thanks vm. I frequent the hardware subs and I learned something.
Do I need to say that's more expensive again?
What about the price? It is this low because it uses the cheapest, lowest quality parts. There are TN panel monitors significantly better in regard to input lag, ghosting for less than £50 more like the XF240H, ok for entry-level high refresh rate gaming and has Freesync support, but still unacceptable for colour reproduction. If you want a 144hz monitor and can only afford this, you're better off waiting another month or whatever to save the extra money for something that isn't one of the worst possible choices.
You're not teaching anyone here, it's common knowledge. The point is the price.
being a TN panel is relevant for anybody interested in image quality and accuracy. Anybody doing image or video editing as well as gaming wants more than a mediocre looking screen, whether or not its smooth as hell
