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.

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

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

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...
