Need 1440p suggestions

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
All I care about is picture quality, I play mostly single player campaigns on cpu. I also need it to support hdmI for my ps3/ps4. I would like to Keep around 800 or less, any suggestions?

I don't think you could go Korean for this because iirc they either don't have internal scalers, or they don't have multiple inputs (or both). As far as picture quality, almost any 27 inch 1440p in the market would work. IIRC most of the differences between them is minimal.

Personally I finally settled on a Viewsonic VP2770LED. Great out of factory calibration and good input delay and whatnot for gaming. Right now Amazon has them for 700 bucks (without taxes though).

Just keep in mind that you're entering a panel lottery when you're going for these 1440p monitors, though. If you're not picky, that's fine.... but the defect rate is high.

I would go with the CrossOver Black Tune 2763AMG. Link for $469, accessorieswhole is a good seller too.

From the pictures on the eBay posting it has compatibility with consoles due to the built-in scaler.

Would not recommend newegg for monitors, ever. You get one with a noticeable defect (highly likely with these) they really screw you over on the returns. Also ASUS uses pwm dimming. Not sure if op cares about that.

Also op if you haven't decided yet I would not recommend the U2713HM. Pretty much guaranteed to have some kind of defect.

Aside from the viewsonic I suggested there is also a recent BenQ (2710 or something, I don't remember) to consider. Not sure how it does with consoles but worth checking out. Have heard it's not too bad.

Viewsonic is overpriced junk, I would have him look for a multiinput korean monitor.

To be completely honest, this is probably how you should determine your 1440p monitor:

If you want cheap and good, definitely get a Korean monitor. My recommendations for this is the Crossover 27Q mainly because I own some. Others are fine too, however, if you don't need the overclockable monitor; stay away from the Qnix or Xstar. I've heard there's a 50% crap shoot with them. Although, I'm also not bashing them, they're still good for the price!

If you want a 'mainstream' brand and good, I recommend Dell or Asus. I personally own 3 Dell U2713HMs and I don't know what stolemyowncar is talking about, I haven't had a SINGLE problem with any of them. They all came great the first time and not even a single one has a dead pixel/stuck pixel. BLB is not even noticeable on any of them. There are some that are not good that come with a problem like crosshatching but that only happens on like 5% of the monitors. The complaints seem like there are a lot because the only people starting threads are people who got a bad monitor. You can ask for yourself on the Dell U2713HM club. smile.gif Asus is also a very good brand and their 1440p monitor looks beautiful too!

If you want good and overclockable, I recommend the Overlord Tempest monitor. They are harder to come by and cost quite a bit, but if 120Hz on a 1440p screen is absolutely necessary, then this is the only valid choice in my opinion. smile.gif

It's not "overpriced" "junk" at all. He stated his budget is under $800, and they are good monitors for the price. Korean monitors are a larger gamble that you don't have to take if you have the money. Which, he does.

I must have had a 5% one right away then, because that's what happened on the first one I got. If you'll just head over to Hardforums for a second, you'll notice that even NCX is recommending everyone stay the heck away from the U2713HM's, and that's the general consensus over there. The newest revision that supposedly fixes crosshatching (and some BLB) in those monitors (which some people have actually said they don't fix them), have a problem with motion instead.

Here's a link to the post from the BenQ thread from the BenQ I'm talking about:
http://hardforum.com/showpost.php?p=1040229587&postcount=47

Now, you're free to see as few defects as possible in your screen. Perhaps you got quite lucky... or perhaps you simply don't notice it. Personally, I just recommend staying away from the U2713HM because all the research I've done through multiple sources (except the happy-go-lucky thread on here) suggests staying away from them. I mean if you check the latest few posts in your own club, you'll notice they're talking about crosshatching. rolleyes.gif That's a lot of 5%'s, there.

A few pointers:

Do you want a gloss screen or a matt screen? Some of the Anti-glare (matte) screens have a heavy AG filter which I hate, more recently sme monitors have a less heavy AG filter. However I prefer the glossy screen as it is not grainy at all and the colours are vibrant, but it has to suit your environment.

You will need Dual Link DVI-D for high resolution from graphics card as well as HDMI for PS3. You need a 1440p monitor HDCP and with scaling. The scalers will make the response time worse. You may want to avoid PWM backlighting.

My Hazro is based around the LG panel used by the Korean resellers, but it has multiple inputs and a scaler and is HDCP compliant. The resolution is fantastic for games and text. The colours are not as vibrant as my old NEC 21" monitor and it suffers with some backlight bleeding bottom left and the usual IPS glow and response could be better, but overall it is a great monitor. My understanding is these LG panels used by the Koreans have been rejected by tier1 companies and so you should not expect perfection. Mine has no dead pixels and the backlight bleeding is more to do with the bezel Hazro use. There a 5mm blemish (I guess somewhere is one of the layers that make up the panel) which luckily is only noticeable on a bright solid colour if I look for it.

If there is such a thing as a perfect monitor then I guess you are looking at one of the tier1 brands not the Korean resellers. I avoid HP & Dell because of the AG coating and would love the Samsung Series 9 S27B970D but it is beyond my means. The VP2770 (semi gloss) and the PB278Q (light AG) seem interesting at the price. Below is the latest version of the monitor I have and currently a great price (if you can get it in you part of the world) and I would get this over an import every day of the week (although Hazro have a poor CS record I would be dealing with companies in my country):
