Sub-$350 ~ 27" IPS LED Displays ~ ASUS ~ DELL ~ VIEWSONIC

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I'll make short, simple, concise sentences.

I need 27" LED IPS screens, sub-$400 shipped, 120hz is a +

I found many on ebay, $290 to 390 range, shady warranty.

I found 3 different models sold and shipped by Amazon.com, Good Warranty? $310 to $350 range

NOTE: Difference between ebay/korean and these monitors are 1920x1080 resolution

1. ASUS VG27AH 27-Inch Screen LED-Lit Monitor
~ $350
~ 5ms response time
~ comes with 3D glasses
~ 80M:1 Contrast Ratio
~ Brightness(Max) : 250 cd/㎡
~ Vesa Mount
~ Product Page

2. Dell S2740L 927M9-IPS-LED 27-Inch Screen LED-lit Monitor
~ $310
~ 7ms response time
~ Glass finish
~ 8M:1 Contrast ratio
~ Brightness: 270 cd/m2
~ USB connectivity
~ VESA Mount
~ Product Page

3. ViewSonic VX2770SMH-LED 27-Inch Screen LED-lit Monitor ~ $320
~ Brightness 250 cd/m2
~ Anti-glare, hard-coating
~ 7ms response time
~ 30M:1 Contrast ratio
~ Product Page

Google did not provide much details for the quality / grade of the IPS panels used in them.
Based on information i have, i'm leaning towards the ASUS

Need expert advise.
Need technical specification

After reading lots of threads from different sites, i found a little bit more info.

Asus ~ has issues with light bleeds, otherwise a good screen

Dell ~ Great quality, Edge to Edge glass might be reflective. No Speakers

Viewsonic ~ Good Warranty compared to the rest.

they all seem to use AH-IPS screen panels which can be Overclocked to about 75hz.... so it's not exactly the same as the korean 27" S-IPS screens.

What resolution would you want? 1080X1920 is fine.

OP, just to make sure you know that since you are getting a 27inch monitor the dot pitch will be bigger and won't look as good as a monitor with the same specs, but only 24 inches etc.
Ahh!

Someone on [H]ard Forum has tested most of them and the Viewsonic turned out to be the best. If you want you can remove the Viewsonics matte coating since it just uses a sticker and reveal a glossy display.

My friend has one too and he also owns a colorimeter and got excellent results from his. The Dell has too much ghosting and it does not overclock.

The resolution is fine... but not at that size.

If you're going 1080p, you should go for 23-24" because it's going to look terrible at 27".

1080p looks fine on a 27", anyone who says other wise has never used a 27" 1080p display and is just parroting others or likes to sit a foot away.

i have a 23" 1080p monitor as noted in my setup, feel like i want to get a bigger screen to watch movies/animes more comfortably from my bed smile.gif

although i do play some fps games, overclocking might be an option

so you're saying the Dell will have a lot of ghosting even though it's 7ms response time just like the viewsonic?

hmm...

It doesn't, I have one that I'm looking at now.

With your logic your saying that a 60 inch tv looks terrible at 1080..

It doesn't look terrible, can i notice the difference from a 23inch, yes.

Manufacturer response times don't mean anything. You can see the Dell ghosting in my video review:
