Along the bottom edge of the panel is a strip of glossy-black trim that holds five function buttons and a Power switch, and around back are an HDMI port, a DVI port, and a VGA port, as well as a headphone jack. As with many midrange monitors, the R240HY lacks USB ports and speakers.
It’s also missing a DisplayPort input. Picture settings are basic and include Brightness, Contrast, and Blue Light adjustments, along with the usual analog (Position, Focus, and Clock) settings. You won’t find any advanced settings, such as the 6-Axis-Color and Gamma settings that you get with the Acer H257HU. Picture presets include User, ECO, Standard, Graphics, and Movie modes.
2.ASUS TUF Gaming VG259QM
Pros & Cons

- Aspect Ratio is 16:9; Viewing Angle (CR≧10, H/V) is 178°/ 178°; Brightness (Typ) is 400cd/㎡
- Fast IPS technology enables a 1ms response time (GTG) for sharp gaming visuals with high frame rates.
- ASUS Extreme Low Motion Blur Sync (ELMB SYNC) technology enables ELMB together with G-SYNC Compatible, eliminating ghosting and tearing for sharp gaming visuals with high frame rates
- Certified as G-SYNC Compatible, delivering a seamless, tear-free gaming experience by enabling VRR (variable refresh rate) by default
- High Dynamic Range (HDR) technology with professional color gamut delivers contrast and color performance that meets the DisplayHDR 400 certification

The ASUS TUF Gaming VG259QM is an excellent IPS monitor that delivers a smooth and responsive gaming experience. It shares many similarities with its bigger brother, the ASUS VG279QM, as it also has a 1080p resolution and a 280Hz refresh rate. It has great visibility in bright environments thanks to its impressive peak brightness, but to the contrary, it isn’t as well-suited for dark rooms due to its low contrast ratio.
It has exceptionally fast response time, a Black Frame Insertion feature, as well as native FreeSync support and G-SYNC compatibility. It supports HDR10; however, HDR content doesn’t look significantly better than in SDR because it lacks a wide color gamut and local dimming. On the upside, it has a great build quality, wide viewing angles, and outstanding ergonomics.
Pros & Cons
- ADAPTIVE SYNC: This NVIDIA G-SYNC certification enables a smooth, tear-free gaming experience. With stunning image quality, brilliant performance and exceptional responsiveness, it will change the way you game
- Aspect Ratio is 21:9; Viewing Angle is 178º (H) / 178º (V); Brightness is 400 cd/m²
- SCREEN: A 24.5 inch gaming monitor combined with native FHD 1080p resolution provides the best pixel-per-inch ratio, so details are clearer and images are life-like
- QUICKEN YOUR REACTIONS: This gaming monitor contains a 360Hz refresh rate combined with a 1ms GtG response time to eliminate motion blur and allow for fast-moving visuals to be seen with incredible clarity
- FAST TECHNOLOGY: New, fast IPS technology helps maintain image clarity from every angle. Plus, with up to 99% sRGB color coverage, you have a wide array of colors in your arsenal
- PLAY IT YOUR WAY: Height adjustable stand with swivel and tilt capabilities let you game in comfort for extended periods
The Dell Alienware AW2521H is an excellent gaming monitor. It’s one of the first few monitors released with an extremely high 360Hz refresh rate, which helps deliver an incredible response time with silky smooth motion. It also has an exceptionally low input lag and native G-SYNC variable refresh rate (VRR) support, but it doesn’t support FreeSync.
It’s really well-built and offers great ergonomics, so you shouldn’t have any difficulty placing it in an ideal viewing position. It has an IPS panel with wide viewing angles, but that comes at the cost of a low contrast ratio, so blacks appear closer to gray when viewed in the dark. The smaller screen and 1080p resolution may be too limiting for office use, but the lower resolution isn’t too taxing on your graphics card when gaming.
4.Dell U2520D 25″

The 25-inch flat IPS panel packs in 2,560 by 1,440 pixels, which is QHD resolution, at a 16:9 widescreen aspect ratio. Pixel density is a healthy 117 pixels per inch (ppi). That’s well short of the 163ppi density that we have seen on several recent premium productivity monitors, such as the Lenovo ThinkVision P27u-10 and the Editors’ Choice Dell UltraSharp 27 4K PremierColor (UP2720Q), both of which sport UHD or 4K resolution, though denser than the Dell 27 USB-C Monitor (P2720DC)’s 108ppi.
That said, given the relatively small 25-inch screen size, that’s a perfectly adequate native resolution for fine work, relative to those first two mentioned panels. (All else being equal, the higher the pixel density, the sharper that the text and other fine detail in an image should show up.)
5.AOC G2460PF 24
Pros & Cons
- 24" Class LED Monitor (24" Viewable) Full HD 1920 x 1080 resolution, 144hz Response Rate
- AMD FreeSync technology provides the smoothest gaming experience. Height adjust amount- 5.1 inches. Pixel Pitch (H) (V)- 0.276

The AOC G2460PF is based on the same TN panel by AU Optronics that’s still used in most new 24″ 1080p 144Hz 1ms TN gaming monitors.
You get the standard TN-like specifications, including a 350-nit peak luminance, a static contrast ratio of 1,000:1, narrow 160°/170° viewing angles, and 8-bit color depth via dithering (6-bit + 2-bit FRC).
While the image quality is on par with other 24″ TN models, the newer 24.5″ TN variants do have a bit richer colors and slightly better viewing angles and higher brightness. So, make sure to check out these 25″ models such as the AOC G2590FX.
