Good monitors under 300

Good monitors under 300 Economy Insights

For some of their models, manufacturers provide a special backlight mode with the so-called “black frame insertion” (ULMB, ELMB, etc.). When activated, the backlight switches to pulsed mode and works in sync with the screen refresh rate, synchronizing the frame rate as well. CRT monitors work on the same principle.

Low input lag

The names of the Low Input-lag or Extreme Low Input-lag functions available for activation sound attractive, but in reality they have little effect (or sometimes not at all), since the vast majority of gaming models have no problems with this parameter even without additional settings, to which is very demanding advanced players.

An important positive feature of a modern monitor can be recognized as Flicker-Free backlighting (flicker-free). The vast majority of gaming displays have it, but there are exceptions in which a hybrid system is used (flicker appears only in a certain range of brightness changes) or the flicker frequency is almost always at the level of 200-400 Hz, which can (but not necessarily) lead to increased fatigue.

Another useful function (with some "buts"), according to the author, can be recognized as an additional on-screen sight, which the monitor "draws" on its own - strictly in the center of the screen. This, of course, is not the choice of the most honest players, but you will go to any lengths to win. In this matter, we, perhaps, will do without advice.
