Seems OK for general use and casual gaming. I was really hoping for 144hz refresh rate. Shame, my search for a cheaper 1440p 144hz monitor goes on. Still hot vote on this.

Casual gaming?
The problem with these new cheaper FreeSync/G-Sync monitors is the very small effective FPS range. 48/70FPS is a tight range but I guess it's better than nothing

Does this apply to Acer XG270HUomidpx? Can't seem to find the effective FPS range.

The FreeSync monitor? Looks like the effective FPS range is 40-144FPS.

Thanks rev6, appreciate you finding that spec. To take advantage of freesync on my XG270HUomidpx , all I need is for NVIDIA to support freesync or change my gtx970 to a AMD card :-) Still, gaming on the monitor looks really good at 1440p, even without freesync. Picture is so crisp and sharp. Sorry if a little off topic.

Can anyone help me with a general question re. monitors? Why do monitors generally cost more than the equivalent size tv given that they obviously lack the tuner / aerial gubbins etc?

a 1080p 60hz monitor will generally cost the same as a tv of the same size, maybe less. Ones which become more expensive typcially have higher resolutions (1440p, 70% more pixels than 1080p or 4k, 4x) higher refresh rates, typically 120hz or 144hz, adaptive sync technology (freesync, gsync) or a combination of any of the above.
heat for the amazing lookin bird
I know 60hz won't appeal to the serious gammers but this deserves heat, awesome price for a really good monitor with freesync
It's 60hz so that Freesync is likely a bit of a waste as I wouldn't advise it for gamers.
It's TN and not IPS so its not for photo use.

Seems a standard price for an entry level 1440p 27" monitor.

this is a 27" with 1440p and IPS for £275.

this is a 1080p monitor with 144hz, gsync and 1ms for £250.

75hz so 75fps which is more than adequate at 1440p.
Also it's a gaming monitor so isn't aimed at professional users. They'd be idiotic to get this over a 1440p IPS panel...

Could you please link to other 1440p freesync monitors at this 'standard price'? The next best I can find is the Acer Predator XG270HU 144Hz at £349.98

The BenQ you linked suffers from pretty high input lag, so isn't very good for gaming.
The Acer is 24" and G-sync so people will n eed to invest in an Nvidia GPU if they've not got one already...

on the contrary adaptive sync is very useful if you cant maintain 60fps, stops the stuttering associated with vsync when it drops below 60

So you're overruling iiyama's official specs?

Bold!

Clearly says 75Hz, which is 75fps.

And RE 75fps being fine at 1440p, well IMO it is and is perfectly fine AND affordable for most gamers. Needing/wanting a constant 120fps at 1440 is a bit of a luxury. Not even a Crossfirefire 390x setup can hit 100fps in Witcher for example...

both your post and the specs on overclockers state refresh 60hz.the sync range is not the same as refresh rate. neither of those links you've post state it is 75hz refresh. i agree the monitor has good specs for the price. your example of witcher 3 probably isnt the best, it one of the most demanding games out right now and AMD doesnt perform particularly well on AMD. Mad Max runs for me at 1440/120 maxed out on a single 980ti, and games that are a few years old can comfortably hit this.

Thank you Adam, do computer games generate images at these higher resolutions or are the numbers for show, like 4K TV's with no programme material anywhere near the resolution they can handle?

yes, well PC games anyway, will let you select the resolution. Most games today support up to 4k, but you will need some serious hardware to power games at that resolution. Plugging a ps4 or xb1 into a 4k is not really going to do much.

"The BenQ you linked suffers from pretty high input lag, so isn't very good for gaming." Are you referring to the 4ms stated in the Amazon title or something else and if something else where did you get the info from ? (looking for monitor and good sources on info).

60Hz is perfectly fine for gaming and FreeSync
good price, but i honestly free-sync is pointless at that refresh rate

Why?
I need a multi port monitor for non gaming, browsing, working etc. This or the qnix qx2710 mutiplr port model for £250 including customs and delivery?
