Are there any near perfect 1440p monitors out there?

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
I've been in the market for a new monitor and decided on a 27" 1440p monitor. A couple years ago the korean monitors were a hell of bang for the buck. 1440p, IPS, relatively low delay, usually 75+hz refresh rate.

So far my research into a current monitor for under 500 that can do over 60hz refresh rate and not have some problems (excluding low quality stand/bezel) is proving hard.

-Acer XF270HU seems to have ghosting issues
-Pixio PX277 seems to have banding problems
-Asus Mg279q seems to have quality control issues
-Qnix seems to have PWM flickering problems

Are there any monitors I am missing? the only other requirement I have an HDMI slot so that I can use my prime stick when my PC is off.

The crossover 144 fast seems like a decent candidate but i'd essentially be paying $480 dollars for a monitor from Korea with not much guarantee.

Thanks for the reply, but after using IPS/ PVA screens for the last couple years, a TN panel would be a huge downgrade.

Ok, but the S2716DG doesn't seem to have any of those problems that you listed.

You can check out this one, i'm also looking for one,and maybe you like it. It's not that well known, but i think it's a good option.

It is supposed to go up to 75Hz, like some sites report, but i am not 100% sure of that. And with some luck maybe getting to 80Hz won't be too hard.

Good luck shopping, and also let me know if you find something interesting.

I will let you know if I find anything, for now I may take the chance with an Asus MG279Q

I RMA'd 2 of those, they had BLB in the bottom right corner, and weird press marks in circle shape in the middle of the screen. Also very grainy coating and some users were experiencing pixel inversion problems, also can't change gamma. It's far from near perfect. The design was great, colors were pretty well too, but those issues killed it for me...

Yeah, I've since learned that this monitor has those problems.

 

It seems to me that finding a good monitor today is pretty much impossible unless you want to spend a small fortune.

Asus PG279Q and Dell S2716DG. First pg279q from Newegg (open box) had 4 bright spots - returned. I ordered the second one from Amazon Warehouse and it's perfect. I'm on my third Dell - first one had a white pixel and buzzying issue plus thick AG (ver A00), second was still buzzying (ver A00) and I asked Dell for an RMA, thirs is perfect (ver A03) light AG coating.

Check this out, it might be worth looking in to.

Using a Chinese site, I added the most popular G-SYNC monitors, MOST IMPORTANTLY including the upcoming ViewSonic XG2703-GS, which I really hope will clear the BLB madness in 144Hz IPS panel market.

The prices for most of the Asus, Acer's are exactly the same on this site, so this might not be a very good example. But they are rather close in Ameraca/Europe market to be fair.
