I am looking to upgrade from an Acer 1440p 60Hz monitor and am wondering if it is worth $50+ more to get the XG270HU over the KG271. Are there any major quality issues for the cheaper one?

I know they are both TN panels. Will downgrading from IPS be that bad? I've had a TN monitor before but that was a while ago.

If there are any monitors you think are better, then my budget is ~$380.

The amazon page, Newegg page, and micro center pages all show this as 144hz. I heard there are two models of the monitor.
 
Ah, I see now. Hmm, yeah there doesn't seem to be any difference in specs between the two. In fact, it seems like the KG271U looks to have a VESA mount, whereas the other doesn't, making it looks like the KG may actually be the superior monitor for a lower price...
 
Hard to say, I'm sure the quality of TN varies by panel to some extent. I'd try to go look at it in store of possible. I avoid TN as my last TN monitor (admittedly a very cheap one) had very bad, washed out colors. YMMV.
