BenQ XL2720Z


The BenQ XL2720Z is designed for gamers and loaded with features. It's a bit more expensive than a typical 27-inch monitor, but if extreme gaming performance is what you're after, it's money well spent.

Great port selection. Excellent gaming performance. Fast pixel response. 144Hz refresh rate

Pricey. Finicky touch buttons. Narrow viewing angles

Once again, BenQ has a winner on its hands with the new XL2720Z ($529) gaming monitor. Like its predecessor, the BenQ XL2720T, the XL2720Z lets you take your game to new levels, with a fast pixel response and dedicated first-person shooter (FPS) modes....

BenQ XL2720Z Monitor Review: A 27-Inch, 144 Hz Gaming Display


Many displays are marketed as gaming monitors. But only a tiny handful operate at refresh rates greater than 60 Hz. The BenQ XL2720Z sails along at 144 Hz and offers many gaming-specific features. Today we run it through our benchmark suite.

BenQ XL2720Z Gaming Monitor


When it comes to PC gaming, gamers want the best of the best - from the best components, to the best keyboards, top-notch mice and everything in between, and BenQ is promising to deliver the best monitor possible with its latest XL2720Z. It promises to...

BenQ might just have the ultimate gaming monitor on offer, as its fast response times, huge 27-inch size and motion blur reduction features give it the edge against your conventional displays. Add in that it's fully adjustable to almost any angle, and...

Doesn't get much better!


The blur reduction would be great if it would allow the screen to maintain the brightness. I will work with a profile to see if I can use the blur reduction and enhance the appearance when enabled.

Great color right out of the box. 144hz refresh rate. Easy functionality. Large screen size. Simple to configure and match the color to my 2720T

Don't like the blur reduction since it darkens the screen. It dulls everything as well. It will take some tweaking in the profiles

Nice monitor


*I got this monitor when I did, rather than wait for a G-sync monitor, because my old monitor died, so if you're still just considering whether or not to wait, I would say wait. I will probably end up using this monitor as a secondary to watch video on...

27" is deceptively large on paper - upgraded from 21" almost didn't have enough room on my desk ; The colors are great, I ordered this monitor having only read about it from knowledgeable sources. I took a gamble since I'd not seen the monitor in...

Price - It's expensive. You expect it to be so, but it's still a hefty price tag ; No G-sync - not a dealbreaker for me right now, but likely would've been under different circumstances ; As someone else mentioned in another review, the blur reduction...

This monitor is awesome!!!


I highly recommend this monitor. I play CS: Go Competition and the 1ms response helps tremendously.

I love this monitor! The images look amazing; they are very smooth. I was playing with a 23" monitor-1080p and 60hz. However, this 27" monitor-144hz is awesome. It makes it easier to kill the opponent

None. It is a great monitor

Great Monitors


I'm now sold on BenQ monitors. This is my first one and I'll buy this brand again. Impressed by the solid quality and thought put into the feature set and construction.

Large format that also supports nVidia 3D ; Assembly was smooth and well engineered ; Comes with cover and steel handle for when you are on the go ; Rotates Landscape or Portrait ; 2 side USB ports, one head phone jack ; 1 DVI, 1 VGA, 1 HDMI

I haven't yet run into a con - but only had them for a few weeks too. I've been very happy so far

Buy benQ? Step up your game? Its more information passing through your mind! Why the **** not? XD

Beautiful screen, with low reflection. After changing all my personal settings, works exactly as i want it too ; 144hz is really THAT much nicer. lol, love it ; All the benefits described in ads, work as they should (same with my 2420t as well)

The swivel system can rock if u are not on a really sturdy desk. Usually rocks from left to right slightly when im tryin to game (this is more my desks fault, but non of my other monitors really do it)
