<![CDATA[<p><strong>Racing Gets Real with the BenQ XR3501 Curved LCD Gaming Monitor</strong></p> ]]> 2015-05-19 00:00:00.0

EINDHOVEN, THE NETHERLANDS, June 12, 2015 – How real do you want your racing? Do you want to feel the engine rattle your bones and your stomach drop as you take a banked curve at nearly 200 miles per hour? Get ready, because BenQ, a world-leading human technology and solutions provider — and professional gaming monitor pioneer — today released the ultimate high-performance curved LCD monitor designed for a more immersive racing experience: The XR3501. Created for demanding racing gamers, the XR3501straps players in the driver’s seat with its 2000R curvature — the most of any LCD monitor — and extra-wide 21:9 aspect ratio.
Racing gamers want a real driving experience, and that is exactly what the XR3501 delivers in a high-speed feast for the senses that will have players living every heart-pounding moment of the race. Designed with extensive input from experts on and off the track, the XR3501 features a full 35-inch screen and 2560x1080 resolution for visuals that will make you brace for every intense turn as you fight to break free of the pack. The 144Hz refresh rate keeps the action flowing smoothly for an experience that is as real as racing gets without a trip to the track.

Immerse yourself in the action
The ultimate racing game experience unfolds when you lose yourself in the action. The mundane world of your home or office fades away and you are transported to the Grand Hotel hairpin at Monaco or the pits at Talladega. XR3501’s 2000R curved screen puts the roadway right on your desktop. The concave 35-inch screen wraps around your peripheral visual range, making it easier to feel the thrill of speeding through city streets or making the dirt fly in a backroad rally. But before you get too lost in your virtual race, remember there are others maneuvering for the checkered flag and winner’s circle, as well. The XR3501’s extra wide 21:9 aspect ratio gives you significantly more space to keep an eye on your instruments and fellow drivers.
Virtual racing has never felt as real as it does with the XR3501. The monitor’s 2000R curvature is the most of any LCD monitor on the market, and that adds up to a driving experience that is the closest thing on a desktop to getting behind the wheel of an actual race car. Coupled with the monitor’s 144Hz refresh rate, you will swear you are in the heart of the action as scenery wraps around you with breathless fluidity.

See every detail
Lighting fast reactions don’t count for much if you can’t see the next turn. The XR3501 solves this with crystal clear 2560x1080 screen resolution and vibrant colors that will have you seeing every detail, from the decals on your opponents’ cars to the roadside grass and leaves on the trees you speed by. 
The XR3501’s Color Vibrance feature allows you to easily adjust color and detail settings based on your personal preferences. Lighting changes can hide critical details. Do the other cars seem to vanish in the darkness of a tunnel? Throw some light on the problem with Black eQualizer, boosting the brightness of darker regions of the screen without blowing out the well-lit areas. Now you can see every detail without sacrificing image quality.

Feel the speed
Nothing can pull a racing gamer out of a fully immersive experience faster than jerky, stuttering visuals and animations. The XR3501 keeps the action fast and smooth with the help of its 144Hz refresh rate. The higher refresh rate eliminates blurring while lending a more natural look to everything from other vehicles to passing scenery.
The XR3501 curved LCD gaming monitor is expected to retail in the second quarter of 2015. Slip on your driving gloves and prepare for real racing as you have never experienced it before.

Experience Gaming Like Never Before with the Finest, Smoothest and Fastest Display Performance
The XL2730Z is built to exceed your expectations with performance-driven features a professional gamer could ever hope for. The finest image details are delivered by a QHD resolution, the next step up from full HD. With up to 77% more on-screen space, everything is clearer and sharper. The smoothest motion and maneuverability are made possible by 144Hz refresh rate, a blistering fast 1ms GTG response time, and Motion Blur Reduction. All fast-moving action and dramatic transitions are rendered smoothly without smearing or ghosting. So every movement made can be displayed simultaneously on screen. The fastest response time is enabled by VESA Standard Adaptive-Sync, which is incorporated into the XL2730 to support all Freesync-compatible AMD Radeon™ graphics cards to deliver a stuffer-free performance.

Precise Control: Take Charge of Your Gaming Destiny
The XL2730Z is meticulously developed to optimize the gameplay from optimized visibility to color precision and tailored user experience. There is the proprietary Black eQualizer color engine technology, which maximizes visibility and preserves critical details by brightening dark scenes, and the 20 levels of Color Vibrance settings that meet gamers’ specific viewing requirements and preferences for all genres of games. For a customized viewing experience for in-game simulation or personal preferences, there are the 8 screen sizes of the Display Mode (17”/19”/19”W/21.5”/22”W/23”W/23.6”W/24”) to choose from and the Smart Scaling feature to further fine-tune the screen size. This customized viewing experience is extended to the hardware design of the monitor, with the adjustment scale designed to mark down gamers’ unique monitor settings so the same experience can be delivered each and every time. Last but not least, gamers are free to access a wide selection of gaming presets designed by legendary gamers and use them to their advantage with the Game Mode Loader.

Intuitive Experience: Gameplay Made Ever So User Friendly
BenQ has incorporated several features to build the friendliest gaming experience. The Display Pilot offers convenient on-screen display adjustments and instant access to various features. The Auto Game Mode automatically detects the genre of game being played and matches it to its preset color setting. The Game Mode to Go feature lets gamers save their screen settings and import them to another PC via a USB flash drive or Cloud at a different location. Furthermore, there is the S Switch. Sporting a round, compact look, this hardware gear offers a better grip and an auto key that enables quick switching between auto game modes and customized modes.

Gaming Eye-Care: Added Eye Comfort for Long Duration of Gameplay
To safeguard gamers’ eyes from the exposure to harmful blue spectrum lights and eye-discomforting flickers, the XL2730Z is built with BenQ’s Low Blue Light Modes and Flicker-free Technology to reduce blue spectrum light emission and eliminate flickering at all brightness levels, reducing potential eye damage and physical discomforts in exchange for a more comfortable gaming experience.
