5 out of 5 eggsStellar gaming monitor

Pros: Best value I've seen in the field of 144hz gaming monitors. This product is usually compared to ASUS's VG248QE--I've heard both those and the 2411Z's use the same panel, but the 2411Z has a matte finish as opposed to the ASUS's glossy (and more reflective) finish. BenQ also offers more versatile firmware that lets you change more with the monitor, and it's in this firmware where the monitor really shines.

Some reviews of this monitor decry its awful out of the box colors--the packaging of the monitor even states that its default settings are not for everyone and can be extensively altered. I'm not sure why BenQ has chosen such awful default settings, but if you look around online you can find some wonderful profiles that only take a few minutes to set up. And once you do, this monitor truly shines. Its colors are almost on par with an IPS panels while offering far better response time and refresh rate.

Cons: Mine shipped with a green stuck pixel. Only one and it doesn't bother me, so I'm not going to dock an Egg.

Other Thoughts: I haven't used this monitor for NVIDIA 3D Vision and I honestly couldn't care less about the feature. I bought this monitor to play Counter Strike and gaming on 144 hz is honestly worlds different than gaming on 60 hz. Check out the Blurbusters BenQ blur reduction utility

5 out of 5 eggsGreat FPS monitor

Pros: Very good picture ( for being TN ), very nice build quality, easy set up, 144hz! Best for FPS games.

Cons: Some what faded color production, no display port. I run this monitor next to my IPS monitor and you can definitely tell the difference between color quality.

Other Thoughts: This is a great monitor if you consider yourself a FPS gamer. I went from a IPS 60hz with a 7ms response time which kept causing motions sickness to this awesome monitor, I can say that I can play RPG and FPS games for hours on end and not once have had any motion sickness feeling.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome monitor

Pros: The monitor is tailored for performance and my experience with gaming has been unparalleled.

The menu functionality is great and very easy to use.
I'm more of a simple kind of guy, but the software that BenQ provides seems rather handy.

A lot of options, and the stand and swivel are quality.

Cons: The colors although are kind of bland, and you can never seem to just get them right.

Other Thoughts: I knew beforehand that the colors for this monitor were sub-par. I do not use the software BenQ provides, instead I tweaked the color settings with Nvidia's control panel and I use sRGB mode...not the all-time greatest, but I'm definitely satisfied. Will recommend.

3 out of 5 eggsGood for games, does not do videos

Pros: 144hz, upgraded from 60hz and just wow, so much smoothness

You can really notice the difference in a game like CS:GO

Cons: Like i said its good for gaming but whenever i try to play a video, (youtube or VLC) the whole monitor just goes to grey noise and i have to somehow close my browser or whatever app is playing the video blindly to make it stop or restart my computer

weirdest issue ever. It only happens when its the only monitor enabled, i have dual monitors when im not gaming to maximize my FPS since my video card is older, if i have dual monitors running it can play videos just fine.

I'm taking two eggs off for this until i can find a fix, i've messed with the settings and tried google, found two others with the same problem but no fixes. i'm sure the fix is out there but i haven't looked too hard yet as its not a huge issue since i have another monitor.

Other Thoughts: Wish the 27'' wasn't 400 dollars more:) 24 is good though

4 out of 5 eggsTakes More Than a Little Configuration

Pros: A good price for a 144 Hz monitor, although out of the box you might be disappointed in it and think you made a terrible mistake, after a bit of fiddling with the settings and various other configuration tools (Blur Busters is your friend) you can get the colors to be pretty accurate, with less noticeable grey-blacks than other TNs I've used. The inclusion of the v2 firmware makes all that much easier, and the ability to save profiles means I could test adjustments and easily fall back to previous settings if they messed things up.

Cons: Yes, it is not IPS, but after some messing with really all you miss out on is the viewing angle, the additional refresh rate makes up for that to me, it's a judgement call. This, however, is NOT the monitor for someone who wants something that just works... It takes some doing to get right. The stand also adds to its size needlessly so, and moves it somewhat uncomfortably forward on my desk.

Other Thoughts: Haven't bothered with 3D, probably won't, it's kinda not my thing.

4 out of 5 eggsAffordable gaming monitor

Pros: Cheaper than other alternatives.
Monitor menu is easy to navigate and use
144Hz
Matte
Solid and adjustable stand.

Cons: The monitor screen is wobbly when there is any little tension or force.
The colors are horrible. Even when calibrated, they are horrible. Although this is a gaming monitor so great color is not priority.
There is still a little visible ghosting.

Other Thoughts: It's the affordable alternative but there are better options out there in terms of the least amount of ghosting.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: * 144hz refresh rate makes for smooth gameplay in video games. Helps reduce screen tearing greatly!

* 1ms response time gives an advantage in competitive gaming.

* Matte bezel instead of glossy.

* One of the most competent OSDs I've ever used. Easy to navigate!

* Adjustable height on the monitor.

* Ability to turn off the logo most companies find necessary to include for power-on.

Cons: * Colors could be better.

* The "Blur Reduction" feature makes the monitor too dark.

Other Thoughts: A fine gaming monitor. If you're into competitive FPSs or just love the high end equipment you can buy for gaming, get this monitor.

The default color calibration is absolutely terrible, but with the proper tweaking you'll have the display looking nice. The colors aren't the best I've seen on a monitor, but they're certainly not the worst. Being a TN panel, it's understandable.

As stated, the "Blur Reduction" feature make the panel too dark to use for gaming. You can try cranking the brightness up, but it did not help me in the slightest. There is a website called BlurBusters that has a BenQ approved application that is supposed to help you tune the feature, but it said my monitor did not meet the proper prerequisites. One of those having to do with your monitor coming equipped with the version 2 of the firmware. I checked the Service Menu on the monitor and it reported having version 2, so I don't know what the problem is.

Also, and this might just be me, but the Blur Reduction feature didn't seem to do it's job anyway. I didn't notice a decrease in the motion blur.

All in all, it's a fantastic monitor for gaming. The 144hz with the 1ms response time is simply amazing for gaming, and you just can't beat it, nor go back to 60hz.

3 out of 5 eggsFirst Impressions

Pros: Fast and smooth, as advertised. Decent design, decent selection of on board features. Easy to set up. No Dead Pixels(yay!)
The 144 does seem to make a difference, which is nice, and I experienced very quirks that I was getting before.

Cons: The default calibration is TRASH. It will shock when you first turn it on. It's waaaaaaaaaaay off. Very bright and washed out and initially a bit tedious to get adjusted right. The cable holder on back of the stand is pretty flimsy, but that's a minor gripe.

Other Thoughts: I found that a combination of on board adjustments, and calibration through Windows 7 own available tools was the "magic" combo I needed. The ICC profiles I found made little to no difference to what I had already adjusted myself, however the windows adjustments made a very noticeable difference and got my colors and picture to an overall much more acceptable state. The issue I take with this(and why I deduct eggs) is that there is virtually no documentation in the monitor going over any of this....and that seems like a pretty big oversight to me. Also, the default state could(and should) be much better than it is. Seriously, it's shocking the first time you turn it on, and I could have done without the scare.
Also, they ship this is the manufacturer's box and UPS proceeds to just leave it on the front porch where anyone can walk up and take it. I'm not sure this is the best way to handle shipping expensive computer parts. Overall I like it so far though.

5 out of 5 eggsWhat an upgrade

Pros: 144hz and 1ms, for me the two most important specs of a gaming monitor is refresh rate and response time. Going from a 60hz to this was night and day difference. Game play is silky smooth and shipped with firmware v2.0!

Cons: colors aren't as good as a high end ips but colors are still very good for a monitor of this design, especially when compared to monitors of the same design.

Other Thoughts: if your looking for a monitor of this style at this size I highly suggest this model
