BenQ Zowie XL2731K e-sports LCD Monitor with Full HD and 165 Hz

Another new esports Zowie monitor screen is coming from the Taiwanese company BenQ. The Zowie XL2731K measures 27 inches diagonally and has a TN panel with full HD resolution (1920 x 1080 pixels) with a refresh rate of up to 165 Hz.

The contrast ratio is 1000: 1 and the typical luminance is 320 cd/m². There is no further information on the response time, but it should be around 1 ms, as is typical for TN systems. VRR (Variable Refresh Rate) is at the start against tearing in games.

Alternatively, with DyAc, a mode against motion blur can be used, which, however, reduces the brightness of the monitor. A black stabilizer that brightens dark areas in games is also not missing. Three HDMI 2.0 inputs, a DisplayPort 1.2, a USB service connection, and a headphone output are offered on the interface side.

The ergonomic features include rotation, inclination, height adjustment, pivot, VESA mount (100 x 100 mm), blue light filter, and flicker-free background lighting. However, the panel is only flicker-free if DyAc is deactivated.

The BenQ Zowie XL2731K weighs 8.6 kg, has a power consumption of fewer than 45 watts, and can optionally be supplemented with the S-Switch remote control.

Price and availability

The BenQ Zowie XL2731K esports LCD monitor screen has been priced at $299 and is now available to pre-order via the website.
