Hello all,

I currently have a Dell U2212HM IPS Panel the monitor is fine but its a bit on the small side I originally got it for the PPI being so high but having used and seen some 1080P 27inch monitors I would rather a larger screen. Also the 3M coating is very full on with this monitor

Usage is gaming and general tasks & Movies PC is in my signature

So getting opinions on this I have boiled down my list to the following 2 monitors due to the following reasons.

1080 is a big enough resolution due to hardware needed to run 1440p
27inch is my Min size.
IPS only having used my U2212HM I just cant go back to TN panels.
Under $400 In Aus Price Cap (This limits choices alot)


So here are my Pro and Cons for the 2 monitors.

Dell U2740L
Price: I can get this with a discount for $360 Aus deliverd

Pros:
Edge to Edge Glass does not impede image.
Very low input lag
Dell warranty 3 Year
Very similar panel quality to my current monitor

Cons:
Dark Overdrive/Ghosting but hard to tell how much worse it will be then my current IPS Dell unless I get it
Highly reflective screen but this should not be a huge issue due to my room setup as I only have 1 light and the window next to the monitor.

AOC i2757Fh
Price: I can pick this up for $355 Aus

Pros:
On Medium setting very low overshoot and ghosting.
Very low input lag
warranty 3 Year

Cons:
Heavy coating on the front is it similar to the 3M on my current Dell.
2 HDMI No DVI not a huge issue but
AOC are they reliable never used them before and what are warranty claims like.
Settings not quite as good out of the Box as the Dell also PWM Backlit but unknown if current monitor has that doubt it a issue.

So the things that stop me going for the Dell are noticeable overshoot & Screen reflectiveness.
for the AOC is having never used the brand before and the Coating.

Very undecided on this open to all opinions and any other monitors I have also not though of.

Thanks for your time.
