Best unstrobed 25-27 IPS monitor for competetive FPS

Post by RETO » 02 Feb 2023, 22:52

Hello guys Im looking for the best screens out there for PRO CS:GO/VALORANT player. I care about the eyes a lot, about possible eye strains (i spend a LOT of hours on PC, hence i suffer from this), so my thought was to find monitor that will perform good even without dyac(i find this technology rough for eyes). Since every post where XL2546k (and other benqs) is being mentioned, and blur images are posted, they're made with dyac ON i suppose?

Also, I probably want to omit the TN panels. I'm spending a lot of my time on no-gaming PC activitie, So i kinda want to combine two worlds, and find generally speaking solid screen, with good eye care (no PWM/dyac/others(?)), decent colors&angles, and with good response times. I would love to stick to this monitor for long time.

I know that there is no screen that is good at everything but I thought that IPS panels would be a good shot, maybe VG259QM or 2521h? I spend last 2 whole days thinking, but I still have no clue.

Re: Best FPS (IPS?) monitor / NO DYAC

From what i've read, for 24.5 inches, one of the good options, would be Dell S2522HG or Alienwares, but I have started to wonder on buying 27 incher. What are the fastest 27" QHD 240hz IPS screens out there?
acer nitro xv272uxbmii is the cheapest one i found on IPS pannel.

AW2524H is releasing in a few weeks, it is FHD 500Hz 24.5" IPS (no strobing).
Personnally I am more interested in PG248QP, which should release soon aswell, it is FHD 540Hz 24.1" TN (no strobing). Because it should have faster pixel transitions thanks to its E-TN panel (let's wait and see).

Already on the market you have a great all-round monitor which I haven't tested but theoretically does all what you're asking: PG27AQN
It is QHD 360Hz IPS (ultrafast IPS, apparently with pixel transitions similar to TN transitions from XL2566K from BenQ), doesn't have strobing.

There is also the new 240Hz OLED monitors, which I haven't tried. 27GR95QE-B and PG27AQDM. It's good for competitive gaming because pixel transitions are very fast (whereas for TN/IPS/VA monitors, they are never fast enough which results in ghosting/smearing). Drawbacks are: risk of burn-in, and possibly too dim of a screen for you. Personally, I am not considering those for competitive gaming because of the motion blur inherent to moving pixel response time (MPRT) which is 1000/240 = 4.17 ms (due to lack of strobing and relatively low Hz).

Optimum Tech has made great videos on 27GR95QE-B and PG27AQN.


P.S. : Regarding DyAc and eyestrain: I don't have eyestrain with strobing but I've read on these forums that someone with eyestrain could get rid of it by decreasing the DyAc pulse length: by adjusting the Persistence slider in BlurBuster's Strobe Utility.

Thank you for these interesting points. I researched on PG27AQN, and yeah it would be ideal choice for me, and 27 incher. However i wouldn't consider these 500hz monitors , since there is long way for me to get stable 500fps in not well optimized games like cs go or even valorant. Either way, my budget was way too small for these high-end monitors, ended up buying AW2521HF, since I found cheap offer for used screen with long warranty, and I also read its pretty good without strobing compared to the others

However i was considering 2 monitors till the end, this one (or dell s2522 cause its basically the same) and the 27 incher about which i didn't find almost any informations and its by far the cheapest 240hz QHD screen in Poland. Acer Nitro XV272UX. Would love to hear any opinions on this screen cause its price shocked me compared to 27 alienwares etc.
