VP2770 least input lag most expensive. I'll let someone who owns it give Cons and Pros on this. I read PRO - it's the fastest input lag. CON - red tint during Blu-ray playback. Don't quote me on either. Not many reviews on this monitor so hoping owners give more detail.

U2713HM Sit too close possible cross hatching because of a bit grainier AG coating than PB278Q. No PWM back lightning. Individually Factory pre-calibrated. Very accurate colors. Great contrast though a tinge of green in Blu-ray playback. Very well laid out OSD. Two 2.0 USB ports two 3.0 USB ports. Stand swivels around monitor movement for landscape and portrait. I find gaming with a bit of ghosting like the PB278Q. DELL has a default panel overdrive with no option on OSD to tweak but it's done a well job with it's HM version.

PB278Q Possible PWM flicker or issues if it bothers you, if not this is a moot point. Deep blacks and decent colors. It's 0.01ms faster input lag than U2713HM. No extra inputs. Offers all the cables for the ports where the U2713HM lacks the HDMI cable. I found gaming very comparable to the U2713HM as input lag goes.

One thing I noticed when reading review is pricing is all different right now. Base price on these models have come down from what reviewers were basing their scores on to other monitors. The final decision is up to you and what you value most. Do find out about the pros and cons on the VP2770.

Last choice you have is if you'd like to go Korean panels and I will also leave that to someone with one who can also list PROs and COn's to help you. All good choices IMO. All will have the chance of back light bleed or IPS glow. Go figure how one person hits it off first time and others takes a few exchanges.Please make sure you also get the pros and cons to these monitors as well. Nothing is perfect and beware those who say so.

Thank you for the review

Hi all,

Very new here - As you can see. Mainly created my account (finally) to ask the question echod by nearly everyone here:

What is the BEST monitor for gaming? 2560x1440 With the lowest input lag possible - 60hz (or above preferably) Refresh rate AND is easily buyable in the UK?
See, i'm looking for theperfect monitor, which doesn't exist of course but It is crucial that upon purchase I am almost guaranteed a flawless display with no dead or stuck pixels (So I am VERY conscious about buying a Korean brand, although Crossovers are just what I want - No guarantees in the UK though!)

Can anyone help my dilemma at all please?

nope. Buyers dilemma is something that you have to deal with. I bought my PB278Q without seeing it live. I did so by doing my research, knowing what I was reading about, knowing what i wanted and NOT asking other people what I should buy. Do some legwork, and you will be as happy as I am.

This is insinuating that I havn't bashed my skull for the past week reading reviews, comparisons and opinions to try and decide the best one for me.
As Soon as I decide on a monitor, i read a slither of information that leads me to another monitor, then another and so on. Originally I wanted the Asus, but then got turned down by the vast amount praising the U2713HM So highly - After which I heard of the Hazro's, Crossovers and Catleaps of which have better input lag/response times. Then today I hear of Qnix.

I would go out and buy 3 Dell U2713HM's tomorrow if it wasn't for the Response time on it. I am used to a '2ms' (More like 7 In all I believe from what I was reading - As opposed to the 22.5ms for the Dells) Response time on my Benq XL2420T (And of course the 120Hertz Refresh rate but I can deal with that) and feel I would definitely notice a change.
Please do not jump to assumptions that I posted here unequipped and poorly educated just because of my lack of posts.

The response times on the U2713HM and PB278Q that your reading from PRAD is much greater than the way input lag in measured from other review sites. PRAD is the most accurate seems to be the consensus.

So if your comparing the Qnix, Crossovers and Catleaps it's most likely a different testing method than PRAD. I noticed sites like TFT Central have much less lag input measured on the same monitors due to the testing done. So I'd want to know what testing method the input lag was measured by before taking it face value. Then if you can find the same site review the monitors you can make a better and fair assessment on true latency compared to each other using same testing method.

I am rather impressed at your assumption I used PRAD as a comparison - Which you are wholly correct in may I add.

You do make a very good point though, and added an extra layer of confusion and difficulty in choosing - But surely due to the lack of Built in scaling by default response times are much faster?
Or at least that is what i've gotten the impression of during my research.
