Are you looking for a suitable monitor to suit your gaming needs? ZOWIE XL2566K may just be the perfect monitor for you!

ZOWIE’s latest 360Hz monitor is the first 360Hz with a fast TN panel in the world that provides FPS pro gamers the most holistic experience.

Intuitive buttons behind the monitor


Did you know that ZOWIE monitors are used by organisations and pro-gamers all over the globe? XL2566K is the flagship model that provides highly optimized smoothness and quick response for competitive gamers, and harnesses the power of different customizable features suitable for amateurs and pros alike for all kinds of usage.

DyAc+™ is easily adjustable to your preference


DyAc+™ is an exclusive technology designed by ZOWIE specifically to reduce motion blur in LCD technology. DyAc is adjustable – and once you check your OSD menu, you’d be able to see that there are 3 options for DyAc:

  • Premium (clearest)
  • High (medium)
  • Off (DyAc off)

With DyAc switched on, the Flicker Free function will automatically be switched off, and when DyAc is switched off, Flicker Free function will automatically be switched on. 

If you’re wondering, enabling DyAc+™ will not reduce the brightness on XL2566K!

Twisted Nematic (TN) Display VS In-Plane Switching (IPS)

You may wonder why ZOWIE still uses the TN panel in 2022, and if the ZOWIE XL2566K is indeed more suitable for your gaming needs – here’s a comparison of XL2566K (Fast-TN panel type with DyAc+™ VS a Fast-IPS panel type monitor with VRB). 

The specs of these models all harness similar response times, but when compared to TN panels, the IPS 240Hz & 360Hz panel does not offer better motion clarity – which means that the same or higher refresh rates specs on the IPS panel, does not always point to having a better experience.

FPS pro gamers prefer to use Fast-TN panel as compared to Fast-IPS panel monitors as the fast response time is enhanced and this is also why ZOWIE is still providing TN panel monitors with 360Hz.
