Original Coupon Deal

These 2 new monitors got some pretty good reviews. Specs look good for entry gaming: FHD, 144hz, Freesync (G-Sync Compatible for 27"), ips panel, non-curved screen (just my preference).

I'm considering one of them. Read a lot of comments recommend 24" for 1080p but still thinking bigger is better.

    Read a lot of comments recommend 24" for 1080p

    Ignore them, it's fine at either res.

    Phenomenal value. Tempted to buy three 27" for a triple setup.

    • +5 votes

      Completely disagree, but only because I can clearly tell the difference. But different strokes for different folks.
      This is a great price however for anyone on a budget.

      •  

        clearly tell the difference? pixels are only 10% bigger on a 27" screen

        it's more a matter of social status, 24" was the 1080p norm for that long, but industry will market bigger sizes and people will buy them

        back when iphone was released people were saying 4" was the "perfect size", and that it would be impossible for it to get bigger because you wouldn't be able to type with 1 hand, where are they now?

    •  

      well ya gotta pay to play

      if you want 2,560 x 1,440 then pay more

      i have a 4k 28" (the infamous Acer 281) and I largely run 1,440p or even 1,080p when I'm relaxing…. i would hate to be locked at 1,080p… vote with your wallet

    • +2 votes

      not easy to drive 5760x1080p to over 100+ fps

  •  

    FINALLY a 1080p 144hz 27".

    All of them have been 1440p recently, and i hate working at higher res.

    Gaming? Great!
    Trying to work on poorly scaled in-app elements? Hell.

    Thanks for the deal!!!

    •  

      In general i have no idea why it took a company so long to bring a fhd ips 144hz. This shouldve been around years ago.

  •  

    Additional $20 off when you use PLENTY100 :)

    EDIT: correction, the title price is already with the $20 off

  •  

    27" seem to be all sold.

  •  

    Personally I would rather have 75-90Hz and 400nits (for the 27" model 1440p).

    144Hz 250nits is just poor for anything. Even gaming 90-100Hz 300nits would be better.

    • -1 vote

      My current monitors are 250nits, and literally face the window that gets the afternoon sun, directly at the screen.

      It's still super bright.

      250 isnt super poor by nature.

    Good deal if you're ok with waiting nearly a month

    Delivery:
    Estimated between Wed. 11 Dec. and Fri. 13 Dec

    Would like to know what's better. IPS, LED or VA? Particularly for eyes due to long screen time. My use is mainly gaming and some video editing.
    Comparing the AOC 24" with: Acer KG251QF 25" & MSI OPTIX MAG241C 24"

      The LCD technologies are IPS, TN and VA. LED-backlit LCDs have long been confused as 'LED' screens, which then creates confusion with OLED (and MicroLED, in time).

      To answer your question, it comes down to personal taste:

      VA has the most contrast (deep blacks, vibrant colours), but the worst motion blur and viewing angles. non-OLED HDR TVs use this tech.

      TN has the best motion blur but isn't great for some desktop work due to slight colour inconsistencies from one panel edge to another. This is standard LCD tech for monitors, and has

      IPS has middle of the road motion blur usually, but trumps both technologies on viewing angles. This is standard LCD tech for creatives who need that extra colour consistency on an angle in order to create accurate colour work.

      OLED shits on all of them from a great height for viewing angle, colour reproduction, contrast and motion, but there are no 120Hz+ panels yet and burn-in may become an issue.

      MicroLED should become the de facto standard, but it will take at least 3-5 years.

      If you're going for 240Hz, you probably want TN. If you're going for QHD 144Hz, TN on a budget, VA with good black-frame insertion tech to clean up the motion if you want to try and find a gaming/non-gaming sweet spot, IPS if you're going to do video editing (but you're going to want to calibrate the panel).

      From those, you can look at the AOC I suppose (and I've linked a technical review below this post), but you might be better off with AOC's VA if you're able to use and appreciate their strobing (black-frame insertion) mode:

        I'm really torn up right now because I have a vega 64 and I play games that really need low motion blur.

        DO you have any suggestions?
        I've been looking at TN panels all day and all I managed to find was the alienware AW2518HF, and even then, only the gsync version has ULMB

        •  

          check out blurbusters.com and their forums, you can probably get good answers there

          if you want low motion blur you'll need to do some research find one with good implementation of motion blur reduction, because they vary in effectiveness by a large degree

          benq and asus have a good history as far as i know

          although you really need to make sure you actually need the low motion blur… some games like csgo most pros don't use it because they're just holding angles most of the time and not actually moving.

          •  

            @abctoz: I play a lot of platformers and rhythm games, so when the notes or when the characters start moving, I can see the trail behind them (can't really see when to actually hit a note) and sometimes it really affects the timing especially when it gets to a really high level of gameplay. Kind of want something like a CRT level of performance without using CRT itself.

            I've looked at this list here on blurbusters. I actually spent the majority of this morning just looking through all the monitors and checking which ones were available in Australia. Can't say I'm really happy with the selection we have here though.

            https://www.blurbusters.com/faq/120hz-monitors/

            •  

              @Ghosteye: yeh if you watch a crt vs lcd side by side slow motion, even with blur reduction the CRT still looks better, because there is still frame persistence and pixel transition time on a lcd, so you get half a frame of extra input lag, as well as extra motion blur compared to CRT

              it's probably best if you can find somewhere to try it out first

              this one is on the list seems decent:

              https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/BenQ-Zowie-XL2411P-24-FHD-144Hz-...

              you can even get some good second hand deals occasionally

              and you can read the blurbusters forums to find out the new hot stuff

              •  

                @abctoz: what do you think about the AW2518HF though? I'm willing to fork out a little more for 240hz, thats if it has the same UMLB I guess.

                I just wondering why they have UMLB for the gsync one, but it's on the same list without umlb

                I just discovered that I'm also very sensitive to crosstalk :(

                •  

                  @Ghosteye: sorry i have no idea, the topic is quite complicated and confusing, if you want more informed opinions you're better off asking directly in the blurbusters forums, there are more knowledgeable people there that test this stuff, i only follow very lightly

                •  

                  @Ghosteye: oh i thought you meant how good the ULMB implementation was, according to this it doesn't have ULMB/blur reduction: https://forums.blurbusters.com/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=4662&p=36...

                  in theory:

                  at 240hz that's ~4ms frame persistence
                  with ULMB you can get down close to 1ms frame persistence
                  to achieve that kind of motion clarity you need a ~1000hz lcd monitor

                  and i believe this is actually true, i did this test with 144hz with blur reduction on/off, you can only read the street names when it is on:
                  https://www.testufo.com/persistence#photo=toronto-map.png&sp...

                  or just buy a crt :p

                  •  

                    @abctoz: Honestly, after shopping around and taking a look, the price to performance justification is not enough. At this point asking me to part out my vega and get a gsync monitor is too much :(

                    I think I might sink my teeth on this one and hope panel tech improves over the next 2 or so years.

                    I will be thinking of whether to get either

                    This one or the XG258Q (for the EMLB) over the next couple days. If I can somehow convince myself that it's worth the 250 dollar price difference

                    •  

                      @Ghosteye: if i had to choose i'd be more inclined to side with the asus since they have a history of implementing blur reduction

                      do you mean the price diff between 240hz and 144hz?

                      240hz mainly offers less input lag and looks smoother if you can keep up the fps, but is relatively new tech so may have some quirks. blur reduction between 144hz an 240hz would be similar since the frame persistence of ~1ms doesn't change with strobing as far as i'm aware.

                      you can also keep a look out for good deals on second hand monitors with good blur reduction, i'm very happy with my second hand vg278he which i got 4 years ago for 200 - it can even do blur reduction and it works well

        •  

          If you're looking at FHD 240Hz, it'd be worth finding out from Acer are ever bringing the XF252Q to Australia:

          https://www.rtings.com/monitor/reviews/acer/nitro-xf252q

          https://www.tftcentral.co.uk/reviews/acer_nitro_xf252q.htm

          There'll be other versions, and they should all be around about the price point of the Alienware in current eBay sales.

          The important part is the updated TN panels from AUO, and there's not many models here that currently use it. You can see the benefits in the response time testing and image comparisons.

          TFT Central, RTings, PCMonitors.Info and BlurBusters are the places to get reviews and learn about monitor technologies.

          RE: your questions about ULMB, that's a NVIDIA specific name for their BFI implementation that comes with some GSync implementations.

          •  

            @jasswolf: Damn…. yeah I just looked at both the reviews you listed, this would definitely be something that I would want to get.

            Honestly its not just 240hz, I'm fine with doing 144hz as well or 165hz as long as there's minimal blur and cross talk.

            Just can't seem to find a monitor that will tick those boxes though.

      Reduce blue light with monitor setting or f.lux to reduce eyestrain.

    Panda panel, slightly slow for modern IPS, but here's a technical review:

    what is the view on this kogan as a gaming monitor ?

    https://www.kogan.com/au/buy/kogan-27-curved-qhd-144hz-frees...

    I have been waiting for a price drop on it , but I am open to other suggestions for a 27 1440 144 fsync gaming monitor

  •  

    I have the 27" for about 6 months now and I love it. I think it's definitely worth the money, I paid around the same price and no regrets switching from 60hz ips. I would trade the better colour quality of IPS for the higher refresh rate..

  •  

    Finally some readily available 24" IPS 144hz monitors. Personally waiting for 24.5" AU-O variants

  •  

    Sigh still waiting on a decent deal for CQ32G1

  •  

    Looks like it's out of stocks for both.
    I found it for $249 + shipping on Saveonit.com.au

    Shipping is $7.70 for me
