    Hi Hilbert, you've got a typo with "TB nased" in the first sentence. Very interesting monitor though, not sure how I feel about the looks of it but on the other hand I really could use those in my current setup to get rid of the annoying reflection of the window to my back :D

    Unfortunately BENQ overprice their products way too much. For example the XL2411Z (pretty much same goes for the XL2430P) are way more expensive than the cheaper option AOC P2460PF but the AOC even includes freesync...

    Another overpriced crappy TN monitor. Just slap the "Gamer" tag and some weird ears and voila. Premium priced monitor.

    I don't know about you but I don't play my games off to the side of the monitor. I like to look straight at it. :D

    They have various models listed on top right, thats just one of them.

    The XL2730Z has actually been released over a year ago, just not the zowie edition, which I think the side panels are only difference. Review:

    http://www.tftcentral.co.uk/reviews/benq_xl2730z.htm

    I saw it in a shop and did not like what I saw. Looked so dull and bland. The matte panel coating probably had more to do with that and my dislike of it than being TN.

    http://zowie.benq.com/monitors/xl2735 is the new monitor with side panels and a new function called ==>

    " DyAc™ Technology – Same 144Hz, Different Clarity BenQ ZOWIE exclusive technology - “Dynamic Accuracy” maintains remarkable clarity during in-game movement that achieves a smoother experience, enabling players to swiftly capture and hit the targets."

    See the difference: https://youtu.be/rw_CVCyNCHk

    Other Zowie monitors don't have this " DyAC technology ", am I right or wrong in this matter?
