That one has outrageous input lag I think. I saw people posting it had 20-30ms input lag. The Crossover with no scalar has something like 0-4ms input lag, the crossover with scalar has 13ms or so. I would assume that one would be the same as the Crossover with scalar, but apparently people claim it has more.

Do you want to stick with 1080p? If yes, then I'd advise you get the Planar PX2710MW. It's pretty cheap, and the quality is really good for a TN panel. I personally use this monitor, and I'm going to be picking up two more once I get the money. This is a really good monitor, and there are many favorable reviews on the egg.

Do you want a higher resolution? If yes, then the Yamasaki Catleap monitors may be what you want. They're on ebay for around $420. Check the Yamasaki Catleap Monitor Club for more details on them. Even though it's slightly outside your budget, these are probably one of the cheapest 2560x1440 S-IPS LED monitors you can get. I believe they use the same panel as the 27" iMacs, which is a variation of the panel used in the Dell U2711 (someone correct me if I'm wrong).

I have two monitors on my desk at the moment. A 27" Samsung 1080p 2ms panel running at 75hz, and a Crossover 27Q at 2560x1440 60hz.

I tested King's Bounty, Path of Exile, League of Legends, and Borderlands 2 on the Crossover IPS. On the IPS panel, I performed better and had much better image quality in League of Legends (I'm a 1300 elo player), Path of Exile, and King's Bounty, and performed worse in Borderlands. So basically as common sense would tell you, FPS games are better on a fast, TN panel that goes over 60hz, and everything else is better on the Crossover IPS.

A Logitech G400 at 800 DPI and 1000hz felt good on both panels, even though their resolutions are vastly different. I noticed my aim of skillshots in League of Legends was much better with the IPS panel. The higher pixel density combined with the same settings I had used on 1080p makes it so it's easier to fine tune my aim. If you were a pro League of Legends player or something, this monitor would surprisingly be an excellent choice. If you value FPS performance above all, then no, you're going to want a fast TN panel that goes over 60hz.

I would go with this one. Input lag doesn't bother me much though. You will notice a clearer picture. Peace of mind being able to return it. And no lottery.
