Monitor advice

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I need a new monitor soon as my Qnix has died and this time want to get something really decent. I can not decide if I want to go 27" 1440p or a widescreen.

Use: Alot of photoshop and web coding, playing games very casual and watching movies/series. That is basicly it.

have a budget of 1500€ so I should be able to get most.

I am quite scared actually of the ultra widescreens and curved ones since I don't know how it will look when using photoshop, it feels like when I watch youtube movies straight lines look rounded lol very weird feel biggrin.gif

ASUS ROG Swift 27" just came out with an IPS freesync version of their TN G-Sync. I have the previous generation and absolutely love it so this is supposed to be more color correct.

If you play a lot of casual games like terraria or older games, you might want to disable G-Sync. ;-) These games don't seem to support Variable Refresh Rate.

If you don't game very often but need space for work and enjoy watching movies, why not try a VA monitor, something like Philip's 4065UC?

If that's not up to scratch with regard to colour accuracy, what about Dell's lineup? The U2515H and U2715H have both received favourable reviews; you could even purchase two of the former.

Yeah the Dell or Asus rog if I really want higher refresh rate would be nice.

What should I go for if I would go ultra wide screen?
