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.

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 Predator XB241YU Monitor, 144Hz, G-Sync, WQHD, 2560x1440, 1ms, 350cd/m2, DP/HDMI, Speakers, Black/Red is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from An excellent monitor I bought this as an upgrade on my 5 year old dell monitor. The screen looks fantastic and is a real upgrade to any basic monitor. No issues with the screen, build is great, value is fair, though it’s definitely a pricey but of kit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Overall brilliant monitor Great value for money considering it has all the features you could ever need for gaming. Very good build quality especially the stand, g-sync works wonders in games and even though built speakers aren't that powerful they were surprisingly pretty clear and useful at times.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality Product Had for 2 months now & have had no problems. the monitor it's self is amazing.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good but unstable I owned this monitor for exactly one month and everything was working fine. I followed the setup instructions exactly as I'm very delicate with all of my PC components. Things were looking great! The resolution was beautiful and the 144Hz refresh rate was very smooth. I loved it. Then after one month exactly It just goes black. The power would go on and nothing else would happen. Just blackness. I'm now having to send it to acer to be repaired. So over all after spending this much to be above problems like this and the product failing, I would not recommend this product. Invest in one that is more reliable.

Panel Type

In the product overview it says that this is an IPS panel but it also says that this is a TN panel. Could you tell me which is correct please? Also, I can't make up my mind whether to get this one or the XB241H.
Asked by: mookie
This is a TN panel & if you have a good enough pc to run games at 1440p I'd suggest this one over the xb241h as it's only 1080p and I dont think you'll notice the difference between 165hz and 180hz anyways, furthermore the xb241yu also has thinner bezels which in my opinion looks better aswell as being better for multi-monitor setups if you're into that.
