20 Best Budget Monitors For Xbox Series X
1. Asus VG289Q1A 28″ 16:9 4K IPS TUF Gaming Monitor
TUF Gaming VG289Q1A is a 28-inch, 4K UHD, IPS display with superior images, 90 % DCI-P3 color space designed for professional gamers. It also features FreeSync/Adaptive-Sync technology, for extremely fluid gameplay without tearing and stuttering.
I`m by no means a pro gamer and thus prefer the top visual graphics that my console/PC can output so I`ve looked at nearly all the 4K 60FPS monitors out there and returned my fair share to which I`ve finally found the perfect monitor here with ASUS for what I`ve been looking for! Firstly, the aesthetics of this monitor instantly set it at the top of the pack as the ASUS quality shines instantly upon just setting the monitor up.
There is definitely some heft to it and the stand is probably the most sturdy I have tested out of all the monitors I`ve used. The solid base is much my preference over the wide feet that take up a large portion of my desk and ASUS ensured that the base was well made and sturdy since users would be adjusting the screen as it allows for nearly every orientation possible.
Then the other aspect that sets this monitor apart is how visually pleasing it is sitting on a desk as my desk is set up to expose the back of my monitors as mine is not simply pushed up against a wall so this was where this monitor really stood out among the rest as ASUS actually spent time on what the back of the monitor would look like! The aesthetics are not the only place this monitor excels as the actual performance is top-notch as well! I will say first that I am personally a fan of saturated colors and peak brightness and feel that most are to which this is why display model TVs at stores are always set to peak brightness so even if “professional” review sites may ding monitors for oversaturation and “unreal colors” you more than likely will prefer that setting to which I love what ASUS has done with this monitor in regards to this for it`s “Scenery Mode.
” However, there are numerous modes you can set the monitor in if you prefer standard or “Cinema Mode” and the unique aspect was that it had specific presets already for gaming including FPS and RPG versus the typical “Gaming” preset that nearly all other monitors have so this just shows that ASUS was aware that not all gaming is similar and that different game types benefit from different settings.
ASUS furthers this gaming component in that it includes various “GamePlus” aspects such as Crosshair, Timer, and FPS Counter. With most monitors in this range since they are similarly spec`d you won`t find much difference, but upon actually using this monitor you can definitely see the greater vibrance in the colors and even though it may only be 350 nits it definitely punches above its weight class in that category compared to its competitors in the same range.
Overall, I just can`t praise this monitor enough and after testing numerous 4k monitors and scouring Reddit and various other message boards I definitely have found my final monitor I plan on using going forward.
I would not hesitate to recommend this monitor to anyone as it fits every box in this price range and even well above it both in the visual aesthetics and actual performance.
QLED brings a full range of lifelike hues to your display. See game scenes straight from your imagination vividly come to life. The advanced apex of curved screen technology matches the contours of the human eye for epic realism.
As much as I intended for this to be my gaming monitor, I wound up using my TV for gaming instead (since it was 55 inch, 4K 120hz), and this became my work from home monitor. The huge screen size and 1440p resolution mean I can snap two windows left and right and multitask easily.
The curve also feels natural. The stand is very wobbly and would benefit from a wall mount perhaps. Could also be my desk as well, my new desk is more wobbly than my old. Even typing this review right now the monitor wobbles some, but I’ve gotten used to it.
Most of the upper tier features of this monitor require displayport instead of HDMI, so for the highest refresh rate and VRR and such. I have it hooked up to my laptop through a DP-to-USB-C cord (v1.
5 of DP) and it supports all settings this way; connecting to laptop via HDMI did not. Also, when I put the laptop to sleep, the monitor will shut off, but when I wake the laptop every morning, I have to manually turn the monitor back on, it won’t automatically turn back on when the laptop wakes up.
Samsung seems to be one of the few brands that doesn’t do this and I don’t know why they don’t consider this to be a default function that every monitor across all price ranges should have. For Samsung, monitors often have to be physically unplugged and plugged back in to auto turn on or switch source input.
Strange. It is this lack of automatically turning on which loses it one star for me. Otherwise, it’s a great monitor.
You can tilt the monitor for the most comfortable viewing experience, and even mount it to the wall. 165Hz Refresh Rate. 25″ LED 1080P Monitor1920 x 1080 High Resolution Up to 165Hz Refresh RateAMD FreeSyncTM Compatible2 x HDMI Ports, 1 x Display Port.
My picky and honest review: The only good thing about this monitor is the 165hz. It does feel like butter when your playing a game but the colors are very flat and dull, and it’s only 1080. I had an expensive Asus ROG 3560×1440 monitor before this and unfortunately it had lots of dead pixels that eventually left green lines across the screen.
I need the 165hz so I got this lil’ guy thinking it would suffice. but I’m not sure I’m even gonna keep it even though it’s so affordable. Like I said, the colors are very dull. And it just feels like old technology, 1080 is simply blurry compared to 1440.
It’s a massive difference and it spoiled me. And then theres little things like the logo is a cheap sticker on the frame and mine peeled off within 10 min. The stand isnt adjustable at all. And lastly, the menu is annoying to navigate.
So, yes, it’s a decent budget monitor for gaming if a sharp/high-res picture isnt necessary for you. And NO, it isn’t G-Sync compatible like some reviews say, just AMD freesync.
I’m using a GTX 1060 6gb and experience some flickering with g-sync enabled (using newest drivers which allow it on freesync panels) but only in certain games, usually those with large bright areas such as menus and character customization screens.
Most games are fine. I am not deducting an egg for this as obviously this is not a g-sync panel or on Nvidia’s list of tested monitors. If you are using this with an Nvidia card with variable refresh rate enabled expect to spend some time tweaking things to get it working well.
I had to email tech support to find out what the freesync range was when this spec should be listed. Disclosure – I bought this before Nvidia announced they were allowing G-sync to work of freesync panels, this feature did not factor into my purchasing decision, I’m just happy it works.
Great high refresh 1080p monitor. Low cost good quality. If youre looking for a high refresh rate freesync monitor look no further this is a very good buy. Just dont expect too much from the speakers and buy external ones.
With an immersive curved screen and 165 Hz refresh rate, the ViewSonic VX2718-2KPC-MHD provides a stunning viewing experience. The monitor has been designed with a 1500R curved and borderless panel for an immersive experience.
A high 165 Hz refresh rate delivers smooth animations with minimal input lag while Adaptive Sync virtually eliminates screen tearing and stuttering for a fluid gaming experience. With 1ms MPRT response time, the monitor delivers unprecedented screen quality and speed.
VX2718-2KPC-MHD is also equipped with ViewSonic’s exclusive ViewMode presets, which offer optimized screen performance for different home entertainment applications, such as watching movies, editing, or playing video games.
In addition, a DisplayPort and two HDMI inputs offer flexible connectivity for both general use and entertainment.
This monitor is so close to being perfect for the price range. However, it has some downsides. The two downsides are the brightness and adaptive sync. Brightness is quite low. I had to have it at 100%, even in the evening, to get a vibrant image.
Secondly, the adaptive sync doesn’t work properly with G-SYNC. Yes, it isn’t G-SYNC certified, yet I hadn’t came across a monitor with FreeSync that doesn’t work with G-SYNC and I have had multiple models over the years.
It constantly flickers with brightness and is unusable with G-SYNC enabled which defeats the purpose of a gaming monitor. I was unable to test with a Radeon card as I have a RTX 3070. Interestingly, it has adaptive sync and not FreeSync which might be why it isn’t working.
Other than that the response time is okay. In game it was fine and smooth. Reviewers and some tests show some blurring and black smearing though. Yet, this is the extreme and again not noticeable in game.
The stand is okay as well despite not having much movement. I would say this would be a good monitor if you’re not fussed about the brightness and will be using it in a dark room and you don’t use G-SYNC.
It may work with FreeSync. Overall build quality was good for the price and the image is clean and crisp. I had to return it though due to the G-SYNC issue. If this worked I would have kept it.
Overall, I’m really happy with my purchase, this product just has a few shortcomings, mainly being the speakers. I didn’t expect anything amazing when I decided to buy this display, but I like to stream content without the need for headphones and that just isn’t a possibility here.
If they would’ve included slightly more powerful drivers, they would be passable, but, in my opinion, they would have been better off leaving the speakers out altogether. However, despite my complaints, this unit definitely does my setup justice and paired with a set of quality desktop speakers, would provide a very nice experience when gaming and watching content.
I absolutely love this monitor but I did run into one minor hiccup. The monitor is advertised as having a 165hz refresh rate when plugged in via DisplayPort. They even provide you with a display port cable! But when I set the monitor up I was limited to 120hz and for the life of me, I could not figure out why.
I reinstalled graphic drivers, messed with settings, even had my friend who is better with computers than myself come over and see if he could figure out why I could not access the 165hz. Then it hit me, maybe the cable is bad.
So I drove to the same friends house and borrowed a cable form him and sure enough it worked! Kind of bummed me out that I spent so long troubleshooting this when the problem was the provided DisplayPort cable the whole time.
TLDR: If you have problems getting the advertised 165hz refresh rate I suggest you order a new DisplayPort cable.
The PX277 monitor is a 27inch monitor with tons of features. The immersive 2560 x 1440p WQHD (Wide Quad High Definition, 2k) display will provide you with stunning and crisp visuals. Super slim bezel-less design is finished in completely matte black color.
The fast 144Hz refresh rate enables liquid smooth seamless images. Adaptive-Sync technology provides wide dynamic refresh rate control from 30hz to 144hz to make sure there is no tearing, input lag, and image blur while you play your favorites games in low to high frame rate.
With the PX277, you can experience your games to the fullest.
BIG GAINS, COMPACT SIZE — 1920 x 1080p monitor resolution. 5ms response time. Blistering 144Hz monitor refresh rate. You can call this widescreen PC monitor a lot of things. Wimpy isn’t one of them. After all, a cheap monitor doesn’t have to be cheap.
EXTREME SPACE SAVER — Intelligently designed to maximize desk space and give you more room to play. Takes up about as much space as a 20-inch monitor. But you get so much more. And no other 22-inch monitor delivers our lightning-fast 144Hz refresh rate.
GAME-WINNING FEATURES — AMD FreeSync and G-SYNC compatibility for liquid-smooth action. GAMEPLUS targeting crosshairs for improved aim on any game. Display optimizations let you adjust the screen for optimal viewing on demand.
CONNECTIONS FOR DAYS — With a 3. 5mm audio out, high-performance DisplayPort and two HDMI, monitors like the GFV22CB becomes more than just your computer monitor. It becomes your ideal command station, able to connect to the devices you need.
EVERY SEAT = THE BEST SEAT — Our updated stand is every bit as stable as it is unique. But we understand not everyone likes monitor stands. So we made it easy for you to mount it to a wall or VESA monitor mount, making every seat the best seat in the house.
The monitor arrived on time with the schedule. The display came with the DP cable included, something other manufacturers don’t usually do, even though their displays can’t do 144hz without the DP cable, this is a huge pro with Viotek.
I’ve always had TN displays before, and jumping from TN to VA is a big step up, the colors are vibrant, the viewing angles are way better than in TN, overall great experience, could tell the difference the moment I plugged it in.
Last but definitely not least, the 144hz refresh rate looks and feels astonishingly good, I’m definitely not going back to 60hz after playing games at 144hz, the difference is superb. If you can get this monitor for retail price (140$), then it is a no brainer and you should definitely invest on it.
This is a true 144hz monitor (might have to go into the display settings to enable) and supports the Sync technologies. Sure it’s only 22″ but it’s literally the only monitor I’ve been able to find with this kind of refresh rate at that size.
For me it’s the perfect travel monitor that doesn’t skimp on the performance I want. 1080p is plenty in most situations and it’s perfect for the size of this display. Highly recommend for even a primary monitor at the ~$160 price range; you’ll be hard pressed to find many 144hz displays with G/FreeSync at this price.
About the only negative I can come up with is that the VESA mount in the back is a little difficult to navigate since the stock mounting solution relies on this sort of metal nub that sticks out, which interferes with most VESA mounts.
You’d have to use some kind of long stand-offs for the VESA plate if it doesn’t have room to allow that nub to pass through the middle (most mounts don’t).
Experience a new level of visual performance and upgrade your gameplay on the ViewSonic ELITE XG321UG gaming monitor. Featuring Mini LED technology, a pixel-dense 4K Ultra HD screen and VESA DisplayHDR 1400 certification, this 32″ monitor renders new gaming worlds in stunning clarity.
Decimate opponents and annihilate the competition with NVIDIA Reflex, which provides precision accuracy down to the millisecond. Plus, with a rapid 144Hz refresh rate and a 3ms (GTG) response time, this monitor delivers ultra-smooth gameplay with reduced ghosting.
Excellent monitor! Compared to my 6 year old NEC MultiSync EA275UHD, the picture quality is so much better. I’m not a gamer, so I was looking for a bigger (32′ or 34′) diagonal and 4K @something better than 60Hz, mostly for coding and internet surfing, with decent picture quality.
As an unseen player, monitor is often being underestimated. The truth is monitors form as a synergistic effect and bring out the best performance of PC components. Gigabyte gaming monitors offer the ultimate specifications and quality, users can truly enjoy upscale performance without the need for extravagance.
I bought this monitor to replace an ASUS TUF Gaming VG24VQ I’ve owned for 3 weeks or so. This G24F monitor is leaps and bounds better than the ASUS one (and it’s worth mentioning that the ASUS one is a VA panel).
I’m using this monitor to work during the day, and then play at night and it has been working great for both scenarios. Colors are nice and bright, text is nice and crisp, and best of all NO BLURRY IMAGES.
The stand is pretty solid and its height is adjustable, which is very nice. I’ve been testing the monitor by playing an assortment of games: Hades, Void Bstards, Halo MCC, Rocket League, SMB3, and Nier: Automata.
I had played these games as well on the ASUS monitor. On the ASUS any camera movement felt like the image was a lot blurrier than with the G24F. In games like Hades and Void Bstards, where the colors are a lot brighter and the art style tends to have thicker black lines, you can really see those blacks leave a trail behind.
The G24F had none of these issues. I was even getting headaches while playing with the ASUS monitor, something I haven’t experienced with the G24F. As mentioned in the Cons section, I did have to install a program and connect the monitor via USB to be able to change the settings because to me the controls and settings were almost impossible to set in the monitor.
However, if you’re into profiles and such, the software lets you set up different profiles and bind hotkeys to them if you want to switch between refresh, brightness, contrast, etc. Monitor came with an HDMI cable, a Display Port cable, and 3 different AC adapters (I’m guessing to cover the different plugs used around the world).
I would not hesitate to buy another one of these if I ever need to either replace my second monitor or if one of my kids asks for a high refresh monitor. Very happy with my purchase.
This monitor is amazing. I love the high refresh rate first and foremost. The colours are deep and beautiful. Its the best one on the market rn. If youre considering it, get this monitor. Something weird about the one I was sent is it can output 4K? Its at 60hz but its actually 4K.
Nowhere is the advertised, mentioned, or said. Ive looked everywhere and no one has reported this. In case it was a mistake by the manufacturer, dont expect it to come with anything other than 1080p in a buttery smooth 170hz.
I dont know if comments are on Newegg but if they are lmk if youve had a similar experience. (I was able to change it in the windows system settings under the display tab).
I just got my pc last year so Im new to the gaming scene. I wanted a nicer monitor since the one I had was free and much older then my pc. So with some help from knowledgeable friends I found this monitor that fit my budget, and the quality increase so I could game in higher definition.
What better day then Black Friday weekend! I love it! Its perfect, for my needs only complaint I have is it doesnt come with speakers. The shipping was fast and Secure.
Open-Box — The Sceptre C275B-1858RN is a Curved 27” Slim Monitor with a higher refresh rate, fast response time, built in speakers and all the ports you will need to connect your devices. The 1800R Curved FHD (1920 x 1080) display paired with the Vertical Alignment (VA) panel will provide an immersive viewing experience and a higher contrast ratio and refresh rate.
The 165hz Refresh rate will allow image changes to happen faster and smoother than standard and reduces screen tearing. AMD FreeSync compatibility will make motions even smoother.
Firstly This monitor is packed well. My monitor shipped from Cali and I live in Ohio. No dents or marks on the box and no dead pixel. Guaranteed. Bought from Newegg. Needs a couple tweaks but is for the most part a really nice monitor for the price.
You may need to install a better driver to run more in depth pixel tests and to get more precise results, but after the optimization (even using base menu right out of the box) you will be pleased. Easily pushes 144Hz after tweaks on games that allow this.
Overall a solid B+ quality monitor and definitely recommend at the price point.
– Good budget monitor with the necessary features. It comes down to, “you get what you pay for. ” – I wasn’t expecting this to be as good as the $300+ monitors and I am very satisfied for the price compared to how often I get to sit down and play games.
This monitor holds up well enough for my gaming and business needs. If you are very set on a vigorous gaming lifestyle, I recommend forking out some more dough, but for the light gamer this will do. -As far as the RMA process: this was my first ever RMA and it went by a lot smoother than I had anticipated.
The first monitor was a bust, but as soon as I started the RMA process I received my new monitor within a week, which feels like a fairly decent turn-around.
For my first ever 144hz monitor and first monitor that isn’t a hand me down. I am very surprised with its quality. Images are very beautiful and the slight curve just makes things that much better. Overall very satisfied with these, I had purchased two and they both work perfectly!.
In competitive gaming, every frame matters. Introducing Acer’s XV322QU gaming monitor, the WQHD (2560 x 1440) resolution monitor that can keep up with your game play. Through AMD FreeSync Premium technology, the game’s frame rate is determined by your graphics card, not the fixed refresh rate of the monitor, giving you a serious competitive edge.
Plus, users can enjoy comfortable viewing experience while gaming via flicker-less, low dimming and ComfyView display. The design saves space on your desk and lets you place multiple monitors side by side to build a seamless big-screen display.
I will say that I am not a huge expert with monitors, and consider myself pretty casual gamer, so take that into account with any possible errors I mention bellow. The monitor was in great condition, just like new from what I could tell.
I use it for my work as well as for gaming on my Xbox series X. The HDMI 2. 0 should be capable of running 1440p around 120 hz, maybe a little less frames, but I have yet to have a game that does 120 hz at 1440p HDMI 2.
60 hz looks very smooth for me and it upscales to 4k and looks amazing when HDR is turned on. Only complaint is I wish I could adjust the brightness when in HDR, because it can be a little to bright when in a dark area.
In the modes other than HDR, the monitor is kinda dim and colors aren’t as nice so I always keep it in HDR mode and have no issues. On my Xbox, I turned on 10 bit HDR, and also the 2:4:2 setting. I honestly have no idea what that means but it made it work with upscaking to 4k.
I noticed that 120 hz mode at 1440p worked only in the main menu of my Xbox and turned to 60 once I loaded my games (halo infinite, MCC, Rocket League, etc). The monitor does do variable refresh rate, so it sometimes goes down to like 50 hz for less than a second to help with tearing (thi deals more with the Xboxs power, but just mentioning it’s nice to have a variable refresh rate)The speakers aren’t bad at all for casual use either which was a supprise.
This is the cheapest monitor I could find with 1440p and 144hz, and it came well packaged. My friend who uses a 1080p monitor loved how it looked and thought I paid $350 dollars for it, so I’d say the $215 price tag is a good deal for the end of 2021.
I’d say if you’re a new console gamer, HDMI 2. 1 might be better if you really want that 120 hz, but if not, Acer did a good job here. Who knows though, maybe Microsoft updates some games or whatever is needed to get the 120hz working with HDMI 2.
0 at 1440p. HDMI 2. 1 1440p games might not work well with 120hz either.
Fasten your seatbelt, The Predator XB323U WQHD display with 2560 x 1440 resolution is all about no compromises on gaming performance, color or speed. This 32-inch (2560 x 1440) monitor combines jaw dropping specs including an IPS panel that supports up to a blazing-fast 270Hz refresh rate.
This G-SYNC Compatible monitor takes gameplay to the next level of smooth. Unleash gaming’s maximum potential to provide richer colors far beyond what has been previously possible. Experience something new.
Awesome monitor. Colors look great. HDR kinda sucks but thats not unusual for 32 inch monitors. If thats what you want you should just get an OLED tv. In order to get the max benefit from the 4k 144hz though your going to need a decent gaming pc.
Usually only older games will get close to that 144fps mark. Other than that though, the image quality is stunning even if you arent getting max refresh rates. I upgraded from a lower quality acer 4k monitor and the difference is night and day.
I believe console players get 120hz out of it with hdmi, but I’m only PC so i dont have much to say on that.
I have had many 4K gaming monitors over the years, Samsung, Dell, ViewSonicj ust to name a few brands and I have to say that this Acer Predator 4k monitor is probably the best monitor yet. The HDR mode is wonderful and really brings out the colors.
The 1ms and 144hz is awesome. Playing the latest PS5, Xbox Series X and PC games (Dying Light 2, Horizon Forbidden West, Elden Rings) on this monitor is eye catching candy and a blast to play. The visual graphics are crisp and is top notch.
I would definitely recommend this monitor. Its a little pricey, but definitely worth the money.
Having some issues when using streaming apps that support 4K. When the monitors switches modes it someone’s bugs out and the entire screen goes green and all there is is audio. When playing games on Series X and PS5, however, it is fantastic and I’ve had no issues with that.
The 24-inch G2490VX in the AOC G90 series of newly enhanced mainstream gaming monitors offers experienced gamers a ghost-, stutter- and tear-free gameplay experience in the tried and tested FHD (1920 x 1080) format they have come to trust, plus competitive features that include a VA panel, a fast refresh rate of 144Hz, plus a 1.
0ms (MPRT) smart response time. An eye-catching immersive three-sided frameless design enables practical multi-monitor setups, while smooth tear-free imaging is ensured by Adaptive Sync technology. HDMI and DisplayPort ports are further convenient ‘value-add’ features.
Most importantly, AOC Flicker-Free technology and AOC Blue Light Mode together protect the user’s vision.
My LG24GL65B-B 24″ gaming monitor has a beautiful, sharp, clear, vivid display picture. It’s very easy to set up and the range of adjustment available for the display picture makes it possible for even the fussiest person to get beautiful results.
I would agree with previous reviewers that the out-of-the box settings are over-the-top (like store demo-mode bright) but the user has complete control over that in the monitor’s picture adjustment menu.
I read a number of reviews complaining about the display port cable it comes with being short, but mine came with a 4′ long display port cable which was plenty long for my side-by-side monitor to tower installation.
You might need a longer display port cable if your computer is sitting under your desk rather than next to the monitor. The support stand is easy to assemble, install, and adjusts smoothly and easily with one hand.
The display stand holds whatever position I place the monitor in and it stays there all squared away very nicely. Not sure about the negative comments regarding the stand but I like how stable it is and how easy it is to position the display height, angle, and orientation.
My LG 24GL65B-B was packaged well and arrived with no pixel issues, none were stuck or dead. No hesitation at all recommending this monitor. I always worry when I order a monitor because so much can go wrong.
Then again, that is why I usually order from Newegg because they are in your corner and go the extra mile. Likewise, I can’t say that I have ever been disappointed by any TV or monitor I have bought from LG.
They have always delivered the performance they promised.
No joke, this is now my monitor of choice for setting up new workstations! I have a few simple preferred features and this monitor satisfies all of them. Namely, it is VESA compatible, has D-Sub, HDMI, & DP ports, speakers, built-in power supply and at least 1920×1080 resolution.
On top of that the display panel is soft on the eyes reducing strain. AOC has always been my brand of choice. Thanks AOC for such great products.
Introducing the PXC325 equipped with a 165Hz Refresh Rate, and a 1500R Curved VA Panel to provide the very best gaming and content viewing experience. The PXC325 has everything you need to meet all your viewing needs, whether gaming, content creation, or productivity, displaying a slim, bezel-less form factor design.
So far (2 days into using the display) it’s been a dream. 2k/32in is probably the perfect balance between desk space, pixel density and performance. 4k media looks great on this without producing jaggies or anything similar whilst being crisp and beautiful.
1080p upscales very well with minimal image quality loss if you’re looking to upgrade and using smart upscaling or just standard upscaling for those games that don’t support it. SDR content was washed out at first with HDR on, however (as an AMD GPU user) I forgot that my driver software has a 10 bit pixel format setting that needed to be switched on.
This cleared up all my vibrance issues in SDR content while HDR is enabled in Windows. There is virtually no ghosting, very impressive for a VA panel as I’ve owned others that do ghost pretty badly. Aside from that there are three Overdrive modes that allow for correcting this and fine tuning the appearance of objects in motion.
HDR is absolutely beautiful and turns dark scenes from a washed out mess into nice, deep blacks. This makes horror games or darker titles significantly better to game on. Even on SDR. If you’re looking for an affordable package that ticks all the boxes and seems to be a jack of all trades, this is the display for you.
I can’t think of any downside to this display as it stands currently, and this is after extensive testing in various forms of media (HDR movies and games to SDR games, old games, new games, etc) However I will caution anyone on the fence of a freesync/gsync display, there is flickering that will occur when your frame rate drops below 60fps, as this pushes the screen below 60hz and causes a noticeable flicker.
This has happened with all freesync displays I have used. You can simply fix this by turning freesync off, but it can be a pain at times. If using AMD hardware I believe you can set freesync off for specific titles so if you are playing something that has a locked framerate or you can’t run particularly well but still wish to play, you can always set freesync off for that title and turn vsync on.
Lastly, Thank you Pixio for producing quality, affordable display options. So far I do not regret my purchase, and offering a 3 year warranty with the product was a sign of trust in your build quality.
If this display lasts, you will definitely be my go-to for any future display needs.
Overall as a day one review, this seems like a pretty good monitor. It’s easy enough to setup once you figure out the menu button on the back. The button itself is somewhat difficult to use due to it’s location on the rear of the monitor instead of the side or bottom edge.
I don’t have a very good understanding of how to use/tune free-sync yet, but after using only 60hz monitors forever, it’s very nice having much higher refresh rates. The bezel is very thin, but there’s a good 1-1.
5cm gap between the edge of the picture and where the bezel starts. This might be a setting I haven’t found yet though. The biggest downside of this monitor for me is the stand. It’s terrible. The attachment point on the rear is a little loose and the monitor isn’t level without some adjustment.
I put a piece of silicone under one of the mount feet to level it out. And the feet are absurdly long at 10in or 25. 5cm, taking up less and more desk space at the same time. It’s also a somewhat tall stand, at 3.
8in or 9. 6cm. For a monitor selling at $309, the height should be adjustable. Luckily I bought it for much cheaper on sale. But if I had paid full price, I would be more displeased with this. Day one impression, is a solid 8/10.
I am very Disappointed, it was not until I hooked everything up and went online to find out why there was no sound that I was informed there are no built in speakers. I can not believe that a smart setup like this would come without speakers.
For myself it defeats the purpose, now I have to either use my bluetooth speaker which requires me to setup everytime I turn the speakers back on, or purchase another item (speakers) and plug them directly into my desktop and have to manually turn them on and off.
Not that I am lazy, or stupid, but I could have sworn we were in to twenty first century, I mean the monitor works nice as it comes on and shuts down automatically, I assumed it also had built in speakers.
Very Disappointed, they should have let you known this, or even wrote it on the box, or gave instructions that said there were no built in speakers. And why is the a Setting built into the monitor that has a mute and volume when there are no speakers.
I guess that is for the port where you would have to buy speakers to add?.
As an unseen player, a monitor is often being underestimated. The truth is monitors form as a synergistic effect and brings out the best performance of PC components. GIGABYTE gaming monitors offer the ultimate specifications and quality, users can truly enjoy the upscale performance without the need for extravagance.
KVM feature allows you to control multiple devices via one set of keyboard, video, and mouse. With our exclusive KVM button, you’ll find switching devices cannot be any easier! Quick like a snap!.
I bought this monitor from Newegg on 4/1/22, received it on 4/4/22, and started experiencing problems with it on 6/6/22. First thing I noticed was that the monitor would sometimes no longer turn on with an active input.
The “no signal” message would go away and the LED would go from blinking to solid, but no image would appear. This was inconsistent but would regularly happen when turning on my PC, waking up my PC after energy saver turned off the display, or when connecting/disconnecting my work laptop.
At the same time I started noticing flicker when running at 60Hz (with my work Macbook connected), which was particularly noticeable with white backgrounds, and it started giving me major eye strain.
When scrolling web pages, text would often show some ghosting on the red channel in particular. This was confirmed by the UFO blur trail test where a red vertical bar would appear after the white line.
(https://www. testufo. com/blurtrail#foreground=FFFFFF&background=000000&thickness=1&height=480&ppf=16&separation=1000) I compared this to my wife’s cheapo $250 Dell monitor to make sure I wasn’t my laptop and it’s totally fine.
Thirdly, I also noticed the monitor seemed brighter than usual so I went to adjust brightness and lo and behold, the brightness control is now also broken and 0 and 100 look exactly the same. So it seems pretty clear that some internal component is no longer working correctly.
It’s not like this monitor even saw a ton of use. I was away for a couple of weeks in May so realistically this saw at most 1. 5 months of use at 10-12 hours a day. If Gigabyte support was amazing this would just be a small inconvenience, but after almost a week of back and forth and spending well over an hour of my time describing the issue, taking and uploading videos to show the problems, they finally approved my RMA.
But apparently now I’m going to be out $50 to ship this thing back to them and be without a monitor for who knows how long while they service it FOR A PROBLEM THAT ISN’T MY FAULT. Better companies will typically send you a replacement before you send the defective product back and cover the cost of shipping.
So, yeah, I’ve completely lost faith in the quality of Gigabyte’s monitors and I would encourage anyone to think twice about purchasing this monitor or any other Gigabyte product unless you are willing to roll the dice.
First of all, great monitor. It is big, has accurate color, comes with a great stand and more. There are a few areas that I feel hold this monitor back. They may not be deal breakers for you but I wish I knew them earlier.
First, one item that I was aware of but still wish this monitor had is the ability to daisy chain the display port connections. Next, the KVM USB ports are not usb3. -The KVM switch is in a place that is not ideal for a multiple monitor setup, especially if this is the right-hand or center monitor, since the switch is behind the monitor you will have to keep a slight gap to reach your hand through.
I read that the software allows a hotkey for this but I haven’t tried yet. -This leads to my biggest issue, the KVM itself. 3 times now in 2 weeks my keyboard and mouse stopped working altogether when switching back to the USB-B input.
I had to connect another keyboard a reboot my computer. Also, I noticed if my main PC is in screensaver, screenoff or sleeping, when I switch to it, it just switches back to my laptop, I have to wake my PC ‘manually’ with another device that is only connected to my PC then hit KVM.
I have decided to upgrade my old 32” 4K LG to this monitor. I wanted to have higher refresh rate and IPS. I sow a lot of reports about backlight bleeding and I was afraid I will see it on my monitor, Still decided to buy and it good I did, no bleeding! Quality of picture is very high.
Monitor gives you features to fine tune almost every aspect of monitor and it is good. Some people see ghosting , but this can easily be eliminated by adjusting Overdrive settings. Balanced gives best between speed and quality.
Having USB-C input is a big advantage over other monitors in the same class! Because MacBook Pro with M1 (Pro/Max) has only HDMI 2. 0 you cannot achieve 144Hz refresh rate on HMDI. For that you need USB-C connection.
Gaming on this monitor is just like another level! Very smooth picture, of course if your video card can handle 4k with faster than 60 fps. HDR is good, not the best one , but still very noticeable. I just played Destiny 2 with HRD enabled and can tell the difference is huge!.

This monitor is good. I like how you can use this for the PS5 and get very great picture quality. I must say, this monitor rocks. Not too expensive but it gives my PS5 the best image I ever saw. A definite must-have.
The monitor looks cool and is big. It fits my desk pretty well.
For a TN panel monitor it performs really nice in coloring, HD and response. May buy another one to have an extra at that price. Hdr performs really well. Understand, if you play video games it will only render true hdr in games that support that, otherwise it will simulate hdr in games that don’t which to me is better than not having hdr at all.
With a 27″ Full HD screen and hyper-responsive 165 Hz refresh rate, the ViewSonic VX2718-P-MHD provides immersive gaming experiences. The monitor has been designed to keep your games front and center, with minimal bezels and a clean aesthetic.
The hyper-responsive 165 Hz refresh rate delivers smooth gameplay with minimal input lag thanks to faster frame loading, while Adaptive Sync virtually eliminates screen tearing and stuttering for a fluid gaming experience.
With 1 ms MPRT response time, the monitor delivers speed and clarity so you can game with precision. VX2718-P-MHD is also equipped with ViewSonic’s exclusive ViewMode presets, which offer optimized screen performance for a variety of needs, such gaming, editing, or watching movies.
In addition, a DisplayPort and HDMI inputs offer flexible connectivity for gaming and entertainment.
I’ve bought two of these as I needed monitors with a higher refresh rate than the 60Hz I had but didn’t want to spend a fortune. These fit the bill perfectly. I can’t fault the quality of either the build or image quality, especially at the price point.
The colours on each monitor look gorgeous and match each other without my having to tweak anything. The gameplay is very smooth on these, I can very definitely tell the difference between my old 5ms 60Hz monitors and these at 1ms and 165Hz.
Reaction times feel quicker, there is little or no lag between action and consequence, everything just seems so much better. My only gripe relates to VFM and this is in relation to the fact that I bought two of these a couple of weeks apart.
The first was £149, the second £175. While the second price still represents reasonable VFM, the fact that the price rose by about just over 15% in a short time period reduces the VFM somewhat. I cannot see a justifiable reason for this other than other sellers had run out of stock, thus reducing competition for sales of these.
Purchased two monitors for my home office. Multiple times, when the monitors go to sleep, one of them has a hard time turning back on. I’ve checked the wires/cables, and everything works. it eventually comes back on, sometimes after 20-30 mins.
I do not recommend, spend a little more on a better brand.
Designed for intense, fast-paced games, ASUS VG246H is a 23. 8″ Full HD gaming IPS display with an ultra-fast 1ms (MPRT) response time and 75Hz refresh rate to give you super-smooth gameplay. Features FreeSync technology to eliminate screen tearing and choppy frame rate.
Gamer-centric features like ASUS GamePlus enhances your in-game experience, while GameVisual provides various pre-set display modes to optimize visuals for different types of games.
This ASUS gaming monitor is a great choice for anyone that wants a nice display for gaming, but is on a limited budget. The full HD picture quality is excellent, and the 75 Hz refresh rate is the minimum needed for gaming.
Since this monitor is good for gaming, it is even better for everyday computing functions. The overall image quality of this monitor is excellent. The colors are accurate and vibrant. There are better looking gaming monitors out there, but definitely not at the price point of this ASUS.
A high refresh rate is a must for gaming, but hardcore PC gamers will likely not be satisfied with the 75 Hz refresh rate, and will opt for a monitor with a higher refresh rate and higher cost. I am using this monitor for PC and PlayStation gaming and find that it performs well, with no noticeable lag.
Even though this is a gaming monitor, it is very common for people to use displays for multiple functions, so I also used it to watch videos on Vudu, YouTube and Netflix. Video playback was excellent so this display can be easily used for gaming as well as everyday computing applications.
This monitor is highly adjustable, and rotates from the standard horizontal orientation to a complete vertical orientation. I will likely not use it vertically, but it is a nice feature because you never know, and it could prove to be useful with some applications.
This monitor is limited to 1 HDMI and 1 VGA input. VGA is so antiquated (I am not sure why it is even included) that most people likely will never use it. I would much prefer a second HDMI input, but one HDMI input will get the job done.
If your video card has a DisplayPort output then an HDMI adapter cable can be used. There are no internal speakers, but there is a standard audio jack that can be used for headphones or speakers.
The Asus VG246H, while may not have the most catchy name, it has a great feature set for a mid-range gaming monitor. You get a 1080p resolution at 23” (decent pixel density), ELMB (motion blur reduction), Freesync (HDMI only – sorry Nvidia users), and other features that may or may not be your bag.
Overall for the $180 asking price it’s not a bad setup. Upon unboxing, you’ll find the stand already pre-attached to the monitor, with only the base to screw in. There’s a blue outline on the base and a textured pattern – but other than these, that’s about the only gamer ‘flare’ and it’s understated.
If you’re looking for something that can fit in a setup that’s not over the top, this monitor is relatively understated. The stand is a nice bonus at this price point, and you’ll be hard pressed to find something that can rotate, twist, and angle.
The stand is vesa mount, so if the monitor ever went kaput you could harvest the stand – bonus! The panel is edge to edge with minimal bezels and dark area. Thankfully you’ll find it has the power supply built in, so you can just use a standard 3 pin power cord.
Let’s talk ports real quick. Out back you’ll find 3 ports: HDMI, VGA, and 3. 5mm headset jack. Of course while it’s nice to have VGA for legacy applications, I’d trade it any day for a second HDMI in a gaming monitor – or a display port.
The implications of having just one HDMI and no display port mean that you won’t be PC and console sharing this display without some serious compromises. VGA is analog, so you won’t get audio, or frankly, a very good picture on a native digital display.
A second HDMI port would have offered PC & console connectivity, even allowing sharing the same speakers via that 3. 5mm output. The lack of display port here means that for the vast majority of Nvidia users, you won’t be able to use the Freesync capabilities of this monitor.
While only offering 48-75Hz variability, it’s still a feature that makes a pretty big difference for many lower end 1080p gamers. In the age of insane GPU prices, that’s a sad miss on an otherwise great feature set.
Moving on panel brightness is sufficient for gaming and most office tasks. The IPS nature of this display means that colors are well saturated and bright. Viewing angles are great as well, and the stand really allows that to show off.
Being able to rotate a display to vertical orientation may not mean much to your average gamer, but for productivity, this monitor pulls great double duty. Panel size is appropriate for the resolution.
23-24” panels at 1080p offer decent pixel density and don’t leave you feeling like you’re looking at an undersized TV. The monitor is comfortable to use and uses a direct DC backlight, reserving any PWM for the ELMB feature.
Speaking of features, the monitor sports the aforementioned Freesync over HDMI. If you have a Radeon card, this feature will allow you to use 48-75Hz variability. You can’t use this feature and ELMB or some other tweaks, but overall this is the primary feature choice you want if you’re sporting a lower end Radeon from the past few years, as it will really smooth out games that your card might struggle to keep at 60 or 75hz.
If you’re an Nvidia user, ignore Freesync, it isn’t happening over HDMI at least until 2. 1 gets ubiquitous (HDMI VRR isn’t standardized until version 2. 1). So what does an Nvidia user have to benefit from on this monitor? Well ELMB is pretty nice.
While it introduces backlight strobing (completely on purpose – it’s how this feature works), it creates a much smoother motion. This means that text that would be unreadable in motion is clear as if it were coming out of a CRT (that’s a big tube monitor from the 90’s kids).
This monitor offers 2 modes: Standard and Turbo. Standard gets you most of the benefits while not affecting backlight brightness as much as Turbo. Turbo does an excellent job, and even textures that appeared blurry on Standard are quite clear, but it comes at the sacrifice of more monitor brightness (strobing a light on and off lowers overall brightness).
I like Standard, and this is the feature if you have an Nvidia card you want to consider, especially if you’re into RTS, MOBA, or FPS games. The effect on text in motion is amazing, so be sure to consider it.
Beyond that, there are slew of gimmicky features, like added crosshairs (Practice mode. really?), a timer (could be useful), an FPS counter with a graph (kinda cool, but only useful if you’re using Freesync), and display alignment (for aligning multiple displays together).
Honestly, use the timer or the FPS graph (with Freesync) and forget the rest. Image adjustments like most Asus monitors are a tad confusing. The mix and match of what features are supported when is made clear by enabling those features, but it’s still confusing.
For instance ASCR can’t be used with ELMB or Eco, but ELMB can’t be used with Freesync ASCR, or Eco. It makes sense, but there are a lot of acronyms going on here. ASCR’s dynamic contrast ratio is ok, but it makes a minimal difference.
Furthermore, each picture mode enables or disables certain features, which is confusing. sRGB is the worst of these, while offering arguably the best accuracy, it barely lets you tweak any settings. Scenery or RTS are probably the best starter configurations, but there is no standard, which for some reason irritates me.
Some of the modes (looking at you MOBA) offer weird effects on color in general, so be wary of some of the predefined settings. The response time on this panel is rated at 1ms with overdrive on. Overall, that’s a marketing number and it’s obvious that the panel is fast for an IPS, but 1ms might be pushing it a bit far.
Anyways, I highly recommend the ELMB – as it makes this panel just about as good as a TN while offering a much better picture. Just do it as long as the backlight strobing doesn’t bother you. Overall this is a decent amount of monitor for the price.
You’re still only getting a 1080p 23” display, but you get a great stand, lots of features, a fast panel with a flexible ELMB setup, and Freesync if you’re sporting a Radeon card. Styling is understated, so you could use this in a professional environment without people looking at you funny.
IPS is great for colors, and the display is well saturated. I would highly consider this if you’re looking at 1080p monitors in general, and especially if you’re a Radeon gamer. This monitor isn’t perfect (would have really loved another HDMI and/or a DisplayPort), but you get a lot for your money here too.
The ASUS VG246H is a feature rich, budget gaming monitor that offers a lot of well thought out features. However, budget is the thing to remember because it does fall short in performance. Ergonomics and build quality – Asus did a great job – you can adjust the monitor just about any way you want.
It swivels, tilts, rotates and height adjusts with ease. You can even put it portrait mode (which I intend to for spreadsheets on a second screen. The base is solid and the monitor has good heft to prevent it from tipping and moving.
The monitor itself is relative thick and bit reminiscent of something from 15 years ago. Connectivity – Single HDMI and VGA – no display port. I would have expected at least a dual HDMI like it’s VG245 brother.
It is a budget monitor, so you get what you pay for. Picture and viewing angle: 1080P, not 4K. I would not expect it to be 4K nor is it necessary at 24 inches. Refresh rate is a gimmicky 75hz; for all practical purposes it behaves like a 60hz monitor.
Blacks and greys are not uniform and there is noticeable blooming at the edges. Contrast between white and black is average at best. The viewing angle is poor, the VG246H picture gets washed up with at angles.
Text clarity is average and could be sharper. For comparison, if I rate my LG Gram at 100% for text clarity; the Asus VG246H would come in about 75%. I think the brightness may be a component of that.
However, while it is noticeable on text documents ; it was not during gaming. Colors- Color reproduction was good with no bleed and minimal banding. Better than I expected after looking at the blacks and greys.
Brightness – Passable at best. Needed to increase out of the box and change the settings to scenery mode to get an acceptable level. Bright rooms will wash out the screen. Performance – The Asus VG246H refresh rate is excellent.
At 1ms, you will not notice any performance issues whatsoever. Far better smoother motions than expected and no flickering than I could notice. Exactly what you want in a gaming monitor. Controls and settings – Great for a budget monitor.
Many options for screen setting but not to the level of a pro monitor ( nor do you need it. ) The controls are an odd multi-button format, I prefer a joystick arrangement better. There is a gimmicky Gameplus mode where you can set crosshairs, a timer and a FPS counter – all meaningless for most gamers.
It does have a useful feature called display alignment for lining up multiple monitors. As you can see, this is a mixed review. The important thing to remember is to set the proper expectations – this is a budget monitor.
Would I buy it? No. Would I recommend it? Yes. Everyone has a budget and if you are looking for a monitor under $200, the ASUS VG246H does offer a lot for the money.
Surround yourself with the ultra-clear sights of this LG UltraWide HD monitor, which is ideal for intense gaming. With 1ms motion blur reduction and a Full HD 21:9 aspect ratio, this monitor delivers every bit of the action in your favorite games.
AMD FreeSync technology on this LG UltraWide HD monitor reduces stuttering for more seamless play.
I had bought my first of 3 around 2-1/2 years ago. I had been editing on FCPX and wanted to save desk space but have the benefits of the screen space of 2 monitors. As my business was expanding, I needed to monitor my social media channels, Outlook, and chats while working so I purchased a second.
When my business took the next step and I leased an office out of my house, I purchased this one to keep at home and took my previous pair to my office. I could not be more satisfied. This monitor is fantastic.
I should mention the advantage it gives to my MacBook Pro with a Thunderbolt connection to the monitor is fantastic! Great colors, great connections, and I would buy a 4th for my factory office in the near future.
First off, this product is amazing. There is no getting around that. It has all the features that make it perfect for its many possible uses. I purchased it to accomodate my feature film editing bay.
It’s exactly what I wanted in the width, to be able to juggle several windows simultaneously, create a long workflow timeline, and to go full screen 2. 39:1 aspect ratio to see how the film plays out.
As many know, built-in speakers are not grande. Indeed, I have my computer connected to a full surround sound rig in which to edit sound. But I have to admit, the built-in speakers have come in more than helpful than I could have possibly imagined.
They’re small wattage, and aren’t close to audiophile specs, but helpful nonetheless. The interconnectivity has been great. HDMI, USB-C, and DisplayPort was great. I had a bit of trouble with my Mac deciding to make trouble when I had my dual displays connected, and HDMI causing the screen to go blank when the resolution was not set correctly (I am not a Mac fan.
le sigh). But this monitor’s capability of the separate simultaneous inputs helped me make a workaround that got it back to exactly the way I wanted it to work. I’m so thankful for that. Every time the optimum resolution is not set properly or screen refresh frequency is off, there is a handy on-screen notification so you can optimize its capabilities.
The only drawback I will mention is not the monitor’s fault, and is due to my inexperience with ultrawide screens. I now know that a curved monitor would have been the best choice. The flat screen at this size (29″) is not bad, but even at this size, could be a bit more helpful if slightly curved.
When I was shopping, I was looking at ultrawides up to 34″, I think those would be even more important to get curved. I find myself moving my body to the left or right when I have windows to the far edges so that the windows are facing my directly because of the flat nature of the screen.
That being said, I did not find many curved (if any, now that I recall) ultrawide screens at this size. And this one has been everything I wanted and more. I highly suggest this screen for people looking for the extra benefits of an ultrawide: gamers stock brokers filmmakers multi-simultaneous-window users.
The ViewSonic VX3276-mhd is a sleek 32″ Full HD monitor with a modern and minimalist style perfect for home and office use. With SuperClear IPS Panel technology, this monitor offers best-in-class screen performance with ultra-wide viewing angles.
A premium ID includes an ultra-slim profile, unique desktop stand, and a sleek edge-to-edge frameless design, that when combined with vivid 1920×1080 resolution and dual speakers, deliver an immersive viewing experience for home entertainment, multimedia applications, and office work.
HDMI, DisplayPort, and VGA inputs offer flexible connectivity options for both computing and gaming environments, while ViewSonic’ s exclusive View Mode feature provides intuitive presets for optimized screen performance in different applications.
In addition, Flicker-Free technology and a Blue Light Filter help to minimize eyestrain from extended viewing periods. This monitor is a solid long-term investment that combines style and high performance on any desktop.
I bought a Samsung monitor and within 2 hours I took it back to buy the monitor that I should have purchased. The ViewSonic monitors are by far the best monitors that I have purchased, and I have bought a lot of different monitors.
This monitor has awesome response times, colors, and clarity. It is super easy to install and operate. The controls on the monitor are great and easy to use, they make changing the setting easy and very straight forward which is so much better than the control on the Samsung monitors I tried.
If you want quality and a great buy for your money, then look no further than ViewSonic monitors — all their monitors that I have owned have lasted for years and the picture quality never changes. The only thing that I have changed is the size of the monitors as I have gotten older and needed to work on more documents simultaneously.
I am using this screen as a computer monitor, together with a 24 inch screen and my laptop screen. I have a number of complaints with this screen: – the initial white colour was very red compared to the other screens.
I have largely corrected that by selecting a different screen mode and upping the brilliance to max. – the text on screen is not as sharp as my other screens. I found the sharpness setting and raised it to maximum and it is now almost as good as the other screens, but I can still tell the difference.
– I have been unable to achieve the recommended screen resolution of 2560×1440. This is still unresolved. Having made those adjustments, the screen is working well. I note that the screen is “edge to edge”, that is the glass is edge to edge but the picture is not.
There is a 5mm black edge to the glass. It’s still quite thin and doesn’t impede sticking screens next to each other. Would I still buy it if I knew all these things? Not sure.
I love this monitor. I work contract and a company gave me a monitor to use, think it was the one right below this model, but saw the thing that it was supposed to help your eyes looking at a screen for 8 hours a day.
I got another assignment and they gave me Dell. This monitor is much better than the Dell in viewing and I use my monitor as my main monitor and the Dell as my 2nd (3rd if you count the laptop) monitor.
The color is nicer than the Dell too (although like the monitor stand for the Dell, it’s adjustable, this one isn’t. The only thing I’d rate this monitor as a 1-2 stars is the sound. It’s pretty awful.
The tone doesn’t seem too bad, but it’s so quiet it’s not worth changing your computer/laptop speakers over to it. It sounds like it comes from the back, so unless that’s where you need them, not worth changing over.
I don’t think most of us buy monitors for their sound anyways, so it’s pretty much a non-factor.
Whether you are a gamer or a movie buff, the Sceptre E249W-19203R monitor is the way to go. 1080P resolution (1920 x 1080 Pixels) delivers stunning color and picture detail on a 22 inch screen. A 5 millisecond response time displays action sequences with the highest degree of clarity.
Enjoy HDMI, and VGA inputs to connect all video and gaming devices. Dimensions With Stand (Inches)21. 45″ x 15. 67″ x 6. 57″ Without stand (inch, W x H x D)21. 45″ x 12. 52″ x 1. 24″ Packaging Dimension (inches)23.
88″ x 15. 50″ x 3. 75″ Weight with stand5. 77 lb without stand6. 37 lb Gross Weight (Esti. ) 9. 17 lb.
The stand in non adjustable for tilting the monitor screen. This makes it difficult to get a clear picture unless you are having the monitor higher than normal because it automatically has a downward tilt to it.
Also the built in speakers using HDMI can hardly be heard at all. If there is any room noise at all I can’t hear the monitor sound. I am going to get a different VGA cable and hook up external set of speakers.
-Don’t buy it. It is that bad. My kids have a 32-in Avera 720p LCD TV for their monitor, and in every way except for a seeing slightly more pixels, the $99 32-inch 720p tv makes makes a better monitor.
I am not going to send it back for the hassle, but I may never buy a monitor online again after this experience. Helpful Hint: I settled on the below Picture settings: Contrast: 72 Brightness: 17 DCR: ON (Dynamic Contrast Ratio) Why did I choose these settings? The contrast ratio Darkened the darks and made small text easier to read.
Increasing EITHER brightness or contrast ratio above around upper 30’s will leave your monitor both dark and washed out. Contrast ratio has less effect on washing out while lightening whites and darkening darks.
The key is to keep brightness as low as it can go without making the picture hard to see. THEN turn DCR ON. The DCR as far as I can tell lightens the lights further, without hurting the blacks too much.
Finally, using NVidia control panel I was able to color correct to “loosely approximate” my (FAR SUPERIOR) ASUS monitor that I also bought from Newegg. Now the monitor is a bit darker and the colors are less “pastel” or solid looking (like an 80’s photograph in comparison to a modern SLR camera) but if you have nothing to compare it to, you could wrongly think that this was a great picture, which explains all the baffling good reviews on this product.
After finally settling on this adjustment, I would recommend to stay very close to my above recommended settings, and for $90. 00 and free shipping and no sales tax, this monitor is almost worth $90.
00. For that reason I am updating my review from 1 to 2 eggs. I cannot give it 3 eggs because that would indicate a good value or an average product. This is a useful, but rather low quality display, albeit at a low price for $90.
Features are 4+ but value gets it the 5th star. The monitor includes 2 ports for HDMI, as well as VGA+3. 5mm audio in (video+ audio connectors, common on older laptops), The speakers are adequate but nothing to write home about.
A full set of monitor adjustments is handled by buttons near the on/off switch underneath on the right. The base allows the monitor to tilt about 5 degrees forward or as much as 15 degrees backward – just push carefully along the edges – friction holds it in place after adjustment.
The base is removable, but the socket for the base on the bottom of the monitor protrudes a bit after the base has been removed. The monitor also has screw holes with 100 mm spacing for a VESA mount on the back.
I have tried the monitor with 3 different computers. Two simple, modern computers, Raspberry Pi running Raspbian Linux and Asus Chromebox, connected quickly and flawlessly without any intervention on my part, as did a 2015 mid level Toshiba laptop that was built for Windows 8 and is now running Windows 10.
In all cases, I turned on the monitor before starting the computer so the computer operating system could “see” the monitor while it was starting up. The manual instructions also include Windows 7 and suggest connection will work best if the computer resolution can be set to 1920X1080.
