Hannspree HG324QJB 32" 1440p 144hz Adaptive Sync (Mini Review) - £360 2560x1440 144Hz 2ms Response VA true 8 bit panel Adaptive Sync So my old Philips 40" 4K BDM4065UC for comparison. The slight glow in the bottom right is some light come in from the curtain (As you can see the bottom bezel is lit up). But no backlight bleed, and a pretty nice dark image. Gaming - So as i own a GTX 1080Ti, I was debating whether to buy a monitor with G-sync, but I was in doubt that I really needed it. So screen tearing with Vsync off. So in these games I've tested - Mirrors Edge Catalyst, Mass effect Andromeda, Assetto Corsa Competizione, Project Cars 2, RaceRoom, Hitman 2, Day of defeat, My FPS was anything from 120fps to 300fps and there was no noticeable screen tearing. Only in Mafia 3 did I get bad screen tearing with Vsync off. But bare in mind it will only run at 60fps with Vsync on, where there is no screen tearing. So it seems to me that G-sync would only be an advantage in older titles that only support up to 60hz. From more modern games, now that 144Hz monitors are starting to become more mainstream, the newer titles like Hitman 2 and ACC seem to show that G-sync is not needed. Now I have very fussy eyes, and from my Philips Monitor I was getting fed up with the so called 5ms response and the ghosting I was seeing was pretty bad. But now owning this monitor, there is no ghosting from the typical mouse use in games. My conclusion, this monitor is a bargain for what you get. Yes the red looks worst in the pics, but sitting here in front of me, it's a matte metallic red, which does look quite stylish. So the pics don't give the monitor justice. The bottom of the stand is Aluminium, where as the mid section is the typical outer plastic with a metal structure inside. So I highly recommend this monitor, and especially for those that are sitting on the edge wondering if they really need G-sync.
