I don't recall anyone specifically saying they hate it. AFAIR most people who have been nervous about bad color reproduction and other downsides of TN panels, especially fast ones, have been pleasantly surprised including myself. There has been some discussion about the OSD options both with the XL2410 and the XL2420, lots of annoying limits made by BenQ that don't belong in a $500 product, but these aren't major complaints.

This is exactly why I sent mine back. No amount of calinration with my spyder 3 Pro would make it look near as good as my Asus TN panel monitors. I also did not realize any noticeable difference in speed while playing. I also do not experience screen tearing with my monitor and did not see it in the BenQ at the 100-180 fps I get in BF3 in single screen mode. Maybe ti would be different in eyefinity but I did not want to spend 800 more for 2 more screens to see. So all in all There was no benefit for me to justify the 400 bucks. I like the looks of the monitor and adjustment, but that is not worth the cash.

Bought! Scored a good deal...

I once dreamed of the VG278H but was too afraid of problem and was worry about dot picth since I will sit close to the monitor.

I hope to get it tomorrow so I'll play with it all the weekend, but it could also arrive only Monday.

I can see the concern of always running in 3D mode since with HDTV's if you use the Dynamic Contrast and / or the Auto brightness all the time it will burn up the tv faster due to the electronics working harder constantly

Am I correct in understanding that all I have to do is hook up the new monitor with a DVI-D cable to my video card and turn on my computer, then go into the video display settings and click on update to a new video driver and select the correct montor folder from the supplied CD? Should I cancel the windows detects new hardware popup?

Thanks for the help and see you out there,

Well I recieved my monitor today and it does work with Windows XP and on my Nvidia Geforce 6800GT card. I did have to go into the display settings and manually update to the new video driver on the CD. The "Windows Detects New Hardware Wizard" did not automatically popup when I first started the computer after installing the monitor. Another weird thing was that after I plugged the monitor into the power outlet and I pushed the power on button on the monitor, the monitor would not power on until I turned on the computer. I think it sensed a video feed and then it powered on by itself. After adjusting the monitors' video settings this thing looked fantastic. My personal problem is I can't take advantage of the 3D glasses because I'm running such an old video card and outdated operating system. Also my outdated video card will not support 120 Hertz refresh rate at native resolution 1920 x 1080, only at 60 Hertz. The highest resolution on this video card that can do 120 Hertz is 1024 x 768. For me 60 Hertz is ok because I do not sense any flicker or mouse lag at 1920 x 1080 resolution. Watching Netflix and VUDU videos are not the best, but only because of the outdated video card. I have to run at 1600 x 900 60 Hertz for most Steam Source games and mods, BF 2, and BF 2142 will only go as high as 1024 x 768 120 Hertz. Otherwise this monitor is stellar in quality and performance. Hey, what more can I expect from a 9 year old computer, lol.

Thanks and see you out there,

Are you completely sure about that?

Dual integrated 400MHz RAMDACs for display resolutions up to and including 2048x1536 at 85hz.
Since 2048x1536 is 1.5x the resolution of the XL2420TX and it can do 85 Hz at that res, it should be able to do 1080p at 120 Hz. Theoretically. Try using a high 4:3 resolution (like 1280x960 or 1440x1080) 'cause the 6800 GT came out back when 4:3 monitors were still the standard.

Ye, I just checked, it seems the 6800 GT reference cards were without dual-link DVI, so that might be your problem. It's surprisingly hard to get any info on such an old card.

Well, I am using a dual link DVI cable with my Nvidia Geforce 6800GT video card. But the video card itself is not capable of producing 120 Hertz at 1920 x 1080 res. Hopefully by this time next year I'll be able to build a new rig and will take full advantage of all this monitor is capable of giving. Unless someone wants to give me $2,700 dollars for free now, lol.

Thanks and see you out there,

I want this monitor really bad but don't want to pay a premium for something that's not premium. I really would like a 24" NON-3D LED LCD 120 Hertz. Right now I have a Dell 2209WA IPS. So its gonna be hard to beat that. Picture quality matters most to me right now.

Hello ! Sorry for my bad english , but i hope you understand . I don`t see a major difference with 60 hz or 120 hz on my BenQ XL 2420T.I use the dual link DVI cable 120 hz from the package . I play CS with FPS 2 and i have some problems withe the image in fast action . Like someone push me when i shoots , you know when explod the bomb and the image shake a little from the power explosion , it is something like that . And some tearing , i don`t have choke or loss , my fps in game is 100 fps , not 1 fps under .
My Pc is good for counter strike , i5 2500 k , 12 Gb ram Corsair Vengeance , motherboard Gigabyte GA-Z68XP-UD3 , HDD 1 TB Sata III , video card Sapphire Radeon HD6850 1GB DDR5 256-bit .
Look at this test with pixperan for fast moves .

338

At you is the same ? Make the test

I played with AMA on or off , the same .

Maybe from my video card because is not a Nvidia ?

I want some advice smile.gif
