1.Acer Nitro XV282K

Pros & Cons

For years, my primary gaming display has been the Asus VS228H-P, a 21.5-inch screen with a 1920 x 1080 resolution I’ve had since late 2015. Even though it’s old, I’ve had very few complaints with it. But when I picked up both a PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X last year, I wondered if I wasn’t using them to their full abilities by not having a monitor that could take advantage of the 120fps and 4K resolution of which the consoles were capable.

For the past month and a half, I’ve been able to test Acer’s Nitro XV282K KV, the company’s new $900 gaming monitor, with two HDMI 2.1 ports, that supports 4K resolution and 120Hz refresh rates. During that time, I’ve been using it as my primary gaming screen to see if the high cost is worth investing in for higher-fidelity gaming.

2.SAMSUNG Odyssey G5

Pros & Cons

The Samsung Odyssey G5 is a good gaming monitor. It has a large screen and high resolution, great for playing atmospheric games like RPGs. Motion handling is good, as it has a high refresh rate and quick response time to make fast motion look clear and buttery smooth.

Its input lag is exceptionally low, and it supports variable refresh rate technology to reduce screen tearing. Sadly, it has terrible ergonomics and sub-par viewing angles, so it isn’t the best option for co-op gaming.

3.LG 27GL850-B

Pros & Cons

The LG UltraGear 27GL850-B is a very good 1440p monitor. It has an outstanding response time, quicker than most 144Hz monitors we’ve seen so far. This results in exceptionally clear motion in any scene, with almost no blur behind fast-moving objects. It also has outstanding low input lag for a responsive gaming experience.

This monitor supports AMD’s FreeSync variable refresh rate (VRR) technology, and it’s also NVIDIA certified as G-SYNC compatible, so VRR works automatically with recent NVIDIA graphics cards. Unfortunately, like almost all IPS monitors, it doesn’t look as good in dark rooms, as it has a disappointing contrast ratio and poor black uniformity.

4.Acer SB220Q bi

Pros & Cons

The SB220Q has wide viewing angles—rated at 178 degrees for both vertical and horizontal. I looked at the screen from extreme off-center angles, and I noted little skewing or softening of colors. Sometimes, on budget displays, you see big color shifts or posterization of portions of the image at these far-off angles; not here.

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.

5.Sceptre Curved 30″

Pros & Cons

The Sceptre C305B monitor is based on a 29.5″ VA (Vertical Alignment) panel with a static contrast ratio of 3,000:1, a peak brightness of 250-nits, 8-bit color depth support, and ~90% sRGB color gamut.

In comparison to IPS ultrawides, you don’t get as vibrant or accurate colors. Still, you do get a higher contrast ratio, which makes for deeper blacks and a more vivid relation between the brightest and the darkest shades.

The colors look good on the Sceptre C305B-200UN nonetheless, it’s more than bright enough under normal viewing conditions, and it’s a real treat when playing content in a dark room where you can really take advantage of the monitor’s high contrast ratio.


Best Gaming Monitors for Xbox One – If you want a monitor with a bigger screen than the Dell UltraSharp U2720Q, then you’re better off with a TV like the LG OLED48CXPUB. It has an amazingly low input lag, a near-instantaneous response time, and a Black Frame Insertion feature that further improves motion clarity. It supports FreeSync, is compatible with G-SYNC, and has HDMI 2.1 inputs, which means it supports 4k @ 120Hz gaming. Like all OLEDs, it can produce perfect blacks due to its infinite contrast ratio, making it a fantastic choice for gaming in the dark. The downside is the risk of permanent burn-in, which can happen when static content remains on the screen for an extended period. However, we don’t expect it to be an issue for most people. Also, since this is a TV, there are no ergonomic adjustments, so you might not be able to get the best viewing position.
