XL2420Z or VG248QE or Wait for XL2420G

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I currently have a Asus VH238H and I like it but I want to upgrade to a dual monitor setup.

Currently I would like a VG248QE since it is cheap ($250) but I dont like how the Gysnc kit gets rid of the HDMI so I think I will pass on it. The XL2420Z looks like a decent deal for $360 on Amazon (hopefully it's revision 2) but I was curious what the price point would be on the Gsync BenQ coming out and if it would be worth waiting?

I currently play games like BF4, Titanfall, Dark Souls 2, ESO, Skyrim, ACIV.

Thanks

(Is the XL2420Z that big of an upgrade to warrant the extra money over the VG248QE?)

Wait for gsync/ulmb

the wave is this quarter

ulmb colors are better than lightboost hacked strobe, though i hear the z-series blur reduction strobing is quite good

Gsync models use Nvidia elettronics, not Benq.
New elettronic, new OSD, new functionality.

That's the case on modded VG248QE, but that's just replacing everything in it. That won't be the "official" gsync/ulmb implementation, as far as i know

I personally dont want to spend over $400 since I can upgrade my computer in other areas for that price.

Im not sure if the new Gsync monitors will be more than that or around that for a 24inch.

There will be a gsync/ULMB monitor to replace the VG248QE AFAIK, which as you've said can hang around $250. Lightboost hack is very soon to be obsolete for strobing. They might charge a premium, hell even a pretty big one, but i don't think we'll be paying $400 for 1080p.

But essentially the BenQ 2420z is $399 and it doesnt have Gsync. With the upcoming 2420g (w/ gsync) it has to be more than $400 since it includes their blur reduction (lightboost) AND Gsync instead of just Blur Reduction.

I was under the impression that all gsync monitors would have this (branded ULMB) or at least a majority of them

I figured since the BenQ now only has ULMB and no gsync for 400$, when they release their new monitors they would be more expensive since they will have gsync and ULMB
