The Pixio PX243 is a 24 inch Full HD Monitor from Pixio, launched in the year 2022. It comes with a 8-bit VA panel with Anti-glare/Matte (3H) finish.
It can display a max resolution of 1920 x 1080 @ 165 Hz with a pixel density of 92 ppi.
After screen size and resolution, the next important spec to look for in a Display is its Color Reproduction Accuracy (defined by its color gamut specification).
Speaking of which, this monitor features 112% sRGB color gamut coverage. The color quality on this monitor will be Lifelike! Thus, this display will also be useful for professionals who are into photo editing and color grading business.
Understanding the Color Gamut Specification
Color gamut specification of a display is a measure of the range of colors that the monitor can display.
What this means is, this specification determines the ability of a display to produce accurate colors. A monitor with low gamut coverage will miss out on some colors (such as deep red), so the image produced will look "washed out" in colors.
Different manufacturers use different units to specify color gamut. Such as — sRGB, NTSC 1953, DCI P3 etc.
For example, the color gamut of this Monitor is specified using sRGB.
But you don't need to worry about that, here is a chart that you can use to choose a Monitor with good color accuracy.
Now, after color gamut, the static contrast ratio of a Display has equally important role in picture quality.
What is Static Contrast ?
A display with high enough static contrast ratio will produce natural deep blacks while a display with low contrast ratio (<1000:1) will produce images that look dusty as shown in below image.
As you imagine, this will rob your experience considerably.
Think of static contrast as another dimension to details — just like resolution. To put it into perspective, a Display with low contrast ratio will produce less shades of colors, thus lesser detail overall.
If given a choice, always prefer a FHD Display with high contrast ratio over a 4K Display with low contrast ratio.
This monitor is rated with a static contrast ratio of 4000 : 1, enough to produce deep blacks and eye-catching visuals.
Coming to brightness of this Display, it can go as bright as 350 nits. The backlight used on its panel is W-LED.
If you are going to use this display primarily for gaming, make sure to take a Monitor that features the lowest input lag and response times.
The input lag on this Monitor is 5 ms and its minimum response time is 1 ms. Pick this one if you are a gamer.
What is Input lag ?
This lag is the amount of time at which your key-presses/mouse movements changes the content of your Monitor. Though, this won't matter much if you aren't into competitive/FPS games like call of duty.
For best of both worlds, look for a Monitor that comes with an input lag and response time of less than 20ms.
