Got two monitors that I have that capacitors died in, whatever I'm lazy.

Need a new secondary monitor, currently have a 24" BenQ 120hz that I like pretty well.

Any recommendations for a good secondary monitor atm? Maybe even for black friday/cyber monday?

60hz and 6ms is terrible for gaming. IPS panel gaming monitors that have a decent resolution are still stupid expensive.

60hz terrible for gaming? What game are you getting 100+ fps in at 1440p to make that much of a difference? Maybe Team Fortress 2 & Counter-Strike, but who the fuck cares about those games?

don't buy a cheap monitor, save up some $$ and get one that isn't balls, it'll last you years and will be a treat for your teat

I have this terrible Hanns-G HG281D that I pulled out of an arcade machine I bought for $95 from a closing Tilt. Took out the monitor and sold the cabinet for $100

I'm laughing at these. "FAMOUS MAKER" means crap, but they are on the low end of the price spectrum

This is the one I'm looking at. They have some "perfect pixel" models on there but they are matte screens, and I'm not sure how I feel about that.

Did you get the matte or glossy? Curious because the forums seem to indicate the matte is actually more like a semi-gloss as opposed to full matte.

I have the matte which is semi gloss. I have HUGE windows in the area where I have my PC. No way could I go full glossy even with curtains drawn.

I have my 24" as my second monitor now and there's little room for much else.

Did you do the VESA mount mod to yours or just using the stand it came with? Wouldn't mind grabbing a second one at some point but I'd like different way to mount them if I did.
