BenQ XL2420Z review

 

Excellent colour accuracy and a high refresh rate make this a great screen for gamers - at a price

The monitor also has support for Nvidia's 3D Vision technology, which gives you active shutter 3D in games. This is an extra which many people will appreciate, although you will need Nvidia’s own 3D Vision hardware and a compatible Nvidia graphics card...

Very nice!

 

Basically put, this is a great monitor, and is a fair price. make sure your graphics card is capable of displaying 144Hz before you buy a 144Hz monitor. Almost all new graphics cards are (nvidia 900 series, radeon 200 series) Buy a 144Hz monitor if...

144Hz ; 1ms ; LED backlight (perfectly evened lighting, no bleeding around edges of monitor) ; DVI, HDMI, miniDisplay ports, USB ports, aux jack ; Sturdy, adjustable stand in both the y and z direction ; great color quality ; no motion blur at all...

Not Gsync compatible but when I read reviews of 144Hz regular and 144Hz Gsync it's not a major necessity. IMO it doesn't seem to be worth an extra $200 for Gsync unless you want to get that "little extra", which is like having a Titan-X gpu instead of...

Awesome monitor

 

All in all this is a good monitor the only thing that could make it better is a better selection for what input you want to use.

144hz - just make sure to enable on your computer. (also make sure to use the DVI port and the cable provided otherwise 144 wont work as HDMI and Display dont support the 144 refresh rate) ; I play CSGO quite often and could easily tell the difference...

A pain to swap between inputs. You have to hit the button just above the power then select menu, then display, then the input you want. No other monitor I have owned has needed to do so but no egg taken for htis ; Using for consoles adds a extra step....

This is the perfect FPS gaming monitor

 

This monitor, is amazingly beautiful. The colors are no different than the IPS panels (well for me) I lived with a 60hz IPS monitor all my life, upgrading to a TN 144hz panel have no color difference. I don't care if people see a difference in...

I'm so impressed, I don't even know what to say ; It's 144hz, and for the people who can't see any difference, need to go to a doctor as soon as possible. There is a huge difference. I can see a ULTRA HUGE experience in 144hz, even just by moving my...

Mines shipped with a tiny dead pixel, (1 dead pixel) in the middle of the screen. I can hardly see it unless I look very near into the monitor and it's still hard to find so I don't care about it. It doesn't ruin anything ; I can't feel any other cons

Consumer review by: Matthew V. (newegg.com)

It's very good. Like, wow.

 

I do not have a use for the add-on S.Switch since I just use it for my PC and have achieved my preferred settings. I imagine, though, that it might be quite useful for using the display with other devices, like consoles and such, allowing for quick and...

Its image quality is very good when the settings are finally at their best on both the display and the graphics card. I haven't seen any problems in the image that I've achieved. That's impressive for this monitor since I've been striving for...

All I can think of is that it's not an IPS panel, which would have genuine full color support

Great Monitor, Just needs fixing

 

rip

Black equalizer ; Everything worked out of the box, no drivers necessary ; Easy to adjust settings (if the panel works)

2nd BenQ I've owned where the menu buttons stop working after a month. Hoping they will fix the new one I bought

Beautiful Monitor

 

Games look absolutely amazing and movies, anime and videos are stunning too. The 144hz 1ms Response time makes it visually flawless

Out of box configuration is terrible. You need to configuration your monitor settings very well which can be a little difficult at first. Once you get the correct settings it looks amazing though. 5/5

CSGO Legenday Eagle Review

 

I have so many good things to say I wish I had more time to write a better review for everyone here as right now the layout of this review is going to look unprofessional.

There are a lot of mixed reviews about how much better people are getting by upgrading to a 144hz monitor, so I hope I can be the best reviewer yet when it comes to the difference you will experience ; There comes a point in CSGO where you've gotten as...

None so far
