Thats way more than it is in the US, theres only a $50 difference here.

Well admittedly there's a 50€ cashback from Acer here atm. But still, it regularly costs 400 and the ASUS 500.

@Neon Lights, could you do a calibration at 144Hz and see if the results are different?

Sorry but I sent the XB241H back to Acer on Friday, I am trying to get a refund, that bad backlight distribution makes the image just too bad for me.

I have however, before I sent the monitor back, made a calibration at 120Hz (the previous one was at 180Hz), which I attached.

Gonna get the ASUS now I guess?

Your 120Hz profile works pretty well for me after a bit of fiddling with colours and saturation. Thanks.

No, gonna get one of the soon-to-be-released 24 inch (yes, they only have 24 inches) 2560x1440 165Hz TN G-Sync monitors from AOC: http://www.aocgaming.com/en/news/42-double-agon-24-inch-power-ag241qg-and-ag241qx or Dell (http://accessories.us.dell.com/sna/productdetail.aspx?c=us&cs=19&l=en&sku=210-AIZS), but probably not from Acer lol (http://watchmono.com/blog-entry-6067.html).

What does the article in that link say xD

Also good luck with those, I don't have a GPU able to run most games at 1440p consistently yet, especially not above 60fps so that'd be useless for me. Also I imagine they're gonna be too expensive for my likings as well, but let me know how it went.

The article has to be translated with browser translation.

They will be about 600€.

With max settings, I can not run the more graphically taxing games at 1440p with 165Hz either (GTX 1080), but at times these game's framerates actually go that high and when they are not then G-Sync helps, and here and there there are games that I am able to run at 165Hz (almost) all the time.

GTX 970 here so I don't even get 144FPS for more demanding games xD And depending on wether Volta comes out next year or not I'll get a 1070 at most so yeah 1440p at more than 144Hz would be well overkill for me, especially I'm more of a casual gamer by now. I think this one was the right choice for me personally and a lot of what I'm experiencing regarding colours and gamma setting has to do with not being used to a properly calibrated monitor xD The BLB is far less than my last one and I didn't even notice it on that one until I started researching for the new monitor and was reminded BLB is a thing biggrin.gif

Final results with your 120Hz profile and custom settings and bias lighting:





The backlight bleed again looks worse than it is in reality.
