[Edit: Not suitable for gaming]

A 1440p monitor under £200 with VESA mount.

I'm not sure whether to go for this with its VESA mount, or the Acer one for £230 and much thinner bezel.

Edit: Here's a review:

expertreviews.co.uk/acc…iew

Most salient point I could see are:

"There is a slight issue with this monitor's input lag time; we measured it at 38ms, which is on the high side especially if you're planning on playing games."

You might want to investigate further before buying for gaming.

​Thanks - I've added that to the title.

If anyone's got views on this verses the Acer G277HU I posted (and which got good heat at £230) I'd love to hear about them

Not sure how relevant that is? IPS panels are significantly more expensive. Unless you really need the superior colour reproduction, a cheaper tn will still do a good job. great deal but a bit wierd that the input lag is so high being a tn panel.

Its 1ms isn't it that as low as you can get ?

​I wonder if you are confusing input lag with panel response. Input lag is the time taken for the signal to be processed and displayed, which would depend greatly on the signal processor chip not the lcd panel type. The lcd panel type affects the black to white, or grey to grey, response time of the pixels.

1ms is the GTG performance, not the input processing performance.

Sorry, GTG, BRB

I'm not sure why you've pointed out that this isnt suitable for gaming. Its a good size & Res. My experience of AOC has been good, their screens always seem to have more 'life' to them then other brands.

Unless you're "pro" gaming then response isn't going to matter too much but for racing & sports games i imagine the blur could only be a very small problem, which is only usually noticed by people who have had more expensive monitors before.

Voted hot.

It's nothing to do with response time / blur. The input delay is high for a screen to be used for gaming, when compared to others on the market. It's an entirely separate measurement to response time.

OK thanks, that makes a lot of sense, as the processor chip is probably an area where costs are likely have been cut in order to achieve a target budget.

Either way, I would still say this looks a decent buy and I'm tempted. I wonder what the real world affect the lag would have on the average gamer compared to playing on a TV. Obviously the lag might be a problem for serious gamers but I suppose they should be looking at spending £300+ on a 27"

how does this compare to dell u2715h?

The Dell is a very good screen. Depends what you're using it for though I guess, but for me, I'd go with the Dell.

​The Dell got heat on here when priced at £376. It's surely better, but it might have competition from other monitors in its price bracket.

It doesn't really, the Dell is significantly better.
