Does a Sony FW900 count? It might be a CRT but surely the 2304 x 1440 counts, no?

I was looking at the Achieva Shimian QH270's and it appears that some of them have tempered glass panel while others come without. Now, i would totally want a one without the glass to avoid the possibility of potential dust as much as possible, but how can i tell the difference? Also, this monitor is glossy, right?

This particular monitor caught my attention for being relatively cheap and it has very sleek looking casing to it which appeals to me.

I can safely say it dosent effect me. As I've put many straight hours on this monitor. Slept four hours last night just to game. Had to quietly crawl into bed. LOL.

I would imagine the only people who have problems with PWM are the same people that have a problem with 3D. A very small percentage. Unfortunately or them, they have a very small built in Vsync.

I have a recommendation for anyone looking to go 1440p. Do it!! The leap was that good for me. I was at a mates house just an hour ago and he has a Benq 24 inch, and it looked rubbish @1080p after going with 1440p for a couple of weeks now.. He has a good system, easily able to do 1440p, and 1080p, just no..i could never go back. He is coming around tomorrow, on my advice, to have a look at my screen. i wager he will get my screen..the pb278Q will not let you down. I love it,,i really, really, really love it. All this talk above about bleeding etc...you will not notice it once gaming..get one now!!

PWM flickering: I went to a local retail store to see for myself if I could see PWM flickering on the PB278Q before I made a purchase. I nor my other family members did not see any flickering. I feel PWM flickering effects a very small minority of people who experience this and I could understand for those who do see flickering it would be unacceptable. It was a non-issue for me when deciding between these monitors. Either you see it or you never will and the PWM back lighting isn't an issue nor degrades the performance of the monitor.

Quality Assurance: Each monitor has their own issues and quality assurance problems. Albeit some have more qaulity issues than others but If you think about it, which ever monitor you decide on, you will return if there is an issue regardless until it's worthy. So I wouldn't focus on IF one has a worse or better track record. Why box yourself out of possibly a good monitor that might suit you better because it has better quality assurance and still might come to you defective regardless.

MenacingTuba did some testing on three of the above monitors for contrast, gamma, & color among others in this POST.
Very hard decision when all these monitors are all so worthy. Each have some things they do better than others but IMO none excelled at everything. My suggestion is to do Google searches on reviews for all the monitors. Read, read, read, and one will stick out at you. It took me two weeks of almost 24/7 homework to make my choice. I over thought it through with non-existent issues at first.

For me in the end it was between the U2713HM and PB278Q. The U2713HM was more expensive, comes with 2xUSB 3.0 ports, had better color range. The PB278Q dosen't have USB ports but came with every connector the monitor offers and those cords add up to the value of this monitor if you have to buy any of them.

The Viewsonic VP2770 is an excellent monitor from what I read in reviews. It has a slower response time than any of the monitors in specs but I guess it's very modest as it does better than specs listed in real world use. For me the V2770 price was was ultimately too much to justify since I'm not using my monitor for professional graphic design, Auto CAD, etc. where this monitor excels. I was more focused like you on gaming and watching blu-ray moves with main focus on gaming and watching movies secondary with no professional use.

I ended up choosing the ASUS PB278Q. Turns out I have one dark pixel on the entire monitor. As for back light bleed at 30% brightness is near perfect. 100% brightness does show back light bleeding. I set my display to 27% brightness all the time anyway. I posted my results HERE if you'd like to take a look. Still waiting on some OCN feedback on that actually.

IMO the PB278Q excelled in gaming where it counted most to me. Love the 'trace free' ASUS offers which takes care of over shoot and most of the motion blur which is eliminated, yielding a smooth and sharp image. thumb.gif

Thanks for you're informative post. I think I'm in the same boat you were in as both the Dell and the ASUS seem to be the ones I keep looking at. I've read several reviews, including MenacingTuba's, and watched several video's on all of the monitors. As I've mentioned this weekend I could get the U2713HM for less than the PB278Q. But like you mentioned the ASUS has the trace free option that I don't believe the Dell offers. But in all honesty neither screams to me over the other. To me it feels like when I was trying to choose between the 2500K or 3570K for my PC build. Ultimately just choose the newer one. So I'm still just looking at reviews of both still.

By the way your screen looks pretty good in the pictures. Only noticed some glow on the upper right. smile.gif

The Asus is more of a gamble then the Dell the Asus PB278Q have or at least had some quality problem to start with if they are better now i dont know

Problems like backlight beed or like mine with dead pixels

Right. The monitor I have has one stuck bright blue pixel. It goes away after the monitor heats up. Something like that does bug me. Though I've been spoiled up until this point as this is the first time I've had a monitor with that kind of problem. Light Bleed on this monitor was noticable at 100% brightness. But, I currently have it at 60% and it's pretty good considering.

BTW love the new profile picture.
