- ELMB is surprisingly good even though it seems to lock the overdrive. If I had to guess it would be overdrive 60 since it's the default setting of the monitor. I had only heard bad things about ELMB from reviews on other models so I was glad to see it's at least a little bit useful here.
- No grainy text or anything of that sort that plagued a couple of 24" models from the previous year.
- Menu is easy to navigate and the OSD joystick is of good quality.
- Really good heavy stand that can pivot, rotate, and height adjust.
- The speakers are well, monitor speakers. If you've heard monitor speakers, you've mostly heard them all. Can't expect much from 4 total watts. The option is there though.
Also I'm not sure if this is a feature on every 240hz monitor since this is my first one but I found it interesting that Windows registered the panel as 10 bit color when below 240hz. For the people worried about 60hz performance, sorry. I don't have any equipment or the knowledge to give specific numbers. All I can say is that when I played on my PS4/Switch I didn't notice any excess input lag.
All in all I highly recommend the monitor if you're on the lookout for a 240hz panel. The price ($319) is incredible for such a high quality gaming monitor. I tried a 1440p monitor and didn't think the performance hit was worth the minuscule fidelity gain. If you're looking for a monitor you'll strictly use for gaming/browsing, I really think you're better off sticking with the tried and true 24"/1080p combo so that you can utilize higher frame rates and not have to worry about messing with Windows scaling to have easily readable text. If you need the extra space of higher resolutions for multi-tasking then probably know what you want. Everyone has different needs so I'll just shut up and end this crappy review here.
Edit: Since reviews for this model seem to have been consolidated with a bunch of other models, this is for VG259QM. I know it should say above the review but I want to point it out here just in case someone misses it and expects the wrong thing from another model.
- Colors look stunning out of the box, no calibration was necessary
- Joystick makes navigating the menus a breeze
- No "fuzzy" text or green tint
- No backlight bleed
- Extremely fast and responsive
- G-Sync eliminates tearing and makes games feel smooth even If you are below the average FPS
- HDR 400 is surprisingly good despite the negative reviews surrounding HDR on monitor displays
- 1080p resolution, I personally don't see this as a con, but I could see how it would bother some people considering higher resolutions are getting more popular
Only minor downside with this monitor is it came out of the package with poor picture settings. I had to tinker with the settings way more with this one than with any other one I ever had prior by a long shot but this is again a minor downside. Once you get it dialed in you won't have to deal with it again. I started by choosing a preset setting that looked closest to how I had my old monitor was set up and then went from there. Expect this process to take a day or two as you adjust it to your surroundings and your eyes. For me brightness had to be toned down quite a lot, and the Trace Free setting needs to be dropped to 40 or below otherwise you will have ghosting/blurring issues with text when scrolling or browsing online. This is an issue I never knew about because I never had a monitor that could go faster than 60hz, so hopefully I save someone some time on that.
It has actual buttons you have to press in, not those crappy tactile sensors you touch on accident and the monitor shuts off. Color quality is not quite as good as an IPS screen but it's still very good, the higher refresh rate makes up for the barely noticeable loss in color and if you take the time with your settings you will never notice it. Viewing angle is much larger than any of my previous Acer IPS monitors (but those were in a completely different price range at either $90 or $120 for 22in and 24in) and my wife has no problems looking at something on my screen even from a very oblique angle.
Very happy with this purchase as long as the monitor doesn't break down. I care for my equipment and protect it with quality surge protectors, proper maintenance and cleaning etc. I still have computers and monitors from the early 90's working in my basement. The only reason things die on me is hardware fault from the manufacturer such as a bad solder working loose on it's own or age-related stress such as fan bearings getting old and hard-drives which are essentially time bombs holding your data hostage. I will take proper care of this monitor and will update this review in the future if there are any problems or give an update if it's still running as it should.
