I am a strictly peripheral CS:GO player (stare-at-crosshair-only aiming technique) and thus I have very little interest in strobing (because it basically only helps in eye tracking situations and I don't do eye tracking in competitive play), so I did not test strobing modes extensively. I shared my opinion about VG259QM's ELMB here. If I HAD to choose, I'd always choose Zowie's DyAc, even though it seemed less clear than ELMB, because the brightness impact kills ELMB for me in practice. In addition to that, I did not test ELMB on 240 Hz on the ASUS, and I did not really test MBR on the MSI, it's way too dark for me to use it anyway.
I'm glad to share 3.84 KD is INSANE (I did it on pistols-only-headshot-only server, part of my practice routine), not only good Everything starting from 2.0 KD in CS:GO is good, and from 3.0 is superb, especially on harder servers, like "WarmupServer" line, I see pros playing there as well.Max_hz wrote: ↑05 Oct 2020, 04:14Thanks for your feedback, the Omen is indeed a good and fast monitor and if it hadn't been for pixel inversion artifacts I would have kept it. The Omen is slightly faster than the Asus but negligible in my opinion and I couldn't feel the difference in game.
The UFO Ghosting Test is certainly valuable and useful for comparing monitors and settings but it is not always comparable to the experience you get in the game in my case CS:GO.
The "vertical lines" spoil the clear view during movements and in this way negate the advantage of 240hz.
With the Asus I have no problems with this at all (they just aren't there) and if you take the other advantages such as IPS, ergonomics, ELMB (sync), possibility of overclocking then the choice between the two is not that difficult.
A kd of 3.84 as you say is very good and also indicates that the monitor meets the expected performance, having said that I can well imagine that you will eventually choose the 360hz version if you want to accept the price difference, I personally think it's quite big.
I wonder what your choice will be after testing the XL2546K and the PG259QN, in the end they are all good monitors that will make the choice a bit more difficult.
As for my final choice, I am also curious if performance improvement will justify the high price of PG259QN for me. I still don't know when this monitor will be available in my country, but I should get my hands on XL2546K this month. I will very likely share my experiences!
