Okay, so why do you put XB273 X so low in your rating? Not so long ago you were saying that it was so amazing and you'd re-buy it, that it was at least the second best 240 Hz IPS monitor. Now it's just in the middle of the chart, below several other 240 Hz IPS options...

Hello,
Thanks for this thread it took me long enough to read it all lol, sorry in advance for my english if there are any mistakes.
I hesitate between the MSI MAG251RX, the Viewsonic XG270 and the ASUS VG259QM.

The MSI interests me for its versatility and performance, the viewsonic as well + the PureXP (what bothers me is that it's 27 ’) and the Asus for 280Hz.

I prefer to choose a 240Hz IPS screen to have better color than my MSI MAG241CV 144Hz TN which has rather bland colors.

I mainly play Valorant at the moment and CS: GO but I plan to play Cyberpunk as well when it comes out for example or other AAA games if I like them even though I'm mainly a competitive FPS player.

Since this is a fairly significant purchase I really try not to regret my purchase I have looked at a lot of reviews but some contradict each other, others it is obvious that they are paid to say that good without being objective .. .

I will therefore look for a very powerful screen but also versatile with the least ghosting, overshoot, and with the sharpest possible image (yes I am looking for the perfect screen even if it does not exist or is too expensive ... ) from what I could read it would be the MSI which would match my criteria but I could be wrong that's why I ask for your help so that I can make up my mind.

For you which one should I choose, should I wait for other 240Hz screens to come out soon? (I've only been interested in this for a short time so I don't know which ones will be released soon and if they will be better than the current ones) Will 360Hz be overpriced? and it will take a few years for them to reach the price of 240Hz?

I have an i7 8700k, a 2070 super, and an Asus rog maximus hero XI, when the RTX 3000 is released I think to change GPUs.

Thank you in advance for your help, I leave it to you and your knowledge to enlighten me. And again sorry for the possible mistakes I am French I use Google translate.

What made you think most of the Lenovo Legion y27q-20's you saw were fake? Where were you looking? I have two, one came from eBay and the other from Best Buy who are still selling them. They're both identical sans a slight oversaturation in the yellows on the eBay sample that I calibrated to match monitor #2. I chose the Lenovo over the LG GL850 because of the higher refresh, a reviewer thought it had a slightly more tweaked overdrive compared to the 850 with testufo. The color adjustments are better on the 850 though.

I was coming from an ancient Samsung 120hz TN which the Lenovo beats in every category and I'm happy with everything other than the lowish contrast ratio that the 850 shares.

Im about to buy a 240hz IPS monitor and im also hesitating between the MSI MAG251RX and the ASUS VG259QM. I was looking at the G7 32" where i was planning to play at 1080p at 24.5" non scaled but after reading about GPU and display scaling and apparent black smearing with VA panels i decided it was not worth the trouble. Also it's by far the most expensive. Now im just deciding between 280hz Asus and the 10 bit color MSI, what concerns me is apparently when you set the MSI to 240hz display scaling native in CRU, the 10 bit color option disappears in Nvidia control panel, which is what RLCS claims to make this monitor so amazing. I really do not want to play games with GPU scaling. Can someone address this concern?

Small review I received finally my Vg259qm

I came from a dell tn monitor s2716dgf

I really love the monitor.

First ergonomics are great you can adjust the monitor in every direction (height / pivot / angle)

I use it with 280 hz and 273 hz frame cap.

Od100 causes ghosting not worth it/ OD 80 seems almost perfect very slightly ghosting (you have to look carefully to see it) / OD 60 is also great but I always play at 80 seems the sweet spot.

Elmb is also perfect, no motion blur but lower brightness, its still bright enough but without Elmb and OD 80 it's already almost perfect in terms of blur so I prefer to play without elmb.

I only play valorant I think that in faster games elmb will have it advantages.

Is 240-280hz worth an upgrade from 144 hz I will say definitely yes its just much smoother so more fun to play, it is a must to upgrade to 240hz definitely not you can play perfectly fine on 144hz in terms of competitive play

I have to invest more time to test different settings but for now 280 hz with OD 80 seems fine.

What settings are you guys using?

Thx

Feel free to ask some questions

which 240hz monitor do you recommend for use dedicated exclusively to competitive fps?
thank you

P.S
TN or IPS doesn't matter, I'm looking for the fastest on the market today

I want to put one of these in the cart, can someone please tell me which of these is the best for exclusive use in competitive fps, always managing to stay around 240fps?
I'm only interested in low response time and input lag, nothing else

thank you so much

The best of the best is the Zowie XL2546S, a 240hz TN panel, but it's out of stock everywhere and (somehow) discontinued even though it was only released 3 months ago. It kills the competition if you can get your hands on one.

With 1ms latency, that would literally mean that the alienware aw2521hfl has 1ms input lag(although i've measured less on my oscilloscope)
It doesn't mean you got 1ms of input lag just because you guessed, that's not how it works..

guessing is the ONLY way to know how much latency the monitor is capable of getting.

My own personal human benchmarks are irrelevant. I was testing to see how much latency the monitor is capable of getting and the alien ware got me the lowest latency. This is no different than comparing CRT monitors vs LCD when it comes to input lag and comparing my results.
