Lowest Latency 1440P IPS Screen I can Get for $300?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Tragically I scratched the screen on my wonderful Swift PG278Q and am looking to buy a new monitor but am not in a position to spend $600+ on a new swift. I am looking at the variety of 1440p IPS 60HZ offerings in the $300 dollar range, but it's hard to find much information on input lag. I'm sure the latency will be higher than the Swift, but what is the best panel I can get in this regard for around $300? I'm not a competitive gamer but I'm fairly sensitive to input lag. Thanks!

P2416D should be excellent if I can trust pcmonitors.info and myself. TFTCentral also report next to no input lag on some other P-series monitors.

EDIT: Clocks to 75Hz and looks nice and crisp.

Thanks for the input! 24 inches is a little on the small side for 1440p, though. I'd ideally like something in the 25-27 inch range.

It's above your $300 budget, though.

Great looking monitor, but it is definitely out of my budget.

The two I'm most heavily looking at is this ASUS: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824236453&cm_re=pb258q-_-24-236-453-_-Product

and this Acer: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824009728&cm_re=1440p-_-24-009-728-_-Producttongue.gif

The ASUS has a better overall build with the adjustable stand, but I can't find any real information on the latency associated with these two panels. That is more important to me than build.

For the Asus there is a review here:
http://www.tftcentral.co.uk/reviews/asus_pb278q.htm

Can't find one for the Acer.

If you're looking for 25" you could also consider the Dell UP2516D. It's slightly over $300 if you find a good deal.
It's a 10-bit panel with factory calibration and good color accuracy for the money. Don't know about it's lag.

This review is for a significantly older 27 inch version, do you think the panel is the same in the newer 25 inch? Thanks!

Oh my bad. Most likely not, because its a different size.

No worries smile.gif

The Dell you mentioned seems to be in the 450-500 dollar range online, unfortunately.

Yeah, the price on Newegg is ~$500 on Amazon.com it's ~$350.
Can't compare the US prices, because I don't know good US shops.
In Germany it's under 300€ and Dell MRSP is 380€.
