New monitor suggestions? 144hz

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I'm thinking of buying a new monitor because the current one I have is to hard on my neck and burns my eyes after 20 minutes alot of other users also find the monitor hard on their eyes as well. I'm thinking of buying a ASUS VG248QE 144hz monitor since I play alot of games and would like to be able to play with v-sync on in most of my games since 60hz is far too low for any fps games without input lag. I would like to stay at my current resolution of 1920x1080 since 4k isn't mainstream yet and would be hard on my GPU since I play at 1080p 4k is also much more expensive for me at the moment. Here are the brands I have had trouble with in the past and would like to stay away from, Benq,Acer,Gateway and LG mad.gif. I'm also looking for a monitor that is 24 inches. Should I buy the Asus monitor or are there better 144hz led monitors out there? I would prefer to get a Samsung or Asus monitor although I am willing to try other brands if they are decent and have height adjustment options on the monitor like the Asus one.

best non gsync/freesync monitor that is 24" 1080p 144hz, really dont bother looking further than that model, provides the best in class picture for TN monitors in the 24" 1080p 144hz flavor.

I'm not sure if you're trolling but I listed LG as one of the brands I wasn't going to buy due to bad monitors in the past. Plus that monitor doesn't have the height adjustment option like the Asus one any other ideas guys?

Are you capable to even get 144hz on your current system?
What do you mean burn your eyes? They become dry?

A new monitor will be unlikely to fix that problem.
60Hz is not low for FPS with input lag. I play FPS and see no lag at 60fps.
I see you use wireless, and that will cause lag input.

That's a shame, cause LG easily has the best 24" 144hz monitor on the market, in fact LG makes a lot of good displays. You can have a bad experience with any brand, but you pretty much killed off any option aside from Asus, and Asus only offers the VG248QE, which i have had for a few years and recently got rid of it due to an upgrade. It was a fine monitor and got better when i calibrated it using my colorimeter as well as removed the horrid AG coating it was using.

I don't recommend buying one though because it uses PWM below 90% brightness so it has a flickering backlight and even if you dont notice the flickering it can make your eyes tired and since you're looking for a more eye friendly monitor the Asus is just out the question. It also has worse colors at 144hz unable to go any higher than 800-900:1 contrast ratio unless being used at 60hz. The LG always maintains a 1000:1 + contrast ratio and has very good colors for a 24" 144hz TN panel. Also the LG has height adjust, pivot, swivel, and tilt just like the Asus, and it doesnt use PWM so your eyes will thank you.

Read the review: http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/lg-24gm77-gaming-monitor,4082.html

And decide for yourself. But if i were buying a 24" 144hz monitor right now and didnt care about freesync or gsync that would be my pick hands down.

I've used dozens of other computer monitor brands and my current monitor a Benq is the only one that has ever gave me eye problems my eyes literally become bloodshot and sore after about only an hour and ache like there are knives in them. There are also other reviewers of the same monitor a Benqrl2455hm on New egg talking about the same thing something to do with the color temperature but if I try to adjust it the color looks terrible. There is also not alot of detailed calibration settings on the monitor as well which is disappointing. And also 60hz is terrible with v sync on in fps games I can see the input lag quite easily which is why I have never played with v sync on fps games until 120hz and 140hz monitors came out. I have a 120hz TV and can see the difference instantly on any fps game out there I want to get a monitor though because the TV is too big to sit in front of. I also have a wired mouse and the input lag is exactly the same I don't want the wireless mouse argument since it doesn't apply to the Logitech g602. Wireless mice are much different then they were even four years ago the input lag is almost unnoticeable now. I also don't play all the latest games that come out so 144hz should be just fine and if it isn't I can always upgrade my GPU in a few years. Can you guys just answer my question instead of giving your opinions on 120 to 140hz monitors. Here's also a good article on gaming mice myths: http://www.pcgamer.com/gaming-mouse-myths-busted/

I did answer your question, i told you the best 24" 144hz monitor you can buy and you're refusing the option because its LG and somehow they've burned you in the past.

http://wecravegamestoo.com/forums/monitor-reviews-discussion/15713-best-144hz-monitors.html

It's ranked #4! on a list of 144hz monitors that include AHVA (IPS-type) panels, it sits just under 3 1440p 144hz monitors that use the IPS like AHVA panels, it sits above all the other TN monitors period. I'm giving you the best possible choice available right now with the specs you're looking for. I don't want to sound nasty but you'd be foolish to choose a different monitor. The only reason to go with a different monitor is if gsync or freesync was necessary for you, but you didn't ask for those features in which case its the LG or nothing.

I just want to be sure I'm getting the right monitor because I bought this one two years ago and have had nothing but problems with it. I'll keep the Lg in mind then it seems they've changed alot since the last time I used one of their screens at least they're not Acer I've had so many dead pixels and dead screens from them. Also on a side note what happened to Samsung they used to have some of the best monitors are they out of the monitor business now? Edit: Also one minor question does the LG monitor only have HDMI inputs? Because regular HDMI doesn't support 144hz (You usually need a div-d or display port cable. Would that mean I would need an HDMI 1.3cable?

You get displayport, x2 HDMI, DVI-D, and VGA as well as a USB upstream port so you can use the two usb ports on the monitor.

Samsung still makes monitors but they're not making anything gaming oriented really.
