AOC U3277PWQU with ‘4K’ UHD MVA panel

The 3840 x 2160 ‘4K’ UHD resolution has a lot to offer, especially on a ~32” screen where the balance between readability and pixel density is relatively good. For users wanting the strong contrast and lack of ‘IPS glow’ that VA (Vertical Alignment) technology offers, the choice of UHD models has been quite overwhelming. So far, in fact, they have been limited to monitors using 40” or so panels that borrowed from TVs.

Samsung C34F791 100Hz VA UltraWide with Quantum Dot backlight

A few years back, Samsung unveiled the S34E790C. With its curved UltraWide VA panel, it provided an interesting and in some respects more attractive alternative to the more widespread UltraWides with IPS panels. More recent IPS UltraWides have also pushed refresh rate up well past the 60Hz limit of this model, making them far more attractive to gamers.

Samsung C24FG70 and C27FG70 144Hz curved VA monitors with FreeSync

It has been several years since Samsung produced a high refresh rate monitor, with their glossy SA750 and SA950 models offering something a bit different to everything else on the market today. Indeed the S27A750D has served us very well as a reference display for comparison monitor responsiveness. The Samsung C24FG70 (C24FG70FQ alternative designation) and C27FG70 (C27FG70FQ alternative designation) are new 23.5” and 27″ members of the CFG70 series, boasting curved 144Hz VA panels.

LG 38UC99 37.5 inch curved UltraWide with 3840 x 1600 resolution

Many users find the combination of 34” screen and 3440 x 1440 resolution enticing, offering a nice combination of pixel density and physical screen space. But others find the height in particular (similar to a 27” 16:9 model) a bit restrictive, and want something bigger that maintains a similar ‘UltraWide’ aspect ratio and pixel density. The LG 38UC99 (also known as 38UC99-W owing to the white back) may be just the sort of product these users are interested in.

LG 34UC79G 144Hz IPS UltraWide model

Recent trends in the 21:9 UltraWide market have included a combination of ‘overclocked’ IPS models, running at up to 100Hz. And of course VA models ‘running’ at up to 200Hz without really offering offering sufficient pixel responsiveness to support this properly. The LG 34UC79G (also known as the 34UC79G-B due to the matte black colouration) offers something a bit different – a native 144Hz AH-IPS panel.

Acer XB271HU and XB271HUT 165Hz WQHD AHVA models

Some users may be a little confused as to why we are bringing ‘news’ of the Acer XB271HU several months after its release. As it happens, we never published a news piece on this as we were expecting to have reviewed it by now. Unfortunately, a review sample of this never materialised despite repeated requests to Acer, so here we are.
