Summary: It's a good monitor by now you should be buying the "Z" series. If you have bought this monitor and noticed it has a lot of ghosting and smearing try turning off "AMA" it will fix the issue. Also as other have said use lightboost Beware though as of writing this review nvidia drivers have broke lightboost it only works with AMD cards
Summary: I have 2 XL2720T that I use on my gaming PC. I find the color are very vivid and the games looks great at 120H. Only issue I have with it is the control are hard to use if I want to lower the brightness. The monitor comes with a external controller for quickly switching between pre-set modes but I have mine mounted on a stand about the desk and don't want to clutter my desk with these external controllers.
Summary: As I was afraid of it came with a dead pixel. Looking around the internet and reading the reviews I knew there was a good chance it would have a few dead pixels. The company that sold it was difficult and slow to return it(they wouldn't exchange it) so I decided I could live with one dead pixel. Come on BenQ, your products are world famous among the computer gaming scene. You need better quality control for the price you charge.
Summary: Overall I love this monitor. It's not as pretty as the higher resolution IPS models, but the fast response time, 120hz refresh rate, and slick design make it a great buy for FPS gamers. Physical Design The monitor looks very professional - no garish lights or logos you find on some gaming equipment. The stand feels very sturdy and is easily put together. It's easy to adjust the height, angle, and orientation of the monitor.
Summary: I didn't realize how bad the viewing angles were on TN panels. I've always had IPS panels. They say 160/170 degrees for the angles but contrast and color tones shift at about 10-20 degrees. That is probably the worst thing about this monitor. If you are keeping your head stationary while using it, everything looks fine after some calibration. The monitor is incredibly bright. So bright, that it hurts. I currently have brightness down to 5.
Summary: this monitor is truly awesome. You can totally tell the difference with the 120hz, It made skyrim look alot better, it has tons of customization... Great monitor. I would have given it a 5 except it arrived with dead pixels and i'm still waiting to hear back from the manufacturer.
Summary: I didn't quite understand the need for a 120hz display in gaming until I saw a friend at a LAN party using one. The smooth tracking you get in FPS games is totally worth the cost. I chose the BenQ XL2720T due to the fact that we use their displays at work. They make a great, high quality business display, so I expected the same in their enthusiast hardware. They certainly did not disappoint. Unboxing was a simple affair with everything laid out logically.
