Wanting a quality 24" monitor

Was looking at the Acer G246HL for only around $100, but I realized it's kind of old.

Also the Dell SE2419H for $130

Any suggestions? I don't care about freesync or anything, just want quality

Im no monitor expert, but I really like my Asus VG245H monitors.


I use one as a secondary to my samsung 4k for readouts and such.


Pretty bright, decent horizontal refresh for FPS gaming, and darn good color presets.


The built in speakers are junk IMO, but very usable in a pinch.


It has freesync, but you can simply set it to regular 75hz refresh if you want.


bestbuy currently sells them for $200, but Im sure you can get a better deal elsewhere, as they are at least 1.5 years old, and plenty of competition for small 1080p monitors has come out since then.


I would see if there are any reviews on it prior to purchase. Just because I like them a lot, doesnt mean its universally loved.

Samsung S24F350 is one of the most sold IPS monitors in the size you want. It has adaptive sync, 1080p 60Hz. Or you can try some other like the LG.

If you want a "quality" with good features those are often expensive professional use oriented monitors, BenQ, EIZO, NEC, ...
If you want just a common home/office monitor then there are plenty to choose from.

basically any samsung or lg monitor with adaptive sync and an ips display will be good 4 gaming. if doing a lot of content consuming, VA is better than IPS because of the 2x contrast ratio improvement, but VA is worse for gaming because of response time,

Don't bother with open box, refurbished, ... you're gonna get that from many shops when buying new anyway. So buy from a good seller where you can easily return/exchange in case of issues with the item received be it quality or seller trying to walk the gray area.

As said before the Samsung and LG probably aren't a bad choice and you can likely find more similar monitors.
