BenQ GC2870H wide gamut VA

A little while back we brought you news of the EZ2450L, a monitor which seemed to be shooting towards the affordable wide gamut solution space. That was actually first discussed by us in August 2014, so needless to say that monitor appears to be vapourware. For those keen on a wider colour space but not quite ‘wide gamut’ in the traditional sense, the BenQ GC2870H could be an intriguing solution.

LG 34UM88 3440 x 1440 UltraWide model

With all this talk of new curved monitors and something of an emerging trend for even more steeply curved monitors, it’s easy to forget that some users would prefer a flat screen. This may just be a general preference, or alternatively they could have a good reason for wanting that – perhaps they’re designers and they don’t want their work to be adulterated by screen curvature.

LG 27UD68 ‘4K’ UHD model with FreeSync

The LG 27UD68 (also referred to as the 27UD68-P or 27UD68-W for the black and silver coloured stand, respectively) adds to the ever-expanding range of monitors with VESA Adaptive-Sync. By supporting this standard, the monitor can be used with AMD’s FreeSync variable refresh rate technology to help eliminate stuttering and tearing from transitional frame rate and refresh rate mismatches.

Acer XR342CK highly curved 3440 x 1440 FreeSync monitor

The Acer XR341CK was the first monitor to combine a 34” 3440 x 1440 panel with support for AMD’s FreeSync variable refresh rate technology. Its gentle curve is also enough to give a little subtle extra depth to the gaming and movie-watching experience whilst bringing the edges of the screen a bit closer to the eyes.

ViewSonic VX2475Smhl-4K with UHD PLS panel

We’ve seen monitors reach fairly gargantuan sizes recently, with an increasing number of 32” and even some 40” models. For some users, though, a monitor of around 24” is a very comfortable size. And when it comes to exceptional pixel densities, it is these relatively small ‘4K’ UHD models which really stand out. The Dell P2415Q impressed us with its well-rounded UHD performance and very fair pricing.

Dell SE2417HG 60Hz gaming monitor

As we explore in this article, there is little need to demand supremely fast response times on a 60Hz monitor. Indeed, when you see ‘1ms’ quoted on an LCD monitor, you can be quite sure that it’s for a cherry-picked pixel transition. And likely performed whilst using an unsuitably fast pixel overdrive setting with boatloads of overshoot (inverse ghosting).
