Yea it is.
Had this monitor last year, great panel and it was fantastic for R6 Siege. I was able to hit 200+ fps and it felt ultra smooth. However, I went from 1440p down to the 1080p resolution and tbh if this is your primary monitor, I wouldn't sacrifice the 1440p for 240hz. If a second monitor solely for fps, absolutely lovely and I found this panel nicer than the Asus 24.5" 240hz I had.

I'm back on a Dell 1440p 144hz and the difference from 144hz to 240hz isn't that drastic, but the sharpness and clarity of 1440p is night and day, especially playing other single player games.

TL;DR

If you have the money for a second monitor and want pure speed and don't mind 1080p res then buy it, as it's a gorgeous well made monitor.

Interesting. So if you could only choose one and mainly play FPS titles, would you still pick 1440/144 over 1080/240?

If I played competitive I'd go for the 240hz, if I played more casual I'd go for 1440pp 144hz

Yep definitely.

Now if I could afford the HP Omen X 27 then that would be a whole different ball game since it's 1440p AND 240hz. But I can't

I know the feeling. I'm using an LG 32 inch 1440p 75hz monitor. I'm used to the size now so I'd have to go 32inch 240hz, I'm scared to think what the prices are if they exist
I found the sweet spot to be 1440p 165hz but not bad. I've used many Dell monitors and their advanced exchange program, all went smoothly.

Pretty sure its only AMD Freesync, the Nvidia g-sync version is the AW2518H at £488 - this is the AW2518HF.

This is compatible with G sync even though it doesn't carry the official certification.

Yep very sure. Just go into the G force control panel and tick G sync compatible in the G sync setting, job done.
Ah this is perfect for my PS4 Pro...
Ordered thanks

Thanks mate. Bought it

Nice one mate, definitely a good buy.


it will hertz my wallet tho
Why buy 240Hz. When you can have 360Hz?
Edited by: "MCYounes" 4th Feb
I use this as a second monitor, it's honestly fantastic considering it's a TN panel. Viewing angles are much better than a 1080p/144hz Asus panel I had previously.

The stand is a bit naff though, definitely use it on a monitor arm.

Its way overkill for a PS4 Pro.

PS4 Pro is capped at 60hz
No freesync and is capable of 4K.

Better off with an IPS 4K 60hz panel. Cheaper than this too.

Well I suppose it will probably be good for the PS5 in the future if it supports 120fps going forward but yes I agree it's overkill for any console.

I suppose Overkill is the wrong word, it's just not the best option. For a PS4 Pro and PS5, you'd want 4K minimum. The 1080p quality on this monitor is not by any means nice to look at. I had a 4K LG 27" UD68P with an IPS panel and it was stunning on my Xbox One X and PS4 Pro, but it was no good for my PC so my consoles are on my LG OLED B8.

If I get my way in the house and get my office room back, I would like to get the Acer Nitro 4K 120hz screen for both PC and console use.

But defo stay away from this for your consoles, it looked dreadful in my opinion.
