I would like to know this too! Really torn between the XG2401 and 24GM77.

Its the XG2401 no question, has freesync in case you have an AMD card or may get one at some point. Having some VRR is better than no VRR so the LG is out. MG248Q was reviewed and was reported to be using an awful TN panel.

Nixeus offers the widest freesync range of 30-144hz, but the Viewsonic is 48-144hz and still benefits from LFC frame doubling, and if you're using a 144hz monitor you ought to be crucified for ever playing any games below 60fps so that makes Nixeus' advantage irrelevant as the Viewsonic still bests it in image quality.

TLDR: Get the XG2401!!!! biggrin.gif

Why no benQ? Just out of curiousity. I have the XL2411T and love it, but I'm in need of a new one, so before I blindly buy benq again, I'm curious about your opinion.

LG (144hz or 120hz back-light strobing) or Viewsonic (48-144hz AMD Free-Sync). They're to similar quality wise to pick a winner so it comes down to picking which feature one would rather have. The MG248Q has poor colors and contrast and the Nixeus has poor colors.

Because their new monitors aside from the overpriced XL2420G have terrible colors and contrast, and are filled with gaming gimmicks which ruin the image quality like Black Equalizer. Read the wecravegames thread linked above.

I heard from word of mouth the LG has the best color reproduction (for a TN panel) and lowest input latency of any 144hz 1080p monitor right now, I looked into it and from reading reviews it seems to be true. That and the price is right so that is why I have considered it even though it does not have freesync. BenQ has always seemed overpriced like Tuba (who I assume is NCX) said above.

You saying they're similar in quality makes me wonder. Is the LG really as good as I mentioned above or is that hogwash? There is no reason for me to even consider it then if they are similar quality.

I've seen pretty much every post you made about a bunch of different 144hz monitors over at r/monitors (assuming you are NCX).

I think the Nixeus is the best one for the money. It can be found for $250 and as low as $230 at times. Less if you opt for the one with the cheaper stand.

I've had many 144 Hz monitors. There's a really good panel Nixeus uses. Literally no backlight bleed.

No bleed
Best free-sync range
All the necessary inputs

Plus there's an active rep here on the forum just in case you need him.

I've been using mine for a few weeks and love it.

Recently I've used these 1080p 144hz panels in comparison.

Asus 248
BenQ 2411z
Acer 240 g-sync
Acer 241 g-sync

The 241 is solid and does 180 Hz out of the box. But it's not worth $100-150 more imo.

Thanks for the help everyone, I decided to go with the XG2401. Should arrive sometime this week.
