As I can't get the official response time spec now, which actual response performance is faster? XL2546K or XL2546S? Specially in some store website shows XL2546S response time is 0.5ms, and XL2546K is 0.5ms~1ms, does it means XL2546S is faster?

On ZOWIE website, we didn’t show response time to XL2546S and XL2546K as well as all our XL & RL series. The reason is: there is no universal measurement standard to response time in the industry, which means: every brand have a different condition to claim response time, and this means that the response time (whatever number we claim) will not help customer to have a reference when making a decision.

It is also important to consider that different panels in the same model have deviation, so each panel won’t have the same exact response time performance.

This is why we remove response time to all our XL & RL series, as to avoid any misunderstanding. In addition, we fully leverage the panel’s advantage of fast response time, and also fine tune it as to ensure a good overall experience in-game, instead of just providing the smallest response time by number only. 

Regarding XL2546S and XL2546K specifically, they use the same panel, so the response time performance is the same.

If you have other question, please feel free to contact ZOWIE twitter and FB (#ZOWIEbyBenQ) for further assistance.
