Summary: I just started playing Call of Duty in Feb. I got a buddy who moved a few states away and it was a way we could stay in touch. I had been playing on my 55" Vizio TV and I was getting owned in just about every game. I had read and seen videos about game lag, host, modded controls and all the hacks, so I just assumed I was getting older and wasn't good at the game. I tried getting a Scuf controller and while that helped, I was still getting beasted in 7-8 games out of ten.
Summary: Excellent BenQ monitor. I was contemplating on getting the XL2720 or the XL2420 but this is just the perfect size for the hardcore gamer or someone who wants to pamper themselves. Coming with a dust cover is defintely a plus for anyone to baby their expensive 120 hz monitor. I didnt realize it before but you must change your settings to 120hz if it wasn't already. You can google on how to change that. It's simple but it makes a HUGE difference!
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.
Summary: Alright, after much research and arduous mental decisions, I finally decided on this monitor to upgrade my overall experience on the PC. It did not disappoint. 120mhz changes everything. Gaming is ridiculously smooth now. Everyday operations and internet browsing feels more responsive and in tune. My main hesitation on this purchase was all the negative reviews and comments I've read concerning the color quality out of the box.
Summary: First of all, if you want a monitor for gaming, this is the monitor you want. Yes, there are monitors out there that have better gamut, and DPI, thus resulting in a better text reading and photoshopping experience, but this monitor is AIMED at Gaming. Which is all that I do on my custom built beast. I run a i5-3570K, 660ti so I more often than not put out more than 60fps in a game. That's fine and dandy for a 60hz screen, because it looks smooth.
