What customers say about "Key Specs"
Zowie XL2540 e-Sports Gaming Monitor
  • I came from a 120hz screen and I can see and feel the difference that the higher refresh rate provides.
  • 240Hz refresh seems instant and allows you to aim very smoothly at moving targets etc.
  • 240hz is a huge improvement from 144hz especially if you take gaming seriously.
  • Works as it says, quality screen, 240hz excellent gaming monitor.
  • The difference between 60Hz and 240Hz is just phenomenal.
Zowie XL2546 e-Sports Gaming Monitor
  • For competitive gaming, 240Hz and DyAc are certainly impressive specs.
  • After playing games on a 45Hz monitor for 8 years, buying this was a huge leap for me.
  • I noticed the difference both in quality of graphics and in game play, as everything was so much smoother in 240Hz!
  • In my opinion it's one of the if not the best 240hz e sports monitor.
  • This monitor is legitimately the best 240hz display @ 1080p thats out right now.

What customers say about "Display"
Zowie XL2540 e-Sports Gaming Monitor
  • I seem to play better and not having screen tear is so much nicer to look at.
  • Colours reproduction are good, just once configured!
  • TN panel feels not good to eyes if you have used ips panel for a long time.
  • The image is really good and text on icons is fairly Ok a tiny bit fuzzy compared to 1440p res ips monitor but that is to be expected.
  • The colour reproduction is a bit bad for photoshop or design work.
Zowie XL2546 e-Sports Gaming Monitor
  • Brilliant quality, colorful picture monitor with excellent features.
  • Colours as for TN are good, better than my previous screen.
  • Even though the monitor panel isnt a IPS panel the picture quality is fine.
  • The panel's picture quality is incredibly disapointing, even compared with some other TN panels I own.
  • Only thing i don't like is that it's a TN panel so yeah colors are not the best.

What customers say about "Features"
Zowie XL2540 e-Sports Gaming Monitor
  • The monitor is one of the best for gaming. Not the best for PS but this is for what it made.
  • Very easy to adjust height of the screen and angle.
  • The adjustability pan -5 to +20 degree, adjustable height, super bright screen.
  • It has some brilliant features such as a dynamic brightness mode that will match the the dark and bright areas.
  • The S- switch is very useful. I was slightly surprised by how much I have used it.
Zowie XL2546 e-Sports Gaming Monitor
  • Dy-ac is not snake oil but actually really good in fast paced moments.
  • This monitor is only to play games for example CSGO and other FPS's.
  • Very expensive however addons like black equaliser make it more worth it.
  • A lot of adjustment options. You can adjust the height of the screen, adjust the tilt, turn it to the right or left, and even rotate it.
  • Shields are nothing special, looks great in the picture, worse in reality.
