about 240hz
Germany urmym1rror 
60hz = 1000/60 = 16.6ms delay 75hz = 1000/75 = = 13.3ms delay 120hz = 1000/120 = 8.3ms delay 144hz = 1000/144 = 6.94ms delay 240hz = 1000/240 = 4.16ms delay 60hz compared to 75hz is 3.3ms slower 144 compared to 240hz is 2.78ms slower u get it now? can u notice the difference between 60 and 75hz? yes absolutely, but does it worth the extra money? cuz 144 and 240hz have the same difference, both is 3ms

Topics are hidden when running Sport mode.
I think at some point you don't, 240 might be too much imo.
2018-02-19 19:57
To the author: Check yourself. What's the delay you are talking about? Lol... Most of the monitors are having 1ms Response Time... And the ms "delay" you are talking about is just nothing. Irrelevant "facts"... The only delay a pc monitor has is the response time delay, which has nothing to do with the hzs on the first place.

Awww dude.. You must be one of the guys that actually also think dynamic contrast ratio has some kind of a relevance.. :D There's a lot of stuff the companies that create these kinds of products or their marketing segments create to make their product much more appealing. There isn't anything backing up those claims usually tho, like in dynamic contrast ratio that is basically your screen with the leds off to a maximum amount of backlight and the ratio between them. It can basically be tens or hundreds of billions without it actually having a noticeable effect for you. They've been achieved in scenarios that do not fit the regular or irregular usage of the said product. Usually it's pretty much horrible compared to native contrast ratio where the blacks are black while the white stays white. Dynamic contrast ratios cause black to be black on the cost of the white and vice-versa. Anyhow, they use it to sell their stuff as a higher number to most consumers means a better product.
2018-02-21 16:56
it actually has relevance... as you pointed it out. And it's pretty noticeable, even if you are on the same hz's. The thing you said is probably right, but it's not that much of a difference compared to the response time I mentioned above. I've tested pretty much every single monitor on the market to this date, and there isn't that much of a difference between 120/144/240 hz monitors. At least your eye can't see it, and people who are arguing about it - probably have never touched a monitor with more than 60/75 hz.
2018-02-21 17:20
Well, you might not able to see it when trying to but you can feel it while acting. Those split seconds are trivial in action itself which is why people keep wanting more and more hertz. Is the difference huge? Doubt it. Is it neglectable? Depends completely on the case and the person using it.
2018-02-21 17:27
you can totally see the difference going back to 144hz from 240, feels like 144>to75hz switch
2018-02-19 19:57
ok that is absolute bullshit. sorry.
2018-02-19 20:08
+1 second part is bs :D
2018-02-19 20:09
yes, I meant the 2nd part.
2018-02-19 20:10
thats not true
2018-02-20 10:47
It is true, tried it myself, friend has benqs 240hz, i was playing there for 2 days, and when i played back home at my 144hz, difference is massive. Even to at first you dont think its a big jump like 75 vs 144, but when you go back, oh boy, you feel it. I hate my country and prices here, 760eur for cheapest 240hz... I would switch instantly if i didnt upgraded my pc recently....
2018-02-20 10:58
can confirm, switched from 240 at home to 144 on lan and felt it definitely
2018-02-20 12:52
how about dropping below 240 fps? can u really feel it or it's something that you can get used to
2018-02-20 14:36
drops to like 150 are really unpleasant imo
2018-02-20 14:55
Ne moras mrzeti svoju drzavu vec idiote koji zive u njoj i dozvoljavaju da ih jase kako ko hoce...sve te cene su ti nametnute manje vise od strane zapada, na kraju krajeva ovo je njihov sistem u kom zivimo (americki) cisti tajkunski kapitalizam bez i trunke socijalne pravde...other wise yeah cs go is great game when you play it on proper equipment and preferably mostly on lan :)
2018-02-20 12:59
Ne serendaj klinac kad se ne razumes u neke stvari, have to continue in eng not to get banned. Yes i can hate the country because country is made of people living there (braindead uneducated idiots living in past, commie elders, voting for the same idiots destroying the country for 3 decades). The government imposed taxes of 21% and added 20% more on top of that for all IT related components, so its 40%. I had to drive to Hungary (isti kapitalisticki sistem btw) twice in order to get decent parts for PC... 870$total in HU for the build 1245$ same build here...
2018-02-20 15:05
U redu "klinac" kazi mi razliku izmedju socijalizma i komunizma? U stvari ne mozes zato sto prve reci tvog komentara pokazuju koliko si glup!!! Ne pada mi na pamet da citam odgovor i ako ga bude bilo posto si ocigledno budala koja podrzava ovakav sistem u Srbiji (inace znas koliko se potresam da li cu biti banovan na HLTV ahhahaahahaha za razliku od tebe, jbg izgleda jos jedan od dokaza tvojih godina), ne bi me iznenadilo i da si "sendvicar"...i da, socijalizam je bolji od ovog govneta od sadasnjeg sistema ( zapravo je nepostojeci al to je za tebe i tvoj mozak materijal za zonu sumraka da razumes) koji "imamo"!!! Zbog takvih ko sto si ti zato i jesmo ovde gde jesmo!

Stupid... you can notice it much from 60 hz to 100, 120, 144 hz but even from 100 to 144 hz it's like no notable change. Even on synced 100 hz to 100 fps its like supersmooth with absolutely no stutter and no tearing, so how can it be notable? People who might think they notice a difference are just unable to sort out their settings correctly. THAT'S IT!
2018-02-20 12:49
I can bet my life that you haven't tried 240hz then if youbare able to claim such a nonsense, or you are silver who can't say a difference between 60 and 144hz... Even on 144 there is still a small tearing and also ghosting can be noticed, on 240, implying that your pc can push constant 240+ fps its heavenly smooth, and yes difference is more than noticeable, especially when you go back to 145hz.
2018-02-20 15:09
Please try to read again mr. degenrated subhuman. Very big notable difference (subjective): 60 to 100 hz 75 to 100 hz 60 to 120 hz 75 to 120 hz 60 to 144 hz 75 to 144 hz 60 to 240 hz 75 to 240 hz Very weak notable difference (subjective): ANYTHING ABOVE 100 hz... you serbian lowlevel douchebag! I actually use a 144 hz and tested a lot with that shit, before 120 hz which was also as good as the 144 hz monitor, and before that I played many years on CRT @ 100 hz but I have also tried 240 hz. I play capped @ max_fps 143.xx. No tearing. It's just marketing and you little kidos get cought by it. I remember the times when plasma television were sold with 1200 hz (ultraquadrillion hz). Just bullshit to get ppls money. I don't say it's not technically better... but it's as useless as upgrading from i7-4790k to i7-7700k. But nevermind... you are right! ;)
2018-02-20 16:17
You're contradicting yourself. Saying it's subjective, yet make it out as if it was objective because someone else has a different opinion than you. Fucking idiot.

Sure I talk about subjective feelings. Firstly there is no huge notable difference BECAUSE i'm able to set it up correctly. AND i'm not saying that you can't feel the difference... i said it's just a very weak difference which is not worth to pay because it's more marketing than useful for the users. "I don't say it's not technically better... but it's as useless as upgrading from i7-4790k to i7-7700k.". I always laughed about ppl who said they can't feel the diff between 60 and 120 hz but now we are already in a VERY LOW LATENCY VALUE area. It's just fact, that it will be NEVER be that notable again like switching from 60 to 100, 120, 144 hz even if you go to 1 billion hz. But nevermind... it seems you still know it better! Oo
2018-02-21 12:02

absolutely wrong, 240hz TV doesn't work like 240hz PC monitors (or any refresh rate), you need to take some points like interlace stream and the fact that most of TV shows are 24/30fps and #61
2018-02-21 09:35
bro you have a shit computer then. I get 500-600 frames and I can easily notice the difference from 144 to 240.

World xm_ There you can see his gaming gear and settings, including AOC AG251fz monitor that does support up to 240Hz, yet he capped it to 120Hz (most likely because he's used to it, or his PC struggles to maintain stable 240fps for the best experience):
2018-02-20 11:18
I'd prefer a WQHD 144hz IPS panel over a shitty 240hz FHD TN panel.
2018-02-19 20:00
i bought a new monitor 2 months ago, i could go for 240hz 25 inch fhd but i went for 144hz 27 inch 2k ips, with the same money
2018-02-19 20:01
more people need to see dis, up
2018-02-19 20:05
240hz will become a stardard for gaming pretty soon
2018-02-19 20:06
World xm_ 
Totally agree with this one. It's not worth to buying it yet. The day it becomes the standard in gaming society, it'd totally recommend investing into one.
2018-02-20 11:14
ye right now you just pay double the price as for every "new technology" stuff. Makes sense to switch to 240hz when the community has accepted it and people are switching quickly, by that time the monitors will already drop in price
2018-02-20 14:32
not worth atm
2018-02-19 20:06
its a good investment in my opinion, but not if u care about the price part
2018-02-19 20:15
World xm_ 
I own a 240Hz monitor, and could say that it's neat thing to have, but not that important. The day majority of people playing the game will start to own it, it'll be much more worth to invest into.
2018-02-20 11:12
2018-02-20 10:33
World xm_ 
I've used 144Hz for somewhat close to two years before switching to 240Hz and must say that 240 does feel smoother, as long as your PC can maintain stable framerate of 240 or more. The bullshit people say that "going back to 144 after 240 is like getting head first, but then being forced to give head to a homeless aids infected hooker" is not that much of a truth. It's hard to see any HUGE difference if you're swapping back and forth, but if you use 240 for a long period, switch to 144 for couple of days and go back to 240 you'll notice the change very clearly. It's called adaptation, just like with water temperature - first you feel too hot or too cold, but then your body adapts to it, pretty cool, isn't it? Owning a 240Hz monitor is nothing close to a standard in present days yet, so I'd recommend you save the $500 and use it for something much more important like taking your mom to a vacation she does deserves, or invest into something (not crypto, don't be silly)

what if i never used even 120hz monitor so i want to buy 240 straight off
2018-02-20 11:19
World xm_ 
I'd highly recommend buying. It's the best thing you can get on the market today and I'm happy with it. But the main thing you have to take into sight when buying it is does your PC produce stable 240+ fps? If it doesn't, then you're wasting money, unless you're also up to upgrade your PC's hardware aswell.
2018-02-20 11:38

ye i know i have read about 240hz alot. im just waiting for new gpu to announce and if prices will be ok enough i will move. currently im with GTX770, it can handle only 120hz so i need a new one
2018-02-20 18:06
for csgo you need a better cpu not gpu, a i5-8400 would be enough, 190$
2018-02-20 23:37

i fucking know that i just said that my gpu can't produce more than 120HZ due to old displayport or whatever i already dont remember

2018-02-20 23:41
World xm_ 
If you dont have 144Hz monitor, then I'd recommend going for 240Hz. If you already rockin' 144Hz then the upgrade is not needed yet, since 240Hz is way too expensive considering the fact not that many games benefit from it. In the future it'll be a go-to monitor, when the majority will start owning them.

Plebs will always says cheaper is better. Truth is, if you can afford the 240hz, go for it. CSGO and all games are just more enjoyable if you can maintain the frames. The reason pro's don't use 240hz is because of tournament organisers using 144hz monitors. When you switch back to 144 after playing a lot on 240, YES, you see a big difference and shit is lagging for the first few hours. After that it seems to get back to normal, but will still feel different. Fok the pleb. If you have the money, buy 240. If not, one day you will switch anyways. Haha

thats not true 24 fps for each eye
2018-02-20 12:43
nah that would mean that u have 48 fps vision when using both eyes. but u only have 24

Well I also had both, till I sold my 144hz BenQ. The Difference was feelable, also it was more smooth. By you saying that there is zero difference is already factually wrong and just because you don't feel the difference, it doesn't mean others also don't,
2018-02-21 17:08
just buy BenQ XL2540 and see the ZERO difference a jump from 60Hz to 144Hz leads to much more noticeable improvements

You do feel the difference but it's not that noticeable as 60hz to 144hz Atm it's not really worth the 'investment' but saying that I don't regret buying it.

what people don't get is that 60 hz doesn't make you a good player , most of 60hz players are agressive just because they prefer to peek someone instead of getting peekd and can't react with 144 or 240 , you feel like can take your time , positionning for prefire angles ... and that's what make you a better player
