DIC­TIONARY WHAT ABOUT FRAM­ER­ATE CAPS?

Lim­it­ing the ap­peal of these dis­plays is that some games are capped at fram­er­ates lower than 240Hz. For in­stance, Ti­tan­fall 2 is lim­ited to 144fps, while Star Wars Bat­tle­front 2 is lim­ited to 200fps.

DO THESE MON­I­TORS IN­CLUDE FREESYNC OR G-SYNC?

AMD and Nvidia’s adap­tive sync tech­nolo­gies work at up to 240Hz, and in­deed all the mon­i­tors here fea­ture one of these.

DIC­TIONARY TN

The dis­plays use TN-type pan­els. These have the worst view­ing an­gles and color ac­cu­racy, but the fastest re­sponse of 1ms.

RE­SPONSE TIME

The time it takes for a pixel to tran­si­tion from one color to an­other.

BACK­LIGHT STROB­ING

A mode that flashes the back­light on and off. This tricks the brain into see­ing a clearer im­age when there’s fast move­ment hap­pen­ing on screen.
