Best 240hz Gaming Monitors – Our recommendations are based on what we think are the best 240Hz monitors that are currently available. They are adapted to be valid for most people, in each price range. Rating is based on our review, factoring in price and feedback from our visitors.
If you would prefer to make your own decision, here is the list of all of our monitor reviews. Be careful not to get too caught up in the details. Most monitors are good enough to please most people, and the things we fault monitors on are often not noticeable unless you really look for them.

1.AOC C32G2ZE 32″
- 32-inch (31.5" viewable) AOC Gaming monitor with 1920x1080 Full HD Resolution (1080p) and 1500R curvature to put you at the center rof the action for an immersive gaming experience
- Super Rapid 0.5ms SmartResponse time (MPRT) and 240Hz super-high refresh rate to hit moving targets and get you ahead of the game by milliseconds
We’ve reviewed plenty of 1080p (1920×1080) monitors in 25 and 27-inch sizes and found them solid performers. Some run at 240 and even 360 Hz, allowing for very high frame rates. Obviously, this makes motion resolution much better. But when pixel density enters the discussion, how big is too big?
The AOC C32G2ZE seeks to answer that question with a 32-inch, curved, 1080p VA panel. It runs at 240 Hz and supports AMD FreeSync Premium. You get DCI-P3 color but no HDR; however, there are HDR emulation modes available.back to menu ↑
- 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 ↑
3.Acer SB220Q bi
- 21.5 inches Full HD (1920 x 1080) widescreen IPS display
- And Radeon free sync technology. No compatibility for VESA Mount
The SB220Q employs a 21.5-inch (measured diagonally) in-plane switching (IPS) panel with a full HD native resolution (aka 1080p, or 1,920 by 1,080 pixels), at a 16:9 widescreen aspect ratio. Pixel density is 102 pixels per inch (ppi), which is more than enough for everyday use.
At a given resolution, the smaller the screen size and the higher the pixel density should mean (in theory, at least) the sharper the image. For a 27-inch 1080p monitor, such as the Philips 272E1CA Curved Frameless Monitor, the pixel density is already down to 82ppi. You wouldn’t want to go any larger than 27 inches with a 1080p monitor.back to menu ↑
- 27-INCH CURVED MONITOR with an industry-leading 1800R curvature allows you to be fully immersed in the game experience
- 3-SIDED FRAMELESS MONITOR ideal for maximum viewing and dual monitor usage
There are some quite capable recent gaming monitors that do not support HDR, including the Dell 27 Gaming Monitor (S2719DGF) reviewed just before this model. But with HDR compatibility becoming more common in AAA games, it’s becoming a feature worth looking for on gaming displays as a future-looking item, and its inclusion serves to a monitor’s advantage.
Between its balanced resolution, HDR capabilities, FreeSync 2, high curvature, wide color gamut, and very good image quality, the Samsung CHG70 27-Inch Curved Monitor has a lot to recommend as a gaming monitor—enough to earn it our Editors’ Choice. Even better, it can double as a very able monitor for video watching.back to menu ↑
5.Pixio PX279 Prime
- 27 inch FHD 1920 x 1080p Resolution IPS HDR Professional Esports Gaming Monitor
- IPS Panel, HDR Ready and 400nit Brightness for rich and detailed contrasts
Of late, there has been no letup in the refresh rate battle. Though 144 Hz gaming monitors are almost a dime a dozen, there are plenty of faster screens to be had too. 240 Hz displays are becoming commonplace, and the bleeding edge is now at 360 Hz.
When the word “commonplace” creeps into the narrative, it brings an inevitable drop in prices. More competition equals better value. Pixio embraces this economic inevitability with a host of high-performance panels that sell for reasonable money while competing with some of the best gaming monitors specs-wise.back to menu ↑
Best 240hz Gaming Monitors – For many gamers, especially in the world of competitive gaming, a high refresh rate is often considered more important than resolution or size, as it provides smoother gameplay and possibly an advantage over their lesser-equipped opponents. There aren’t many monitors with a 240Hz refresh rate, and most of them have TN panels, though IPS panels are starting to make their appearance as well. Our list is short for now, but we’ll update our recommendations when more of these monitors are released and tested.
