I now have the 24" Acer Predator XB1 (XB241H)! - Page 5

post #41 of 64
I was thrilled for the S24 from dell, having a 1440p 25" has been fantastic because of the high PPI so when I saw 1440p gysnc 144hz 24" I was very happy. Until I realized its just as or even more expensive than the S27 from Dell, at least here. I'm probably going to stick with the AOC G2460 and save myself 200+ pounds difference for just a better luminescence uniformity.

If you lived at your computer like I do (spending every waking minute at it, except for when you're in the bathroom or out at the grocery store), every little detail like that makes a big difference. However, I'd rather spend $499.99 on the S2716DG than $569.99 on the S2417DG. lol

To be honest, I do. I work as an IT and I'm also a gamer and a movie fanatic. I spend about 10 hours a day in front of my PC. I just can't justify 200+ pounds for exactly the same technologies, we are talking about a TN 144hz Gsync monitor afterall. That's almost 50% increase in price for one, annoying but still small defect. I might just wait a little longer I guess, but this monitor market is pretty insane if you ask me.

I spend a lot more than 10 hours at a time at my computer. I literally wake up, wash up in the bathroom real quick, and then I sit down at the computer. When it comes time to eat, I eat at it. When I've had enough and I need sleep, I go to sleep. So this is literally where I live. :/ I spent $394.94 on this monitor and there's more than one thing about it that I don't want to live with. So, it's possible I will end up returning it and getting the S2716DG for $499.99 because it doesn't have these annoying problems that are bothering me. I see this as an investment.

I'd get new ones with new monitors too (from '94), that's why I said old school smile.gif Can't quite remember, but 95-98 and XP wouldn't stretch well and I guess that's why i didn't get bigger ones so I wouldn't have to get 1k+ wallpapers again. (I've still got 1280x1024 ones from '07)

For me, it was just kind of like, "Oh, I have a 1680x1050 resolution and so therefore I need the 1680x1050 wallpapers". It never occurred to me that I could use larger 16:10 wallpapers and just let Windows shrink them for more pixels per inch. It was purely just machine or robot logic for me.

That's my dream life, used to do that when I was a hardcore gamer : )

Jokes aside please do come back to us if you decide to switch to the S2716DG and give us some feedback, Personally I m a bit annoyed that we still can't get a cheap IPS 144hz, though I understand that the profit margins are already small for this market. And that's where consumer should step in imo, and instead of asking for bigger low quality monitors, they should ask for improved panels, 144hz+, higher static contrast and such.

Don't you find 1920x1080 a little too small for 2016? I have 1920x1200px and I always find 1080px way too small for reading and games too, and that's a 2014 or older monitor.
TN at 144Hz is nice for gaming but since you like colors, have you seen an IPS?

I can't help it but a minimum for a 2016 monitor for me would be 2560x1440px IPS or VA even at 24" only. Especially for the price xb241h sells for. Those predators are crazy expensive frown.gif

I'm glad you like your monitor, the 144Hz and clear reading must be very nice. I have had a TN 15.6" before, worked on many bigger TN monitors and the color shift and so on of TN is annoying once one sees that IPS and VA don't have any and the colors are miles better. It actually took a while for me to adjust to the crazy vividness of IPS compared to my older TN.

What do you do professionally if you don't mind me asking?


btw the 24" version of s2716dg is 165hz. 24" is a bit too small for me, but I do get the point of this monitor.

1. 27" TN supposedly has bigger color shift
2. at 24" 1440p you might wanna give up AA in some games, thus it makes it possible to use that additional 21fps/21Hz


Still, if I wanted a 24" display I would rather get that sick 240Hz panel with FullHD.
Dying Light should be able to pull +200 fps on FullHD with some of the details and draw distance lowered, and the experience of +200 frames/+200Hz must be overwhelming

You are no mere mortal, sir. You have identified yourself to the Pantheon of Classics and we must have a chat.

Do you still play them? Are you using the open source versions? Have any compatibility issues with these titles on a modern OS? Also, could you post a pic of your setup? I'm interested in seeing this monitor in the wild
