XL2730Z 27" 2560x1440 TN FREESYNC 144Hz Gaming Widescreen LED Monitor - Black/Red

From years expertise in the development of professional gaming monitors and every close encounter with legendary gamers around the world, we have learned that what defines a truly victorious gaming monitor, or should you say “the best gaming monitor”, really depends on the performance-driven features that make the critical difference between victory and defeat. Gaming is in the details that matter. This is why our engineers and designers strive to perfect every detail that may ultimately contribute to the triumph of the game.

Fast response time of 1ms 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.

BenQ’s new Motion Blur Reduction technology further enhances an ultra-smooth, free-of-blur gaming experience, particularly for action-packed FPS games where every millisecond count. With Motion Blur Reduction, gamers no longer suffer from time and gaming comfort lost to poor vision quality created by motion blur and lagging. Instead, they have everything to gain with more reaction time advantage on their side to achieve ultimately a flawless victory.

It is absolutely vital that the XL2730Z give you the flexibility you need to get the color performance you seek. This is why BenQ built into the monitor 20 levels of Color Vibrance setting to meet gamers’ specific viewing requirements and preferences for all types of gameplay. This unique feature is accessible via On Screen Display (OSD) or Display Pilot for added convenience.

The Display Mode and Smart Scaling features allow you to change the monitor view to suit your preference and to simulate any in-game experience. Using the Display Mode function, the monitor can be easily changed between 7different screen sizes, from 17”, 19”, 19”W, 21.5W”, 22”W, 23”W, 23.6”W, 24”W and 27”W.

If you’re looking to customize your screen size further, you can also take advantage of the Smart Scaling feature. The Smart Scaling feature gives you the flexibility to freely scale the screen content to any custom size. With just one monitor, you can simulate any game play and practice under different display sizes for tournaments. Use the Display Mode and Smart Scaling together to get the possible view for any application or game.

The newly improved Black eQualizer Dynamic color engine technology takes visibility optimization to a whole new level with automatic brightness adjustments. The XL2730Z is able to detect the input source and automatically fine-tune the amount of brightness enhancement within the range of the brightness level selected by the user. Now, gamers can spot their enemies in critical combat effortlessly and react to any situation quickly without having to lift a finger for manual adjustments.

To ensure that gamers can duplicate the exact same monitor set-up with the highest accuracy, efficiency and convenience, BenQ made a few additions to the XL2730Z’s Adjustment Scale Design. The adjustable height stand is now scaled with 14 height levels trackable by a moving marker. Trackable scales are also added to the screen, which tilts forward and backward to 0°, 10° and 20°, and swivels left and right to a wide range of angles. Every XL2730Z can be your personal XL2730Z.

The S Switch Arc is an external controller that comes with preset buttons that can be customized with personal display settings for gaming, work or entertainment use. The S Switch Arc not only sports a quick key for the Auto Game Mode but also a rounder look for a more natural and comfortable grip that enables gamers to best navigate between game modes.

The newly upgraded Display Pilot function allows users to make all the on-screen display adjustments, plus provides them with direct access to the Game Mode Loader feature for downloading and installing the preset display settings of their favorite game or professional gamer’s screen instantly.

The Auto Game Mode enables the XL2730Z to detect the genre of the game being played and switch the display setting to the corresponding game mode automatically. It is also designed to make new game mode recommendations for download. This unique feature is accessible through the On Screen Display (OSD) setting as well as the Display Pilot software or the S Switch Arc that has a quick key built in for this mode.

To save gamers the hassle of having to re-download and reset game modes, the XL2730Z allows gamers to store game modes onto a USB flash drive for easy and simple carriage. They can also share their own game modes with everyone via cloud storage or social media platforms. This innovative feature allows gaming communities to share, collaborate and bond freely with ease.

Sporting the latest angular, compact base that aligns perfectly parallel to the desk surface and a monitor stand meticulously placed in golden ratio to counter balance the display, the next-generation base stand design offers a new level of stability for the steadiest gameplay – with stringent swivel and shock testing results to prove it. Additionally, the reduced width and depth further shortens the distance between the keyboard and the monitor, bringing you closer than ever to the game.

The aluminum alloy coated monitor stand sends off a sophisticated yet mysterious metallic appeal that conjures up the majesty of the game. On top of that, it is ergonomically optimized with a widened and thickened top handle that’s comfortable to grip, making the monitor much easier to carry from one place to another.

Placing a retractable headphone hook on the left side of the monitor display conveniently puts your headphones within arm’s reach. The material of the headphone hook, which has been upgraded to aluminum alloy, offers extra hardness and strength for improved durability.

Practice long hours with clear, comfortable vision or compete with top-notch vision condition with BenQ’s new Low Blue Light. The blue spectrum light, which is produced by regular computer screens, is a critical cause of eye damage, eyestrain, headaches and sleeping disorders. Now with the offering of various adjustable low blue light levels, gamers can better protect their eyes. So there would be no need for yellow tinted eyeglasses for additional eye protection, and gameplay can be clear, comfortable and hassle-free!

Developed in collaboration with pro gamers, the XL2730Z has been upgraded to eliminate flickering at all brightness levels. This effectively reduces eye fatigue and elevates gaming performance through extreme visual comfort for even the most hardcore gamers enrolling long hours in action. Armed with the Gaming-comfort Flicker-free Technology, the BenQ Gaming Monitor is an epic weapon over your ultimate rivals.

Was expecting more

Well, after buying the AOC 34" super wide monitor after many reviews and videos watched saying that it was amazing, best monitor they have ever had, I sent mine back, it suffered massively from screen tearing, I got this one to replace it after yet again, many videos watched and I sent this back also. Maybe I am just not seeing what other people do, or they are upgrading from something from the Jurassic period. I have had a Acer G24 for around 7yrs now. Its only running at 1920x1200 and is a TN panel but picture quality wise and sharpness, it blows the other two out of the water in my opinion. It also suffers from screen tearing but as I have said, its a few years old now. So with the new technologies these new monitors brought to the table I was expecting big things. AOC is



I have this monitor since 5th of April, and yesterday got it back after BenQ/Repairtech upgraded with V002 firmware.

I cannot describe how fantastic this monitor is. That is TN panel is completely irrelevant, when you have such crisp screen with great blacks, working with Freesync.

Everything looks so great not only on gaming but desktop or browsing like this page while writing this.

Fantastic product.


Awsome Monitor

I have had this for 4 weeks now and I have to say it's night and day over standard 60Hz non freesync monitors. My friend has the Rog swift and I must say I(he) prefer this as it has more gamer touches like the headphone stand and the equalizer. Another advantage would be the multiple ports over the swift so you can have your ps4/xbox one hooked up unlike the swift which is display port only. Right size for 1440p monitor also. It cost over


AMD Freesync is here to stay!

I Highly recommend this monitor for any gamer with a current AMD GPU or if there looking to upgrade to the 300 series!
The colours are incredible for a TN panel, it's amazing how much of a difference Freesync makes and how it improves your gaming experience.

FreeSync Wow!

The difference this makes to games is mind blown. Everything so far has been a enjoyable experience. I am so much blown away by how well a single 290x @1440p handle games and FreeSync helps keep things smooth.

They been a couple miss information going around lately about FreeSync making monitor ghost etc this is false! if they is ghosting its the panel and not FreeSync.
This panel has the same amount of over shoot as my other BenQ XL2420T and can be adjusted with AMA.

The other is stutter when below the FreeSync spec 40-144hz below 40hz I noticed no stutter in my own testing. To me it feels the same as running low frame rate on my other monitor.

+Very well priced - Even more so at this moment of writing this @


Great Purchase, Highly Recommended

I bought this on the back of the CES videos of Freesync. I know freesync isn't working but I needed a new monitor and my 1920x1080 TN panel was getting tired. The build quality is amazing and the stand, is one of the best I have seen. The panel itself is very light and does have VESA mounting capability. When I had set the monitor up I was amazed how good the colours were considering the panel, such a massive improvement from my old TN. The high refresh rate coupled with the sharper resolution make this monitor a joy to use.

One downside is that the AMD drivers out of the box have issues displaying 1440p over 144hz. But this can be remedied by looking here
