Acer Nitro XV273K

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

The Acer XV273K has an accurate 144hz (achievable only when connected with 2x Displayport cables) 3840x2160 or 4K matte wide gamut AUO HAVA panel which can cover 97% of the DCI-P3 color space, and can fully cover the sRGB color space to prevent over-saturation when the sRGB mode is available.  It has a fully adjustable stand, a monitor hood, 2x Displayport, 2x HDMI 2.0,4x USB 3.0 and a 3.5mm Audio Out.


AOC C24G1

Added the Review by Trusted Reviews to my Best Reviewed Flicker Free 144hz 1080p Monitors buying guide.

The C24G1's (1500 R curve) preset color accuracy is decent, but can be improves significantly by selecting the sRGB mode, but it locks the brightness controls and is very bright (220cmd/2). 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 CG241 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:

MSI Optix MPG27CQ

Added the Review by PC Lab PL to my Best Reviewed Flicker Free 144hz 1440p Monitors buying guide.

Curved semi-wide gamut (22% over-saturation or 122% sRGB) matte 144hz VA panel with AMD Free-Sync (48-144hz range) 2x USB 3.0, Displayport, 2x HDMI 2.0, 2x USB 3.0, a height adjustable stand and a fake frame-less casing with a perceived black depth reducing inner black bezel.  It's pretty accurate aside from the gamma which is a bit high in the 0-10% white range resulting in a bit of black crush.  The Pro mode is the most accurate color preset.


Viewsonic VX2458-mhd

Review by PRAD to my Best Reviewed Flicker Free 144hz 1080p Monitors buying guide.

The Viewsonic uses a very accurate matte 144hz 1080p AUO TN panel with AMD Free-Sync (48-144hz range) with Displayport (48-144hz Free-Sync range), 2x HDMI (48-120hz Free-Sync range) and 3.5mm Audio Out.  Set the Response Time to Extreme to speed up the pixel response times without obvious overshoot ghosting.   Set the Response Time to Extreme to speed up the pixel response times without obvious overshoot ghosting.
