It has 10-15ms input lag but the test was conducted when it was on the 60hz setting, still that seems like a drastic difference, most gaming panels at 144hz get 2-5ms input lag so I doubt the Benq would be that low on 144hz, probably would be in the 8-9ms range on 144hz.

This is the best most superior 1080p TN panel I have found, it has the best contrast of any TN panel listed here but it only has 1 display port input so it might be difficult if you try to play console games on it since DP 1.2-HDMI converters might not work with PS4 and Xbox One.

Quite sure the that there are not 27" versions of the G2460PG and XL2420G. There's always the XL2720Z, but that monitor doesn't have g-sync. If I were you, i would just get something without g-sync right now. You're paying quite a hefty premium just for the G-sync feature, and IMO it doesn't make that much of a difference. I actually think it would be a better thing to have in a 4K or 3440x1440p ultrawide display, as you would very likely get noticeable framedrops with such monitors. If you have something like a GTX 1070, 144 FPS would not be a problem to achieve in most games that it would be useful in.

I would look at the LG 24GM77. Supposed to be a really good TN-panel. Either that or the Philips you mentioned

What about the ASUS VG VG248QE? I know the contrast ratio isn't as good on it 1002:1 compared to 1112:1 on the LG but it has built in speakers so it probably has an audio port. I also may wanna play console games on it and I hook up my Corsair SP2500 through an audiot port (currently do that on my Sony w800b tv) so I can have sound from my speakers instead of the TV/monitor.

Would it work doing that on the ASUS? My issue with hooking it up to my console is I heard the corsairs sound quality isn't good compared to when it is hooked in my computer (sound blaster cinema) or through an audio port on a tv/monitor (would be high def or nvidia high def audio) when hooked up to a TV or monitor.

The VG248QE is a decent monitor. Should actually be quite a safe choice considering how long it's been on the market.I have no idea if it has an audio port. A simple google search will tell you. I used to play on my PS4 before using a monitor, and I just hooked it up through the controller. My monitor does also have a audio Port, so I tried that too. No difference tbh. But that was using a HyperX Cloud 2. Now I play on a TV using the TV speakers.

Jesus Christ. Got the LG 29UC97C-b today. Very, very impressed. Almost no BLB at all, very good uniformity and no dead pixels etc. The color and contrast are just stunning. And the build quality is miles ahead of anything else I've had. The 21:9 aspect ratio is AWESOME in games that support it. Multitasking is also great, as I'm able to have two identical sized windows/programs open at one time, and it doesn't feel small as the screen is so wide.

I know this is very off-topic, but I just had to get it out there. Also bought myself a Spyder 5 Pro for calibration as it was on sale at Amazon.de.

Here are some pictures as well.

Hey,

I found this thread while researching on the Acer XB241H and the AOC G2460PG. Those are the ones I'm deciding between. I were more leaning towards the Acer, also because they have a cashback right now and I could get it for 50€ less than the AOC. But after reading maxvons opinions on them I'm not sure anymore if the 50 more aren't worth it.

Does someone else have first hand experience with both displays and can confirm the AOC has a superior image quality and the BLB is less?

Cheers

They both use the same panel, get the Acer, its newer and has hdmi while the AOC does not. You either get lucky or you don't, and that can be said for any display really.

Thanks, I'll get the Acer and just see if the panel is fine. If not it goes back.

Are there any tools or such to test a monitor for backlight bleed and dead/stuck pixels? Or what's the best was to do that?

BLB, just throw up a black image and stand a few meters away from the monitor. Dead/stuck pixels, there are websites. Just type in "dead pixel test", and click the first link. I think the Acer could be made to look similar to the AOC. Just seems like the AOC had a better default calibration. I would just get the cheaper one of the two unless you need HDMI.

Neither my Acer or AOC had any BLB issues.

And you have to keep in mind that my opinions are strongly affected by my preference for IPS-quality color and contrast. Ive found out that TN-displays are just a no-go for me. At least 144Hz ones. But the Acer was definitely one of the better 144Hz panels that I tried. And I went through 5 different ones. Just use Malinkadinks settings with it, and youll be fine. And also check for stuck dust particles if you care about that.

The Acer XB241H has been sent back to me today and the contact at Acer repair said they exchanged the panel. That has taken them about 1 month to figure out/accept as the right thing to do and me sending the monitor to them 3 times. Well, we will see if this will have actually solved the problem...

I have really learned to value the on-site exchange service for monitors that my Eizo FG2421 has with such a thing. The Eizo has green pixel/subpixel flicker on static images (meaning desktop) when its Turbo 240 mode (kind of like ULMB but with a lot less loss of brightness) is activated, and neither me nor Eizo Europe knew that this was a general product flaw (Eizo Japan confirmed that later) and I had RMAed my FG2421 and Eizo exchanged the monitor with a new one and took mine.
If Acer also had on-site exchange service, I would have gotten a fully functioning monitor about 1 month ago.

Sounds like a horrible experience. You can only hope that it's fixed now, but you never know
