Summary: Had the monitor for 2 days now. I’ve been looking for a good monitor for a while, and this one is great. I received the XL2420T Rev2.0 if anyone is wondering, which is marketed as an XL2420TE overseas. The Rev2.0 has some upgrades over the XL2420T Rev1, namely 1ms GTG refresh time (vs 2ms), 144hz refresh rate (vs 120hz), and now uses a flicker-free panel (I’ve not noticed any flicker at 120hz/144hz, at brightness settings).
Great monitor with good colour accuracy for a TN panel
1 March 2014
Summary: I was looking for a high refresh rate gaming monitor and coming from an IPS panel I wanted to get a monitor with the best colour accuracy I could from a TN panel and from other reviews this one seemed to be the best. So for a TN panel the colour is pretty darn good actually, I'm also using a program called light boost to increase the smoothness and its amazingly smooth, I've actually found I've gotten a bit better at FPS games which is slightly crazy!
Summary: I don't really know what to say about this monitor apart from it's insane. If you play fps then you will be amazed by what 120hz does for your skill, the game is so smooth and it's much easier to aim. Make sure you have a good PC though as you have to be over 120 fps to experience 120hz.
Summary: I received 144hz (2.0 version) which I was after. Monitor is great for gaming, however you can see grid lines for each pixel from very very close. I wasn't happy at beginning as monitor needs some tuning as for me it black colour were too bright, even when much lowered (pale colours). Setting gamma to 0.85 in graphics card display settings have helped me much so really enjoy its colours now (I like to see dark places being dark in no fps games).
Summary: Gaming screen, can't say enough good things about this. An excellent screen, works great for gaming and looks amazing. I had problems with a different BenQ monitor and the customer service was excellent, they sent me another monitor very fast and even a new plug.
Summary: Got this monitor today a day early than expected .. thanks amazon .. going to keep this short and sweet .. out of box you will need to adjust the settings to your personal preference but i just youtubed a tutorial so very easy ! it literally took 5 minutes to set up very easy ! black equaliser is a good feature to have and the build quality of the monitor is brilliant ....
Summary: Went all out and built myself a gaming pc. gtx 780 sc acx, 3570k, z77x-ud5h mobo, 8 gb ripjaws and all the rest and this works great with my build. The 3d looks nice and was way above my expectations. (all depends on which games you play as some games are not designed) You might be better getting the benq xl2420tE because it has the built in emitter then you just need the glasses.
