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).

Dell UP2516D and UP2716D – wide gamut WQHD monitors

Dell’s UltraSharp series is generally very highly regarded amongst consumers, something echoed by our own largely positive experiences with models in the range. The Dell UP2516D and UP2716D are new additions to the range, featuring GB-LED backlights for extended colour gamuts. Aesthetically the models look quite similar to the U2515H and U2715H with a few refinements.

ASUS PG27AQ ROG SWIFT – 4K G-SYNC model

The PG278Q ROG SWIFT has won over many gamers with its mixture of high resolution, high refresh rate and support for Nvidia G-SYNC variable refresh rate technology. We have to stop affectionately referring to this model simply as the ‘ROG SWIFT’, though, because there’s now another ‘ROG SWIFT’ in town. The ASUS PG27AQ brandishes the same title but is an altogether different beast – on the inside, at least.

Samsung S24E650C and S27E650C

Samsung really are keen to get users to adopt curved screens for their computers, be it on their home or office desk. From our experience with their curved 34” UltraWide model, the curve is certainly a welcome (albeit subtle) addition. The company also has a range of considerably less wide displays in the 16:9 aspect ratio, including the S24E510C and S27E510C.

AOC G2460PF and G2770PF FreeSync gaming models

Whilst only one of several elements of responsiveness, high refresh rates have the potential to really bolster the fluidity of the gaming experience. But for variable frame rate environments, where the frame rate of the game doesn’t match up with the refresh rate of the monitor, things can quite literally get a bit choppy. If you enable VSync (triple buffering or not) then you’re subjected to stuttering, whereas if you disable VSync you’re left with tearing and juddering.
