Also, I will never go back to TN panels. I am not a pro gamer, I just like solid blacks and colors. Image quality trumps all for me.

So .. TNs are not very beautiful?

So .. what are their advs? is it the speed?

Yep -- Most responsive gaming displays but notorious for inaccurate colors and poor blacks.

For example, the TN based ASUS with 144hz looks AWESOME at 144hz motion wise but the colors and black levels are so poor, I wouldn't pay $100 for that monitor...

OK this is very important to me because i want to buy one ..

So .. if you wouldn't buy TN panels, what is you solution? how about ASUS PB278Q? I want to reach this point, because if PB278Q is not either, then I should consider Korean monitors.

I also heard and learned that colors and image quality decreases for Korean monitors at high refresh rates ..

I want to buy so I want to investigate as much details so I have good decision thumb.gif

I had the Asus VG278HE for only 5 days and it was a really terrible experience. Generally, motion in games were much more fluid but overall, it wasn't a better display than my VA panel monitor mostly because the colors sucked real bad which really hurt both my gaming and browsing experience. I was gaining an additional benefit while losing a very crucial one and at the end of the day, I had to rid of it. Wasn't worth the compromise and money spent, for me at least. Might be a different case for you.

What monitor did you end up with and liked best overall? Which VA panel?

My former Acer monitor which I reviewed on OCN. The colors are not as vivid and clear as an IPS panel but it has better response times and is a much more better compromise, for me, than the Asus. It should be my only review so check it out.

P.S. I should add that the monitor has grown on me since when I wrote that review and now. Apparently, I was comparing it to the IPS display on my laptop which was wrong.

so ,, what did you do then ??

i might have like your feeling abut the monitor, I could buy the VG278HE and have similar observation about the colors and the resolution ..

i think you meant about the benefit is the high speed of 144Hz which i would like to have and it attracts me until this moment and I want to buy BenQ XL2720T or ASUS VG278HE for this reason ..

on the other hand, i want the dell u2713HM or ASUS PB278Q for high res and beautiful colors ..


what you think is the best choice?

I sold the Asus and kept my old monitor. What I plan on doing now is to find a way to test a 2560x1440p monitor, preferably korean, since that's what I can afford, before buying it. I may end up noticing too much lag while gaming and decide that my Acer is still better. I also don't want to lose money on hardware that I won't be keeping.

So, I'll suggest you find a way to test them before commiting to buy. Compare it to your current monitor before making a decision. You see, I really liked the 144hz feature but it wasn't worth the poor color reproduction. The guy I sold the monitor to said it was better than what he had before which might be the same for you but I can't guarantee that. The problem with monitors is just the same with headphones, you think you have something good until you see/hear something much better.
