That's the thing though... there wasn't nearly enought information about the XL2740 on the internet for me to be able to decide whether I'd want it for real, or not.
And even if there are people posting about a monitor and providing information that might still not be enough... a perfect example of this was the LG 27GK750F for me.
I got really hyped by all the positive things users said about it on this forum and bought it... and it ended up being less responsive than the aw2518hf I've previously tried, good thing I did... otherwise I might have kept the LG and would have eventually regretted it, since I imagine I'd be so upset about not being able to score shots, which I previously did, that I'd put back my old xl2411z into action and would have realised that it feels more responsive, because of the lower signal processing lag.

TL;DR sometimes, you have to test/see things for yourself.


Hey bro, loved your review. I am bascially having the same need. I dont care about color accuary or whatsoever. All I care about is having to game in competitive environment. Would you please mind telling me your ALL your settings for the monitor to play FPS games at competitve level.

It seems like XL2740 is out of stock everywhere and sellers clear their xl2546 stocks as well. Apparently, a model refresh is coming soon. Any ideas when and what that could be?

I expect 240hz 0,5ms models to come out in 2019. And Benq usually is not the first to release, so I wouldnt expect its availability really "soon".

If it doesn't have 60hz single strobing support I'm not buying it :/

Thank you for your post about accessing the factory menu on Benq monitors btw,
played around with OD gain on my XL2740.
