Any Good 144Hz Panels for Gaming AND Video Editing?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Most of the 144 Hz panels I see are marketed towards gamers, which makes sense of course but I'll often times see reviews where they also mention things like poor color accuracy. I don't actually know all that much about monitors themselves but as someone who video edits, I do pay attention to things like the levels and saturation for precise tuning. Are there any good 144 Hz panels that would also be good to edit with, hopefully one that doesn't break the bank?

Should I just go with a cheap 144Hz panel and get a separate monitor for video editing instead?

There are a few 144+ Hz IPS monitors like the MG279Q, but they are expensive. For cheaper options a VA panel like the C24FG73 are also pretty good, but they mostly all from Samsung, and they are really into curved monitors right now.

Thanks for the response. I looked up both monitors. MG279Q will definitely be a consideration for me but that C24FG73 also looks really interesting. Do you by chance know whether curved would be noticeably worse for editing or not?

I have no idea unfortunately, I've never used a curved monitor personally.

Okay, well thanks for your help anyway. :)

Depends on how curve the monitor is. There is actually curve standard. I have seen one personally but only for movie watching and did not get that immersed experience that are commonly advertised. Unless it is cheaper I would consider it else curved are kinda waste unless you got hella cash.

Don't treat them as equivalent options, one is $200 more expensive. You don't have to get the PG279Q just because you have an NVIDIA card.

Just get a cheap IPS or AHVA 144 hz monitor, like Linus reviewed a $300 one not too long ago 1440p too.
