A bad monitor shouldn't cause headaches to be honest, unless it has backlight flicker or it's a low refresh rate CRT

But the color production on the hanss G is pretty terrible to be honest.

Not that it matters to everyone, just that it is.

Just to give a much better insight into each of the monitors so you can make a much more informed decision based on facts
I would never even consider U3011 or U2711 for gaming because of the input lag. Simply way to high! You can live with input lag up to maximum 20ms but above it just feels way to laggy. I have tried U3011 and it is really a pain because of the lag.

input lag
U3011 and U2711H - 30ms
ZR2740w - 10 ms

Thanks.. i'll look into that..

The sad news for me is that i do game once a while, and for such resolution monitors doesnt seems to be able to provide good response time "yet".. but oh man, the one i'm currently using now has really bad colors.. it has good response time tho..

As said, those reviews shall help the dude have more insight, instead of half blind comments like these.

For the record, I hate input lag too. But it's only bad for FPS, and even then, not everyone can notice it, while others can't imagine someone not noticing it.

They do fine in ghosting and some models have <10ms of input lag. They really should be just as fine for any fast paced video / game as a random 60hz TN panel. While others have a bit more input lag, and don't do fine.

Hazro also has a good 27" 2560x1440 with low input lag but it isnt sold in the U.S. I think.

I see.. and FPS is like the only type i play lol (too bad for me).. my current monitor has 1ms response time, so maybe when i switch to a 10ms+ monitor, i think i will notice the difference.. but when it comes to overall usage, it's mainly for regular daily use.. web, movies, photochop sometimes, ect.. so lower response time shouldn't be a problem if it's not too high, or else i'll waste those 580s..

Response time is not the same as input lag.

Response time is a marketing term that marketing people use to lure in users who don't know everything about monitors. You're better off ignoring it, it doesn't tell you absolutely anything.

The average TN has roughly 15ms of input lag, some have more, some less.

Response time is supposed to give a description of ghosting on a monitor, but it is GTG, as if it was even measured most of the time. Therefore, one can just ignore it and focus on the ghosting tests in monitor reviews, to get accurate results.

The difference if you instead choose an IPS monitor with low input lag is more ghosting compared to your TN.

If you are mostly into FPS you may consider the Samsungs 120Hz but those are 1920x1080 so you will not gain any resolution. However for FPS gaming I would choose the Samsung 120Hz over any IPS monitor.

120 Hz makes movements more fluid.
