Recommend me a 120Hz Monitor with a TV Tuner

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

So I am in the market for a new Monitor with the preference of having an inbuilt TV tuner if at all possible but its not a MUST. It has to be capable of 120hz + 3D is optional. Looking for around the 23/24" size region and not too much larger due to space constraints. I have had a brief look but realised that it would be a good idea to get some hands on recommendations from you guys, I love to hear some suggestions and opinions. While I know some may suggest a HDTV, I am avoiding them as they are not true 120Hz with regards to gaming and Pixel density is poorer.


Summary of what I am looking for

Screen Size: 23/24" (Not too much Bigger)
Refresh rate: 120Hz+
3D: Would be good on HDMI rather than DVI
Tuner: Would be good (Not a Must)

Actually just saw this one : http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=MO-053-AS&groupid=17&catid=1851

Many Thanks thumb.gif

ASUS VG248QE is an amazing monitor. I have three in a surround set up and it is absolutely stunning what they can do with lightboost in games and web browsing (as long as your browser supports 120hz)

As far as a monitor with a built in TV tuner, I definitely haven't seen one, especially with a 120hz refresh rate.

Is there a specific reason why you would want it built into the monitor as opposed to a stand alone card that would have more features?

Thanks, I did see that one, Do you know if it supports 3D Vision through HDMI ? Some HDMI V1.4 Monitors do while some dont. I will simply drop the TV Tuner idea, it was just a luxury but not at all needed.

Most TV's that are 120hz won't take a 120hz input via hdmi. I know a few bigger TV's can do 120hz via HDMI if forced, but not sure if you can find a smaller screen to do so.

Probably would be better to get a TV Tuner Card.

As far as I know, no 120Hz gaming monitor includes a TV tuner. There was a discontinued Samsung T27A750D that internally did 120Hz, which had a tuner, and 3D, but it did not accept 120Hz via computer input.

Now, if the goal is to eliminate motion blur during sports television on a computer monitor, you should be aware that the BENQ Z-Series (XL2720Z, XL2420Z, XL2411Z) with Version 2 firmware, is capable of "60Hz LightBoost".

I was able to enable the 60Hz strobe mode (flickers like a 60Hz CRT), then move my monitor to a HDTV settop box / gaming console (PS4 & XB1), and see CRT-clarity 60fps. There is quite a bit of flicker, like a 60Hz CRT because of the 60Hz motion-blur-reduction strobing (which you can enable/disable). However, if you're looking for plasma/CRT clarity in television and gaming console, and you can tolerate 60Hz flicker, then this is an option.

Thanks guys,

Shame really as I am in a little bit of a battle, I want 120Hz plus for the Blur reduction and general gaming advantages it brings, but the IPS monitors have much better colours, alas they are generally limited to 60hz. Now I know there are some specialist IPS monitors out there capable of 120hz but finding them in stock is somewhat difficult.

There is always a Korean panel that allows you to OC it to 120hz, however those are limited to dual link dvi connection. Those are 1440p and 27 inches, though. Which is bigger than you wanted.

Yeah I did look into them and I can stretch to 27" but I think that I would rather not have to OC the monitor to get the desired results as there seems to be a few factors after doing a little research, I will more than likely go for a gaming monitor over IPS, as I will be looking directly at the monitor, I should not notice the reduction in viewing angle or colour quality as much as some reviews state.

If you're just using one monitor. You really can't go wrong with the Asus vg248qe. It has all the inputs you need and looks pretty good with an ICC profile.

Yeah looks like the route im going to go as it has the Required inputs and everything else im looking for, will check to see if thats the one with the adjustable height and angles. Thanks !
