Cracking monitor, but the stand is bloody huge.
The stand will take up half your desk be warned
Can you mount it?
Tacavas15/07/2019 11:24

Sure, check description


Oh yeah I see, cheers. Not to sure whether to get this or one for a bit more that is 1440p
Used this as my main monitor for 3 years, just upgraded to the 1440p HDR version as I loved it that much.

Great if you like great contrast with dark blacks
Why does it use twice the power than the comparable Benq or Acer monitors?
Can't seem to find anything about it but does it have VESA mount?

Both good panels but this has the edge when it comes to gaming - 144hz. IPS wins for colour reproduction, but VA is very good.

Things going for the HP:
* Better colours.
* Bigger.

Things going for the Samsung:
* 1ms pixel response time.
* Faster refresh rate (144Hz vs 60Hz).

Pixel response time (PRT) is the time taken for a pixel on the screen to turn from Grey to White and back to Grey again, this is called GTG. The faster it is, the less "trail" you will see after moving objects on the screen. See
for more details.

The HP has a low-tier IPS panel that's not very fast (PRT 5ms) which means that when you watch movies or move any windows around it will create a trail. This is called ghosting and it is noticeable. 5ms is considered a lower-end of the spectrum. Benefits of IPS includes better colours and better viewing angles.

The Samsung has a VA panel. This is best described as a good compromise between IPS vs TN. The Samsung has 1ms PRT with 144Hz refresh rate, meaning your screen spits out 144 images per second, compared to HP's 60. This makes your interactive experience a lot smoother. Windows animations, playing games, etc. 1ms PRT also means that the moving image will be crisp, clear, and not blurry.

As for HP's IPS colours. If the HP is a 10 then I'd give the Samsung a 9 (we're only talking about still pictures here). Both has over 99% sRGB coverage (with the Samsung touting 125%) but I knocked off a point for the slightly worse viewing angle, meaning you have to look at the monitor straight on to get the best colours.

Keep in mind that there's C24FG70 and C24FG73 (this model). The latter has a better stand and hardware fixes. I have the former and it still rocks.

Bottom line is, if you don't mind the curved screen, buy the Samsung. If and only if you need a bigger screen, get the HP, but keep in mind you can do better with 60Hz IPS panels with that price. The Samsung is a steal.

If you're still curious about the Samsung, this C24FG70 review is a good place to start. The review is for the FG70 model, though it's mostly the same panel as the FG73 (this model) with some fixes and an updated stand. The feature set and picture quality will be similar on both and that review goes quite in-depth.

^ This explanation is excellent.
£276 now

That was an insane discount.

I’m looking for a 144hz monitor for under £200, but I just don’t know which.
