FAST 120hz monitor, needs some color tweaking

Pros: I messed with my settings a lot when I first got the monitor and was pretty disappointed in the colors. I finally fixed the issue and the monitor looks great.

There are two things I did to fix it. First, I found out that this monitor really struggles at low brightness. Set brightness at 85+. Secondly, go into your Nvidia Control Panel and set digital vibrance to 63% (default = 50%) and gamma to 1.20 (default = 1.00).

Next, calibrate your settings as shown below. This worked great for me, i'm very happy with my purchase. The monitor is extremely fast, BF3 is much smoother, and there is no input lag, no noticeable ghosting, and no glossy glare.

The stand is completely adjustable and easy to assemble. The monitor menu is easy to use. Loving this monitor.

Cons: The out-of-the-box colors aren't great and it will take some adjusting to get it right. My only complaint is how bright this monitor has to be in order for the colors to be accurate.

Other Thoughts: ::Monitor Settings::
Brightness 80 to 90
Contrast 50
Sharpness 5
Gamma 4
Color Temp ---> user mode 98R 98G 100B

::Nvidia Control Panel's Color Settings::
Set Digital Vibrance = 63% (default = 50%)
Set Gamma = 1.25

Still loving it

Pros: Been using this monitor for years and it's still great. Very easy to set up and 120hz is pleasant for the eyes and games.

Cons: None to date.

Other Thoughts: The remote wheel controller that operates the monitor menu is meh. I stopped using it to make space for my other desk junk.

BenQ XL2420T

Pros: Best 1920x1080 / 3D monitor in the world imo Ben Q makes great stuff!!!!

Cons: - Gaming is going more towards 3K res and 1920x1080 is last gen stuff... so if your PC can handle 3K gaming i would recommend a 3K monitor but if not this is the one to get.

- Also i wish i had gotten a 30" + monitor... at the time 24" seemed fine... and it really is.... but my next monitor will be a 30"+ 3K monitor...

Best 1080p monitor I've ever used

Pros: -The 120hz desktop experience is brilliant
-Colors look great for a TN panel. Contrast is great.
-Build quality is among the best I've seen in a monitor
-The adjustable base is useful and great
-No defects after 3 years


I've been immensely satisfied with this monitor. I'm not looking for a higher-end panel with a comparable refresh rate, higher resolution (1440p) and IPS panel type, and I've found what I'm looking for. That said, when I purchase the new screen I definitely plan on keeping this one as a peripheral. Being able to swivel it will allow me to extend the longetivity of this monitor in my house because I'll use it for coding or something.

Cons: That magnetic little controller you can slap on the side to change presets is annoying. I don't use it.

The menu is a little awkward to navigate at times. I have a 3-monitor setup and I've noticed that the bezels from side monitors will sometimes highlight the touch screen buttons on this. Not a big deal at all, but occasionally I'll have to re-position a monitor to resolve this.

These issues are so small and infrequent I honestly can't complain.

Other Thoughts: I've been using this for 3 years and plan on using it for years to come. Best monitor I've used thus far.

Awesome Monitor

Pros: All around, great. I've been using this monitor for gaming and work, and it fits the bill for both. Colors are a little bright but can be easily adjusted with the touch button menu system. Once you get the hang of the menus it becomes quick and simple to navigate and adjust as you see fit.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Got this on sale for $279.99. Best three hundred bucks I've ever spent.

Amazing

Pros: The monitor is incredibly bright and vibrant. 120Hz is amazing needless to say. It makes such a huge difference in gaming. If you're a gamer(any kinds of games), you should be playing it on this monitor.

Cons: The buttons on the monitor(settings, power, etc) seems to be touch sensitive and sometimes doesn't respond. Nothing terrible, just needed to write some kind of con =)
