Im torn between the XG2402 and the Acer XF252Q i only play games that can get 140 fps stable like PUBG, Apex Legends and Quake Champions.
Is there a difference between the XG2402 and the Acer XF252Q @ 150 fps? About the same or is the Acer XF252Q still better?

I dont have myself a good camera to take a shoot of it, but i'll tell you how this looks like.

on XF252Q on FreeSync (with G-Sync Compatible enabled) ghosting ufo looks the best along all monitors i have tested (240hz) (without VRB)

but if you turn on VRB (strobing) it doesnt look so good anymore. I just don't recommend using it at all, no matter which overdrive you set, there is a corona around the ufo, pretty unnatural and looks actually bad.

Do you have inversion artifacts on this one? They manifest like vertical scanlines when you focus on slowly moving objects.

Like if I look on the grey bar in this test - https://www.testufo.com/inversion#patte ... bars&ppf=1 - I can see vertical lines and these manifest here and there - and annoy to no end.

Hello, guys. I'm looking to buy this monitor. Can you please tell, does it support custom refresh rate via CRU (custom resolution utility)?

Hey so if i play all sorts of games like comp, story, racing, mmo. On comp ill run low settings but everything else will be like high settings.. ill have a 9900k/kf and 2070super.. should i still get a 240hz vs 144hz? Whats bad about running 100-144fps on 240hz monitors? What about using g sync compatible on those low fps games?

Is the alienware AW2518HF really that bad? I swear people say the input lag is pretty good. Im really new to learning about monitors and im struggling to figure this out for my new build i got till the end of the month.
