27" 1080p Glossy screen under $350?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I'm chasing a 27" 1080p monitor with a glossy finish screen for around $350. Anyone know of any that they can recommend? Something in IPS perhaps.

No reviews out yet since they come out next week, but you may be interested in these:

They are all the same Samsung PLS panel I believe, but different stands (so different prices... metal more $ than plastic). But Samsung is kind of the main player in glossy screens from what I've seen.

Asus also makes some 27" 1080p but they are matte finish I believe (MX279h).

Visit the QNIX thread and step up form 1080p to 2560x1440p and grab a glossy one, that also potential to hit 120hz thumb.gif

If you don't mind heavy and excessive overdrive (-> reverse ghosting hello), Dell S2740L is what you're looking for: in budget, 27", IPS, 1920x1080, glossy.

Lenovo LI2721S wasn't typically reviewed, but it's the same in those attributes, just with no height adjustment or VESA mount option. And it lists 14 ms GTG response time, so likely it doesn't have crazy overdrive and is just a bit slow but perceptually probably better than having high reverse ghosting like S2740L.

If lighter matte is an option, there's more off the top of my head. But aside from the above and the 1440p cheapos, I can't think of anything in the price range.

edit: Samsung S27C750P is 27", MVA, 1920x1080, semi-glossy. Normally $580 but seemingly $260 refurb here:

http://www.prad.de/new/monitore/test/2013/test-samsung-s27c750p-led.html

maybe worth a shot. Measured pixel response looks pretty reasonable for a *VA, better than many IPS options, and you get much better contrast than non-VA panel types. It's a true semi-glossy, not far at all from glossy. Out-of-box correct grays and gamma.

Was considering that HP 27xi, but it costs $599 where I live. Trying to see if I can find one online and have it shipped to Australia for under $350.

Edit: Just found that AOC for $315 locally. Is it glossy? Kind of looks like the Asus MX279H which is matte.

OH sorry AOC I2757 is matte not glossy.

HP 27XI has new coating that makes the screen less reflective when you sit right in front of it (right angle). You will easily recognize the glossy screen when you check it from other angles. That coating is really good,the image is still sharp (because it's glossy) and you will be less annoyed when seeing the reflection.

DELL S2740L is too glossy because it has a glass in front of the panel inside.

Google the reviews of them.

I think you should consider Korean glossy IPS monitors, 2560x1440. You can still set the resolution as 1920x1080.

At first I planned to buy AOC I2757, checked it at the store and it was not very impressive. And then I met HP 27XI, I love it, its design is really good. I prefer glossy screen like you. The day I brought my cash to the store to buy HP 27XI , it's not in stock that day. Haha. Finally I researched the Korean monitor and bought ACHIEVA SHIMIAN QH2700-IPSMS with DVI, VGA, HDMI and DP. I'm using it right now. It was risky to buy monitors from Korea.
