If you're an avid competitive gamer looking for a monitor with a high refresh rate and low response time, the Dell AW2524H is a strong choice, providing a smooth and responsive gaming experience. However, its smaller screen and lower resolution might not be ideal for productivity tasks or high-definition media consumption. Conversely, the LG DualUp has a unique, tall aspect ratio and higher resolution, making it better suited for productivity, especially if managing multiple windows is a priority, but it's not designed for competitive gaming due to its lower refresh rate and lack of variable refresh rate support. The Dell will save you money and excel in fast-paced gaming, whereas the LG is pricier but more optimized for work and casual use. Give Feedback

Christian Eberle | March 2023
"If you have the system for it, the Alienware AW2524H is the perfect display to show off next level frame rates and control response. With higher contrast and color volume than its 360 Hz competition, it currently has no equal."
