There are many reasons why people prefer 24-inch monitors.

First of all, even the lowly 1920×1080 resolution looks good on 24″ sized screens due to decent pixel-per-inch ratio.

As you’re getting a decent amount of screen space, reasonably sharp details and a resolution that’s not too demanding on your PC, you can invest in other features of the monitor such as a higher refresh rate or a higher quality panel.

Secondly, 24″ monitors don’t take up a lot of space which is ideal for those with smaller desks and limited room space.

Lastly, many gamers prefer 24-inch monitors because such small screens allow you to see all the action at once; you don’t have to move your head/eyes as much as you would need with a larger monitor.

Keep in mind that monitor manufacturers advertise different screen sizes as ’24-inch’.

For instance, there are 23.5″ monitors that are marketed as ’24-inch’ yet 24.5″ displays are marketed as ’25-inch’.

Our buying guide includes monitors ranging from 23.5-inch to 24.5-inch. We also mentioned noteworthy 25-inch displays as alternatives.

You can view our changelogs at the end of the article.

The Pros:

  • Accurate colors
  • FreeSync up to 100Hz
  • Fully ergonomic stand

The Cons:

  • No DisplayPort input
  • IPS glow and mediocre contrast ratio (as expected from this panel technology)

About The Monitor

Want the cheapest 24″ monitor that’s actually good? The Acer SH242Y Ebmihx offers all the features you need for vibrant picture quality and smooth performance at an affordable price!

Image Quality

The monitor is based on an IPS panel, which means that you get wide 178° viewing angles, consistent and accurate colors and a quick pixel response time speed.

In fact, out of the other panel technologies, which include VA and TN, IPS offers the widest viewing angles and the best color quality.

Their contrast ratio, however, is not as high as that of VA panels, but VA monitors have other issues such as slow pixel response time; we’ll get into them a bit later on.

Further, while the response time of IPS monitors is not as fast as that of TN monitors, it’s still quick enough for fast-paced gaming.

On the other hand, TN panels have the worst image quality due to inferior color reproduction. They also have narrow 160°/170° viewing angles which cause the picture to shift in color, contrast, and brightness.

Back in the day, if you wanted a cheap 24″ 1080p monitor, you had to settle for a TN panel display.

Nowadays, you can get an excellent IPS display for an affordable price as well, so we highly recommend avoiding TN panel monitors.

So, what makes the Acer SH242Y Ebmihx the best budget 24″ 1080p IPS monitor?

To start with, it offers accurate colors covering the entire sRGB color space and it has a 100Hz refresh rate, which provides you with a noticeable boost in motion clarity as opposed to 60-75Hz displays.

Other panel-related specifications are the same as on other equally priced IPS panels and include a 250-nit peak brightness, a contrast ratio of 1,000:1 and 8-bit color depth support for 16.7 million colors.


amd freesync logo

Moving on, the Acer SH242Y Ebmihx supports AMD FreeSync if you have a compatible graphics card.

This technology allows the monitor to alter its refresh rate dynamically according to the GPU’s frame rates, which completely removes screen tearing and stuttering with minimal input lag penalty.

Sadly, since the monitor doesn’t have a DisplayPort input, you cannot use FreeSync with NVIDIA GPUs.

If you really want a variable refresh rate in this price range, consider the Sceptre E248W-FW100T. It has a DisplayPort input and FreeSync up to 100Hz, but it uses a VA panel with a bit slower response time and not as wide viewing angles – you do get a higher contrast ratio though for deeper blacks.

Design & Connectivity

Acer SH242Y Ebmihx Design

The Acer SH242Y Ebmihx has thin bezels and a fully ergonomic stand with up to 80mm height adjustment, 360° swivel, -5°/15° tilt and 100x100mm VESA mount compatibility.

Connectivity options include HDMI 1.4, VGA, dual 1W built-in speakers and a headphone jack.

There’s also a version of this monitor with USB-C (65W PD), the Acer SH242Y Ebmihux.


If you plan on gaming, it’s definitely worth investing in a 144Hz monitor as you can find a good model for as low as $120 nowadays, such as the KTC H24T09P.

The Pros:

  • Professional-grade Delta < 2 factory-calibration
  • 1920×1200 resolution for extra screen space
  • Fully ergonomic stand and rich connectivity options
  • AMD FreeSync up to 75Hz

The Cons:

  • IPS glow and mediocre contrast ratio (as expected from this panel technology)

About The Monitor

Although 16:9 is the most widespread aspect ratio, some users still prefer the old 16:10 format due to the extra vertical screen space, and the ASUS PA248QV is the most cost-effective such monitor.

Image Quality

The 16:10 aspect ratio also implies a higher screen resolution of 1920×1200.

In comparison to a 23.8″ 1080p monitor which has a pixel density of 92.56 pixels per inch, the ASUS PA248QV has a pixel density of 94.34 PPI.

What does this mean for you?

In addition to having the extra vertical screen space, you also get a slightly sharper picture quality.

The monitor uses an IPS panel, so you get wide viewing angles, accurate colors covering 100% of the sRGB color space, a 300-nit peak brightness, a static contrast ratio of 1,000:1 and dithered 8-bit color depth support.

16x9 vs 16x10


Even though the ASUS PA248QV is intended for color-critical work, it’s also the best 16:10 IPS monitor for everyday and office use, as well as gaming thanks to AMD FreeSync support up to 75Hz.

You can also use FreeSync with compatible NVIDIA cards over DisplayPort. In addition to the monitor’s fast pixel response time speed, you get a smooth gaming experience with minimal ghosting and no screen tearing or stuttering within the 48-75Hz VRR range.

About The Monitor

Finally, let’s get to the best 24-inch gaming monitors!

There are many good ~24″ 1080p 144Hz gaming displays with IPS panels, but the BenQ EX240 is the cheapest one that covers all the essentials.

We’ll include more alternatives below in case you want any extra features at a bit higher cost.

Image Quality

As far as image quality goes, the BenQ EX240 offers similar specifications as the previously-mentioned 24″ monitor, with a bit higher 350-nit peak brightness, a 1,000:1 contrast ratio and 8-bit color depth – but it also supports a ~80% DCI-P3 wide color gamut for more saturated and rich colors.

Now, you might be wondering: what makes this monitor exceptionally good for gaming?

Its rapid 165Hz refresh rate allows the monitor to display up to 165FPS (Frames Per Second) — granted that you have a good enough PC. You can overclock it up to 180Hz in the OSD menu.

In comparison to standard 60Hz monitors, you get significantly smoother motion clarity, better responsiveness and an overall more enjoyable gaming experience.


AMD FreeSync is supported with a 48-165Hz variable refresh rate (VRR) range over both HDMI and DisplayPort, so you can even use it with compatible NVIDIA cards.

Further, LFC is supported, meaning that the variable refresh rate will function even below 48FPS by multiplying the frame rate for smoother performance (47FPS = 94Hz, etc.).

The monitor also supports backlight strobing via its MBR (Motion Blur Reduction) technology, which can further reduce the perceived motion blur and ghosting, but it sacrifices picture brightness.

However, MBR and VRR cannot work at the same time, so you’ll have to choose between the two.

The BenQ EX240 offers additional gaming features such as various picture presets, Color Vibrance, and Black eQualizer, which enhances visibility in darker games by changing the gamma curve.

Design & Connectivity

BenQ Mobiuz EX240 Review

The monitor also has a sturdy and ergonomic stand with up to 100mm height adjustment, +/- 15° swivel, -5°/15° tilt and 100x100mm VESA mount compatibility.

Connectivity options include two HDMI 2.0 ports, DisplayPort 1.2, a headphone jack, dual 2.5W integrated speakers and a dual-USB 3.0 hub. The 1080p 120Hz mode is supported for the PS5 and Xbox consoles.


Another similar model with a wide color gamut is the AOC 24G2SP. It has a more ergonomic stand, but no USB ports. It also has a bit slower response time.

Other models worth considering include the LG 24GN650 and the HP x24i. These have just as fast response time as the EX240, but no wide color gamut support.

Keep in mind that the Dell S2522HG with a 240Hz refresh rate sometimes goes on sale for $150. It doesn’t have a wide color gamut or MBR support though.

The prices of these budget monitors often fluctuate, so feel free to leave us a comment below. We also have a list of all 24″ 1080p ~144Hz IPS monitors available.

The Pros:

  • Crisp image quality
  • FreeSync and MBR up to 165Hz
  • High contrast ratio
  • Ergonomic design

The Cons:

  • Minor smearing in fast-paced games, mostly noticeable in dark scenes

About The Monitor

Want something a little bit different that also offers an immersive and responsive gaming experience? The AOC C24G1A is the best 24″ curved gaming monitor!

Image Quality

This display uses a VA panel, which offers a superb contrast ratio of 3,000:1! As a result, you get considerably deeper blacks and more vivid details in shadows of the picture, which is particularly noticeable when watching movies or playing games in a dark room.

The colors aren’t quite as consistent as they are on IPS panels, but they are very good nonetheless thanks to the wide ~120% sRGB color gamut.

But that’s not all, another thing to keep in mind is the pixel response time speed of VA panels. While you do get very deep blacks, dark pixels can’t quite change into lighter shades in time with the high refresh rates, so you will get visible black smearing in fast-paced games.

Overall, the amount of smearing is tolerable, but if you’re a hardcore FPS gamer, you should pick an IPS or TN panel gaming monitor instead for better results.


The AOC C24G1A supports AMD FreeSync with a 48-144Hz VRR range, and it works with compatible NVIDIA cards. You can also overclock the monitor, in which case FreeSync works all the way up to 165Hz.

Unfortunately, some units of the AOC C24G1A (and most other monitors based on Samsung’s VA panels) are affected by the brightness flickering issue when FreeSync is enabled.

This brightness flickering is mostly visible when your FPS fluctuates a lot or when it gets below 48FPS and triggers LFC. It doesn’t affect all units of the monitor, and it’s not visible in all video games.

Moving on, you also get the MBR technology with manually adjustable frequency.

This feature can greatly help eliminate smearing in fast-paced video games. Naturally, you can’t use it at the same time as FreeSync.

Now, while MBR reduces the monitor’s brightness, you can manually tweak the frequency in the OSD menu of the monitor and find the perfect trade-off between picture brightness and motion clarity for you.

Other features include an on-screen crosshair, pre-calibrated picture presets, Shadow Control (improves visibility in dark games) and Game Color (different color saturation presets).

Design & Connectivity

aoc c24g1 monitor back

You can elevate the screen up to 130mm, swivel it by +/- 30°, tilt by -5°/20° or VESA mount it.

Connectivity options include two HDMI 1.4 ports (max 144Hz), DisplayPort 1.2 (for 165Hz), VGA and a headphone jack. The 1080p 120Hz mode is supported for the PS5 and Xbox consoles.

The screen has a 1500R curvature which isn’t very noticeable considering it’s a 24-inch monitor, but it adds a bit of extra depth to the picture.


In case the AOC C24G1A is not available, check out the previous C24G1 model with the same specifications — except for the wide color gamut and overclocked refresh rate.

The Pros:

  • Crisp image quality with accurate colors
  • FreeSync and MBR up to 240Hz
  • Quick pixel response time speed
  • Fully ergonomic stand

The Cons:

  • IPS glow and mediocre contrast ratio (as expected from this panel technology)

About The Monitor

The ViewSonic XG2431 is one of the best 240Hz gaming monitors! You get a high 240Hz refresh rate, a quick 1ms response time speed, VRR support, impeccable MBR performance and vibrant colors with wide viewing angles!

Image Quality

This 23.8″ monitor is based on an IPS panel with a 350-nit peak brightness and a 1,000:1 static contrast ratio.

Now, the ViewSonic XG2431 also supports HDR (High Dynamic Range), but it is only software-emulated. For a notable improvement in HDR picture quality, a monitor needs a wide color gamut, a higher brightness and a much higher contrast as well as local dimming; the XG2431 has none.

Turns out, it can accept the HDR10 signal and display it, but there won’t be any improvements for HDR content. As this type of support doesn’t even increase the monitor’s price, you can ignore it.

Regardless, thanks to its IPS panel, the colors are precise and consistent. In addition, you get an outstanding peak brightness for SDR content and 178° wide viewing angles.


The main selling point here?

The 240Hz refresh rate and, along with it, the rapid 1ms response time and Blur Busters 2.0 Approved MBR implementation.

Note that the difference between 144Hz and 240Hz is not as big as the difference between 60Hz and 144Hz. You will be able to notice/feel it, but many gamers prefer 1440p 144Hz monitors at this price range.

Naturally, if you’re a competitive eSports FPS gamer, you want every millisecond of advantage you can acquire, which is why a 240Hz display is an obvious choice then.

The ViewSonic XG2431 supports AMD FreeSync with a 48-240Hz VRR range, and offers stable performance with NVIDIA cards.

You also get a Motion Blur Reduction technology called PureXP+ that’s tuned by Blur Busters for exceptional performance and customization. Be sure to visit our ViewSonic XG2431 review for more details.

Design & Connectivity

ViewSonic XG2431 Monitor Design

The screen of the monitor can be adjusted vertically by 120mm, horizontally by +/- 90°, pivoted by 90°, tilted by -5°/15° or VESA mounted via the 100x100mm pattern.

Connectivity options include two HDMI 2.0 ports, DisplayPort 1.4, a headphone jack, a dual-USB 3.0 hub and two 3W integrated speakers.


If you’re looking for something a bit cheaper, check out the Acer XV252QZ or the ASUS XG249CM ($200 on sale), though these models don’t have as good backlight strobing implementation.

The Pros:

  • Crisp image quality with accurate colors
  • FreeSync and MBR up to 390Hz
  • Quick pixel response time speed
  • Fully ergonomic stand

The Cons:

  • IPS glow and mediocre contrast ratio (as expected from this panel technology)

About The Monitor

Want an even higher refresh rate? The Acer 25XV2QF goes up to 360Hz and it’s even overclockable to 390Hz!

Image Quality

The higher the refresh rate, the lower the input lag, assuming you can maintain appropriately high frame rates. That’s why the Aopen 25XV2QF with its 390Hz is the perfect gaming machine for highly competitive players.

What’s more, it has a quick enough response time to keep up with its refresh rate, as well as support for variable refresh rate and backlight strobing all the way up to 390Hz/FPS.

The difference between 240Hz and 390Hz is subtle, but for competitive gaming, every little bit counts!

Other features include Black Boost, crosshair overlays and various picture presets.

Design & Connectivity

Acer Aopen 25XV2QF Monitor Design

The stand of the monitor offers height adjustment up to 120mm, -5°/25° tilt, +/- 180° swivel, 90° pivot and 100x100mm VESA mount compatibility.

Connectivity options include DisplayPort 1.4, two HDMI 2.0 ports (max 240Hz), a headphone jack and two 2W integrated speakers.


If the 25XV2QF isn’t available, check out the Acer Nitro XV252QF. It’s the same monitor with a different design/branding.

Finally, if neither is available, look for the 360Hz G-SYNC models; the Dell AW2521H can sometimes be found on sale for ~$400.

The Pros:

  • Rapid response time speed
  • FreeSync up to 360Hz
  • Impeccable backlight strobing implementation
  • Fully ergonomic stand

The Cons:

  • Narrow viewing angles

About The Monitor

If you want to take your competitive FPS gaming to the next level, there’s the BenQ Zowie XL2566K!

Image Quality

Unlike the Acer 25XV2QF, the BenQ XL2566K uses a TN panel. This means that it has a significantly faster pixel response time speed for zero ghosting behind fast-moving objects.

However, TN panels have narrower viewing angles, so the image will degrade when looking at it at an angle. As long as you’re directly in front of the screen though, this won’t be an issue.

Another big advantage of the XL2566K is its exceptionally tuned DyAc+ Motion Blur Reduction technology. It works all the way up to 360Hz, has minimum visual artifacts such as crosstalk and has no penalty on image brightness!

The monitor also offers a bunch of other useful gaming features, such as Black eQualizer, Color Vibrance, AMD FreeSync, display scaling, an S. Switch device for quick and easy OSD settings adjustments and more!

Check out our detailed BenQ XL2566K review for more information.

Design & Connectivity

BenQ XL2566K Monitor Design

The stand of the monitor offers height adjustment up to 155mm, -5°/23° tilt, +/- 45° swivel, 90° pivot and 100x100mm VESA mount compatibility. You also get a shading hood.

Connectivity options include DisplayPort 1.4, two HDMI 2.0 ports (max 240Hz) and a headphone jack.


If the XL2566K is too expensive for you or you cannot maintain 360FPS in games, there’s a cheaper 240Hz version, the BenQ Zowie XL2546K, with the same DyAc+ backlight strobing implementation.

There’s also the newer BenQ Zowie XL2546X 240Hz variant with DyAc 2 that’s supposed to be easier on the eyes, but it goes for $100 more than the XL2546K.

The Pros:

  • Crisp image quality, accurate colors
  • FreeSync up to 165Hz
  • High pixel density

The Cons:

  • IPS glow and mediocre contrast ratio (as expected from this panel technology)

About The Monitor

Need a 24″ monitor with a higher screen resolution than Full HD? Look no further than the Koorui GP01!

It has a high 165Hz refresh rate yet it goes for the same price as the 60-75Hz models!

Image Quality

If you want even sharper details and more screen real estate on a 24-inch monitor, we recommend going with the Koorui GP01 with 2560×1440 Quad HD resolution.

Now, 4K UHD is overkill for 24″ monitors as it would make everything so tiny that you would have to apply heavy scaling to make text readable, which would, in turn, reduce the amount of available screen space.

Even with 1440p on 24″ monitors, most people prefer to use at least 125% scaling.

In fact, the difference between detail clarity and available screen space on scaled 24″ 1440p and 24″ 4K monitors is barely noticeable, yet a 4K monitor is significantly more expensive and more demanding on your PC.

So, if you want crystal-clear details and plenty of screen space, 1440p is more than enough for 24″ displays.

Moving on, the Koorui GP01 features an IPS panel with 178° wide viewing angles, a 400-nit peak brightness, a 1,000:1 contrast ratio, sRGB color gamut and 8-bit color depth support.

There are many gaming features available, including AMD FreeSync with a 48-165Hz VRR range and stable G-SYNC performance.

Check out our full Koorui GP01 review for more information.

Design & Connectivity

Koorui GP01 Design

The stand of the monitor offers height adjustment up to 110mm, -5°/15° tilt, +/- 30° swivel, 90° pivot and 100x100mm VESA mount compatibility.

Connectivity options include two HDMI 2.0 ports, DisplayPort 1.2 and a headphone jack.


In the case GP01 is not available, there are 75Hz models, such as the LG 24QP500 and the Acer VG240YU. For color-critical work, we recommend the 25″ BenQ PD2500Q.

There are two more 24″ 1440p high refresh rate models, the AOC Q24G2A and the Philips 24M1N5500Z, but these aren’t available in the US.

In case you decide to go with a 24″ 4K monitor, we recommend the LG UltraFine 24MD4KL.

The Pros:

  • ULMB 2
  • Wide color gamut
  • Plenty of gaming features, including VRR up to 540Hz
  • Fully ergonomic stand, USB hub

The Cons:

  • Narrow viewing angles

About The Monitor

The ASUS PG248QP is hands-down the best gaming monitor you can get for competitive gaming.

Image Quality

Thanks to its high 540Hz refresh rate, and more importantly, quick enough pixel response time speed to keep up with such a high refresh rate, the ASUS PG248QP delivers an unprecedented competitive gaming experience with the lowest input lag and smoothest motion clarity.

It also supports ULMB2 backlight strobing technology that works all the way up to 540Hz with a minimum brightness penalty and almost no strobe crosstalk artifacts for CRT-like motion clarity.

VRR is also supported up to 540Hz for NVIDIA cards, while AMD GPUs are limited to 500Hz (but only when using FreeSync – otherwise, you can use the monitor as well as ULMB2 up to 540Hz with Radeon graphics cards).

Other specifications include a 1,000:1 contrast ratio, a 400-nit peak brightness and a wide 90% DCI-P3 gamut coverage for more saturated colors. You’ll also find the standard gaming features, such as crosshair overlays, Dark Boost, etc.

The main downside are the narrow viewing angles, which cause the image to degrade in quality at an angle, but this isn’t an issue as long as you’re sitting directly in front of the screen.

Design & Connectivity

ASUS ROG Swift Pro PG248QP Design

The stand of the monitor offers height adjustment up to 110mm, -5°/20° tilt, +/- 30° swivel and 100x100mm VESA mount compatibility.

Connectivity options include DisplayPort 1.4 with DSC, two HDMI 2.0 ports, a headphone jack and a dual-USB 3.0 hub.


While there are 1080p 500Hz IPS gaming monitors, such as the Dell AW2524H, its pixel response time speed doesn’t even come close to that of the PG248QP. More importantly, it doesn’t have a fast enough response time for its 500Hz refresh rate, which results in noticeable ghosting.

Therefore, the ASUS PG248QP is the best eSports gaming monitor available.

Alternatively, consider waiting for the Acer XV242F model. It uses the same panel, but without the G-SYNC module. At the moment, it’s only available in China for ~$540. We also don’t know how good its MBR implementation will be in comparison to ULMB2.

BenQ announced their ZOWIE XL2586X too, with a 24.5″ 1080p 540Hz TN panel and DyAc 2 backlight strobing implementation. No word on pricing and availability yet though.


Did you find the 24-inch monitor you’ve been looking for?

If you need any further assistance in choosing your next monitor, feel free to leave us a comment below!

Overall, the Acer SH242Y Ebmihx is a great budget option if you just want a monitor for everyday use.

For gamers, we highly recommend investing in a 144Hz+ monitor, such as the BenQ EX240, or one of the alternatives we mentioned.

If you want something faster, both the ViewSonic XG2431, the BenQ XL2566K and the Acer 25XV2QF are remarkable gaming displays, so pick one according to your budget.

For a good mixture of gaming responsiveness and image clarity, we recommend the Koorui GP01.

In case you want a higher resolution, more vertical space, a curved screen with high contrast, professional-grade color accuracy, or USB-C, the monitors we’ve included offer the best value for the money in their respective categories.
