Shopping for new 24" monitor

Just a quick point -

1080p=FHD=2k

1440p=QHD=2.5k

720p=HD

 

Now reading your post, I assume you mean 2.5k, which at 24 inch isn't really worth it, you'd be better off getting a 240hz monitor or IPS, as the increase isn't really noticeable unless you're pixel peaking (head pretty much touching the monitor).

 

If you are still after a 1440p monitor, https://pcpartpicker.com/products/monitor/#r=256001440&D=60000,240000&G=100000000000,4000000000000&A=1&F=584200000,635000000

 

I would recommend 1080p though.

I currently have an LG D2342 24" inch monitor. Last week I ordered a new PC to replace my old one, which has an RTX 2080 Super. As such, I am trying to find a suitable replacement monitor with more features to match my new build.

 

Now, the screen quality of the D2342 is good, I got it for the 3D at the time, but always noticed with fast movement there is screen tear, even with v-sync on. I play a lot of FPS games (mostly single player) 

 

As such, I want a new monitor that is smooth, has good colour depth and g-sync compatible (preferably g-sync ultimate).

 

I can only fit a 24" in my desk cabinet, which does restrict me unfortunately.

 

I have seen you can get 4k/UHD monitors at 24", but I am thinking this would be overkill. I'd want a step up from HD, so perhaps just 2K/QHD.

 

I have tried searching online, but any list tends to have only a few 24" ones, and if they do they tend to be 1080P /HD, which is what I already have.

Is there a good 24", QHD monitor with g-Sync for under £500 please? 

 

 

Any recommendations would be much appreciated, thank you

There is no real benefit from 1440p at 24" as the pixel density from 1080p is enough for this size. If you want a 24" monitor really the one to get is the AOC 24G2 (or AOC 24G2U/BK depending on your region. They are pretty much the same other than the name.). It has everything you could want from a 24" monitor and has great value.

 

Most of the important features:

- 1080p.

- 1440Hz.

- 24".

- FreeSync natively, G-Sync compatible

- IPS with wide Gamut support.

- Completely adjustable stand with tit, swivel, heigh adjustment, etc...

- VESA mount.

- Great input Lag.

- Best contrast performance of any no-local-dimming IPS monitor i know of.

- Price between 180-200$.

 

Also check the review from Hardware Unboxed on YouTube. He does a great job testing every bit of the monitor and explaining why it's such a no-brainer.

fyi freesync monitors work with gsync as long as you use a display port cable, just to give you more options, should be something on reddit about compatibility (most work without issue, some don't)
