Which 27" 108p monitor (listed)?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Simple question. These three options:

AOC 27" E2795VH WLED Monitor: (£200)
http://www.scan.co.uk/products/27-ao...1-2ms-speakers

27" Philips E-line 273E3LSB: (£213)
http://www.scan.co.uk/products/27-ph...2001-3ms-black

Iiyama Prolite E2773HDS-B1: (£231)
http://www.scan.co.uk/products/27-ii...1-300cd-m2-1ms

Which one and why, and is it worth the price difference?

I've read some great reviews on the AOC honestly, and haven't read any on the others. I'm currently using this monitor:



I want the upgrade for a more immersive gaming experience for BF3 and Skyrim. I'll also be upgrading to either an HD6950/6970 or GTX570/580 in the next week, the monitor in the week after. Finally, I'll be getting a Bulldozer FX8120/8150 once they're out, and if they're worth the upgrade (please no asinine speculation on this point in here).

Is the upgrade worth it? I feel like the larger screen will be awesome, and the 1080p resolution suits my PC better than 1440p or the like.

Cheers

I think that if you are going to upgrade to a larger monitor you should get one with a 2560x1600 resolution. Even if you cant game at native resolution in all games you can still always use a lower res at the same display ratio. Though if you are setting on purchasing one of those, I say go with the AOC. It has a much higher black level, and a quick response.

Yeah, I'm really not spending the money on a 1440p/1600p monitor which are at minimum twice the price. I appreciate the suggestion, but not happening budget wise. It's one of these 3 monitors, or I stick with what I've got, which is serving me well but I'm too aware of the surrounding room/furniture etc.

I went from a 22" LG 1080p monitor to a 27" ASUS VE278Q. I noticed text looked more pixelated than my 22" LG 1080p monitor. I also noticed more anti-aliasing in games. It doesn't bother me too much but others might. But I'm happy with my VE278Q. The ASUS VE278Q is about £50 more than the AOC but not sure if it's any better. It has decent reviews by owners on Amazon, Google, and Newegg. I've heard good things about AOC as well. Here's a link and a review.

AOC replaced later models with TN panels. Here's a article. But I still recommend the AOC over the other models.
Edit: The AOC has a MVA panel instead of a TN. I would get the AOC over the others and the ASUS. MVA has better color reproduction and viewing angles. However, from what I read MVA panels have more input lag then TN or IPS. Not sure how it it is on the AOC.


Personally, I suggest getting a 24" because it'll save you some money. You'll notice less pixelation and anti-aliasing. Or get a higher resolution 27" if you want to spend more.

phillips: 3.5ms , 7 day DOA, no HDMI, 60hz, 19.6w+ 167+
Iiyama: 1ms +, 1 day DOA!?!?, HDMI+, 55-75hz+, 28w 193
AOC: 2ms+, 28 day DOA +, HDMI+, 55-75hz+, 70w, 178

i think the AOC, it has the highest power consumption, but gives you a good grace period for DOA, has HDMI, 75hz refresh rate, and isnt too pricey.

Iiyama, 1 day doa period, total no go for me.

philips, only a week for doa period, higher ms(not really noticable though), and no HDMI(isnt a necessity but its nice to have the option)

Thanks for the responses. My thoughts so far:

1) perhaps the 27" 1080p is a slight waste of money - I want the screen size so I have less in my peripheral vision, more gaming visual stimulus, but no point doing it half-cocked right?

Yet a 24" 1080p simply cannot be worth it from a 22" - those couple of inches are practically irrelevant. I was on a 24" before moving OS and can't remember any difference to now at all. 27" seems like a demonstrable jump ...

2) pixellation doesn't *really* trouble me too much and I'm running AA @ 1080p with my 6850 in most games, and I'm purchasing probably a 6950 and overclocking too (hopefully) 6970 levels tomorrow.

3) AOC looks like the best option of those listed, but the power usage is astronomically higher than the others. That sucks I am as green-conscious as possible in my energy-sapping hobby.
