Home Reviews Peripherals Benq XL2720T – a very large monitor for extreme gamers

Benq has developed a loyal cult following amongst hard core gamers for its fast refresh and more recently an uncanny ability to reproduce ‘dark scenes” with its Black eQualizer colour engine. The new 27" XL2720T is serious dude.

We all know that in the darkness lurks the enemy and Black eQualiser may just give a gamer the edge in spotting the bad guys.
