I've used a 27" Korean 1440p 120hz monitor for the last 2 years and it has been great. I bought it mainly for gaming but it of course is fine for other tasks. Although it's a 120hz monitor I only have it running at 110hz because I use a 2m DVI-D cable and it doesn't work  at 120, it was fine on a 1m long cable though.


The specific model is X-STAR DP2710 with a Samsung PLS panel. It's pretty much featureless with only 1 DVI input and no on screen controls but it performs amazingly considering what I paid for it (NZD$380) and it had no dead pixels when arrived!

ASUS XB270HU 27" 2560x1440 144Hz G-Sync


Bought myself the Acer X34 Predator but it was too wide for me haha so I sold it.





If it's the XB270HU, pretty sure it's an Acer :)




I have the XB271HU and although Acer's QA on the first panel I took home was nothing short of shocking (2 dead pixels out of the box plus very noticeable backlight bleeding), now that I have a perfect panel* I love it. The combination of excellent colours (after a lot of adjustment), no lag, and screen real estate is amazing. For people who game and want an IPS panel, I think this is well worth it. Just make sure you buy from a supportive retailer (Playtech and Computer Lounge are my recommendations) that gives you a cast-iron perfect pixel guarantee during the warranty period.








* kudos to Playtech, the retailer that I bought the thing from -- they swapped out my monitors with no hassles, whereas Acer seemed barely interested)





Haha yes thanks god spotting, not sure why I put ASUS there.
