Only recommendation I could give you is look for a 4k one especially if you have an Xbox or considering buying the Scorpio

I ordered Asus MG279Q, received email stating the product is waiting for me and when I got there they told me sorry it's sold out. I went to see the manager, told him I paid in full, came to pick up the order and someone sold it. So, for inconvenience he give me Asus ROG Swift PG279Q for the same price as MG279Q ...

 

Once in a life time.

I'm in the market for a 4K monitor too, with super low response and input lag...

I've been hearing happy noises from others that recently upgraded their screens - can't remember what they bought though.


I like cats and cheese and CoD. Don't mix them up, it'll ruin your lunch and your Xbox. And your cat.

I bought the Asus MG28UQ 4k at the end of last year thinking I'd need it for my One S. It undeniably a nice monitor but not a game changer for the One S. Im hoping it is for the Scorpio. Its not really true 4K if the game isn't anyway. It's also not 60 fps at hdmi 2.0 either. You have to use the display port for that. Xbox One doesn't have it yet (not sure if the X will) and adapters do not work.

This is my 3rd Asus monitor and I like it a lot. One complaint though is getting it to wake up out of sleep mode can be a chore. I was on the phone with Asus and they had me change some power settings. It did nothing to fix it. I love the ability to lift, tilt turn etc though.

If you need 4K you better shop around. There may be better by now. I'd even consider a 4k tv if size doesn't matter. Finding one below 40" will be a chore though. At least one where the specs fit. Go to rtngs.com for research. Its been the best site I've seen so far for this info.✌👍

This is my old monitor. It's amazing for the money.

Can't go wrong with that model; I've had two, and I bought both from Amazon. It's out of stock here ( https://www.amazon.c...e/dp/B00CFFFGUM ) but you could "upgrade" to the latest version of that model - the BenQ Zowie RL2455 - if you can't find the HM. It may set you back about £30 more though.

Sorted that for you IIIRL.

I've just got a IIyama gold master 4K for the upcoming X, it's working out great for 1080p too.

It uses the same panel as the Samsung 4K.

It cost me 285 very lucky to get it for that 😁

Cheers Zen 👍

I had an Asus VE247H before I got my second BenQ; very similar spec/cost-wise but also as old so it might be tough to pick one up. I believe it was classed as the successor to the "Evo" model that was used at tournaments before BenQ became more popular, as it had under half a frame (7.8ms) of input lag, while I believe the RL2455HM averages around 10ms. Not much difference of course, and it still performs admirably, but I'd imagine you can pick up newer more responsive models for around the same price now.

I've never played PC games so I've never used anything other than a 60Hz monitor, but I've always wondered something. Higher refresh rate monitors always seem to have lower input lag (well TN monitors anyway); does that mean you can set it to 60Hz for use on console and enjoy the same responsiveness, or does that lower lag result directly from more, shorter frames being displayed? I've never been able to wrap my head around that while browsing through 120Hz options.

If the former is true it would be great for those who want to simplify their setup as they could use the same monitor for both console and PC gaming. Then again, hardcore PC gamers probably prefer 144Hz which isn't a multiple of 60Hz anyway :/

benq XL2720Z, it has single strobe, which is a must for console gaming, you can move the cross talk to a different area of the screen, and many of the other well loved features. the draw back for me is the menus are very fiddly, before i had this monitor i averaged about 6-9 kills per game, now im about 20-24kills per game.

The Asus controls are goofy too. The inconvenient location and everything are a pain. A remote would be nice.

I have the xl2420t picked it up second hand from some guy who gave me receipt with it,he had it 6 months and I payed £130 for it off him,was all boxed up like brand new even had all the peeley plastic on it still,I love it,hopefully see better things from it once Xbox X is released as it is obviously too powerful for console so a bit of a waste at the moment,bought it when AW was released same time I got the duma

I think you should check out more options of 4k or 144Hz gaming monitors. According to me, they are the best monitor options to play online gaming.
