Predator X25 Monitor – Amazingly Fast 360Hz Gaming
This powerful 24.5-inch 1920 x 1080 IPS gaming monitor boasts a super speedy 360 Hz refresh rate to give players the smoothest possible animation.

Covering 99% of the sRGB colour gamut, games look as realistic as possible.
The Predator X25 can also adjust brightness and colour temperature automatically based on environmental light. With LightSense, the Predator X25 detects the amount of ambient light in the viewing environment and automatically adjusts brightness settings to maximize viewing comfort. AdaptiveLight automatically adjusts the monitor’s backlights to suit the ambient light in the room, while ProxiSense reminds gamers to take a break after a set amount of time.
