Good deal. But hope this was 24" or 27" for $50 less. 32" is way too much for a gaming monitor... :rolleyes:

If you play casual or rpg/mmorpg then 60hz is ok. 144 is only good if you play lots of fps.

Disagree.

I just got my first 144hz monitor a couple weeks ago and EVERYTHING is much better on it. Even web browsing.

60Hz with 1ms response is absolute ok for games.

I would suggest claiming 60Hz as a gaming monitor is a bit of a stretch. I'm not saying you need 144Hz (which is probably overkill for 90% of gamers), but I think we can all agree that 75Hz -- if not 100Hz -- is the bare minimum before you can call something a Gaming Monitor.

Sure, you can play games at 60Hz, but that doesn't make it a gaming monitor. I can play games on a A4 CPU with 4 GB of RAM, but that doesn't mean that's a gaming computer.

60Hz/75Hz monitors should be illegal. You can’t go back to them after experiencing a higher refresh rate. Same goes for smartphones

LOL - sounds like some of the PR for Stadia - people just don't get what streaming really is.

Don't go out and buy a consumer-level laptop - the crappy 768p screens will give you a coronary and an embolism at the same time.

And to be honest, at 60Hz at this price and size, I would looking at it more as a general use display - you just don't see these for under $250 and it doesn't have a horrible stand like the $299 (on sale from $399) 75Hz Freesync Acer.

Returned the monitor because of dark shadowing patches and backlight bleeding issues.

Lol you're delusional with your purchase. You should google to see whether human eyes can notice the difference between 60hz and 144hz, especially when you do "web browsing". It is only noticeable when you play competitive games with extremely high frame per seconds such as racing or shooting. Otherwise, i would argue watching movie on a high end 60hz monitor is better than 144hz entry level monitor.

I have a 60hz 4k monitor set up right beside it. There is extremely noticeable difference in EVERYTHING.

I don't know... I find my 27" monitor to be too small. I will be replacing it with a 32" monitor as soon as a good deal comes up
