[Gaming] Is a 240hz monitor worth the extra money?

Opinions on web are inconsistent about this:

  • some say they don’t see any difference between 144hz and 240hz
  • others say it’s like going over again from 60hz to 144hz
  • and lastly some only see the difference when they downgrade

I bought one and I thought at first to return it since I only saw a small increase in smoothness.
Few weeks later I tried again 144hz, it feels so far behind. I’ll stay with the 240hz.

The disappointment for me is┬áthat you can only get 25″ 1080p for this refresh rate. Nowadays 27″ 1440p should be a must have for workstations.

Keep in mind that everything above 144hz is worth only if you play online competitive games. I wouldn’t buy this flashy panel if all I wanted was to play Far Cry. Also, your GPU should render at minimum 240fps.

Conclusion:
It is worth it if you value refresh rate more than resolution and display size (the max you find now for both aspects is 165hz 1440p/27″).
Also, it is more of a quality of life improvement, it doesn’t make you better at any game.
