    Eizo FS2434 vs EV2451 vs Benq EW277HDR

    Hey! Did not wanted to create separate topic for this but after all I have a hard time deciding. Monitor for singleplayer games, dark souls, bloodborne and many sp games like new metro exodus. I am ok with 60hz since those games are either locked to 60fps (soulsborne) or are very demanding...

    ASUS VG279Q - 144hz, 1080p IPS. Late to the paty? Just came out about a month ago unnoticed.

    BenQ PD2700U released

    New 4k 60hz ips just came out. Seems like direct competition to LG 27uk650(same price) and Asus PB27UQ(asus is 100$ more expensive). Couldn't find any response times measurements in comparison to monitors mentioned above so not sure if it's good for console and/or pc gaming. The few opinions and...

    Hey! Even though my pc and consoles are not fully 4k ready (gtx 1060 6gb and ps4), I am looking at 4k upgrade options.

    Asus PB27UQ integer scaling for 1080p ?! (prad review)

    After a bit of a failure with 27" 1080p Benq ew277hdr, I am looking ag 27" 4k monitors for maximum image quality. The biggest problem with 4k montiors ever since is suppsoedly bad blurring/scaling of 1080p resolution. Many people say "it's perfect because 4k is 4x1080p and pixels..." bullshit...

    Any new GLOSSY monitors on the horizon?

    Just asking about the "old" golden standard 1080p, 60hz, IPS or VA. Good calibration and so on.
