Curved VA panels have slightly less sharp text than non-curved panels.


Samsung C27HG70

Measurements and Review by Belgium Hardware

Review by Trusted Reviews

Curved matte 2560x1440 144hz (48-144hz AMD Free-Sync range; limited to 100hz over HDMI) VA panel with a height adjustable stand, Displayport, 2x HDMI 2.0 and 3.5mm Audio In & Out, and 2x USB 3.0.  The Samsung uses a very accurate semi-wide gamut S-VA panel also offers decent HDR color space coverage (95% DCI-P3), and it comes with a fully adjustable stand and perceived black depth increasing dark matte grey bezel.  Setting the Response Time to Faster and Fastest actives back-light strobing or blur reductio which reduces motion blur, but may cause some people to suffer from health issues like headaches and/or eyestrain.  It has slower pixel response times than the 1080p C2xFG73 monitors, but they suffer from green and purple overshoot ghosting.


Samsung C32HG70

Review by Sweclockers
Review by TFT Central

Curved matte 2560x1440 144hz VA panel with AMD Free-Sync, back-light strobing and a perceived black depth increasing matte grey bezel.  It uses LED PWM Dimming or Flicker when the brightness is set below 70/100 which TFT Central measured to be a very bright 250cdm/2. Back-light strobing is activated when the Response Time setting is switched from Standard to Faster, and Fastest.  The Samsung is fairly accurate, but Sweclockers unit came with high preset gamma which averages around 2.36 which causes black crush or loss of detail in dark scenes.  Changing the gamma to mode 2 brings the gamma closer to averaging around 2.2 and increases the accuracy, as well as reduces black crush.


Samsung C27JG50QQI

Review by Dmitry Vasiliev

The Samsung uses a curved standard gamut VA panel without Free-Sync in a fake border/frame-less casing which has a perceived black depth reducing inner black bezel versus the older C27HG70's perceived black depth increasing dark matte grey bezel.  The C27JG50QQI is fairly accurate, but can't fully cover the SDR color spaces (HDTV/REC 709 & sRGB) which prevents it from displaying colors as accurately and vibrantly as the C27GH70's sRGB emulation mode.


Samsung S27R750QEI

Review by =DEAD= (low 1.95 preset gamma)
Rtings (25ms delay @60hz)

Non-curved and non-semi-wide gamut matte 144hz 2560x1440 Samsung VA panel with HDMI, mini-Displayport and USB 2.0.  The unit =DEAD= tested is fairly accurate aside from the low preset gamma which can be improved by selected Gamma Mode 2.  It suffers from dark scene banding, but it is not nearly as bad as the Dell S2417DG, S2716DG and ViewSonic XG2402.  It has high input lag at 60hz (25ms; Rtings measurement) for a monitor.

ViewSonic

ViewSonic XG2703-GS

Matte 2560x1440 144hz AHVA panel with Nvidia G-Sync and back-light strobing discontinued in 2018.

Spoiler (hover to show)

ViewSonic XG3240C

Matte curved 144hz 2560x1440 wide gamut VA panel with AMD Free-Sync and >89% HDR color space coverage and accurate color presets, but no sRGB or REC 709 mode to prevent vast over-saturation of non-HDR content.

Review by Trusted Reviews

Quote from: Trusted Reviews
when it comes to the oversaturated colours, this is largely quite subtle but every now and then colours look just a bit brighter than they really should. In particular, there can be a red blotchiness to caucasian skin that doesnít look natural and green colour such as foliage in bright sunshine can look a little too vibrant. To be clear, this by no means ruins the overall image quality of the display but for sticklers for colour accuracy, it does knock this display down a peg or two, and means itís not really suitable for content creation.


ViewSonic XG3240C

Review by =DEAD=

Matte curved 144hz 2560x1440 wide gamut VA panel with AMD Free-Sync (48-144hz), 2x Displayport, 2x HDMI 2.0 and 3.5mm Audio Out.  The wide gamut panel is quite accurate gamma and RGB level preset wise, but does not have a properly functioning sRGB mode resulting in the over-saturation of SDR (HDTV/REC 709 and sRB) color by 25-30% and can only cover 86% of the HDR (DCI-P3) color space, as well as fails to meet any of the criteria required to achieve the HDR standard.  It suffers from a bit of banding when displaying the Powered By Dawn Engine image.  The Response Time settings do not work and it has slower pixel response times than many competitors, but does not suffer from overshoot ghosting.


ViewSonic XG270QG

Review by PC Monitors

Matte, fully adjust-able, 165hz, HDR/wide gamut, 2560x1440 resolution IPS* panel with G-Sync and 120hz ULMB (back-light strobing) over Displayport.  The ViewSonic XG270QG has Displayport, HDMI 1.4, 3x USB 3.0 and 3.5mm Audio Out.  The XG270QG is very accurate aside from a slight warm preset green tint, and can fully cover the SDR (HDTV/REC 709 & sRGB) color spaces, but has average contrast (850:1) and over-saturates the color of non DCI-P3 content (HDTV/REC 709 & sRGB) since it uses a wide gamut and HDR capable panel without a properly functioning sRGB emulation mode.  The ViewSonic XG270QG has negligible input lag and fast pixel response times for a non-TN panel at all refresh rates with the response time is set to the Standard (no overshoot) and Advanced (faster but with minor overshoot) settings.

Viotek

Viotek GFT27DB

Review by Techspot

Matte 144hz 2560x1440 semi-wide gamut and 8 bit AUO TN panel with low preset gamma (2.04 average), a preset blue dominance and wide gamut color over-saturation of non-HDR content since the Viotek lacks an SDR color space (HDTV/REC 709 or sRGB) emulation mode.
