Advice needed

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I am currently looking into buying a 240hz Monitor. AOC, ASUS and Benq all have offerings - does anyone have any advice on which of the 3 models would be the better option. I understand it may not be a huge gain over 144hz but for me I see it being worthwhile.

Price wise in AUD Benq 699, AOC 599 and ASUS 899.

I'm not sold on going with Benq again. I have a 2720z now and I'm not overly happy with the quality of the build & Firmeware issues.

thankyou to anyone who has some useful info or even just a opinion. smile.gif

Why do you need 240hz, I'm curious because that will help me answer your question.

I can't advise otherwise, if it's for gaming we have better options, if it's for something else then we need to discuss it

Cheers

Thankyou for replying first of all!

I would be looking at this purchase purely for competitive gaming where I am happy to sacrifice quality of image for frame rate & perceived input lag. I have attempted to do as much reading prior to coming here for advice regarding 144hz to 244hz. If I'm correct in what I've read in a game like Overwatch (OW) I'm limited to a FPS cap of 300 which limits my 'input lag' as such to 3.3ms at the cost of tearing/stuttering - albeit very rare and dependant on conditions. If I were to cap my FPS in OW to say 138 to remove the stutter I would then sacrifice input lag putting me somewhere in the ballpark of 7.4ms~. I have been testing this on my own without any tools just purely through feel and I guess where I am at is trying to decide whether being able to raise the FPS cap to 235+ with reduced stutter would have that much of a impact with losing as little input latency as possible.

I hope that mini wall'o'text has made sense and helps clarify why I am looking into these options. smile.gif

No that makes perfect sense hence why you wouldn't want a 4k screen for the eye candy.

IN which case I'd go with the Asus, they make solid monitors and to be honest, when you're looking at monitors of this calibre there isn't much in it.
