Specifications of 1080p resolution, a 144Hz refresh rate, and a 1ms response time should be the bare minimum for any gamer interested in a new monitor. And you shouldn't settle for less than 24 inches, either. You need some real estate so you can see every detail. And if you're like me, you probably want to get all that without going broke. Lucky for you the HP 25mx is as low as it gets while still meeting a lot of that criteria.
The 25mx also uses AMD FreeSync technology so you can get fluid responsiveness while you play. It synchronizes your refresh rate with your AMD graphics card to reduce stutters and screen tears. The micro-edge display does its best to eliminate the bezel so all you see is what you put on screen with no bezels and an ultra-wide viewing experience. That's also a nice feature in case you want to set up multiple monitors.
Find the best possible viewing angle with a height adjustable monitor that has a 100mm range of travel. It also has VESA mounting so you can attach it to an arm or the wall.
The 400 nits of brightness will help with darker games. Other features include low blue light and ambient lighting to help reduce eye fatigue during long gaming sessions.
It's covered by an HP warranty, and you can find a lot of good customer reviews over at Best Buy where users give it 4.7 stars out of 5 based on 554 reviews.
