COSTA MESA, Calif. — April 23, 2015 — BenQ America Corp., an internationally renowned digital lifestyle solutions provider and professional gaming monitor pioneer, today announced that it is now shipping its flagship XL2730Z RevolutionEyes™ professional gaming monitor. Created to be the marketplace’s most immersive gaming device, the lightning-quick 27-inch monitor comes loaded with smooth-action features specifically designed to give players more comprehensive control over their gaming experience. Now compatible with AMD’s FreeSync technology, the new performance-driven display features Gaming Refresh-rate Optimization Management (GROM), a 1ms GTG response time, and BenQ’s renowned gaming features to offer competitive gamers the finest, smoothest, and fastest onscreen gaming experience to date.
The XL2730Z features BenQ’s RevolutionEyes technology focused on protecting the eyes during extended periods of use. Equipped with a direct LED-backlight system with ZeroFlicker™ technology, the device eliminates flickering at all brightness levels reducing eye strain and alleviating computer vision syndrome. When combined with the device’s built-in Low Blue Light modes, the monitor also successfully filters the exposure of emitted blue spectrum light — resulting in more comfortable viewing and longer sessions of competitive play.
“As the official gaming monitor sponsor of Major League Gaming, we make it our mission to put the market’s most innovative tools into the hands of today’s competitive gamers,” said Bob Wudeck, Associate Vice President, Strategy and Business Development at BenQ America Corp. “In developing the XL2730Z, BenQ is pushing this philosophy even further, combining high-speed features such as adaptive-sync, ultra-fast refresh rates, and BenQ-specific attributes that take gaming to the next level.”
BenQ’s XL2730Z monitor features 27 inches of 2560 x 1440 WQHD resolution, a TN panel, 144Hz refresh rate, and 1ms GTG response time to take fast-action gaming to an entirely new level. Now equipped with a GROM system and supporting adaptive-sync variable refresh-rate technology with AMD’s FreeSync graphics card, the XL2730Z gives players the freedom to customize their gaming experience by tweaking viewing preferences including refresh rates (100/120/144Hz), display resolutions, and screen sizes. For an even smoother gaming experience, the monitor uses BenQ’s Motion Blur Reduction 2.0 to render all fast-moving images fluidly without tearing or ghosting anywhere across the screen.
With the newly improved Black eQualizer 2.0, the XL2730Z is also able to detect the input source and automatically adjust the amount of brightness in the game within a range selected by the user. As a result, players can identify targets effortlessly and react quickly to any in-game situation without taking time out for manual adjustments. Using the Auto Game Mode setting, the monitor automatically detects the genre of the game being played and matches it to its preset color, while a “Game Mode to Go” feature allows gamers to save game modes onto a USB flash drive for quick and easy transportation.
To deliver optimal gameplay, gamers can choose from 20 preset levels of color vibrancy to meet specific viewing requirements. Using Display mode, users can also select from eight different screen sizes while Smart Scaling provides the flexibility to freely scale screen content to any custom measurement. To mimic the gaming experience of legendary gamers, the XL2730Z’s Game Mode Loader lets users choose from a wide selection of professional presets, while Display Pilot offers convenient onscreen display adjustments and instant access to several integrated features. Equipped with BenQ’s S Switch, the monitor’s external hardware switch gives players a better grip on changing between auto game modes and customized settings.
Now shipping, BenQ’s XL2730Z is available at a retail price of $599. More information on BenQ’s full line of products is available at www.BenQ.us.
