Nice! Could you take a photo of it?

Do you guys think its worth ordering then XL2546 to compare it to the Acer XN253QX. I like this monitor but I am not overwhelmed by it. Many friends of me told me that they love the XL2546 and the DyAC is a killer feature.

No. I have been using XL2546 for a year and had used XN253QP for 1 month. XN253QP blew my XL2546 out of the water in all aspects. The only aspect where XL2546 wins is that it is brighter with DyAc on, than XN253QP with ULMB on. But that aspect is diminished by the fact that XN253QP @144 Hz with ULMB off is smoother (and brighter) than XL2546 @ 240 Hz with DyAc on.

I play a ton of FPS(Halo on PC) I've never tried ULMB before but I see that's what you prefer to play on. I'm ordering the XN253QX today; would you be able to send me a link of how to set up ULMB properly or maybe send me your discord BlurBoss? I'd greatly appreciate it.

Forgot to add, there's only a $50 difference between the QP & QX for me, should I just go with the QX?

I'm not sure which one is better and I don't have theoretical knowledge to answer this. But I'd be buying XN253QX for me next. To set it up best for you read and do this. viewtopic.php?t=3555 to do it quickly, cap FPS at 141 Hz, enable G-Sync and turn on ULMB only when gaming.

Hello there

I need to chose a screen for competitive multiplayer ONLY (mostly CS:GO), so I'm aiming for 240hz with low input lag.

Should I go for XL2540 or XL2546, or is there new panels that are more interesting still with 240hz and low input lag?

Thanks yall
