If you are looking for an affordable gaming monitor and are satisfied with a refresh rate of 120 Hz, you should keep an eye on Lenovo’s G27e-20 and G24e-20. Both monitors will be released at the end of the year for an attractive price.
New monitors in 27- and 24-inch
The Lenovo G27e-20 and G24e-20 rely largely on the same features, but differ primarily in terms of screen diagonal, which measures 27 inches for the G27e-20 and 23.8 inches for the G24e-20. Both monitors have a resolution of Full HD (1,920 x 1,080 pixels) and rely on a VA panel with WLED backlight and a viewing angle of 178 degrees.
They offer a fairly high contrast ratio of 3,000:1 (dynamic even 3,000,000:1) and a maximum brightness of 300 cd/m³. The color depth is 8 bits and 16.7 million colors can be displayed. Both monitors cover 95% of the sRGB color space.
Interesting for gamers is also the low response time of only 1 ms (MPRT) and the refresh rate of 100 Hz by default, which can be overclocked to 120 Hz, though. AMD FreeSync Premium and a dedicated Game Mode developed by Lenovo are also supported. An Eyesafe and TÜV Low Blue Light certification is also on board.
In terms of ports, buyers will have to accept a few compromises due to the low price. Only 1x HDMI 2.0 and 1x DisPlayPort 1.2 are available. Additionally, there is a 3.5 mm jack output for headphones.
The scope of delivery also includes an HDMI cable in addition to the power cable. Both Lenovo G27e-20 and G24e-20 monitors are tiltable, have integrated cable management, and are compatible with VESA 100 x 100 mm.
