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.

24" Acer Predator XB241H, TN Monitor, 144Hz (180Hz in OC Mode), NVIDIA G-Sync, 1920x1080, 1ms, DP/HDMI, Black/ Red is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best TN I've ever seen There are many people looking for a G-Sync monitor. However, they do come at a hefty price, so the decision is not always easy. Besides the AOC, the XB241H was the cheapest one on the market (btw in comparison with other retailers Scan sells it for 20-30£ cheaper). The AOC has been around for ages (think since 2014 or so, the first with G-sync tech), so I have decided to go with something fresher (XB241H is a refresh of 144Hz XB240H btw). I have to say that I do come from rather an old monitor, Samsung 226BW (22" TN panel 1680x1050), so bare with me. By the way, the monitor was manufactured in October 2016 and I bought it this February, so basically the panel is really fresh. Long story short, lets get back to the pros and cons. Pros: No dead or stuck pixels (0). No back light bleed, just tiny strips (1-2 mm) from under the left and right bezel, can hardly call it a bleed. Uniformity is nice as well, no hot spots, corners clean, centre is black as it can be. Colour are very decent right out the box (8-bit panel for sure), bright and vivid. You can say they must be since I come form an old derelict of a monitor, but I also own a Microsoft Surface 3 with a very nice IPS panel, colours are kinda in between Sammy TN and Surface IPS. And I haven't even tried to fiddle with the settings yet. Contrast is rather on a good side for a TN panel, nice blacks, decent whites, thx to the absence of bleed, but once again have not tried to calibrate yet. G-Sync does wonders, especially if you are floating around 80-120 fps ( I do, with a GTX 970). Although, there is no wow factor as with some of the technologies such as 3d or Full HD projector, but you do get that feeling of speed and fluidity of motion, and after a few hours you can't believe that there are monitors without that and get to the point where you can safely say you will not buy your next a monitor without some sort of this tech. Just don't forget to remove any v-sync in the game, put monitor to 144Hz, turn G-Sync in Nvidia control panel as well as force V-sync in Nvidia panel, and you good to go. Nice tech, adds a lot to any, be it an old or a new game, hard to explain but looks like you watching a nice, fluid cartoon on the screen, absence of tearings and lags take the picture closer to real life, picture is so clean, fluid and nice that sometimes it looks like things try to pop out of the screen as with 3d (although everyone's experience is different as well as there are different games). So far have tried WoW (with the amount of objects on screen, especially in raids, and tearing these objects produce, G-sync does a wonder for this game), Quake 2 (ULMB is very nice), Doom3: BFG (those who played know the game's tearing is something out of this world, G-sync completely obliterates that, makes everything smooth and clear, not even one tear), MW: Online (very good as well, although liked ULMB more, Crisis engine produces a lot of blur), Resident Evil 7 (with 970 I'm floating around 80-100 fps on max), G-sync all the way, everything is smooth, getting the game even closer towards a horror 3d movie. 144Hz after 60Hz is a big jump, feels nice indeed. Monitor overclocks to 180Hz, which is even better (colour and contrast exactly the same, no lag, no artifacts, no nothing just pure fluidity of 180Hz). Works perfect with Nvidia 3d glasses, once again no artifacts, cross-talk etc. Very fast panel. ULMB works decent, we know the brightness is largely reduced due to the black frames, but in case with this monitor is pretty much enough (if you put it to 100%) to not feel yourself wanting to crank it up. Does what it says on the box, hugely reduces the motion blur (feels good in fast paced, fast fps games, like Q1, Q2, Q3, CS etc. Build quality is good, hard black plastic, looks and feels sturdy, inbuilt power supply (no brick). Bezels are thin and nice, at nighttime makes monitor to kinda float in the dark. I liked the stand, especially the negative tilt (tilts 5 degrees towards the back, bringing top closer towards you), kinda important for a TN panel. Also, at the top of the stand's pillar is a hook to put your headphones onto, cool feature. Haven't tried the inbuilt speakers, but don't thing they are any good, just couple of 2Ws. You get matte coating, no reflections etc., which I like. I know some would prefer glossy, but with this one you don't get any pixel or matrix effect (at least form 1 foot away). Cons: Not that many The infamous stand (those T-Rex feet) as wide as the panel itself. I guess alright if you have enough of space on your desk. TN is not an IPS, even if it is a good TN, the colours do shift side to side, top to bottom, not that much though. If you come from an IPS, don't blame this monitor, rather save some money and buy a bigger brother, one of ASUS or Acer IPS G-Sync 2k/4k resolution 700£+ monsters. If you need G-sync that is, for ATI users there are plenty of Free-sync monitors for much lower prices, even 2k 144Hz IPS/VA panels that cost a little bit more that the XB241H. Not quite a con, but monitor is very bright, I keep it on 30-50%. On the other hand more brightness is good for ULMB. ULMB does not have settings to change the pulse width, it is just sort of on/off, although it work nice by default. Just choose ULMB in Nvidia CP and put monitor to 120Hz and you done. Menu buttons and general navigation could be better, but it's just nitpicking. Overall the XB241H is a very nice G-sync TN panel, which does exactly what it says on the box. G-sync, ULMB, 180Hz work perfect. May be I'm lucky and got a perfect panel, but I really liked the quality, especially for that price (one, if not the cheapest G-sync on the market), also liked the 1080p resolution which kinda perfect for my GTX 970. All of the above and the fact that these panels are exactly the same as those ASUS use in their 24" TN ROG monitors, which cost 50-100 £ more made to choose it over the others.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Powerful, future-proof, gamer's heaven, but something isn't quite right... This monitor is a seriously strong piece of equipment, geared toward competitive gaming to an outstanding degree. 1MS response times, g-sync, refresh rate numbers, built in crosshairs, a 'dark boost' for those dark corners where snipers might be hiding, the list stretches on. All these combine to deliver a truly phenomenal experience. It does however come at a price. After using this monitor for a couple of weeks, one gets the feeling that all this fine tuning for delivering the best possible gaming experience has made ordinary every day use (outside of gaming) slightly less than optimal. While the problem of 'backlight bleed' is something that exists in every TN panel to some extent, after using more than one of these monitors I've found it to be particularly prevalent in this model, but only on totally black backgrounds or on particularly gloomy scenes on Netflix or Youtube. That said, it may be the case that I'm just particularly unlucky. Back to the good stuff. This monitor is particularly easy on the eyes (both aesthetically as well as for eye strain) to the extent where I no longer need the yellow glasses I once did for extended sessions. The user interface and menus are intuitive can can be operated easily with only the most cursory glance at an online manual. The 'overclockability' provides an awesome level of future-proofing, so much so that years down the road when you can pick up a Titan XP from the scrap yard for a fiver, this monitor should still smash 1080p gaming with the best of them with such amazing refresh rates. Great monitor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I was anxious... Monitors especially Gsync (well at the moment) are not cheap, so after reading lots of reviews I chose a totally different monitor to this, then changed my mind several hours after I had ordered it, did I really need 2k on a 24 inch, no. Scan were brilliant as ever and changed the order with no fuss. It arrived the following day, so easy to set up and surprisingly sturdy and easy to adjust. I had read how TN monitors are washed out compared to IPS well if thats true IPS must be amazing because I am over the moon with just how good the colours are. No dead pixels and although not the simplest controls they are hardly rocket science so it was straight forward to pull off some elses settings from the internet and adjust mine accordingly and given we all have slightly different preferences, a minor tweek and I was well happy. OMG what difference a decent moniotor and gsync makes to your fav games, FF4, Witcher 3 and even Grim Dawn look awesome.
