    BenQ, a world-leading human technology and solutions provider and professional gaming monitor pioneer, unveiled today the XL2720Z, its exciting new 27" professional gaming monitor designed and built with all the BenQ's exclusive visual clarity enhancement innovations for FPS action-oriented gaming, from Gaming Refresh Rate Optimization Management (GROM) and Flicker-free Technology to the latest additions: Motion Blur Reduction technology and Low Blue Light technology. Once again testifying to its unyielding belief of "Gaming Is in the Detail", BenQ is the first to bring the critical factors for gaming triumph - striking visual clarity, seamless fluidity and great gaming comfort - to hardcore gamers and gaming enthusiasts around the world.

    "The new XL2720Z and the industry-leading features that it comes with is a true and proud manifesto of our vision of professional gaming at its best and of our actions taken to realize that vision," said Peter Chen, General Manager of BenQ's Technology Product Center. "Motion Blur Reduction may yet to be a new concept to the gaming world, but no doubt it is the best-to-date perfection of LCD displays in gaming action. Gamers will find the clear difference we aim to deliver in game play clarity and fluidity once they get their hands on the XL2720Z."

    The XL2720Z is the world's first professional gaming monitor to adopt Motion Blur Reduction, BenQ's latest technological innovation uniquely designed with the consideration of the resolution, response time and refresh rate of a monitor and how the three most crucial elements in determining a gamer's performance work together to achieve an ultra-smooth, blur-free gaming experience. For a long time, gamers have been reluctant to switch from CRT screens to regular LCD displays, being concerned with the delay in refresh rate, or the change of pixel colors from scene to scene, which for fast-paced FPS games would mean the difference between victory and defeat. With this technology, gamers would have the reaction time advantage they seek to make the perfect kill and compete or practice comfortably and confidently with improved vision quality. Motion Blur Reduction works to support a range of resolutions and refresh rates to provide cleaner, sharper video quality on the display.

    The new Low Blue Light technology, also introduced with the XL2720Z, is incorporated to provide gamers with top-notch vision condition that allows them to practice long hours or compete fiercely with clear, comfortable vision. The technology successfully manages the harmful blue spectrum light emitted from regular computer screens through an offering of various adjustable low blue light levels to help gamers better protect their eyes, as prolonged viewing may lead to eyestrain, eye damage and headaches. Game play can be clear and comfortable.

    The XL2720Z, like the award-winning XL2420T and XL2411T, offers gamers the freedom to custom-build their personal gaming computers with GROM, a management system that collaborates with the Display Mode and Smart Scaling feature to enable customization of viewing preferences, from refresh rates (100/120/144 Hz), display resolutions to screen sizes. A highly personalized FPS gaming experience, more so than anything else, empowers gamers with an accurate sense of control, accuracy and ease.

    Another mention-worthy feature would be the Gaming-Comfort Flicker-free technology designed to eliminate backlight flickering at all brightness levels, ensuring the eye comfort of a professional gamer that spends on an average of 8 to 12 hours a day to sharpen their gaming skills.

    The XL2720Z will be available worldwide in November 2013.

    Dear Monitor Manufacturers,

    If you want gamers to buy your 'gaming monitor' then please stop making f*****g 1080P 16:9 monitors!!!!

    Yours Sincerely,

    The entire world.

    GSYNC should become a standard implementation over both DVI and DP. Expanding the EDID specs and adding software support for GSYNC in drivers is a breeze.

    TN is a no-no for me. simply put, 6 bit TN displays are a P.O.S to look at compared to what IPS and VA panels offer.

    I use 16:10 myself, is it really preferred for gaming over 16:9?

    If you buy anything now, will be a waste of money because soon the G-SYNC tech from nvidia will be on all Gaming Dedicated monitors such this.


    I want to see what is capable G-SYNC before buy a bigger monitor or new one.

    Probably when the entire world is running highend $600+ graphics cards, the monitor manufacturers will do it. No point buying a 1440p/1600p if you have a $150 graphics card that gives you 25fps.

    That's what a lot of you guys don't realize, I've been reading these kind of comments for years. The vast majority of gamers and computer owners are low-mid range. If people were buying all the high res monitors they would make more. Monitor manufacturers know the business better than most of us.

    I want better monitors too but there is no money in it for them. In your daily travels , how many times do you see high-res monitors, In businesses, stores, schools etc. Not very often. They are usually ultraCrap monitors.

    Even steam hardware survey for gamers, a very small minority run high-res monitors.

    It all comes down to the fact that there are many billions of 1080p monitors, and another piece of crap that's getting thrown on the pile is not news-worthy at all. I'm not complaining about the existence of them, but who in the fuck wants to buy a new monitor that covers 96% of some colorspace when the $200 one they got last month covers 95% of it? The only thing that's even remotely not like every other 1080p monitor on the fucking market is that it can do 144hz, just like every other 1080p GAMING monitor.

    But don't let me argue that this "you need a $600 graphics card to run a 1440p monitor, but you can run this 1080p monitor at 144 fps with whatever GT 320 you've got laying around" argument is a steaming pile of shit, because I'd be too busy telling you that this monitor is probably more news-worthy than 80% of the monitors that this crap-hole spits at you.

    I get rageboners for certain things like I get boners for certain women, it's not so much an addiction as the news section is a dense, endless parade of smoking hot chicks arguing that nobody wants to see anything other than 1080p monitors.
