1.BenQ ZOWIE XL2546

Pros & Cons

Zowie is BenQ’s gaming brand, but you wouldn’t necessarily know this is a gaming monitor by looking at it. The rectangular stand and unadorned bezels give it a simple, serious look, not unlike the Dell business monitors I use on my home PC. The only gaming flair is a hint of red on the cable management hole in the stand, which is height, tilt, and swivel adjustable. If you’re an RGB hater, you’ll probably like the look of this display.

At , the XL2546 isn’t cheap, but it aims to be one of the best Esports monitors in its class: a blazingly-fast 240Hz refresh rate, 1080p resolution so even a mid-range graphics card can keep up, and a 24.5-inch size so you can see everything on screen at once.

2.Alienware 25 Monitor

Pros & Cons

The Alienware 25 is a blazingly fast monitor, with its 240Hz refresh rate and 1ms input lag. Its color performance isn’t very impressive, though, and it really could have used native Nvidia G-Sync. The ViewSonic Elite XGQ70QG offers a 1440p picture and far wider color reach, which (for most players and most games) will be worthy trade-offs for a 120Hz refresh rate and 2ms input lag.

If you can splurge a bit and frame rates are your be-all and end-all, the 1080p Asus ROG Swift PG259QN offers a 360Hz refresh rate and better general color and contrast, which is why it remains our Editors’ Choice winner at this size and resolution.

3.ASUS ROG Strix XG258Q

Pros & Cons

In terms of performance, this Asus ROG Strix monitor sits up there with the best. The 240Hz refresh rate delivers smooth visuals and the 1 m/s response time eliminates motion blur. The Strix XG258q has a full HD 1920×1080 TN panel screen and a maximum contrast ratio of 1000:1.

It also has the Asus Ultra-low Blue Light filters. With the right drivers, it’s both G-Sync and Freesync to eliminate screen tearing and create low motion blur. If you need something with an even faster response time, the AOC Agon AG271FZ2 is an excellent choice.

4.ViewSonic XG2530

Pros & Cons

ViewSonic XG2530 review: Design, features and build quality

The design and build quality of the XG2530 are superb. The bezels are relatively thin, so the screen feels nice and big. And though the stand is made out of plastic, it’s sturdy and allows you to tilt, pivot and fully rotate the display. The black and red colour scheme look quite classy, with an embroidered XG logo at the base; if you want to change the stand or mount the ViewSonic XG2530 on a wall, it’s VESA 100 x 100mm compatible.

The stereo 2W speakers aren’t powerful enough to produce an immersive sonic atmosphere, but they’re fine for Windows notifications.

5.Acer Predator XB253Q

Pros & Cons

Whilst gaming monitors – and monitors in general – have been getting bigger over time, there is still a large demand for smaller, 24″ displays – especially within the esports gaming community. The Acer Predator XB253Q GP falls nicely into the ‘smaller monitor’ category, equipped with a compact design alongside some pretty impressive performance specs to boot.

At the heart of this gaming monitor lies a very capable IPS (in-plane switching) panel that boasts great response and excellent immersive values – making it a fantastic choice for competitive gamers. The monitor comes to shelves with a 144Hz refresh rate, impressive 0.9ms (min) GTG response time, and VESA DisplayHDR 400 certification. Furthermore, with adaptive sync support for both AMD FreeSync and Nvidia G-sync, the XB253Q becomes one of the first panels within the Predator series to drop the dedicated G-Sync module – a feature it was once renowned for.


Best 144hz Monitors for Cs Go – To make it abundantly clear, these monitors are picked for serious players looking to play competitive CS:GO or other competitive games in general. Even if you are a casual gamer be warned though: once you go 144 Hz (or higher) there is no going back. I have a 60 Hz monitor as a second monitor and my eyes bleed every time I move the cursor over on that one.
