Monitor IPS 27" 1440p

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I look for possibly under 500 euro the monitor with the best price/quality ratio.

I've considered these models having the characteristics written on title:

- Asus PB278QR
- BenQ GW2765HT
- Dell U2715H

I discarded the BenQ almost immediately due to its excessive input lag, while I'm not sure about the Asus since on TFT Central there is the only the review of the old model using PWM dimming. The Dell really seems to be the best suitable for me, and it has also a good response time. The only thing that scares me a bit is the pixel pitch below average.

If 27" 2560x1440 pixel pitch is 'below average' why ask about three different 27" 2560x1440 monitors? TFT Central reviewed the PLS version of the PB278Q, not the AHVA version which is what is sold now: http://www.overclock.net/t/1311936/official-asus-pb278q-pb278qr-thread-read-the-1st-post

That's what I wrote.

My concern about the Asus is all about the common issues we're all aware of the latest monitors like PG279Q, XB271HU, MG279Q, PG348Q, X34, etc. because I really can't stand that BLB mixed with huge amount of IPS Glow on the corners. Is the PB278QR Samsung panel less affected than those AU Optronics panels?
