1ms Motion Blur Reduction
A monitor's response time is critical in games. 1ms Motion Blur Reduction allows the precision and accuracy needed to play at a high level. With a response time that is virtually 1ms, blurring and ghosting are dramatically reduced to make the in-game action smoother.

AMD FreeSync Technology
FreeSync reduces the tearing and stuttering that occur between a graphic card's frame rate and a monitor's refresh rate. With FreeSync, gamers can experience seamless, fluid movement throughout games without the need to upgrade your graphic card.

Dynamic Action Sync
Gamers can experience optimized, fast-pace gaming with Dynamic Action Sync. Dynamic Action Sync is a feature that minimizes input lag so the game play in RTS games is more responsive.

Black Stabilizer
Keep visibility even in dark scenes. LG's Black Stabilizer senses dark scenes and helps make it brighter so that you can find the enemies hiding and waiting to attack your player in the dark.

Game Mode
Set your game mode to optimize and customize your gaming conditions. There are 3 gamer modes, 2 First-Person-Shooter modes and even a RTS pre-set mode so you can choose the best mode for you and the game you're playing.

ENERGY STAR Qualified
Earning the ENERGY STAR means a product meets stringent energy efficiency requirements set by the US Environmental Protection Agency. On average, monitors that have earned the ENERGY STAR are 25 percent more energy efficient than standard options.

From a color standpoint, the XF240H and this LG are very similar. The problem with the LG is that the Black is not black enough, it was more gray. I've owned about every 1ms 144hz panel to date. They all share the panel, and all have an issue which you will have to get over. at 144hz there is horizontal banding of light pixel and dark pixel every other row, on the left side of the display. It goes in about 1/4 of the screen, but isn't too big a deal when you get used to it. Currently using the XF240H, color is really good, still same banding issues, but besides some wonky display port not waking up from sleep every once in a while, it's a solid display. My issue and ultimate reason I returned the LG was because the banding on the two that I had were really bad. If you can get around that, or get lucky with a minimal banding one, I'd say why not. The downsides to the XF240H are the cheaper build quality, the little LED in front bleeds through the bezel. Other than that, it isn't a bad display. I think to get into entry level gaming, you can't go wrong with any of the 1ms 144hz displays, but just know they all have their own issues; you'll have to get used to it. Which is why I can't justify shelling out $500+ on displays at 1440p or higher with issues.

Seems like a good deal for the quick refresh rate.

Had this monitor for quite a while and loved it. Not a bad one for under $200 for a 144hz 1ms monitor.

Not many reviews out there for this one. Amazon.com only has 4 and that's like the most I could find from any site.

Would like to know if this is a better monitor than the Acer XF240H.

144 hz kills this. 10 yr old plasma=600hz.

Should not be advertised as gaming monitor with that low refresh rate.
Haha.... Good one!

If I was competitive I'd swap out my 43" 4k 60hz but I'm not and I prefer to see blurriness
