Oh really? I'm in the midst of building a new PC and am pretty eager. When are they due to release? They will probably be over my budget anyway.

XB241H is best 24" 1080p Gsync display: http://www.overclock.net/t/1597127/acer-predator-xb241h-gsync#post_25264849

The 240hz displays that are coming are "interesting" but i doubt the difference will be huge between 144hz and 240hz, hell i cant even discern the difference between 144 and 180. Interest in the 240hz monitors will be entirely lost when they show them to be priced at $600+ most likely because 240hz! Gamer! Yeah! rolleyes.gif

At that price, forget about them. You can get a 2560 x 1440 144 Hz G-SYNC/ULMB monitor for that price.

I have used the 24 inch benq. It is pricey but excellent.

Yeah, they will definitely be out of my price range.

I have read one of your posts in another thread regarding the XB241H and it doesn't really seem all that positive?

Are there any problems regarding this monitor, perhaps compared to the Viewsonic? Does the Viewsonic have better overall image and colour? Were there any advantages the Viewsonic XG2401 had over the Acer XB241H? Because going by this review: https://pcmonitors.info/reviews/viewsonic-xg2401/, it seems as though the Viewsonic is a pretty ideal monitor.

If the Acer XB241H is on par in regards to its gaming AND image and colour quality/accuracy and gamma, etc. then I may highly consider it.

I was so close to buying the Viewsonic, until I stumbled across the XB241H…now I’m stuck trying to decide between the two. The reasoning behind this is because although the XB241H is $100 more, IF it were on par with the Viewsonic, then I am more than happy to spend that little bit extra so that I can utilise G-Sync.

If the Viewsonic is better than the XB241H, then I will still side with the Viewsonic and consider the Freesync as an added bonus.

I had the Viewsonic and it was really bad, like it was nothing like the review unit that Tomshardware had, i also had a few XB241Hs and there was one that was just as bad as the viewsonic, but the others were great just like the calibration results show in my post. There appears to be a really big divide in how good of a panel you can get, i'm not sure what are the chances of getting the worse one is, but the only way to really find out is to get a colorimeter yourself and test it. If its a good one similar to my results then its a keeper, otherwise return/exchange it.

Perhaps the bad ones i had were anomalies, but again i cannot say for sure. This is still just a TN monitor we're talking about here, so dont expect amazing picture quality out of it in any regard, its all about the speed with TN.

qwertymac93 had a Viewsonic which was similar to the review sites, so we know both bad and good consumer units exist. I bought an Asus MG248Q which is pretty much as bad as the VG248QE (low gamm and <700:1 contrast) aside from being PWM free and sporting a larger color gamut, but I expect the MG248Q Asus sent TFT Central to be significantly better like the PG278Q they received was compared to consumer units.

Hmmm, I'm really considering the XB241H in that case.

To be honest, I'm not very knowledgeable when it comes to all this stuff - I haven't owned my own PC in 5 years even! I have no idea what a colorimeter is (though I can easily assume), nor do I understand most of the reviews for monitors, and the terms used. But the reason why I'm being so cautious before pulling the trigger is because I want to try and purchase the best possible monitor I can for the money that I am willing to spend, hoping that the monitor will last me.

I don't exactly understand those calibration results, so I'm just wondering what they are like compared to the Viewsonic reviews? Essentially, i'm putting aside 'G-Sync' and 'Freesync' features and considering them as an added bonus, even if I aim to use a GTX 1070 for my new PC.

Only thing is you need a bit of luck because i had to return the first one because it had a fade whithe horizontal line in the middle of the screen. This could happen to all monitors.

Iv'e got the same monitor but Freesync version. Good cheap monitor for what it does plus 144hz is amazing

So, should I get the Acer XB241H? Or is the Viewsonic better?
