BenQ XL2720T: 144hz 1920x1080 Matte Nvidia 3D Vision 2 Gaming Monitor - Page 2

The monitor stand is great. It's the right weight and it looks good. I like the red insert.

The monitor itself is fairly thin but has weight to it. My main dislike on the practicality part is that the connections for the monitor are at the bottom and facing down, as opposed to out. That can make switching connections a bit difficult. However, the stand is tall enough and rotates +/- 90 so you can set the monitor on the stand, rotate it 90 to face you and make the connections easily that way. Just a minor annoyance.

In terms of monitor performance, colors are vibrant and 120hz/1ms response time is great. The color calibration out of the box was a bit whack but it was an easy fix. There are a multitude of built-in profiles and there are plenty of settings to modify. The OSD menus are intuitively laid out and easy to operate, using the buttons on the bottom right side of the bezel. The LED that shows the monitor powered on, as well as 3D operation, have a diffuse glow and do no detract from overall use.

EDIT: Forgot to mention, there are two USB ports on the side that are a welcome addition. There's also another USB gizmo that allows you the switch between profiles on the fly but I have not used that yet. I'll edit this post again once I use it.

The fact that it's Lightboost-enabled is a huge plus and was a big factor in me buying this monitor. Check out the Lightboost thread for that.

I paid the extra money over the Asus equivalent because a) I have owned BenQ in the past and b) the luminance rating for the BenQ was higher than Asus or Acer variants with Lightboost. Very happy with my purchase.


Does the HDMI or Displayport support 3D?

Overlord Tempest has 1440p 120hz monitor-IPS panel.
Any one here seen any of these?

It does support 3D over HDMI. Not sure about DP.

Support of HDMI 3D...that is big for a monitor that does not have built in 3D emitter.

That means you could use a 3D Blu Ray player meant for HDTV.

Sorry guys, just got done testing the 2720T versus the VG248QE.

The 2720T has a very apparent double ghost image in Lightboost mode. The QE has a very slight single ghost image. Both have a ~1.4ms MPRT at 10% Lightboost, and both have a ~2.3ms MPRT at 100% Lightboost.

I also found the QE to have better image quality in Lightboost mode than the 2720T.

I cannot recommend the 2720T and I highly suspect it uses the same 2ms panel as the 27" Asus's. I'd bet a lot on it.

For the ultimate motion clarity, the only options are still the 24" 1ms panels from Asus and BenQ.

Idk where you got those "facts" , but those monitors certainly are not junky, some bezels may look like crap granted, but you are getting an Lg panel regardles.... been running one for months without any dead pixels, nor backlight bleeding...... best gaming experience so far in a 27 incher the right way , 2560 x 1440 @ 100hz" wink.gif

Sorry, but I have to disagree with you. I have XL2720T and it has better image quality. You better calibrate the monitor and nvidia.

I have never seen this double image... And that's with over a week of heavy use now.

I have compared both side by side in direct comparison in calibrated Lightboost mode. The XL2720T does not fare well, and it's Lightboost motion clarity under high speed motion tests is woeful. You owning one does not change this outcome. This is the same panel as the 2ms Asus models. BenQ didn't get a hold of some magic 1ms panels just for themselves.
