Is the Acer Predator XB241H the only 24" Gsync 1080p monitor on the market?

Is the Acer Predator XB241H the only 24" Gsync 1080p monitor on the market? (heck I would get a newer 27" 1080p Gsync one if they existed)

I ask because I am currently running a 23" 1080p 60hz panel from 2010 and I am looking to upgrade.

I don't see myself buying a 1440p monitor since I usually only upgrade my videocard every 2 years and I prefer maxing out the graphics vs super high resolutions.

So, is the Is the Acer Predator XB241H the monitor for me? If not what other monitors should I look at?

I really want Gsync (I owned 1 AMD videocard in the last 6 years and 3 Nvidia cards) and I would love to have a nicer monitor than what I have now.

What do you guys suggest?

The problem with those monitors is that they are first gen Gsync monitors from 2014. I want something more recent.

XB241H just came out. Got one from Amazon and it had a dead pixel and bad backlight uniformity. I'm going to return it and probably try another one.

Yeah the XB241H is the newest and best bet to go with if you're looking for a 24" 144hz 1080p Gsync monitor. I had 2, i'm currently using the second one and its actually using a worse panel than the first one i had. First one had higher contrast ratio by about 50 when calibrated and the colors were far more accurate. Its a big enough difference that leads me to believe they're using more than one panel for these monitors as i do not think there would be this big of a difference between two monitors unless of course there are defects.

I also feel as though this one im on right now has worse viewing angles than the last one as well. Don't let that deter you from getting one as this is definitely the best one to get since its the newest and therefore has an hdmi port on top of the display port, and it can overclock to 180hz which may or may not be noticeable, to me it really wasn't compared to 144z. I won't be keeping mine though as i've bought the MG278Q while its on sale. I paid about $362 for this acer, and the MG278Q was $417 after tax/shipping so about $55 for a bigger monitor, 1440p, higher pixel density, and a better 8 bit panel was worth that bit of money.

It doesn't have G-sync, but it does have freesync, and with new GPUs around the corner i'm almost guaranteed to upgrade to AMD if they can at least muster something close to the 1070 with Polaris 10 biggrin.gif

Looks like the PG248Q is a new competitor for the XB241H. Good thing I didnt pull the trigger yet on the XB241H. My friend should be getting his today though.

Competition is always good, I wonder how much Asus will want for the PG248Q.

I've been close to pulling the trigger on the XB241H, but wanted to wait for Computex before doing so... glad I did. The PG258Q seems to be worth waiting for, if the 240hz native claim is true. Hopefully the colors are decent.

The 180hz oc'ed one will probably be around $400 to match the XB241H. I'd guess the 240hz one will probably be $100-200 more. Looking forward to reviews.

Luckily I'm able to return my XB241H still (has a dead pixel and bad backlighting anyway). Good to timing.
