Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello guys, 

 

with the launch of the 30 series I'm probably going to upgrade (not now, maybe in January or something) and therefore I'd be looking for a monitor to replace my BenQ Zowie XL2411,

 

Here is what I'd be looking for :

-IPS or VA panel 

-1440p or up

- >100Hz refresh rate

-less than 7ms response time

-good contrast ratio 

-good whites (high nits)

-g-sync (if posssible)

 

My budget is around 600$ 

 

I've found many monitors which fit these assets however I have no idea on which one to choose.

I have 2 LG 27GN850-B's and couldn't be happier with the choice. Here's a review of the LG 27GL850-B, which uses the exact same panel. The 27GN850-B is just the 2020 model.

 

Edit: Good luck on your search for a 3080. My Amazon order was canceled automatically after they couldn't deliver it on the promised date. Now i'm also on the search again. It almost seems there is no inventory at all out there. And the few cards that are there, are in the hands of scalpers selling them for 1000€+.

I believe the GL model has USB hub, while the GN version doesn't and ~$30 less expensive. Otherwise they're the same.

The LG and Dell monitors are very similar from what i've heard. But as i have not seen any detailed reviews about it myself i don't feel comfortable recommending it. I'll stick with my LG recommendation.

I see, thougt the dell could be interesting because of the better nits but I've never had a Dell monitor before so I don't know if they're great, whereas I know LG monitors are great

Dell generally makes good monitor. I also came across this Dell. Which is supposed to be the same as the LG 27GL850. Here in the Netherlands, this Dell monitor is €40 cheaper.

I have one of these MAG 272cqr, if you don't mind curved.

 

Although not 'officially' G-Sync compatible it works ok with my RTX 2070 Super.

 

Pro's:

27 inch display; 2560 x 1440 resolution; 165MHz refresh; 1 ms (ish) response

Good colour and contrast

 

Con's:

None so far.
