Has anyone actually been able to order one?

The BenQ website shows them as being sold out... but I didn't know that they even went on sale? :cry:

holy shit it has a terrible design, straight from 2010. benq pity money for designers, terrible campaign with good marketing and PR.

Is the 2411k also going to be 240Hz or are they releasing a new 144Hz model with a "new" design? Who needs a 144Hz monitor in 2020-2021? For 250-300 $ you can buy 240Hz, for example, acer.

oof, fiber isn't available at my place either, but I managed to get VDSL with 10mb/s down, and 3.5mb/s up for 22eur a month (slovakia)

No need for the lengthy explanation on the OSD for me... I just wanna see all the options and submenus.
That is insanely expansive! I have 100mb/s down and up for 40 Euro a month (including TV).

Saw this while scouring reddit

Figured I would post here instead of making a new thread.

Well, these news aren't really exciting, are they? I was quietly hoping for 360 Hz announcement from Zowie. The changes in "K" version are basically just cosmetic and ergonomic, though I surely appreciate the smaller stand, as it fits my peripheral space management needs better (I absolutely love ASUS VG279QM stand). Anyway, I'll be testing it on release probably, as it has that 0.5 ms GtG panel (Fast Liquid Crystal as BenQ Zowie calls it), so it should remain superior in terms of motion clarity and FPS performance. I have a high disbelief these new 360 Hz IPS can beat motion clarity of top-class TNs, but I surely would like to be pleasantly surprised. My ASUS VG259QM is arriving on Monday, so I'll make my final comparison, it's most likely the only IPS panel that can actually beat TN from what I've seen on this forum.

I just checked local news now, BenQ Zowie XL2546K will be available in my country in October for 2399 PLN (about 640$ based on current exchange rate). I'm definitely testing it on release :D
Did you get the VG259QM? Would like to hear your opinion on it.

Reads like they're disappointed with response times currently, and their ability to provide 360Hz strobing.

why would you say that?
maybe the technology behind 360hz strobing is rather expensive for the current market and they are making all the necessary preparations for the mass testing and production with something that will come naturally in year maybe two rather naturally as market progresses. and on top of that, it will be a huge upgrade.
