Summary: I goofed a little and thought that this monitor would have built-in speakers, but it does not. It has a headphone jack useful for HDMI connections that provide audio, and a USB port that could be used for speakers. I realize hardcore gamers will have hardcore audio and wouldn't use built-in speakers, but for the price of this monitor, speakers would be nice for non-game usage. In my case, no dead pixels, base and swivel are nice.
Summary: Like most of the people with this monitor it has been a good experience so far. The 120hz refresh rate is noticeable right away when you play FPS games. Another common i have with other reviewers is that the color set up for the monitor right out of the box is terrible. Colors looked good but the whites looked washed away. After about a week of tinkering with the monitor settings and my video card settings i have reached a good point.
Summary: What a great monitor!! Good colors, 120hz at 1080p, great stand, great remote for changing the settings, no screws required to put it together. Mine has no dead pixels, light bleed or defects. No its not IPS so don't expect it to look like one, for what it is, it's great!! I've had a 1440P IPS screen and prefer this one for gaming all day long.
Summary: I bought this monitor to use with my pc but mainly to game on my consoles which works well even though you can't take advantage of the 120hz. One thing about this monitor out of the box is that like everyone says on here you got to calibrate it right away cause the picture out the box just doesn't look right I almost returned it because of this.
Summary: I just received it, the packaging is great. The instructions are great. Overall a great product. The only thing you need to do is look up the settings for the monitor to make it work at its best.
Exactly as expected, including support with the XL2420TX

Summary: After purchasing a BenQ XL2420TX, I decided (after their support team said it wouldn't work) to purchase two XL2420T models for an Nvidia 3d Vision Surround setup. I connected the TX to the displayport on an NVidia GTX 660 card, and the two XL2420T monitors on the dual-link DVI connections.
