Monitor between 500-1200€

I got an LG 27GL850-B monitor this year , it had a dead pixel on the top left which really isnt visible at all so it didn't bother me. This week for some reason another dead pixel popped up out of nowhere. It's right in the middle and very visible especially on darker screens. There is no backlight bleed or IPS glow which is amazing compared to the PG279Q I had that was absolutely horrible in terms of backlight bleed.

 

I got lucky enough to get this monitor for free as well so I really shouldn't be complaining at all about 2 dead pixels but I'm worried more may pop up and it also kind of sets off my ocd. Otherwise I love this monitor but I'm looking for something better I guess and I could use this one as a second monitor, I've been looking into Ultrawide monitors as well so i'll gladly take opinions and such on that.

No idea if this will work for you, but I fixed half a dozen dead pixels on my Elitebook a year ago by rubbing them with my fingernail.

The GL850 is a solid monitor, low contrast but otherwise pritty good.

It's absolutely great, I really like the monitor itself. I remember you recommending a few others a few months back especially with the new OLED lg monitor coming out but that one is just way too big for me. I've considered getting a second GL850 but i'm scared of it having other issues or such.

I would say these 2 are the main rivals of the GL850, similiar price point and only minor differences between the three.

I'll add the 850 so that it's easier to compare them.

And here's a link for a table tool, if you want to look for even more options. You can add even more filters from the "add columns" button.

I definitely was looking at the VG27AQ before I got the 27GL850, I definitely like the look of it a lot more honestly in terms of design if I have one complaint about the LG I really don't like the stand for it and the overall material doesn't feel as premium as the Asus stuff.
