Where have the other 120 pixels gone? Every 24" monitor I've owned has 1200 pixels vertical resolution.
You're being conned

Not sure if people genuinely looking for a new monitor would be interested in just an HD.

****ITMA***** Our colleague may not have been conned. The monitor being referred to has a 16:9 aspect ratio.
Please check what you have, is it 16:10? if it is that will be where the 'extra' pixels are

If indeed you are not trolling, then I will tell you that 1920x1080 is the standard resolution. Also, it's not 120 pixels "missing", it's (1920 x 120) = 230,400 pixels missing.

Standard or not, more vertical pixels are useful for productivity. Heck, some people rotate their 16:9 monitors to portrait mode so they can display long documents without having to scroll. 16:10 was a standard a while back but fell out of favour about the time Full HD TVs became a thing. Some people lament the loss of 16:10 and I think that's what the original troll was getting at.

Thing is this is a 240Hz monitor. It's primarily for gaming, spreadsheets don't see much benefit above 60Hz. That makes the 16:10 vs 16:9 argument moot, in fact for productivity you'd be better off spending on a 2560x1440 monitor.

You mean 2560x1600, surely?

I just got a 32" AOC Agon AG322QCK and very happy with it. Works well with Vega.

I doubt human eyesight is good enough to detect anywhere near 240hz

Was gonna say the same... I remember viewing some YouTube videos... unless you have free money to spend and nothing else is pending in your life then sure otherwise that’s a big pass.

You definitely can. Go sit a 60hz monitor, 144hz and a 240hz next to each other and then come back.

No one cares what you doubt.

I feel sorry for the GPU driving this

Good price. I hope this is a wide-scale trend, of 240hz monitors dropping in price, just like that 240hz G-Sync screen the other day for £299.99.
Edited by: "cascadde" 14th Oct

I am a gamer but I wouldn't buy a 240Hz monitor (you may also need a new graphics card for gaming if you buy this). Quite happy with my current 144Hz set up, but this is a good deal for those who are looking to upgrade their 60Hz monitor. As usual, make sure you check the reviews before buying...

***CampGareth**** Many thanks to you for explaining the 16:9/ 16:10 situation.
I though was originally trying to explain to our colleague where missing pixels may have gone.
Trolling was not my intent

I understand your frustration. Unfortunately it was already difficult to find 16:10 monitors several years back.

This trend towards 16:9 is stupid. What was wrong with 4:3?
Maybe 16:9 makes sense once you supersize monitors. I'm curious to try a 40" 4k 16:9 or 16:10 monitor.

Is this a TN panel?

Do AOC have a 4K version?

So weird how everyone goes for these, I remember getting a 120hrz panel back in the day and I couldn't tell the difference between it and 60hrz.... plus I always had a hard time driving games at that frame rate unless they were CS or iRacing. You sacrifice image quality for it as well... I mean what would you rather? A Nice 1440p screen that's IPS/60hrz with DCIP3 95% colour gamut... or a TN panel just so you can have a refresh rate you don't need?

I get refresh rates for VR screens, but a monitor... putting your money in the wrong place.

Thank you! Someone that understands me... I totally agree 100% but I guess you are up against the nerds that have a seed planted in there head... they want the best of the best or else they’ll feel they’re just like everyone else with there 60hz

Not really, as it is only 1080p. GTX 1080 handles BF1 at 120Hz on ultra very well.

I went with a 144hz monitor up from 60hz recently and the difference is night and day. If you're into competitive games, then it's a huge boost. Plus higher refresh rate monitor tend to be much easier on your eyes over long periods. Less eye strain is always a good thing.
Adding on to the point of competitive games, playing at higher frame rates reduces input lag significantly, making gameplay much smoother.

Different strokes for different folks and all. there's people that want higher refresh rate monitors, and there's people that want higher pixels counts. thankfully there's company's out there to satisfy both consumer needs.

Heat added.

can't wait for 27" to go down to this price. might bite then.

This is indeed a TN panel. AOC do have 4k monitors, however not at 240hz.

The jump from 24" to 24.5" may not sound like much, but actually seems quite big honestly. Filled my needs.

Well on a 24" your not really going to notice the difference with 4k unless your eyeballs are touching it.

I got an ASUS VG248QE and was lucky to get it for £130 on Amazon warehouse, It's nice and smooth but getting the colours right isn't easy and I still fiddle with it... That's the main difference I notice from my old IPS panel.

Asus have good service though, I contacted them a few days after because the menu button wasn't working then 2 days later they delivered a brand new one and a day after that they attempted to deliver another one.

I have a 1440p 165hz IPS gsync monitor, my primary use is gaming. No better combo than this available right now IMO.

Will this be any good with a gtx 970

I upgraded my 60hz triples to 144hz triples specifically for Iracing and the difference was huge and even better with G-Sync enabled.

A bargain at only twice the price! £694 on ebuyer right now. I wish I could justify nearly £700 on a monitor.
