    As some one who earns 550ish euro's a month(hi romania) i find it ok , i can't afford to spend more then 300e on anything PC related TBH , even for that amount i will save for a few month's.
    So yeah i don't mind TN panel's since usually they are cheap and the image is good enough , as long as they don't use some rubbish panel.

    Not sure why they keep releasing 1080p TN......

    That is a bit of a silly comment.
    I am going to stop there....and let you think about it.

    This is not a bad deal at all I might pick one up for my Daughter as we still use a regular 1080p @ 60 hz Acer.We have a Gtx 980 so I hope we can push that to 144hz.

    I like the diagonal, 24.5" sound great! (I’m sick of reading news about 32" monitors… I don’t have room for that!)
    I like Freesync, 144Hz, and the reasonable price (sort of).
    But I don’t like that it’s TN :). VA or even IPS would be good. I’m not buying a TN monitor ever again.

    Its almost as if some people prefer cheap, high refresh rate over panel quality.

    I know people who still use 19" 4:3 monitors (think 1280x960) today, simply because their income is way too small for upgrading (living in failed economy countries)

    When they eventually manage to gather enough money to change something, it's good that there are options !
    Not so long ago a shitty 60hz FHD 21.5" TN was more expensive than this one... so it's great that now you can get 144Hz with Freesync for that money !

    Back in the day most people I knew would gladly sacrifice image quality for a higher framerate. I'm still of the opinion that high fps is better than image quality when it comes to conventional shooters. Of course, everyone would like both, but smoothness of motion definitely adds a feeling of realism that image quality alone can't provide.

    If the screen is not too close to the eyes then it can look OK. But I would also say that 1080p on 24.5" is too little, the DPI will be too large. But of course it i suits those with not the fastest GPUs and those who want high framerates rather well.
    1440p can be a bit too heavy in some games.

    First to the people who said quality is bad, for me 1080 is perfect for 24 and i dont need 27 and 1440p just lowers the performance
    However the AOC G2460PF is cheaper and more or less the same, or am I mistaken?

    Yep, I've got 1080p 24" 144Hz & I'm happy with it. I've got AOC G2460PG, which is one of the cheapest G-sync 144Hz monitors of the time, and I'm happy with the image quality even if it is TN. It's 100% sRGB coverage, but the viewing angle sensitivity (which is not perfect even if you sit directly in front of it - top to bottom variation that can't be avoided) and contrast are probably not the best out there. I'd be interested in having a monitor with better viewing angle & contrast capabilities as long as motion clarity was just as good as TN 144Hz, not sure if IPS & other 144Hz is as good as TN 144Hz in terms of clarity - TN have always been famed for speed & clarity of motion.
    (my above deliberations concern this)
    1080p on 24" is ok, I do actually disable AA in games to gain higher frame rate, but mainly because modern AA techniques like TAA blur the screen, so I'd rather have jaggies which I don't notice in fast paced action anyway. I would rather have 1440p in 24" though, and I'm sure that this would cure a lot of jaggies, even without enabling AA, but I'd probably need to invest in a ti version of card in order to get the experience I'm having with my GTX 1070 and even then I think it would be slightly less frames per second given that large resolution increase - it's 77% more pixels to drive, so I don't think a ti card will make up that difference!
