BenQ XL2420T vs Dell U2711

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi,

I have a Samsung T240 and I want to upgrade it to either the XL2420T or U2711.
I've read a lot of great things about the 120hz of the XL2420T, unfortunately they're not available locally so I can't go and see for myself.

I wanted to know which of the two would you recommend for (mostly) playing Diablo 3? Does the increase in resolution for the U2711 top the added smoothness of the XL2420T? Or perhaps I should hold off and wait for a combination of the two, if there's going to be one?

Thanks.

(btw, I plan on upgrading my rig, so ignore it for now)

If you like reverse ghosting, phantom images, low contrast, high energy consumption, go for U2711.

Bottom line - good for photo editing, bad for gaming.
