Hello guys,

I am searching for 2 monitors, a 144hz 1440p monitor for gaming and a regular 1080p monitor as a second display for browsing, video streaming and such. Thing is, I'd like a pair of monitor that match. Do you guys know of any companies that are putting out monitors of a wide range of performances, but keeping the same style / chassis?

Any help is much appreciated

Hmm, 27" 1440p 144hz and 1080p 144hz from Acer, same chassis:

IPS and TN though, so they won't match all that well. Cheap 1080p panel though.

Could pull of something similar, but with both IPS, with LG for about the same effective price, but for only a little more you can just have two 1440p...

ASUS has a few monitors that almost look like each other, but they often switch up the bases a little bit.

Not really seeing any 1080p 60hz panels in the same style as 1440p 144hz panels. Doesn't seem to be a thing.

The chances of two LCD panels with different resolutions being the same size, not so much. Not to mention the price gap, chances are they would not be in the same line of products.

How big were you wanting them?

Appreciate the response guys.
Yeah I did some research prior to making the post and it seems like price gap / product lines makes it really hard to find what im looking for, I'll have to settle for something else.
Those Acer monitors seems to be fairly priced, not sure where they stand in comparison to the LGs.
Do you guys have any experience with these brands?

Acer is pretty much the #1 or #2 when it comes to high refresh gaming displays. Their Predator series is top notch. Usually a very similar model available from ASUS, and occasionally Dell.

LG makes their own panels typically, so they have that going for them, but I haven't really looked at their panels in person.

Lately there has been a flood of cheap 1080p 144hz monitors on the market. So someone is making cheap panels.
