The stunning monitor is equipped with the latest Motion Blur Reduction technology, Low Blue Light, Gaming-comfort ZeroFlicker™, Gaming Refresh rate Optimization Management (GROM), and Display Pilot feature to deliver agile performance, viewing comfort and convenience all at once – for your victory and entertainment.
Gaming is in the Details
The XL2720Z 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.
Motion Blur Reduction for Extra Clarity Throughout the Game
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 counts. 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.
Low Blue Light as Eye Safety Precautionary Measure
Practice long hours with clear, comfortable vision or compete with top-notch vision conditions 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!
Gaming Refresh rate Optimization Management (GROM)
BenQ manages to provide more than just the refresh rate feature for different resolutions to reach more levels of optimal refresh rates (100/120/144Hz). Gaming Refresh rate Optimization Management (GROM) aims to bring users incomparable gaming performance. With the gamer-driven GROM that integrates with Display Mode and Smart Scaling strengths, BenQ offers a total refresh rate solution for all gaming enthusiasts.
Gaming-comfort ZeroFlicker Technology
