Unless you're legally blind, why would anyone want a 27" 1920x1080 monitor? I still don't get why one industry thinks we need 1920x1080 on a 5" cell phone, while another thinks 1920x1080 is all the resolution you'll ever need no matter how big your screen.

I bought myself Achieva Shimian QH270-Lite on ebay and it is a 2560x1440 monitor with 6ms response time. Its basically a rejected apple monitor with no frills and no warranty (sold in Korea for $200). I doubt monitor manufactures will release 2560x1440 monitors at mainstream prices within the end of this year, as Intel predicted. Or 4k monitors by 2015.

Here are some links to sites dedicated to these 27" 2560x1440 monitors:

If you you would like to know more how your graphics card, monitor perform on 1440P and above resolution with certain games, go to to this link:

Thanks for the review. These do look like very good choices for those that don't need a gaming monitor. No offense to this review as I do think it serves a purpose and will be useful to many. However, I think I'm going to quit reading monitor reviews for a couple of years. Maybe by then my 15 year old monitor and my 10 year old ~$500 LCD will be surpassed by something new and better.

Pass. 27'' is way to big for 1080p, needs 1440 at the minimum.

Manufactures need to stop making 1080p monitors. With 4k around the corner, it should be at least 1440 or 1600 now. Were not gonna get anywhere until someone finally starts to really mass produce higher res monitors

[citation][nom]Nintendo Maniac 64[/nom]They already have been surpassed, but the tech is expensive currently:Sony PVM2541 25-inch Professional OLED Picture Monitor[/citation]

Still 1080p, pass.

I don't see many people complain about their 60" 1080p TVs.
60" is waaay bigger than 27". Maybe sit just a tiiiiiiiny bit further from your screen?

5Ms aoc is good for gaming monitor at low cost.
please put the information how much mhz it can handle (to compare good gpu for that) .
15" aoc run at 300mhz in aoc monitor software.

PC monitors are a dying bread for the common home user. I switch to an HDTV with 120Hz... the only drawback is input lag... man I didn't see this one comming especially at 1080p.

It's not bad at all for single player games, but if you play Counter-Strike intensively, maybe not a good idea. But anything other than FPS online is not a real matter.

Get a good Samsung HDTV and get rid of the office. There is some awesome logitech products for input device that let you transform your desktop into a gaming HTPC.

Didn't know this site was full of tech gurus with deep pockets. I will go for this 27" never mind that it's "only" 1080p - I need TV replacement and this will do just fine, especially being IPS panel for such a low cost. Heck even my ASUS 278Q or whatever model is dearer. Any 2560x1440 monitor that is not made in meat factory would cost nearly twice as much so.. Until 4k becomes standard I am fine with 1080p.

I bought myself an Auria for Christmas - it's awesome. Huge, bright, crisp, and not one dead pixel. For $300 less than DELL/HP and $600 less than Apple's product using the same LG IPS panel.

Can anyone with those Auria screens comment on if they have noticeable off angle glow?

Image of an Asus(I know it was e-ips, but it was BAD, even TN did better then this thing. This was MAX bright vs 26% on the other screen) I had next to a Samsung S-PVA. The glow was extreme even at slight angles and the card color reproduction was just awful.

....or spend the same money on a 1440p LG panel by one of the thousands of manufacturers out of Korea or China (or Overlord here in the states) instead of wasting your money on old, out-dated tech.

I agree. The decision to spend more then $300-$400 on a 1600p display is going to bite people in the ass when the 4k displays roll out.

[citation][nom]abbadon_34[/nom]Remember when CRT's supported tons of resolutions and refresh rates, more than most could handle? Then trendiness and HDCP got in the way.[/citation]
still have my 32" CRT 1600x1280@5ms 75mhz since 2006 and going strong. it supports 2560x1920 with 7ms at 60mhz but the flicker annoys me after an hour so i never use it

On behalf of all people who make a fat commission check because you're buying what the industry is telling you and not believing what you see with your own eyes:

Thanks to all of you who think a 1080P screen isn't enough for 27"

This is why you place the most expensive TV right next to one half it's price.

I'm glad most seem to be on the same page as me.

Seriously, Tom's is supposed to be a site for enthusiasts, why bother creating a huge article for such trash resolution monitors. Bad Tom's. bad.
