Best Reviewed Flicker Free 27" 4-5K AHVA/IPS/PLS

Always purchase from retailers with hassle free return and exchange policies.  Read retailers return and exchange policies before buying.[/center]

My recommendations are based off of testing more than 60 monitors and reading in-depth reviews from over fifteen reviewers across the realm.

Best Monitor Review Sites: Monitor Review Resource Center

Many monitors not found in this thread likely perform well, but it makes more sense to buy well reviewed monitors, and I like having sources to refer to, even though I do not always agree with them.

If a monitor is not mentioned it is because it has not been reviewed properly, been reviewed at all or is mediocre.  All monitors suffer from regular quality control issues: back-light bleeding and pixel issues (dead and stuck pixels).

Recommendations are PWM or Flicker Free:

I do not recommend monitors which use low LED PWM Dimming frequencies since they ruin motion clarity and cause some people to suffer from health issues like head aches and eyestrain.  LED PWM Dimming Side Effects.

Viewsonic VP2772

The VP2772 should only be purchased by those who need a wide gamut monitor.  The VP2772 is currently the best wide 27" gamut options under 1000$ since both the Asus PA279Q and Dell U2713H suffer from the same, very obvious overshoot ghosting which can even ruin normal desktop use, and are not as good

The Viewsonic uses a fake frame-less (all frame-less monitors have perceived black depth ruining inner black bezels) matte 27" 2560x1440 LG IPS panel with a non-height adjustable stand, but it is VESA compliant.  It has Displayport, HDMI, Mini Displayport, a 3.5mm audio output, outstanding color preset accuracy and above average contrast (950:1 measured by PRAD).

Review by Toms Hardware

The Viewsonic XG2703-GS uses a 27" 2560x1440 resolution 8 Bit AUO AHVA panel (M270DAN02.3), a nearly grain free matte coating, has excellent color presets, a nice dark matte black bezel which increases the perceived black depth, very fast pixel response times and a 165hz refresh rate. G-Sync (compatible Nvidia GPU required) works from 30-165hz/FPS, and eliminates screen tearing and lag.  The Viewsonic XG2703-GS also has ULMB (back-light strobing, excellent 1080p scaling unlike the Asus PG279Q, and superior 60hz overdrive with less overshoot ghosting than the Acer XB271HU.  The Viewsonic XG2703 is the best all around 27" 1440p AHVA 144-165hz monitor with Nvidia G-Sync for PC and console gaming, and watching 1080p content.

Samsung S27D850T

Review by NCX
Review by PRAD

The S27D850T has the most accurate (best) color presets out of all of the 27" AHVA/IPS/PLS monitors I reviewed, but is only LED PWM Dimming/Flicker free down to 30% Brightness (172cdm/2) and the black+silver matte bezel ruins the perceived black depth and makes black look uneven.  Black looks much darker near the bottom of the display compared to the silver bezel, and much lighter from the top to about 30% from the bottom as well as light compared to the matte black bezel.

Qnix QX2710 Multi Hot

It's the same as the QX2710R, but has a nice brushed dark matte grey bezel which vastly increases the perceived black depth while the QX2710R uses a glossy black bezel which ruins the perceived black depth, but has more inputs and costs more.  I recommend buying the Multi Hot over the others since I have tested it.

It can be overclocked to 87hz via Dual-Link DVI without skipping or dropping frames.

Qnix QX2710R


Review by Playwares
.

The updated DP Multi True 10 is much better than the original since it is actually PWM/Flicker free, has double the contrast, faster and actually competitive pixel response times, and more accurate colour presets.  It is one of the best budget, multi-input matte 1440p options, but the slightly more expensive Asus PB278Q/PB278QR is better.  The QX2710R has faster pixel response times (less ghosting) and higher contrast than the QHD2730R, but the QHD2730R uses a PLS panel with less glow.

Qnix QX2730R

Review by Playwares.

The QHD2730R is similar to the QX2710R, but uses a PLS panel.  It's a great budget multi-input matte choice, but the slightly more expensive Asus PB278Q/PB278QR is better.

The Lenovo uses a fake frame-less matte 27" 1440p matte AH-IPS panel with Displayport and HDMI, negligible input lag, fast pixel response times on par with 60hz competitors, and excellent color presets.  The Lenovo is not VESA compliant and has a fake frame-less casing with an inner black bezel which reduces the perceived black depth.

The Z27x uses a glow free, matte, 8 Bit +FRC LG AH-IPS panel which does not have a colour compensation feature like the Eizo CX271 and Eizo CG277.  The HP can be hardware calibrated by editing an XML file, but to the same degree as the Eizo and NEC which makes them much better choices for colour accuracy related work.  The HP is a better choice for multi-media use though, especially gaming since it has lower input lag than the NEC PA272W and less ghosting than the Eizos.

The Hazro HZ27WiDP uses an 8 Bit +FRC LG-AH-IPS panel with Plasma Deposition Coating, and was reviewed by TFT Central.  It performs like the Crossover 27QW DP, but has an 842hz PWM frequency, two year warranty and can be purchased from retailers with hassle free return and exchange policies in the UK.  I don't know if the 842hz PWM frequency is high enough to neither ruin motion clarity nor cause eyestrain like lower frequencies do.

The Dell U2715H has good color presets, fast pixel response times, minimal overshoot and a low delay like the Asus PB278QR and LG 27MB85R-B.  The U2715H is overpriced uses LG's frame-less casing which is not actually frame-less.  Frame-less monitors have inner black bezels which ruin the perceived black depth and make dark content look a bit washed out, just like glossy black and matte black bezels do.  Example: notice how light the black letter box bars look compared to the monitors inner black bezel.

The Dell U2717D has worse color presets than the U2715H and many competitors, has decent contrast (900:1), fast pixel response times, but suffers from overshoot ghosting and a 20ms delay.  The U2717D is essentially an overpriced version of the Qnix QHD2730R with a height adjustable stand and better warranty, but worse color presets, overshoot ghosting and no overclocking. 

The U2717D is uses LG's fake frame-less casing which is not actually frame-less.  Frame-less monitors have inner black bezels which decrease the perceived black depth and make dark content look a bit washed out, just like glossy black and matte black bezels do.  Example: notice how light the black letter box bars look compared to the monitors inner black bezel.

The U2717D reviewed by Les Numeriques has lower input lag and better color presets which indicates to me that Les Numeriques reviewed a newer revision.

Review by PC Monitors

The Dell UP2716D is the first decent wide gamut monitor Dell has released.  The UP2716D has low input lag and minimal overshoot ghosting unlike its predecessor the U2713H which suffered from excessive overshoot ghosting.  As expected the sRGB mode has locked color controls and is inferior to that of a normal monitor.  The UP2716D is a good choice for those who need a wide gamut monitor, intend to calibrate it, and use it with programs which support color management.  The UP2716D is a waste of money for gaming and regular use (text, email, movies, coding, ect).
