Esports News – Video gaming allows you to visit and see things ahead of its time—some may even say out of this world. Regardless, it comes as a no-brainer that gaming monitors are the very medium responsible for how things come to us visually. The vivid graphics and images from these first-person shooter, MMORPG, and MOBA video games should be presented the way they were meant to be. Hence, you need to have a leading-edge gaming monitor that can provide the full-fledged experience.
This week on Tipify’s gaming equipment series, side by side are two gaming monitors coming from the same consumer electronics company: BenQ EX3501R and BenQ PD3200U. The brand is a Taiwanese multinational company known for selling markets technological products, consumer electronics, and computing and communications devices; this 2018, their newly released monitors made their way to the top 10 list of best gaming monitors from various online publications focused on latest technology and gadgets. In this regard, we put the two to the test to see which one is worth your money.
This $850 USD monitor is on top of the game for its ultra-wide monitor. Its 35-inch size is equipped with 3,440 x 1,440 resolution, sRGB 100% color support, 300 cd/m2 brightness, and 178/178 viewing angle. It also has a High Dynamic Range (HDR) which can create a better, more dynamic-looking pixels—the main selling point for the best gaming monitors and televisions for a while now. For gamers using Windows 10, your computer might have a hard time keeping up with the HDR support and video applications of BenQ EX3501R. The best solution is to keep updating your device until Microsoft’s latest version can provide better support for the issues mentioned.
BenQ EX3501R also excels in the aesthetic and flexibility departments. The monitor’s backbone is built with adjustable metals with vertical adjustments of 60mm and tilt adjustment of between -5 and 20 degrees. The edges of the screen are sealed with ‘ultra-slim bezels’ which allows the users to immerse in the game with a flawless field of view.
Around $50 USD cheaper than BenQ EX3501R, BenQ PD3200U might be an equal or alternative—depending on how you look at it and what your preferences are. It has a 32-inch screen packed with 3,840 x 2,160 resolution, sRGB 100% color support, 350 cd/m2 brightness, and 178/178 viewing angle. All specifications are almost the same as BenQ EX3501R, but the most notable difference is its display: the 4K Ultra High Definition (UHD) support. It may not function as an HDR but Windows 10 and below can support it better.
As for the design and outer finish, BenQ PD3200U looks very simple and slick. One look at it and productivity will instantly cross your mind. At night or in the dark, it exerts Low Blue Light and Flicker-free technology which can make gaming more comfortable even without the lights on.

When you first start out you’ll be tempted to try to bet as frequently as possible, don’t. Wait for matches with good odds where you or the predictors know the teams. Never force yourself to bet, bet on matches that you are confident in. You may go days or weeks without placing a bet, you’re not in a rush, wait for bets you are comfortable and confident in and profit should follow.
If there’s any uncertainty, don’t place a bet. Save your skins for another day. There will be plenty of other matches that you can bet on.
Betting is always risky, that’s unavoidable. But staying inside a ‘safe zone’ will help cover you off from some really silly bets. When starting out with a low inventory, large bets placed on matches with 80%+ odds aren’t going to return much in general (on lounge, even less due to the inconsistent returns) but you’re still risking a large amount of your inventory for very little.
Equally, odds below 30% sound very, very attractive with huge returns possible. But if you don’t know the teams or all the details, it’s very possible the team doesn’t stand any chance. If you think there might be a chance, reduce the size of the stake or consider an ICB.
Always bet with a percentage of your inventory. Think, what happens if you lose an ‘All in’ bet, do you stop betting for the rest of your life, or just get your wallet out and go again? You may think there’s no risk, however there is always risk. If you’re placing a high bet, stick to an absolute maximum of 20% of your betting inventory.
Always leave enough to bet another day.
If you’re feeling angry or frustrated, your judgement get’s very cloudy. You’ll make a stupid bet and lose. If you just lost a big bet or are on a losing streak, instead of trying to force a bet, you should take a step back, calm down and just take a break, come back refreshed with a fresh mindset.
Betting blind is a purely relying on luck, if the underdog odds are 30%, that definitely doesn’t mean the team has a 30% chance of winning. It just means 30% of the betting community chose that team. A late roster change could mean there’s zero chance for the team to win. Check in with our predictions to help give you some more background on the game.
Use the lounge odds tracker to predict the final odds as the start of the match get’s closer. If the odds are increasing/decreasing for the team you intend to bet on the return may not outweigh the risk anymore. A huge significant switch of odds at the last moment may mean that something shady is going on, mostly in very low tier games, or a sudden announcement, E.g standin may have occurred.
Bookies will put up their odds based on their own expectations, as the bets start coming in they'll tweak the odds to ensure it's still profitable for them. That early stage is key to getting an edge on the bookies.
As soon as you feel like you have to bet again to recoup loses, you’ll feel compelled to make bigger bets with bigger risks. This often starts an endless cycle driving your losses further and further. Instead, after a big loss, take a day off from betting (or a week if was really big). .Keep to the proper bet sizing based on the risk of the match no matter what. You are not in a race to win it back, just take it easy.
Do not blindly follow betting site odds and think that they are correct to the true odds. If a betting site has ‘Team A’ as a heavy favorite, it does not always mean that it’s an easy win for ‘Team A’.
SK beat Na’Vi… Na’Vi beat E-Frag. That means SK can beat E-Frag now, right? No.
There are many factors which contribute to the team winning a match, these factors such as player performance, map selection, strategy and tactics which may not apply to other teams.
