    BenQ XL2730Z Reviews

    XL2730Z 27- Widescreen LED Backlit LCD Gaming Monitor is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Freesync Monitor This is by far the best display I have ever had for personal use. I upgraded from an 8 year old Samsung TN panel to this one. I thought about going to IPS, but my wife has an IPS panel and I really didn't want the glow around the edges. You really can't tell much difference between this panel and the IPS panel in terms of colors, which was shocking to me.QC is great - no dead pixels. Mount adjusts in all directions (tilt, swivel, pivot, height, etc.). Tons of inputs, and even a headphone mount (which comes in handy).I did have to adjust the colors a bit out of the box, but other than that I have been enjoying this display the last few weeks, and do not regret buying this display. I paired the display with the R9 390x and am enjoying some awesome FreeSync gaming. :)@ it's the one that swayed me toward this display.Also, B&H was awesome. Price dropped right after I purchased, and I sent them an e-mail and they issued me a refund for the difference, no questions asked!
