Default ViewSonic XG2401 FreeSync Monitor Review Comment Thread

Viewsonic's new XG2401 may be one of the best value gaming monitors on the market; it has a 144Hz refresh rate and FreeSync support yet retails for just $300.

Going to be a busy week with reviews now that I'm back.....

My System Specs

Default

Seems like a great gaming monitor on a budget. Getting closer to my wants. Swap that panel to a 1440p IPS (or similar), at 70+Hz and I'm in if they can get it around $400ish.

That's what I am looking for as well. I'm not really comfortable with spending close to a thousand dollars on a monitor alone (even my 2343BWX's didn't cost anywhere near that when I bought them). The closest monitor I found was a Samsung 4K entry-level model U28E590D but that's $600 and I missed the sale on those. I'd really like to try 1600P or 1440P but at the moment I am not sure it's a necessity and I may take a performance hit at those resolutions running the older Kepler GTX 780/Titan series in SLI.

Default No sale.

Viewsonic’s XG2401 moves back a step with a range of 48Hz...

Stopped reading the review right there. :/
