24" 1080p, 144Hz Gaming Monitor Low Input Lag

post #1 of 41
Thread Starter 
I am looking to buy a 24" 1080p gaming monitor with low input lag. It is for my son, he runs a Nvidia GPU in his PC, built about 15 months ago..

Is G-Sync worth it? He tells me that he does not care about it as he normally turns off V-Sync anyway, but from own reading and understanding it is a totally difference concept, it will be a worthwhile requirement.

Is so, what are my choices?


He really like the Benq XL2430 but it does not have G-Sync. I suggested we get the ASUS ROG SWIFT PG248Q, which is not available in Australia as yet but should be out soon.

What are your thoughts?

Is there a massive difference between an IPS and TN panels these days? Does it make difference to input lag?

If your son is of a competitive gaming mindset, then G-Sync is not worth the extra cost as it introduces a slight bit of lag, not as much as V-Sync of course. However, the experience and fluidity provided by G-Sync for non-competitive games should be considered if he's into that side of gaming at all.

Currently there is a deal on a recently released S2417DG monitor, although a TN it's one of the best TN panels in terms of picture quality. To top it off, the monitor provides an even higher refresh rate than the BENQ he wanted, higher resolution with G-Sync, solid Dell QC, etc. http://www.dell.com/en-us/shop/dell-24-gaming-monitor-s2417dg/apd/210-aizs/monitors-flat-panel-widescreen

There is not a noticeable a difference between the speeds of a TN panel and IPS panel nowadays. However, even though I personally prefer IPS monitors. As a smart-minded consumer, I would go with the Dell TN as the QC on the high refresh rates IPS G-Sync panels are trash (speaking from personal experience after buying multiples of both).

The problem is that it is a 1440p panel, I recommended him a 27" 1440p but he suggested that he may need to upgrade other parts in the PC to get the full benefit of 1440p resolution and he is more comfortable with 24" monitor. Other things like frame rate and input lag are more important to him. He is into competitive gaming.

Not to mention there is a big price between the two in Australia, Dell is $860 and Benq $560.

If you're interested in the S2417DG, it has very good 1080p scaling. I actually just made a post about it here.

G-sync is a gimmick. I'm yet to see someone running it who hasn't complained about it and regretted the extra few hundred dollars their monitor cost.
You can achieve a clean image with the correct graphics settings.

This Dell is $300 extra in Australia, I am not sure the benefits of 1440p resolution on a 24" screen. I am leaning more towards the Benq at $560. ASUS ROG SWIFT PG248Q IS going to $100 more at $650.

SpinFX, I am getting mixed feelings on G-Sync, some really recommend it and some don't like yourself.

Any other recommendations?

the 24" asus vg248qe is a tried and tested monitor that a ton of fast paced shooting players love, me included.

the VG248QE is a 24" 1080p 144Hz 1ms panel (no gsync but as others said, not worth the extra cost) that goes for around ~$250. that one's got my vote.
