Best 240hz Monitors in 2020

#1 BenQ ZOWIE XL2740

In our opinion, BenQ’s ZOWIE XL2540 offers one of the best options for gamers who are looking to purchase either a G-Sync or Adaptive Sync compatible 240Hz monitor. The XL2540 is a 27″ display with a 240Hz refresh rate, that offers both G-Sync and Adaptive Sync compatibility.

It does come with a TN panel and, as such, is able to deliver a 1ms response time. However, that is standard among 240Hz displays. What sets the XL2740 apart from some of the other options on this list is its larger screen size.

The XL2740 also comes with removable “shields” that sit on the outside of the monitor to help minimize distractions while you pay. And, BenQ also makes a 25-inch version of this display, the XL2540, for just under ~$400.

Ultimately, if you’re looking for a 240Hz monitor that will give you the option to use both an NVIDIA graphics card or an AMD graphics card, the XL2740 is an option worth considering.

#2 Acer XF250Q 240Hz

A high-resolution display. A 1ms response time. A ton of bonus features. What more could you ask for? The Acer 240Hz Gaming Monitor is an absolute machine with a wide HD screen that boasts AMD FreeSync and an unbelievable refresh rate! And since the best 1440p 240Hz monitor hasn’t hit the market yet, this is perhaps the best high-resolution 240Hz monitor available!

  • 24.5” TN panel
  • 1920 x 1080 16:9
  • 240Hz refresh rate
  • 1ms GTG response time
  • AMD FreeSync
  • Bonus features: 90-degree pivoting stand, Acer Eye Protect, and more

#3 Alienware 25 Gaming Monitor 

Alienware is renowned for its powerful gaming hardware, and the 25” Alienware is no exception! Boasting a futuristic design worthy of its name, you get full HD resolution, an adjustable ergonomic stand, and wide OS compatibility. A 240Hz refresh rate and 1ms response time combine with AMD FreeSync for perfect frames with no tears or ghosting. It also features built-in perks like On-Screen Design, a built-in Timer, an FPS Counter, and more!

  • 1920 x 1080 16:9
  • 240Hz refresh rate
  • 1ms GTG response time
  • AMD FreeSync

#4 ASUS ROG Swift PG258Q eSports

The Rog Swift is the next generation of Asus monitors! It sports a large 24.5” screen, full HD resolution, and an ergonomic stand. Plus, it’s perfect for hardcore gamers thanks to the 240hz refresh rate and rapid 1ms response time.

Like to get the most bang for your buck? Well, the 24.5” Rog Swift also features integrated software like Asus Eye Care, Smart Air Vent, G-Sync and more. An exceptional buy.

  • 24.5” TN panel
  • 1920 x 1080 16:9
  • 240Hz refresh rate
  • 1ms GTG response time
  • Nvidia G-Sync
  • Bonus features: Smart Air Vent, Flicker-Free Lighting, and Asus Eye Care

#5 ViewSonic XG2530

In our opinion, ViewSonic’s XG2530 is the best value option for gamers who are looking to purchase a FreeSync-compatible 240Hz monitor. ViewSonic does also offer a G-Sync 240Hz monitor (the XG2560), but it doesn’t quite have the price-to-performance ratio that the XG2530 does and, as such, isn’t as good of a pick as the BenQ ZOWIE XL2540 listed above.

But, for the XG2530, at just under $340, it is the second cheapest FreeSync 240Hz display on this list. The XG2530 sports a 1ms response time, a 3-year warranty, and an ergonomically designed stand.

And, while the Acer XF250Q comes in at quite a bit cheaper and is also FreeSync compatible, it doesn’t quite have the picture quality that the XG2530 comes with. It’s not a huge difference, though, and so if you’re looking to save money, you might just be better off going with the Acer XF250Q listed below.

#6 AOC Agon AG271FZ2

If you’re planning on gettin an AMD graphics card and you want a 240Hz monitor with FreeSync compatibility, then the AOC Agon AG271FZ2 might be the option for you. At just under ~$380, the AG271FZ2 does cost more than the two FreeSync-compatible options below. However, it does come with a larger 27-inch screen (compared to their 25-inch displays).

So, if you prefer to have a larger display, the AG271FZ2 is currently one of only a few 27-inch monitors that comes with a 240Hz refresh rate.

The AG271FZ2 also comes with a TN panel that has a 1ms response time, an ergonomic stand, and a 4-year dead pixel warrany, a 4-year advanced replacement warranty, and a 1-year accidental damage warranty.

Overall, if you’re looking for a larger 240Hz monitor to pair with your AMD graphics card, then the AOC Agon AG271FZ2 is probably the best option for you.
