AOC AG271QG

Added the Review by Trusted Reviews to my

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 AG271QG is the best of the AHVA panels (marketed as IPS) since it has better resolution scaling (vs Asus; important for console use and 1080p) and two different gamma settings to combat the potentially low preset gamma all 144hz 1440p G-Sync AHVA (marketed as IPS) panels can come with, as well as has 2 useful overdrive settings and better build quality than the Asus which has a fake-thin casing with a perceived black depth reducing inner black bezel.  The AOC AG271QC reviewed by PRAD came with low preset gamma while the rest of the tested units are great. 

AOC G2790

Added the Review by Playwares to my Best Reviewed Flicker Free 144hz 1080p Monitors.

Matte 144hz (Displayport & HDMI) AUO TN panel with AMD Free-Sync, Displayport, HDMI x2, VGA, 3.5mm Audio In & Out, 3x UXB 3.0 and a height adjustable stand.  It's pretty accurate, has gamma settings to improve the preset gamma (Gamma 3), and can nearly fully cover the HDTV/REC 709 and sRGB color space.

AOC PDS241

Added the Review by Trusted Reviews to my Best Reviewed Flicker Free 24-25" 1080p IPS/PLS Monitors buying guide.

Matte 1080p IPS with extended color gamut, 1x HDMI, lack of VESA support and no menu.

Asus PG27UQ

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

Matte 4K AHVA panel with 98hz (8 Bit +FRC / 10 bit HDR 4:4:4), Nvidia G-Sync, height adjustable stand, 4x USB 3.0, local dimming and true HDR color.  Proper color (YcBcr 4:4:4) is only supported up to 98hz.  Image quality is degraded at 99-144hz.

Asus VG278Q

Added the Review by Playwares to my Best Reviewed Flicker Free 144hz 1080p Monitors.

ELMB (Extreme Low Motion Blur) is back-light strobing supported at 80-120hz.

Matte 144hz (Displayport & HDMI) AUO TN panel with AMD Free-Sync, Displayport, HDMI x, VGA, 3.5mm Audio In & Out, and a height adjustable stand.  It has high preset gamma (>2.4) which causes black crush (detail loss in dark scenes) and can't fully cover the sRGB color space, but comes close to doing so.

BenQ EX3203R

Added the Review by Trusted Reviews to my Best Reviewed Flicker Free 144hz1440p Monitors buying guide.

Matte curved 120-144hz 2560x1440 VA panel with AMD Free-Sync and fake HDR which causes problems.  It supports 144hz over Displayport with AMD cards, 120hz with Nvidia cards and 100hz over HDMI for both AMD and Nvidia graphics cards.  It suffers from more ghosting (dark color smearing) at 144hz when using Displayport with Nvidia graphics cards.

Samsung C27HG70

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.

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.
