Which monitor should i choose?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hi guys,
I am looking for an upgrade of my monitor(samsung p22hd)
I looked in the net and liked a few models:
Dell u2412m
Dell s2740l
Asus VE278Q
The s2740 is a bit more expensive here(in bulgaria)but is still and option if its worth it.
My budget is arround the price of these monitors.I think it will be really nice to play on a bigger monitor( 27 inch) thats why i am not sure if the dell is the best option. Idont really play super hardcore so the response times on these monitors are fine.

Tbh, I wouldn't choose another asus monitor. I have 2 samsung monitors and an asus monitor it ghosts, lags among other problems. If your in the market for a good monitor nothing compares with samsung they have the best display to offer.

Could you please recommend me some samsung ones arround that price range. I dont think the glossy screen is a problem because i am using it in the dark a lot of the time.Actually the choice is down to the s2740l and the u1412 I can see the 24 inch is rated higher in most reviews but i would really like a bigger monitor, however i am not sure if the glossy screen and the extra price is worth it.

Its not about those features its what resolution you want, you needs or what your using it for. What are you hardware specs so we can work out how to help you get something that will last you though future upgrades. I cant really answer on to help find ones around your price range due to I don't know where your location is. What connections do you use on your display adapter also so we can suit it to your new display, maybe other ocn members can also help you pick the best monitor for your price range.

Ok, so you have a fairly decent setup. I would look into an 1920x1080 or an 2560x1440p monitor, since you are looking to get an 27 inch monitor you could also look at different brands like benQ, acer, LG etc. Since the samsung monitors, I looked at on there website at there 27" were either d-sub and hdmi connections with no native dvi but they will come with an hdmi to dvi cable so it would be the same as using an adapter if you choose to go this way. I would look at getting an 2ms monitor as it eliminates ghosting and tracers and also look into this when choosing an monitor.

I did some research and came up with these two:
LG 27" IPS277L-BN and Asus VE278Q
the lg is ips but has a smaller response time but i dont think i will notice it while the asus is TN and is faster some people say the both have a small bit of bleeding.

I would not choose the asus unless you have reviewed it very well to make sure it doesn't have the problems like the rest of there production line ghosting etc. I know that the ips monitors are better but not sure why, never really looked into it try looking at other brands then just asus and lg maybe benQ or acer or something that you like and Ill tell you what I think about it from reviewing it. I know samsung make on of the best monitor if you are willing to spend just abit more for quality
