Nice monitor feature wise, If you're not going for a 1440p or 4K model and are happy at 1080p, It has G-sync, a 144Hz refresh rate and a 1ms response time. I don't think I need to say, but just in case you're not sure... it's not an IPS panel (I wish it was :D)

It's been a little while since we've seen it drop down, They are usually closer to £400. Defo one for the shortlist if you're in the market for a new monitor.

Think it depends who you are really. I mean, I have some that are fine at 1080p and some lower end ones that don't seem quite as good. Sadly it's such a trade off, half of the time. 1440p would be amazing on this, but the price would be much higher. Reviews are good though. Maybe check out some video reviews if you're considering it

Not seen that one? 27" 4k 144hz? Although there's more to consider when buying a monitor, as I'm sure you're aware. If you don't have the GPU to drive such a high end monitor, you end up having to downscale the image and it often hinders the quality. You end up under utilising the hardware totally.

If you're looking for something to bang out the frames and are happy at 1080p (As a huge proportion of the gaming community are) Then this is worth considering. Do you have a link to that monitor at all? Sounds decent!

I know we're awaiting for Acer to release price info on a new 4k 144Hz model though

therein lies the difference. some people want 4k, some people want 144hz.

Be careful about returns policy. So many monitors with dead pixels (within iso standards) shipping these days.

If this was IPS I'd consider it. No way am I paying 350 for a monitor I'd only like to use for gaming, especially being only 1080p (despite the fact that I game alot). Not voting hot or cold but I'm intrigued as to whether something like this is genuinely popular (at this price point).

The lack of FHD IPS 144hz monitors is annoying, I don't wanna have to pay £6-700 for a 4k@60hz/ 1440p@144hz monitor and have to pay another £6-700 on top to have a GPU strong enough to drive it (I currently run a GTX 970). I feel like I have no reasonable upgrade atm from a 1080p IPS panel without spending stupid money.

In the market for a monitor but would like a 1440p , is g sync really worth it as there are a number of dell monitors that seem to fit the bill.

What would people recommend?

the people that want 4k are computer illetrate, 28 inch is not made for 4k, more like 40 inches

people want 4k without understating at that size its not best option

I wouldn't go less than 2560x1440 on 27". I ordered the Dell S2417DG 24" 1440p, Gsync, 165hz today for £331

I paid £50 more than this for the 1440p version of this monitor from Amazon warehouse. Also the picture at the bottom of this post is not this monitor as the aspect ratio is way off.

I've just returned this monitor to Amazon as I was really disappointed in it. It's the first time I've owned a 1080p panel in a long time and I just find 1080p completely lacking. Maybe that's because I've been using 4K for a few months but I struggle to understand how anybody can be happy with such a small resolution.

If you're willing to spend £350 on a monitor, I'd recommend trying to find a good deal on a 1440p 144hz panel, even if it costs extra, it's an absolutely day/night difference when it comes to quality. Personally, I believe that 1440p is the sweet spot for gaming and current GPU's thrive at the resolution.

Voted hot for the deal/price though.

edit: No idea why people don't like TN panels - if you buy a decent high quality TN panel (such as this monitor), you won't see much difference compared to IPS. Most people sit directly in front of monitors and won't notice any color shifting due to viewing angles.

Agreed with the 1440p 144hz bit.

If you can shell out £350 for a 1080p 144hz monitor, just put in £80-£100 more and get a 1440p 144hz monitor, difference is really night and day, its the definition of hybrid perfection.

Also I have the BenQ xl2730z and its a TN, but I honestly cant tell the difference in color quality compared to my 4k BenQ right next to it.

Only reason to purchase this monitor at £350 is for the G-Sync Nvidia tax. Good 1080p 144hz monitors can be found from £200-£250, just no G-Sync, most will come with freesync however;).

Probably your on about a 4k (60hz) panel, thats a apples to peaches comparison.
