    Hey All,
    Looking for a 1440 144Hz 27" and there are not many options that i can find at the moment. Will be running from a 2080 super.

    Samsung JG54 (https://www.pccasegear.com/products/48415/samsung-jg54-qhd-144hz-freesync-curved-27in-monitor) is $419

    Dell S2719DGF (https://www.dell.com/en-au/shop/del...dgf/apd/210-aqoc/monitors-monitor-accessories) is $519 on special at the moment but a TN panel with bad blacks?

    The viewsonic that people keep recommending is out of stock until May ViewSonic VX2758-2KP-MHD

    Is there anything other than the Dell and Samsung around $500 available right now?

    You could also go for 27" Samsung CHG70 if you are willing to spend extra ~$169 over $500.
    https://www.pccasegear.com/products/40884/samsung-chg70-27in-hdr-144hz-freesync-qled-gaming-monitor

    Advantages over JG54:
    - Quantum Dot, QLED VA panel, 125% sRGB = better color/image quality
    - 1ms response time vs 4ms response time
    - HDR600 support
    - better stand with more functions

    So if you play lots of games and movies then it might be worth spending bit extra.. imo QLED alone is worth extra $150 easy.
    Another advantage of CHG70 = it's almost identical to new upcoming 27" Samsung Odyssey G7 monitor except for two things. (240Hz vs 144Hz refresh rate & 1000R vs 1800R curvature)

    Thanks for the advice, ended up with a Dell S3220DGF which reviews really well, was not sure on the 32" but will see how it goes.

    Small hijack, but does anyone know of any 27" 1440p 120Hz+ IPS gsync monitors coming out soonish?
    As it just feels like the PG279Q/E/Z/etc is ageing a bit (e.g. no HDR)

    I'm in the same boat, I know it's a great monitor, but it is definitely aging and I'm hoping for a reasonably priced 32" 1440p with GSync is around the corner.

    27" alone is too small for me, having had an Ultrawide for some years now and prior to that, a 32" 1080p monitor. I think I would struggle going back to 27"...

    ive got a couple acer*144hz predators- they're not bad- and with a little calibration they go hard :) IPS :) etc

    HDR is a bit hyped- its more about dynamic range from brightness (nits) half the time when u have HDR10 standard u probably dont wana enable it because itl literally hurt your eyes in super dynamic scenes- great for movies but really tiring for long gaming sessions with the lights out IMO getting flashbanged literally means ur squinting IRL haha

    i feel ur pain about the age of these panels- Their build quality originally were a bit lame too. id like to see a new generation of them
    maybe with more uniform back lights and zoned back lights


    i rate QLED really hard - infact id probably rather it over generic IPS if the viewing angles are good- assuming itl have less input lag/ghosting

    i can feel a difference between 244 and 144 very clearly- its just a lot more data to help u predict trajectory but 165 to 244 not as much

    Hardly any pc monitors get bright enough to make you squint and peak brightness is what people focus on so much with HDR but in reality the prettiness is the contrast and colour volumes. They are what makes things look nice and vivid and impressive. Basically won't get decent contrast on IPS unless it has lots of local dimming, not enough and if blooms and looks yuck. VA panels are great as 3000:1 even without local dimming give good contrast. A VA panel with even 400 nits peak brightness and 95 dci-p3 or greater will Def give some good HDR performance but very hit and miss on Windows. Best on consoles.

    i agree wide dynamic range matters way more than peak brightness for enjoability but hdr standards implies loads of brightness IMHO where as WDR implies rich deep colours and if so- potentually will be a pannel with strong contrast ratio also-
    so youd want somthing with rich blacks AND WDR for the best desktop experience, that can reach full adobe rgb/dcp/ and overperform srgb standards

    one problem i have with alot of the high refreshrate monitors is their inability to render true reds green and blues- but they're improving quite well nowdays.

    acers current pannels are very nice

    Good Guys of all places, price matched an online price. Happy with the monitor, though i have only used it for productivity purposes so far.

    27GL850 has displaced those models.

    I'd disagree VG27AQ hits around 5.5ms best case usable vs 4ms for LG 27GL850 at 144hz and the 27GL850 has lower inverse ghosting at 60hz too. VG27AQ basically have to turn off overdrive alltogether to use at 60hz resulting in 11mms response time from hardwareunboxed testing. Also note that the viewsonic vx2758-2kp-mhd outperforms it a fraction of the cost (if you can get one, took me a month or two to get stock from ordering).

    meh 1.5ms aint much and the ELMB would be far more noticeable. And aint nobody using 60hz. And the LG's contrast blows @ 700:1 (rtings test)

    I am keen for more reviews on its big brother though

    I might hit up HWunboxed as a BTS patreon and nag em to do one/throw a lil coin their way.

    Any decent mid range 27 ips screens out there around 300-400? 2k would be nice if not for the price then 1080. Light gaming, more Ableton work.
