5.0 out of 5 stars Best Gaming Monitor 2012 July 4 2012
By Marlon
Verified Purchase
After returning another monitor at a retail store, I decided to go online and after reviewing response times i went with the Benq monitor, g2g is 2ms, and g2b is 5ms, running tests i had no ghosting or screen bleed, where crysis 2 which has heavy black to white environments has perfect picture.

The monitor supports dual link dvi (a requirement to run 120htz!) this is important for gamers as you wont have transition problems and have a fluid motion of movement, HDMI only supports 60mtz so so you will have signal delay. do not be confused thinking HDMI is the highest cable, as dual link digital cable supports higher memory standards.

out of the box i was happy with the packing job, all the parts are covered from scratches, it comes with its own remote for fast changing, it also supports manual up-scaling for lower resolutions or 4.3 environments, and you can save the setting so you can change in and out to diff standards. Out of the box its preset to gamer mode, and really you shouldn't change this unless you are into photo editing and need to change the tones. I did find i hate to turn down the saturation by 10 percent and brightness, as the blues uncorrected were a bit to bright.

As of writing this the new Benq gaming line is out, but its performance has been negative so decided to get a older model ( its not old just the first review of it is 2011, the manufacturer date of my monitor was end of FEB 2012, so in terms of storage not long at all.

Gaming wise, NO GHOSTING at 120htz running 16.9 1910x 1090 standard for 24 inch.

the monitors greatest feature is, moves up and down left and right! and comes with usb and every input you can imagine, no speakers but its a gamer line not a multimedia hack.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Gaming Monitor April 19 2013
Verified Purchase
After having many issues with the new Bioshock Infinite game (graphic "tearing") and trying to tweak out my graphics card (AMD Radeon HD 6950) to handle it, turns out all I needed was a good monitor with a 120 Hz refresh rate. After receiving the monitor, I followed some online guides to calibrate it and let me tell you... this thing rocks! The bonus was how quick I received this from Amazon... 2 days from date of order!

4.0 out of 5 stars I love 3d gaming May 30 2013
Verified Purchase
I don't know if 3d gaming is for everyone but I love it.
I have not compared this monitor to any other but I it meets all my expectation.
I only use it for gaming.
You need several cession before you can enjoy it to the maximum.
At first you fill a ittle dissy.

From now on I will only buy games that are compatibles.
