MistaSparkul I believe the VG248QE has been updated to not use PWM but I'm not 100% sure. Even if did, it's still an inferior monitor unless Asus also updated it to support Freesync/Gsync compatible. If Asus did both of those...then I guess that puts it about on par with every other 144Hz monitor out there. Except for maybe colors but nobody buying a TN panel is serious about colors in the first place so that's more or less a moot point.

Serious gamers have not been using 240Hz because at LAN events such as Quakecon, the monitors aren't 240Hz. It is obvious that Malinkadink and shilka are talking out of their asses. I'm pretty sure that even Fatal1ty uses the Asus 24" monitor. On different forums (don't know what they are off the top of my head) there seems to be input lag problems with 240Hz monitors. Does the Viewsonic monitor even have Lightboost?

That link says what the best gaming monitors are in 2019. I don't see your precious Viewsonic monitor at the top. But what's that? OK let's scroll down. Oh what do we have here?

8. ASUS VG248QE

The best 1080p monitor for gaming

Screen size: 24-inch | Panel type: TN | Aspect ratio: 16:9 | Resolution: 1920 x 1080 | Response time: 1ms | Refresh rate: 144Hz | Weight: 12.13 lbs

speed_demon Don't think they make any gaming monitors that small these days. The standard panel sizes start at 24".

Though if you are interested in a 4K monitor there is this one - https://www.lg.com/us/monitors/lg-22...hd-led-monitor
The refresh rate isn't as high as you'd like but the size is spot on.

shilka 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

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The viewsonic i linked is 24", DVI is outdated and even new graphics cards don't use it anymore.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.

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.

Passante Yeah, if you know any 23.5inch please share a link.

JackCY 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.

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