This looks to be the cheapest price by at least $200.
It's a VA panel, so I'm not sure if it's a great panel or not, but the space saving design may appeal to some.
which is better for gaming, VA or IPS or ?
I always thought IPS > VA > TN
They all have pros and cons so pick your poison.
IPS: slower response but better view angles and colors
VA: smearing, but better contrast
TN: best response time but worst view angles and colors
I use a 144hz IPS and it’s nice, though the contrast on my VA is nicer. But that has mild smearing. TN I can’t stand and with modern VA/IPS being pretty fast, I’d never recommend them.
IPS are slowly nearing the response time gap between itself and TN too.
There's already been 360Hz TN panels announced for release later this year, so it's more a case of everything having jumped, but the controller boards supplying the voltage to the panels needing to go up a notch to match the latest TN has to offer.
But yes, 1440p 240Hz VA and IPS panels will be interesting to see as they start to appear from March onwards.
VA supposed to give better colour over IPS
Better contrast. Not so much colors.
Worse colour accuracy, but most people probably aren't looking for that in a screen.
If smearing isn't an issue on a given VA panel (very rare), a consumer would buy it 9 times out of 10. There's a reason why modern LCD TVs are almost exclusively VA panels.
https://www.pchardwarehelp.com/guides/lcd-panel-types.php for a brief run-down of the 3 major panel types.
So seems VA for workstation, IPS generally for games and photoshop.
In high contrast office applications, VA would be terrible while scrolling due to dark smearing, so not necessarily.
I vote IPS. Response time is overrated.
Free shipping will apply to most metro areas :)
Got the 27" apart from the bracket being large and clunky its a great monitor w
144hz(not sure if 31" is) and free sync with updated firmware. Great picture for gaming.
VA and no USB-C I'll pass
Is there a USB-C at this price point?
Been waiting to pull the pin on a few ~32" monitors. These aren't the monitors you're looking for.
Looks like a great option if you have limited space and are looking for a decent general purpose workstation monitor
The 27" version might be 1440p, but it's also 144Hz and supports 4k downscaling. Given it's gone on sale for $300-$330 a fair bit, this isn't much of a buy in comparison.
Where is the 27 inch for $300? I actually need a 1440p monitor for an upscale I have, preferably ips with a headphone jack out.
It's a VA panel, but that was a Boxing Day sale for around $310.
Best IPS you can get in that range at the moment is the Viewsonic one for $380 (+delivery) on sale.
Kogan have one that’s $200 or so, and officeworks has a 25 inch one for $380 that’s factory calibrated. I feel like if I’m paying that much though it should have HDR or something.
@AustriaBargain: I thought we were talking about 144Hz monitors.
If you want 4k IPS, have a look at the U2790VQ or the 276E8VJSB. $350 pickup, $365 delivered, $320 on sale.
@jasswolf: I don’t care about 144hz really. I want it as a second monitor and also to plug my old consoles into via an overpriced up converter I bought, only the up converter is limited to [email protected] A 4k tv won’t accept 1440p, but a monitor will.
@AustriaBargain: These days the better option would be a capture card in the PC and a then using integer scaling either by software or hardware support, the latter of which is a feature of modern graphics cards.
There should also be integer scaling support coming to monitors, but that might be tad more pricey.
Clampless is cheaper?
That’s a completely different monitor…
Check their webpage. They don't make the exact same monitor with a stand. Probably the same panel. But up to people.
I like the clamp concept for narrow desks but anyone seen a hack to make the clamp thicker than 90 mm?
