Crossover 2795QHD

Overclocking Guide for AMD & Nvidia Graphics Cards.

[H]ard Forum Thread

It uses a matte 2560x1440 LG LM270WQ1-SLC1 AH-IPS panel (proof).

The Crossover 2795QHD uses a 27" 2560x1440 resolution 8 Bit matte LG AH-IPS panel and can be overclocked.  The Crossover 2795 does not use LED PWM Dimming unlike the Qnix/X-Star monitors, has excellent colour presets, high contrast and fast pixel response times.  Its main downside is the use of a glossy black bezel which ruins the perceived black depth (Microsoft Paint Example & Monitor Example). Unfortunately, most Korean monitors use glossy black bezels, as do expensive monitors like the Acer XB270HU :(

Most versions (there are at least 3 for both the glossy and matte PLS versions) of the Qnix/X-Star use LED PWM Dimming which ruins motion clarity (example) and cause some people to suffer from health issues like headaches and eyestrain.  PWM Side EffectsBlur Busters 60hz vs. 120hz.  The 2795 QHD has more accurate colours than all glossy Qnix/X-Stars (especially the new 07 glossy panel which uses PWM) and faster pixel response times/less ghosting than all PLS Qnix/X-Stars.

Crossover 27100Q Product Page

The 27V, 27100Q and 27 Fast 144 are Flicker Free, can be considered delay free (3-5ms delay measured with the SMT Tool by Playwares), use AHVA panels (AUO's version of IPS), have fast pixel response times, excellent color presets and support AMD Free-Sync (assume 40-75hz or 30-90hz with the 27 Fast 144) or 75 (27V), 100hz (27100Q) or 144hz (27 Fast 144) when connected to Nvidia cards. It might be possible to increase the Free-Sync range with the mod mentioned in this thread.

Crossover 27 Fast 144

Review by Playwares

The Crossover 27 Fast 144 uses a 27" 2560x1440 resolution 8 Bit AUO AHVA panel, a nearly grain free matte coating, has excellent colour presets, a matte black and silver bezel, fast pixel response times and a 144hz refresh rate. Free-Sync (AMD GPU required) works from 30-90fps, eliminates tearing and lag.

BenQ GW2765HT

The GW2765HT uses a semi-glossy or nearly grain free matte coated 8 Bit +FRC (10 Bit) AHVA panel.  It has decent colour presets and overdrive (AMA High), but it can't match the AOC Q2770PQU and BenQ BL2710PT's (once the gamma is changed from mode 4 to mode 2) colour preset accuracy.  It also has slightly slower pixel response times and a tiny bit of overshoot compared to the BL2710PT as well as the typical frame of input lag.  When not placed in very bright rooms, the glossy black bezel ruins the perceived black depth and makes black look greyish and washed out by comparison.

Review by Tom's Hardware

The BenQ PD2700Q uses a matte 2560x1440 8 Bit +FRC AUO AHVA panel encased in a nice sparkly and coarsely surfaced matte grey plastic casing which has a fully adjust-able stand.  The PD2700Q has excellent preset color accuracy, fast pixel response times with minimal overshoot ghosting, negligible input lag and excellent resolution scaling which is good for those who play or watch both 720p (Xbox 360 & PS3) and 1080p content.

The Asus MG279Q uses a 27" 2560x1440 resolution 8 Bit AUO AHVA panel, a nearly grain free matte coating, has excellent colour presets when the Racing mode is selected, a high quality matte grey bezel which vastly increases the perceived black depth, fast pixel response times and a 144hz refresh rate.  Free-Sync (AMD GPU required) works from 30-90fps, eliminates tearing and lag, but the has >10ms delay when not set to 144hz.

Asus MX27AQ

The Asus MX27AQ uses a 27" 2560x1440 resolution 8 Bit AUO AHVA panel.  It's quite similar to the Dell U2715H, uses a frame-less casing which has an inner black bezel which ruins the perceived black depth, and like the U2715H, is not as good as the similarly priced LG 27MB85R-B (Example: notice how light the black letter box bars look compared to the monitors inner black bezel).  It tends to come with high preset gamma which causes minor black crush and dulls the colors.

Asus PB278Q

The PB278QR is the same as the PB278Q from 2014 which now uses an AUO AHVA panel and a matte black bezel.  The PB278QR and new PB278Q have worse colour presets and lower contrast than the original PLS version, but do not use LED PWM Dimming (Side Effects) unlike the original, are delay free unlike the majority of multi-input 1440p monitors and have faster pixel response times than the original.

The AOC Q2770PQU and BenQ BL2710PT have better preset colours and perceived black depth, but higher input lag and slightly slower pixel response times.

Asus PG279Q

The Asus PG279Q uses a 27" 2560x1440 resolution 8 Bit AUO AHVA panel, a nearly grain free matte coating, has good colour presets aside from a preset green tint, a matte black bezel and an inner black bezel which decreases the perceived black depth, fast pixel response times and a 144hz refresh rate.  G-Sync (Nvivida GPU required) works from 30-165hz (144hz is the default maximum refresh rate but it can be overclocked to 165hz), eliminates tearing and lag, but Lightboost is limited to 120z.  It also has an HDMI input which allows it to work with external devices like consoles.

Review by PRAD (low preset gamma)
Review by Sweclockers

The AOC AGON AG271QG uses a 27" 2560x1440 essentially grain free matte AUO AHVA panel with 30-165hz Nvidia G-Sync range.  It has a fully adjustable stand, lots of inputs and a matte black bezel.  The AOC has superior 1080p scaling compared to the Asus PG279Q, and superior 60hz overdrive compared to the Acer XB271HU, Asus PG279Q and Viewsonic XG2703-GS, but suffers from more overshoot ghosting or slower pixel response times at 144hz compared to the Asus PG279Q and Viewsonic XG2703-GS, but its performance can still be deemed as excellent.  The AOC AG271QC reviewed by PRAD came with low preset gamma while the rest of the tested units are great.


AOC Q2770PQU

The AOC Q2770PQU uses a semi-glossy (grain free matte) coating and a Samsung PLS panel. =DEAD= thinks (Use Google or Chrome to translate) it is the best matte (semi-glossy), multi-input 1440p monitor aside from the more expensive, glow free Eizo EV2736W. 

The AOC Q2770PQU I reviewed had slightly worse color presets and more corner glow (left side) than the BL2710PT I reviewed, as well as slightly less balanced overdrive.  The AOC's Medium overdrive setting has slightly faster pixel response times than the BL2710PT's AMA High setting, but also suffers from minor overshoot ghosting. 

The AOC Q2770PQU TFT Central Reviewed was glow free like the Eizo EV2736W when viewed head on which proves that AOC is using at least 2 different Samsung PLS panels.  The different panels perform almost identically aside from the glow.

[URLprad.de/new/monitore/test/2017/test-acer-be270uabmipruzx.html]Review by PRAD[/URL]
Review by Toms Hardware

The B270HUA has a fully adjustable stand, a fake frame-less casing with a perceived black depth decreasing inner black bezel, and a 18ms delay (PRAD Displayport oscilloscope measurement) or <11ms PC Mag middle screen Leo Bodnar device measurement (I believe this more accurate), but it has fairly accurate color presets, fast pixel response times with minimal overshoot ghosting (overdrive Extreme is the best), a native 75hz refresh rate, and supports AMD Free-Sync.


Acer H277U

The Acer H277HU uses a 60hz matte 8 bit 2560x1440 frame-less LG AH-IPS panel with good preset color accuracy, lots of inputs, fast pixel response times with minimal overshoot ghosting, but is not VESA compliant, and its frame-less casing has an inner black bezel which ruins its perceived black depth.

Review by Trusted Reviews

Trusted Review's review is not very detailed, but their input lag colorimeter measurements are accurate; the XF270HU can be considered delay free and has accurate color presets like the other 27" 2560x1440 144hz AHVA panels.

The Acer XF270HU uses an essentially grain free matte coated 2560x1440 144hz AUO AHVA panel which is marketed as an IPS panel.  It uses a nice dark matte black bezel (dark grey increases the perceived black depth significantly more but dark matte is preferable to glossy black), has a fully adjust-able stand (portrait mode, height adjustable, ect) and plenty of inputs.

Warning: A few XF270HU owners have claimed that its pixel response times slow down significantly when Free-Sync is enabled as a result of the overdrive setting be reduced.  The XF270HU's overdrive setting is locked when Free-Sync is enabled; it is thought that the overdrive is changed from Normal to Off.

Last Update=July 31st 2017 60-75hz recommendation update in progress.

Always purchase from retailers with hassle free return and exchange policies.  Read retailers return and exchange policies before buying.

My recommendations are based off of testing many similar monitors and reading in-depth reviews.  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.

Only semi-glossy (light matte), glossy and Plasma Deposition coating plus LED PWM Dimming (Side Effects) Free/Super High Frequency using 2560x1440 monitors without really obvious overshoot ghosting, tons of quality control issues and good color presets will make my list.

These are all pretty similar, but the HP Envy 23" is the best glossy option while the Eizo EV2336 is the only semi-glossy/grain-free matte coated option, and best monitor over all since it offers the most accurate and vibrant colours (96% sRGB colour space cover vs 87-92% for the AH-IPS & AD-PLS panels aside from the HP 27CW, 25XW and 27XW).

Lenovo T2224dA: Matte. 
Review by Prohardver

Matte 1080p IPS with a perceived black depth increasing matte grey bezel, Displayport, VGA, a 22ms delay, accurate sRGB preset mode which is limited to 86.3% sRGB color space coverage which is below average result for budget IPS/PLS panels, but normal for 21.5-23" panels.

LG 23MP67: Review by Daywalker.

LG 23MP68VQ: Matte.  The LG has low sRGB color space coverage (89%, on par with IPS/PLS made before 2015; inferior to most reviewed newer 1080p IPS/PLS in terms of color accuracy and vibrancy), but is otherwise an excellent monitor.  Review by Trusted Reviews.

All of the new LG AH-IPS panels are PWM or Flicker free and usually have good colour presets too.

The Dell P series monitors have a matte black bezel which increases the perceived black depth compared to the frame-less monitors inner black bezel.

<1mm Thin Black Vertical Lines:

An issue shared by a few other 24" 1080p IPS/PLS panels is the presence of <1mm thick vertical black lines which span from top to bottom of the panel when viewing some light colors such as light blue and orange. Despite having gamed on the 24 Envy for dozens of hours and looking at dozens of screen shots I did not notice the lines until the issue was pointed out to me by Magical Chicken here. After noticing the vertical lines they cannot be unseen, however I do not find them to be problematic for my uses (frequent console gaming), but this does not mean that others will notice or not notice the lines; results may vary.

PC Monitors also noticed the vertical black lines on the following monitors:
