I took a chance on it. Newegg is usually good about returns. I tried a monoprice monitor (2k 144hz) that only gets 110hz before out of range. Let's hope this one does what it says. I'll post back whenever I get it (Jan 15ish). Thanks OP

I also took the plunge and ordered one. Specs are too good not to try. Could be one of those korean monitors that are overstock samsung/lg panels that they had to offload.

Will report back too.

My only concern about these cheaper non vetted monitors are:
1) actual input lag
2) effective response time (ghosting).

While gtg is reportedly 1-4 ms, some have been tested to be higher than the refresh rate of the monitor leading to ghosting.

For example, there is anecdotal evidence that the cheaper acer 240 hz (the one for 229) 25 inch monitor has an input lag of around 14 ms.

The monoprice 144 hz 32 inch monitor has a pixel response time of 14 ms which is beyond the refresh rate.

To those of you purchasing these monitors, please try to test and let us know how they seem.

Thanks

What's the best way to test that? I have the monoprice 27 zero-g 1440p 144hz monitor I can test now for future reference.

At $50 less than a common deal on the Dell monitor I can't see why you would find this to be a good deal. I'd pay $50 more for the better name or the g-sync.

There's a $350 Dell g sync 1440p 165hz monitor?

I don't see how a monitor can have pixel response time lower than the refresh rate (that makes no sense).

I don't necessarily believe their results, if you actually see ghosting on your screen, then it is probably true though.

Its "only" 144 hz but pretty discernible. This is coming from someone who overclocked his 144 hz monitor to 165.

The dell version of the 2716 dg overclocks to 165. Not sure if it's 1440p.

For ghosting.

Input lag is really hard to test. You can't really use a dual monitor timer as having monitor monitors can introduce latency processing as well.

You also need to make sure you have optimal settings on the monitor and right drivers. Test across different games.

You can use a high speed camera to test it as well.

There's several testing methodologies for input lag and no industry standard, but to do it properly you need to buy specialized equipment.

You can do low tech versions like in thread where the guy uses his cellphone:

You'll see my post about it being inaccurate but reproducible.

Kinda hard to see cause I used my phone. Without vsync I get super tearing and ghosting. Vsync on just ghosting. fortnite ultra everything 110hz. Nvidia 1080 so no freesync. This is the monoprice mp27 Zero-G 144hz 1440p monitor (that's being returned)
