  • How does this compare with Dell S2721DGF which is $20 more

    • Watch the hardware unboxed reviews of both
      I would say the M27Q is best Bang for Buck for budget High Refresh 1440p with better contrast
      The Dell is better overall (as its RRP suggests it is competing in the more premium 1440p category) with worse contrast - also provided you don't mind waiting

    • Out of the box colour needs adjusting (easy to do), and slightly slower response times but makes up for it with virtually no overshoot. Also better contrast ratio than the Dell. If you're deciding between the two, I'd just grab this one.

    I remember when anything more than 60hz on an IPS was a dream. You'd have to import experimental monitors from Korea if you really wanted it.

  • OooOoOooo

    0.5 ms is better than 1ms
    170Hz is better than 144Hz/160Hz OC

    Best monitor ever

    omg, 0.5ms just half of the 1ms, great improvement.

  • Damn I pulled the plug today on an omeni27. Was looking for a something similar for sometime. Dell was gonna be delivered in 35 days. This looks good on specs.

    Keep in mind, this is a BGR not RGB monitor.

    Be prepared for some blurry ass text in some apps until the software catches up to the hardware.

    Or get a VESA mount and install it upside down, so its RGB subpixels again.

    ive been trying to find a teardown, because id love to invert the panel internally.

    • I don't think you need a seperate VESA mount to install it upside down. The mount that comes with it could be flipped pretty trivially by the looks of it.

      https://youtu.be/8-V1E5FNGzA?t=400 you can see the mounting mechanism could easily be fliped

      Apparently some people on reddit had problems enabling GSYNC when upside down, so ymmv

    • I saw this comment last time and I still don’t know if it’s a joke or not..

        Which part do you need help with?

        • Is "BGR" a joke, and does monitoring the monitor upside fix it?!

          • @zuccs: No, its not a joke, the subpixels are built in reverse order.

            And yes, mounting it upside down fixes that.
