1.Sceptre IPS 27-Inch
- Wide Viewing Angles: Wide viewing angles keep all the action sharply in sight from almost any viewing position while gaming on large monitors or dual-display setup.
- Fast Response Time: Playing fast action games and watching action adventure movies always require fast and accurate pixel response from an LED. With quick response times, ghosting and blurring are reduced so the user can enjoy the display with clarity and precision.
The display size, also known as viewable image size (VIS) is the physical size of the area where videos are displayed – not the monitor case itself. The size of a screen is the length of its diagonal, which is the distance between opposite corners, usually in inches. Check our compare monitors page to see other monitors this size at a larger range of prices.
When it comes to the all important specs the max screen resolution is 1920 x 1080 pixels, the refresh rate is 75 Hz. This is a 1080p Sceptre monitor and can run at 75 Hz.back to menu ↑
2.HP VH240a 23.8-Inch
- RESOLUTION & PANEL — 23.8-inch Full HD monitor (1920 x 1080p at 60 Hz) with 16:9 aspect ratio and an anti-glare matte IPS LED-backlit panel (2 million pixels, 16.7 million colors)
- RESPONSE TIME — 5ms with overdrive for a smooth picture that looks crisp and fluid without motion blur
The VH240a employs a 23.8-inch (measured diagonally) in-plane switching (IPS) screen, with full HD/1080p resolution (1,920 by 1,080 pixels) and a 16:9 widescreen aspect ratio. The panel has a respectable pixel density of 92 pixels per inch (ppi), which is more than enough for typical home or office use, though photo or video enthusiasts will likely want a screen with a higher pixel density.
As is typical of IPS displays, the VH240a has very wide viewing angles, rated at 178 degrees for both vertical and horizontal. I saw a minimum of color distortion or posterization, even when I viewed the screen from the most extreme off-center angles.back to menu ↑
- 23. 8 inch Full HD (1920x1080) LED backlit display with IPS 178° wide viewing angle panel
- Up to 144Hz refresh rate with Adaptive-Sync (FreeSync ) technology to eliminate tracing and ensure crisp and clear video playback
The ASUS VP249QGR is yet another 24″ 1080p 144Hz gaming monitor based on PANDA’s IPS panel. It’s the least expensive model, but as such, it skimps on certain features such as design versatility.
Its performance and image quality, however, are on par with (or even better) certain more expensive alternatives! Overall, it’s an excellent budget gaming monitor.
There are better (though slightly more expensive) alternatives, but if you have a limited budget you won’t be disappointed by the VP249QGR.back to menu ↑
4.ASUS 24″ 1080P
- 24 inch Full HD (1920x1080) display with an overclockable 165Hz (supports 144Hz) rapid refresh rate and 0.5ms (GTG) response time
- NVIDIA G-SYNC technology removes stutter and screen tearing for the smoothest gaming experience
The size of a screen is the length of its diagonal, which is the distance between opposite corners, usually in inches. Check our compare monitors page to see other monitors this size at a larger range of prices.
When it comes to the all important specs the max screen resolution is 1920 x 1080 pixels, the refresh rate is 165 Hz, and the response time is 0.5 ms. This is a 1080p Asus monitor and can run at 165 Hz.back to menu ↑
5.AOC G2490VX 24″
- 24" class (23.8" Viewable) AOC Gaming monitor with 1920x1080 Full HD Resolution VA Panel
- Rapid 1ms response time (MPRT) and 144Hz refresh rate with AMD FreeSync Premium for ultra-smooth competitive gameplay
This panel offers a superior static contrast ratio of 4,000:1 and a strong peak brightness of 350-nits. In comparison, the more common 23.6″ curved panels have a bit lower static contrast ratio of 3,000:1 and a peak brightness of 250-nits.
Now, the difference in contrast ratio and brightness is not particularly noticeable, especially since 250-nits is more than bright enough for most users under normal lighting conditions.
Moving on, the AOC G2490VX features a wide 93% DCI-P3 color gamut (equivalent to ~126% sRGB) for more saturated and lifelike colors, and it has true 8-bit color depth support (16.7 million colors without dithering).back to menu ↑
