Got interested but no VESA mount.. Deal breaker for me as i need to mount one.
All ASUS Monitor Discounts, Offers and Sale - August 2020
Fair enough, the 27GL83A is a similar price and a good alternative so you wouldn't really be disappointed with it.
Hi mate thanks so much for taking the time to respond! I've had my eye on the ViewSonic as I've seen some glowing reviews on it but couldn't find it anywhere in stock. I've shot myself in the foot a bit with Amazon as I chose refund to Amazon account to be able to order something quicker (fierce) - I use the monitor for work so I thought I'd order something quickly. I haven't considered BenQ as this is a bit out of my price range, but I heard good things about their eyecare tech. I spend about 9h a day in front of a monitor so it makes sense to spend a bit more. Thanks for the food for thought. (y)
The 27GL83A uses the previous last gen of IPS panles from LG, the 27GL850 uses a newer nano IPS. The main difference is pixel response time and some improved colour reprooduction and such, but not a huge difference. Also look into the Pixio PX7 (currently out of stock on Amazon) or the Viewsonic VX2758-2KP-MHD. They both use the same panel, also used in the Aorus AD27QD. Viewsonic: https://www.alza.co.uk/27-viewsonic-vx2758-2kp-mhd-gaming-d5712976.htm Another decent option is the BenQ EX2780Q which is also an IPS panel. Currently about £375 on Amazon Germany (£414 on UK site). https://www.amazon.de/dp/B07X8HBHJP/
Hi guys. I've been looking for something decent in the £350 mark. LG Ultragear 27GL83A-B is on offer on amazon for around £380. I know this is a sort of less bright version of 27GL850. Has anyone had any experience with that monitor and could share? I recently went from Aoc 27g2u which developed dead pixels to LG 27UK650 which had a bad case of light bleed and finally decided that I'd get 1440p 144hz, hence my question. As you can see I can't make up my mind about what I want lol
I own this, it’s pretty good but has never worked properly over 144hz (bugs out and needs rebooting).
I presume you work for Amazon? I have purchased multiple items from Currys over the years and have always found their customer service very good.
It doesn't have VESA mount. So you can't take the monitor off it's stand and fix it to a wall or monitor arms clamped to desk. Still a decent monitor for the money if you're not planning on mounting it anywhere.
Looking at the pictures of the back it seems it's not.
It vesa compatible?
Don't buy anything from Amazon, dreadful customer service, especially with recent Redmi Note joke. Aggressive UK tax avoidance. I'd rather support a company who supports the economy fairly
Yeh I've got decent setup not amazing like just a Ryzen and Vega 56 but I'm happy with my cheap 1440p 144hz panel. Games look good enough for me!
Just premium stuff man. Check out lims cave, the monitor is supposedly dope. I've got a £140 electriq one and its great for me, but premium stuff is expensive, and usually better.
Yeh the HSU is the 1080p. I wasn't aware it's TN panel but I briefly used the panel and I thought the picture was great on it.
That one is 1080p and a TN panel, so not comparable to this deal. Edit: actually it's 1440p, apologies, Google lying to me. It is still a TN panel, however.
iiyama GB2760QSU gets my vote if your happy to spend around the £275 mark. If you want cheaper try find the EG 1440p 144hz (ebuyer brand) monitor instead. They regularly go for around £200 mark but the stand is poor and needs replacing with an adjustable VESA mount.
Saw gaming monitor and hoped it was 144hz 😔
28” 60hz 1ms, say no more (lol) , the good one 27” 144hz 1ms is £489.00 lol
At this price? I'd be floored if it wasn't.
Good monitor. Bought the 27" about two years ago, cost me £180.
This one or the HP 24fw. Mainly office use. Thanks
"Frameless" Whats that black thing around the 4 sides holding the panel in?!! XD
Dell monitor from Very is by far superior than this model. https://www.very.co.uk/dell-se2219h-215-inch-full-hd-ips-thin-bezel-widescreen-led-monitor-3-year-warranty-black/1600319300.prd?_requestid=871544&Ntt=dell%20monitor
Sort of agree, RPG's or slower paced games it'll be fine for, but any sort of fast FPS (Doom etc.) it'll be a huge detriment. And for me the sweet spot resolution is 1440.
I suppose you can justify it as a gaming monitor with its response time. Not all games are competitive FPS. This would be fine for an RPG for example
Nothing wrong with the monitor but 75hz, TN, 1080p for this price isn't a good deal, would say it's overpriced really, same spec monitors at 24' drop to £80 and 144hz even £100-110. Asus tax
If its not 144Hz or higher,its not a gaming monitor. Cold.
What cable do you need for this to work with hd ? This one ?? https://www.amazon.co.uk/AmazonBasics-Adapter-Cable-Latest-Standard-Black/dp/B014I8UU2W/ref=asc_df_B014I8UU2W/?tag=googshopuk-21&linkCode=df0&hvadid=205215094696&hvpos=1o2&hvnetw=g&hvrand=6274106891662613072&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=m&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9045499&hvtargid=pla-330352499230&psc=1
Ahhh triga my son today’s your lucky day Yeah and why’s that All in good time trigger all in good time Now remember that old sweeping brush you’ve ad for all these years Yeah Well mike needed a paintin brush What’s that got to do with my sweeping brush?
Oi mike fancy a flat screen tv straight from the capital of France, you know what they say Belgium TVs are built to last ey rodders
why would u pay that sort of money and not even have 240Hz
Not quite sure why anyone would choose this over the vastly superior LG 27GL850-B. Cold.
Extremely overpriced and has an awful grainy coating.
Better off with an XB271HU
165hz monitor with TN panel...
Below average monitor, uses PWM for dimming, avoid at all costs.
I like how you said solid 😏 and thank you. I'm new to pc gaming deals and very much trying to dig out good deals for people. Prior to black friday/cyber Monday if someone is desperate this seems like a reasonable deal. Some may say solid. Thanks for taking the time to comment :)
No idea why this is cold, it’s a solid price for an esports monitor. I would personally pay extra for a VA panel from Samsung/MSI but this is still decent.
Probably Cold cause you get this for over 50 cheaper https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/lenovo-d24f-10-236-inch-fhd-freesync-144hz-1ms-gaming-monitor-10999-at-lenovo-3-years-warranty-3323953
(lol) I see you've reached a certain level of adulthood as to judge people on one word. Very mature.
Paid 450 for this last year on very, 500 but was given 50 off for using credit plan or something..
278 is still fantastic if calibrated vaguely correctly
Thank you for your advice..
Just to note, I wouldn't go looking for this issue, if you don't notice it in everyday use, you're probably fine. IPS will always be affected by IPS glow, it's subjective as to whether it's too much or not. Also depends on what kind of environment you play in. In a light room, you may not notice anything at all but if you play in a darker room, you're likely to notice it more.
So close to Black Friday now you may as well wait.
Very tempted as I'm in need of a new monitor and this ticks all the boxes, but not sure whether to wait until Black Friday.
TN panel. No thanks.
I think if this is open box or used it should be clear in title (confused) Just a suggestion. No vote either way.
That is precisely why I avoided an open box monitor. I can't decide between a 27-28 4k monitor or 1080P / 1440P monitor, or maybe a 34 ultrawide. I only use it for occasional browsing and occasional PS4 pro / Xbox One X gaming (already have a 65 OLED). Going round in circles deliberating over whether I should spend £100 on a 1080P or £250 on a 27 4k, or £300 plus on the ultrawide (which would be great instead of my old dual screen setup but odd if using a console).
Great - thanks OP
these are 60hz right? Open box A grade, does that mean they are more likely to have been returned with dead pixels?
Garbage review without the use of a colorimeter, meaning it was entirely based on the reviewer's interpretation. I'm going by actual measurements, not somebody's poor interpretation.
https://uk.ign.com/articles/2017/01/24/asus-vg248qe-gaming-monitor-review?amp=1 This one says otherwise
Not an opinion, the monitor is objectively bad. Take a look at this review. This is one of the newer revisions (older VG248QE's were even worse). Low contrast ratio (<700:1) and use of PWM dimming alone make this monitor below average.
Your opinion but I like the monitor.
Far from excellent, below average at best given the use of PWM for backlight dimming.
only has 1.4 HDMI ports
Ahh shame - also please try plugging a phono lead in to the phono port which completely removes the onboard audio alltogether if you haven't already.
One of the first things I have tried - no luck. Thanks for your suggestion though
I had this issue with an Acer panel once - try muting the volume if it has volume controls - cleared it up for me!
60 htz bit old hat noticed a few saying they bought it a few years back enough said
300 cd/㎡ Brightness Normal monitors go 400cd/m, for some reason ultrawide only 300cd/m. Seems a little odd as you would need extra light to provide great blacks? (confused)
The Asus is now really old the Acer x34p is a newer panel with 120hz
Price is too high for what is an old monitor these days. Better off going with the X34P or Alienware alternative which have improved refresh rate ranges and can regularly be had at this price.
I have this monitor and it's great for gaming/productivity and watching movies in 21:9 ratio.
I have the x34p. Why is it better, thinking of a second one...
Does have freesync?
Great monitor for the price, just wish it had vesa mount.
Lol????? U have a tv for that son
How would this fair with video playback like netflix and you...tube?
That's my problem they are so much worse for just about anything other than gaming.
Anyone know of a quality flat 24" 144hz monitor that is also good for photo work as well as gaming, have to use two monitors at the moment, need to downsize my desk area?
I really don't like TN personally. Washed out compared to VA and IPS.
