New monitor recommendations

Budget 500-550. Not fussed about size, 27" or thereabouts should be plenty. As high res and low ms response as possible would be just lovely. I've gone blind looking at the range of monitors available so I might not even need one as a result.

All recommendations gratefully received. I won't do a devs and solicit opinions then go off and do my own thing.

Ta.

I've got this and it's very nice:

There's also a TN version with 1ms response that's cheaper.

Sod the cost. Go on the game. Sell some of your internal organs, anything.

Have the S27 at work. Have U27 IPS at home, it's not 120hz, but it *is* a glorious monitor.

I done gone did a devs and got a PB287Q 28" 3840X2160 TN 4K 60HZ 1MS bastard. Similar to the one WoRsTy suggested up there but slightly lower spec and actually available to buy which his suggestion wasn't. I'll probably regret it but it's only money innit? *shrugs*

Yes, they're fine. They will however only display 60Hz unless you spend a bit more money - but I think whichever IPS panel you buy still has a high chance of suffering from bleed at the higher freqs.

send it back; people have not finished answering yet
"it's only money innit" is also not an acceptable standard of product review after everyone's input to date.


2 /5 disappointing, no real effort put in
will award only 7/10 devs as lacked the annoyingness, never went full retard

They are absolutely fine for gaming. Some of them suffer IPS bleed, but you'll only notice it on pure black screens in a dark room (so hardly ever). TNs have a horrible colour shift, particularly on bigger screens.
