    $249 + shipping MWAVE

  • Pretty standard price. Has gone as low as $186 before.

    • Not in this time, the average 144hz monitor price is $300-310

      I got my 144hz monitor 4 years ago for $200 im pretty sure

  • Is curved screen too much for a 24" monitor?

  • this is bigger, but just wondering if 75 hz vs 144 hz is night and day even if its just normal use, no gaming.

    • no gaming? There are cheap 1080p monitors u can buy for $100 or under especially in the used market
      I got my 2nd monitor for $30

      75hz to 144hz is massive. The thing is
      if you have never seen 144hz before, u dont need 144hz especially when not for gaming
      but once you've witnessed it 1st hand, you can't go back
      but for very strict budget definitely not go for 144hz

    • Absolute day and night yes.

  • Nice find!

    What are peoples thoughts on a Freesync monitor with a Geforce card (RTX 2060 specifically)?

    Just won't utilise the feature…? Is it better to wait for a G-Sync monitor deal?

    • g sync is way too expensive

    • I'm running a HP 25x with an RTX2060 and it's great, gets the full 144Hz and is smooth as butter. The HP monitor has Nvidia's blessing I'm not sure about this one.

    • If you see something that lists Freesync, look up the model on here https://www.nvidia.com/en-au/geforce/products/g-sync-monitor... as it may be "G-sync Compatible"- though to utilize G-sync in that case you will need Display Port.

      It's essentially Nvidia's way of admitting that Freesync works, & utilizing it, but they have to reach minimum specs to be considered compatible.

      Even if not listed there, it MIGHT STILL be compatible, just check the manufacturer's website. https://www.viewsonic.com/au/products/lcd/VX2458-C-mhd.php

      In the overview, it states:

      "*This monitor is GeForce Driver G-Sync Enable-Ready [Disclaimer]."

      In the disclaimer:

  • Would this be the best/cheapest 144hz monitor for corona prices right now?

  • What's the opinion of this versus the AOC deal (when its back in stock): https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/542789
    Its $50 more for a IPS display, but you get $40 in Steam credit back

    • Definitely worth the extra money for the IPS panel and getting the option of a VESA mount. The bezels are smaller as well I believe.

  • hows VA for gaming? never tried playing on a VA

  • Thanks!
    ViewSonic is a good brand.
    Bought one for boy's birthday gift.

  • I bought this monitor from Umart for the same price but with cheaper delivery. My only issue is that I can't tell whether my GTX 1060 laptop will support G-sync compatibility(which this monitor apparently is https://www.viewsonic.com/au/products/lcd/VX2458-C-mhd.php). It's a metabox so finding specific model information is rather hard but it does have 2 mini DP ports.

    • no the monitor is not g sync. It would be way more expensive if it had g sync support

      • Not specifically designed for G-sync but in the last year or 2 Nvidia allowed "G-sync compatible" which is Freesync for Nvidia GPUs- no module in the monitor necessary.

        Read the link from the manufacturer:

        Google "G-sync compatible", essentially it works virtually the same as Freesync as opposed to requiring the module, though they still sell monitors with the module plainly labeled "G-sync" or "G-sync ultimate", leaving out the word compatible.

        While this monitor isn't specifically compatible, as in it hasn't been certified by Nvidia, it can still be enabled regardless & function as if it were "G-sync compatible". This reviewer also confirms that it isn't specifically g-sync compatible but it can be enabled & still works https://pokde.net/review/viewsonic-vx2458-c-mhd-24-curved-ga... You can find other evidence too on Google.

        • so is it g sync or very similar to g sync with 50% of normal g sync or like 99% of g sync??

          That's really cool. Thanks for the info

          • @Teemo4Life: "G-sync compatible" is still G-sync in the settings, just functions through protocols like Freesync rather than using a dedicated physical module like traditional G-sync. Only a somewhat recent effort by Nvidia. I haven't researched it much myself but I think most new Freesync monitors COULD work with G-sync, but only those labeled "G-sync Compatible" are guaranteed to do so, some won't but it appears this monitor runs just fine with it.

    • Shipping Cost will depend on where you are.
      Mwave is a cheaper delivery for me, $12.95 via StarTrack.
