COSTA MESA, Calif. — Jan. 17, 2014 — BenQ America Corp., a globally renowned LED and gaming monitor expert, today announced that its game-changing XL2720G monitor was recognized with a Reviewed.com Editors' Choice Award at the 2014 International CES. Winning in the gaming category, the XL2720G utilizes NVIDIA's G-Sync technology and was shown for the first time last week at CES.
Reviewed.com is the official Editors' Choice Media Partner at CES, where hundreds of new products debut each year. The experts at Reviewed.com specifically hand-selected the best of the show as CES 2014 Editors' Choice award winners. The process began when editors refined their finalist lists within the various product categories, paying close attention to innovative features, striking technology, design elements, and value set. From there, editors sought out finalists in order to experience their products on the show floor. A final voting process took place in a closed-room session attended only by the Reviewed.com editorial staff. The end result of this rigorous process is the list of award-winning products dubbed Best of Show at CES.
"It's a tremendous honor for our XL2720G monitor to receive a Reviewed.com Editors' Choice Award at its very first public showing, and it's a real indication of the buzz we've already received for this exciting new monitor," said Bob Wudeck, Associate Vice President of Strategy and Business Development at BenQ America Corp. "The XL2720G is one of the first monitors to integrate G-Sync, which means gamers no longer have to choose between game performance and picture quality. As the Reviewed.com editor said: ‘You don't need to be a seasoned gamer to appreciate the difference."
Featuring NVIDIA's G-Sync technology, the company's new XL2720G gaming monitor eliminates performance issues related to image tearing, stuttering, and latency, providing gamers with the ultimate in smooth, fast-action play. The monitor comes equipped with BenQ's RevolutionEyes™ technology, helping users take a turn for the better by providing the comfort needed for exceptional monitor performance during competitive play.
Based on BenQ's market-changing XL gaming monitor series, the new XL2720G display adds three new G-Sync gaming modes to further augment the gaming experience: the G-Sync Mode for smooth, low-latency gaming; Low Motion Blur Mode for CRT-like sharpness of moving objects; and a full-featured 3D Vision Mode to create more lifelike on-screen action. By synchronizing the display's refresh rate to the graphic card's GPU, G-Sync technology eliminates screen tearing for better graphic integrity, minimizes stutter for smoother gaming, and reduces input lag for seamless, low-latency gaming responses. The results are scenes that display instantly, sharper object resolutions, and smoother overall gameplay.
To increase visual comfort and reduce fatigue, the XL2720G monitor features BenQ's RevolutionEyes technology. Utilizing ZeroFlicker™ capabilities, the monitor eliminates traditional LED flicker issues during prolonged gaming sessions. The monitor also features BenQ's popular Black eQualizer, which enables total gaming visibility by allowing players to adjust brightness without over-exposing white levels, revealing critical combat details with improved visibility in darkened areas.
For even more gaming comfort, the display is equipped with Low Blue Light technology. Designed to manage the exposure of blue spectrum light, the monitor helps gamers protect their eyes during extended periods by providing several low blue light levels that automatically adjust emission without affecting picture quality. For setup flexibility, the monitor is fully height-adjustable and features an intuitive on-screen user interface.
BenQ's new 27-inch XL2720G G-Sync monitor is expected to ship in Q2 2014 and a 24-inch version (XL2420G) will also be available. More information on BenQ's full line of gaming monitors is available at www.BenQ.us.
