Do you wonder if you should get a 144Hz monitor? Want to see the difference between a 144Hz (or 120Hz, 165Hz, 180Hz, 200Hz, 240Hz for that matter) vs a standard 60Hz monitor? We’ll, there’s definitely a noticeable difference and you will notice a smoother image as the refresh rate gets higher. The noticeable improvement will get lesser and lesser as the refresh rate gets higher and this is because of diminishing returns. There’s a much bigger visual improvement going from 60Hz to 140Hz than going from 160Hz to 240Hz, and fewer people are going to notice these smaller improvements. Professional eSports players or gamers with very fast reaction times will definitely notice so going from a 144Hz to a 240Hz monitor is going to be an improvement for these pros. So is a 144Hz monitor worth it? Most gamers will answer that with a yes.
Okay, let’s dive right into what you came here for. We’ll now present the difference between a high refresh rate monitor (120Hz in the first video) and a 60Hz monitor and let you be the judge.
