Hi, please help me pick the right monitor for:
  • online first-person shooters (CS:GO, Battlefield etc.);
  • movies;
  • reading websites and working with Word/PDF documents.
I'm ready to spend ~350$ at most. A GPU that I'm thinking to use it with is likely a GTX 1660.

  • Have no noticeable pixels/blur/ghosting/overshoot/any stuff that may tire my eyes and/or fatigue me.
  • Have no defects or issues like flickering etc.
  • Be highly responsive (fully controllable crosshair movement that responds to mouse movement as fast and presicely as possible).
I did some research which led me to just 3 choices: AOC C24G1, MSI MAG241C, Samsung C24FG73.
I found complaints about noticeable blur and visible pixels, uneven/too bright backlight (bleeding?..) on the AOC, high number of defective MSI MAG241C units (bad pixels, screen "blueness" or some other troubles). As for the Samsung - you can read some reviews below:

MSI Optix MAG241C or AOC C24G1?
AOC C24G1 vs Samsung C24FG73
Samsung CFG70 weird responsiveness issue (CFG70 and CFG73 have the same VA panel) - confirmed in the review

VA response time is 4 ms compared to 1 ms TN, and the Motion Blur Reduction function ("1 ms MPRT") messes with brightness + causes eye fatigue.

May be there's no good and fast VA monitor for online FPS and I should go for TN? E.g. iiyama GB2560HSU-B1, LG 24GM79G-B, AOC G2590PX.

On the other hand, 144Hz TN monitors have the other visual issue - inversion artifacts (scan lines).

Id suggest an Acer KG271- i have it, its so dope. 1ms response, 144 hz, 1920x1080 full HD- csGO looks so much smoother on it than on my previous 66 hz monitor and movies are completely HD with gorgeous colours. Highkey recommend it, its a bargain, too!
