Product information

"XL2420T rev2.0 24" TRUE 144Hz 3D Vision 2.0 Widescreen LED Monitor - Black/Red /w Flicker FREE"

This revision 2.0 model is the same as the XL2420TE which is sold only in the USA, this version 2.0 is identical to that model found in the USA featuring Flicker FREE technology and 144Hz.

The XL2420T demonstrates BenQ’s true belief that "gaming is in the details" It has been co-developed with Counter-Strike pro gaming legends to bring you a gaming monitor like no other – from the attentive designs to the exceptional functions. With the precision and speed you would expect from a high-performance gaming monitor, you can now have a vantage point over your opponents in all your game play.

The task of conceptualizing the XL2420T as the ultimate gaming monitor involved a unique collaboration with prominent pro gamers: Tommy “Potti” Ingemarsson, Emil “HeatoN” Christensen, Abdisamad “SpawN” Mohamed, Michael “ahl” Korduner and Christer “fisker” Eriksson. These five names alone are synonymous when it comes to legendary Counter-Strike players. Their accumulated wealth of knowledge and skills helped BenQ develop a monitor that adapts to the needs of gamers to improve their chances of winning.

Poor visibility in dark scenes can cost even the most skillful gamers their game. The Black eQualizer color engine technology is designed to offer an unprecedented level of control and visibility. Dark scenes are brightened without over-exposing the bright areas to preserve vital details, enabling gamers to spot their enemies easily in critical combat and react quickly in any situation.

The XL2420T comes with a stylish S Switch. This distinct remote controller comes with three preset buttons so you’re able to customize and save your display settings for gaming, work or entertainment purposes. Use the scroll button on the S Switch to quickly navigate and change the OSD settings. It eliminates the tedious process of adjusting your monitor settings. Now switching seamlessly between the presets is as easy as 1-2-3.

The Display Mode and Smart Scaling features allow you to change the monitor view to suit your liking and to simulate any in-game experience. Interchange instantly between different screen sizes, from 17" (4:3), 19" (4:3), 19"W (16:9), 21.5"W (16:9), 22"W (16:10), 23"W (16:9) to 24"W (16:9), using the Display Mode. Or take advantage of the Smart Scaling feature and enjoy the flexibility to freely scale the screen content to any custom size. You can certainly use the two features together to get the best possible view for any application or game.

The preset FPS mode tailored by HeatoN and SpawN gives you the optimal brightness, contrast, sharpness and color tint in FPS games so you can spot your opponents and track their every move, even in indistinct situations. There are two variations to this special mode this year: the FPS1 mode is designed for Counter-Strike 1.6 and the FPS2 mode for Counter-Strike Source. The perfect combination of form and function provides gamers with the vantage point to always be one step ahead of the game.

With a refresh rate of 144Hz, there’s never a lag and every in-game details will be smoothly rendered. Drawing on hyper-speed video processing technology, the XL2420T gives you on-screen action and captivating realism.

Fast response time of 2ms GTG means speed without the smear for an enhanced gaming experience. Fast-moving action and dramatic transitions will be rendered smoothly without the annoying effects of smearing or ghosting. Control your gaming destiny and don’t leave it in the hands of slow display.

Great Monitor For Gaming

I've been using this for a number of days now, and my impressions are below. In summary I'd recommend this monitor for gaming, as it's a tremendous difference coming from a non-120/144hz display to this. Do make sure that your video card can hit 120fps though, otherwise you're not getting your full money's worth!

The Bad:
The monitor I had before this was a Dell U2412M, and I have to say that the colour in the XL2420T is simply bad in comparison. There's no sugar coating it really, and this is the big problem with this monitor. It's possible to mitigate the problem somewhat with settings, but ultimately if you want gorgeous colour this monitor is not for you.

Secondly, the factory default settings are atrocious. You will need to spend 10-30 minutes working out what you want from this monitor in terms of settings, as it will be determined by the ambient light in the room and your own preference. At the time of writing my settings are:

Mode: Movie
Brightness: 32
Contrast: 50
Sharpness: 5
Black Equalizer: 0
Colour Temperature: User Mode, Red 82, Green 85, Blue 85

This is as close as I've managed to get to my U2412M's colour and it's good enough. It'll limit the display to 120hz from what I've seen via the monitor's own Information display during Battlefield 4, despite being set to 144hz in-game.

The Good:
This is the best monitor I've ever gamed on, and I've gamed on a lot! It's only been a few days and I will simply not go back to 60hz. Just never. It's a whole different experience in some respects, as everything is smoother and your ability to discern movement and detail is vastly improved.
Outside of gaming, you'll also notice a smoother desktop and generally a much slicker experience overall. You'd think it'd be a minor change outside of games, but it's noticeable when you compare to a second, 60hz monitor.

The OSD menu is also quite acceptable in terms of features and navigation, although it could be better when switching between display modes given that it'll preview each one, and the (three total) saved profile slots are at the bottom of the list. Cue lots of flickering.

Finally, if you get this monitor, don't forget to set it to 120hz in the NVidia Control Panel (or Catalyst Control Center), and for the love of all that's explosive, use the XL2420T drivers that Benq have on their website.



Been locking at a new monitor for some time and decided on the benq xl2420t WOOOOW what a difference it makes playing bf4 a 144hz so smooth makes if much easer to aim highly recommended


Total Awesome

This monitor looks like HD on steroids. Its makes your games silky smooth at 144MHZ and so much clearer. It's will give you the extra edge at gaming. This monitor is THE monitor for gaming no doubt. Its worth every penny. Make sure you set it to 144 Htz in your graphic card control panel and then in setting on your games also set it at 144 Mhz. After an hour of playing revert back to 60Mhz and you will not believe how you ever played on this setting. Buy 1 now.
