Summary: Awesome monitor, ive seen a few good ones but this ne takes the cake. Its biggest flaw is its hard to rotate at its stiff and too many settings as ppl keep saying. If you get it set up right its perfect. Havent tried it on 3d yet.
Pros: Amazingly Clear, Rotates Horizontal, 120 Hz
Cons: Can't think of any cons, except too many settings.
Summary: I was very indecisive between getting this monitor or an IPS. I read numerous reviews about 120hz monitors and how it's suppose to be a lot smoother for gaming and went with this one. Best decision ever. It's not just good for FPS games but you get an over sense of your computer screen being a lot smoother. I play WOW on it and it never looked better. Although the colors don't match up to an IPS monitor, the 120hz easily makes up for that.
Summary: I love the Monitor, and I payed a good price but there were a few issues. First of all if you buy the monitor off Amazon, you don't get to return it unless there are 7 dead pixels or 3 dead pixels within a square inch. If you were to buy the monitor from the Benq website you can return it for any reason within 30 days.
The only true gaming monitor; keep in cover when not in use!

Summary: Excellent monitor, perfect for gaming. No imperfections and I bought a refurbished model. I called the warehouse in California ahead of time stressing I wanted the best refurbished they had and told me they were all restored to factory quality. I Was using a 42" plasma display for a while and finally broke down and got this. The 3D is only available for use on the TX model. The 2420T that I bought was cheaper and I don't recommend 3D to anyone.
Best gaming monitor you can buy for under $1000.00

Summary: One thing must be made clear, this is a GAMING monitor. If GAMING performance is not your primary concern, then you should consider a different, less expensive monitor that will fulfill your needs much better than this one. This monitors design is built around 3 things, extremely high frames per second, stark contrast and low input lag, and it does all 3 very, very well.
Summary: One of the best gaming monitor's out there, I noticed there was no input lag, and I love the black equalizer:D, as a counter strike source player myself, those dark spots piss me off, but with this option, they can never hide again.
Pros: 120hz, Tilt, swivel, EVERYTHING, black equalizer!
Summary: I just bought this computer a few days ago and it is absolutely awesome. I havent tried the 3d vision yet. The 120hz is amazing. I will never go back to regular 60hz monitor. this is a good purchase.
Pros: - pretty good details, - very good brightness., - intuitive screen menu, - lots of input (dvi display port hdmi...), - adjustable height
Summary: If you are an avid PC gamer and are looking for the best gaming monitor on the market look no further! The BenQ XL2420T monitor is truly a revolutionary technical solution until IPS gaming monitors come to the market. I currently own three Alienware AW2310 OptX 120Hz 3D monitors and love playing games in surround. The only drawback to these monitors is that they are LCD and not LED and thus do not have a very good contrast ratio.
