While the majority of "research" and tests I've seen done on the subject points to almost everyone being able to see a perceptible difference up until the low hundreds (arguably why 120/144Hz have settled as the "main" high frame rate options), I also don't think there's any possibility that 200+ Hz ever becomes a mainstream frame rate. 1080p will follow 720p into the graveyard of old standards long before 240Hz has a chance to become more than a niche platform used any wider than those pursuing high level competitive eSports.
I think 240hz is needed for realistic VR experiences. Because lower than that your eyes know something is off.
I may be wrong there. But in terms of VR headsets the difference in 120hz and 240hz is apparently pretty big.

Oh yeah for VR it's absolutely beneficial, but I think in this context they're best considered their own separate product class rather than a subcategory of conventional displays.

I had an Xbox One and used a 24 inch Full HD monitor (Acer R241Y) and it was great. Upgraded to Series X last week and bought a 27 inch 1440p 144 Hz monitor for £240! I thought to myself should I get 4k and be capped at 60 FPS (4k monitors are usually 60 Hz) so I spent ages researching.

Concluded that I don’t need 4k since I have a 4k 60 Hz tv downstairs. Here is a link to the monitor I have now: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Samsung-LC2.../dp/B07FCM5WXF. The price has gone up significantly to when I bought it but it does go on sale. There are no speakers however, I bought Logitech Z200 and they get the job done.

Now I have 1440p 120 Hz (max on series x 120 Hz) and supported games run silky smooth

EDIT: I have been spoilt with 120 Hz to the point where 60 Hz looks fuzzy to me (and that’s jumping from 30 fps on og xbox one so 60 fps at the time looked amazing)

240hz?
Isnt it true that some people cant even notice the different between 120hz and 60hz?
This is a good article about it https://www.pcgamer.com/uk/how-many-...ye-really-see/


Its pretty deep but from what I can gather at 240hz you can not really tell the difference. But at the same time it 'feels' more like real life motion if that makes sense.

Although this is an interesting article on the subject as well.
https://www.nature.com/articles/srep07861 - humans perceive visual flicker artifacts at rates over 500 Hz when a display includes high frequency spatial edges
Ive played gamea at 60hz and 120hz and honestly cant tell much of a difference. You get used to playing different games at different framerates but it does feel weird going from a 30 hz game to 60hz or vice versa
