1.Sceptre Curved

Pros & Cons

There’s a lot to like about the Sceptre C248W-1920RN including very good image quality, impressive grayscale performance and a very reasonable price than most curved 24-inch monitors. It is a good choice for budget gaming, better still, it can double as a very able monitor for video watching.

The Sceptre C248W-1920RN is a curved 24-inch FHD (1,920-by-1,080) designed for casual gamers, or users who spend equal amounts of time working on a desktop PC and a laptop PC. Although not as expansive as the Samsung CRG9 49-inch Curved Ultrawide Monitor we recently reviewed, the C248W is a much more conventional monitor than that super-ultrawide behemoth.

2.AOC G2490VXS

Pros & Cons

There’s an sRGB mode in the OSD (On-Screen Display) menu that’s supposed to restrict the color gamut to ~100% sRGB for a more accurate sRGB color representation, but its accuracy varies across different units of the monitor.

The AOC G2490VX monitor also supports HDR (High Dynamic Range). Thanks to its high contrast ratio, decent peak brightness (considering the price) and wide color gamut support, some HDR content will look a bit better.

3.Acer R240HY bidx

Pros & Cons

The color production of the R240HY is what we consider more mid-tier for LCD monitors. This Acer has vibrant colors with pretty good contrast ratio and relatively deep blacks for an IPS monitor. For its price range, this monitor has sharp, crisp picture quality and is great for displaying all your favorite media.

The wide 178-degree viewing angles of the IPS panel also means it will look really good from just about anywhere, so when you’re watching a movie with friends, every seat in the house is a good one.

4.HP VH240a

Pros & Cons

The monitor stand feels sturdy with a single but sizable upright, and the panel has the ability to tilt 30 degrees to adjust the vertical viewing angle. The upright can also slide the monitor up and down about five inches. The tilt and height adjustments give the VH240a a pretty good amount of customization for any workstation, but the monitor also comes standard with a VESA mounting option, so you can attach the monitor to the wall or an adjustable arm.

The VESA mounting option is especially handy for the VH240a because its base and stand feel a bit large for the otherwise slim design. The square base is almost 9 x 9 inches, which takes up quite a bit of desk space, especially if you’re going the multiple-screen route.

5.BenQ ZOWIE XL2411P

Pros & Cons

The BenQ ZOWIE XL2411P is a 24 inch, 1080p monitor with great gaming performance. It has an excellent response time, delivering clear motion with only a short blur trail behind fast-moving objects. It has outstanding low input lag, but unfortunately, it doesn’t support any of the variable refresh rate technologies, like AMD’s FreeSync.

This monitor has good peak brightness and good reflection handling, so glare shouldn’t be an issue in a bright room. Unfortunately, it has terrible black uniformity, and like all TN monitors the image degrades when viewed at an angle.


Best 144hz Monitors – There are lots of exciting features about modern monitors for gamers, but one of the most impactful is a high refresh rate. It makes everything look smoother and can even make you a better gamer by improving the rate at which your inputs are recognized. 60Hz is the standard, but because of how powerful modern graphics cards are, a 144Hz refresh rate is really where you want your best monitor to be.
