Summary: Well guys as other reviews state that playing games (especially FPS) from 60hz to 144hz is just freaking amazing and I just couldn't be any happier with the results on such smoother game-play change in FPS games such as Battlefield 4, Rising Storm, CS:GO, Natural Selection 2, Far Cry 3 and many more.
Summary: As the title says, best gaming monitor there is.. It's huge,..it's 144Hz refresh. 120hz is fantastic, but 144Hz is just insane. Refresh makes a HUGE difference. It has backlighting that makes a HUGE difference. You can use strobelight on it for 2D web-browsing etc and it looks great. It's SO much easier/better on your vision/eyes for long duration computer use.. and let's be honest who under 50yrs old doesn't spend hours a day at a computer? Not many..
Summary: I don't just game on my computer, but I needed a monitor that displayed games well in addition to everything else I do. This monitor exceeds my expectations. It's bright and sharp in standard view and it has native support for nVidia 3DVision so the 3D display is awesome. I highly recommend it.
Summary: Monitor at 144Hz is really smooth and good, especially for FPS games. However, the default boot-up screen with the BenQ logo is too bright for my tastes. Luckily, there is a way to fix that via the service menu. 1. Turn off screen. 2. Turn on screen while holding the menu button (4th button from top) 3. Wait till visuals are displayed. 4. Use the menu button to access the service menu and turn off that pesky boot logo.
Summary: First thing I noticed about this monitor is that it is BRIGHT, by far the brightest monitor I've ever used. Games are super smooth and blur free, the 144hz and incredibly low input lag make this the ideal monitor for FPS games. I was playing Metro Last Light earlier today and it look stunning. For anything with black text on a white background you'll probably want to turn the brightness down quite a bit, it's like staring at a light bulb if you don't.
Never Realized how much I was missing on my monitor!

Summary: Before I got this monitor, I was using a Dell ST2210 21.5 inch monitor for my current rig. Needless to say, equipping a 60hz monitor with a GTX 670 graphics card does leave a lot to be desired. I was getting sick and tired of all the screen tearing, mouse lag from V-sync, and graphic let downs that the 2210 was giving me, so I decided to give this monitor a go.
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: 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.
Summary: This monitor is great and a true 120 hertz monitor, which is a great relief to my eyes over the years of having used an outdated dell monitor. I bought this 2 days ago, and it showed up on my doorstep before they even posted the tracking. It was extremely fast shipping. The stand is completely adjustable and able to be rotated left and right as well as up and down. Which is great, my last monitor I bought I had to return because of how poorly made the stand is.
