What customers say about "Key Specs"
Acer KG241Q Pbiip Full HD TN 144Hz Monitor
  • The 1ms response 144hz makes a real difference in games.
  • As a streamer/gamer having a 144hz monitor is key in order to keep up with all the other sweats in the online world.
  • Best yet, this monitor has a FAST refresh rate (I have mine on a refresh rate of 120) which is vital to easing eye strain and headaches.
  • Only thing I wish it had was 4k resolution, for better gaming experience with XBox.
  • Small text is painful to look at vs another brand's 144hz monitors.
Acer GN246HL Gaming Monitor
  • The difference between 60 hz and 144 hz is very noticeable you have to try it in person to really see it.
  • The 144hz is a must have addition to your game play if you are a competitive player, it undeniably makes everything you do 150% smoother and pleasent to the eye.
  • The biggest issue I had with this monitor was that it had quite a bit of ghosting on it
  • Colors are sub-par at best, not extremely vivid but I guess it gets the job done.
  • Great monitor for those who sit away from screen. However, if you are looking for a gaming monitor, I suggest looking for something with higher resolution than 1080p for this size or above.

What customers say about "Display"
Acer KG241Q Pbiip Full HD TN 144Hz Monitor
  • Colors and text are crisp, clear and best of all I ever seen in my monitors.
  • Great colors, brightness and contrast of TN panel. You just need little time to adjust it all.
  • Color was perfectly clear, and the black to white range was fine.
  • My TV killed this monitor in screen brightness and image quality, which makes this monitor useless for me.
  • I was disappointed with the picture quality of a TN panel.
Acer GN246HL Gaming Monitor
  • The monitor even has 3D on it, I haven't used it and I'm not sure I ever will but if it's important to you then that's a huge plus with no real price difference.
  • The color reproduction and contrast are superb. And of course, the 144hz refresh rate works flawlessly.
  • Performs as advertised. Sharp contrast, quick response time and no dead pixels.
  • Screen is so extremely back lit that it makes colors look unnatural and even when lowering the brightness it does not help, the panel itself is just overly bright for no reason.
  • I am still working on adjustments to get color/brightness levels correct. It has a graphics mode, but it don't believe it is true color.

What customers say about "Connectivity"
Acer KG241Q Pbiip Full HD TN 144Hz Monitor
  • Has 2 HDMI ports and a DP, which is fairly good is case of options.
  • Testing it on display port, I found zero tearing, buttery smooth display.
  • If you have a ps4 switch or xbox one with some external sound, you can use those too with the 2 HDMI ports.
  • Easy to connect via displayport and take all the advantage of 144Hz refresh rate.
  • This panel cant run at 144 over HDMI only on DP.
Acer GN246HL Gaming Monitor
  • It has 3 inputs: DVI-D, HDMI, and VGA (Please for the love of god don't use VGA). Having a HDMI port means that I can still play on my consoles if I feel like it which is very good for me.
  • Supports vga/hdmi/dvi. looks like you can connect speakers to it too
  • Came with dvi hdmi cables and perfect setting.
  • Only downside for me is no USB ports and build quality feels slightly flimsy.
  • There's only one HDMI, which can be inconvenient, but that's pretty standard on computer monitors.
