I have been eyeing the CQ27G1 for a while now, but i've been reading some questionable reviews. I would prefer probably IPS Panel but those seem to be a lot more expensive than VA/TN. Although I honestly have no experience in what differences there truly are between each panel. Last monitor I bought was 8 years ago.

Hoping for a little more detail and suggestion into which monitor I should get, and especially ones i SHOULD'NT get.

I posted a little while ago asking for suggestions but, due to COVID a lot of things have been out of stock so it's taken a lot longer to get around to buying my computer. Almost all parts are on their way now for it.

Appreciate any suggestions / feedback in advance. Thank you.
