It's s standard, average IPS monitor. It's fine for the price, but nothing special in terms of quality of features.

Dislike the drive towards 27" monitors myself. Rarely see anyone with the desk space to make use of them.

I would hardly call it a drive, plenty of 4k screens for example on offer on smaller displays.

I would say it's a good upgrade.

Wish it was VESA mountable but even so cheap as chips for ips and this size. Of course I'm sure people will comment that 27" is too big for 1080p blah blah but each to their own.

Not CRT, freezing cold!

​Saying that, this is ebuyer we're talking about.

I currently have this THIS

Is it worth upgrading ?

27" is too big for 1080p. You'd want 1440p at that size.

No VESA no buy

Well done on having a big desk

Nope, but try dual screening if your looking for another screen. I have 3x 22" monitors, very cheap to setup but great for workflow.

Wonder if this is ok for playing dota 2? Short description says 4 ms but full spec says 6 ms?

Sam, why would a 1080p screen have hdmi 2.0 and displayport it's always uncommon in budget screens. It's also 1080p but did you notice the price?

Will be perfectly fine for that

Great Monitor , I have one of them, nice picture

Use it for gaming , no issues

Good for PS4/Xbox One I reckon.

Hi my son is after a something like this for gaming (XBox One) is it any good?

being blind as a bat and having to be sitting right in front of a monitor would a 27" with 1080p really make a difference? currently I have two monitors one ips 24" 1080p running nicely and another monitor that has poor resolution and colors are terrible on it.
Edited by: "damn7547" 6th Sep 2016

If we're talking resolution isn't it low for the screen size? I had an ancient 19" Syncmaster CRT from 2002 did 1600x1200 in 4:3 aspect...and most other decent CRTs from that era were the same!

I sympathise, I wear glasses and found with a 24" screen I was constantly craning forward to read text/forum posts etc, the 27" Asus I currently use is just right, can read everything perfectly from app. a metre from the screen. Hope this helps sway you, I wouldn't go back to a 24" for everyday usage.

​1080p looks fuzzy on big size monitor. Though the price is ok, I wish this monitor was 4k with 144 hz.

You need a free sync monitor with 144 hz to prevent tearing while gaming ​

​I had the opposite experience. The text was so big on 27 inch monitor that I looked like someone with eye problem(long sighted /short sighted) . Moving on to smaller screen solved the problem. I now use that 27 inch as a small TV. Would have bought this if it was 4k with hdmi 2.0 and displayport.

How is their return and warranty policy?

27" is too big for 1080p. You'd want 1440p at that size.



No it's not. Not everyone does.

People without actual experience of using this setup should really keep from offering comment.

Is 1440p nicer to look at than 1080p? Yes, but it's more expensive and harder for low spec hardware to draw.

Does 1080p on 24" or less look sharper? Yes, but you need to sit closer to it.

I like my 27" 1080p monitor. No I'm not going to claim that sat close to it the pixels are indefinable, but it's nice to sit back watching a video or play games on. And once you get past a certain distance, use folks without super human vision can't tell the difference between 1080, 1440 or 2160p frankly.

Would I recommend this for a professional or enthusiast? No, but then the resolution is going to be less a factor than it's colour accuracy.

Would I recommend this as say a second monitor, or for someone who just wants to play some games, watch some media at a comfortable distance or maybe even for someone a bit older who wants less eyestrain reading text? Absolutely.

1440p and 4k monitors a sufficiently more expensive than these types of display that there are plenty of circumstances where people are happier with this and the money in their pocket than a higher def display.

I don't know why people put down offers when they are good deals for other people ?

If it's not the right hz it's the ms !! If it's not the ms it's the resolution !! If it's not the resolution it's the screen size !! Too many fussy people. Heat to the op for finding it,

Based on what exactly?


Out of stock

1440p on a 27" is more ideal. had a similar model and it looked pixelated.

If it had a headphone out, I'd have nabbed one.

I'm not sure what point you're trying to make here. You're expecting 4K/144Hz at this price point? If that's what you're trying to imply, are you feeling okay in the head m8?

And no you don't need such a high spec monitor to game without tearing on a console where you'd be lucky to even get a rock solid 60fps. And also, did it not occur to you that consoles do not even support freesync?
