BenQ XL2420T worth it over my Acer GD235HZbid?

There's a deal for it for $230:

Assuming it doesn't sell out before I make the decision, is it worth getting to replace my Acer? I can't necessarily say I'm disappointed with the image quality or something, but I've heard this BenQ is pretty good. My thing is that I'd be lucky to sell my Acer for $150 from what it seems, so I'd be paying close to $100 extra for it. Don't really have the budget to keep it and have two monitors.

I also don't know if I'm better off saving up and getting a catleap off eBay or something for the higher resolution/Hz.

Don't buy a factory reconditioned monitor, most of the time those are floor demo models that stay on 24/7.

I've owned both, totally worth it.

I'm not too keen on refurbed stuff, but if you are fine with turning down some settings on newer games to get 120FPS then go for it.

Can't speak for your current monitor but I'm very happy with my XL2420TX. The only difference with mine is the integrated 3d emitter. Same monitor otherwise.
