Very good price but I’ve been reading up on 144hz monitors lately and according to some, 1920x1080 isn’t really high enough resolution on a 27” panel. Anyone have any experience with this?
Is this IPS
Owned this one for 1.5 years (bought at Currys for £10 more). Pretty good monitor, one complaint I have is that it takes a good few seconds more to turn on compared to others.

I had a 1080p 27" Acer monitor for a while and it was nowhere near as bad as people make it out, however for close-up desk use it is definitely pushing that resolution to the maximum. I mainly used it for displaying games via my laptop and playing with a controller from a comfy chair at a good distance away. In this instance it was great. Next to the 17 inch screen of the laptop on the desk however the lower pixel density was definitely noticeable - if you are going to be using it as a close up desk monitor I would either recommend a slightly smaller size or a 1440p and upwards resolution at this size. Of course your perception of how good it is comes down to your experience with resolution and screen tech - I have a friend who has never had a monitor and when he got his 27 inch 1080p monitor he was absolutely blown away when others who have seen 27" 4K displays would be disappointed. But yes, if you can I would consider a different size or slightly higher resolution if you'll be sitting close.

I am no expert, but I was on a similar position to you and read the same comments. My reading suggested that 27" is on the cusp of requiring further res. And maybe more importantly, it's about how close you will be to the screen.

In the end I scimped on my monitor and got a £100 HD 27" Acer TN panel with a view to upgrading when I'd figured the situation out.

It's what I'm currently using. I think it's absolutely fine. I'm not into very fast fps gaming, and I'm looking at 32"-34" ips panels to upgrade to, as that suits my use...

Hope that's of use.

24" is the sweet spot for 1080p at your desk if you sit close, 27" would be fine if you sit back a little. This is a low price for 144hz so very little risk even if just to check it out.

22 or less is the sweet spot for 1080p, 24 is 1440p.

Look up the pixel density.
I have this monitor and I can highly recommend it. Just a point of note though - The 144Hz can only be obtained via the DVI Connection. The monitor doesn't support 144Hz through DP or HDMI 2.0b

While 27" isn't ideal at 1080p, (24" is the sweet spot) bare in mind that it takes a very strong gpu to run most games at 1440p 144hz, which in an ideal world for buttery smoothness without Free/Gsync you want 144hz to be your minimum fps in a game. This will allow you to play games with vsync on and maintain total smoothness without any tearing at all times. For many games on high+ settings even a 1080ti is unable to achieve a minimum of 144fps at 1440p.
Is this any good for a Ps4 pro?

No thanks bud
Alternatively, get the LG monitor below for only £10 more. The LG has extra features - FreeSync, strobing backlight, higher PPI and better overall IQ.

Good alternative, but worth noting it is 24", which I guess is subtely implied by the higher PPI.

The Samsung deal posted over the weekend would also be a good alternative too - 24", VA panel, curved screen.

Agree with this.

Running a Lenovo 27" 144hz right now and I'd say it is at or very just beyond the limit of 1080p. This was bought to replace a 4K 27" which my GPU (GTX1080) just couldn't run at a good enough FPS.

I use it as my PS4 monitor, it's nice and sharp and no lag or motion blur what-so-ever.
It's a shame it's not 1440p at even say 200-250. Pointless having 1080p with a 1080ti. But good for those with a graphics card it's suited too.

its not pointless you will be playing FullHD games at buttersmooth 144hz
This will be a great secondary monitor for someone who owns big 4k monitor already
does it have speakers?

Lot of rubbish. Pixels and screen size is all relevant to distance from screen. The bigger the screen the further you need to sit back. Otherwise you need to move your head to see it all. So no resolution is not too low for this size.

I game on a 55" 1080p screen with zero issues.

15 years ago we were gaming on large screens around 720p with no issues.

I would focus more on pairing screen to the right gpu.

What about 55"? You should maybe try looking at screen with your own eyes than believing everything on the Internet

Hi, would this monitor output 144hz by using a DP to DVI cable? DP from the PC, DVI into the monitor. Any help is greatly appreciated.
dose anyone have a recommendation for a same specs monitor but and IPS about the same price?

I have wondered this myself but unfortunately can't tell you as I don't have the adapter to try it out. I do seem to remember reading something about the signals not being able to be converted in that order, but don't quote me on that!
Ordered. I've been looking for for something to use until I can get a really good one. This will be great as a second monitor on i get it... Until then it'll be great for what I need.

I think it's because HDR is gaining a lot of traction in a way that manufacturer's weren't expecting and it means they need to shift inventory. It's far from a solved issue on PC monitors but there have been some decent strides.

Total pants if your gaming most of the time. My son is running a 34” 1080p 165hz G-Sync ultrawide IPS panel and it’s glorious lol and is just fine for desktop work as well.
My son was using a 24" TV as a monitor for his PS4. This now needs replaced and i dont know if another TV or a gaming monitor is th e best option. Any pointers?

Why would you use a 24" TV as a monitor for a console?

Consoles are used usually with a TV.

Do you mean he was using a 24" monitor with his ps4?

If he's serious about competitive fps then get him a 1080p monitor doesn't matter what size as long as its right for seating position.

If all he plays is immersive single player games then a TV will be best larger the better
