The white uniformity leaves much to be desired. Anyone have any more info on when the Amazon release is other than October?

Honestly i wouldn't bother if you're looking for a quality display. These AHVA monitors even when they're "good" they're bad if you have semi-strict standards. The 1440p 144hz TNs have better uniformity 90% of the time. I'm not suggesting to get one of those unless of course you need a gaming display, and want to avoid the headache of a prolonged lottery. If i got that screen sample you have i'd want to throw it in the trash. I'm at the point where i think i'll buy a nice TV for all my PC needs besides competitive gaming where i can keep a 144hz panel around. Just my 2 cents.

Asus isn't in the conversation. It's this or Acer, and the ViewSonic is better.

nubcakeBaker: Compared to the pics of the acers linked in one of my previous posts, that looks almost as bad as the worst one. Should def. RMA.

You should try to keep in mind that the Acer pictures were taken correctly, whereas his were intentionally overexposed for exaggeration. They would probably look similar to the "bads" taken by computer lounge.

Speaking of wanting to throw things into the trash, i can't imagine nonchalantly switching back and forth between a semi-glossy or motheye VA TV and a matte TN monitor. tongue.gif
I'd want a single display for ALL needs. Unfortunately, TV's don't have proper input lag for that. The ones that do are not that great.

I need to return my PG279Q (2 stuck pixels). So rather than take a pg279Q, or the Acer one , you advise me to take ViewSonic?
Except my dead pixels pg279Q was pretty good. On what points the ViewSonic is superior?

Thanks

- Viewsonic came out after the nVidia firmware was fixed for G-SYNC, so you run 0% chance of getting the vertical line issue. All other models have stock that existed prior to May 2016, and if you get one of those models you would have to ship the monitor to a repair center to have it updated or deal with broken firmware.

- Viewsonic is the cheapest option.

- The panels themselves are the same, Asus had worse QC than Acer. Viewsonic appears on par or better than Acer at this time.. but it's still new so you should consider this a wash. Only one review exists to my knowledge, though it is favorable.

There is basically zero reason to buy any of the competitors at this point in time.

What about this brand new about-to-be-released ViewSonic VP2771 27". Think this would be a good 1440p 60hz choice? Is it AHVA?

People loved the VP2770. I guess this is the successor.

I wouldn't buy a 60hz 1440p especially not for $500 when i can get an MG279Q for that much. Plus Viewsonic is supposed to be releasing a freesync version of this monitor as well which should also be priced around $500. 144hz is worth it even if it means you may not be getting the best color accurate most uniform panel out there.

Not to mention for $500 you can get the Dell S2417DG which is a 1440p 144-165 Hz G-SYNC monitor (I assume with ULMB too).
