To the layman, eSports (short for ‘electronic sports’) might sound like an oxymoron. After all, the idea that people play video games competitively for money is certainly a strange new concept. But the truth is, it’s an increasingly healthy money making venture. In fact, the industry is worth nearly half a billion dollars. As a result, more and more manufacturers are taking note and getting involved in one way or another. BenQ’s Zowie XL2540 monitor is one such example.

As with any sport, competitors in eSports are very particular about their gear. Monitors are no exception and BenQ knows this. Rather than offering 2k or 4k, this device instead has traded out super HD for 1080p. The compromise allows for an insane 240Hz refresh rate, because in competitive gaming every millisecond counts. The side-shielded 24.5″ monitor also comes with an S Switch – a 3-button quick-select for on-the-spot settings alterations. And several game-focused settings, which can be accessed via hotkey, come preprogrammed. It also boasts 20 levels of color vibrance settings, Black eQualizer for light balancing, and a non-reflective frame for reduced light distraction. There’s no word yet on the price, but we hope to see this stellar display sometime in the coming year. [Purchase]
