BenQ XL2720Z
April 16, 2014
Once again, BenQ has a winner on its hands with the new XL2720Z ($529) gaming monitor. Like its predecessor, the BenQ XL2720T, the XL2720Z lets you take your game to new levels, with a fast pixel response and dedicated first-person shooter (FPS) modes. This time around, BenQ has upped the ante by adding a motion-blur reduction feature, a 144Hz refresh rate, and ZeroFlicker technology. Color accuracy and gray-scale performance are good, but not great, and there's noticeable color shift when viewed from an angle, but you get an excellent selection of I/O ports and a stand with multiple ergonomic adjustments. If you're into fast-paced gaming and want a monitor that can keep up with the action, the XL2720Z is as good as it gets and is our Editors' Choice for big-screen gaming monitors.
