Please help. I really don't know which monitor to buy

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Greetings. I've been searching these forums and a few others for the past month and i still can't find THE product i'm looking for. Help is GREATLY appreciated at this point. redface.gif

I'll keep this short:

- I'm looking for a 1080p or 1440p monitor, which will be used for %60 video editing and %40 gaming. I don't expect CRT performance but i do play Quake Live and COD and i'd love to have decent gaming experience on it.
- It must be PWM-free. (I had tried Asus PB278Q in a dark environment and i can feel the pulsing which is very annoying to me.)
- 23"+ screen size.
- 8 bit support. It must truly show the banding limits of my camera (which is also 8bit) so i can correctly grade the image.
- DP or HDMI in, so i can connect my video camera.
- I'd prefer a non-Glossy screen.
- If it's 1440p, good 1080p scaling support.
- A decent stand.

Viewsonic VP2770 was the model i was going to buy, but i can't find it in where i live mad.gif. Ordering online makes it an 1200$+ item with shipping+import taxes, which is beyond my limit.

Dell U2713HM is my last resort.

For a reference, THESE are the models i have access to in where i live (ordered in from expensive to cheap)

I may order a Korean brand, but i don't know which one to. I read their specific forum topics. Some say X model is good but when i check it out, it either doesn't have any inputs... or it's glossy... or it's stand is trash... or i don't understand if it's pwm-free or not.

I have a Viewsonic VX922 in here and i can feel even the CCFL pulsing at %50 brightness (that's why i was using it at %100 whole time). PWM-free is a MUST.

I'm hopeless frown.gif
