Considering dreamhack is over (as far as i know) and no more information has been revealed about this monitor, from their twitter or on their homepage. Are there any of you guys that have heard more about this monitor?? Im crossing my fingers for a IPS panel.

Sounds like a strobing monitor with all the reference to CRT still being better and"Today we are proud to announce the new XL2735 with smoother gameplay experience that can’t be found on other monitors in the same class." as good strobing isn't a feature on any of the current 1440p 27". Could also just be a strobing 240hz 1080p 27" as AUO are bringing panels out on that.

Certainly looks like a tn, like a bad tn even, lol. But they could have had fps mode on or something or camera being at an angle ect..

"On the stand Zowie at DreamHack Summer 2016 is also used for completely new monitors - XL2735. 27-inch device is not went yet to sell, and already gaining further fans. Monitor offers a response time of 1 ms at a frequency of 144 Hz refresh rate. The fact that it has already offered many other gaming - and not only - monitors, but this one stands out from the background. We checked on your own skin.

Side by side erected two monitors - one brand BenQ, which appeared on the market about a year ago and the second - Zowie XL2735. Two people began with a comparable speed to move the mouse on the same map in CS: GO. For older model image definitely blurring, ghosting was particularly noticeable in the faster movements. At XL2735 anything like it was - the picture was very fluid. How was this achieved? Thanks to technology, Dynamic Accuracy, which has developed what is called."

thanks! Finally some pictures of this Monitor and with 1ms being mentioned it is indeed going to be a tn paneler - sigh.

Just found a comparison video, showing the "new" feature of the 2735 called "Dynamic Accuracy":

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rw_CVCyNCHk


imo what you can see in the video is complete BS. A normal 2730 doesnt have so much ghosting as seen in the video, especially at 280fps as can be seen in the video.

The example in the video looks like they completely disabled overdrive on the 2730 (AMA off) and on the XL2735Z overdrive is enabled (AMA high) and ON TOP of that, the BenQ Blur Reduction is also enabled (BBR), which in that case would literally be a completely imbecile example to start with.

What I think this "new feature" Dynamic Accuracy really is- its a slightly improved BBR (BenQ Blur Reduction) with slightly less crosstalk and Ghosting and whatnot. Its most likely really nothing to drive home about.

The XL2735Z is hardly a "real" upgrade to the 2730. It still has 144hz, so they didnt even bother to overclock the panel to 165hz, which even the DP1.2 standard actually supports, like the recent Gsync IPS 1440p monitors have it. Despite the argument if the difference is actually noticable (144->165), if its technically possible, I think they should include this for ppl to have a choice. Id gladly use 165hz over 144hz if my XL2730Z supported it without any downsides like the PG279Q which has poorly implemented 165hz, with response times beeing worse than @144hz.

Anyways, looks like BenQ is actually lacking behind Asus and Acer in terms of new gaming monitors. It still doesnt have a 144hz(165hz) IPS monitor afaik and, still no slim bezel design, nothing new in the 2735. Looks like Asus and Acer will split the gaming monitor market between them for the most part, plus a small share for AOC here and there. BenQ is basically AFKing in the last 2 years.

BenQ is a pretty good quality brand. Considering they've always invested heavily in the gaming segment, if they don't have a model analogous to the PG279Q out, it's because it either doesn't make sense financially or they don't want to deal with the QC issues.

Maybe its the case as far as 144hz IPS monitors, but still, the 2735 so far doesnt look like it justifies having a new model. The actual changes are barely existent from what I can see so far. But I will wait for actual reviews for my final impressions of it.

Again, whats disappointing is that they didnt include overclocking to 165Hz and didnt minimize the bezel, compared to Dell f. e., the BenQ does look quite bulky with its bezel. PLus the video is highly misleading imo judging by what I see on my 2730.

At least I hope theyve improved the AG coating, since I think its the biggest downside of the 2730 so far.
