I chose the BenQ, actually. I like the Pixo alot, especially because the higher frame rate is better for overwatch, but I don't recognize the brand. And IPS takes precedence over frame rate IMO, so not the Acer but the BenQ. The 4k monitor isn't worth it imo at 60fps and on a TN display.

Take a look at the Pixio, I'd like to see how you think of it. :D

TN still looks very good. If it doesnt, just get a monitor that does have a good TN panel with those specs. - TBH its really what you want. I prefer performance over quality any day.

Yes, thats why the TN pannels provide enough quality (imo), then enhances the experience with its raw hardware performance.

I use an IPS panel next to a TN one, and I can assure everyone that IMO, TN is not good enough quality. It's irksome with viewing angles and color accuracy is lacking.

Isn't it great how everyone has different standards and how we can express our opinions?

It's sort of true though, and unless it's a high quality TN panel, you aren't likely to get good colors.

Yeah, which is why I kinda stated that I am biased when it comes to monitors because I rather "suffer" with lower quality (still good) and enjoy raw performance.

With a monitor color accuracy IS performance. Looks aren't just aesthetic, they're everything. Literally.

You can always just use ICC profiles to tune the color. I use an Asus VG248QE with an ICC profile and it does just fine. Yes, the viewing angles aren't as good as IPS panels, but I'm looking straight at it 99.99% of the time and it looks fine.

Hi, what profile are you using?

I just received this monitor today & I'm looking to improve upon the default settings in this manner.

These were the monitors in the poll a few days ago:
  • ASUS PB278Q 27"1440p IPS 60hz $389
  • BenQ GW2765HT 27" 1440p IPS 60hz $329
  • Acer XG270HU 27" 1440p TN 144hz 1ms $379
  • Pixio PX277 27" 1440p IPS 144hz $389
  • AOC U2879VF 28" 4K TN 60hz $299
 
I have eliminated two: The ASUS PB278Q and the AOC U2879VF. Reasons:
 
ASUS PB278Q: Too pricey for what it provides. Good reviews, but quality control is sometimes a problem.
 
AOC U2879VF: Probably should get an 1440p because I would rather take 1440p and higher frames with good color over 4K with lower frames and a little duller color.
 
I will reconsider either of these monitors if 3 or more people request. To help you guys in the decision, I have put together a list of pros and cons.
 
  • BenQ GW2765HT 27" 1440p IPS 60hz $329
    • Pros: IPS, price, tilt stand
    • Cons: 60hz, glossy, a little input lag
  • Acer XG270HU 27" 1440p TN 144hz 1ms $379
    • Pros: 144hz, 1ms, no bezels
    • Cons: TN, some really bad reviews, no tilt, wobbly stand
  • Pixio PX277 27" 1440p IPS 144hz $389
    • Pros: IPS, 144hz
    • Cons: Not a very known brand, thicker bezels, no tilt, wobbly stand
 
If it comes down to two monitors, I may do another post, who knows?

imo you should make the decision of your resolution and framerate and go from there. hard to compare monitors with different tech specs, and I certainly wouldn't go 60hz over 144hz just because of aesthetic reasons.

I just don't know the quality of the monitors, that's mainly why I want people to vote. Not because of the specs.
