  • can't complain at this price

    • I think this essentially matches what the Samsung monitors were going for on their education store

  • Good price but VA penal

  • Flat VA will have some struggles with viewing angle, but this is a newer VA panel from AU Optronics with limited info at hand. Early viewings leave it looking fairly speedy, but there are still traces of minor dark smearing in footage that I've seen.

    Solid price, and solid performance, but buyer beware.

    • How did you find out that this was one of the newer Optronics panels? Can't see anything on tftcentral or just generally around.

      • I was going off them having a 31.5" flat model, but I'm now realising it's probably a Samsung panel, as per the 27" SR75 Space Monitor.

        Whatever it is, the AOC AG273QX, the MSI MAG272QP and MSI MAG272QR would all use the same panel as this.

  • Decent price, but 250 nits brightness, isn't that a little low?

    • It is, but then plenty of other monitors can only do 250nits contrary to their advertising

    • SDR content is generally calibrated for 100 nits, so not really. The strobing mode will probably be too dim though.

  • To people worried about VA,

    I went from maining a acer xb271hu (144hz ips)
    to x2 samsung LC27JG54QQEXXY (144hz va)

    Honestly, if we talking about gaming, in my subjective opinion, i prefer the VA panel.

    • I regularly switch from VA to IPS (work, gaming) and I honestly find them pretty equal. The colours and viewing angles are about the same. Only big issue with VA is the black smearing when you scroll web pages that have a lot of grey-ish elements again black colours. Compared to TN, VA is way closer to IPS.

  • I can't find any information regarding HDMI version? is it 1.4 or 2.0 HDMI?

    • +1 vote

      nvm, it's 1.4

      • it says 1.4 on the website and in the manual but I contacted Wireless1 directly and they told me it supports both 1.4 and 2.0 and it's running for me right now at 1440p 144hz through HDMI. There is a slight flicker though so I'll be switching to a displayport cable soon.

  • Would this be any good for Xbox Series X?

    • Ideally you'd want a 4K monitor

    • The series S is targeting 1440p so the X should have a compatible 1440p mode

    • Many monitors don't have the EDID information to display 120Hz at 1440p over HDMI. It would be a lucky dip if this one does. But in theory it should be able to. If you're happy with 1440p 60Hz then it would work fine.

  • OOS

  • +1 for VA panel. Better black and proper contrast than watching the grey and white blobs of light bleed on IPS technology.

  • FYI in stock again.

  • FYI OOS again :)
