Who games at 1080p anymore. 1440p 144hz is the sweet spot at the moment

Errr everyone who doesn't care for 1440p? 1080p is still a sweet spot for 24 inch, especially at 240Hz.

The on-page image may be slightly wrong, with the monitor actually having much thinner bezels:

1080p 240Hz 24" makes little sense.

What the guy said above you.

Although you can't see it, once the monitor is turned on there is a black border around the screen inside of the bezel that increases their thickness.

The on page image is accurate.

Guilty
I was also going to say £200 seems steep for a 1080p monitor even if it is 240hz. Why not pick up one of those qnix 1440p monitors that overclock to 100hz for roughly the same price?

this one is better for Rocket League, just, although the difference would be negligible at best so it might be worth saving the £30.

That's a really old monitor with a terrible panel - bad image quality and no FreeSync. Definitely pay the small premium for the monitor in this deal - it has a much newer, better panel and has a height-adjustable stand, the cheaper one doesn't have that.

Ive got the Pg258q which I think is the same panel but a different monitor. They're stunning. But the bezel is deceptive. Looks like there's barely any bezel while it's off but once on an additional black border becomes visible.

You can see the border here if you scroll down the page a bit to the images. It's the grey ish not quite black border that's shown when the screen is off. It's not a big deal, but it's wider than the narrow bezel suggest. A lot of displays are like this.

I have another benq display with a completely different panel that does the same thing. It looks almost bezel free when off but switch it on and there's a hidden border.

Edit: a word. Additional info.

To be clear, I'm not bashing the display. The border under the glass thing is pretty common.

For AMD cards, it synchronizes the monitor's frame rate with the frame rate being rendered by the GPU - which eliminates screen tearing and makes gameplay smoother.

I bought this last week on laptops direct and have been very impressived by it. The difference between 60fps and 144/240hz is ridiculous
Ordered. Mate has one, looks great
