Shopping Guide ps4 pro Monitor for FPS games

Hi Guys,
Please excuse my bad english ...
I need tips and a buying guide for a monitor for the Playstation 4 pro, i play Call of duty bo4 Blackout.
I own an Asus vg248qe and a Samsung s27e330.
The Asus is pretty good but I think it can Go netter with less tearing and less input lag. Besides, he should be 27 ".

Am between the two BenQ zowie models.
Which one would you recommend to me? BenQ zowie xl2720 with BenQ Tool? Or the BenQ zowie rl2755 which is special for the ps4?

Or is there a way tearing at my Asus to minimize even more, perhaps through a tool?
Others questions:

1. Question: Monitors come with different preset image modes, ie theater mode, cinema mode, gaming mode, etc. - Here's my question, it makes a difference from the MS / Inputlag whether I am in cinema mode or in gaming mode and otherwise the settings are the same leave?

2. Question: Do monitors with more MHz always have the advantages of smoother / faster picture display, even with the PS4 Pro which can only output 60 Hz? Or is this not true?

3rd question: A speed difference between 27 "FHD and 24" FHD eg. is this possible with the same monitor? Say the bigger the slower? or is this just the ppi different and the speed remains the same?

Thanks in advance.

Greeting St.dan

Thanks.

Which single Strobe Monitor for the Playstation 4 pro is at 60hz the best? Less Blur and inputlag?

BenQ zowie xl2720 - 419€ - my Price: 339€
BenQ zowie xl2430 - 339€ - my Price: 274€
BenQ zowie xl2411p - 239,99€ - my Price: 194€

Are the difference from the xl2430 to the 2411p the 80€ worth it?
Switch and color vibrance?

I don't know the answer, but I'd like to point out that unless the games you play run at a solid 60FPS, 60Hz strobing is not going to work very well.

Mmh, but the tearing on the the BenQ with Blurreduction on and with the Strobe Tool would be better than on another 144hz mon without the Strobe Tool Like the Asus vg248qe?

I thought PS4 games (and console games in general) almost always run with vsync so there's never any tearing? Also, even in games that run vsync OFF, you can't use 120Hz or 144Hz on the PS4. It always puts the display in 60Hz mode. So tearing will look the same in all monitors.

For 60FPS games however, 60Hz strobing will work just fine.

There can be latency differences of the various modes. Sometimes yes, sometimes not. Depends on display.

When all things are equal (same panel quality, same pixel response speed) -- it actually looks no different.
30fps at 120Hz looks the same as 30fps at 60Hz.

You need to double framerate to halve motion blur. Motion blur is directly proportional to framerate, where 1ms of frametime translates to 1 pixel of motion blurring per 1000 pixels/second.

If you want to reduce motion blur, try a motion blur reduction mode using a strobe backlight mode. Among desktop gaming monitors, the best one for 60Hz consoles is the Benq XL2411P, as it supports Blur Busters Strobe Utility. You adjust via a PC first, then move or switch the monitor to your console.
