Summary: I bought this after I had such great experience with my first 120hz gaming monitor; however I had a much more ‘enhanced’ experience with this monitor. I did my research before buying the XL2420T and realized that this was the monitor to get if you were very for professional FPS gaming and that was what I wanted. The movements that you’re able to move the monitor, such as the left and right swivel and also vertical movements are absolutely amazingly brilliant.
Pros: Extremely enhanced monitor with LED backlit, multiple ports of input display, FPS pro gaming monkiter
Summary: This monitor is great indeed, well worth the money if you love gaming. The only negative thing I can say about it is the glossy plastic parts on the monitor (act as a dust magnet) since this annoys me with any monitor.
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.
