Samsung S27B970D Or Asus VG278H - Page 2

post #11 of 15
Displays which use glass like the Samsung 970D & Apple Cinema Display are a joke if you don't want a mirror & want blacks to look black, not gray

Glass vs. Matte



Glass vs. Glossy


The Qnix is definitely much better than the Samsung 970D for gaming since it has nearly as good colors, usually overclocks to at leas 96hz & the Samsung has 1 frame of input lag wile the Qnix has almost none

Wow that is highly reflective. Do you have some sort of light source coming from the side? I have a glass sammy 60" 3D in my room (where this computer will be) and I have no issues with reflection when I shut my blinds. As for the monitor it will be facing a wall with my eyes facing the window so no reflection will even hit the monitor. I have always been a fan of glass vs. matt, I think it gives a cleaner picture quality personally. As for the Qnix monitor I am sure it is a good one, but that is something I will not even be willing to consider. I have put in lots of research to come up with the two monitors I will be purchasing.

Not trying to shoot down anything you said as they are very very valid points if they are not thought of. Should have mentioned that info. in my original post. Thank you for the insight MenacingTuba redface.gif

I am not trying to be a pro gamer or anything like that, so that being said I will not be flying across the screen with some insane dpi (no issues with screen tears). If you can answer this question you will provide me with enough insight to make my decision. If you were to pick a monitor for making games look the best, i.e. ultra setting graphics/eye candy, would you go for the 1440p or 1080p? I just want to be sure that the difference that I will get is enough to justify the price difference.
.

1440p at 60hz will be very fluid but not as much as 1080p at 120hz.
120hz is very attractive for FPS games, for example if you are sniping a player that is running across your screen, the moving target will be much more fluid and easier to shoot than 60hz (my opinion anyways). also the ASUS 278H has a fast response time which also helps in FPS type games.

But I find this is not needed for non FPS games as the motion of characters is much slower.
1440p in my opinion has more rich colors and better graphics details.
I often turn down graphic features such as MSAA at 1440p since you won't see the pixel edges as much as in 1080p.

In my case I use this pc mostly for FPS gaming (70%+ of the time) and would take 1080p at 120hz before 1440p at 60hz but if I was not playing FPS gaming as much 1440p at 60hz would be my preferred choice.

Sorry to make this confusing wink.gif

+ rep!

You bring a very good point with the sniping and such in fps. Plus, with the vg278h I have the option for 3d and it's $350 cheaper!

The verdict, I will go ahead and get the Asus VG278H!

marc0053, you have been very helpful, not at all confusing! thumb.gif
