2. GAEMS M240
24-Inch Portable Gaming Monitor
||1920 x 1080
Even if you tech savvy guy, the name GAEMS is something you might be not familiar with and same is the case with me I wasn’t aware that this tech brand exists. As the name suggests, GAEMS is a company that releases products specifically aimed at gamers, more like designed by Gamers for Gamers. They have a list of other products which we will cover in this review guide later on but let’s stick with GAEMS M240 Portable Gaming Monitor for now on.
Second in our list of Best Gaming Portable Monitors is the GAEMS M240 which is 24-Inch Portable Gaming Monitor. Yes, you heard that right, a 24-inch portable monitor. It features a 24inch LED TN display panel with an aspect ratio of 16:9, it has a resolution of 1920 x 1080 and have great viewing angles.
I know the 24-inch screen size and the word portable doesn’t go hand in hand but it seems like they designed this monitor specifically for gamer who can’t bear gaming on a small monitor. I would also not prefer games playing on small monitor but if I had to choose between a 24-inch or 16-inch portable monitor I would go for a smaller one. Though it all depends upon personal preference.
Though gaming on big screen is wonderful experience and if carrying the weight around isn’t a big issue then why not. Since it is a FHD 24-inch screen so the gaming experience should be good but the performance and my experience so far with this monitor was just in the middle. Not to good also not that bad just in the middle.

GAEMS M240 Build Quality and Design
GAEMS M240 has unique design and It isn’t your typical desk 24-inch monitor and has this sense of gamer DNA embedded in it’s design. The TN display panel is fitted into matte-black finished frame with a curved back and has easel-type stand that help the monitor to stand. It also helps you achieve idea 90 degree viewing angle and double up as carry handle.
Since it is a 24-inch monitor so you shouldn’t expect it to be lightweight. The M240 weighs around 8 pounds which exactly tells you that this isn’t a light monitor but provided it’s handle is what makes it portable and can be easily carried from room to room. And it comes with plastic cover that snaps on the front panel in order to protect from the screen from damage and has a rubberized padding on the back, so if you are up for road trip so carrying it won’t be a problem.
The frame it plastic and the the side bezels and the frame enclosing the speakers have a glossy finish to it which can get little scratches on them if kept in rough place but overall build quality is satisfying and doesn’t feel cheap at all but also doesn’t give a sense of premium build quality.
There are six small button at the bottom bezel and have backlit. I found it difficult to reach out to those buttons when trying to arrange brightness or browse through different settings. Also, I find that the buttons are not that good and didn’t responded to my every touch and I had to press them on average of two times. But fortunately the GAMES M240 comes with a small remote that let you make all the adjustments without the urge to use the buttons on the screen.
GAEMS M240 Display
The GAEMS M240 features 24-inch LED TN display panel with native resolution of 1920 x 1080 @60Hertz which is good and it means you can have a good gaming experience. The screen has matte finished anti-glate coating so that there are no reflections from the screen.
Since it is a TN panel so you might have few concerns relating to the viewing angle. But in our review we found that the M240 handled the viewing angle test pretty perfectly and color accuracy was good but still not as good you get from an IPS panel. The screen isn’t that bright and I wished it was brighter because in outdoor lighting it seems to be struggling.
For Gaming test I connected PlayStation 4 and Asus Zephyrus GM501 gaming laptop and played a couple of games including the Witcher 3, Need for Speed Payback, Rainbow Six Siege, Outlast. The overall gaming experience was pretty satisfying, the GAEMS M240 handled the dark scale in outlast pretty well but when tested it in daylight the display was average.
For ports selection the GAEMS M240 has Two HDMI for input and one for Output, two HDMI ports for input means you can connect two devices with it at the same time.
I was little disappointed with the port selection, having DVI or VGA port is arguable but they should have included a display port. Also, there are not any USB ports.

Apart from that the GAEMS M240 also have 4 built in speakers out of which are two normal speakers and two are subwoofer. The speakers have better than average sound quality with no distortion. Also, the bass response was good and didn’t get distorted but if you want glass-shaking bass experience then you connect it with the subwoofer using the subwoofer outpur around back. Using 4 speakers they achieve Dynamic sound technology which if put in simple words is surround sound experience.
