Re: 05/22/2020 UPDATE. The IPS 240hz monitor tier list.(I've measured/tried the all) and my honest explanation why.

Sorry I edited my post to make it clearer but I misread your signature I thought you owned the Acer Predator XB253QGX. Just an update for you @Faskill , here's a brand-new review of the monitor you asked for. It does not contain measurements, but can give you some idea of what to expect from this m...

Re: Need help choosing for competetive gaming (XL2546 / XG2730 / MAG251RX)

I got the MAG251RX and LG 27GN750 lately and prefer the LG for gaming, feels more responsive and clearer for me. Have the Alienware AW2521HF on the way next and will compare it to the LG. Acer ones seem the best or so people say so I would probably try those next. Also heard good things about the 2...

I’m not really sure what you're asking for, since Acer does not have any 280 Hz monitor in their offer, as far as I know. I already mentioned I had ASUS TUF VG279QM, so the bigger version of the monitor you were asking for - VG259QM. These two ASUS models are the only 280 Hz as far as I'm concerned...

You're welcome, and no, it would not, because frame rates lower than the strobe rate will have multiple-image artifacts. I understand, I did not think you could lower the strobe frequency but not the screen frequency, which is what you’re suggesting if I understand correctly? I’ve seen that you als...

It does not, apparently, at least with VRR. Should be fine with fixed refresh rate, however. I guess you could set fixed refresh rate at 144 Hz and use ELMB then, if you don't mind dimmed display. Thanks a lot for the in depth insight! Would playing with Gsync Off and 240Hz in order to have ELMB be...

Re: 05/22/2020 UPDATE. The IPS 240hz monitor tier list.(I've measured/tried the all) and my honest explanation why.

This is a very easy question to answer, and I believe you already know the answer to it as well. Upgrading to a 240hz+ monitor will give you a better experience at 150fps, than playing on a 144hz screen. You get to have more flexibility with strobing your monitor for example, or if you don't like s...

Re: Why do Pro gamers not use G-Sync?

Is there any use in using GSync when playing at fps significantly below the monitor frequency? For example when playing at 150fps on a 240Hz monitor. This is only my first hand impressions but I feel like my monitor is more reactive while it’s not trying to match its frequency to my lower fps count ...

Re: IPS 240hz -> Acer Predator XB253QGXbmiiprzx ??

Would be very interested in anyone’s insight on using the XB253QGX to play cod:mw CoD is a fps, the Acer is a low input lag IPS monitor with 240hz and good response time, the game should be good I meant more in term of image quality and anti-blur tech. I’m currently running a low end TN 144Hz monit...

Re: 05/22/2020 UPDATE. The IPS 240hz monitor tier list.(I've measured/tried the all) and my honest explanation why.

Hi everyone, would you recommend buying one of these 240Hz monitors for someone that would only play at a maximum of 150 fps? If so, which one would be the best fit? I am currently hesitating between the AW2521HF, MSI MAG251RX, VG259QM and the newer XB253QGX. I don’t know if I need backlight strobin...
