Also, is 240Hz relevant or not really?
depends on how far you sit from your monitor and whether you use stretched or not
For cs 24.5 inches is better (atleast for me)
12 inch dick better than both
If you sit just in front, 27" might be too big to be comfortable.
I have 27inch 75 hz
Could’ve got a 24.5 inch 140hz
Tbh I would’ve taken higher refresh rate if I wasn’t in a rush for a monitor
If u can 27 inch 144hz + me personally
24 inch man 1080p looks like shit on 27inch, let alone lower resolutions
I sit pretty close to my monitor, since my table is small and 24" is the max that I feel comfortable with
I have a 24 monitor, I do not know if my vision is getting bad, but I can not play black bars anymore on this monitor, I think everything is small and bad to see long distances, my brother owns an acer 27, and I think very good to play in black bars, if you want to play in 4: 3 stretched 24 / 24,5 is a good choice, but if you like bb 27 is better because your square will be bigger
24" is really enough. trust me bro. definitely get 144hz btw, it does make a difference
if they both are 1080p i would definitely go for the 24.5 because on 27 1080p looks shit.
I went from a 27" 60hz to a 24" 144 Hz curved. Thought it would be weird but I love it. And it was only 200€ 😊
Not the same res, the 27 inch one is 1440p
24.5 144hz perfect no need dor 27
I've got 27 1440p 144hz IPS and for sure I'm not going back to 24 or even a 1080p monitor. Gotta love the 1440p in desktop use. In cs doesnt really matter cuz I usually use lower res until yesterday when I swapped to 1920*1200 mini-stretch and it feels great xD
for cs 24.5 but for other modern games 27 wqhd 1440p when ur PC is capable. games like witcher 3 look damn awesome in 1440p! source: have benq 2420z and dell S2716DG
27 is honestly too big. Go for 24"-144/240Hz
27" all the way, resolutions looks really good even you think they goes blurry or something. and you can always use black bars if you need. look for discounts, i got mine under 300€ when the normal price was around 500€
27" 1080p has pretty big pixels. I changed from Acer 27" 144hz to Zowie XL2540 and the size difference is not that noticeable, but the pixel density is much much better. If you have the cash, go for 240hz
i was in the same position 2 years ago, i went for xl2735
in today's date i would go for ips panel 10 out of 10 times
don't make my mistake and get mg279q if u aim for 27"
Go for 27" - No doubt about it
I can't say anything specific to these two monitors, but as for the size, if it's hybrid use or work/office mainly too, I'd go for the 27" nowadays.
Purely for gaming, I think the 24" might actually be better. The field of view you need to cover with your eyes is quite big and possibly too big on a 27". And 24" is way big enough :-) And you also saved €120, win-win.
24", save the buck.
If you find a 240Hz for the price of the 27" monitor and your PC can take it, go for that
24.5 Inch is way more comfortable, at least in my opinion
