I have the 27" that you linked. It's a phenomenal monitor.

"Only a TN panel" is ridiculous BTW, unless you're doing something that requires unmatched color accuracy, or you have a very discerning eye, you won't notice, or mind that it's TN. It also falls well under budget, so you can waste money on some other crap to make your wife happy.

Are you certain this is the best 27" Benq on the market today for games?
I thank you for your helping post btw !


Im not sure if its the best BenQ, but the main reason I bought it was for PC gaming and I am 100% satisfied. Its not a TV screen, it is a monitor but can also be used as a TV if needed.

I dont think there is any difference between monitors that come with speakers. I have always had mine on Mute and have every sound input go into my amp.

only thing I might be concerned about is image quality.
I've seen TN monitors that were quite dark. I just want to be sure that if I look on a 27" screen while playing, that I will be able to enjoy the sunset in game and not having to be annoyed that the screen isn't able to make it look realistic.
I just wonder sometimes if the monitors of today support the possibilities of the GPU.. would be a waste paying much for a card and yet only using it 30%.

So I'll just ask you this. Picture me playing Dragonage 2 or The elder scrolls V (not yet released though). Would I get very good detail? Or would I require IPS for it?
(btw I think you guys are very nice, no one felt insulted by my words so far so I guess you guys are cool ^^)

Its bright and beautiful is all I can really say. I was blown away by the quality of the picture, how rich the colors are and how bright it is. I have the brightness on %40 and it lights up my room!

EDIT: Here is a massive thread from hardforum with lots of pix scattered throughout. I linked you page 11 because it has the best pics I found in the pages

I'm actualy still banned on that forum (till tomorrow). Some guys were in a quarrel with me and the admin warned everyone to quit it, I agreed with him and that got me banned (apperantly I wasn't allowed to say anything on that eventhough he didn't say so).
So no, I'm never comming back to that forum wich treats it's members like garbage. I personally don't see why someone would have to be banned for having been insulted and yet I was the only one trying to put a stop to it wich obviously diserved me a ban somehow... (the more friends side with you, the bigger the chances of winning I guess).

Anyhow nuff bout that. I think I'm going to like it more here since no one seems eager to ban me just for dissagreeing with someone else wich proves to me that you actualy respect your members here. (forgive my bad spelling)
But do not take my word or anyone's word for it, just look for my posts on the forum, look at the posts of others in those topics and you'll soon figure out what happened (for real).

I thank you so far for your advice guys and girls, if no one has anything more to add, I think I'm going to go with ASUS VE278Q.

sorry for the double post but I had accidently closed down my topic when there was still one question left to be asked. I knew a new post would make the topic show again and I'd rather make a double post then a double topic.
I hope you understand (won't happen again !)

Ahum here's the question:

I know Asus VE278Q LED is about 85Hz and has great ratings (TN)
But that new LG E2770V-BF can reach 120Hz (interpolar) and is LED (TN) too from the looks of it but I am unaware of it's performance.

So the question is, wich outperforms the other? Asus or LG? (need to descide between these 2)

The response time on that LG monitor is 14ms where as the asus is 2ms. Also the asus has an over scan feature that can bring it up to around 85hz. Anything above 60 is unnoticeable IMHO any ways

Also the asus has double the contrast ratio which means the blacks are deeper and colors are brighter!

I think we have the clear winner

i've been extremely happy with my ASUS VE276Q, and was happy with the VE278Q for the two weeks that i owned it (returned due to a stuck pixel). they are both fantastic monitors. i recommend purchasing from somewhere that you can easily return, if needed. monitors are complex pieces of equipment and a lot can go wrong in the manufacturing process. i personally would never purchase a monitor from somewhere that i could not easily return it. to me, it's equivalent to purchasing a new car without ever starting the engine.

ordered 2 of them. Thanks a gain for your support guys and girls.
I can't believe it only took 3 pages to persuade me ^^
(took over 5 topics and over 30 pages on hardforum but I still wasn't persuaded, more argueing then explaining).
