Zowie XL2540 – Review


The Zowie XL2540 is a 24.5in monitor with a 1080p screen, which makes it £390 price look huge – so it's going to have to work hard to justify the outlay.

Zowie set its stall out early with this screen, which has a high price but numerous features that’ll give competitive gamers an edge: the 240Hz refresh rate is huge and enables fast, smooth gameplay, and the 1ms response time is excellent.

Best 240hz in the business


So, I wasn't keen on buying this at first but when it finally arrived and I set it up, I was amazing with how sleek it was, the side panels are optional to place onto the monitor, 240hz with clear colours and black EQ... what more could you ask for?...
