Acer RG270

Added the Revivew by Tom's Hardware to my Best Reviewed Flicker Free 27" 1080p IPS/PLS Monitors buying guide.

Matte 1080p IPS with 48-75hz AMD Free-Sync, Displayport, HDMI 1.4, 3.5mm Audio Out and VGA and nearly perfect preset color accuracy.


Added the Review by Les Numeriques (low preset gamma; set gamma to 2) to my Best Reviewed Flicker Free 144hz 1080p Monitors buying guide.

The C27G1 (1800 R curve) is significantly more accurate out of the box than the C24G1, and its sRGB mode has a preset red dominance instead of the slight out-of-the-box blue dominance, locks the brightness controls, is very bright (242cdm/2) and drops the contrast to a pathetic 485:1. The C24G1 has 3.-35K contrast while the C27G1 has 5,000:1.

Both monitors can be considered delay free (<4ms Leo Bodnar Device top screen measurements by Hardware Info and SMT Tool measurements by PC Monitors), and have decent overdrive without strong overshoot, but suffer from the typical dark color and shade transition smearing*.

IMO the overdrive of these panels is decent good enough, especially when considering the image quality downsides of faster TN panels.

Due to the pixel layout of these panels text is a bit blurrier; PCM mentions this here:

BenQ EX3203R

Added the Review by Belgium Hardware 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.

LG 27UK850

Added the 27UK850 Review by PRAD to my Best Reviewed Flicker Free 27" 4-5K AHVA/IPS/PLS buying guide.

Matte with 40-60hz AMD Free-Sync, 2x USB 3.0, USB-C, LG Tru Color Pro (hardware calibration which requires a colorimeter to use), and a height adjustable stand.

Philips 328P6VUBREB

Added the Review by PC Monitors to my Best Reviewed Flicker Free 32" 4K AHVA/IPS/PLS buying guide.

Matte 4K VA panel with wide gamut HDR panel, HDR 600 certification, very accurate color presets, a high quality sRGB mode which does not under-saturate colors and high (28ms) input lag.  It has a matte black bezel (superior to glossy black but still decreases the perceived black depth compared grey bezels), a fully adjustable stand, Displayport, 2x HDMI 2.0, USB-C, 3.5mm Audio Out, 4x USB 3.0 and RJ-45 Ethernet power port.
