    I went with a 5120 x 1440 and I'll never look back ;)

    Put that power into a wider view imho

    My screen almost covers my whole viewing angle and I love it.

    edit: when I sit about 30" away from my screen. I have monitor from the complete range of my horizontal vision left to right. I run almost everything on ultra or better and can usually avg around 100-120 fps on the tough ones.

    If you look at games like FC6, its where a wide screen monitor really shines.

    If you want to multitask, it's not the greatest.

    It depends on the application.

    I have 2x of the LG monitors that you linked. They are simply amazing. You just need to find them in stock.

    Nice !
    Why 2 of these ?

    What about the back light bleeding or what the call it. The horrible light patterns in dark games ?  How awfull is it ?  Noticeable ?

    I have a 27" LG-GL850 HDR 1440/144 monitor and love it. With desktop scaling at 125% it's just perfect for me. It's probably the best monitor I've ever had.

    We just bought the 48" LG 4K C1 OLED TV and it's been awesome.

    My main board is an ASUS TUF X570 and my wife uses an ASUS TUF laptop. I'm very happy with the TUF line of hardware.

    So, I'd say unless user reviews have problems with either model you're good to go.

    I used this site to research the TV and monitors. I don't always go with their recommendation but the info they do provide is detailed and valuable. I think they do pretty excellent research and testing.



    The site doesn't review that exact ASUS TUF model but it does have several other TUF monitors and the VG27AQL1A is highly rated too.

    I wish you the best. There are so many details to wade through when you get into the nitty gritty of monitors and TVs.

    Its always nice if you can take one for a test drive, even if you don't buy it from there ;)

    True but no stores here in poorly Denmark has these kind of monitors for displays and if they have then they are not setup for true "show and tell" and if you ask any workers then they barly know the diff on how its connected and why.

    I once bought a expensive 4 k monitor from asus. It was the first model in 2020 or so and it had dead pixel and awfull back light bleeding. and the supporters just kept swapping the monitor so i got some in RMA that was even worse and broken belzels with no logo and more dead pixels.

    But the main issue is the blb for me :s

    Do you have the GN or GP version ?

    If you get more pixels, you might also want more inches.  Otherwise, it makes the pixels really small.  Some programs will scale well, but some won't.  Trying to play games that don't scale and being stuck with a tiny UI that you can barely see is awkward.

    That can make sense for a first-person perspective that doesn't have very much going on in the vertical direction, or even a close third-person perspective.  Wide and short doesn't make sense for much else, though.

    I have a 27” LG 950.

    it’s a nice monitor. It fits on my desk well, it looks sharp. Backlight bleed isn’t bad - it’s there, and you can see it track with local zone dimming, but not too bad looking at other IPS monitors - the local zones do help a lot.

    144Hz is nice, colors are bright, the monitor itself looks good. I run at 150% scaling: text and static pictures look great. Stuff in motion, including gaming, doesn’t benefit as much from 4K though.

    For the money, if I could have fit an LG C1 OLED I wouldn’t have looked back; I just couldn’t figure out a way to make it fit.

    The 950 HDR works. It is noticeably better than non HDR, but if you’ve ever seen an OLED nothing comes close. That, and there isn’t an awful lot on the PC that really uses HDR.

    Imagine taking it to the bedroom:
    - Honey, this is our new blanket. 
    - Oh how nice. Wait a minute! Are you playing a video game!?

    The smallest C1 is 48" (that's what we have) and it is so awesome. I wanted to try it out as a computer monitor but I don't think my wife would have been thrilled lol.

    I got it just because it does variable refresh and supports all the Xbox Series X video features. It makes a good PC monitor too but it's in the bedroom so we only watch shows on it. I got it right around the time when I thought I'd be able to buy a Series X, go figure.

    Another cool feature about the C1 is that Windows `10/11 can cast to it.

    Is there really a point in having a 4k 27 inch monitor I mean it 27 inch so does it make that huge a difference?

    I mean if you were talking a 32+ inch or so sure but those a 27inch screen really benefit from 4k?

    Is there really such a visual upgrade going from say 1440 to 4k on a 27incher?  Does your eye really see the difference or do you need 20/20 vision?

    It depends a lot on how close you view the monitor from: Pixel density on 4K monitor viewed from 50 cm away would look same as pixel density on 1080p monitor viewed from 1 meter away.

    But on general level, yes there's some difference. It's nothing major, but if you have extra money to spend you might as well upgrade.

    Right but I would assume when talking about 27" monitors you will be sitting at the same distance as it will simply replace your previous monitor.

    I am assuming here peeps are not using monitors or viewing content on them close enough that they can lick the screen! 

    I am getting the impression someone older like me wont see much difference, I really need to drag my backside into town eventually and go look at some monitors in person.  lol

    Samsung based OLED monitor panels are coming out this year. I would opt for one of those if you are at this price range. Even though people are using OLED TVs to great success as monitors, there are a few drawbacks. The TVs typically delay displaying an image to run it through its own filtering. They also typically have some type of Smart OS that is unnecessary with a monitor. Also, the size can be a bit of an issue.

    Your eyes will notice 8k for a 27" monitor. With 4k at 27", I wouldn't bother using something like Anti-Aliasing. It would be an unnecessary step that can be resource intensive.

    Go for 32" or more for 4K.
    I own a 4K Samsung 32" and it's just awesome, for both gaming and also watching movies.

    If you wonder why I don't answer your posts, it's most likely because you are on my block list - so don't waste your time.

    The screen size depends a lot on how large your desk is and how far you're looking at it from.

    Though if the issue is with space, the new curved monitors go up to 1000R (if you'd build a circle it would have radius of 1 000mm). With one of those it's possible to usually get an inch or two larger monitor.

    I started with a 28" 4K monitor and even then I couldn't look at FHD anymore. Sometimes I see a FHD and I vomit in horror. The difference is obvious on any screen size.

    There are some real nice discounts right now on the technology that is about to be second best.

    edit: the expensive stuff is where your going to see the big savings, The common stuff is very competitive. Your only going to see significant savings there if they can't move the product.
