5 out of 5 eggsBenQ XL Series XL2420TE

Pros: Pretty awesome if I do say so myself.

Running it with a GTX 690, and everything is smooth.

Cons: None really.

Color quality is less than my other 2 monitors ( Asus VE248 ), but you're not buying this for the picture, but for the performance.

Other Thoughts: None

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Monitor!

Pros: Going from a 60Hz to a 144Hz monitor is unbelievable. Games are very smooth if you can get high enough fps. If you are an avid gamer you WILL see a difference. This was a great purchase.

Cons: The picture quality is noticeably less than that of, for example, a TV of the same size. There seems to be less color depth with this monitor.

Other Thoughts: Although the picture quality is a bit low, this display makes up for it with it's 144Hz display mode! Definityl not something you should be using for HD movies or professional photo editing, but for gaming, its well worth the price tag! Another thing to consider is that in order to harness it's full potential, you need to be getting 144+ FPS in games. Use "Fraps FPS counter" (free program) to measure your FPS in games before you purchase this monitor. Also consider that you will notice a difference between 60Hz and 144Hz, but 120Hz to 144Hz may not be as noticeable.

5 out of 5 eggsCRT is obselete!!!

Pros: Beautiful colors (for a TN Panel)
LED Backlight is Bright.
It really does 144Hz!!!
Worth Every Penny!

Cons: Takes a while to switch screen modes and come out of standby. (about 5 secs on DVI-D). Off the base, Screen seems kind of flimsy and 'squeaky'. They should have included a proper cleaning cloth instead of a PVC cover that sits folded up in the closet.

Other Thoughts: The base is heavier than the monitor. Ok if you dont go 'gorilla' on it. Really does what it's supposed to. Was going to dock an egg for the long wake-up time, but I have only tried DVI. The issue could be resolved by future firmware updates. Little remote thingy is useful, but somewhat redundant.
Really is as smooth as a crt at > 100Hz.

5 out of 5 eggsVery Nice, BenQ XL Series XL2420TE

Pros: Nicely built and packaged, great adjustability and once color is adjusted decent colors.
This is a nice monitor...best I have ever had.
I would buy another one!

Cons: I have not been satisfied with the 120-133hz. I have a I2600k and EVGA GTX780TI SC ACX (16GB Ram) and while it runs fine at a 120hz I still see little improvement from my standard 60Hz monitor. Probably not the monitors fault...maybe I need to reinstall my drivers or my Fios is the problem? Being I do not think it's the monitors fault I still will give it 5 stars.

Also, the buttons for changing the presets on the base are blocked by the fact my keyboard is in the way. I do not know how you could make it better though.

3 out of 5 eggsNot worth it

Pros: It is a big display, not something I was expecting but nice none the less. High refresh rate no taring. Sold build quality, and very configurable.

Cons: Poor color accuracy. I know this is true for most high refresh rate monitors but I expected better. 144hz is not as great as i expected. yes it looks better with more than 60 fps, but that luxury is not really worth the money. Also, it is hard for me to even hit higher than 60 fps with my GTX 680, though that of course will vary from person to person.

Other Thoughts: High refresh rate monitors are not ready.

4 out of 5 eggsBenQ XL Series XL2420TE Black-Red 24 Review

Pros: The refresh rate, along with cards to back it up make it undoubtedly easier to aim and track targets.
The red hook at the rear of the monitor was a nice touch so you can hand your headphones when not in use.

Cons: Unfortunately it does not come with G-Sync pre-installed.
Wish the colors were a bit more true but that's just a tn panel for you.

5 out of 5 eggsgreat Monitor

Pros: Best monitor I've had. 144 Hz is amazing, colors look good. Its easily adjustable in any direction. Headphone rack, display port, side usb ports.

Cons: its not 4k

Other Thoughts: Ive owned 4 different monitors since 2009, this being the fifth. Ive had an LG and three Asus monitors. They were all good and worked as advertised but this monitor is above and beyond a "monitor". Its a "boutique" gaming monitor. Would buy again except the next time I would consider a 27 inch. Its really nice.

5 out of 5 eggsAMAZING!

Pros: Everything!
Let me start off by saying I have three of these hooked up and play Battlefield 4 on them. From the multiple inputs to the ease of setup these things are just awesome.

I used the usb port on the back side to chain all three together so each side USB ports are active, used Display port and DVI for the 144hz and currently using hdmi (60hz) for the third until i get another graphics card to bring all three to 144hz. The performance of these monitors are next to nothing.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: If i had to say anything negative about these it would be in agreement with some that say these are horrible for photo editing. I have only seen one picture where it looked all weird and what not, but honestly, these are GAMING monitors. (says so if you would simply read) so from the gaming aspect could not get any better

5 out of 5 eggsBenQ XL2420TE Black-Red 24" 1ms

Pros: - Easy to setup
- Vibrant colors with the right calibration
- No dead pixels on arrival
- Great for gaming (even non FPS)
- Has a headphone stand on the back for convenience

Cons: - Default settings are too bright and can cause headaches
- Took about an hour to get things calibrated
- Had to use outside resources for recommended settings

Other Thoughts: I came from using a Macbook Pro with retina display and the colors are already amazing on that. Although the Benq's colors aren't as vibrant as the Macbook, with the right calibration, you can still get something similar. I was hesitant to get this because of others complaints of the washed out colors, but the reason for the washed out look is because of the initial settings, which is setup for FPS gaming. After a few minor adjustments I was able to have separate settings for desktop use and gaming use. The Benq comes with a switch that saves 3 settings so you don't need to calibrate it every single time you change formats.
