Dropped another tenner, if you've not go the hardware to drive a 1440p+ res monitor at a satisfactory FPS (For you) then this could fit the bill if you're looking for a 27" monitor. I know lots of folks will likely go "This size?, go for 1440p" Which I agree with for the most part, I guess it depends on what system you're using though. £139.97 seems pretty good right now.

Peeps normally say that it's better to buy a TV than a monitor methinks


The ratio of stupid people to intelligent people in this world is unfairly weighted in favour of the stupid.
I will continue to use and play at 1080p until mainstream affordable GPUs can easily run games at 1440p144fps. The anti 1080p brigade, usually consist of 5% rich ppl who can afford multi top end GPU systems, and 95% elitist Wannabees who also game at 1080p on moderate hardware but like to join in on the hate to seem cool to the 5%
Don't do it, folks.

This panel sort-of makes sense if you're broke, need something big, and don't care about image quality or high refresh rates. If you need something with decent image quality (either in terms of colour reproduction, viewing angles, or pixel density), aim for 1440p or IPS, or preferably both. If you want it for gaming, you'll really want 144Hz, too.


It doesn't make sense to spend £140 upgrading to a monitor only as low-end as this. If you're looking for an upgrade, pay a bit more and get something that's actually going to be a marked improvement over what you currently have.

Wow great price for a 27" monitor. I eagerly await all the anti 1920x1080 comments but some of us do like larger screens with this resolution.

We use this monitor at work for web design (small company) and it's brilliant. Director has a 4K set up though!
I've got the GF276 which must be the older model? Very happy with it for gaming, mines 75htz and freesync.
You know it's not necessary for 1440p monitors to be that expensive, check out dell ultrasharp u2515h its the one I have and I run a four year old gpu and I can play witcher on medium/high settings at 60fps. This is however a good deal.

I'm not anti 1080p at all, because that's how I game. What I'm against are large displays that at only 1080p, they look really crap.

If you want to game at a desk (which is what 30 inches and lower is best for) then stick to 19-22 inch or smaller for 1080p, then go up to 1440p for 24-27 inch, above 27? You're gonna want 4K. People will argue that this display is fine if you sit further away, but you won't because it's too small for that.

Ignore the morons. Get what ever monitor you want. I've used a 27" 1080p screen as my main monitor for ages. Bigger size means you can be further back without loosing quality. 2nd screen is same res 47" for games and films/tv shows. Good comfy set up.
27" is too big for 1080p. My old office had some, and text was blurry and undefined. My eyes would hurt after a few minutes.

Also £140 is pretty expensive for a monitor. Cold.

I use a BenQ 27" 1080p 144hz monitor and it's bloody brilliant. Crystal sharp, and I can play almost every FPS game I have at 144fps on max settings at that resolution.

As soon as I notch to 1440p using say Nvidia DSR, my frame rate plummets, and removes the benefit I get from playing at 144fps. This is all using a 980ti which is not a mid range card.

Even things like the 1080/1080ti struggle to hold 144fps at 1440p so tbh, 90% of the gaming population will disagree with you.

1440p is a luxury, 144fps for me, is a necessity.

And I ain't about to spend 800 on a Predator, and 1200 on 2x GTX1080's to drive it.

Have a think about what you are proposing so naively.

Well you're forgetting something, which is choice. I don't really care about 144Hz (60Hz is fine for me), what I care about is image quality and sharpness.

That's the best thing about PC Gaming right? We have a choice.

If you play 3rd person games or racing games then 60hz is fine. But for FPS games 144hz is a game changer, resolution adds a little sharpness, but that extra response and speed makes all the difference in CoD, Siege, CSGO etc.

You either love 144hz or haven't tried it yet

Not exactly! 27" FHD screens have come down a LOT in the last couple of years.

The superior K272HLbid with VA panel (which actually looks nice) has been £120 a couple of times and £115 once at ebuyer.

In fact, hell no - you can have a 28" BenQ with a VA panel for the same price. Go buy this instead:

A bit late to the party here guys, but I must say, 144hz is sublime. I am an FPS player also, and I can't stand seeing those cursor trails when having a monitor set at anything below 100hz. It's disgusting.

Speed > all.

I am looking for 27 inch monitors for an office environment. We run Windows 7 only. Is this suitable, or are there better cheaper alternatives?

No gaming will be done, just office documents.
