Monitor Review Update Log 2020 #10 In Progress
« on: July 19, 2020, 11:55:13 pm »
Work In Progress.  27x reviews.

Took time off for family and gaming.  I beat Dishonored, Dying Light 1 (for the 3rd time), Far Cry: Instincts Predator, Gears Of War 4, Gears of War5, Warhammer: Mechanicus and Warhammer Vermintide 2.

Acer Predator XB273GX
Added the Review by =DEAD= to my Best Reviewed Flicker Free 27" 1080p IPS/PLS Monitors and Best Reviewed Flicker Free 240hz Monitors buying guides.

Matte 1920x1080 240hz AUO AHVA panel (M270HAN03. 0 marketed as IPS) with AMD Free-Sync (48-240hz range), Displayport, VRB (120, 144 and 240hz back-light strobing), 2x HDMI 2.0, 3.5mm Audio Out and  4x USB 3.0.  The XB273X has an 1150:1+ contrast ratio (100-530cdm/2 brightness range), can almost fully cover the SDR (HDTV/REC 709 & sRGB) color spaces.  The XB273GX is very accurate, and also has an SRGB mode which gets rid of the preset 10% over-saturation of greens and yellows, but under-saturates color slightly versus the sRGB standard, and locks the brightness controls at a very high 215cdm/2.  The XB273GX's overdrive is preset to the Normal setting which offers very fast (for a non-TN panel) pixel response times with minimal to no overshoot, and is competitive with other brands top performers.

Fully adjust-able, matte, semi-wide gamut, 170hz, 2560x1440 IPS (probably AHVA) panel with AMD Free-Sync, ELMB (back-light strobing), Displayport, 2x HDMI 2.0, 2x USB 3.0 and 3.5mm Audio Out.  The XG279Q has 1100:1 contrast, and is quite accurate DCI-P3 color space coverage (91%; it over-saturates SDR color by over 25% and does not have a good sRGB mode) and colors aside from a minor blue tint (6900k measured color temperature) and slightly too low and downward-sloping gamma which averages around 2.09.  The XG279Q has negligible input lag, great 60hz and 144-170hz overdrive with fast pixel response times and minimal overshoot when the Overdrive 3 setting is used.

BenQ SW321C

Added the Review by PRAD to my

Fully adjust-able, matte, 3840x2160, wide gamut AUO AHVA panel with a perceived black depth increasing matte grey bezel, 16 Bit 3D LUT, BenQ Palette Master Element (hardware calibration), Displayport, 2x HDMI 2.0, USB 3.1, 2, USB 3.0, and SD Card Reader and 3.5mm Audio Out.  The SW321C has a grainy matte coating, mediocre 600 (PRAD) to 680:1 (=DEAD=) contrast ratio, is preset to the Adobe RGB mode which is accurate, covers 94.8% of the aRGB mode, and over-saturates sRGB color by 42%.  The sRGB mode covers 97.6% of the sRGB mode which is very accurate.  The SW321C has a high 28.8ms delay, but fast pixel response times (for a 60hz non-TN panel) when the AMA On overdrive setting is used.
