3440x1440 IPS monitor buying advice. - Page 3

Thank you all for the help so far, if there's anything I need help with I'll update this thread.

2160P(4k) has become some kind of "Magical" optimal resolution in some peoples minds, when in fact there are resolutions before it and after it.

You are a ton better off with a 3440x1440 super wide display, far more immersive and you can go 100hz now, and yes the difference between 60-100 is night and day, much over 100 has a fast diminishing return where then benefit is small.

3440x1440 is a much better resolution for a GTX1070 (980ti)+ to drive with far more enjoyable frame rates. At 4k you need to nerf a fair bit of IQ to hit the mediocre frame rate of 60fps (hz adaptive) cancelling out the slightly "crisper" advantage of the higher resolution.

Lastly if 3440x1440@100hz is too costly I would pick 1440P 16:9 @144 over 2160P@60 every time all day long.

Not sure why this turned into a preference thread.

So this is what I am looking for:
- Anything but TN
- 4K resolution
- 60Hz refresh rate (either through Display Port or HDMI)
- 5 ms or lower response time
- 27" to 34"
- Must be a monitor, not a TV
- Below $500

Being powered by 1080's would be nice if you could take advantage of Gsync. Process of elimination the most obvious choice would be Dell PG27AQ, Acer XB280HK, but out of your budget. The closest being able to use Gsync and closest to your budget would be Acer XB280HK but it's a TN.

Budget being the challenging perimeter your best was suggested already and one I also was looking at myself months ago, the P2715Q. Dell makes solid monitors IMO and even if there are QC issues, impeccable support I learned for myself but you give up Gsync.

I ended up with XG2700 myself to take advantage of adaptive sync which makes it much smoother than monitors without.

Narrowed down to P2715Q from Dell $529 or XG2700 from Viewsonic $549 would fit what your seeking and being closest to budget.

On a side note: There is a long shot Nvidia accepts adaptive sync VESA standard or if you someday have an AMD GPU you leave the door open of possibility of having freeysync at your disposal where you wouldn't have that chance with P2715Q.

Okay, I'm really in doubt by now. The 3440x1440 option is very appealing, but they're the same price as the 27" 4K options around here. I'm personally perfectly fine with 60Hz, and switching to 100Hz would only require me to upgrade more to keep my games at a 100FPS.
I do not care about FreeSync, GSync, Vsync has served me well so far.

I'd love a 21:9 but with the vertical pixels that a 4K display has. Until then I think I'll stick with 16:9.
I found a nice option, way under my budget, let's see what you guys think of it:

LG 27UD68-P
It supports 4K60Hz, 5ms response time, IPS, 27", and a bezelless design.
Bonus are a VESA mount and FreeSync support.

Solid recommendation, thanks.
Will be considering it as an option.


I found some stuff myself, but can't confirm what HDMI / DisplayPort they are running because the site I use to find them is kind of lacking.
LG 27UD68-P
LG 27MU67-B
Acer H277HK
The 27UD68 is a revision of the 27MU67, mostly. I wouldn't be surprised if it's the same panel in the Dell i linked, but Dell has better bright/dead pixel warranty. I know for a fact that the 27MU67 has a terrible coating (too fuzzy for 4K), but i can't say if it's the same or improved on the 27UD68.

It is Freesync though, 40-60Hz range, so not beneficial to you since you have a GTX1080, but still it's a great monitor, imho. It also has height adjustments, tilt, pivot that many monitors in this price range don't offer.

$509 right now on Newegg ( I personally got it for $460!!!): http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA1UH4KZ7831

i can promise you any extra pixels you get with 4K are just thrown out the window at 27".

i've tried 40" 4K @ 60Hz and 27" 1440p @ 144Hz and i will pick the 1440p monitor all day every day. Its my go to monitor for 90% of games i play. But i do enjoy a lot of first person shooters and such.

Also my single 980ti just crushes most anything at very high/ultra settings.


IMO go single 1080 and 1440p with high refresh rate and as low input lag as possible. After playing with 1ms response time panels i just can't go back to anything else as i feel like i'm moving in slow motion.


i don't think i'll be getting another 4K montior until i can get something ~45" that has a 1ms response time, 120Hz refresh rate, and slightly curved. And i feel the only panels that will do this are some OLED's that wont' be coming around for an acceptable price for a LONG time.

But if you are dying for some 4K experience, the korean 40"+ panels are pretty inexpensive and will be able to fill that hole for the time being.

Any clear difference between the -P and -W models? The stand is different, but aside from that I don't see anything.

I think the difference has to do with connectivity. Panel is the exact same.

Most websites are saying the only difference is the colour, where the P model has a black stand and back:

and the W model has a silver stand and white back:

However the P-model a local comparison site shows has a completely different stand.

Yes the P is for the black back models but to get pivot and height adjustment one make sure its the P-B version
