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 review


This gaming monitor bests its rivals on the notion of motion

1ms response rate ; Crystal clear image ; Adequate video inputs

Finicky touch buttons ; No built-in speakers ; Super pricey

The BenQ XL2720Z is a lightning-quick, premium gaming monitor that will serve any FPS fan well, bar none.

BenQ XL2720Z


The XL2720Z is a large, feature-packed gaming monitor that includes a motion-blur reducing mode, ultra-low input lag and even has a remote control for using the on-screen display. A step down from the higher-resolution, FreeSync-packing XL2730Z, it's a...

Excellent gaming performance ; Good ergonomics ; Loads of AV inputs ; Blur-reduction feature works well

Price just too high for resolution and image quality ; Doesn't have FreeSync

Best display I've ever used for gaming!


I thought the screen size may be a little too big being a 27in and I wouldn't be able to cover the whole screen area very well. However that has not been the case at all I would easily recommend this size.

As the title says this is by far the best display/monitor I have ever used for gaming. It has the snappy response of an old CRT and while not quite IPS level color depth, it sill is very vibrant and does everything you need it to do. I have been PC and...

None, Ive loved it so far.

love it!


Paid $379 on newegg sale. Works fantastically with my Nvidia 3-D vision 2 because of its built-in support which has to be seen to be appreciated.

This monitor is one of the best investments I've made for my gaming rig second only to my 980 TI card which works perfectly with this monitor. Although it doesn't have Gsync everything else about this monitor and how it improves my overall gaming...
