who uses monitor speakers.. eww.. who games on anything other then headphones
looking at getting a 1070 + gsync
also after 1440p 144hz recs like op
It's been my favourite of the three
Haha, hopefully no one does
Is there even a 1440p, HDR, IPS, Gsync screen planned?
I can't find any.
i think this one maybe?
that will be $1000aud + tax + tip = $1500 + $100 shipping plz
I wonder when its coming
Considering you only buy a monitor every 5+ years its worth it.
Why bother getting a 27" 144hz 144p when you will buy another one with HDR, IPS etc later on anyway.
I bought the AOC AG271QG which is the same panel as in the Viewsonic, Asus and Acer. 165Hz, 1440 res, gsync and IPS. $899 standard street price, so same as the Viewsonic and Acer. It's pretty nice, very clear and crisp. I chose it over the Viewsonic and Acer because it's a bit more understated, has a headset hook on the right and has 4x USB3 ports with one being a quick charge port.
I believe the Acer uses a slightly newer revision panel? My AOC has a touch of backlight bleed in the bottom right but with brightness at a typical lower level it's not very noticeable. The inbuilt speakers are incredibly weedy and tinny but what do you expect?
Overall it's pretty nice. I thought it would feel like a bigger upgrade coming from my 10 year old Dell IPS 24" monitor but it's not. I mean, it's crisp af and not seeing screen tear at 75-100fps results in a very fluid gaming experience.
Lel ai my current one is 10 years old so I say it lasted very well
Is viewsonic still ok? Have a bunch of their older monitors
the panel in these 4 IPS G-sync 165Hz monitors is the same one made by the one company (AU Optronics). The only real difference between brands is in the case and on screen menu.
Are there any g-sync monitors with programmable LUTs?
shame they are all like $900+
yeah darned g-sync adds quite a hefty premium
are there any decent NON memesync 27" QHD ips panels? Even they seem to go for $500
I've just started looking at a 1440P 144hz+ monitor upgrade. Do you think it's worth waiting for the Samsung CHG75? I can't seem to find any info on it.
id assume the hdr mode adds lag over non hdr panels so i am not sure if anyone will go for it.
remember monitor and tv screen manufactuers need to come up with stupid crap meme tech to sell new screens every 2-4 years
Before now 8k it was 4k hdr and before that it was 4k then before that it was 1080p 3d and before that it was 1080 "smooth motion" interpolated 100-300mhz and before that it was 1080p and 1080i etc etc the list goes on
Anything beyond 4k is overkill and hdr seems like a bit of a waste on pc monitors at the moment especially considering the patchy support in games and windows 10 itself not to meantion the stupid high pricetag.
Just want to add my experience with my new monitor.
I have bought the Viewsonic XG2703-GS.
I have had a pretty decent Korean IPS monitor for a while, so the difference in colors were not that great. Clarity was another story though. The panel is just amazing. Was pretty lucky with the BLB, my old monitor was a bit worse.
Other than that, I never had the cash to buy this luxury until recently. The change that G-Sync brings has now spoiled me forever. I doubt I will pick up my console again
I don't think this monitor gets enough recognition. I think the main reason is the price in other countries though. They are actually a bit cheaper here than Asus and Acer, and on par with the AOC. Add the 3 year warranty, and I feel Viewsonic have a real winner with the XG2703-GS.
I agree, I have both the Viewsonic XG2703-GS and the ASUS PG279Q (both 2017 models). The Viewsonic has far superior back light uniformity/less bleeding compared to the ASUS for less - It definatly feels and looks more "gamey" than the ASUS but that is not a bad thing.
are there any known upcoming releases to look out for, maybe with hdr and improved qc?
Interested in this too. I'm in the market for one of these screens but I see a lot of talk about imminent game changing tech.
