Acer Nitro VG270UP

Added the Review by Alexander Gryzhin (=DEAD=) to my Best Reviewed Flicker Free 144-165hz 1440p Monitors and Best Reviewed Flicker Free 27" 1440p AHVA/IPS/PLS buying guides.

The Acer uses  a fake bezel/frame-less (it has an inner black bezel which reduces the perceived black depth versus a grey bezel) 144hz AUO M270DAN02 AHVA panel (advertised as IPS) with Displayport (Free-Sync + 40-144hz range), HDMI 1.4, HDMI 2.0 (Free-Sync + 40-144hz range) and 3.5mm Audio Out.  It supports AMD Free-Sync (40-144hz range), 120hz back-light strobing (named VRB=Visual Boost Response,  can completely cover the sRGB color space without significant over or under-saturation, and has quite accurate color presets (sRGB mode is a bit better and reduces the brightness to 153cdm/2), above average contrast (1100:1 vs 800:1 for AHVA/IPS/PLS and TN), and the typical balanced preset Acer overdrive (OD: Normal) with very fast pixel response times and minimal to no overshoot ghosting.  =DEAD= did not measure the input lag, but I'd be shocked if the VG270UP can not be considered delay free (<5ms delay) since almost all 144hz AHVA panels are.


Added the Review by TFT Central  to my Best Reviewed Flicker Free 144-165hz 1440p Monitors buying guides.

Matte curved 2560x1440 144hz semi-wide gamut VA panel with a height adjustable stand, 2x Displayport, HDMI 1.4, HDMI 2.0, 2x USB 3.0 and 3.5mm Audio Out.  The AOC is fairly accurate (full sRGB color space coverage with >20% over-saturation), has average contrast for a  VA panel (2,200-2700:1; 2275:1 after TFT Central's calibration), negligible input lag and decent overdrive (for a VA panel) at 144hz when the Strong overdrive setting is enabled which without adding obvious overshoot ghosting, drastically reduces the pixel response times which greatly reduces VA smearing and streaking.  The AOC is a very poor choice for 60hz console gaming since it has  slow pixel response times at 60hz regardless of which overdrive setting is selected, and either suffers from very obvious VA smearing and streaking, or obvious overshoot ghosting if the overdrive setting is turned up.

BenQ EW3270U

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

Matte 4K VA panel with an extended color space and faux HDR support.  The BenQ has a good sRGB mode which prevents over-saturation and does not significantly under-saturate colors like some 4K 32" VA panel using competitors.

Eizo EV3285

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

Matte 32" 4K IPS panel with outstanding preset color accuracy, >1300:1 contrast, a fake frame-less casing with a perceived black depth reducing inner black bezel, a height adjustable stand, Displayport, 2x HDMI 2.0, USB-C and 2x USB 3.0.  Like most Eizo monitors the EV3285 has high, or nearly 2 frames (33ms) of input lag (30ms) delay (top screen Leo Bodnar measurement).
