I will only say this, I have 23.6, 24 and 25 inch Asus monitors in my house.
I have been using asus for years and so far do not have ANY reason to even consider any other monitor.
My next one will soon be the Asus 27.

You've been given in three different threads of info, opinions and experience with different monitors. You are on the right track with the three choices you have up there. I recently made the same purchase just last week and took me two weeks to decide prior. I read about 5 reviews online for each monitor - two or three times.....honestly.

In the end you have to ask yourself what do you need out of the monitor and if it provides that. Your three choices are all solid monitors and believe me - none of them excel at everything as there is no PERFECT monitor. Some do colors better some do gaming and the difference can be so subtle you can't even tell. These three do gaming at the top of their class for 1440p and you've seen the info, and like me, was indecisive because you feel your about to make the wrong purchase.

Let me put your mind at ease......anyone here will tell you those three monitors are at the top of their class gaming and if you chose anyone of them....it'd be a great monitor. Pick one, check it out, don't look back, enjoy the gaming. smile.gif

Pretty much agrre with everything you said. I too was in the exact same situation a few weeks back, and ended up buying the U2713HM. After losing many hours going over the reviews for those three monitors I ended up buying the one that, for me, would look better on top of my desk. A completely subjective criterium, but it allowed me to make a decision. Looks are important, even when the monitor is not on smile.gif

Here is some more info gathered while doing homework on the subject. Gaming at 1440p latency is most important. Pricing importance varies from person to person.

27" 1440p Monitors - Latency

U2713HM = 22.6 $799.99
PB278Q = 22.5 $759.99
S27A850D = 19.3 $899.99
VP2770 = 12.4 $849.99

Manufacturers suggested retail prices quoted above. Depending on sales etc everyone should make their own decision if it's in your budget.

Between U2713HM and PB278Q - they are very on par with each other gaming. Choose what's on sale or even your vendor preference as it won't matter.

S27A850D is $799.99 and for that value whether 3.2ms over the PB278Q or 3.3ms over the U2713HM is worth the $150 difference is up to you.

The VP2770 definitively wins over latency at the cost of $759.99 when on sale and over 9.9 ms latency over the slowest U2713HM.

I'm leaning towards the VP2770 now - its $747 on Amazon and I have Prime so either free 2-day shipping or next-day for $3.99

Now I wait for my tax return mad.gif
