If I were looking for a VA panel that would definitely be on the list.
32" (16x9) is still too large for a 2' distance IMO, I feel like the sides would be beyond what you can see when looking straight and I feel like the aliasing would be worse than on a 27" screen.
27" gives you 108ppi where 32" is 90ppi. 90ppi isn't actually bad though, it's like 24" 1080p.
For me part of the reason 27" 1440p is optimal is because in most games you can get away with minimal AA which makes it so much easier to run higher framerates.
All opinions btw.
Never used the others but Nixeus (in my case) did a fantastic job on binning the panels. I have none of the glow issues you typically hear complaints about.
I'll always recommend the 27" EDG as long as they keep that level of quality.
I believe @The Pook also said they had a good IPS panel, maybe the process of making the panels is getting better?
The best advice I can give on picking a 27" IPS panel is simple:
Don't overspend. I got mine for $330 with a 15% coupon for eBay mobile. I opted for the crappy stand version and replaced it with my other stand. Win-win IMO
Don't buy into G-Sync either, FreeSync now covers all GPUs. Another reason I forgot...I recommend the Nixeus panels because their VRR is solid. Since FINALLY allowing freesync to work I haven't noticed a single issue with FreeSync. Now that I'm playing FFXV, that is very appreciated.
Yeah, I got a great panel! But it's impossible to find nowadays and there are similar/better monitors for ~ the same price or cheaper though.
Don't waste money on an asus monitor way overrated and overpriced to boot.
well I have two nice monitors, I have a HP ultra sharp 2560 X 1600. that cost me like $990 several years ago. than I got a Asus MG279Q like two years later for $590. I may have just got lucky, but I have not ever had any of the issues with this monitor, that many other complain about with the cheaper models, made by other companies.
