Never going back to 60hz ever again
« on: November 06, 2019, 09:50:28 PM »
I got my IIYAMA G-MASTER Red Eagle today. It's a freesync 144hz QHD monitor. Oh man. Oooooh man it is silky smooth. I never thought having higher refresh rates would look so good. I guess I was too used to accepting 60hz as it was the standard and probably still is. 144hz though, especially when gaming, is out of this world.

Yeah when playing early 2000s games on my secondary pc, I set it to 640x480 so I can play at 100hz as it's a CRT.
I've never owned a 144hz monitor however, I've been wondering if it's worth getting?

I knew it!
Is it better also for text reading and programming?
Eye comfort?

I never had a doubt it's worth buying.. For gaming at least..

I think it is, and I only have a 75hz monitor, but I can tell the difference between that and a 60hz monitor after a while in-front of the screen.
