BenQ Zowie XL2546 vs HP OMEN X 25F for Competitive Edge-CSGO

Already Fixed. The problem was on the input latencies and visual ghostings.

Two stores in my country have 25f and it's €414 in both of them so you're unlucky I guess (while 2546 here goes from €459).
If your store has it, you may want to consider 2540 too which should be even cheaper since you don't require blur reduction.

In terms of advantage in CSGO, you kind of answered your own question here:
HP OMEN x 25F, has the lowest input lag
UNLESS your eyes require blur reduction/other things that increase input lag, in order to see better (from your post I understand that you don't have those "issues").

Anyway, I haven't heard of 2546 having bad colors. Might have been just the streamer's specific settings, as gamers tend to crank up the saturation (I'm no exception, people ask me how I don't get blind from all that orange) or even specific colors to be more apparent.

the problem you are experiencing is not related to switching from crt to tn panel and no monitor will give you the advantage/ or fix the disadvantage you are talking about read this thread viewtopic.php?f=10&t=3536 and this one viewtopic.php?t=5409 i also have this issue being killed by mediocre at best players knowing they shouldnt be able to even touch me

After testing many monitors recently, I'm a strong believer that latency is subjective. There's way too many variables that can influence perception regardless of absolute numbers.

I personally enjoy gaming on a 144hz 2k monitor atm even though I have a 240hz monitor right next to it.. lol Is the 240hz faster? yes. But I kinda aim worse on it. :P
