Sell me on something

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

The following is a dramatic recreation

 

I have a VG248QE

It is 5 years old

It was created with ancient TN technology

The screen is covered in scratches

The taskbar has burnt in

The bezels are larger than my d***

It is nasty beyond repair

 

My VG248QE also has two friends on the left and the right, both non-gaming Dell 1080p TN monitors.

I must replace these monitors or I will die from retinal cancer

 

However, I am just not satisfied with the current market and I have to be very careful picking out new monitors or my instantly fatal autoimmune OCD syndrome will finish me off before the cancer does.

 

Design requirements 

Black (No Silver bottom bezel or red only LEDs even if they can be turned off. Looking at you Asus >:c)

For the love of God, no curved display. This has made finding a display more difficult by a factor of 1,000,000. I wish MSI just made some non curved monitors, I'd probably buy one of those.

Sliiiim bezels

No larger than 27", my desk will break

RGB lighting is a plus because I am a degenerate

 

Display requirements

144hz+

1440p+

IPS

G-Sync or Nvidia compatible FreeSync 

 

An example of a compatible monitor is the Aorus AD27QD, however me and the price are not compatible.

 

Remember, the cheapest possible answer is the best possible answer, and I'm obligated to buy three of these things so every dollar counts.

If you think an ultrawide is a better solution, explain to me why. I watch a lot of TV while gaming or working and have a lot of VS Code and Chrome tabs constantly opened everywhere. I'm just not sure how I'd do that on a single yet wide display.

 

I'm also interested in what is upcoming. For example LG just announced the 27GL850-B which looks looked like a viable option. Seriously God, why is the back of that monitor covered in red plastic, WHY does everyone do this. However maybe there are other monitors soon to be released that might not have that one abysmal flaw that stops me from dropping the premium price for a set of three.

 

I'd love to hear your recommendations.

Sincerely,

Pizza Jailer

If you're not compatible with that price, I got bad news for you because most 1440p 144hz IPS Gsync monitors are around $600 regardless of who you buy it form. PG279Q, XB271HU, AG271QG...

Most of the Nvidia Gsync Compatible FreeSync panels are TN panels though. There's only two that are FreeSync but Gsync compatible; your Gigabyte monitor and the LG 27GL850 that was just announced

I don't like that it doesn't have Height Adjust.  You can jury rig it if you have to save the scratch, but it's a deal breaker for me personally.

You don't even have to DIY a stand, it has VESA mount so you can just buy one for a couple bucks. It would still be by far the cheapest option.

Great value, but like everything made by acer hideous. I'd have to get a triple vesa mounting stand and 3 gallons of holy water to douse the old one in before finally burning it at the stake. And even that doesn't solve the ugly textured finish on the front bezel.

Curvier than my gamer bottom, like everything from MSI. Fan of the RGB lighting but not of the random red plastic in the stand.

The Aorus is the monitor I listed as an example of something that satisfied my needs, its just too expensive to own three of like most 144hzIPS1440p's. As for Acer I just don't respect them as a brand and would rather not look at their name on all my bezels. I guess I'd like to know if something new is coming up the tubes for monitors right now, don't want the same thing to happen like with my 2080 only for it to get SUPERED a few months later.

Sorry mate what you want might not be available at the price point you can afford then :/

 

Unless you consider going ultrawide 3440x1440p to eliminate a screen.

Hey hi hello.

It is me.

The salesman.

I'm here to sell you screens.

 

I think you should consider two matching 4K 32" panels.

This goes entirely against your sales prompt.

Hear me out.

 

I do a significant amount of coding and TV watching as well.

Two panels are perfect.

On one screen, you can open two side-by-side windows, each in an 8:9 aspect ratio.

This is awesome.

This is way better than 16:9.

You can see alot of words and numbers now.

The other panel will masquerade as a TV while you write.

It's the correct aspect ratio so you end up with the least amount of letterboxing/pillarboxing.

 

Forget included RGB.

It's too expensive and limits your options.

Buy good panels and ADD RGB.

You can buy two complete bias lighting kits for like $120.

These aren't your grandpa's LED strips.

These are far better.

Your desk will be okay.

The stands distribute the weight well.

If not, add a new desk into the price.

You will still come out ahead going this route.

 

LG 32MU59-B or similar would work fine.
