Looking for a monitor and came across this one. I know this has been on before for £220 but found it cheaper. Is this any good for a beginner?

£198 for students through Unidays.

Good deal compared to the price of this specific monitor elsewhere.
But can anyone tell me why this is generally so much more expensive (it is usually £280+) than other 1080p 144Hz Freesync monitors on the market? Any additional features that this monitor has over others? Better image quality?

Link takes me to an empty basket, heat though!

Sorry I copied the link then decided to buy it. Thanks for the heat

144Hz refresh rate and a 1ms response time is nice! Freesync and anti glare screen

1 Year warranty doesn't fill me with confidence though, most monitors come with 2 or 3 years.

Reading Amazon reviews a lot are from people who received it for free. Someone else said it only goes to 75hz with an AMD card? Can anyone confirm? Doesn't make sense because it has FreeSync.

You're reading the reviews for the other monitors listed on the same Amazon page. There are reviews of 4 different monitors there - filter the reviews to "Show only reviews for size: 25 inch" in the drop down menu.

  • Resolution: 1920 x 1080 @60hz.
  • Display Scan Frequency (vertical): Up to 144 Hz.


Can anyone explain the above in dumbie terms? I kinda feel I'm about to buy something worded as 144hz which technically isn't

Can you put the above in terms a 5 year old would understand by any chance?

The "60hz" quoted there is just plain wrong. This monitor has up to a 144hz refresh rate, meaning it can run at 144hz, 120hz, 60hz or 30hz, depending on which one you choose in the windows display settings.
So yes, it's a 1080p (Full HD) monitor that can run at a refresh rate of up to 144hz (144 "pixel updates" per second, which is a LOT more than the standard 60hz that monitors usually have). The result is a very smooth and fluid experience, which is why monitors like these are only recommended for gamers who prefer/require smooth gameplay (which is particularly noticeable in first person shooters and high action games).

EDIT - to actually achieve a 144hz refresh rate you will need to use a DisplayPort cable to connect from your computer to your monitor. As far as I'm aware, HDMI 1.4 (which is what this monitor also supports) can only deliver up to 120hz at 1080p.

No worries, I'm sure it'll serve you well!

Would this be good enough for Xbox One S gaming?

I know this is £198 with student discount but would potentially work out at £188 with cashback from TCB even if terms say that promo code can’t be used

Maybe you'd be better off with 4K monitor, this is 1080p, although I don't know an awful lot about the One

It’s not true 4K gaming with the S version just upscaling which works well I think, however I don’t want to spend much more and 144hz is pretty tempting.

Would be good, don't get me wrong, but this is 144hz, and 99% of the games on the XBOX One X will be running at 60fps (so 60hz) so it's a bit overkill and you can get a cheaper 1080p monitor which will run the same as this, you'd probably be better off getting a 4k monitor to make use of the 4k output on the XBOX One X, 144hz is mainly for PC gaming and even then you will only get a handful of games running on that refresh rate (non graphics intensive games like CS GO and Overwatch etc).. unless you have like a GTX 1080ti and decide to put some of the graphics options down.

Why do monitors cost so much?

No Xbox is capable of running at 144hz, for that you need a PC.

I have an Nvidia 1070 Graphics Card, Do I need a Gsync Monitor or is this ok? I want smooth gaming ect
