If it was 32 inch I'd bite
No dp?
Interfaces VGA ¦ DVI (HDCP) ¦ HDMI ¦ Audio line-out
I bought this OVER 3 YEARS AGO for £170 so its not exactly deal of the century.
I bought this last year.

Interface isn't very nice.

But the refresh rate more than makes up for it. Pretty sure this is easily the best and cheapest 144hz monitor you can buy. Be warned using a monitor that's not 144 (especially if you're gaming) will feel horrible.
Please avoid this monitor. Even for £140 this is extremely overpriced and a terrible monitor.

It flickers (PWM), has terrible image quality, awful blur, etc.

That will be due to the cheap TN panel. If you have any appreciation for your computer (and your eyes) you would look at VA or IPS panels instead - don't be fooled by the cheap price.

The panel it's using (M240HW01 v8) is decent for TN 144Hz 1080p <£220 standards, and there are many popular monitors using the same panel (XG2401/2, XL2411P, etc.). It's a terrible monitor for other reasons.

Reasons why it sucks:

- Lacks 144Hz over HDMI or a DisplayPort (which is needed by newer graphics cards).

- It has excessively obvious overshoot ghosting (not fixable).

- PWM is used to dim the backlight (further negatively contributing to the overall motion blur), which causes a potentially noticeable flicker and is generally unpleasant (regardless of being noticeable).

- Terrible image quality (relative to alternatives using the panel, such as the VX2458-mhd or XG2401).

There is absolutely no reason to consider the GN246HL, especially considering far superior monitors are only £20-60 more.
