Cheapest 144Hz gaminig monitor discounts, deals & offers on sale
I only have a 24" screen and I quite like the curve on mine. Can't see how flat is better unless you're doing things like professional CAD graphic design that require you to be able to see pixel perfect straight lines. For gaming, media and home use, curved is better imo.
Ouch. I'll be sure to inspect mine when it arrives then. I have the 24 inch version of this monitor with no issues though.
The 144hz version of this monitor has never been lower
Was this under 200 the other week?
Risk didn't pay off this time, dead pixel on the monitor I received this morning
It's a bit of a risk but it's a massive saving if it pays off, there are a few decent reports from previous techsave2006 deals so we shall see.
I'm tempted by the price but this monitor is known to come with issues so a good returns policy is essential.
The auction doesn’t state how many dead/ stuck pixels on arrival is acceptable and if blacklight bleed would be applicable for a faulty return. Sounds like a risk if you wouldn’t accept these issues.
If only it was 5K
Newer version GOOGLE is your friend (y)
What is the different between this monitor and the MAG24C and MAG241C? They all seems to be MSI 24” 144hz VA monitor?! It’s so confusing.
I should also mention that this XV273K screen has Fantastic image quality, I have been running it next to my MSI GT 60 2QD laptop which has a 4k screen I loved since I first got it, yet next to this new screen it's colours look somewhat dull by comparison. I honestly did not expect the XV273K to be so noticeably better than other 4k screens even though it has a professional quality screen with delta E of <1. A good treat for the eyes :)
Mine arrived Wednesday morning and really liking it so far. ( I could not run it on a high quality looking braided HDMI cable I had at my folks place which works fine on various TV's and a projector. Annoyingly I could not even get the menus to work/display while it was connected - the PC image did occasionally flash up for about 1 second. Another cheap looking HDMI cable I tried worked perfectly from my laptop + the menu system then displayed as expected ) A word of warning, out of the box the default brightness is set to 80 which is ridiculously bright, TFT Central measured it as 440 cd/m2 lol Most monitors are not even capable of getting this bright when maxed out. Honestly not surprising so many complain about excessive IPS glow on this screen when default is set so overly bright and they do no realise it. I turned mine down to about 20 and is much less harsh on the eyes and very little IPS glow compared to my last LG 27UD68P 4K screen. This was terrible at it's max brightness which is much less than theXV273K's default 80 setting, though also quite acceptable when turned down to a sensible brightness level. Saying that my XV273K does have a small amount of extra glow 3/4 of the way up the right edge for several inches when viewing a black background. I did not notice this until I searched for it and it is not so bad really. ( Honestly, WHY do high end PC monitors suffer this when not one IPS panel TV has this issue I have personally used??? ) Looking forward to getting back to my gaming PC, currently visiting family and on my laptop, so I can test this screen out for some high fps gaming ^^
That's a 1440p panel, there are no other 4k high refresh rate options at this price. Sure if you are after a 1440p 144hz panel there are a quite a few options now and the one you linked seems quite decent.
£129 at eBuyer iirc
It’s compatible as in it works but not certified
So is this compatible or certified for use with Nvidia g-sync, can't find confirmation online?
Freesync over hdmi and what range?
For me it's because Acer store.. if it was Amazon, buybuybuybuybuy (popcorn) (party)
This does ticks all the boxes that I'm looking for but not sure why i am not clicking that buy button.. hmmmmm......
This item is no longer available from the seller you selected.
Yeah I received an email telling me they where cancelling my order. Gave me £10 credit for my troubles lol
Course not, it had a 1-2 month delivery period and had 100s if not 1000s of orders for them. They aren't gonna lose £100k's if not millions if they can avoid it.
Was it not? LOL
But wasn't honoured (lol)
Another LIES, my order was from 8.30, confirmation email from Amazon 8.35 So Yes everything was honoured
According to the other thread all orders before 8:42 were honoured and one person's has already arrived.
Mine got cancelled and no compensation offered
Pointless post, all were cancelled so can’t compare to that.
Not at all (y)
I bought at £399.99 but it got cancelled :-( - was worth a try but they sent email apology saying it was wrong price
What's the difference between this one and the GL704GM? The specs seem the same apart from the sshd and it's 400 less?
Was it being sold for £399 Yesterday?
You missed the fun couple of hours ago! (y)
Well managed to grab one at 399 from the 9am train this morning. There was about 6 in stock.
£80 at ebuyer if you can put up with it being white instead of black. Suspect black one's price'll drop soon too. White version (same model no.) claims only 75hz though.
you wont tell the difference between 1ms and 4ms. refresh rate is where it matters
4ms puts me off imo, there is 1ms curved for around £180 still hot however for the right person!
I have the Asus gl504, 144hz gtx 1060. Great bit of kit
Yup screen is IPS with 100% SRGB. Looks like the price has gone up.
I'm also in the market for a laptop with these specs, please let me know how it performs. I'm just worried about throttling as I have long sessions over the weekends. Also, is the screen ips?
Done my research on that extensively, there is a model from ASUS (503 15 inch) that has over heating issues, the only BSOD issues for this model are originated from 2 person on reddit, 1st guy had SSD driver issues that was fixed by Samsung Evo drivers, second guy tried to down clock CPU but couldn't keep it stable. I have ordered, so I will let you know if there are any
Stay away from this laptop. Even at this price point, sheer number of BSOD issues resulting from poor cooling...this laptop is not fit for purpose.
You wont find a better 144hz under 200. Also available at scan for same price https://www.scan.co.uk/products/236-acer-ed242qr-fhd-monitor-va-1920x1080-144hz-freesync-4ms-100m1-250cd-m-hdmi-dp-dvi?gclid=EAIaIQobChMItMjcyIur4AIVArTtCh1PTAA8EAQYASABEgJ36fD_BwE
I won't expire as you can still order it but thanks for letting me know :)
No more available for prime it says dispatched 2/3months
Most I've seen are TN panels, this is VA, which I prefer. I can't say as I've not had one (y)
Is this actually a good bit in comparison to other models same price range? I’ve been half in the market for a decent screen about this size, should I bite
Gone up to £399.99 now (horror)
Played for around 3 hours yesterday with Freesync off and no blackouts...
Yeah it happened again last night so I've turned off freesync see if it makes a difference!
Thanks, I'll do the same and let you know. Cheers.
Yeah I have it enabled on my Xbox one! I'll play more today and see if it happens again
Heated, lots of monitor for the money.
Nice find, heat :)
Im sure the standard price of these has gone up, i picked one up 6 month ago for just over £500 and wasnt on sale
Not really. 1440p is ideal for people around the GTX 1070 range. You might pull slightly lower FPS on brand new games though so might have to turn shadows and lighting down. Since posting this deal I've decided not to bite at this price, despite it being the lowest it's been in months. I'll wait until it drops below 600 I think.
Is this overkill for someone with a MSI GTX 1070? looking to upgrade but not sure if the gpu would be wasted with this..
How's that then? Everyone knows that 1440p 144hz is the sweet spot for gaming so it would make sense that monitors of this build quality would be this expensive, especially as an IPS Panel with low response times. If you want the best you have to pay for it. Much like Ferrari's are massively overpriced as they essentially do the same as a Ford Fiesta but it doesn't stop people from buying them, because they want the best.
Massively overpriced tech imo, they're just cashing in on "Gamers" gullibility.
The freesync model is a tenner more and generally better since it's newer. Check reviews, the gsync model has some issues not on the freesync model. Not to mention gsync modules are useless now since Nvidia admitted they weren't needed all this time and supports freesync
Where are you getting that from? It;s certianly not listed as one that is supported. And a cursory google search didn't throw up anything.
Yeah this looks like a hacked seller account... I've been seeing an increasing amount of hacked sellers selling monitors. Had a few orders cancelled in the past two weeks when the prices seemed too good to be true.
BenQ is generally more budget, typically worse panels and worse QC, unless something has changed of course. I've owned this monitor and even compared to my ultrasharps it looks great. Dell QC is great too.
I had an Asus a long time ago, and I mean a long time ago, but I had similar issues with overheating. CPU would regularly hit 90+, I ended up having to get one of those laptop cooling mats which helped but certainly wasn't ideal.
Get a nice cheap ultrabook that runs cool with low power cpu and gpu and then run Moonlight to gamestream from the desktop. problem solved
From a amazon review : 'Really fast and smooth, speakers are loud and the rgb looks good. The CPU heats up to 90 degrees Celsius but apart from that's it's a amazing laptop'. 90 degrees is way to hot it'll defo start thermal throttling, thus reducing performance. I have the same specs in the Asus gl504gm and the cpu goes to max 77 degrees under full load, same as the gpu.
I think there have been issues with the fx range of Asus laptops in regards to heat issues. I haven't delved into it too much, I just remember reading a bit about it. Prob fixed it with bios updates but Google is your friend... Read forums, reddit etc and find as much gen as you can :)
Can you elaborate? Is there an issue with these builds? :/
Clevo/Sager have been using desktop CPUs for years, and both GPU (MXM) and CPU have been easy to upgrade.
Think it's the 15-dc0022na
do you have 15-dc022an?
I went with the hp omen 15 i7 8750h gtx 1070 maxq 16gb ram with 1080p 144hz gsync (gsync is brilliant on my 34 inch ultra wide would definitely miss it if I didn't have it on my laptop which the aero that I was also considering doesn't) for £1500. That in itself was great value for the spec (it is bezel less and relatively light too). Though a series of Amazon delivery f ups (£100 gift card for my inconvenience) and also slight backlight bleed that I don't really notice (15% refund as they were out of stock at the time so couldn't replace) meant I managed to get it down to £1175 after gift card balances and partial refund.
On the lookout for one. Then will get rid of my desktop with 1080ti but keep my predator 4k for when I game at home. I like the style of this. But eyeing up the oddysey from Samsung with 2080 :/
