You can't compare these two monitors.
The feature specification and thus the target user group is completely different.
It's like trying to compare if a freesync monitor is better than a Gsync one.

XL2720Z's main selling point is its blur reduction capability. It's the only monitor besides a CRT (the others in the same family, e.g. XL2420Z, XL2430T have the same capability) that can single strobe the backlight at all refresh rates between 60-144hz and will have the lowest amount of strobing crosstalk, besides Lightboost mode montors, and CRT's (which have none). The XL2720Z also has absolutely HORRIBLE default overdrive settings if blur reduction is disabled, but a undocumented firmware bug and toggle can change this from terrible to excellent (unfortunately no one except people who have read my posts knows about the bug or how to fix it). As long as you know how to work around the firmware bugs and exploit them, the XL2720Z is probably one of the best gaming monitors that does not support freesync or gsync, due to the powerful blur reduction capability. But freesync and gsync are more important to most people AND this is also a 27" 1080p monitor, which turns *many* people off. Yes, the 1440p XL2730Z exists, but it has far reliability problems and a far WORSE blur reduction capability (limited only to 120hz and 144hz refresh rates and VT tweaks do not work at all on it).

I know nothing about the XG 2701.

I can link the article if blurbusters forums goes back up. It's been down for a couple of days. Everything I wrote is there. I'm not going to talk anyone step by step through it, though. Keep in mind I found most of these things by myself and If I can do that, others should understand things that are carefully explained in a post.
