About to pull the trigger!

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
Ok guys after all of your useful advice and research I'm about to pull the trigger on this monitor:http://www.ebay.com/itm/Sale-QH270-IPSBS-27-Monitor-5W-Speaker-advanced-model-than-QH270-Lite-/320882265870?ssPageName=ADME:L:OC:CA:3160

Unless someone has a better deal, seller, or monitor for the money....just trying to put out one final request so I dont order this and realize the next day I could have picked a better one!

Thanks guys!

What's advanced about it? Speakers? I'm looking at these too, same as the catleap right?

Price is tempting

haha i know its overwhelming...well from all my research id say go for the qh270-lite if you can get it cheaper (speakers arent really worth it) and get it from either ta planet or green-sum. I only did the speakers because the price difference wasnt that big of a deal and sometimes its nice to have em if i dont feel like throwing on my headset

In my personal opinion, I wouldn't buy a monitor just because it has speakers with it. You can buy a set of cheap speakers anywhere and I doubt the ones built into the monitor are that great.

For gaming the MS time is pretty bad, my monitor has an MS of 2. IMO Samsung are really good for televisions or monitors, check something from them perhaps?


EDIT: This imo would be better.

well the monitor your recommending is 1080p and a TN panel vs a 1440p IPS...6ms is fine and to be expected with an IPS....the pq and resolution are worth it IMO

the speakers really have nothing to do with it...
