Postby A Solid lad » 04 Mar 2018, 02:59

Does anyone know about upcoming 27" 1080p 240hz monitors that I should look out/wait for if I'm in the market for one of those?

My current list is:
Benq xl2740
Acer predator XB272
LG 27GK750F-B
Acer XF270HA - ruled out, heavy frameskipping with no fix found yet

What exactly are you looking for? they all use the same panel and the G-Sync ones will all perform pretty much the same.

Any of them are fine.

For the cheapest one.
Which still performs well in regards both to color and overdrive quality.
...And also has low input lag.
I really liked the freesync (cheaper) version of the Alienware 25.
If Dell'd come out with a 27 inch version, I'd be all over it.

So... any rumors/announcements interest me.
I got the Alienware 25 for 300, and the acer xr270ha for 350 eur.
I'm looking for something sub 400 eur...cannot justify spending more.

1080p on 27" looks kinda bad. There's supposed to be 27" 1440p 240hz later this year.

If you're gaming it's fine (hell, even for normal usage it's fine).

I have the LG 27GK750F-B and it's the best gaming screen I have owned so far.

Granted, 1440p is better (I have the Asus ROG PG278Q right beside which is 27" @ 1440p) but it doesn't compare for gaming. Just can't beat strobed 240hz.

In the 27 inch form factor for 240 Hz, the current Blur Busters favourite is the LG 27GK750F monitor. It has a decent implementation of motion blur reduction that works at 240Hz.

I have tried the LG and didn't like how movement looked on it... and it also felt less responsive than the AW2518hf I've tried.
When it comes to 27" 240hz screens, the Acer xf270ha was much more to my liking than the LG... but that monitor skips frames :(

I could get the LG right now for 250 euros new from an online shop here... (Tha caveat being that it has been opened up and sent back by somebody else, meaning I can't do the same... This time, I have to keep it if I order it.)

List of 240hz monitors I've tried in the order I got them:
aw2518hf
xf270ha
27gk750f-b
aw2518h

My favourite was the aw2518hf, It felt the most responsive, with the best OD implementation to my eyes. (Yes, it was even better than it's more expensive g-sync brother in both categories.)

Runner up is the acer, which I would have kept, if it wouldn't have been for the frameskipping issue.

As I've said, I didn't like how the screen looked when the picture was in motion on the LG.
Yes, it felt responsive and fast...but onscreen motion seemed smeary/grainy to me.... and I know it wasn't because of the lower pixel density, since I didn't have this problem with the acer 27" monitor.

As for the aw2518h it loses out to it's cheaper sibling, it felt less responsive, and the last two OD settings (fast and super fast) were overdone, and as such, unusable...the fist one (normal) was fine in most cases, but in some, it would have needed juuust a little bit more umph, to get motion to seem more clear.
(idk why manufacturers don't enable more granual control over the overdrive on the their monitors... 3 steps are usually not enough, because they fail to dial them in correctly...)
Also, the screen was just brighter overall by default when compered to the freesync version (aw2518hf) which was unnecessary... the screen didn't need the brighter gamma setting, which it received.


Next up I'm gonna try the much more expensive xl2740, as I'm desperate to find a 27" 240h monitor which is as good as the aw2518hf. (at least in terms pf responsiveness and motion clarity... I can live with slightly worse colors and brighter gamma)
