation if needed. The 2410T is extremely solidly designed so each of these adjustments is smooth and easy to make with one hand, and our only real issue here is that when rotating the orientation of the screen it ‘settles’ a little off-centre, so rather like straightening a picture frame on a wall, you may need to nudge the display round to an even position after adjustment.
This is an LED-backlight screen and as such is pretty thin at 2cm around the bezel, though a protruding section at the rear means it’s not as slim as some rivals. This feature is necessary to offer the required degree of support for smooth adjustment and to avoid the need for a separate power adapter.
