I can't even mount one above my monitor due to wall shelving so I basically bought the best 4k monitor I could afford which was the Acer Predator XB281HK. It's a great monitor for my needs.


You do right. If I hadn't the space I'd do the same!. Fortunately my desk is large and I've also mounted my monitor so even more desk real estate

I play racers and rpgs pretty much exclusively so 60fps is perfectly fine. Besides my monitor is not 144hz but it is a 4k gsync so it's perfectly serviceable.


I guess you can't miss what you've never had. If you ever played on a 144hz monitor and went back to anything less you'd notice. At least I have noticed. 100hz 4k would be just about fine but I could never push myself to buy anything less than 144hz again.

There are currently no 4k 144hz monitors available so purchasing a 4k monitor is rather pointless for the next 1-2 years until volta and appropriate displays are released.

You convinced me. I agree with you on this one

And that's fine, that's preference. A lot of people also prefer 144hz displays and are happy to have a lower resolution as it makes maintaining a high FPS easier on lower tier GPUs.

gone, gutted. Great bargain!
I’ve done the same with a 32” tv. Built a wooden picture frame around it to make it look more like a picture frame than a tv! Using a raspberry PI to connect to my onedrive account via Kodi. Got the tv connect to my smart home movement sensor so when we enter the room the tv turns on with the pi and starts showing photos after 20seconds. When we leave room it turns everything off automatically after 5mins.
Thanks for the info mugen6

I bought one of the Dell monitors you posted

I'm going to have a go at making a photo frame/slideshow with it so display my photos.

Theory...
Chromecast 2 in the rear via a dvi to hdmi connector.
USB from the monitor will provide the chromecast with power.

Point the chromecast at personal Gmail photo album so that when it goes into sleep/standby it will display selected album.

Monitor is only 20w when on and chromecast is negligible on power draw.

Just one question if I was to put the monitor on a plug timer would the monitor come back to life or would it sit in standby ?

Bought one of these early last year (from CCL) but returned it due to severe backlight bleeding. It was £80 back then and the picture was quite good considering the cost and you wouldn't expect accurate colours for a TN panel anyway. I would've kept it if it weren't for the backlight bleed. I'll say it again, it's really a lottery when it comes to buying monitors.

I think that VA, IPS and TN, as well at the subsets of some of the three types, all have their limitations.
It depends which you can live with and your needs.

My BenQ 27" 1440p IPS designer monitor is particularly good. Hardly no glow at all and is colour reproduction and uniformity is great.
When I tried a Samsung £800 34" VA panel I returned that for various reasons but I was not that impressed with the colour reproduction and shift across the screen. The black crush and slight smearing was also not good. Perhaps I expected better when paying that sort of money tho.
In the end I kept my 27" BenQ as my primary and got a 25" Dell 1440p IPS as my secondary monitor.
I did find that a 24" at 1080p to be a little blurry by comparison.

Even with its limitations and issues if you win the panel lottery then I'm happy enough with an IPS panel.

Each to their own.

Yes, the aoc 32" i recommend does exhibit a bit of ghosting but i find it pretty easy to ignore once i get used to it. Contrast does more than make up for it, never seen such good blacks on a screen, none of the shades of gray a lot of panels suffer with.

Guess there is always a trade off...

This is double the refresh rate. Maybe overall it's better value but it deosn't mean it's better then a different monitor offering different specifications at a cheaper price. That other monitor seems to have ghosting too, which is a put off.

They tend to be labelled 'gaming' monitors if they have low response times (ms). I believe this is something to do with the length of time taken for a pixel to change in the display so the lower the ms, the better for gaming.
Much better choice for £115

Can you point to a similar Gsync monitor at this price?

Considering the Gsync tech itself has a price premium of around £150-£200 excluding monitor itself, some people are idiots for saying "there's no Gsync" on a monitor at this price bracket lol
Aha, was wondering how this could be. I got my LG 29UM68 for 250 quid, but it is a 21:9 ratio (2560x1080 res), this is still 1920x1080 res. I wonder how it looks, you must have to be quite a bit away from it.
32 inch and 1080p? Alright for console gaming I suppose.

freesync = amd, or am i wrong?


As a technology, yes you're incorrect.

I'm not sure about freesync over HDMI but AMD pushed to have the tech included in the DisplayPort spec instead of developing their own specific technology. 'Freesync' on a normal monitor is just an AMD marketing initiative for the DisplayPort feature called Adaptive Sync.

In fact, nVidia uses that technology on their 'g-sync' laptops so even nVidia supports freesync. They're just not enabling it for desktop cards. Presumably because not enough is being done to publicise the extra cost of g-sync so their cards are still selling well (and they get a cut of sales from g-sync monitors).

They'll probably enable it a couple of years down the line when HDR and/or low persistance displays become the next big thing.
EndlessWaves23 h, 38 m ago

Yeah, the default choice should be a monitor with variable refresh rate …Yeah, the default choice should be a monitor with variable refresh rate support ('Freesync') if you're using it for gaming. Even if your current machine doesn't support it then your next one will. That would be an AOC G2460VQ6 or similar at this price.


freesync = amd, or am i wrong?
A 60hz monitor is fine for those casual gamers who don't have a beefy GPU that can pump an average of more than 60fps for the latest games to their screen let alone resolutions above 1080p.
I believe that If you're a simply a gamer you wouldn't be pressed for colour accuracy (unless it's a super fast-paced game that involves recognising colours across a huge colour palette) nor would you be sitting and gaming at a non-direct angle to the monitor.
I personally can see plenty of ghosting in IPS monitors, be it at their lowest 4 ms (at time of writing), and if I were a highly competitive gamer, I'd still take less ghosting over colour accuracy.

Conversely, if you're a casual gamer on a low budget (who could care less about ghosting), frequently editing photos or creating art or simply watches movies a lot of movies from your PC then you could say that a cheap IPS panel is more ideal.

1080p60hz the gold standard in PC gaming? Even for 60hz 1440p has been around for a long while now. It's not that 60hz isn't playable but for fast twitch shooters where you are using a mouse to control your view there is a very noticeable difference dropping from 120hz to 60hz. If you are using analog sticks on a joypad the difference is way less apparent. There are still plenty of games I will chose to play on a tv at 60hz rather than 144hz on my monitor.

A 1080ti will hit 144hz in most pvp twitch shooters at 1440p at high or max settings paired with the right cpu. Although in competitive shooters people tend to run lower settings for general increased visibility and also to get reduced input lag from a higher frame rate anyhow.

This price has now raised to £278
The one I ordered turned up today. Checking out the box contents before wrapping it up for Christmas. Unsurprisingly it's a Euro plug in the box. The screen is powered by a laptop type supply that takes a cloverleaf plug on the input side. I have a spare one from an old laptop which works fine. If you don't have one (and have ordered the monitor) you'll need one of these amazon.co.uk/gp/…c=1 or just chop the plug off and put a UK one on. HDMI cable included in the box, but no displayport cable, if you want to connect it that way. I sneakily hooked my laptop to it before putting away, no dead pixels and quite frankly it looks amazing.

I've been testing the 25" (older) version of this monitor for a few days now. I think it's worth mentioning that Amazon Prime Video supports 21:9 native 1080p in Microsoft's Edge Browser - but obviously only for content shot in that resolution. Unsure about the current situation regarding Netflix.

Being tn doesn't automatically mean lower lag since you also need to account for the input delay of the monitor itself. I switched from the pg278q (tn) to the ips version. you were looking at 1ms + 9ms response time vs 4ms + 6ms on the IPS one so they were the same. Plus even if there is a difference, it will be imperceptible to 99.9% of gamers. The difference in colour though is very perceptible.

„Even the most expensive GPUs struggle...” rings the bell? Hence I mention …„Even the most expensive GPUs struggle...” rings the bell? Hence I mention 1080ti and not 1070/1080. And windows scaling isn’t personal preference. Optimal screen size to resolution ratio isn’t personal preference either. Hence the low price because it’s crap. Basically. You want to play 1080p on 1070/1080 not a problem. Buy some 24” ips and you’re going to be sweet. And they not that pricey as well. Buy bigger one and the dot is big enough to notice.


I can't be bothered arguing with you. It's personal preference what someone determines when the pixels are "too big", I'm not stating 4k isn't better, I'm saying some people still prefer a 32inch 1080p over a 24inch 1080p monitor. Clearly some people enjoy it. Just like a home cinema projector where people watch a 120inch 1080p projection on a screen over a 40inch 1080p TV. Personal preference. Goodbye.

We only saying that certain screen sizes scale and look good only in certain resolutions. 24" is ideal for 1080p, 27" for 1440p and 32"+ for 4k. Having higher (than that) resolution on a smaller size is fine, BUT other way around having small res (like 1080p) on huge screen like 32" isn't good. The dot is too big and visible and the scaling isn't right. It's not a case of individual preference.

Not saying you shouldn't but just seems a bit pointless spending that extra money on a monitor that an older Xbox won't be able to take advantage of. Why not use a cheaper monitor or TV, and save £100/£200ish? You could get 1ms on a cheaper monitor and save money.

I'd be grateful for anyones thoughts, not really up to date with monitors.Thanks

I just bought this monitor for £379.99 from Very, neglecting the fact it was QHD 1440p.

Videos and streaming stuff through my laptop looks great and it's quick and snappy when playing games.

However, I mainly use it for console gaming and as the PS4 doesn't output 1440p natively, it has to upscale 1080p which looks awfully blurry, almost looks 720p.

I could probably live with it, if it would have been a cheaper monitor but not for this price.

I've bought a 1080p curved Acer instead. ED322Q I think. £130 cheaper too, it was OOS orginally as it was the one I wanted at first so I settled for the Omen instead.

Also, for the 3 days I was using it I got terrible eye strain/headaches and I've read others say the same. Something to do with PWM (I think)

1070, 1080, FreeSync range?


Exactly. You can only operate in FreeSync range with cards that don't work with FS.

@mazymony Good luck getting a Vega 64 for under £600! A 580 absolutely isn't fine for the majority of mainstream games that have come out in the last two years, c.f. anandtech.com/ben…868 I also know that because I have an overclocked 290x that's roughly the same performance as a 580. It absolutely isn't good enough to stay in Freesync range at 1440p, even in older games like Borderlands 2.


That's also not to mention the problem with most higher end AMD cards where they struggle to maintain fps consistency compared to similar nvidia cards, going back to the lack of LFC on this monitor.

I've always bought AMD/ATI going back to the early 00s, but the 3 generations between the 2** series and Vega are a joke. Almost zero progress.
Edited by: "khamito" 26th Nov 2017
I had this monitor and did some extensive testing on it. It has about 50ms input latency, which is about 3 frames. I was coming from a 10ms ultrawide and I could definitely tell the difference (I'd miss-time my jumps in Dying Light, for example). There's also pretty bad pixel persistence, so fast moving images make everything very blurry. If you can live with these things, it's a good monitor. It also stutters at 75Hz on nvidia GPUs so you have to drop to 60. I personally got a 32 inch Viewsonic 60Hz IPS monitor and it completely blows it out of the water!

You need an AMD card for Freesync. For the latest games, a 64 for max settings but with lighter games a 580 would be fine.

I guess you're just too damn unlucky! :P
As a naysayer, be aware you get what you pay for; other models that claimed good frame rate overclocking were actually found to be dropping frames to get the claimed speeds, and not actually giving the real refresh rate.

If you get a good one, great, but far too many people have reported returning unit after unit across multiple model ranges for me to ever risk my money on one.

The above "returned three" is NOT unusual for this make.

Save a bit longer, or stretch your credit card a bit further and go for an Acer, LG or Samsung curved gaming screen; AFAIK, all 3 makes use the same VA panels.
Paid another £70 and got an LG model. Swapped the high res for 144hz and havent looked back. Amazing!
