  • Wait this is so cheap, even cheaper than s2721dgf

    • Which is better this or the s2721dgf??? I planning to pull the trigger on s2721dgf today

      • +1

        If you don't already own a s2721dgf, I would go with this one, 20% cheaper

        144Hz vs 165Hz (unlikely to notice the difference)

        Other specs should also be similar to most people

        Can also overclock to 165hz on this one, so only difference is colour space and colour depth, but that doesn't really matter much since this is a gaming monitor anyway


        • I wonder how bad frc actually looks, never used one before.

          • @Jenny Death: I had used 8 bit, 8bit + FRC, 10 bit once at the same time, and I can't see the difference between the 3

            • @ln28909: There's literally nearly a billion more colours on the 10 bit & 8bit+FRC one.

              Not to mention 10bit panels usually lack a SRGB clamp so you would have noticed them looking significantly more vivid than the 8bit one displaying the same signal.

      Innolux panel vs LG.


      Slight loss of panel speed, but you get something back with a genuinely flicker free backlight, better contrast and better reproduction of blacks. I suspect this Gigabyte model is slightly worse tuned than the Viewsonic, but it wouldn't a major change in the above results.

    Got excited thinking it was the ultrawide version haha

  • May not be an UW but still a bangin’ deal for 27 1440p 144hz.

    I had seen this this morning but it disappeared so I didn’t post it, just pulled the trigger, thanks for the heads up!!

    I like it’s also flat panel like s2721dgf

    • Yeah I saw it disappear as I put it in my cart and then just checked randomly and it was back. Also what does UW mean?

      • +2

        UW - Ultrawide

        • +1

          I went through all the monitor acronyms and somehow I missed Ultrawide. Thanks

    Further details and review here Rtings

      thats the VA curved version. This one is a non-curved IPS display

      • Beat me to it, was editing the comment :)

    • +3

      This isn't the same monitor - the Rtings link you posted is G27QC (not IPS) and not G27Q

      • which is better?

        • IPS is better for fps game

        • -1

          IPS has better colours and deeper blacks.

          • @vanreek: doesn't VA has deeper blacks hence the way higher contrast ratio on VA panels ?

            • @gruffjaguar: You are correct, my bad. IPS has better viewing angled, which really isn't needed for gaming.

              • @vanreek: VA tends to have slow contrast decay; resulting in blur or ghosting.

                Not always; and some people arent sensitive to it, but as a generalization..

  • +1

    This, the Dell S2721DGF, or the Xiaomi 34 for triples on Sim Racing ???

    • I’m personally holding out for a Xioami or Gigabyte 34.

      • +1

        after using the xiaomi for a while, the freshness of using an UW is slowly wearing off, but I still get pleasantly surprised playing some games that scales that resolution natively every once in a while, colors isnt that bad, overall good value for these budget 34", waiting for 49" to be natively supported and it'll be time for more upgrades

        • Are there any other benefits you found for non gaming use? I am confused between the 27dgf vs the xiaomi.

          • @John Doh: I have a XB271HU and trying to decide if i should get a xiaomi UW or dell S2721DGF.

            XB271HU just has gsync so i am limited to nvidia hence was looking for a freesync monitor

            Really confused

  • +1

    i have it for my pc and its really good. colours are nice and the 165 hz is really smooth, I got it for $500 so this is a pretty good bang for ur buck office monitor

  • Wow. That is a great price.
    Compared to viewsonic mhd model with similar spec, this one seems to have adjustable back and better stand.

  • Ahhh cant decide this or the infamous DGF..

  • Exceptional value, would take this over a DGF I think.

  • Great deal!!

  • Like the OPolar blower deal I think a lot of people got FOMO at seeing the hundreds apon hundreds of upvotes the S2721DGF deals get. They ended up with a good panel but paid significantly more than what it was worth.

  • $26 shipping to Melbz

  • What's the difference between this to the xiaomi one aside of the size? It's only 100 bucks difference

    • IPS vs trash VA, 120hz vs 144hz

    • +1

      This one is IPS, the Xiaomi monitor is VA. VA has worse colour reproduction, viewing angles and higher response times which means more "ghosting" in fast-moving scenes and colour banding (another visual hiccup).

      VA does have deeper blacks though, which alongside the 21:9 aspect ratio makes for a better overall viewing experiencing when watching media. Overall I'd say IPS is still superior though.

      • I don't think they meant all VA is trash, rather that the Xiaomi is not great at all for the given refresh rate.

  • -2

    I paid $520 + $20 postage when it was released late september! Its an awesome IPS monitor!

    I'm sad that its super cheap right now :(

  • +2

    Dgf wins
    8bit +frc
    480 nit (vs 350) brightness
    Better ergonomics with swivel and pivot
    Freesync pro (better hdr?)
    Dp1.4 (165hz max anyway)

    G27q wins
    20% cheaper
    Speakers built in
    Osd/gameassist (assume one is cursor overlay?)

    • +2

      This one won for me. Cheaper, can be tuned to 165 anyway, don't care about the hdr and don't care about the stand. Really good price so got one.

  • Damn… this is cheaper than the Viewsonic VX2758-2KP-MHD and better because it can downscale 4K to 1440p (e.g. with the PS5). I'd sell mine and get this if I hadn't already caved and bought a cheap 4K TV.

  • I'm very curious how this display compares to the M27Q, of which there no worthwhile reviews yet.
