I'm pretty sure the panels in those two are identical, and the Asus display can be upgraded for G-Sync with a G-Sync module kit.



Why do you think they're identical? Both are great, but I don't see anything anywhere that says the panels are the same.

If he wants G-Sync though, and is cool with the DIY Kit that ASUS has released. I agree the Asus would be the better choice.

That being said, if he wants G-Sync i'd just wait for an actual G-Sync monitor.


Both are 144hz, they cost the same when they came out, and general consensus is that they're pretty much identical in terms of the LCD it's self.
It's not uncommon for competing brands to buy panels from the same source. And they're both 144hz specifically. Not 143hz, not 145hz, not 140hz, but 144hz.

24" Eizo FORIS FG2421 120 Hz MVA panel

1920 x 1080

From all the reviews I've read about this, the price is reasonable for the quality of panel that you get.

Eizo is really known for super professional monitors used by those who need maximum accuracy / performance, and they've decided to get into gaming monitors.

The color reproduction, the high 120 Hz refresh rate, and the wide viewing angle makes this the closest you're going to get to a high end panel that is 120 Hz.

I'd avoid anything that is a TN panel, the color reproduction, viewing angle issues, color shift when you're off viewing angles, is not worth the downgrade in panel quality for high refresh rate, I've already found a panel that is MVA and does a far better job than a TN panel. I would recommend that you go that route.

As far as G-sync is concerned, I wouldn't worry about it until we see the fall out from G-sync and Open Sync and if there will be a new universal standard.

Ah gotcha, so you're just assuming they're the same because the specs are similar. That's kinda what I was assuming what you were doing, but just seeing if I was missing something obvious out there.


While they may be the same (I personally don't believe they are), just because the specs are similar doesn't mean they are the exact same panel.

Hmm, I guess I don't need to wait for Gsync and the only reason I mentioned 120Hz is that I've always had a 60Hz and figured to step up for gaming. Any final suggestions/input?

How are those monitors for gaming?

He seems to be asking specifically for gaming, and for as long as I can remember nothing comes close to beating a TN there.

ASUS VG248QE is probably the best 1080p 120hz display on the market right now.


This is what I have. I figured this was something different since it was mentioned at 120 instead of 144.

It's pretty unlikely that there's a surplus of different 144hz 24inch gaming-calibrated LCD models out there. :>
There's really nothing at all to suggest they're using different panels.

I'd honestly suggest getting a 1440p monitor. I got a Korean made one (Qnix) and I was easily able to overclock through Nvidia settings to 110hz.

At that, it's probably cheaper than what you'll find a smaller, lower resolution, lower overall quality TN panel with the only advantage being a higher refresh rate. I went from a 120hz 1080p monitor to a 1440p monitor and even if I had to stick with just 60hz, my 1440p blows my old monitor away.
