PRISM+ F240i Review | @manilashaker

 

In today’s gaming monitor market, finding affordable options is quite feasible. Many brands provide quality monitors with high refresh rates, offering gamers a wide selection. When choosing a gaming monitor, one often faces the decision between prioritizing higher resolution or a high refresh rate.

For enthusiasts of story-driven open-world games seeking immersive experiences, opting for higher resolution displays is recommended. On the other hand, competitive gamers may find high refresh rates more advantageous. Today, we’re looking into the features of the PRISM+ F240i.

PRISM+ is a Singaporean brand that offers various types of gaming monitors, with the F240i being one of their budget offerings.

Like any other budget gaming monitor, out of the box, you only get a VESA mount, the stand, a power brick, some screws, and a display port.

Design

The PRISM+ F240i boasts a sleek design aesthetic. With its 24-inch size and thin bezels, courtesy of the brand’s ZeroBezel design, it presents a modern appearance. Constructed mainly from plastic, the monitor features an aluminum stand for durability.

On its rear side, you’ll find an HDMI 2.0 port, a DisplayPort 1.4 port, and a 3.5mm audio port, providing ample connectivity options. Additionally, blue LED lighting adorns the bottom edges of the chin, resembling a speaker, adding a futuristic flair to its overall look. In essence, the PRISM+ F240i combines simplicity with a hint of futurism in its design.

Display

The display of the PRISM+ F240i features an FHD+ resolution, making it one of their swiftest monitors with an impressive 180 Hz refresh rate. Utilizing an IPS panel, the display ensures accurate colors, which is advantageous for productivity tasks. Prism+ claims that the F240i’s display supports up to 120% of the sRGB color gamut, promising vivid and lifelike colors.

Furthermore, the monitor boasts a rapid 1ms response time, coupled with its fast refresh rate, ensuring smooth and responsive gameplay. This combination of high refresh rate, accurate colors, and swift response time makes the PRISM+ F240i an enticing option for both gaming and productivity needs.

Performance

In our experience, the PRISM+ F240i is surprisingly good and performs well for its price. However, like everyone else, we all have concerns about our budget and often opt for more expensive options for reassurance. The moment I used this monitor, I was genuinely satisfied. Whether it’s your main monitor or your secondary one, the PRISM+ F240i works great.

At the back, there’s an analog for controls, and we were surprised by how much you can customize this monitor. It was hard to navigate at first, but once you get used to it, it won’t be a problem.

From its menu, you can control its sharpness, shadow balance, color hue, and adaptive sync. They also offer different gaming modes like MOBA, RTS, and FPS modes. Since it uses an IPS panel, its viewing angles are great, and it’s also vibrant and bright. At this price point, monitors usually offer a TN or VA panel. If they offer an IPS panel, it’s usually paired with a standard 60-75Hz refresh rate.

If you haven’t experienced a high refresh rate monitor and you switch to this gaming monitor, you’ll instantly notice the difference and how much smoother a 180Hz monitor can be. Such a shift may render returning to a standard Hz monitor challenging, a transition I personally encountered upon stopping Valorant gameplay.

For optimal settings, the Natural color profile is recommended for its enhanced vibrancy. While games like Valorant benefit greatly from the monitor’s fast refresh rate, titles like League of Legends and Honkai Star Rail may not capitalize as much on high refresh rates. Nonetheless, the display excels across various gaming genres and proves equally adept for entertainment and productivity tasks.

Price

The PRISM+ F240i, priced at PHP7,999, offers incredible value as a bang-for-the-buck gaming monitor. With its minimalist design and impressive performance, it’s packed with features that enhance your gaming experience. The display quality is commendable, accompanied by a fast response time, making it a solid choice for anyone looking to upgrade their current setup. If you’re in the market for a gaming monitor that delivers both quality and affordability, the PRISM+ F240i is a perfect option to consider.
