You shouldn't bump threads within 24 hours...

Why are you getting monitors so large but only with a 1080p resolution? What made you settle on those two?

For starters, always look up reviews of monitors. Xbit Labs and Anandtech are great resources for monitor reviews.

Second, fill out your system specifications. If you prefer Nvidia cards, the monitor made with Nvidia stuff may be the way to go (you'll have to wait for someone who uses Nvidia products to tell you if that's the direction to go in terms of quality).

One of the monitors you listed in your title is not the same size as the one you listed in your post. In your post, you have both as 27". The 27" size certainly is in my opinion, but if you are sitting far enough away it probably won't matter.

If you want quality get the Samsung SA23A700D. It has the best color quality out of all 120Hz monitors and good responsiveness.

If you want green/pink tinting issues go for the ASUS VG278H.

I owned a ASUS VG278H before and it's known for crap color quality and green/pink tinting issues. No amount of calibration can fix it. Also it has probably the worst responsiveness out of all 120Hz monitors.

Where in the world did you get that info from? Prad would disagree and gives it the highest ratings for gaming:

To be honest, I think you got it mixed up somewhere. Figure out which model it is. You aren't even consistent within your own thread on the model number. You are not showing the correct model somewhere along the line. Also, the single tick mark is for feet. Inches is a double tick mark.
