Thinking about buying it but you guys have given me advice/convinced me out of buying stuff in the past so I wanted to run it by you. Any experiences or obvious downsides?

Edit: it's on sale rn so I need quick advice but what has me worried is the 8.5ms response time I found on reddit (it's an IPS monitor). I know manufacturers all claim their monitors are 5ms or 1ms and it's a lie, so what's a good response time to aim for? Is 8.5 acceptable for a game like tf2 or is a fast TN panel the only proper way to go?

idk if anyone has privately told you but I don't believe most manufacturers are lying about the response times, just using gray to gray which isnt the important one for good display. mrpt generally isn't listed (maybe in the tech specs? But frankly I havent looked at monitor tech since 2015) and will almost always be higher.

also correct me if im wrong, I'm a nerd that doesnt know new shit and thats not conducive to being a nerd

This one's actually advertised as having 1ms MRPT, but I'm pretty sure that's with their motion blur reduction tech turned up the the max, which makes it strobe like a motherfucker and gives everyone that's tried it a serious headache. The actual response time that people measured in a bunch of different yt vids/reddit was ~8.5 ms. That's what I meant by lying - listing data from conditions that no one would use irl

Anyways I ordered it because fuck it, it looks like what I need on paper and I didn't find any awful reviews, hopefully it's good

I just got a half chub reading that site

Too bad you'd need the NASA mainframe to run new games @ 1440p 240 fps

Is there a site/statistic that will show you an accurate response time?

YeeHawIs there a site/statistic that will show you an accurate response time?

Not that I know of for every monitor but the vid I watched and the reddit comment I saw used some kind of external sensor that they put up to the monitor to measure it. I'm not techy enough to know exactly what it is

You have 240hz for your TF2 and such and freesync/gsync for when you cant reach the full 240hz.
