I'm Stuck at choosing a 120hz Monitor.

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Been doing allot of research on 120hz Monitors,
And it comes down to, I'm still miffed at which ( Brand ) one to choose.
Still tossing around for Surround, 24 or 27" in 120.
I play 99% FPS games. Any suggestions on monitors for Surround? Or even a cheap 120 to try first before putting funds out for 3 120's.

Been eyeing this one:
Acer HN274Hbmiiid

Get one of these, they are FANTASTIC, and the warranty is 3 years and they are absolutely amazing in every aspect.

You may hear people complain, uhh 3ms response time... 3ms when I play Crysis 2 or anything, I cant even notice it AT ALL.

The 3D as well is absolutely stunning. Please get one!

The Acer is great! It has some of the best quality control of any of the 120 Hz monitors. Mine has no backlight bleeding and backlight uniformity is very good. Black levels are very good for an lcd and white is indeed very white. I haven't noticed any noticeable input lag. The matte coating is great to have. No reflections and no sparkly effect that some aggressive AG coatings give. It also supports HDMI 1.4 (for 3D with hdmi devices like the PS3) and can be VESA mounted.

Here are my only complaints
-colors are not great out of the box; significantly improved with calibration (although you still won't mistake it for an IPS monitor)
-doesn't have many features like a USB hub, and I think the stand only offers tilt (I don't use the stand though)
-controls could be better; changing the brightness takes something like 5 steps
-reflective bezel (minor complaint)

Edit: I've posted a separate thread with a more thorough review of the the Acer HN274h

Bumped this thread because I'm asking about same monitor and found this when I did a search.

I'm researching and choosing between to monitors right now. Either the Acer HN274Hbmiiid Black 27" or Samsung 27" SA950.

The Samsung SA950 has Dual-DVI and I can use my Nvidia GPU I currently own. However I'm not convinced between true Nvidia 3D Vision or the Samsung Tri-Def option to watch 3D blu-ray movies.

I'm also a little tossed between glossy finish of the Samsung or the matte finish of the Acer HN274. Both have very similar specs like an amazing contrast ratio of 10,000,000:1, brigtness 300 cd/m2, WLED Backlight, and Response Time 2ms.

The Samsung SA950 looks better and has got great reviews. The Acer HN274 is newer and sparse reviews that don't really tell much to make a decision.

Any comments on either greatly appreciated. smile.gif

Found some info.

Have no clue what's being said on this European video. Looks like a good monitor though.

Personally I only go for samsung and benq monitors since they make them the best IMO and I've never had a problem with them (just my opinion). The 27in samsung is nice but it costs an arm and a leg, you could get a 47in TV for that price (that's the reason I didn't get that one). I went in on friday and bought the Benq XL2420T and it's amazing. the colors are great, it has picture by picture, 3D (built in emitter), and little things like pivot, a headphone rest on the back, touch sensitive buttons and it looks nice. Plus I got lucky and got 0 dead pixels. It just came out last month and has lightboost technology for 3D. The samsung one isn't supported by nvidia 3d vision as well, it comes with it's own glasses so nvidia doesn't support it for some reason.

The 2D gameplay on that samsung monitor looks nice though so it's your call
