[Amazon.ca] Prime Day: Acer QHD 32" 60 Hz IPS monitor $249

https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B07X6KJKNZ/
https://www.acer.com/ac/en/CA/content/m ... .JE1AA.C01

I was looking for something with similar DPI to 1080P 24 inch but in a 32 inch.

No frills monitor - 60 Hz - no speakers, no USB, Freesync, etc. Not for gaming.

But 3yr warranty and IPS makes it great for WFH use at a $250 price point.

I have this one and it's really good for everyday use. I got it on sale at Canada Computers for 288+taxes a while back.

IPS so viewing angles should be good. Says 178 degrees horizontal and vertical. I just ordered mine today, so no personal experience.

Why is it not good for gaming? It says 4MS and flicker free?

It's not that it's bad for gaming. I'm not a gamer, but sure, will play games on it. It will be better than the screen I'm replacing.

But if you're a gamer, you've probably spent a bunch of money on a graphics card that can push high frame rates. If you're buying a monitor, why not get one that can take advantage of that.

Yes, absolutely. Only hardcore competitive gamers will even notice the 60 Hz limit.

it takes high level play to extract a significant difference between 144 and 240 hz. literally anyone will notice going from 60-90+ hz


Edit: if you play on console buy this, it doesn't matter for you

If by "literally anyone" you mean those who care enough to watch youtube videos such as this one and learn how to nitpick.
Most people couldn't care less. Also, what matters is usually the minimum frame rate that you get. So if it sometimes go down to 30 fps in an action scene, it doesn't matter if you get 300 fps while stopped and looking at a wall.
You need quite a powerful PC to be able to get over 90 fps all the time. Also most people (including me) would prefer playing at 2560x1440 @60Hz than 1980x1080 @ 240 Hz

have you ever used a monitor that goes to 90 or above? you notice the difference immediately. can you game on this monitor? yes, obviously. and literally no one who is shown monitors at 1440 60 and 1080 240 would choose the 1440p one. no one. if you've never used/seen one then yes it wouldn't matter to you because ignorance in this case is truly bliss. but it is poor advice to tell someone to buy this rather than saving a little more money and getting a monitor with higher refresh rates if their main objective is gaming.

Yes I have and yes I would chose the 1440p one (so you are wrong, there is at least one person).

Even if you have a 240 Hz monitor doesn't mean your PC is fast enough to render 240 fps (or even 120). Unless you want to play games of a decade ago or spend $700 on a new video card every year, 60 fps is the target frame rate for a lot of us. I'm not going to reduce the graphics settings to get 120 fps anyways, so why should I care about a 120 Hz monitor?

I never said this is a "gaming" monitor. But it can game just fine for most people, plus you get a higher resolution, which is especially useful when NOT gaming.
The cheapest 32" WQHD 90+ Hz monitor I can find is an LG at $439... This one is $250. Clearly not the same league.

i tell you this, if you browse the internet at 240hz, when you click refresh / f5 during boxing day deals, its faster.
