So i recently bought one of the korean monitor 2795qhd and have been extremely please with it for its price and performance.
Now i'm thinking of going to dual set up and wondering.
Between these 2 - XB271HU vs 2795QHD and whether I should go for the one that is more expensive.
1. Is there a huge different in terms of the picture/color quality ?
2. Major difference will be 144Hz vs 96 Hz (at a minimum refresh rate) and the G-Sync module yeah?
3. Height adjustable / tilt-able / rotatable which can be fix with a vesa mount.
I'm just wondering why do you go for XB271HU instead of one of the korean one for its much cheaper price point ?
Curious, why would you go with 2 different monitors for a dual monitor set up? Looking at NewEgg your Crossover is half the price of the XB271HU, if you love your current one why not just get another? I can't answer all your questions but I'll take a shot.
1. Assuming the Crossover has the LG AH-IPS panel, it *should* be a tad better than the AUO panels in the Acer? I am not positive though, but generally people love the LG IPS panels. These AUO panels in the Acer and Asus 144hz IPS monitors have their fair share of flaws but if you get a good one you will love it.
2. Isn't the 2795QHD max of 75hz refresh rate? You could overclock it I guess, but you run the risk of frame skipping. I'd take the guaranteed refresh rate of 144hz and overclock of 165hz any day over the Korean IPS monitors. Is there a difference between 96hz and 144hz? Yes but you will likely not notice it depending on what type of games you play. If it is CSGO then you might see a difference. The bigger question is, will you see a difference in 96hz overclocked with frame skipping, compared to guaranteed 144hz, possibly yes. I have never owned a Koren IPS monitor so maybe the one you have will not exhibit frame skipping. But that would be a deal breaker for me.
G-Sync will not make your games look smoother. 45FPS is still 45FPS. All it does is eliminate tearing by matching monitor refresh rate with frame rate. It does work very nicely especially within the 45-120FPS range.
Also keep in mind the 6ms response time of the Crossover vs 4ms response time of the Acer.
Here's a link to the 2795QHD thread on this forum. People report frame skipping even at 75hz?
3. The Acer is VESA compatible, not sure of the Crossover.Edited by jlp0209 - 2/8/16 at 9:38pm
