If price isn't an issue then get the Viewsonic because it really is the best 1440p monitor you can buy. If you want the best value for money then look at the Dell U2713HM, it's better than the Asus apart from it has more quality control issues. If you can get a good one then it's amazing, my first one had some issues but the second one I have now is absolutely perfect, no backlight bleed, dead pixels or anything. Look at the Korean monitors too, especially the Crossover 27Q.

I'm trying to avoid RMA/returns. This will be primarily for gaming - movies and general use is fine on my current 24'' / 32'' display setup.

The Viewsonic seems to have a higher response time, which may cause more motion blur than the 5ms Asus, no?

It has less input lag than the Asus and less ghosting, the response time is technically the same.

Quality control is subjective to luck. I've watched people with VP2770 return monitors for back light bleed and bright dot. U2713 with back light bleed and or cross hatching as well. The ASUS isn't more prone to QA issues anymore than the others. From what I'm seeing has changed since its first release 5 months ago. Many ASUS owners are getting good monitors first try. Doesn't matter which monitor you choose you are not guaranteed any better luck. I've been reading, many different threads.

As for your Korean monitors I personally feel better with a company with good customer service and easy replacement. Less expensive for a reason including less QA IMO but it's up to the OP.

Having said that the ASUS PB278Q and U2713HM are going to be the best two gaming monitors so close on performance and very comparable. U2713HM with better colors and the PB278Q giving up some color pop for less lag.

Less input lag sounds great, but I'm not sure if I'd notice. I played through Bioshock Infinite on my Samsung UN32EH5300 HDTV and didn't notice anything (and I'm sure it's not the best for gaming, and I may have used the LED motion-smoothing feature that I usually have on for watching sports).

If you want the best get the VP2770, if you want the best value then get the U2713HM. Just my 2cents.gif
If you want to avoid having to return your monitor then the Asus or Dell probably aren't for you as both have fairly poor quality control.

No it's not, it's exactly the same as the PB278Q with overdrive enabled.
