As a quick backstory: I had a 60hz TN gaming monitor with a R9 390. I wanted to ascend to 144hz and Freesync. So for around the same price, you can get either this monitor or the AOC G2460PF monitor (which is listed cheaper), which both satisfy the 144hz and Freesync conditions. Between those two monitors, there is really not much differences. Both have a full adjustable vesa mount stand, 144hz refresh rate, 1ms gtg response time, flicker-free lighting, AMD's Freesync technology, average quality OSD controls, included speakers, and other little features.
THE ONLY FEATURE the AOC has over the Viewsonic is the Freesync range of 30-144hz vs the 48-144hz. With my 390, I get 90+fps so I don't ever have to worry about the 48hz minimum Freesync range, so that doesn't really bother me.
What made me choose this monitor over the AOC came down to reviews that pointed out the better display colors (after calibration, kinda sucked at stock settings) and better quality control. A little more expensive, but worth it to me.
Now to list the PROS:
144hz Refresh Rate: You really have no idea how smooth it is over 60hz, until you switch back and forth between the two. Awesome for games too.
AMD Freesync: Seriously, I can't imagine playing games over 60fps and not have some sort of adaptive sync like Freesync or Gsync. On my R9 390, I usually push all my games anywhere from 90fps to over 144fps at the highest settings. So on older games that can play at 144fps, you can use v-sync, and newer games that can't go 144fps will have TEARING (which sucks!). But with that Freesync, don't ever have to worry about that no more. YOU MUST TURN ON DISPLAYPORT 1.2 in the monitor's Setup Menu for Freesync to fully work.
Adjustable stand: Coming from a stand that only allowed a very small angle adjustment, this stand rocks. Specifically the height adjustment and the stand base being able to swivel.
Non-PWM lighting: My old monitor also had it, and can't be considered a con. Apparently helps with eye strain.
Colors: Apparently this monitor has some pretty good colors after calibration and some of the best contrast levels among TN panels. Viewing angles are a con on all TN based panels, but I look at the monitor straight on, so not relevant to me. Also non-glare display.
THE ONLY CON:
As I mentioned above, the monitor has a minimum 48hz for Freesync, compared to the similar AOC monitor. But this is not relevant to me as I never go to that low of an fps in any of the games I play. The con is so minuscule for me that this product is still a five star rating and probably doesn't affect that many people's decisions.
My display settings: Contrast (55), Brightness (25), Color Adjust (User Color: R97, G97, B100), Sharpness (75), Dynamic Contrast (off), Eco Mode (Standard), Blue Light Filter (100), Viewmode (Standard), Smartsync (off), Freesync (on), Response Time (Advanced), Low Input Lag (Ultra Fast), Black Stabilization (4), Advanced DCR (0). Then I used Windows Calibrate Display Colors to lower the Gamma value to ~25% from the bottom, because it is way too high. Other than that, you can tweak it to whatever is most comfortable to you.
BRIGHTNESS: 60 (Adjust based on the light level around you)
COLOR: user color, Red = 95, Green = 95, Blue = 99
MANUAL IMAGE ADJUST:
DYNAMIC CONTRAST: Off
ECO MODE: Standard
BLUE LIGHT FILTER: 0
ADVANCED IMAGE ADJUST:
FREESYNC: On (make sure to enable this through your GPU driver, and set Windows to 144hz via Settings>System>Display>Advanced Display Settings>Display Adapter Properties>Monitor>Screen Refresh Rate. Otherwise you will see neither freesync nor 144hz.)
RESPONSE TIME: Advanced
LOW INPUT LAG: Ultra fast
BLACK STABILIZATION: 3
ADVANCED DCR: 0
Alright, with that out of the way, let me say this: the XG2401 really delivers. It has almost everything you could expect, from super low input lag (measured by pcmonitors.info to be 3.38ms, which is incredibly fast for a modern display) to customization of color and response time (how fast pixels will change brightness/color). 144hz really does make a difference, and it's visibly much smoother even on the desktop or web browsing, let alone video games.
Speaking of video games, this monitor also supports freesync. If you have an AMD card that supports freesync, that means it will essentially force the monitor to adapt to the refresh rate of the graphics card. That means you can run your games at an unlocked frame rate (vsync off) and there will be absolutely no stuttering or tearing, as long as you don't go above 144fps. Some games are fairly easy to run at 144fps, like Rocket League, while others are much more demanding, but freesync means that anything you run at, up to 144fps, will look perfectly smooth.
This is a TN panel, so color and black level aren't particularly great compared to an IPS LCD. Despite that, this monitor actually has some pretty dang good color reproduction; nevertheless, colors might look a little dull. Don't let this put you off, though: the tradeoff with a TN panel is that while black level, color, and viewing angles suffer somewhat, the response time will be significantly faster, which is essential to a quality 144hz experience. A slow response time leads to a lot of ghosting and blurring, and the effect of 144fps won't shine through; a fast response time will make each individual frame stand out, and it'll look hyper-smooth. The optimal setting for response time at 144hz is "advanced," as "standard" is too slow and blurry, while "ultra fast" has too strong of an overdrive, causing distracting shadows behind fast moving parts of the image.
On the outside, the XG2401 is a sleek and unobtrusive monitor. It's not flashy and annoying, and red undertones are hidden behind the monitor and at its base. Also, the power LED is not visible from a normal angle, which is good, as it won't distract when you're playing in the dark. The monitor has a matte finish on the screen, which has its ups and downs; it cuts down on the bold glare of a smooth glass screen, but it also spreads it over the screen, dulling the image quality a bit if you're not playing in the dark. The monitor's control buttons are located under the screen, where they're somewhat easy to find and use.
Overall, the XG2401 is an excellent product and a great value. While the image quality (color, black level) won't blow you away, it delivers on a quality 144hz freesync experience, and the price is low considering this. Recommended.
Now that I have used this for a few months I am very glad I saved the money. Playing games like PUBG, black ops 4, and fornite I have seen framerates right in the range g-sync is meant for (100-140 hz) and have not been able to visibly notice any stuttering.
The 144hz refresh definitely makes a difference in the smoothness of the games and am really happy with my choice.
I do notice some of the washed out colors of the TN panel but once I got used to it I would still trade that for the lower input lag especially at this price.
My only complaint on durability is the smal plastic hoop that attaches to the back for cable management. It is tricky to install properly and seems like it would easily break.

If this is the your first 144Hz monitor make sure to set it up correctly in Windows, one of the biggest mistakes I see is people leaving their computer set to 60Hz so they gain no benefit from this monitor at all. I'll paste instructions on how to do this below. Speaking of 144Hz it's just amazing, you will notice the difference at anything above 60fps, but the real sweet spot is 100fps+, that's when you'll really feel the extra smoothness.
On Windows 10, head to Settings > System > Display > Advanced Display Settings > Display Adapter Properties. Click the “Monitor” tab, choose your monitor’s advertised refresh rate from the “Screen Refresh Rate” list, and click “OK”.
On Windows 7 or 8, right-click the desktop and select “Screen Resolution”. Select your monitor if you have multiple monitor and then click the “Advanced Settings” link. Click the “Monitor” tab and choose the refresh rate from the “Screen Refresh Rate” box.
User colour mode offers better gamma, colour and contrast than your typical TN. There's no noticeable input lag in the ultra fast mode and very little smearing or ghosting thanks to the high refresh rate and pixel response.
As usual with factory presets brightness is way too high which accentuates the small amount of backlight bleed at each side of the panel. This is only noticeable on a fully black screen however, and on the plus side mine arrived with zero dead/stuck pixels/sub pixels and no other blemish to speak of.
Would have been five stars if the design was a bit less gamer and the OSD menu a little less awkward to navigate but it does the job.
The neck itself doesn’t rotate but the whole stand does due to a plate on the bottom, which is a good design imo.
144hz and low response is a game changer and essential if you want to enjoy games.
warning: going back to 60hz is near impossible, seriously.
However I must point out the screen settings are disastrously bad and left a bad impression. They don’t make any sense and are counter intuitive; thankfully rarely have to touch them but they are very bad trust me.
