Price is £470 down from £550 unless you apply code LXJUL on your first Credit order. This should bring it down further to £376, but i'm unable to verify having used it before on another product... so choose wisely and inquire first if you're considering! A Very Account allows you to "Take 3 pay no interest" and split the cost into three payments and avoid the extra 39.9% APR. You can pay by card whenever you like. Please only do this if you know you'll pay it off immediately and/or in time.


  • 25" gaming monitor with 240Hz refresh rate and 1-ms response time. Featuring NVIDIA® G-Sync™ technology and custom AlienFX™ lighting.
  • In addition, NVIDIA’s ULMB (Ultra Low Motion Blur) significantly reduces blurring in moving objects for unparalleled clarity and brightness during gameplay and everyday desktop applications.
  • For an added rush, the optional NVIDIA 3D glasses offer an escape into a new dimension in gaming reality.


The AMD FreeSync version of this screen is currently £300 and should come down to £240 on first order too.

...be aware, that if you will "Take 3" option and decide for whatever reason to return item, Very will most certainly charge you at least one of those payments and you will have to go through a hell to have it refunded (sent cheque)!!!
Other than the refresh of 240Hz, would a nice big 43" / 49" UHD 4K not be a better viewing platform for gaming at these prices?

The decision for most competitive pc gamers is 1440p 165Hz versus 1080p 240Hz. We should see 1440p 240Hz later this year too which would be the perfect middle ground for those that play fast paced shooters. This Alienware screen is definitely geared toward a very niche audience in that respect with it's 1080p resolution, most would be happier with the higher 1440p resolution and added desktop real estate for sure.

2160p/4k and 120Hz will be hitting the market soon (including nvidia's bfgd screens), but they'll all have pretty hefty early adopter price tags to boot. My hope is those screens will allow you to run at a higher than 120Hz refresh rate below 4k resolution, since higher Hz will always be better depending on the panel type (more fps/hz = less input lag = more responsive mouse), but that hasn't been confirmed.

I suppose it depends on who's buying and for what purpose!

Input lag/response time and peripheral vision will be crucial factors. Albeit, not as important as refresh rate. The sweet spot for gaming atm is 27” 1440p 144hz until 4k 144hz monitors are widely available. 1080p 240hz are for the very hardcore gamers who prioritise framerate above everything else.

No. There is input lag
Gaming on a TV is playable but the difference is noticeable

anyone who splurged on a £400 8700k will need this.
1080p is finished . Don't waste money on it . Buy 4k now

Thanks for the clarity on that, wonderful thing about DigDug and Missile Command is I do not have to worry about the refresh!!

Reason I asked, is surely ((other than the rate)) the game play would more enjoyable on a higher pixel, bigger size screen for less/equal £ for gamers ((putting aside the awful ping rates etc)) playing stuff?

Having seen an abundance of these gaming spec monitors ((obviously not running superchunkmegaping speeds)) it would be clearer to see what you are doing on 4k / 5k / 8k as opposed to squishing it all into a squashed 1440p or less one!!

That is interesting matt, so even though gamers want the best of the best, they are using a resolution that a 4k uhd can better by over 3 times? Would it not just jump to 240Hz and above for 4k / 5k ones this year & next, save having to play and squint as the screen is only 24" big ? Thanks for the info by the way.
What GPU can eve run new games on ultra at over 100fps on 4k? I own plenty 1080ti for miners and test hard test em on new hardware i buy and i could never get past 80fps on superclocked 1080ti at 4k. No point having uber fast Hz if you cant achieve stable fps

The bigger the screen the more area you have to look to see someone shooting at you.

I use a large screen for work and a 24" at 144Hz for playing games.
