I tried looking it up. I couldn't find anything other than the specs but I have no idea what they mean. The only thing I hear about is response time and refresh rate. This is 1ms response time and 75Hz refresh rate, which I think are good but I don't know. I also don't know if I should be looking for any other specs or anything
Iike that?

You need to rage cancel your order. Don't buy a cheapo monitor. You won't have a good experience. If you have questions just ask, I'll help

SDS

From what I found, similar models from Acer and Acer models in general seem to have good input lag, compared to most BenQ or LG and others. But couldn’t find anything definitive on it. Not including high end ones in the comparison though

SDS

That 1ms response time is BS. It's a VA panel. Not gonna happen on a budget monitor like that. Cancel your order

Yeah, that's why I posted this. If I can't get something decent under $150 I can't do it. I'll only be using it for this game

I appreciate it man. Gonna cancel and hope someone on here can help me out. I don't wanna go over $150. I'll only be using it for this game and my money is tight at the moment.

Yeah I did and searched reddit and google. That's how I learned about refresh rate and response time but a lot of them are old or about monitors that I can't afford.

USA? Do you have a certain place you have to buy from? Any chance you'll play other games besides the show on the monitor ?.

I bought this one last July just for this game and it made a big difference. I got the ps5 launch day in November last year so I upgraded my monitor. This monitor was probably used less than 50 times so say 100 hours of use. I would be willing to sell it to you for a decent price. Its like brand new and I will even send the hdmi cord. Let me know if you're interested. Its the 27" model for $155 on amazon.

The real question is what monitor are you using with the PS5?

Any reason why you stayed with 1080p and didn't do 4k? I've been waiting for a mobiuz 4k monitor to come out

I really only play a few types of games which is sports and first person shooters like Battlefield and Call of Duty. Occasionally I will play games with my kids but that is on the big TV. So to answer your question I was more interested in performance and frames per second as opposed to visuals. I'm not really into games like Spider-Man and those really beautiful Scenic games. I prefer the frames as opposed to the graphics. The graphics on the ps5 on this monitor are amazing but in my research I found that 1080p is better for split second frames like hitting a baseball. I'm no guru soni could be wrong but this was my conclusion after asking round and doing my own research. I could always buy another in the future if 4k performance gets better.

SDS

If you play shooters I totally get it. The higher fps at 1080p makes sense, they play way smoother
