No problems, I even tried with 120+60+60, but as one of the 60hz was doing some bad noise.. I just use 120+60 now. Just remember to enable GPU scaling for each screen.

Tested how it would handle game that was going little to both monitors with WoW(windowed), and the 120hz part was performing as 120hz. while 60hz part was performing like 60hz(~laggier ofc). So no issues if you are playing multiple games for some reason and dragging them between screens.

PRAD.de's Reivew Preview is up (paid).......and the BenQ gets a Very Good Rating, which is their highest rating.
+60hz input lag 7.9ms (good for console gaming)
+120hz input lag 4.9ms
+I've read most of PRAD's reviews and the BenQ seems to have the shortest (fastest) response times
+No light bleeding (PRAD's review samples often have perfect back-lighting....cherry picked?)
+Accurate color in the Standard Preset and good contrast
-Interpolation/scaling features don't work that well
+/-Turning off the AMA over drive feature results in much, much slower response times (why turn it off?)
---

is this correct?

have u paid for the preview?

is xl2420t input lag lower then xl2410t?

I tried MW3 in window mode no border full screen on the 120hz and another window open on the 60hz and it was so laggy tried every combination of scaling gpu / display possible, I guess it is a game to game based thing

Would resellers sell the XL2420TX at a lower price compared to the one listed in BenQ when it is released?

I believe the TX model to be a factory exclusive. Who knows how many pre-orders they have so you might want to set up your pre-order soon or you could miss the first wave of these coming out. Speaking of price this monitor is a steal for the amount of options it has compared to its competition. If you think 500 is expensive for a 120hz monitor go check out the samsung 950 that's 23" with half the features of the TX with no IR emitter, terrible adjustability, no vesa mount and its 50 dollars more. Add in it comes with a 150.00 Nvidia 3D vision glasses kit the TX is a no brainer. The only comparable monitor the Dell W2310 although 100 dollars more but again it 23" with no IR emitter but at least has good mounting options and comes with the Nvidia kit not some cheap 3D glasses from samsung.

+REP. yep. exactly why I have it on preorder!

I was thinking if I'm spending this much on a monitor might as well get 3D Vision with it and all the possible inputs, the awesome height adjustment, the nice red paint, the useful headphone holder etc.

for 500$ that's really good.

I previously purchased the V3D245 which came with NVIDIA Vision 1 which was $50 cheaper.. and I don't regret returning it for this 500$ BenQ. at least as of yet lol
post #280 of 531
So how has your guys experience been with this monitor? I still wonder how this compared to Samsung 750/950D. Any issues like the XL2410T - dead pixels or blacklight?

BTW - I know some people keep refering to the prad review...but I tried to find other reviews...not many "legit" looking reviews on this monitor, since it's so new. But I did find this review: http://extrahardware.cnews.cz/benq-xl2420t-120hz-rychlik-pro-narocne-hrace-recenze?page=0,9 (translate to English)


Pros:

+ Very fast response
+ low input lag
+ 120 Hz
+ support 3D Vision 2 (Lightboost)
+ programmable buttons and modes
+ attractive, yet practical design
+ excellent stand and positioning
+ all entries in the new versions, especially 2 x HDMI 1.4a
+ hub USB
+ driver for easy switching of programmable modes
+ picture settings suitable for E-sports and playing in stereo 3D
+ interpolation image a wide range of
low power +
+ Czech OSD and very nice Czech instructions

Cons:

- bad viewing angles (TN)
- not even the backlight
- none of gamma presets is not close to the sRGB setting, unnatural image in photos, etc.
- absurdly set (and confusing) as the Photo mode
- luminance below 130 cd/m2 available only in certain modes (for the price and low contrast)
- substandard value of color variations, inaccurate sRGB coverage
- matt anti-reflective coating with pearl / dirty effect
- restless image (PWM, or FRC)
- stepped transitions shades close, the worse the FRC works
