Asus PB278Q
Dell U2713HM
HP ZR2740w
Samsung S27B970D


Where money is not a issue. smile.gif I can't decide between the above 4 monitors I will only have my PC connected so no Blu ray player or Gaming console. Will be playing some games on it FPS, car racing, football games. Also don't mind if it's a glossy or matte screen either one will do.

This is the link for the 1440p+ Gaming Club

 

We have users using all of those monitors in the club besides the HP ZR2740W.

 

Out of those you mentioned the Dell is the most popular one.

I'm also in the same market although I have a bit more of an emphasis on color accuracy. I'm leaning towards the ASUS PB278Q though because of my bad experience with AG coating on the Dell U2410.

I would go with the samsung. This is because they have the PLS panels that from the consumer and professional reviews I've seen makes a noticeable difference between it and the IPS panels.

Either the Samsung S27B970D or one of the Korean S-IPS monitors.

The other ones are either poor quality (Asus PB278Q) or not worth the money (Dell U2713HM)

This image is a comparison between one of the Korean monitors (CrossOver 27Q LED) and one of the Dell UltraSharp monitors (Dell U2711).

The Korean monitors produce the best image with better brightness and black levels. The Dell U2711's aggressive AG coating certainly puts it in a disadvantage in terms of image quality.

Blurriness and grainy effect is evident in the Dell U2711 and many other IPS panels.

What makes the Asus PB278Q a poor quality display?

The U2713HM or the Samsung S27B970.

Performance for the Dell U2713HM is very good, with the performance out of the box being extraordinary. Calibrated color performance is very good, and the contrast numbers are as good as any 27” display we've tested, even with the more difficult method now being used. The only negative for the display is the slower response time for gaming, though as I mentioned before this might be improved by running at the native resolution (but we can't directly test this)..

I have it and it is fantastic.

Since when was the U2713HM not worth the money? It has fantastic performance (out of the box and calibrated performance) It also comes with a zero dead pixel guarantee and great customer support. It also has a much lighter AG coating compared to the U2711. It's a much better option compared to the Korean monitors you mentioned.

The Korean S-IPS monitors deliver the same if not better image quality than the Dell U2713HM. AG coating is still an AG coating which means decreased image quality no matter how much you love Dell.

There is also a zero dead pixel guarantee for the Korean S-IPS monitors and even then, the Korean S-IPS monitors are much more affordable than the Dell U2713HM.

All things considered, Dell U2713HM is just not worth the extra money.
