Man. I wish I had a time machine. smile.gif
Good decision w/ the XB241, can't go wrong. A bit over a year ago I tried its predecessor, the XB240H and was very pleased. It is $299 right now at Best Buy, so $100 cheaper than the XB241. But looking at Acer's site looks like the height with stand is 21 inches.

Also I have used the AOC G2460PG and it was a great monitor for the price. PCMonitors website lists the height w/ stand as 15.55 inches which should work out for you. (I don't know how this is 15.5 inches yet Acer is 21 inches)

This damn hutch, haha. I know you need it, but your options are INSANELY limited given your budget and hutch dimensions. The Dell 27" S2716DG is $499 at Microcenter right now (you live 15 miles from one) and personally I think it is worth the splurge. I feel your pain on space constraints, good luck.

@TwoCables: The Acer website lists the XB241H as 542mm with stand, which is 21.3 inches. So this too may not work for you.

http://www.acer.com/ac/en/GB/content/predator-model/UM.FX1EE.001

Assuming this is really the case vs. random YouTube dude, that leaves you with the AOC as the only potential monitor, assuming that one really is only 15.5 inches w/ stand. I still don't see how it was that short, maybe it really is.

Otherwise, if you keep the hutch you cannot get a monitor given your constraints. End thread.

Thank you!

 

I learned with the XB241H that the reported height is with the monitor extended to its full height. The stand itself is 17 and 1/8" tall fully-assembled. :)

I'm having a hard time deciding now. lol I looked at this one several times too.

Yeah, I'm on a limited income so I may never be able to spend $500 all at once. Even $400 is cutting it close for me.

 

This hutch is definitely here to stay. It gives me extra desk space and relatively dust-free storage space that I desperately need.

Another review site also confirms the height of the AOC G2460PG w/ stand is 15.5 inches. Should be perfect!

FPS and Hz rate are not the same thing. Hz rate is the amount of times a panel refreshes per second. FPS is the current amount of frames rendered per second. You can run any FPS at any Hz rate. Higher Hz gives less tearing and better input latency levels. High FPS and high Hz combined gives even better results such as good motion clarity and so on. I can game at 30 fps on my 144Hz screen and it feels very smooth with no tearing. However with 60Hz, I need 60 fps or higher otherwise it just looks and feels poor to me. Too much tearing and too much lag. Once you go 144Hz, you'll never go back.

I guess you didn't see what I said.

 

Instead of going by what I said, let's look at this:

 

The person I asked said he had a maximum height requirement of 18" too and the monitor fits just fine. However, he still measured the stand from his desktop to the top of the stand and found it to be 17 1/8" tall. Also, the specs say that the height with the stand ranges from 15.40" to 21.40". Newegg has photos of the monitor with it at the 15.40" setting and you can see the top of the stand. Zooming in, it looks like we can see about 2" of the top of the stand.

 

The height of the panel itself is 13..22". So yeah, 15.40" is the lowest setting and 21.40" is the highest setting.

 

The AOC G2460PG shows 15.50" with the stand, but you can also see from the photos that it can definitely go higher than 15.50". So, I would bet that the panel is around 13.25" tall too just like the Acer.

 

So, both are an option for me fortunately! :)

Rest assured, I know that they're not the same thing. I never said that I think they are. In fact, no one in my thread is saying that they're the same thing. We all know this.

 

Anyway, thank you for everything else you said because it's reassuring me that I really am about to do the right thing here.

I didn't see that the Acer goes down to 15.4 inches for some dumb reason, I see now. Glad you have 2 options.

I probably have more than 2 options, but I suppose the less options I know about the easier my decision will be. Or something like that.

 

I keep leaning toward the 24" Predator XB1 though - like, a lot. The first time I laid my eyes on it, I felt very drawn to it. I wonder if it's meant to be.
