XF252Q and XV253QX new monitor help

Post by felic » 18 Jan 2020, 09:50

So im buying new monitor soon and im a bit confused about XF252Q versions?

Model Name: Nitro XF252Q
Part Number: UM.KX2EE.X01

and

Model Name: XF252Q Xbmiiprzx
Part Number: UM.KX2AA.X01

are these exactly the same monitor or? the only shop for me sells UM.KX2EE.X01 version.

also just saw XV253QX 240hz ips for 369€ coming next month. theres no mention on gtg. its even a bit cheaper than XF252Q 385,46€.

ips sounds nice but concerned about smoothness, input lag,delay etc.

what you think guys? help me : D

Well IPS will never be as smooth as TN in my opinion so if you want the absolute best motion handling, I'd still stick with TN.

The different part numbers will probably be minor things like the type of plug it has...for example i have the UM.KX2EE.X01 and it comes with UK and EU power cord. AA version might be just for USA etc

If you're OK with 27" then the ViewSonic XG270 seems to be very well received. It's IPS 240Hz and apparently it's as good as the best TNs when it comes to motion clarity.

Let's not spread misconceptions. In terms of motion clarity ViewSonic XG270 is as good as previous generation of best TNs panels, but blurry than the current generation.

Get ViewSonic XG270 if you want to enjoy beautiful colors and low motion blur. Get XF252Q if you want to be the best in competitive games, it will allow you to see even less motion blur at the cost of less colorful image.

Yup. Thanks for sparing me the time of having to point that out. Comparing the new IPS panels to the older gen TN ones is only painting half a picture.

OP, if I’m not mistaken, the XN253QX is actually better than the XF (overdrive when you dip below 240Hz? IIRC), but it’s a lot more expensive due to having the g-sync module, so yeah...

Either way, TN monitors calibrate well and the colors actually do look good, minus the viewing angles, so I don’t think that going for TN equals compromising for worse colors when gaming, per se.

availability for XF252Q is really bad for me the only place selling is not even in my country. asked around if some shops would be getting this and 1 shop said probably in spring.

availability for XN253QX is good, might be leaning toward this could get it with monthly payments : D

theres also Acer Nitro XF272X i guess this is 27" version of XF252Q? just not sure about the size if its too big for 1080p.
