So with all the new information and hype around the new G-SYNC monitors I am left wondering if it's really worth it. So I am looking into buying a monitor now and I have my heart set on a BenQ. But with the recent release of the G-SYNC info i am questioning my choice on purchasing a monitor now or wait x amount of time for a g-sync monitor. I know ASUS has the VG248 monitor that you can buy a gsync upgrade kit for. But I like this BenQ monitor a lot more then the VG248 The only thing holding me back from purchasing the BenQ is the upcoming G-SYNC. So my question is will G-Sync really be all that worth it to wait half a year or more to get it. And Will it really make that big of a difference in gaming. And is it really that revolutionary, I respect everyone's opinion so give me your 2 cents of what you think. It will be very helpful thank you everyone.

I'm not sure why you'd like the BenQ that much more than the Asus. Both get equal reviews, both require some tuning once you buy them.

Every person who witnessed in person viewing of G-sync have stated they'd never play without G-sync again, or similar tech. Unless you can maintain 120 FPS all the time (unfortunately with added latency), you'll either get stutter and slight latency or tearing without G-sync. G-sync allows for a tear free experience without any latency or display induced stutter all without tearing.

I'd definitely get the Asus or wait. BenQ won't have their G-sync monitors until Q3 of 2014, so keep that in mind. It is possible they may have monitor(s) with a kit before, but only the Asus VG248QE has been mentioned as a certainty.

The reason I am so dead set on the BenQ was because I heard how much better the picture quality was over the Asus, the little features that it has and I prefer the way it looks. I have heard that the pwm from the asus hurts a lot of peoples eyes and I have never owned a TN panel before as well which worries me. Is the picture quality not as superior as I have heard it is?

The eye strain seems to be something that few experience, and I don't know what it is, but both brands seem to have issues with it for those who experience this issue. Though the latest BenQ TE model may help. The only way you'll know for sure this is not an issue is to use it. Most people don't have an issue, few do.

As far as which is better image quality, I'm not sure. In comparison to other BenQ 144hz models, the Asus is superior due to inverse ghosting on the BenQ.

Anyways, ready some reviews, forum users tend to be filled with bias and almost never have used both.

A comparison, of an almost identical BenQ model to the Asus...of course the one difference is the flicker free tech...which may or may not be an issue, depending on the person:

You either get the Asus now, or wait a year before buying the BenQ when they have a G-sync version. Not having G-sync is going to be a big deal. I'm personally waiting.
