Any recommendations for a good Korean monitor?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi,

I've been looking at switching from using my living room TV to a dedicated monitor recently and I've found the Korean monitors mentioned online today.

I was looking at buying a 24" brand name model from Amazon UK but it looks like the 1440p Korean 27" screens can be bought for not much more. My video card is a Sapphire 7870 and I would be using it mostly for gaming. My budget is around £200/$300 and I'm particularly intrigued by the models that can be overclocked to 120Hz as I'd like to future proof the screen as much as possible.

Can anybody make any recommendations or should I just stick with the local retailers and brands?

I personally like the solid construction of the Crossover 27q. Alot of the others look to plastic for my taste. Also that 7870 might struggle in some games at 1440p.

Thanks for the really quick reply. Those are a little more expensive than I wanted to pay but so much more that it would be a huge problem.

My 7870 is the Sapphire GHz edition so it's essentially a 7950 when you overclock it in CCC and I believe some other tools can take it even further (although I've never tried). It runs Battlefield 4 comfortably on Ultra at 1080p so if I had to knock it down to Max to get it running in 1440p then that wouldn't be the worst thing. I'm ideally looking to get a monitor that I won't have to replace for a few years but I'll likely change video card at some point in the next 12 months or so.

Kerp in mind that not all korean oc to 100-120hz. The qnix and x-star do. I'm not sure about the crossover. Only earlier versions of Catleap oc.

Got a Xstar 1440 monitor back in March? It has been really great, as good as the Asus pb27q and Sammy 850D I had before this one and those cost 650+. Mine can't do 120 very well but 96hz works flawlessly. I think I paid 285 shipped from ebay if that helps any.

Thanks guys. I've been looking at either the Crossover 27QW or the Qnix QX2710. I believe the Qnix can be overclocked and is a matte screen compared with the 27QW's glossy but the 27QW uses a newer kind of panel and the Crossover's have slightly better build quality by all accounts plus the Crossover has a 6ms response time whereas the Qnix is 8ms.

Still a bit unsure if I'm honest. I'll have a look at the XStar 1440 as well though, thanks. smile.gif
