Help with 1440p monitor

Hi all,

 

So I've been looking for a new monitor for a while now with little success. So I want to upgrade from a 1080p, 60Hz IPS monitor (Dell U2414H) to 1440p and preferably also a higher refresh rate.

I have found the Samsung C27JG50 and the Acer VG270U, but I can't find any proper reviews about them.

My budget is around 350 in The Netherlands, although I would theoretically be able to go up a bit if it's really worth it (or just wait until Christmas deals and such).

I mainly use the monitor for watching Netflix and Youtube, browsing the internet and gaming (Witcher type games, CS:GO a bit, Rocket League).

Do you guys have any monitors you would suggest with a 1440p panel?

Does anyone have any experience with the monitors I mentioned?

 

Thank you :)

I have both the Asus PB278Q and PG 278Q (60Hz and 144Hz respectively), and I love them both. Adjustable stand, quality panels, etc etc. The extra refresh rate will cost you some more. You can look at your local used listings to see if there are any deals there, I bought both my monitors used and have had no problems with either. I also don't know popular online retailers for the netherlands, how your import taxes are so...

R.I.P. Asus X99-A motherboard, April 2016 - October 2018, may you rest in peace. 5820K, if I ever buy you a new board, it'll be a good one.

I can't find the PG278Q here, only the PG279Q which costs about 750 and the PG278QR which is 165Hz and 580. I'll see if I can find one used somewhere. Thanks for the suggestion :).
