What 1080p144hz monitor would you recommend?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

After having run 1080p60hz for a couple years now, i want to go a step higher in terms of hz. However, my system (3600x + 1660Super) is not quite ready for 1440p144hz.

 

A lot of people told me not to buy a 27inch 1080p, so I ended up looking for a 1080p144hz monitor at 24". However this was more difficult than i thought, with most monitors that I found having mixed reviews. The market for for 1080p144hz wasnt as big as i thought it would be, especially at 24". 

 

What monitor would you guys recommend?

ASUS VG249Q - 1080p 24", 144Hz, IPS.

1080p at 27" would indeed not be ideal, because of the lower pixel density.

Ah okay.

 

The store I am looking at gives me 4 different options. Which is the best model?

The VG24VQ uses a VA panel, the VG259QM is 240Hz+ and the VG245H uses a TN panel.

I'd get the VG249Q - the difference between 144Hz and 240Hz really isn't that noteworthy to warrant the extra cost.

How noteworthy is the difference between ips and va? I found an asus monitor for around the same price called "VP24QGR". Otherwise that VG24VQ also looks good. Thanks anyway

VA tends to have better contrast, while IPS tends to have better colour reproduction (this isn't always the case, of course, since you could have good VA panels or bad VA panels, good IPS panels, so on and so forth).

I personally prefer IPS, but if you don't do any photo or video editing or anything of that sort, then a VA panel should do just fine.

The intention is for gaming. So VA should suffice in that case, thanks.

It’s a shame to see misinformation around. 
 

240Hz is night & day difference compared with 144Hz. 
 

In fact, Nvidia collected data and shows that people on 240Hz compared to 144Hz had a 34% improvement in performance. 
 

LTT has done a few vids now where 240Hz always plays better for the player. 
 

Finally, myself & many people who have made the jump to 240Hz find it jarring to drop down, just like the jump down from 144 to 60 would be. 
 

Also,

 

Blurbusters has done an excellent article of the benefits of 1000Hz and beyond. 
 

All in all, 240Hz isn’t some marginal difference like a lot of people like to say.

I'm using a 240Hz monitor too, and I can change between 144Hz and 240Hz without taking a noticeable hit in how I perform in games. Sure the difference is slightly noticeable at first, but after a minute I totally forget about it.

 

240Hz won't magically make you some god in CS:GO or whatever, and unless you're an actual pro, you don't need those ~2.8ms of extra frames on screen. 1440p 144Hz definitely makes a lot more sense as a purchase instead of 1080p 240Hz for most people.

My friend recently got the AOC 24G2U, and so far he's really enjoyed it. :) When we compared monitors, we also found the ASUS mentioned above, which, according to a comparison review was quite good, but the AOC was said to be better, so we got that one. :P

What monitor would you guys recommend?

 

for OP, the only 3 monitors i'd recommend if you had all choices are pixio px247 budget, and AOC 24G2 for better colors; for 240hz, go with the LG 27GN750-B.

 

Theres no need to buy TN panels atm.

What about the LG 27GL650F UltraGear. What are your thoughts on that one.

thats a 144hz 27inch, might as well go with the AOC 24G2, smaller pixels, better colors. The only reason i recommended that 27inch model from LG was because of 240hz ips.

That’s great it’s hardly noticeable for you, others are more sensitive & can tell the difference more clearly, it all comes back to people who see 480p & 1080p - who say it “looks the same” or 1080p & 4K and say “what’s the difference”. 
 

I can immediately tell the drop in 100FPS, the smoothness, input lag & motion clarity is definitely evident.

Never said it would however anyone who plays online at a decent level in any game will benefit from 240Hz. Again, reference performance increase in research & reviews of people on 240Hz.
 

Even Pro’s gaining extra performance is a big deal because they’re already supposed to be “at the top” of the skill curve. 
 

You don’t need a lot of things, you don’t need 144Hz, 120Hz is fine, you don’t need 120Hz, 100Hz is fine, you don’t even need more than 75Hz ...

 

Simply put, a 37% difference is huge from 144 > 240Hz. 
 

That’s the main point, not whether 1440p 144Hz is better for someone than 1080p 240Hz. 
 

In fact, 1440p 240Hz is the best if you want & can drive the best, although this is only going to be for a small minority of people, like myself. 
 

I agree the OP is best going for 1080p 144Hz, but my point was, people just disregard 240Hz as a minor thing but I certainly wouldn’t want to downgrade to 144Hz for any reason tbh - there isn’t a valid reason why in my case!

 

Bring on the 360Hz panels in November 😄

I just recently scrounged the internet to find one myself. I recently-ish purchased the Asus TUF VG259q. It's 1080p IPS 144hz and its got Gsync. $250 bucks on Amazon. Its great.
