Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best FPS gaming monitor ever I sold my old monitor which was a BenQ 2730 2560 x 1440 144hz so I could buy this instead which is about the same price. It hurt at first sacrificing resolution for refresh rate, but since I am getting more competitive in Overwatch I figured I would get this 240hz monitor instead. The DyAc feature is pretty cool. I am not sure exactly how it works, but it does noticeably reduce blur. My old monitor had a hidden blur reduction feature that basically just flickered at the 144hz rate. The flicker was very noticeable when you weren't playing a game, so if I used it I only used it while playing a game. Overall though I couldn't tell too much of a difference with the old blur reduction. DyAc helps things appear clearer even when moving fast. Overwatch is a fast paced game. You are moving fast and your opponents are usually moving fast around you at the same time making it harder to aim and hit them. Refresh rate definitely helps a lot in these scenarios and the blur reduction makes it even easier to be accurate. Moving from 144hz to 240hz was hard to justify for a while. I've researched it a lot and wanted to know if people really could tell a difference. Most people said they visually cannot see a difference, but they do notice a difference in their performance in game. I've found that to be true. It is hard to see a difference visually from 144hz to 240hz, but I definitely have improved in game. I've increased my competitive rating a whole rank from platinum to diamond. And I have been stuck in platinum since the game released in 2016. If you really want to feel the difference between 240hz and 144hz the best thing to do is play at 240hz for a week. Then go back to 144hz to see if you can handle it. If you compare 240hz and 144hz switching back and forth for a few minutes apart you won't tell much of a difference. You don't know what you have until it is taken away from you. Which is why it is much easier to tell a difference if you played at 240hz for a good amount of time then tried to go back to a slower refresh rate.
