If you are a professional gamer, you would probably know that a 240Hz display monitor is one of the best (if not the best) that you can get in the market right now. Here, we have compared two of the best 240Hz display gaming monitors right now, the ViewSonic XG2530 25-inch Gaming LED Backlit Computer Monitor and BenQ Zowie XL2546 24.5-inch 240Hz FHD (1080p) Gaming Monitor.
ViewSonic XG2530 25-inch Gaming Monitor
The ViewSonic XG2530 is a 25-inch Gaming LED Backlit Computer Monitor, that was introduced way back in 2017. ViewSonic XG2530 offers an extreme refresh rate and unparalleled response. The only thing compromised here is the resolution and panel’s technology, but those things don’t lessen the gaming experience one bit. But don’t just take our word for it. Try one yourself and see. We don’t think you’ll want to go back once you do.
ViewSonic XG2530 25-inch Gaming Monitor Specifications & Pricing
The XG2530 may seem intimidating at first, but once you peel back the layers, it’s just like any other 25-inch 240Hz gaming display. Although, Nvidia’s G-Sync technology is used by Asus, Acer, and Alienware. ViewSonic is making the most of the specification by keeping adaptive sync active down to 240Hz. While this is admirable, a game that runs that slowly at 1920×1080 pixels would require a seriously old video card.
FreeSync, of course, implies two things: a lower price and no blur reduction. Though we’ve seen the backlight strobe on a few FreeSync monitors, it’s more common on G-Sync monitors. This may be a problem for some hardcore gamers, but adaptive refresh has always provided a better experience than blur reduction in our experience. What about the cost? It is priced at Rs 25,499 at the time of writing.
BenQ Zowie XL2546 240Hz Gaming Monitor
Purchasing a good quality gaming monitor is becoming increasingly difficult, as more manufacturers are releasing gaming monitors with eye-catching technical specs, curved screens, and High resolution. Still, if you have one, can it really fulfill your gaming needs? That is a major question.
Professional E-Sports players, as we all know, aren’t concerned with high resolution or fancy specs; what matters to them is efficiency. That is why we chose the BenQ Zowie XL2546 e-sports for our analysis in order to assess its true potential from a gamers’ perspective.
This BenQ Zowie XL2546 features a 24.5-inch TN display with FHD resolution, a massive 240 Hz refresh rate, and a 1-millisecond response time, as well as Zowie’s Dynamic Accuracy technology (DyAC) and Black eQualizer technology.
BenQ Zowie XL2546 240Hz Gaming Monitor Specifications & Pricing
The BenQ Zowie XL2546 has a 24.5-inch screen with a 1080p resolution and a 240Hz refresh rate, as well as good viewing angles. The first time you turn it on, it’s completely blinding, and it takes some tinkering to get the computer to look exactly like you want it to.
The color spectrum, on the other hand, is completely fleshed out once you’re all set up. Although not exactly an Esports game, considering God of War and Marvel’s Spider-Man (two of 2018’s most vibrant looking games) to be excellent tests for the monitor’s color depth, and both titles look fantastic on it. The reds and greens are saturated to a high degree, and the entire color spectrum is beautifully portrayed.
However, since this is a 240Hz Esports display, you won’t be able to use it in a game like Spider-Man with a clock of 30 fps. But when switched to Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 on the PS4, it resulted in a significant improvement in smoothness and accuracy. In the heat of war, having those extra frames to line up sniper shots can make all the difference.
Now coming to the pricing part, with this quality and performance, you can easily imagine the price to be above 30k. It is currently priced at Rs 33,500 on Amazon at the time of writing.
