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

I didn't say me owning one changed the outcome, I said I didn't notice it over a week of usage.

Coming from a 60Hz display, there's a clear difference between it and this display in Lightboost. The XL2720T may not be the best Lightboost display out there when speaking purely in terms of motion clarity but the motion clarity IS better than any other non-Lightboost display at 27".

In other words, for some of us, a single 24" display is not big enough, or 3 x 24" displays is simply not an option. The next best is this 27" display, which doesn't have the best Lightboost performance of all Lightboost displays across all screen sizes, but still has (much) better motion clarity than a non-Lightboost display.

Yes, this is true. I wasn't trying to say anything to the contrary. But it is a pretty pricey display for mediocre Lightboost performance. Overall I did like the build quality, stand etc though. Unfortunately there are many reports of pixel issues with this panel on [H], my customers monitor that I tested had a stuck red pixel right in the central viewing area. redface.gif

All this stuff is GREAT TO KNOW.

But, what some of us need is these questions answered:

What is the best Light Boost monitor out there right now?

Is there a better 27 inch over other 27 inchers---Benq vs Asus?

Is 24 inch Asus better than the 24 inch Benq?


Does anyone have a price for the ASUS VG278HR?


Thanks guys.

Here is a customer review that is worth reading...again, not good for the XL2720T.

Did you manually calibrated the colors or did you used an hardware calibrator? I'm trying to set up but can't manage to find a really satisfying result rolleyes.gif

Vega's just being picky. He's very sensitive to the LCD artifacts, so he needs the very best LightBoost monitors.

Nitpicking aside, the XL2720T LightBoost is still superior to most non-LightBoost monitors in motion quality, and not everyone is sensitive enough to notice the difference between LB10% and LB100% -- the mere existence of LightBoost is sufficient enough and the trailing artifacts is not noticeable... That said, I am starting to wonder how VG278H (not HE) holds up against XL2720T, because the VG278H might even be superior to the XL2720T in terms of the checkerboard pixel artifact -- I'm very interested in hearing feedback about this.

Have to full quote that, sorry. But am really interested in the same.

Just to let everyone who's interested know I'll be reviewing this monitor very shortly. As I have done with the ASUS VG248QE I'll provide some recommended settings and some ICC profiles. I won't be testing LightBoost too extensively - just testing to see that it works and raising awareness for those outside these parts who may not know it exists. thumb.gif
