Upgrade time, best 27" 1440p monitor under $750? - Page 3

post #21 of 69
Amazon Canada has the VP2770 for 800$, it's out of stock at the moment but they have a hassle free return+exchange policy while PC Canada charges a re-stocking fee and will likely put up a fight if you want to exchange a non-defective item.

I'm actually coming from a Crossover korean monitor, so I know about the added performance hit. I have a 7970 (and a second one eventually) to power it. It seems like the Viewsonic is going to be the best choice for me.

I'm only skeptical about the Viewsonic one because when I worked at Staples for a few years, Viewsonic monitors were sort of the bargain brand that people would only go towards if they wanted a marginally cheap monitor. Seven out of ten times, I would see the monitor returned within 1-2 weeks.

Do you use displayport on it? That's my main concern, as I've heard a lot of people have had problems with it.

This has been my debate for the last 3-4 months now. I'm still not 100% I want to spend the money on a single monitor yet but I'm almost thinking of buying the Asus, Dell, and Viewsonic all at the same time and seeing which one I prefer while they are side by side.

I will probably never color calibrate it, just don't care at all so really the only things that I am looking for is; not being a shiny screen, not having lag that I can notice, black's are not glowing, and NO light bleeding.
