BenQ XR3501

 

Curved monitors are gaining ground in gaming circles, with many preferring their widescreen designs to taller and narrower 4K panels.

BenQ XR3501 Curved 35" 144Hz Monitor Review

 

Last year, curved gaming monitors became all the rage with multiple releases from numerous companies. While Gamers naturally jumped at the opportunity

We went into this review hoping for big things from the XR3501. It is obviously meant to target a segment of the gaming market which doesn’t

BenQ XR3501

 

The BenQ XR3501 is an enormous ultra-wide gaming monitor featuring a 35-inch curved Vertical Alignment (VA) panel that delivers solid gaming and gray-scale performance.

Dark blacks. Immersive gaming experience. Good gray-scale and motion performance in testing.

Only 1080p resolution. Lacks USB ports. Tilt-only stand. Middling color accuracy on our tests.

Conclusion With the BenQ XR3501, you can enjoy immersive gaming action on a curved, ultra-wide, 35-inch screen with a speedy 144Hz refresh rate. Its VA panel delivers good gray-scale and gaming performance, and viewing angles are nice and wide....

BenQ XR3501 35-Inch Curved Monitor Review

 

BenQ's XR3051 high-contrast AMVA panel offers an impressive 2000R curvature and a 144Hz refresh rate along with some very unique attributes.

High contrast AMVA panel, bright saturated color, accurate, 144Hz, build quality, extra-immersive curve

No G-Sync or FreeSync, 1080p resolution, expensive

It seems that these days, no gaming monitor has everything. BenQ has created a unique product but a couple of omissions make the buying decision more difficult. Discriminating users will want G-Sync/FreeSync and at least QHD resolution. But others may...

Great gaming monitor

 

Size. Refresh rate. curved. Everything you want for gaming. The 2k res makes for better performance on your above average system. Not many people can run 4k at 144hz. The buttons on the bottom feel nicer than any other monitor I've owned. The stand is...

Would get 5 stars but vesa mount is sold seperate.

Complete garbage, huge cluster of dead pixels

 

First time purchasing a BenQ monitor, I don't think I will do this again. I'd give it 2-eggs, but I'm so disappointed it is hard for me to be positive.

Form factor, good packing, ample display port connections. In theory, would have been an amazing monitor.

Monitor arrived with a 2"x3" cluster of dead pixels. I mean, it was so big it made me wonder how this monitor made it past quality control. The monitor was well packaged so I doubt this was a result of delivery damage. Given the price paid for this...
