Bought this monitor the day it went on sell (via BenQ Shop). Unboxed, immediately disappointed by the out-of-box color. Menus were pleasant to navigate so it wasn't a pain to adjust the monitor to my liking. Came with one dead (white) pixel. I can only see it if I'm looking for it so it's not really a problem. Motion is super slick with Instant Mode on and AMA set to High. If you have an NVIDIA video card, you can mix Digital Vibrance in to really get some performance out of this monitor. Overall very pleased with the monitor despite the problems I've had.

The headphone holder on the back of this monitor is overall my favorite feature.

The Lightboost hack is incredible (google it) but I would only recommend doing it if you can get a solid 120fps out of the game your playing. Again, if you have Nvidia you can adjust the color once lightboost is activated within Nvidia Control Panel. You can not adjust monitor color when 3D mode is active (only brightness and contrast).

Here's my calibration settings;

BenQ XL2720T:
Brightness: 100 or lower (your choice)
Contrast: 60
Sharpness: 6-7
Black eQualizer: 10 (+/- 1, your choice)
Colour Temperature - R:86, G:86, B:100
Instant Mode: On
AMA: High

Nvidia Control Panel:
Brightness: +50
Contrast: +50
Gamma: +1.00
Digital Vibrance: +62-75 (your choice)

Lightboost Hack NVIDIA Color Calibration:
Nvidia Control Panel:
Gamma: +1.05-1.09
Digital Vibrance: +95
Hue: +357

Let me get this out of the way first - yes, it looks quite bad out of the box, with super bright picture and washed out colors. That being said, it looks quite good to me after spending some time and adjusting it. Offers a ton of options with regards to adjusting color, etc. In general to me it looks about as good as you can get with a TN panel.

No dead pixels.

Wired remote to change settings is a nice and useful touch, allows you to work the monitor menu without fiddling with buttons on the monitor itself. The remote has a clickwheel which is used to choose and select options, back button and 3 hotkeys to which you can map different monitor settings, this makes it very easy to navigate through monitor menus and adjust the settings. Hotkeys for different monitor settings are very convenient - I use one for desktop use and two others for two different gaming settings. Also liked how the remote has a magnet inside and attaches magnetically to the base of the monitor. Monitor stand has a handle in case you want to lug it around on a regular basis. In general the design is quite good and definitely above average when it comes to attention to detail.

I also tried ASUS VG278HE - it was quite good as well but had far less options with regards to picture adjustment, thus I decided to go with the BenQ monitor.

This is the first time I tried a 120Hz monitor and there's definitely no going back to 60Hz!

Also wanted to add that HDMI cable is not included - however you will not be able to get 120Hz over HDMI, anyway, and if you are not using 120Hz then why buy this monitor...

I'll keep this short and simple:

Pros:

- If you can play your favorite games at 120+fps, this is certainly worth considering. Rock solid display! Great response time.

- The menu "pad" is awesome. It makes menu options easy to pick and choose in any lighting, and it's like having a mouse for the monitor.

- Super bright. You shouldn't have ANY problem looking for brightness to suit your desires.

Cons:

- Not-too-good color reproduction. This is obvious, though. Not just in reviews, but because it's a TN panel so that's no surprise. It's not "bad", but side by side with my other monitor it's quite obvious. This isn't a deal breaker for me.

- Only 1080p. At 27" display, you can really start to see how higher resolutions become a more enjoyable experience.

I haven't used the 3d on this monitor (yet). But if I play TOMB RAIDER or CRYSIS 3 in 3d some day, I'll make a revision to this review.

RECOMMENDED FOR GAMERS.

Bought this because its supposed to be the best!

Im so happy with it compared to my t.v

Quick pro/con list

Pro: response time is insane! Widescreen/picture on this thing is just brilliant.
It can raise on its stand about a foot to being completly touching at bottom of stand.

The black equalizer this monitor offers is really a huge plus in dark/bad lighting areas.

No more am I lagging as much or don't register shots on enemies(Cod)

It has 12O MHz for watching sports or fast graphic viewing.

Quality and little things that also come with it: well made and did I mention a place to hang up your turtle beaches/astros/etc. Also has a plastic cover that is scaled to fit around whole screen and stand haha. Plenty of plug ins for just about anything.

Cons: Besides the default screen setting and having to tweak them to my likings... I really have none.. Maybe if It could tilt downwards more at a angle maybe.. It can swivel and tilt upwards as much as you need.. Ok so much for my quick review haha..

450 bucks but I wanted 27inch monitor with 1ms so Its really up to you.

Package was supposed to arrive on a saturday but did not show.
Carrier problem lost in transit but Amazon offered me for refund if I didn't want to keep the package. Hope this helps/helped! Have a ? About it feel free to ask
