    1440 144hz is what I bought to run with a Series X (Obviously it tops out at 120hz)

    What's the difference in price for the monitors your looking at?

    Not always, but that’s what triggers the bug.


    Automatic updates, and remote pushing of games to install is a big benefit.


    I’m very happy with 1440p120 on my Dell 2721DGFA for £280.

    I was just thinking at 1440p the Series S wouldn't hit high enough frame rates enough to make 144hz worth while?

    Don’t think many are 120hz? 144hz just enables 120fps which is one of the big benefits for next gen on games like cod.

    series S only runs 1080p anyway so would go for high hz

    Just found that I still have a 14 day trial for Game Pass Ultimate that needs to be redeemed by the 31st. You can't apply it to an account that has had gold or game pass before, so anyone that's making a new account/is new to Xbox, just trust me and I'll send it over. First come and all that. :)

    Starting to find it annoying now when waiting for friends in some online games, as they haven't upgraded to the new consoles yet. It loads too damn fast!

    Equally, don't understand Instant On anymore. My headphones will turn the console on and by the time my TV loads up, the console is already sat waiting. :p

    Instant on is useful for updates but required for remote play so I keep mine on so I can play from my pc or Android tablet.

    There are quite a few games that run at 1440p.

    instant on kind of came when its no longer needed, it was something that would have real value in the last gen when loading times were really bad.

    I still havent seen it work, but my games load as quick as PC now anyway so not a huge deal, and from internal storage ff15 is way faster than on pc.

    Also I think the consoles max at 120fps? so 144hz has no benefit, (not that I think 144hz has a practical benefit over 120 anyway, I think its placebo at that point).

    Fingers crossed for you, hate using yodel for cheaper things but for a next gen console i'd be super anxious waiting for it to be delivered after some of the issues i've had with them before.

    I want to get one too but can’t justify it for the one game I want to play gears .
