BenQ ZOWIE XL2740 Overview
The XL2740 27" 16:9 240 Hz LCD Monitor from BenQ is a gaming monitor designed for professional eSports tournaments as well as everyday gaming. It features a Twisted Nematic (TN) panel that provides a low 1 ms response time that is suitable for the fast-paced action scenes found in First-Person Shooters (FPS) and racing games. Furthermore, with a 1920 x 1080 resolution and a 240 Hz refresh rate, it delivers fluid Full HD entertainment. The ZOWIE XL2740 also has a 320 cd/m² brightness rating and a 1000:1 static contrast ratio that offers darker blacks and brighter bright colors for an immersive viewing experience. Due to the brightness of the screen, there may be reflections on the bezel of some displays; however, BenQ has outfitted the XL2740 with a shield and bezels that will reduce reflections so you can concentrate on the game. Connect this monitor to your system via DVI, HDMI, or DisplayPort and then adjust it to your viewing preference. Otherwise, use the 100 x 100mm VESA mounting holes on the back to install an alternate mount or stand.
240 Hz Refresh Rate
With a faster refresh rate, you'll be able to enjoy less blurring and screen tearing providing a more responsive gaming experience. Please note that refresh rate is not to be confused with frame rate, and having a fast refresh rate will not improve your experience unless you have a capable graphics card.
Shield - Helps You Focus on the Game
With the Shield, viewers benefit from adjustable angles along with a removable design that allows the Shield to adapt to various environments according to preference.
The S Switch is an accessory that provides you with easy access to settings and switching between saved profiles.
Enhanced Game Modes
The XL-series monitors are equipped with multiple game modes optimized for different scenarios such as First-Person Shooters (FPS) so you can swap to a better viewing experience at the press of a button and Black eQualizer mode, which increases the visibility in dark scenes without overexposing bright areas.
Optimize Gaming Precision
Color Vibrance gives you the flexibility to easily tune preferred color tone and makes color grading more defined. With 20 levels of Color Vibrance settings, you can get specific viewing requirements and preferences for all types of gameplay.
Personalize Viewing Angles
The height-adjustable stand can be operated with just one finger that allows you to easily obtain your preferred viewing angle, maximizing comfort.
Flicker-Free & Low Blue Light
Flicker-free and low blue light technology help reduce eye strain so you can game longer.
Minimize Visual Distractions
The XL-series has a frame that reduces reflection from the screen so you can keep your focus on the game.
Use the built-in USB hub to charge and sync mobile devices or transfer data from external storage solutions.
