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...

BenQ XL2420Z


LOVE this TN panel!! I actually bought the XL2420TE, this is basically the same exact panel just updated version ; 144hz refresh rate ; 1ms response time ; LightBoost ; Motion Blur Tech ; Nvidia 3-D Vision 2 ; Amazing colors once you calibrate...

Amazing Gameplay, But horrible colours


While great monitor all and all, for the Price there are definitely better choices, but this is definitely one of the better ones. Get it on sale, and that's only if you can't get the newer G model.

This monitor is a fantastic pleasure to use. It has great features like Motion Blur reduction, that takes some time to get used to (It heavily darkens the screen) And a great black equalizer feature. Wise of Pros, it is a great monitor

Well the big one is Price, I paid $340 for it with free shipping, but that was still a lot., especially considering at the time the Asus 144Hz was $240 (But out of stock). My biggest issue with this monitor, however, is the menu. When first accessed,...

Can i give it 10 eggs?


My display port cable actually got stuck in the monitor and the outer shell came off inside now knowing that i don't know if the display port part of the monitor is broken so i'll stick to dvi still getting the same results.

The monitor is great for long gaming sessions with no eye strain it comes with a Dvi cord that surprisingly supports 144hz so i don't see a need for a display port cord. NO ghosting is amazing *claps* playing any fps is amazing on this monitor the...

only one the monitor seems to not want to come out of hibernation mode when it goes to sleep and i thought it was my display port cable but i was wrong

144mhz ; Appearance ; Slim Bezel ; When I first set it up the colors were horrible. But that is expected of TN panels. I did have a hard time trying to get rid of the motion blur for awhile. It was so bad that it made me dizzy. But after some searching...

None now that I was able to get it to display the way I like. Might pick up another one :)

Great panel for gaming


Really good panel for twitch gaming. It does what you want it to without many problems. Looks like a really good TN panel compared to asus products. Buy it, doesn't get much better than this

Firmware version 1 in October, 10, 2014 ; Mine came with scratches on the metal base and some other problems with it specifically the HDMI port for my ps3 didn't go full screen 24" and had some artifacts with my pc's graphics card. DVI connection for...

Great step up from my 60 hz 1680x1050 monitor


I will tell you this right now, I was really indecisive when trying to pick out a new monitor because a ton of IPS fan boys kept saying that the colors on TN panels are horrific. That is not in any sense the case. I went to the store to compare this...

Colors aren't as bad as people say once you get them calibrated to your liking ; 144 hz really enhances your computer experience, especially in fps games ; FANTASTIC stand

None so far

Great monitor


The reason I'm giving this 5 stars is because the monitor is exactly what I was hoping for it to be and it wouldn't be fair to dock eggs just because the person I bought it from is shipping V1. Even then I ordered this 2 days ago and is already here...

The monitor is super clear and responsive which is exactly what I was hoping for

There are two key issues here and only one is the monitors fault ; 1) The colors are pretty bad depending on the settings, but let's be honest we aren't getting this monitor for color reproduction ; 2)Newegg, come on.....Still shipping V1 and if I want...

I could not be happier with this monitor. Fits my needs just fine. I do just about everything on my computer. From watching Movies, Gaming, Work, and general web surfing this thing just makes everything I look at great. My eyes are not tired from...

Picture quality on this gaming monitor is just amazing. No issues with dead/stuck pixels. No motion blur. The stand that comes with this monitor is perfect as well

The default colors need to be tweaked. Also on that note the menu options do leave me searching around to find what I'd like to tweak with this monitor. Honestly though, it is nice that you can change so many settings on this monitor, so it's expected...

Not the greatest UI ; Recieved firmware V1
