Question Hey, I'm looking for a new monitor and need help at choosing one.


Dec 12, 2015
Hey, The main purpose of the monitor will be for gaming. My budget is 450$ and i'm searching for one with 1440p and 27 inch and 60hz. I found the Dell UltraSharp U2719D and P2720D and i would like to know if the ultrasharp is worth the 60$ more than the P2720D. Is there any better monitors for the same price ? thanks for the help.
In comparing the two, They are very similar in specs. The P2729D seems to have more display colors @ wider color palate at 1.-7billion vs. 16.7 million for the U2719d.
They both have higher quality ips panels with 178/178 viewing angle.

The VG27Bq referenced above has a tn panel with only a 178/160 viewing angle.

If you can see monitors in person , that is best.
Otherwise read reviews.
