Motion Blur Reduction for Extra Clarity Throughout the Game
BenQ’s new Motion Blur Reduction technology further enhances an ultra-smooth, free-of-blur gaming experience, particularly for action-packed FPS games where every millisecond count. With Motion Blur Reduction, gamers no longer suffer from time and gaming comfort lost to poor vision quality created by motion blur and lagging. Instead, they have everything to gain with more reaction time advantage on their side to achieve ultimately a flawless victory.
20-Level Color Vibrance Setting to Optimize Gaming Precision
It is absolutely vital that the XL2730Z give you the flexibility you need to get the color performance you seek. This is why BenQ built into the monitor 20 levels of Color Vibrance setting to meet gamers’ specific viewing requirements and preferences for all types of gameplay. This unique feature is accessible via On Screen Display (OSD) or Display Pilot for added convenience.
Customize Your Individual Viewing Preference
The Display Mode and Smart Scaling features allow you to change the monitor view to suit your preference and to simulate any in-game experience. Using the Display Mode function, the monitor can be easily changed between 8 different screen sizes, from 17”, 19”, 19”W, 21.5”, 22”W, 23”W, 23.6”W and 24”W.
If you’re looking to customize your screen size further, you can also take advantage of the Smart Scaling feature. The Smart Scaling feature gives you the flexibility to freely scale the screen content to any custom size. With just one monitor, you can simulate any game play and practice under different display sizes for tournaments. Use the Display Mode and Smart Scaling together to get the possible view for any application or game.
The Black eQualizer for Total Visibility
Poor visibility in dark scenes can cost even the most skillful gamers their game. To give you unprecedented level of control and visibility for console gaming, the XL2730Z is built with the Black eQualizer color engine technology to brighten dark scenes without over-exposing the bright areas. This helps preserve vital details, enabling you to spot your enemies easily in critical combat and react quickly in any situation. What’s more, with maximized visual clarity, you’ll also experience more eye comfort and less eye fatigue during intense games or after a long day of practice.
Adjustment Scale Design for Effortless Set-up Every Time
To ensure that gamers can duplicate the exact same monitor set-up with the highest accuracy, efficiency and convenience, BenQ made a few additions to the XL2730Z’s Adjustment Scale Design. The adjustable height stand is now scaled with 14 height levels trackable by a moving marker. Trackable scales are also added to the screen, which tilts forward and backward to 0°, 10° and 20°, and swivels left and right to a wide range of angles. Every XL2730Z can be your personal XL2730Z.
S Switch Arc with a Rounder Fit for More Comfort
The S Switch Arc is an external controller that comes with preset buttons that can be customized with personal display settings for gaming, work or entertainment use. The S Switch Arc not only sports a quick key for the Auto Game Mode but also a rounder look for a more natural and comfortable grip that enables gamers to best navigate between game modes.
Display Pilot for On-Screen Display Navigation
The newly upgraded Display Pilot function allows users to make all the on-screen display adjustments, plus provides them with direct access to the Game Mode Loader feature for downloading and installing the preset display settings of their favorite game or professional gamer’s screen instantly.
Auto Game Mode Setting for Added Ease and Convenience
The Auto Game Mode enables the XL2730Z to detect the genre of the game being played and switch the display setting to the corresponding game mode automatically. It is also designed to make new game mode recommendations for download. This unique feature is accessible through the On Screen Display (OSD) setting as well as the Display Pilot software or the S Switch Arc that has a quick key built in for this mode.
Game Mode to Go for Universal Access Wherever You Go
To save gamers the hassle of having to re-download and reset game modes, the XL2730Z allows gamers to store game modes onto a USB flash drive for easy and simple carriage. They can also share their own game modes with everyone via cloud storage or social media platforms. This innovative feature allows gaming communities to share, collaborate and bond freely with ease.
A Superior Build for a Rock-Steady Gameplay
Sporting the latest angular, compact base that aligns perfectly parallel to the desk surface and a monitor stand meticulously placed in golden ratio to counter balance the display, the next-generation base stand design offers a new level of stability for the steadiest gameplay – with stringent swivel and shock testing results to prove it. Additionally, the reduced width and depth further shortens the distance between the keyboard and the monitor, bringing you closer than ever to the game.
Refined Metallic Appeal Perfected by Ergonomic Handle Design
The aluminum alloy coated monitor stand sends off a sophisticated yet mysterious metallic appeal that conjures up the majesty of the game. On top of that, it is ergonomically optimized with a widened and thickened top handle that’s comfortable to grip, making the monitor much easier to carry from one place to another.
Retractable Metallic Headphone Hook Adding Flexibility and Durability
Placing a retractable headphone hook on the left side of the monitor display conveniently puts your headphones within arm’s reach. The material of the headphone hook, which has been upgraded to aluminum alloy, offers extra hardness and strength for improved durability.
Low Blue Light as Eye Safety Precautionary Measure
