BenQ EW277HDR

BenQ EW277HDR

 

Good for:

All-around use, movies and some gaming on the PC or games consoles as well.

Panel used:

AU Optronics M270HVN02 variant AMVA (27″, 60Hz).

Screen surface:

Very light matte with smooth texture, with fairly effective glare handling and a ‘clean’ (non-grainy) look to the image.

Additional specifications:

  • 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) resolution
  • PWM-free (flicker-free) WLED backlight (~DCI-P3 colour gamut)
  • 4ms grey to grey response time
  • 2 HDMI 2.0 ports, VGA, 3.5mm audio in, 3.5mm headphone jack, stereo speakers
  • Stand offers tilt


Why choose this monitor:

The BenQ EW277HDR features a 27″ Full HD panel with a very light matte screen surface and strong contrast performance. This delivers a ‘clean’ image with excellent contrast between bright and dark shades. In addition to strong static contrast, the monitor provides low levels of ‘glow’ (even for a VA panel). The colour gamut is generous, offering good DCI-P3 coverage, whilst colour consistency is as good as you’ll see from a VA model. The generous colour gamut makes sense given the HDR functionality of the monitor, but it delivers a vibrant experience for SDR content as well. In fact we would not buy this screen for its HDR capability; its SDR performance is much more compelling.

As is usual for VA models there are some weaknesses with response times for some transitions, but most are performed rapidly without obvious overshoot (inverse ghosting) being introduced. The screen also has low levels of input lag and we were able to run it at 75Hz without issue, for an edge in ‘connected feel’ and lower perceived blur. It ticks a lot of boxes for viewing comfort as well, including a flicker-free backlight and a selection of easily accessible and effective Low Blue Light (LBL) settings.

Samsung C34F791

Samsung C34F791

 

Good for:

Gaming, movies and all-round desktop use.

Panel used:

Samsung LTM340YP04 (34″ curved VA, 48-100Hz variable with Adaptive-Sync).

Screen surface:

Very light matte anti-glare, preserving vibrancy and clarity well with low graininess and decent glare-handling characteristics.

Additional specifications:

  • 3440 x 1440 resolution
  • PWM-free (flicker-free) Quantum Dot + blue LED backlight (sRGB+ colour gamut)
  • 4ms grey to grey response time
  • 2 HDMI 2.0 ports (supports FreeSync), DP 1.2a (supports FreeSync), 3.5mm headphone jack, 2 USB 3.0 ports and 7W stereo speakers
  • The stand offers tilt and height adjustment. VESA mounting supported.


Why choose this monitor:

The Samsung C34F791 offers a minimalistic but attractive style, with a height adjustable stand and provision for VESA mounting. The real beauty of this model is on the inside, though, where a curved 34″ ‘UltraWide’ (21:9 aspect ratio) VA panel is housed. At 1500R, the curve is relatively steep on this model, but it’s something we adapted to quite readily and found perfectly natural. The 3440 x 1440 resolution provides a pleasing pixel density and plenty of screen space, with an enhanced Field of View (FOV) in many games to add to immersion and playability. The monitor delivers good levels of detail in games combined with strong contrast and rich colour reproduction. The combination of flicker-free Quantum Dot backlight and modern SVA panel provide a vivid but varied look to gaming worlds. ‘Low Blue Light’ settings are also provided to further enhance viewing comfort.

A key distinguishing feature of this model is its native 100Hz refresh rate, coupled with well-implemented pixel overdrive. This delivers an excellent ‘connected feel’ and reduced perceived blur compared to models with lower refresh rates. An additional bonus for AMD users is support for AMD FreeSync (via ‘Adaptive-Sync’), with a variable refresh rate range of 48 – 100Hz to remove tearing or stuttering caused by refresh rate and frame rate mismatches. When coupled with the engrossing and colour-rich experience of the screen itself, the high refresh rate provides a superb PC gaming experience.

Acer XB271HU

Acer XB271HU

 

Good for:

Gaming, colour-critical work and general desktop use.

Panel used:

AU Optronics M270DAN02.6 (27” AHVA, 30 – 165Hz variable with G-SYNC).

Screen surface:

Very light matte, providing good glare reduction characteristics whilst preserving strong clarity and vibrancy.

Additional specifications:

  • 2560 x 1440 (WQHD) resolution
  • PWM-free (flicker-free) WLED backlight (sRGB+ colour gamut)
  • 4ms grey to grey response time
  • DP 1.2 (with G-SYNC), HDMI 1.4, 4 USB 3.0 ports, 3.5mm audio input and 3.5mm headphone jack
  • Stand fully adjustable (height, tilt, swivel and pivot) plus 100 x 100mm VESA mounting. Integrated 2W speakers


Why choose this monitor:

The Acer XB271HU of the company’s Predator range provides an excellent mixture of image quality, responsiveness and gaming-oriented features and capabilities. An AHVA (Advanced Hyper Viewing Angle) panel is used, which is essentially panel manufacturer AUO’s take on LG’s popular IPS (In Plane Switching) technology. With fairly minimal tweaking, the monitor delivers vibrant but accurately represented and consistent colours from a wide range of viewing angles. Support for 10-bit colour reproduction (8-bit + FRC), 100% sRGB coverage and a range of image presets are combined with a very light matte screen surface to give very pleasing colour output that’s good for both work and play. The interpolation process is also good when running the monitor at non-native resolutions such as 1920 x 1080 – making it suitable for console gaming as a secondary use, for example.

The attractive attributes of this monitor certainly don’t stop there. It offers a 165Hz refresh rate and well optimised pixel responses to deliver a compelling experience at such refresh rates without unsightly inverse ghosting (overshoot). This keeps the level of perceived blur nice and low during high frame rate gaming. This is coupled with very low input lag and support for Nvidia G-SYNC for compatible Nvidia GPUs, eliminating the stuttering and tearing associated with frame rate and refresh rate mismatches. For those who can sustain a frame rate matching the refresh rate and value the lowest possible levels of perceived blur, an alternative strobe backlight setting called ULMB is also offered to users with compatible Nvidia GPUs.

ViewSonic XG2402

ViewSonic XG2402

 

Good for:

Fluid fast-paced PC gaming. This monitor can still be used for console gaming as a secondary use, but be aware that consoles are restricted to 60Hz and relatively low frame rates – that doesn’t give these monitors a chance to shine.

Panel used:

Twisted Nematic (24″, 48-144Hz variable with Adaptive-Sync).

Screen surface:

Medium matte anti-glare.

Additional specifications:

  • 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) resolution
  • PWM-free (flicker-free) WLED backlight (sRGB colour gamut)
  • 1ms grey to grey response time
  • HDMI 1.4 (supports FreeSync), HDMI 2.0 (supports FreeSync), DP 1.2a (supports FreeSync), 2 USB 3.0 ports, 3.5mm headphone jack
  • Screen is fully adjustable with 100mm VESA support. 2 x 2W speakers are also included


Why choose this monitor:

The ViewSonic XG2402 uses a fairly ubiqituous 144Hz panel, but puts it to excellent use. The OSD (On Screen Display) offers excellent flexibility, including various ‘Gamma’ settings to help users achieve an image that appears rich overall rather than washed-out. It certainly doesn’t skimp on responsiveness, either. This model sports exceptionally low signal delay (low input lag) and excellent 144Hz pixel responsiveness – the connected feel and and visual fluidity that this provides is excellent. Unlike many competing models, this model is overshoot-free using the optimal response time setting so there is no unsightly inverse ghosting to get in the way of the experience. This is also bolstered by support for AMD FreeSync, eliminating the stuttering and tearing that ensues from the usual refresh rate and frame rate mismatches.

Other aspects of interest include a range of useful ‘Low Blue Light’ settings to promote more relaxing viewing, particularly useful in the evening. The backlight is also flicker-free at all brightness levels to help aid viewing comfort. The included stand is fully adjustable and complements the solid build quality of the monitor. We feel that this is an excellent 24″ 144Hz gaming monitor for both Nvidia and AMD GPU users It also supports games consoles as a secondary use via HDMI, but they are restricted to a maximum of 60Hz.

LG 32GK850G

LG 32GK850G

 

Good for:

Gaming, movies and general desktop use.

Panel used:

AU Optronics M315DVR01 variant (31.5″ VA, 30 – 165Hz variable with G-SYNC).

Screen surface:

Light matte anti-glare, providing good glare reduction characteristics whilst preserving strong clarity and vibrancy better than some screen surfaces.

Additional specifications:

  • 2560 x 1440 (WQHD) resolution
  • PWM-free (flicker-free) WLED backlight (~sRGB colour gamut)
  • 4ms grey to grey response time
  • DP 1.2 (with G-SYNC), HDMI 1.4, 2 USB 3.0 ports, 3.5mm audio input and 3.5mm headphone jack
  • Stand fully adjustable (height, tilt, swivel and pivot) plus 100 x 100mm VESA mounting. Integrated 2W speakers


Why choose this monitor:

The LG 32GK850G doesn’t scream ‘gaming monitor’ like some designs do, but it’s certainly designed with that purpose in mind. It uses a VA (Vertical Alignment) panel with strong static contrast and minimal ‘glow’ of any description. This provides a good atmosphere for dark scenes in games, movies and images. Brighter elements stand out well, with the light matte anti-glare screen surface staving off obvious graininess. The 31.5″ screen is large and immersive, whilst the 2560 x 1440 (WQHD) resolution provides both a decent pixel density and a good amount of useful work space outside of gaming. An 8-bit colour depth is supported alongside an sRGB colour gamut. Colours aren’t quite as vibrant as on some models, with more generous colour gamuts, but they’re represented in a natural and fairly accurate way. Colour consistency and viewing angle performance is strong for the panel type, too, so the loss of saturation towards the flanks and bottom of the screen is not too extreme.

No gaming monitor worth its salt would slack when it comes to responsiveness. This model offers a 165Hz refresh rate and has very little input lag. This gives the user an excellent ‘connected feel’ when interacting with the game environment at suitably high frame rates. The perceived blur is also reduced significantly in such scenarios, making it easier to keep track of what’s going on and making the experience more comfortable and fluid. G-SYNC is also supported on compatible Nvidia GPUs, combatting tearing and stuttering from frame rate and refresh rate mismatches. As usual for a VA panel, there are some weaknesses in pixel respnosiveness where dark shades are involved in the transition. But these are not as widespread nor as extreme on this model as on most VA monitors.

Dell U2414H

Dell U2414H

 

Good for:

All-round use including photography/design work, general desktop use and entertainment (both PC and games consoles).

Panel used:

LG Display LM238WF2-SSA1 (23.8” AH-IPS, 60Hz).

Screen surface:

Medium matte anti-glare. Significantly less grainy than some matte surfaces, good glare-handling.

Additional specifications:

  • 1920 x 1080 resolution
  • PWM-free (flicker-free) WLED backlight (sRGB colour gamut)
  • 8ms grey to grey response time
  • 2 HDMI ports (with MHL), DP 1.2a, MiniDP 1.2a, DP 1.2a output, 3.5mm audio out, 4 USB 3.0 ports
  • Screen can be tilted, adjusted in height, swivelled and pivoted. There is also VESA support for alternative mounting


Why choose this monitor:

The Dell U2414H is an excellent all-round performer with strengths in key areas including colour reproduction and responsiveness. The AH-IPS panel provides rich and consistent colour reproduction for shades within the sRGB colour space. This makes the monitor attractive for colour-critical work such as photo editing, particularly after calibration. The 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) resolution remains popular for ‘entertainment’ purposes due to compatability with games consoles, movies and the relatively low GPU horepower requirements for PC gaming. For games and movies the IPS panel gives rich and life-like colours with a great subtle shade variety – you’ll be able to pick out the slightest shade differences, something that isn’t possible on monitors with TN panels due to colour inconsistencies at different points of the screen. Some users are sensitive to the rapid ‘on’ and ‘off’ pulsing typically used to lower monitor backlight brightness (something called PWM or Pulse Width Modulation). This model avoids such modulation of the backlight; it has a flicker-free backlight to increase viewing comfort.

This model also puts in quite a competitive performance in terms of responsiveness, with low input lag and effective grey to grey acceleration (pixel overdrive). As far as 60Hz monitors go it’s really not bad at all and can certainly be used for gaming purposes with that refresh rate in mind. Don’t fall into the trap of paying too much attention to specified response times. Other attractive features include the slender bezels (good for multi-display setups), a good range of ports and strong ergonomic flexibility. It may not be the newest monitor on the market, but you should not judge it by its age – it has remained on the market as a customer favourite for several years and remains so today.

LG 27UD68

LG 27UD68

 

Good for:

General usage, high resolution image editing, movies and gaming on both the PC and ‘4K-ready’ games consoles such as the PS4 Pro and Xbox One X.

Panel used:

LG Display LM270WR2-SPA2 (27” AH-IPS, 40-60Hz variable with Adaptive-Sync).

Screen surface:

Light matte anti-glare with a fairly smooth surface texture, providing a good level of clarity and vibrancy potential.

Additional specifications:

  • 3840 x 2160 (‘4K’ UHD) resolution
  • PWM-free (flicker-free) WLED backlight (sRGB+ colour gamut)
  • 5ms grey to grey response time
  • DP 1.2a (supports Adaptive-Sync), 2 HDMI 2.0 ports, 3.5mm headphone jack
  • Screen is fully adjustable with integrated 3W speakers. 100 x 100mm VESA holes are included


Why choose this monitor:

The LG 27UD68 is a modern-looking monitor, with a shapely black brushed-effect stand (‘P’ model) and very slender bezels. The bezels use a dual-stage ‘cinema screen’ design, which combines a hard outer bezel and slim panel border – beware of potentially misleading media shots that seem to miss this slim panel border out. The image performance is very solid overall, with a 3840 x 2160 (‘4K’ UHD) resolution spread across a 27″ area for a tight 163.18 PPI (Pixels Per Inch). The panel is a well-calibrated AH-IPS part, with pleasing gamma handling and colour setup out of the box, 10-bit colour support and strong viewing angle performance. This is coupled with a light matte screen surface and generous (a little beyond sRGB) colour gamut for a consistently vivid and enticing image. The LG provides good accuracy for design work, image and movie editing as well as an appealing image for games and movies. ‘Low Blue Light’ settings are also featured to further enhnace viewing comfort – and provide a welcome relief from high levels of stimulating blue light in the evening, for example.

Responsiveness is also good, as far as 60Hz models go. The pixel overdrive solution is well-implemented to reduce perceived blur to levels that are about as low as you’ll see on a 60Hz monitor. This is coupled with a DAS (‘Dynamic Action Sync’) low input lag mode which minimises input lag without compromising image quality. Another party trick is the presence of Adaptive-Sync, which allows compatible AMD GPUs (for example) to employ FreeSync for a variable refresh rate range of 40 – 60Hz on this model. We see this very much as a ‘free addition’ or bonus as this model is excellent for Nvidia users as well. What’s more, it is one of a fairly slender selection of UHD models sporting HDMI 2.0 – meaning it can drive ‘4K-ready’ consoles such as the PS4 Pro at up to 3840 x 2160 @ 60Hz.

BenQ PD3200U

BenQ PD3200U

 

Good for:

General use, CAD/CAM, photography, films and high resolution PC gaming. Also suitable for’4K-ready’ games consoles such as the PS4 Pro and Xbox One X.

Panel used:

AU Optronics M320QAN01 variant (32” AHVA, 60Hz).

Screen surface:

Very light matte anti-glare, retaining good clarity and vibrancy compared to many matte surfaces. Still provides effective glare-reduction.

Additional specifications:

  • 3840 x 2160 (‘4K’ UHD) resolution
  • PWM-free (flicker-free) WLED backlight (sRGB+ colour gamut)
  • 4ms grey to grey response time
  • 2 x HDMI 2.0 ports, DP 1.2, MiniDP 1.2, Dual-Link DVI-D, SD card reader, 4 USB 3.0 ports (plus 2 upstream for KVM), 3.5mm headphone jack and 3.5mm audio input
  • Screen is fully adjustable with VESA mounting included. Dedicated remote included for intuitive menu navigation plus 2 x 5W speakers


Why choose this monitor:

The BenQ PD3200U is an excellent showcase of ‘4K’ UHD capability. The large screen size complements the resolution very nicely, allowing those with decent eyesight to get by without relying on scaling. Meanwhile the excellent pixel density brings with it that lovely crisp, clear ‘4K’ look to games and compatible movie content. But this monitor isn’t just about the pixels. The image quality is excellent from the AHVA (Advanced Hyper-Viewing Angle) IPS-type panel. It outputs beautifully rich and varied colours, good contrast (with surprisingly low ‘glow’ for an IPS-type screen of this size) and has a very light matte screen surface to help retain strong vibrancy and clarity. The excellent colour consistency offered by the panel type aids the general image viewing experience whether on the desktop, in game or watching movies. It also makes the monitor a strong candidate for photo editing and other colour-critical tasks. To complement such uses, 10-bit colour is supported (8-bit + FRC) whilst the factory calibration is one of the best we’ve seen.

Responsiveness is as strong as we’ve seen from a ‘4K’ model, with very little input lag to speak of and well-tuned pixel responsiveness that makes good use of the 60Hz refresh rate. The build quality of the screen and fully adjustable stand is also impressive, as is the comprehensiveness of the OSD (On Screen Display) and accuracy of the gamma settings offered there. To make navigating this as simple as possible a dedicated remove is also included, which sits comfortably in a dedicated holder in the centre of the stand base. Alternatively this can be placed somewhere more convenient – it is attached to the monitor with a slender cable. The range of ports included on the monitor is also excellent, so overall it’s a well-rounded package.

Dell S2417DG

Dell S2417DG

 

Good for:

Fluid fast-paced PC gaming, general desktop use.

Panel used:

AU Optronics TN (23.8″, 30-165Hz variable with G-SYNC).

Screen surface:

Light matte anti-glare, for good glare handling without obvious graininess.

Additional specifications:

  • 2560 x 1440 (WQHD) resolution
  • PWM-free (flicker-free) WLED backlight (sRGB colour gamut)
  • 1ms grey to grey response time
  • DP 1.2 (with G-SYNC), HDMI 1.4, 4 USB 3.0 ports (plus upstream), 3.5mm headphone jack, 3.5mm audio input
  • Screen offers full ergonomic flexibility. There is also VESA 100 support


Why choose this monitor:

The Dell S2417DG features a WQHD resolution (2560 x 1440) and true 8-bit colour reproduction. A flicker-free (PWM free) backlight is included to enhance viewing comfort. This resolution provides good detail in gaming environments whilst providing a good amount of useful work space without necessitating scaling. Once calibrated the screen provides colours which appear rich, whilst the lack of ‘IPS glow’ will certainly please fans of more atmospheric dark scenes. Theis model features an unfussy modern design without extra fripperies and ‘cool gaming features’ (not everybody likes such things, of course) and offer an HDMI port for console connectivity as well.

Key to the experience, though, is the 165Hz refresh rate and the very snappy (yet effectively overshoot-free) pixel responses. This provides excellent motion fluidity at high frame rates for PC gaming with very little input lag. The monitor also supports Nvidia G-SYNC, allowing compatible Nvidia GPUs to dynamically alter the monitor’s refresh rate (between 30 – 165Hz) to match the content’s frame rate. This eliminates stuttering and tearing related to frame rate and refresh rate mismatch and offers reduced latency compared to VSync. For those who value ‘CRT-like’ motion clarity, ULMB (Ultra Low Motion Blur) is also supported on compatible Nvidia GPUs. Nvidia 3D Vision (1 and 2) is also supported.

Dell U2518D(x)

Dell U2518D(x)

 

Good for:

All-round use including gaming, movies, photography/design work and general desktop use.

Panel used:

IPS-type (25”, 60Hz).

Screen surface:

Very light matte anti-glare for strong vibrancy and clarity whilst handling glare fairly effectively.

Additional specifications:

  • 2560 x 1440 resolution
  • PWM-free (flicker-free) WLED backlight (sRGB+ colour gamut)
  • 5ms grey to grey response time
  • HDMI 2.0, DP 1.2, mDP 1.2, DP 1.2 output (for MST daisy-chaining), 3.5mm audio output, 4 USB 3.0 downstream ports (one with fast-charging) and 1 USB 3.0 upstream port
  • The stand is fully adjustable with 100mm VESA support included for alternative mounting


Why choose this monitor:

The Dell U2518D(x) is a well-packaged monitor with a slick but unassuming design. The 25″ screen and 2560 x 1440 resolution provides a pleasing pixel density, providing a good level of detail, clarity and work space for a rang eof tasks. The exceptionally well-calibrated IPS-type panel delivers a stunning range of rich and natural-looking colours, with strong colour consistency and excellent sRGB gamut coverage. The very light matte screen surface also aids the clarity and vibrancy of the image, ensuring it doesn’t have the graininess associated with stronger matte screen surfaces. This is a capable monitor for both work and play – including photography and design work where colour accuracy is important. Meanwhile, the flicker-free backlight and additional features such as ‘ComfortView’ and ‘Color Temp. 5000K’ settings (reduced blue light output) help provide a comfortable viewing experience. This is particularly useful in the evening, where exposure to blue light should be minimised to aid a restful night’s sleep.

Not only is the colour quality and pixel density pleasing for gamers, but the combination of low input lag and good overall pixel responsiveness ensure a pleasant 60Hz experience. The exceptionally slender ‘InfinityEdge’ bezels at all sides increase suitability for a multi-monitor setup, but are also considered attractive for a single-monitor setup. The level of ergonomic flexibility and port selection tick further boxes. The monitor also ‘supports HDR’, but it is made quite clear in our review that this is not a selling point in this particular case. Note: The U2518Dx is exactly the same monitor as the U2518D, bundled with an HDMI cable instead of a MiniDP-DP cable.

Samsung C24FG73

Samsung C24FG73

 

Good for:

High frame rate gaming on the PC, movies, all-round desktop use.

Panel used:

Samsung Curved VA (23.5″, 70-144Hz variable with Adaptive-Sync).

Screen surface:

Light matte with smooth texture, delivering an essentially grain-free image whilst cutting down on glare.

Additional specifications:

  • 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) resolution
  • PWM-free (flicker-free) Quantum Dot LED backlight (sRGB+ colour gamut)
  • 1ms MPRT response time
  • DP 1.2a (supports Adaptive-Sync), 2 HDMI 1.4a ports (supports Adaptive-Sync), 3.5mm audio out
  • Fully adjustable stand with hinged-arm design. VESA adaptor plate included.


Why choose this monitor:

The Samsung C24FG73 features a curved VA panel – the curve is noticeable but still quite subtle. This helps add to the immersion when gaming or watching films without making the experience feel unnatural, even on the desktop. The strong contrast performance (3000:1) and smooth and light screen surface combine to provide a good deep look to darker shades with brighter shades that ‘pop’ out nicely. The colour gamut is generous, aided by Quantum Dot technology, but not excessive (beyond sRGB, but not wide gamut like Adobe RGB). This delivers a vibrant but quite faithful shade representation. Movies, games and images on the desktop are given a vivid yet natural look. The colour consistency is as good as we’ve seen from a VA model of this size, too, meaning that this vibrancy is maintained to a good degree throughout the screen.

A key headliner for this model is the responsiveness, with 144Hz refresh rate plus support for Adaptive-Sync (70-144Hz, but LFC also supported for lower frame rates). Fortunately the panel isn’t bound by the usual pixel responsiveness restrictions that accompany VA technology, with plenty of rapid pixel transitions and no obvious ‘smeary trailing’ at high refresh rates. There is a bit of overshoot (inverse ghosting), particularly at around 100Hz, so we’d advise referring to the review for full analysis of this. Input lag is also very low and a highly effective strobe backlight setting called ‘Impulsive Scanning’ also features to offer extremely low levels of perceived blur. Because the strobe backlight function works on Nvidia cards and the performance on this monitor is best at high frame rates (ideally 144fps) we’d recommend this equally to Nvidia and AMD GPU users.
