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.

It is also one of the first monitors to have a hand held remote S Switch control to set pre-set display settings for up to three different modes or games (or work or entertainment). It saves time and effort in not having to negotiate on-screen menus using those small push buttons characteristic of most monitors.

Gaming experts from Counter-Strike also provided down loadable presets that take advantage of different scaling from 4:3 to 16:9 or 10 and screen sizes from 17 to 27” – all in the pursuit of the best game experience.

Tech specifications include:

Panel: 27” 16:9, 1920x1080, 120Hz, 160/170 degree viewing angle, TN panel
Brightness: 350 cd/m2
1ms GtG response time
