Looking for 144hz monitor

Question

Hello everyone,

I am looking to get a 144Hz monitor. I was wondering what other people used and base my decision off of that. I just want it to be 144Hz and be 24". Built in speakers would also be nice, but they're not a high priority.

The HDMI specification defines the protocols, signals, electrical interfaces and mechanical requirements of the standard.[6](p. V) The maximum pixel clock rate for HDMI 1.0 was 165 MHz, which was sufficient to allow 1080p and WUXGA (1920×1200) at 60 Hz. HDMI 1.3 increased that to 340 MHz, which allows for higher resolution (such as WQXGA, 2560×1600) across a single digital link.[38] An HDMI connection can either be single-link (type A/C/D) or dual-link (type B) and can have a video pixel rate of 25 MHz to 340 MHz (for a single-link connection) or 25 MHz to 680 MHz (for a dual-link connection). Video formats with rates below 25 MHz (e.g., 13.5 MHz for 480i/NTSC) are transmitted using a pixel-repetition scheme.[4]

I have the same monitor that Sotar linked.  *ahem* I had it first 😋

Can confirm is a great monitor.  Can also confirm that it indeed has the mounting capabilities.

I don't have any feedback on the speakers though.  Honestly not sure if it has speakers built into it even.  

 

EDIT:  don't forget that your graphics card must also support HDMI 1.3 or higher standard to be able to use a HDMI cable for a 144hz monitor.

Just now, MadCast: Scooba said:

Correct me if I'm wrong but 144hz monitor with no Display Port is sort of a waste is it not?  I don't think HDMI can output the maximum refresh rate this monitor is capable of producing.  

I run mine on HDMI/DVI-D Dual Link just fine.  144hz requires DVI-D Dual Link or HDMI must be 1.3+ standard to handle the throughput.  However, the connections are moot if you don't have a graphics card that can crank out the 144hz to begin with.  Remember folks 144hz capable is not the same as 144 fps capable in terms of what your graphics card can output.  Many graphics cards can crank out 150+ fps to games but that doesn't mean it is generally readily capable of handling proper output to a 144hz monitor.

do not purchase acer. i bought a 144hz display from acer fairly recently (attractive price) and it sucks. it has wicked ghosting and a flimsy stand, and upon furthur investigation none of that was item specific, everyone else had the same issues.

I'll probably be getting one of these 3. I'm looking at the Aoc and Benq one specifically. I have an Radeon RX490 GPU and it only has 1 HDMI, 1 DVI, and 3 DP. Is DP or DVI better? Since I have an AMD graphics card, I figured I could utilize the freesync on the Aoc monitor too.
