OverclockersClub uses DisplayMate Multimedia Edition to benchmark all monitors. After many hours of research, eye straining testing, and coming to the realization that the cost to purchase any mechanical piece of equipment that could truly benchmark a monitor costs in excess of five thousand dollars, DisplayMate Multimedia Edition is the perfect solution.
