Some pretty interesting feature for the benQ has been discovered to give really smooth gaming with NVidia I would be all over this if I had NVidia

I'm pretty sure that 50ms number came from a poorly done test over on Hard. The actual input lag should be around the same as other multi-input 1440p panels, which IIRC is around 20-30ms or about 1frame. Personally I haven't noticed a difference coming from a U2311H which has around half that, but my own reaction time is in the 190-200ms range anyway.

Unless you spend the VAST majority of your time playing computer games, the Auria is the better investment IMO.

Hi.

Is someone using this BenQ XL2420TX in 3D with Windows 8?

BenQ website stands compatibility just with Windows 7 (/Vista).

I would like just to be reassured all will be perfect (as happens with big brother XL2720T I do not want).

Thanks a lot.

Goodbye!
post #16 of 18
I would go with the Benq if you want straight FPS gaming performance or even better yet go with the 144hz Asus. If you want 1440p i would go with microcenter if you want piece of mind warranty and the extra ports. If you want to go for the best of both worlds the Qnix and overlords monitors will give you the best bet. Personally i would go for the Qnix if you can get a square trade warranty on it.

Only problem is stock is very limited, currently out of stock, they don't take pre-orders, and when they do post them in their store as in stock they go fast....

So, best of luck to you if you go that route, I am currently sitting on the refresh button waiting to order one myself.

P.S. I don't think forum rules allow me to put a link up, soooo.....just Google them.

EDIT: According to their Facebook they will have a very limited number of their OC models go up for sale at 2PM on the 1st....let the F5 war begin!

EDIT 2: Oh, as far as between the two options you did provide, get the 1440P display, gaming at 1440P is just bliss.

The Overlord is a waste of money...and I don't know where the hell you're getting $450 from, but it's more like $550 with shipping coming to a total of about $600.

Why would you pay $600 for a monitor that comes takes months and months to ship when you could order the better quality Qnix QX2710 from eBay for $300 and comes to your door in 4 days for free? Not to mention the fact that my Overlord didn't even overclock to 120Hz (only got to 110Hz), but my Qnix did straight out of the box.

Also, OP, don't waste your money on the Auria, it's a waste of money as well.

Either buy a Asus VG248QE 144Hz monitor for $260 or get the Qnix QX2710 for ~$310.

Those are the best two options.

If you don't know anything about the Qnix, check my write up below: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Here's my write up on the monitor, if anyone is curious about it.



27" 2560x1440 120Hz PLS for $317

(don't use the below links unless you want Pixel Perfect, use the OP's link if you want the cheapest)

How you may ask? Qnix QX2710 or Qnix QX2710 Pixel Perfect

It's a PLS panel (which is just Samsung's version of IPS), though the pixels are different from IPS monitors. Some think PLS has better colors than IPS.

From what I've seen most people easily hit 110Hz, if not 120Hz, as long as you don't have a garbage graphics card.

The bezel is of reasonable size, too bad it's glossy though, I'll be painting mine matte black. Also the anti-glare coating on the monitor is quite light and doesn't degrade the picture quality. Sooo much better than glossy if you ask me, and many others will agree.

Mine came with 1 dead pixel and 1 stuck pixel (likely the stuck pixel can be fixed), I ain't even mad though...the pixels are so god damn small it's quite hard to notice it. I don't have any backlight bleed on mine, some people have experienced bleed, but there is an easy fix.

The downside of the monitor is that the casing is cheap, which ain't that big of a deal to me. Although it is kind of annoying that you have to remove the back panel to take off the stem of the mount (if you want to put this monitor on a monitor stand with arms).

All in all, I'm really happy with mine. Definitely recommend it if you're in the market for basically the best bang for the buck/performance monitor you can buy right now. Also, the shipping from South Korea is so stupidly fast...48 hours, how is that possible? If you're worried about a warranty or it dying you can get a warranty from Square Trade for $50 for 3 year coverage.

Feel free to read user's opinions in the huge Overclock.net threads:
- Original Thread
- Overclock Results
- Monitor Club w/ Optimization Guides

TL;DR

Pros:
-27"
-1440p
-overclockable to 120Hz (note that nVidia GPUs are more successful for higher OCs than AMD cards)
-amazing colors
-cheap

Cons:
-cheap casing
-possible backlight bleed (though you can fix on your own)
-possible dead/stuck pixels, maximum of 2 (if you use HuluStar)
-cheap monitor stand

Worth it.

It works fine. I'm using my BENQ XL2411T in Windows 8. I also own an ASUS VG278H.

Also, do not forget to test LightBoost, for the "WOW" effect during FPS gaming.
(You do, however, need 120fps@120Hz for the "WOW" effect, otherwise LightBoost is worthless at 60fps)

Then yesterday I, for some reason, disabled the 3d and noticed [with LightBoost] there was no ghosting to be spotted at all in titan quest.
It's like playing on my old CRT.

I can confirm this works on BENQ XL2420TX
EDIT: And OMG i can play scout so much better now in TF2, this is borderline cheating.

Thanks for this, it [LightBoost] really works! Just tried it on my VG278H. Its like a CRT now!

Oh my, I just got Skyrim AFK camera spinning (which I used to test LCD's versus the [Sony CRT] FW900) to run without stutters and VSYNC locked to 120. This Benq with Lightboost is just as crystal clear if not clearer than the FW900 motion. I am in awe. More testing tomorrow. Any of my doubts about this Lightboost technology have been vaporized! I've been playing around with this fluid motion on this monitor for like 6-hours straight, that is how impressive it is.
I'd also recommend trying the XL2720T, which is newer and has better LightBoost, and manages to achieve almost 1000:1 contrast ratio in LightBoost mode with the newest drivers. Less color quality compromises.
