buonasera NCX scrivo dalla italia volevo un consiglio  su quale di questi monitor acquistare   Viewsonic VX2458 -Iiyama Prolite XUB2492HSU-B1  -Philips 246E7QDSW - AOC 24V2Q - Philips 245C7QJSB

The English language is used on this site since it is the only one I understand.  I used a translator to hopefully understand what you are asking, which is what to buy out of the four monitors listed, which is a question I can't easily answer since the Viewsonic uses a 144hz TN panel while the other three use 60-75hz IPS panels. 

You're going to have to decide if viewing angles and image quality is worth sacrificing to acquire 144hz from the iiyama which uses a TN panel.  I would buy the AOC since it natively supports 75hz, but make sure the gamma to mode 2.

Asus VG279Q

Added the Measurements by Belgium Hardware to my Best Reviewed Flicker Free 27" 1080p IPS/PLS Monitors and Best Reviewed Flicker Free 144hz 1080p Monitors buying guides.

Fully adjust-able matte 1920x1080 144hz AUO AHVA panel with AMD Free-Sync (48-144hz), Displayport, Dual-Link DVI (120hz), HDMI, 3.5mm Audio In & Out.  The Asus can fully covers, as well as slightly over-saturates colors of the HDTV/REC 709 and sRGB (SDR) color spaces, and has accurate color presets overall (default=Game Visual MOBA), which can be marginally improved by setting the Low Blue Light Filter to Level 1.  As expected, the Asus has very fast pixel response times with minimal overshoot, even when using the default overdrive (Trace Free 60) setting, and has negligible input lag (4-5ms measured by Playwares with the SMT Tool 2.0 vs a CRT).

Eizo CG279X

Added the Review by PRAD  to my Best Reviewed Flicker Free 27" 1440p AHVA/IPS/PLS buying guide.

Matte, fully wide gamut and fully adjustable 2560x1440 resolution LG AH-IPS panel with a built in colorimeter, Displayport, Dual-Link DVI, HDMI, USB-C, 2x USB 2.0 (back), 2x USB 3.0 (side) and a 16 bit 3D LUT.  The Eizo has very accurate color presets aside from the DCI-P3 mode which has very high, 2.6 preset gamma which causes black crush, but it is important to note that the point of monitors like the CG279X is to be hardware calibrated with an accurate colorimeter, and used for work with programs which support color management.  The Eizo has slow pixel response times, but fairly low input lag (9ms) for a professional display.


Philips 276E8VJSB

Added the Review by PC Lab PL to my Best Reviewed Flicker Free 27" 4-5K AHVA/IPS/PLS buying guide.

The Philips uses a very accurate 4K fake bezel or frame-less LG AH-IPS panel with Displayport, 2x HDMI 2.0 and a 3.5mm Audio Out jack.

Un-Calibrated vs Calibrated

In this post the Free-Sync mode, which in my opinion is the mode important preset-mode, is compared to my calibration which does not apply to the Free-Sync mode which must be selected to activate Free-Sync with the Xbox One and Xbox One X.

The preset green dominance is quite apparent in this comparison which contains many grey shades.  The grey dominance may seem gross, but it is quite normal for affordable monitors up to 600$ US.
