Looking for recommendations on a new monitor

JanDev
 Share

Hello there,

 

so this is my first post here :) . I'm currently using two screens, one being Acer XF270HBMJDPRZ (144 Hz, 27-inch) and the other being BenQ XL2411Z (144 Hz, 24-inch).

After seeing an actual good looking monitor over at a colleagues house I badly want a new one.

Problem is: There are so many options and recommendations and even price spans over multiple hundred dollars for the same specifications, so maybe one of you fellows is able to help me.

 

So I'm searching for a new monitor with the following specifications:

144hz

27 inch

1440p (got a 2070 super so not really ready for 4k gaming at high details)

good color accuracy (IPS?)

HDR certified 400 or higher

price doesn't matter, but I don't want to pay 2k when there is a good one for like 500.

country is germany, so needs to ship there.

 

I will be thankful for any recommendations or sites to look at!

 

Greetings,

Jan

I’ve been looking at several different ASUS monitors including this one and have noticed a lot of bad reviews about backlight bleed as well as other complaints. Also this monitor has a 4ms response time so if you’re gaming FPS shooters wouldn’t you want 1ms or around that? I’m not disagreeing with you because I want an Asus monitor but the reviews I’ve seen have me hesitant to pull the trigger.

@Ship1617 You don't really need that response time, see 

 

I'm open for any brand. The ASUS one comes into my "maybe" selection. I'd be grateful for any more recommendations. :)

Hey Jan, yes the Asus monitors have problems with the backlight bleed, I currently have Both the Asus PA279Q and the Asus ROG Swift PG278Q. Yes they are a bit older but nothing much has changed for the newer models when it comes to bleed.

@Gaires Yea, thought so. It's like, decide, gaming or multimedia / graphic use. But I just want both.

If you want to go for a treacherous journey, here are few links you can use to find HDR monitors.

 

https://displayhdr.org/certified-products/

It's not fun to check each monitor by itself and then trying to find good reviews for them.

@Gaires Thank you. Although I need to admit that I could also live without HDR. I only mentioned that because it adds to the quality aspect I mentioned. 27inch, 144hz, 1440p, good color accuracy (thus IPS) are the key features.

The Gigabyte I linked isn't a bad monitor, but here's two more.

https://www.rtings.com/monitor/reviews/asus/tuf-vg27aq

https://www.rtings.com/monitor/reviews/lg/27gl850-b

 

All three are rather similiar, but these 2 seem to be a lot cheaper.

So it's up to you if you want the slightly better "HDR" and some extra features with the Gigabyte, or save roughly 150€.

 

The Samsung can be good too, but keep in mind that VA's do have some ghosting in dark scenes. So they might not be the best if you play a lot of fast paced games with dark scenes, or if you're really sensitive to ghosting.

Try to watch other monitor negative reviews, people do not understand that you can get broken factory monitor. Also diference betwen 1-4 ms is something your eye will newer see.

The monitor is decent. Although I'm not a fan of the black levels of it, but that was to be expected.

Take a gander at the following links.

In all honesty its very hard to recommend anything that densest have a fully tested review, as any recommendation without one is based purely on either subjective 1st hand use opinion, or purely on the advertised specs which are relatively meaningless.

 

The only way to get better black levels over the one u got is to go VA.
