Best FPS monitor ever, even coming from an Asus PG279q in 1440p
I bought and cancelled this item twice before it shipped for two reasons: one because I'm nuts, and two because I thought I would be dissapointed going from 1440 to 1080p. To add to this, $500 is not an easy pill to swallow especially coming from 1440p g-sync to 1080p Dyac. Coming from the Asus PG27...

[Monitor] ASUS TUF 280hz 24.5” 1080p monitor. $319, in stock
i bought this monitor as well as the one all the cs pros use (benq XL2546s) and looked at them side by side and tried them both in game... VG259QM by far the best man. has all the pros of an ips (color qual) and the pros of the leading TN's (speed/response/lag).

The BEST Gaming Monitor You CAN'T Buy - BenQ ZOWIE XL2546S - Detailed Review
So in conclusion, what do i think of the benq zowie xl2546s? Is it worth 500 and should you get one well? First of all, you can't get one anymore: you'll have to wait till september for their announcement of the newer model. However, when it comes to the price that really depends on what you're looking for this is a very focused monitor and its focus is on the esports scene.

Best FPS gaming monitor ever. Not so great for work or multi-tasking.
I sold my old monitor which was a BenQ 2730 2560 x 1440 144hz so I could buy this instead which is about the same price. It hurt at first sacrificing resolution for refresh rate, but since I am getting more competitive in Overwatch I figured I would get this 240hz monitor instead. The DyAc feature i...

Excellent gaming monitor. Not the best for picture quality.
My background - Seasoned hardcore FPS player of 18+ years with competitive CS experience. Upon initial connection, I noticed an immediate improvement in smoothness and response, even at the desktop level. Coming from a 165hz 1440p ASUS PG278, the picture quality definitely suffers. The monitor is sh...

"Upgraded" from my 144hz 1440p 1ms Dell s2716dg TN panel. I shouldn't have.
I bought this monitor to replace my aging s2716dg, Dell's 144hz 1ms 1440p TN panel w/ ulmb. 1. I wanted 244hz instead of 144hz. 2. I wanted lower natural resolution so I could pump more frames. 3. I wanted "Black eQualizer" and good motion blur reduction. What I got was not pleasant. I'm 24 hours in...

Amazing for gaming,movies and anything else after you calibrate it correctly. XL2546
This is the clearest TN panel I have ever seen and the 240hz makes a huge difference coming from my Asus VG248QE 144hz monitor this thing is so insanely clear and the DYac is an amazing tech. Some reviewers said this is not good for movies they obviously use the crappy presets which suck on all moni...

Bad for sniping. BenQ all hype. not great for anything. BENQ bad at eyecare feature.
overall; ok for close to medium range gunfights, terrible for long distance. eyecare adds trashy white film over everything, cant turn off. black equaliser is just gamma light. color vibrance is grea but no point if black equaliser is terrible. dyac is the best. motion blur is soo godly on this moni...

BENQ CUSTOMER SERVICE IS TERRIBLE
I bought this monitor to replace my ASUS VG24QE 144hz monitor, but for some reason the BenQ is causing me issues that my ASUS never had and apparently nobody at Benq gives a s*** about my issue getting resolved and it seems like none of them even know what they are talking about. So here is my situa...

At least now I know I'm bad
I bought this monitor to up my game in CS:GO. I was previously playing on a 60hz monitor, so this was a massive upgrade. Now when I lose, I know it's just because I suck.
