I own an Acer XG270HU, great monitor. You have to be careful when buying it though, because some of their early production models had a firmware bug that prevented the overdrive from working properly, leading to some nasty ghosting/blur. I had to send mine in to get the firmware updated, and it wasn't a fun process. But once I got it back, I've been nothing but happy with the quality and features of this panel. IMHO FreeSync/G-Sync is probably the greatest development in gaming in the last decade.
I threw up in my mouth a little when I read the first line of the Asus PG279Q review: "Users looking to build a no-holds-barred rig can literally create an all-Asus system made up of premium components that deliver only the highest performance." Guerilla marketing with sponsored content much? Shame on you, Toms, for being complicit.
When are you planning to review Acer XB271HU, next year ?
It is the same monitor with more inputs (really, it is exactly the same except the inputs).
Glad I picked the Acer XB270HU, So good. Sadly mine has already developed two dead pixels in the lower left corner. Unfortunately it doesn't count as a defect for the Acer warranty and B&H won't exchange it after 90 days for dead pixels.
The link and pricing you have for the AOC G2460PQ in the article is wrong. The link takes you to Amazon for the AOC G2460PQU, a similar monitor to the AOC G2460PQ except for one small problem... the PQU DOESN'T have G-Sync. The pricing appears to be closely made off the PQU which is currently $228 (I'm guessing the price changed after this article was written.)
I daily use the Nixeus NX-VUE24A and the BenQ XL2730Z, I ditched my IPS gaming monitors for the amazing smooth game play I can get with both of these. While they are TN panels the game play experience in no way suffers and the Freesync implementation in both is outstanding.
I wanted to love the Acer XR341CK and bought one, then promptly returned it. Early reviews got cherry picked samples, general consumer buying was a lottery and most ended with an issue. Attempts to get support where treated with bored indifference and I know two different people that went through 3 RMAs before getting a monitor with few enough issues to keep. (They had to pay for shipping each time and Acer would not offer to compensate after the first RAM was a failure as well) Seeing all these horror stories I chose the refund route.
I am hearing that the QA issues have finally been resolved but I feel that for the price point quality should not be a crap shoot, but the norm.
I own a Phillips 4K 40 inch Monitor and it is an awesome screen in just about all respects. I got it for just over $1000 NZ and have never looked back. 4K works very well on the 40 inch with no DPI scaling required.
thank you very much for the list guys, just a quick suggestion if i may. is it possible for you guys to put a min-max freesync range on the charts?. for example something like; "Freesync Range 30-144 Hz" instead of just the max refresh rate.
besides that thank you for always the amazing work
I'm curious why the Dell Gaming S2716DG wasn't included for G-sync monitors? Considering I picked one up on sale last month for ~$480 after seeing some of the quality control issues on some of the Asus monitors.
What is the deal with this? All of these monitors are x1080 resolution. What about those of us that have the hardware to push higher resolution that want 144hz...is there a quality 35 inch gaming monitor out that that can support higher than 1080 and higher than 60hz?
I'm looking for a high hz (120-144) IPS monitor. Don't care for g-sync or freesync. resolution 1080 is enough. 27" would be better ofcourse but dont mind 23" too. Any suggestions? I can't find anyting that needs tons of money cause they all have g-sync or freesync or 2k-4k. I don't mind them. I have gtx 1070 and it can produce more then 100 FPS in most games. I just want to see those frames with IPS quality. that's all I'm asking
Christian, in the 60Hz, 28" 4K category, can you help clear up why you/Tom's have chosen the Asus PB287Q over the Monoprice UHD or CrystalPro that you reviewed in Feb'16? They are both TN panels in the same price segment. And the Monoprice unit received a 2016 Editor Approved stamp.
