What are the custom settings that you use? What works best for gameplay @ 144hz?
post #3 of 8
Monitor double strobes at refresh rates lower than 100hz. Can someone please contact Benq and ask them to include a single strobe override switch to enforce single strobing at 60hz-85hz? 100hz strobe was fixed in this monitor, while it did not work on the XL2730Z.

Vertical Total tweaks up to VT 1825 work to reduce the strobe crosstalk by a large amount, by making the blanking interval 25% larger.
This doesn't work at 144 hz. (max VT = 1562 (?).

I find it working extremely well in fast-paced fps, which is why I bought this one.
Playing on 1440P @ 144hz feels really smooth, overall it feels much better than the old VG248QE I had.
I play old-school shooters so no problems with the steady fps there.

When running on default factory settings the picture feels too bright and somehow washed out when surfing or watching videos.
Not sure what settings to try since I lack any knowledge for this.

I don't get how they're charging $700 for these monitors. Am I missing something justifies the high price tag? No G-Sync, no FreeSync, and just basic 144hz. It's just a 27" 1440p TN panel. Maybe strict QC? DyAc?

Factory default settings on all of the Benq monitors are garbage.

It's a bit steep price-tag but I had some money lying around from the swift pg279q I bought in the summer and had no use for it whatsoever.
It was way worse than the VG248QE I had (when it came to ghosting and overall in-game smoothness) so I sold the swift and used the money for the xl2735.

Regardless of the price tag I find this monitor to perform really well in fps-games and I think it has to do with the DyAc, which obviously makes difference if you can sustain proper fps.
As far as I got it, and that's why I bought it, If you can keep steady 144hz this one is better than the xl2730 which comes with freesync.

I am curious as to what other owners experience but I guess it takes time for this one to reach more customers given the price and availability...

Judging from the reviews the new panel used is actually a downgrade from XL2730. sRGB color space dropped from 100% to 90%, and reviews stating that it barely goes to 2.0 gamma with Gamma 5 setting.
