Acer Predator GN246HLBbid review

 

The Acer GN246HLBbid is a 24in monitor aimed at avid gamers, but you'll need the right graphics card to get the most out of it. Here's our Predator GN246HLBbid review.

The GN246HLBbid may have a fast refresh rate, but the relatively high price, unimpressive colour accuracy and limited viewing angles mean it isn't great value.

great value

 

I had to switch the frame rate up to 144hz in the settings because it wasn't default Orange doesn't match my rig but not a big deal. Would like to see more colors

144hz Super affordable 1080p is expected but still a pro Nice colors (didn't need to adjust at all) No dead pixels (at least not yet)

It's a nice monitor.

 

It works exactly how it's supposed to. It's big, bright, and beautiful.

Not really a huge con, but it takes longer than I'd expect for the screen to turn on if you manually turn it off. Longer than it does for my pc to fully boot.

Great monitor for the price!

 

It's a good all-around monitor, and it's easy to set it up to reach 144Hz.

Nothing much. The stand doesn't allow the screen to stand perfectly perpendicular to my desk, but I could just buy a new stand.

Absolutely Amazing.

 

Whilst I don't have the money, my graphics card (GTX 970) could run two of these potentially, and I would gladly do so. If you're looking for a good 144hz gaming monitor, take a good look at this one before the others, as I would highly recommend it

-This is an amazing monitor for the price you pay. I got this when it was on sale for $200 and I would say it's worth every cent. -The monitor comes with everything you need to run it in 144hz already, incredibly easy set-up, and turning on the 144hz...

Settings weren't quite as I wanted them at first, but were easily fine-tuned within minutes.

Blue dot... WHY?!

 

My family owns about 10 monitors, and none of them have a dead pixel. Very disappointing to buy one with a dead pixel.

Works as expected. 144 frames per second. Looks nice. However...

Dead pixel. Permanent blue dot in the center of the screen. Very distracting and ugly.

Decent monitor. Arrived damaged. J

 

Need to take better care with shipping. I still love Newegg however despite this one disappointment.

Overall the monitor is decent. 1080p, 144hz

The shipping box arrived badly damaged as if something fell onto the box. It has caused some distortion in one area of the monitor with the display. If this had not occurred I would be happy with the purchase.

Awesome monitor

 

I think that for the price and what you get with this monitor is spectacular. I have not tried the 3D feature only because I do not own a compatible graphics card, but is definitely a plus when I upgrade and can use it.

Has everything I was looking for. I have not seen any ghosting on any of the games I have played. Shipping was fast. No dead pixels or any damage to the monitor on arrival.

My only con is that the brightness of this monitor at 100% is way to bright for me, but its not that big of a deal and is an easy fix.
