Of course but then we don't have to repeat deceptive discriptions to our members
Eh.. to be honest 60hz monitors are becoming more and more dated. I remember buying a brand new HP Monitor 60hz 1080p for £130, and that was some several years ago (and from Currys!).

Seeing a 1080p 60hz monitor still going for £100 is disappointing to say the least.

This monitor is not only cheaper but is better in almost every way, just have to knock 2 inches off the screen size:

The difference between LED and LCD on a screen this size is perfectly negligible.

If you're wanting it for gaming, at least on PC, then you'll want a fast refresh rate as well as a good response time. Granted you'll pay more but not much more and you'll really need it anyway. This is like half a gaming monitor!

If you're not wanting it for gaming then you don't need the 1ms and you may as well go for a IPS rather than a TN.
Why are none of these cheaper monitors ever height adjustable

60hz is fine for gaming to be honest, lets not pretend its some limiting factor. Yes, 144hz etc is "better" but it's more than sufficient.
Cold - its a TN panel so the quality will be awful, but its also cheaper here. Still not worth buying.

I remember buying the LG IPS234V, a 23" 75Hz 1080p monitor with similar specs to this (250nits brightness, 1000:1 contrast ratio but 5mil:1 dynamic, similar size, HMDI), for £109 in 2013! Sure it had a 5ms response time but a far superior IPS panel type and looked really good as a result (great viewing angles, accurate colour reproduction). That was 5 years ago. How on earth has the £ per spec for monitors not improved substantially over such a long time when it has for basically everything else in computing/electronics? This deal seems such poor value when viewed through a retrospectoscope.

1. "It's a TN panel." So?
2. It's only £4 cheaper and I've never heard of ITC Sales. The £80 price is ex VAT.
3. You get a 3 year guarantee on Currys whereas you only get 1 year on ITC Sales.
TN panels are all awful quality - terrible colours, viewing angles etc...given the price drop of 1080p IPS panels you'd be mad to buy a TN.

This for example is cheaper and a much better specification (for some reason it wont let me post a link to scan...)

For FPS and competive it's not pretending! 60Hz can be limiting....and if you're not planning on playing those types of games or, as you suggest, 60Hz is not limiting then 5ms won't be limiting. An IPS panel then trumps this everytime! Couple it with a cheap monitor mount and you'll have your height adjustable

60hz is a hugely limiting factor in competitive gaming.
Look at shooting games for example - If a guy is stood around the corner and he runs out from said corner, the guy with the 144hz monitor will see that animation at least 2.5 times faster giving him 2.5x more reaction speed than the guy with the 60hz refresh rate. In a nutshell the 144hz gamer should have faster reflexes in those scenarios at least 99% of the time.

Much of that is a myth. While it will certainly make a difference in pro leagues, with most people their skill will be the limiting factor and not the monitor.

Having a 144hz monitor gives you an advantage over a 60hz monitor, that's just a fact.
Regardless of whether the person who buys the monitor and plays the game is any good at said game or not, you still have the technical advantage because of the fluidity and cleanliness of the animation rendering in 2.5x speed.

Do you want to tell me why I still smash most people in Destiny 2, CSGO and COD WW2 then and that's despite only playing on a 60Hz monitor? I also used to frequently score play of the game in Overwatch.

Obviously I don't really play any pro league type stuff. I just play casually for fun.

60Hz...not really a gaming monitor unless you're using it for console...


A monitor at this price point is likely to be teamed with an entry level gaming system. An entry level system would hopefully include a GTX1050Ti or RX460 which are both going to get 60fps at best on a recent game @1080p with decent settings. So I don't think the 60Hz framerate is going to be the limiting factor here.
J_o_e_y1 m ago

Ooh you're hard.


Just proving a point. Average Bob gamer doesn't need to shell out for a 120 Hz or 144 Hz panel especially if they only play the occasional casual online game like most people do.

Rendering is done on the graphics card, not the monitor. Monitor refresh rate is irrelevant if your graphics card can't compose the frames quick enough.

You're really going to argue skill over logic?
What is it you don't understand?

Playing at 60hz your monitor will refresh itself once every second (60/60)
Playing at 144hz your monitor will refresh itself 2.4 times every second (144/60)

The average human reaction speed to a visual stimulus is about 0.2 of a second.

This means that for every second something happens on your 60hz screen, the guy with the 144hz will have seen 2.4x times as much as you and had at least an extra chance to react, despite it being only milliseconds of course it makes a huge difference when human reaction speed is so quick.

60hz - 1 refresh - 0.2s to react
144hz - 2.4 refresh - 0.48s to react

This is basic math...

I've never got the viewing angle argument. I always manage to arrange my chair and desk so that I sit directly in front of my screen. I've deployed 8 screens to single trading desk in an investment bank and viewing angle wasn't a problem there either.

Viewing angles have ALWAYS been a problem on a TN panel. That is literally the reason IPS panels were invented.

That and the most affordable TN panels only run in 8bit, with washed out colours, and terrible contrast and pixel densities. (Due to poor resolution settings)

I think almost EVERYBODY knows that a computer has to be running enough frames to output the correct refresh rate on a gaming monitor thread.

You're just playing devils advocate.

Yeah but my point being it's not therefore a gaming monitor and it's not worth it. IPS would be better picture, better fro RPG/non competive gameplay and all around more asthetically pleasing. If this is your budget that would be a much better buy!

Viewing angle has NEVER been a problem if you sit at 90 degrees to the screen. I've been using and professionally specifying and deploying LCD screens for over 20 years.

The first LCD screens I remember deploying were NEC LCD2000's at a cost of nearly £4K each. The viewing angles were terrible on the first gen TFT displays, but no one mentioned it. What they did mention was how how slim it was compared to the massive EIZO CRTs they replaced.

You can read how excited the world was about the LCD2000's here:

Your 'basic math...' is wrong. 60Hz is 60 cycles per second. This means that every pixel on the screen is refreshed 60 times per second, not once per second.

A 60Hz screen does a whole screen refresh every 0.017 seconds and will refresh more than 10 times within your stated 0.2 seconds human reaction time.

Well that's what I get for doing this at work.

Either way the fact still remains that 144hz will refresh 2.4x more often creating a much smoother and clearer experience. Giving the human operator 2.4x more chances to react.

I wouldn’t bother mate, it’s clear that most people commenting have not even used a high refresh monitor. Once you go 144hz, you cannot go back. 60hz feels so laggy in comparison, even just moving the mouse cursor.
Pay cheap - pay twice! (Unless its black friday)
The monitor would be fine for Word processing / email / internet but not anthing game related
I was going to buy this but then did a search to see that in this price bracket you can buy IPS panels of the same size and resolution but some with 75hz refresh rate.

Seems that there has been little advancement in 24 inch 1080P screens for several years but this TN panel is pretty blah when you can buy IPS for same price or a tenner more.
Lots if snobby remarks. If you want 144Hz, great get one. If you're on a budget, get something lower. It's not the end of the world. IPS is generally better for image quality, but either way a budget panel will be a budget panel.

Nothing to do with snobbery! Its being honest about it not being worth it. Budget IPS will beat a budget TN. This is advertised as gaming but the point being made is it isnt a gaming monitor. If you want gaming go for 144hz. If you can't afford that or you're not going to be doing competitive FPS gaming then go for an IPS for the same price, which will suite your needs better - be that day to day use or non-comp gaming! A budget IPS will still be better than a budget TN for everything but gaming due to its better image quality. If this was £20+ cheaper than your next IPS panel then yeah sure...but it isnt!
Good price, dell do last long time
Got to add my +1 to the go 144hz crowd. Yes, people are on a budget and can only afford what they can afford but this is a false economy.

A good monitor will outlast your PC - while you're upgrading graphics cards, adding ram and swapping out HDD for SSDs you'll probably be using the same monitor until there's a really big change in technology. It's not just about getting a competitive edge with higher frame rate, it simply looks better. It's more fluid when shifting POV, less judder and jarring.
