AOC CQ32G1

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

Matte curved 2560x1440 144hz VA panel with a Displayport, 2x HDMI and a height adjustable stand.  It's far less accurate and has half the contrast ratio (2,500:1) as the 1080p C32G1 (5,000:1) which also has slightly faster pixel response times or less ghosting the the best overdrive/response time setting (Medium) is used.  Playwares unit came with slightly too low preset gamma (2.05 average) which was improved by setting the Gamma to Mode 3.


Asus VG279Q

Added the Review by Playwares 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).


BenQ GW2480

Added the Review by Les Numeriques to my Best Reviewed Flicker Free 24-25" 1080p IPS/PLS Monitors

Matte 1920x1080 IPS with Displayport, HDMI, VGA and 3.5mm Audio In & Out.  It's fairly accurate but has low sRGB color space coverage compared to the best options, and has high preset gamma which averages around 2.4, but can be improved by changing the Gamma.


Dell S2719DM

Added the Review by Les Numeriques to my Best Reviewed Flicker Free 27" 1080p IPS/PLS Monitors

Matte 1920x1080 fake* four-sided border/frame-less IPS with AMD Free-Sync (48-75hz range), 2x HDMI, 3.5mm Audi Out and fairly accurate color presets hampered by the skewed and slightly too high gamma curve.

*Four sided border/frame-less monitors have a thin inner black bezel which reduces the perceived black depth.


HP DreamColor Z27x G2 Studio (2NJ08AT)

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

Fully adjustable matte 2560x1440 wide gamut IPS with Displayport, 2x HDMI, USB-C, 3.5mm Audio Out, 4x USB 3.0 and USB-C.  The HP suffers from a slight preset green tint, has nearly 2.4 average gamma and high input lag (35.7ms Leo Bodnar device measurements).


Gigabyte AORUS AD27QD

Added the Measurements and Review by Belgium Hardware, and the  Review by IT Hardware PL to my Best Reviewed Flicker Free 144hz 1440p Monitors, and Best Reviewed Flicker Free 27" 1440p AHVA/IPS/PLS buying guides.

Fully adjustable matte 144hz 2560x1440 Innolux IPS with AMD Free-Sync (48-144hz range) Displayport, 2x HDMI, 2x USB 3.0 and 3.5mm Audio In & Out.  The Gigabyte has very accurate preset color accuracy, but has a very minor preset pink tint, and slightly slower pixel response (some transitions are 2-3ms slower) times, and significantly more overshoot ghosting (20%) than 144-165hz 1440 AUO AHVA panels (marketed as IPS) Belgium Hardware tested such as the Acer XB271HU (15%), Asus MG279Q (5%), and Asus PG279Q (3%).

The Gigabyte over-saturates SDR (130% or 30% over-saturation of the HDTV/REC709 and sRGB color spaces used by non-HDR content) colors by default since it has a semi-wide gamut panel with DCI-P3 (HDR) color space coverage (>92%) and capability (>400cdm/2 brightness), but it does have a good sRGB mode to prevent over-saturation.

Viewsonic XG240R

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

Fully adjust-able matte 144hz 1920x1080 AUO TN panel with AMD Free-Sync (48-144hz from all inputs), Displayport, 2x HDMI (120hz), 2x USB 3.0 and 3.5mm Audio Out.  The Viewsonic has accurate 60hz image quality, but suffers from a significant gamma drop (60hz 2.3 to 1.9 at 144hz), and loss of color and shade accuracy and vibrancy when set to 144hz.  Setting the Gamma to 2.6, and setting the Gaming Settings to Custom 1 and 2 (best) improve the 144hz gamma.  The Viewsonic has negligible input lag, balanced overdrive (fast pixel response times and minimal overshoot) with the Faster Response Time OD setting, but has a perceived black depth decreasing matte black bezel versus the XG2401's perceived black depth increasing matte grey bezel.
