For around that price I'd probably get this instead:

Maybe this if you don't care about the higher refresh rate that the above one has:

thanks for your suggestion

i am sorry i didn't mention it but i want an ips monitor so pb277q doesn't interest me

as for viewsonic i think 32 inch monitor would be too big for me as i sit very close to the monitor

there is a 27 inch model which got the same price as the monitor i think on buying so i could afford it

but can you tell me please if there is any particular reason i should avoid buying vz27aq

I'd recommend a higher refresh rate...

Acer ET322QU (31.5") is 75Hz 1440p IPS...but 32" display -- $279.89

next one down is the Acer VG271U (27") 144 Hz 144p IPS, but higher price tag -- $399.99

 

If you can live with 60Hz 1440p IPS...there are definitely better options.

ASUS PB278Q 27" ...100% sRGB -- $325

BenQ BL2420PT 24" -- $229.00

Acer G7 G257HU 25" -- $251

No reason against the VZ27AQ, other than I do not think it's a good value (you can get similar specs for less money). 

 

Therefore, if IPS is a requirement, here are some other alternatives that should fit the bill:

If you were wanting IPS for the colors, VA panels can be as good. In addition to having better contrast ratios, deeper blacks, and nowhere close to the screen glow and backlight bleeding that usually plague IPS panels.

 

Consider this curved 27" 1440p 144Hz VA for only $310

If you are looking for exceedingly good colors, consider this curved 27" 1440p 60Hz quantum dot VA with Freesync

If you are dead set on an IPS panel, at least settle for one that has good QA/support, factory calibration, slim bezels, and a baller stand


Awareness is key. Never enough, even in the face of futility. Speak the truth as if you may never get to say it again. This world is full of ugly. Change it they say. The only way is to reveal the ugly. To change the truth you must first acknowledge it. Never pretend it isn't there. Never bend the knee.
