Opinions on web are inconsistent about this:
The disappointment for me is that 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.
