I don't know how to go above 180Hz. I'm not sure I want to risk my investment though. I mean, I am hoping to keep this for many years (if I like it).

 

I have been awake for about 18 hours, so I don't know if I'll get around to testing those games today, but when I do, what kind of tests would I need to do?

 

I only have Unreal I, II, and Quake 4.

Do you have artifacts at 180Hz like many have?

Well I do have one thing I can complain about right away:

 

In darker areas of games, I can see a grid pattern with like, 1-inch squares. The Acer XB241H didn't have that. I can't unsee it either.

 

Finding a monitor I can live with is proving to be difficult.

 

The backlight uniformity is much better than the XB241H, but still bad.

What would I notice at 180Hz? Can you help me test?

The mesh/grid pattern problem gets worse with overclocking the refresh rate. At 120Hz, it's almost not noticeable. At 144Hz, I can notice it when I'm thinking about it. The higher I go above that, the more difficult it is to ignore it.

 

Edit: This leads me to believe that the native refresh rate of the panel in the PG248Q is 120Hz.

 

Don't get me wrong, I think the ASUS PG248Q is much better than the Acer XB241H. I am happier with everything, except for this mesh/grid problem and I think I might be able to live with it. I have until September 19th to make up my mind.

Its not really wise to buy this monitor, when the Dell 1440p will come out soon too.

This Asus has the old 144hz panel, only overclocked to 180hz (like you can overclock the Korean one to around 200Hz). The problem with this panel is - the higher the clock speed, the more washed out the image becomes. Also Dell will most likely be a native 8-bit panel vs the old 6-bit panel with dithering.

Id recommend getting the 23.8" 1440p Dell over this Asus for any and all scenarios. It only has 15Hz slower refresh rate, which wont even be noticable but everything else is superior on the Dell.

If you really need as high refresh rate as possible, then it makes more sense to wait for the new 25" Asus @ 240Hz. It will be a completely new panel. Again the panel of this Asus here is the stone age old 144hz panel, which is 4-5 years old already.

Some of us don't have a powerful enough rig to play at 2560 x 1440p though. 1080p is the limit for some of us.

 

1080p is also reported to look bad on 27" monitors (as a native resolution), so for those of us who care about that we have to stick with 24" monitors.

 

When you prefer G-SYNC, your choices are even more limited (and crappier). I mean, how many 24" 1080p high refresh rate G-SYNC monitors are there?

 

If I had a rig that could play games at 1440p without much trouble (like framerates that never drop below the 50s), then I wouldn't have bothered looking at any 1080p monitors.

They're just raging because they try to keep their monitors in front of their face. 1080p looks just fine on my 27" monitor. Just have to sit more than 3 feet away from it. People claim "omg the pixels are gigantic, you can see them", and then you find out they have their monitors right next to their keyboards. No wonder they can see the pixels. I can only see them if my face is too close to the screen. And if I'm that close, I can see them on a 24" 1080p monitor also. (I have a XL2720Z and I had two VG248QE's also).

I intentionally got a 27" 1080p monitor instead of another 24" 1080p when I chose to upgrade from a VG248QE because I didn't want to have to deal with the gamma degradation and sometimes color degradation that occurs at higher refresh rates on the M240HW01 TN monitors. And if I could go back in time, I'd get the exact same monitor all over again. 0 dead pixels, good uniformity, no backlight bleed.
