PC monitor manufacturers tend to focus on a particular buzzword or acronym almost every year. In the past, we have been treated to HD (high definition), denoting the screen is capable of running a minimum 720p resolution.

Choosing a monitor is not an easy decision to make, and not just because of the large number of variations in resolution, refresh rates, sizes and connectivity options. There are also varying panel technologies used to form each display that need to be considered. These panel technologies can be grouped into three broad categories which cover the vast majority of monitors sold in the consumer market.

G-SYNC works in a surprisingly simple way - it calculates how long the present frame takes to compute and then, crucially, varies the refresh rate of the monitor to match. It works between a minimum of 33.3ms (30fps) and the maximum supported refresh of the display. The key takeaway here is that the graphics card and monitor are both synced up to one another - the monitor doesn't have the limitations imposed by a rigid, fixed-rate scanning routine.

Now shipping with all but the cheapest complete PCs are LCD monitors. Advances in display manufacturing and associated cost reductions with economies of scale have brought LCD monitors into the mainstream, shipping with budget systems that start at just £400. LCD monitors come in all shapes and sizes, have differing resolutions and inputs. The purpose of this TekSpek is to provide a basic understanding of how LCDs work, delineate their desirable features, and to offer basic buying advice.

As you’ll all likely know by now, DVI is the current standard for connection of a PC or other display generator to a digital display output. You’ll recognise the multi-pin connector and know that almost all modern LCD displays have the corresponding input connector, for feeding from your PC. But do you know how DVI works? This TekSpek seeks to teach you how.

Date Issued: 14th Jun 2008

Whether the broadcasters are going HD or not, TV sets and projectors are arriving thick and fast which claim to support higher resolutions than regular telly. But HDTV is far from just one standard – it incorporates a couple of different resolutions, two different scanning modes, and a number of different frame rates. In this article, we present a guide to what all the terms actually mean.

There’s a lot more to High Definition than just having the ability to run your screen at the right resolution. With more than one type of connection available, and the thorny subject of signal encryption to contend with, just because your monitor and graphics are capable of 1,920 x 1,080 or better does not necessarily mean they will be able to display HDTV in all its glory.

23.8" Acer Nitro VG240YS Monitor, IPS, 1920x1080, 144Hz (165Hz OC), 2ms, FreeSync, HDR, 100M:1, 250cd/m², HDMI/DP is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good performing 144/165hz for the money Pleased with this monitor, text is sharp, good colours. set up with adaptive G-sync for my 1060 gpu no issues. Vibrant, responsive panel to my eyes (I am no expert though). No dead pixels, usual amount of IPS panel glow, not bad though. I was a bit wary as I can find no info on this particular panel on the net, is it replacing the VG240YP? On my vVidia console it shows as VG240YV.... But anyway, took a punt and very very happy. Ask me if you have any queries and i wil attemp to aid.. Crysis here i come. Cloak engaged.

Is this the same as the Acer Nitro VG240Y Pbiip? I have never seen a VG240YS model before does the S stand for anything?

Asked by: Knighty54
As hinted on my review, Im not sure where this monitor fits with the 240YP and 240YB. It has a higher refresh than either of them with the overclockable 165hz setting. I cannot find any more information on it. The tech support at Scan said it looked like a new year quarter 1 iteration of the VG240YPbiip, however, the full model number on the packing box is VG240YSbmiipx, which might indicate it is a higher refresh rate version of the VG240Ybmiipx....

I would like to know that can you over clock more than 165hz, and also whats the exact response time for this monitor.
