27 inch + gaming Monitor

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I'm having a tough time picking out my next monitor. I'd rather go big and I'd rather not spend any more than I have to (there's a surprise I know) so I've decided I can deal with a TN panel and was pretty much sold on an Asus, the Asus VE278Q (http://www.digitalversus.com/lcd-monitor/asus-ve278q-p10118/test.html) good response, excellent connectors, when I saw it in the local MicroCenter it actually looks very nice, especially for a TN and I don't care about the stand since I'll be putting it on my wall anyway (so VESA mounts are a necessity btw). The problem is I started bouncing around trying to decide is 1080p is enough or if I want to go with 1920 x 1200. This will be a gaming monitor, my video card can handle the higher resolution no problem and I will occasionally be watching movies on it but that's a minor consideration or I'd be looking at a smaller IPS screen. I found a Hanns G or Hanspree, whatever they want to call themselves HZ281 (http://www.digitalversus.com/lcd-monitor/hannsg-hz281-p8860/test.html) the problem is the responsiveness isn't as good as the Asus but is the resolution such a big factor that this outweighs the minor response and movie issues?

I'm moving from a Samsung SyncMaster 915n that's made it through three computer builds. This is a great IPS monitor but it's a standard 19 inch so I've never dealt with a widescreen monitor before. Any opinions would be great. If there's a better monitor out there, at this size, for about the same price with VESA mounts, please, let me know. I couldn't care less about speakers, with either of these monitors, they won't be hooked up. Thanks!

I have a i-inc 28 inch which is the same monitor as the hanns. I play bf3 bc2 crysis to name a few. It plays extremely well. No lag ghosting. Its a great gaming monitor and it also is very nice for everyday desktop use. Tiger direct has the i-inc for lke $250 which is a great price....

Thanks Falcon26. I'm looking at it (I-Inc IH283HPB) on TigerDirect now. Specs look good, VESA mount and the connections looks good. BTW love the Robotech badge, used to watch the movies and shows as a teenager. Thanks again for your help!

No problem. Yeah I grew up on robotech in the 80's awesome show. The monitor has been in use for a few years now and has been awesome no complaints.
