Get used to the 24" monitors, they really dont make anything smaller.
Or just get a bigger one and just get used to it, 24" are so small it`s painful to use.

I have had 27 inch 1440P monitors for 6-7 years now and every time i need to use the second PC with a 23,8 1080P monitor it feels microscopic both in size and resolution

It's not obsolete. https://www.newegg.com/p/N82E16824236313

That's still the best monitor for multiplayer FPS games. What are these newer 24" monitors you are speaking of?

It's old, and its crap.

The viewsonic has no PWM (flicker), better colors, better viewing angles, better input lag, motion blur difference is negligible between them, however in reality the PWM backlight on the VG248QE will make blur look worse and it causes eye strain. Like i said the VG248QE should NEVER be bought in 2019 over the other options, its been replaced for awhile now. Idiots still buy it because they filter by most reviews.

Do you live in a capsule apartment or something?

If you need something smaller than 23.5" then your only option for a faster display is a laptop display.

24" is tiny though. Usable but small. You can easily get used to a larger display with equal PPI, but going down is much harder after you're used to the extra space to use.

I trust filtering by most reviews on Newegg rather than some sketchy website I've never heard of. It seems that the Viewsonic doesn't even have DVI either. So to me it is worse than the Asus 24" monitor. It depends how serious of a gamer you are. At Quakecon I'm pretty sure they use that Asus monitor and 27" is bad for competitive gaming. The sweet spot for FPS players is still 24".

I'm actually using the 27" version of that Asus right now and I want to go back to the 24". I ordered it from Amazon recently but had problems with the packaging.

To each his own. To me, the Asus 24" 144Hz monitor is the best for serious gamers.

The viewsonic i linked is 24", DVI is outdated and even new graphics cards don't use it anymore. Serious gamers have been using 240hz for the past year so idk what you're talking about.

DVI is pretty much dead and gone so a monitor lacking it is not a problem or a huge deal in fact its common these days
As for the Asus unless you are on a super tight budget you can get a 240hz monitor for $329 US and up which makes the Asus obsolete

Really serious and/or professional gamers would laugh at the Asus today
If you are on a tight budget then sure its not the worst thing you could buy but saying its great is pushing it too far its okey
