What's the best 24'' 1080p IPS gaming monitor?

Doing product searches I am having problems finding the best 24'' 1080p IPS (not TN) gaming monitor with zero flicker.  Also want it to go above 100hz at least and supporting G-sync is a huge plus.  I don't care about the price, just want the best.  Does anyone have suggestions here?

I guess it depends on your budget. What's the maximum you're willing to spend?

And what does gaming monitor mean to you? Do you want at least 120 Hz, do you care about color accuracy?

Do you have an nVidia card? Are you interested in a Gsync monitor (because that adds $100+ to the monitor price) ?

 

If you'd force me to buy a 24" monitor, I'd probably go with this one

 

Acer Professional Series B247W 24" Black IPS LED Monitor 1920 x 1200 Widescreen 16:10 4ms Response Time 300 cd/m2 1000:1 HDMI VGA DisplayPort USB Hub 3.0 Speakers : https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?reviews=all&Item=N82E16824011209

 

It's 1920x1200 (you'll appreciate the extra vertical height, but you can play games and watch movies at 1080p , has 75 Hz , very good color accuracy

 

Another monitor that looks interesting is this one : HP 27b 1AT04AA :  wallmart or  https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1346050-REG/hp_1at04aa_aba_27b_27_curved_display.html

 

It's VA not IPS... but you shouldn't care it's just as good as IPS when it comes to gaming.  It's 27" but curved, so the width is probably as much as regular 24" monitors, otherwise same 75 hz, freesync

Thanks for the links, Ill check them out.

 

 I want it to go above 100hz at least.  I want an IPS panel because I want the best colors/contrast/viewing angles.  And supporting G-sync is a huge plus.  Like I said, price does not matter to me, I want the best.

VA and IPS both have excellent viewing angles.

VA can have higher contrast (darker blacks) than IPS. IPS can have slightly higher color accuracy than VA but both are way better than TN.  It's like on a scale from 1 to 100, TN is at 60-70, VA is at 90 and IPS is at 95 when it comes to colors... the 5 point difference won't bother you in real life. 

Unless you need a pro monitor with color calibration it would be unlikely you'd notice the difference between VA and IPS when it comes to colors.

IPS panels can have a specific "glow" ... it's a side effect of the technology itself.

 

So basically what I'm trying to say is don't reject VA panels in gaming monitors especially since VA panels are slightly better than IPS when it comes to response times, so there's a higher chance you'd get 100+ Hz monitors with VA panels.

 

Gsync requires that manufacturers ADD a circuit board with a bunch of expensive chips inside the monitor and costs additonal licensing money, so it adds to the price... can't be avoided.

 

I feel you won't find something truly great at 24" - that resolution is becoming slowly a race to the bottom, for budget monitors. The innovation is happening at 27" and higher, and ultra wide (1440p) monitors, where they can also differentiate between models by adding HDR and 10bit and other things.

   

some other suggestions from cheaper to more expensive, mostly from what's available on Newegg  .. if I were to buy a new monitor I'd do more research looking on tech sites at monitor reviews and see if I like something, then search around for that specific model I like:

 

292$ 27" slightly curved, 1080p, 144 Hz, 8bit VA panel, Freesync, "standard" HD color (72% NTSC, perfectly fine for gaming, less great for photo editing, pro color stuff)

Acer ED273 Abidpx:  https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824011165

 

449$ 32" (31.5" viewable ) slightly curved, 2560x1440, 144 Hz, VA panel, Freesync, "better" HD color (85% NTSC, great for gaming, decent for artsy stuff), good pixel density (dpi)

AOC AGON AG322QCX 31.5": https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824160351

 

honorable mention:

 

280$ (amazon) : flat, 24" (23.5" viewable) QLED, 1080p 144Hz, VA panel, Freesync, flat, 

Samsung CFG7 Screen LED-Lit Monitor 23.5" (C24FG73FQN) : https://www.amazon.com/Samsung-Screen-LED-Lit-Monitor-C24FG73FQN/dp/B072KKV2TB

 

If you want Gsync, you're looking at 650$ or higher

 

650$ slightly curved , 2560x1440 VA 144 Hz (200Hz overclock), Gsync, 100% sRGB (~ 80-85% NTSC or thereabouts)

Acer Predator Z1 (Z301C Tbmiphzx) - https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIACVB8E29566
