They phrased it that way cause the headset is £50 at its lowest online right now. £70 on amazon.

The deal makes sense if someone was in the market for a new monitor and headset, or if someone wants one item and feels like selling the other.

I got this deal a few weeks ago and the headset included is the lite version (non 7.1 Virtual Surround) £49.99 on Amazon atm amazon.co.uk/ASU…V39 It's still a good deal as my son needs a monitor and a headset
I'd wait and get an AOC one for probably £30 less..

Smaller size (3"), higher refresh rate(144hz - which is actually good), no free headset, £30 more... Why are you recommending this on this thread exactly?
Edited by: "Gertrudes_Cat" 12th Nov
Does anybody wish to offer me monitor advice.

Previous setup: Dual 24" 1080P business Asus models. (I no longer have the room for dual screen)

Requirements: A bit of browsing, very little software work (don't work from home), and a bit of XBOX ONE X / PS4 Pro (I have a 65" OLED so not really required).

Budget: Probably £300 odd.

Options:

A) 34" Ultrawide: Like the idea of wider version of 27" after losing dual screen. Don't like the idea of awkward resolution / stretch for XBOX / PS4. Also more £££ at approx £300. Curved even more expensive, but allegedly useful for this size.
B) 27" 4K monitor. Like the native 4K for occasional gaming. However will have to scale up Windows as I don't like small font. Probably £250
C) 27" 1440P .. half way house between 4K and 1080P and should look good for general usage, but not native for gaming.
D) 27" 1080P.. can pick up a basic one for £100. Will do the job of occasional gaming / browsing / work... but not excelling at anything.

My head goes round in circles deciding this.

Any suggestions welcome

I have the EXACT same internal debate. I would go option C @ 144Hz perhaps? I'm waiting for black Friday to see what I can nab in that category.

First world problems eh. I don't game on PC though so 60Hz is possibly all I need.

Really does depend then mate, if youve got the money to burn choose option B. But you aren't using it an awful lot so if you want to be more economical option C.

I've ignored curved out of personal preference, I simply dont like them.

Cheers. I would curve my ultrawide if it wasn't £500 plus just because of the width.
The closer I get to black friday the closer I am to pulling the trigger on whichever top deal comes up.

Seems sensible. I have been looking at novatech.co.uk/pro…tml which is the newer version of the UK but without the adjustable stand.

The LG has better reviews but is it worth £50.

I'm not sure if 75hz can be called a gaming monitor these days really, at least not in my mind. But hey-ho, "Gaming" =a picture of a moving cartoon vehicle or a firing gun if you go by marketing terms.
27". IPS. 1ms. £159.99.


Does not compute.

Fairly standard tech these days, it's 1080p and 75hz though so nothing too special. The headset is a nice bonus to chuck on Gumtree though!
75hz at 2019 cannot be called a 'gaming' monitor
144hz is standard for gaming today

this is not a deal
Thanks for posting, we have added this to the Highlight pages
Ah yes, 1ms is critical when the maximum possible response of a human body is 180ms and almost every human averages 300ms.

Keep buying those 1ms hyper-priced gaming items. Right up there with gold audio cables and £75 HDMI cables.
27" you really need 1440p or above and for gaming, 144hz or above.

Do yourself a favour and save for those specs.

Actually, it all adds up to the latency chain from movement to photons, also it helps A LOT with ghosting.

I had two comments on this but I’m still totally confused, so if anyone can offer input I would be grateful.
I keep reading contradicting things so no matter what research I do I feel no wiser! We have decided to wait for Black Friday though as budget is around £150 so hoping we can get something decent for that
75Hz... For fast paced gaming I'd recommend at least 144Hz. Good price though

Blurry image during fast movement has nothing to do with your body response time.

Yes, panel refresh time is responsible for motion blur, you're clearly trying to prove a point here while not knowing what you're talking about.

If you can't see a difference between 1ms and 10+ms panel transition time, then perhaps you should've gone to specsavers.

I replied in your thread.
Isn't the response rates the time. It goes black to white if I remember right?
Bought this monitor from Ebuyer for 139.99 while ago.
For the price its ok. But I could I would add extra 40-50 pounds and buy Samsung.

This is not 1ms monitor - Its 5ms and 75 Hz.


3 things that I Dont like in this monitor -
1. Squeaky base - even with a light touch it makes squeaky sound. assembly
2. The Turn off button is located to close to menu buttons.
3. Had to calibrate this monitor many times.


Would recommend this monitor only if the price is very low on it.

Neither can you. It is biologically impossible. People will eat up any old nonsense when it comes to gaming.

Trying to compare it to an absurd example won't change it. I know fine and well how a digital transmission over HDMI works. I haven't been studying electronics engineering for 5 years for nothing, perhaps that's why I don't confuse reaction time with panel refresh rates.

People are biologically capable of seeing motion blur on slow panels since the early LCD screens and laptops, pretty much unusable for anything but static text. I'm really sorry about your eyesight.
