144hz to 240 = marketing ?
France Too_Many_boosted_on_Faceit 
Is such an update useful or is it better to stay on your 144hz and wait for the 300hz screens (maybe one day)? Is it worth it now or not? Switch from a BenQ144hz to a BenQ 240? For those who went from a 144 to a 240, did you see a difference? Can you go back to a 144 after testing a 240?

No, but CSGO is the game I mainly play. It is not in the interest of having any advantage that I ask this question, the advantage is to go from 60 to 144hz, I know that the difference between 144 and 240 minimal but would it not be in "comfort", is it more pleasant? Is there an even better feeling of fluidity? That's my question.

If you're not completely terrible at the game you will notice a difference between 144 to 240. Most pros say they can still compete on 144, but 240 is nicer, especially for quick, long flicks.

Most pros play 4:3 stretched with faster hitboxes but for a person like me playing in 16:9 1920x1080 and whose hitboxes are slower, would I really see this mini difference?

I've noticed a lot of pros making the switch to wider resolutions. For example most of Astralis is on 16:10 now. It would almost certainly make any mouse movement feel smoother, and of course like you said the player models would also move across your screen more smoothly. If you play a lot and enjoy the game, go for it.

0/8 1. Use voice_enable 0, don't inflict on yourself the toxicity and useless information of your teammate monkeys that are only good for hiding enemy footsteps, look at the mini map and listen to footsteps, you will naturally develop your sense of the game with concentration. 2. Not having heard your teammates of the whole game, once the game is over, download the Faceit demo to finally hear your teammates, prepare a dish followed by a cool drink, tilt your 180 degree gamer chair and watch your Rager teammates in demo while you had voice_enable 0 and this, for a good slice of laughter.

How is it marketing wtf. But yes 240 is better than 144, way smoother and if you are into esports or just like to compete and your pc can handle 240+ fps and you got the budget and you feel like it you need it then go for it. May not be as big as from 60hz to 144hz as difference but surely you gonna notice it and going back to 144hz won't be as atrocious but surely not responsive.

I remember seeing math behind 144 vs 240. From 60 to 144 the difference was massive (something like 30% better or similar) but from 144 to 240 it was under 5% difference. Now, I only remember these numbers so that them with a grain of salt. Point was that difference with 144 and 240 is quite minimal, so it really is up to you.

240HZ is smoother compared to 144HZ but there still a long way to go...I had a CRT running at 170HZ with 800X600 resolution, it started having problems with colours so i was forced to upgrade so i went with a 240HZ monitor...Honestly i wish i could go back, far worse colours and blurry as hell.. On the CRT it felt smoother despite having ''only'' 170HZ, i hope in the near future LCD technology improves drastically otherwise we are left with old blurry panels and raising the refresh rate wont help it

It's smoother and you can tell a difference but I don't think you'll improve much as a player just by upgrading, also you should make sure to have a high-end PC before upgrading since it won't do you much favour if you constantly drop below 240fps. If you already have 144hz then I'd say that its not worth upgrading since 240hz monitors are still very expensive, if they drop in price in the future it might be worth it. If you have a bunch of money laying around and do decide to go for it you probably won't be disappointed though.

well you can buy a good one. like one with 3600 or i5 9400. but those will give you 200-300 fps. to have +250 consistently you need like an overclocked i5 9700k at 4.8ghz. its a big difference in price. i have an i5 9400 myself so i know that you dont get 250 fps in executes or running down mid mirage with nades or outside nuke, barely 200.

you dont need it to have good fps. but to be over 250 most of the time you do. and this is my point. reaching this point makes barely a difference and costs a lot more together with 240hz. a mid range cpu +144hz is everything you need if you arent pro or streaming fulltime.

Ok. i have a 240hz monitor and can feel a little difference between the monitors. feels smoother
2019-08-28 15:43
The human eye can physiologically detect up to 1000 frames per second. The average human, tasked with detecting what framerate he/she is looking at, can accurately guess up to around 150 fps. That is, they can see the difference in framerates all the way to 150 fps.

i upgraded from 144 to 240 a month ago.. do i feel a difference? yes, but its a slight one. i kinda regret the money i spent on it, i definetly expected more. if u have 60 hz, ofc u should go for 240, but if u already have a 144 hz monitor, its not worth spending that much for ssuch a minor upgrade, just my opinion

When you use the word "worth" just depends on your money bro. It kinda isnt "worth" if you consider you can get one of the best possible 144hz for around 200-250 and to get one of the best or atleast decent to good 244hz you have to pay so much more i gonna still wait some till they get cheaper. 144hz monitor 300 fps aint feeling too bad for me
2019-08-28 16:38
I had 144hz cheap monitor (AOG), but recently got the 240hz benq XL2546. I have to say its a good monitor, even at 144hz it feels better than my old monitor. But at 240hz its definitely smoother. In addition it has the quick switch, I have a regular web-surfing profile and gaming profile, so you can tune colors and brightness separately for gaming, which is great. And Dyac (at low setting) is excellent. AMA I don't use, feels crap. Anyways, I'd say maybe not worth it if you already have a good 144hz monitor, if not, it can be a significant upgrade.

There is definitely a difference between 144 and 240 but it's not as big as 60 to 144 anyone who claims otherwise doesn't have a 240 or is blind.
2019-08-28 17:03
Just watch Linus Techtips Video on that topic. He is showing the difference. Actually you hit more targets, because the motions are smoother and more natural. If you look closer at 60hz for example, you see that it is still not perfectly smooth, instead it has a little bit auf tearing

I doubt a lot of people have experience with 240 hz and I don't know how big the difference is between 144 and 240 but apparently it's noticable if you switch back from 240 to 144. I play on a 144 and I think it's great:)
2019-08-28 20:23
The question is if you really can notice a difference between a 6.9 ms (144 Hz) frametime and a 4.2 ms (240 Hz) one. Most likely you will notice a difference between 13.3 ms (75 Hz) and 6.9 ms, but you should be GuardiaN or kennyS to notice it between 6.9 ms and 4.2 ms and even they may not notice it because they're humans and not robots. To know it for sure you should spend let's say 100 hours on a 240 Hz monitor and then another 100 on a 144 Hz one, and you shouldn't be told which one is 144 Hz and which one is 240 Hz so that there's no placebo effect.

If you have a lot of money, buy it, but if u have only the necessary for buy the monitor, don't buy, it's not worth it, I recomend you buy skins on neshastore using "FKS" code
2019-09-17 20:02
The biggest problem with 144hz is that it's too good. It's like a drug, once you feel it - there's no coming back, you start to lower the settings to low just to play at 144fps, and you start buying too expensive GPUs just to have more fps. Shit 😊😊😊
2019-09-17 20:05
From my experience, it's not worth getting 240 hz unless you are literally a pro or someone that has money to throw around. I would get 240 hz if you currently have a 60 hz but if you already have 144 hz its not worth the upgrade. I went to ECS Finals In Arlington last year and the stadium there had PCs and I didn't even notice the monitors went up to 240 hz till I went to settings and realized i was playing 240 hz the entire time. It had basically an unnoticeable effect and I don't think I'll improve much from going out and buying one for myself.
2019-09-17 21:08
I'm playing better since switching to a 240hz screen, might be placebo but everything seems smoother and I almost never miss a jigglepeak or a gap cross now.

I use 144 for a couple years, I tested 240 and it is better, but the only big change is 60 to 120+, outside that its not a big deal I would go for 240 only if I was full nerd 24hr playing cs no lifing, also if u already play with good fps, good equipment etc
