Check it out the reviews below...


If you're not using 3D Vision, there are better monitors out there to buy wink.gif

BTW...I recommend you Google for site reviews before buying something & that's my 2cents.gif ... biggrin.gif

Oh, yeah that monitor has lightboost hack. I have a benq xl2420t and I LOVE IT. I was being snarky earlier, but I'm adding my two cents. I'd like to have that monitor.

Oh well, you don't have an nvidia gpu but still, it's a decent 3d monitor.

I am looking for a 120hz monitor for gaming. My budget is around 250. Which one would you guys recommend?

The BenQ XL2420T received a nice review score... Check it out the review... http://pcmonitors.info/reviews/benq-xl2420t

Now compare the review to the ASUS VG248QE (see post #4) then make your choice. If price does not matter, the BenQ thinking.gifbut you can always save more cash to buy it thumb.gif

Between the 2, I would spend the lesser cash for the ASUS VG248QE but that's me smile.gif

Just bought the ASUS and I love it, especially using the LightBoost hack. Everything is crisp and smooth as butter. The common knock against BenQ is your sacrificing a lot in terms of color scale. With this monitor the colors are still vibrant and the brightness is more than adequate.

We have a massive thread about this monitor already

http://www.overclock.net/t/1331478/new-asus-vg248qe-144hz-1ms-tn-1080p

Seriously, who buys a monitor and then checks to see if it is good after...and the thread was in the first page of the monitor forum...
