Some guy from ESReality said that he has exactly the same defects with his BenQ.
We need to find out more info on BenQ's, because if this is kinda "normal" for BenQ's then I think we even cannot call it a monitor
It's a desk with backlight, not a monitor

What about image quality? Do you noticed any problems with your 2411z or not?
I got moneyback for BenQ and bought PHILIPS... Now I think I'll do a moneyback for PHILIPS and... don't know what to do next(I think guys in that shop will hate me if I'll do some more moneybacks XD, but wait.. I dont't want to pay for $|-|1T).
Because all cons of PHILIPS is really a reason to do that.
I know one thing now YOU CANT TRUST TO ANY KIND OF REVIEWS
, because they are likely LYING that telling truth, and also you don't need to be an expert to test your monitor. You need just 2 eyes and "ScreenTest.zip" (Ill upload it later, just .png images with grayscales, test pics).
144Hz is like drugs and now I can't play games without it
Neeeeed a good 144Hz monitoooor...
About ghosting on PHILIPS, YES it's here. Really noticeable, like on BenQ w/o blur reduction. I will test PHILIPS today, set up software and look for some settings, maybe there are some settings for blur reduction.
Also PHILIPS has 2ms input lag? But I don't think it's matters, because BenQ has up to 5ms, depends on your blur reduction settings. 1ms is unuseable, too dark.
Maybe ASUS is better? AOC(as far as I know it's has the same matrix as PHILIPS, and no blur reduciton)?Well.. we need BenQs build quality and PHILIPS matrix + blur reduciton to have a decend monitor
XL2411T(previous revision of the same model) http://www.digitalversus.com/lcd-monitor/benq-xl2411t-p15802/test.html
THEY ARE THE SAME. For some reason 2411Z has 2/5 color quality, and has a big chance of getting artifacts like this dark patterns/dark spots.ALSO ON 144Hz Monitors
To choose the good one is really difficult.
Many of them doesn't have any kind of blur reduction, some of them have high input lag, others have really bad build quality and bad image quality (colors/contrast).OVERALL CONS(pros) OF ALL ~200-380eur 144Hz monitors
ASUS - blur reduction doesn't work with 144Hz (only with 120Hz).
PHILIPS - really bad build quality, bad response time, ghosting. no blur reduction.
BenQ - overall one of the best brands but.. there are fails like 2411Z
. BenQ might be the winner in:
-Blur reduction (works on 144Hz)
The only bad thing may be contrast ratio (less than 800:1) and color accuracy (at the moment there are only one really bad model - 2411Z
others are fine and like at least 4/5).
Good monitors are: 2411T, 2420G, 2430T, 2720Z (really awesome), (and maybe 2730Z is good+).
Iiyama - averagely ~3/5 colors/contrast quality. Some models are good. Build quality like 3-3.5/5. Has a blur reduction called overdrive.
AOC - well, most models has bad colors/contrast. And no blur reducton.SO, OVERALL:
Try BenQ 2411T, 2420G
, 2430T, 2720Z
. Don't know about other models, but these must be good.

We need to find out which panels are in concrete models. Because there may be some lying from monitor producing brands.
Only thing I've found is http://www.tftcentral.co.uk/panelsearch.htm
But it has no concrete data on some monitors:
2411Z: 1ms G2G + 144Hz [24"WS AU Optronics TN Film (M240HW01 V8
Other data are not full:
2420G: 1ms G2G + 144Hz [24"WS TN Film] BUT WHICH EXACTLY?
2430T: 1ms G2G + 144Hz [24"WS AU Optronics TN Film] BUT WHICH EXACTLY?
2411T: 1ms G2G + 120Hz [24"WS TN Film] BUT WHICH EXACTLY?
BY THE WAY:
Asus VG248QE 1ms G2G + 144Hz [24"WS AU Optronics TN Film (M240HW01 V8)
]USING THE SAME PANEL AS 2411Z
I'll need to find out MORE AND MORE...
This is REALLY A CONSPIRACY! Selling the same crap under different price tags and categories (from cheap-mid to premium-top).
