Go for 1444p it's 2017 1080p sucks


Well you can't really go for 1444p because it doesn't exist.

For all those saying you need 1440p, blah, blah.

This is a 144hz monitor with gsync, a surprisingly cheap 144hz monitor at that. The majority that are looking for a 144hz monitor do not care for a higher resolution than 1080p, regardless of screen size. In fact a higher resolution would hinder their frame rate significantly.

Still not even opened mine from last time. Sigh. The life of HUKD user.

It's probably great though... if it's not an empty box & even works that is. Whatever, I'll find out someday

Just a shame its 1080p at 27", I wont vote on this but I find 1440p to be a better match on 27" for a good dot pitch.

Bought this last time out and can confirm for the price it's an absolute steal.

Love my 65C1GAC1UK, but I got one which has a red evil eye stuck pixel at the top-middle of the screen that stares into my soul....Tried every remedy known to man to try to fix it.

I've opened a ticket with Lenovo..not really been at home this week, but apparently it's a 3 Year On Site Warranty, with replacement by courier if applicable. Still a pain but hopefully it'll get sorted quickly.

Edit: Weirdly, their ebay page is still £321.97 ebay.co.uk/itm…918

They had recent-ish ebay feedback that had this 65BEGAC1UK version even cheaper: "Lenovo 27" Y27g VA Full HD 144Hz G-Sync 4ms Curved Gaming Monitor 65BEGAC1UK (#132349111918) £227.97" but I'd still happily purchase at this price.

Oh, and the 65C1GAC1UK is the Razer Edition version - though I wouldn't complain about ending up with either variant as I don't have Razer-anything

I just signed up to this to say I bought this monitor before it was put up on this sight I regularly checked this site (every morning and every night) to find a good monitor to compliment my gtx 1060 6gb. For me, a monitor like this is ideal. 1440p isn’t really good with the gtx 1060, and I’m someone who’s come from the laggiest labtop that you can’t play any games on with a resolution of 1366×768. I chose the free delivery and I’m really going to be finally enjoying my pc after waiting 2 months for a good deal. The two days whoever ironic it seems that I wasn’t on this website checking for deals were when the 1st and 2nd wave of this monitor were on sale. So unlucky

Which is a better match depends on how far away you sit. This would be fine for me and I'd want 32" at a minimum for QHD, 2560x1440 is too much for a 27" at ~90cm.

at first glance this is good...
but the reality is.... you need 1440p this is the new standard and some like me have been there for a long long long time.

Would waste your money on this...

Hmmm, I sit about 50-55cm from my 1440p monitor and its no issue at all. 90cm seems a fair bit back but I understand what your saying.

I agree with you especially since it's becoming easier and easier to push 1440p these days. Even when I had a 1070, I could use a downscaling back to 1440p on most big games and still maintain over 60 fps.

I somewhat agree but at this moment of time this is the cheapest 144hz G Sync. There are plenty of other good deals but not G Sync.

1440p will never be a 'standard'. It's gonna go from 1080p to 4k. Hardly anything outside of PC games utilize 1440p resolutions.

Either way, you need at least a 980Ti/1070 if you want to be able to play modern, demanding games at 1440p/60fps and decent settings.

And nobody 'needs' 1440p. I'm sticking with 1080p til 4k gaming is feasible on a mid range GPU. There's gonna be a lot more support for 4k media in the future.

Completely wrong. It's now becoming the benchmark for PC gamers in the first world and the PS4 Pro frequently makes use of 1440p. In fact far more PS4 Pro games seem to use 1440p than use native 4k. The only difference is that the 1440p is then upscaled on the PlayStation whereas PC monitors display it natively.

It's not remotely close to being the new standard.

And sure, some PS4 Pro games are using 1440p(though most are not). But the PS4 doesn't have an option to output at 1440p, so it doesn't really matter here. PS4 Pro is a niche, enthusiast console, targeted at users of 4k TV's either way. Further proving this isn't some 'standard'. TV's will dictate what the new display standard for media will be an that will be 4k. Next-gen consoles will not be '1440p machines'. They will be 4k machines.

Dont worry, you dont have to feel bad about using 1440p yourself. It's not an attack on you or anyone who uses it. It's fine so long as you accept that it's only really good for PC gaming and that it will never get widespread media support. 4k is gonna be the next standard after 1080p. It's already happening and it's best to just accept it.

And like I said, you need a higher end GPU to really make use of 1440p gaming properly just to do 60fps. Some people might prefer to make use of what GPU power they have for higher framerates rather than higher resolutions. It's a perfectly valid choice.

I think you're making a mistake. The majority of Steam users aren't in 'first world' countries. They're in the likes of Russia, Eastern Europe, Brazil, India, China etc. Also I didn't say that most people have 1440p right now, I said that's the benchmark that a lot of reviewers are using given the current level of GPU hardware.

Personally I think 4K is a marketing buzzword right now and a total waste of time. The current generation of consoles are nowhere near capable of pushing it properly, even the Xbox One X and to achieve proper 4K on a PC requires some serious hardware. 2K offers a nice middle ground and that's why most PS4 Pro editions of games use it. The majority of PS4 Pro games render somewhere between 1200p and 1600p and then checkerboard upscale to 4K.

Having had a 27" 1080p and 1440p monitor I can say that it is not too much. The difference in clarity and crispness is very apparent moving to 1440p.

Dalkirst3 h, 14 m ago

Well I never must give you headaches etc?


If I move my (24") monitor back further it'd fall off my desk and if I sat any further back I wouldn't be able to reach my mouse and keyboard. My desk is only 60cm deep. And no it doesn't give me headaches. I wouldn't want to sit further from my screen even if I could cause it'd make everything look smaller.

I accidentally voted it cold as I went to open it in the app. After checking out the link and finding it is only 1080p, I feel a bit better about it. The rest of the specs are excellent, but dpi-wise 1080p @ 27" is simply too low.

Very nice find + heat, at this price and with gsync is a steal, this will be my first experience with 144hz (going from 75hz on LG 25" Ultrawide) so excited for that. I primarily play Overwatch and have no interest in anything over 1080p right now.

You'll love it for FPS games. I went from playing R6 Siege on a PS4 at 60FPS to PC at 144fps with a similar monitor and it's a huge step up. Really responsive to play, feels like there's absolutely zero input lag when playing.

1440p is a new benchmark, but 2160p is a buzzword? It's just another resolution, just like 1440p. And frankly, a far more significant resolution given that it WILL be the new standard, whether you want to acknowledge it or not. Nothing supports native 1440p output except PC gaming. Yet 4k is *clearly* being adopted by almost every media format and is a far more significant jump in resolution than 1440p.

Whatever man. You dont know what you're talking about. 1440p is used in benchmarks for high end GPU reviews because 1080p is more likely to introduce CPU bottlenecks when you have that much graphics horsepower, ruining the comparison.

Stay blind.

At what point did I ever say that it did?

That has caused more harm than good though because it means that most PS4 Pro games (and likely the majority of XOX games going forward) need to be upscaled.

And if I was blind then I probably wouldn't be interested in any of this stuff in the first place.

Now have my PC setup with this monitor deal and it looks beautiful! A tiny un-noticable bit of back light bleed unless looking from sides on a black screen. A bit of flickering that I've already gotten used to, I highly recommend this monitor! Some people may have more severe back light bleeding, but I've been really lucky! I find the curved screen really immersive!

This is on their ebay page as well for £269.97 (I got it within a day - ordered before I realised that Laptopdirect was slightly cheaper - but I wonder if their main site uses slower ship options?) ebay.co.uk/itm…918

Was around £40 cheaper a few weeks back, though
