    is it really that bad though? I've got a 1440p and was legitimately thinking of perhaps going back down. Kind of makes me sad that I can't get stable fps in some games, kind of makes the upgrade of a GPU less frequen as well no?

    Does anyone outside marketing departments really believe that, on a 27" monitor?

    I know someone who got a 1080p 27" and decided it was a mistake. My personal limit is 24" for 1080. I currently run 27" 4K which you might say is pointless however once you've been spoiled by high PPI mobile phone and tablet displays, you start to notice just how pixelated standard resolution monitors are.

    Another thing I've noticed is that displaying non native resolutions has got loads better since the early days of LCD so it may be worth trying 1080p on your existing display and seeing how it looks. It must be said, it does very much depend on what you're viewing. Fast paced games with loads of movement are less likely to suffer in my experience.

    At the end of the day, when all is said and done and when the clichés have all been thoroughly abused.... it's all subjective anyway. It doesn't matter that I would notice the large pixels on a 27" 1080p display and that it would get to me if you don't notice it and it doesn't bother you. All it means is you have saved yourself some cash.

    I'm surprised, do you have Freesync or Gsync?

    I must admit I went 27" 1440p more for work than for gaming as I can cram an awful lot of text on screen, but it does make games look pretty.

    I went with 28" for 4k and wish I'd gone bigger but for scaled productivity I can't fault it, and I've got used to it for everything else.

    Knowing how long term an investment it is to most people, I just couldn't justifying splashing out on a 1080p screen these days unless an exisitng monitor had gone totally tits up and I was desperate.

    Yet another boring "gaming" display that lacks the features I want. Probably expensive too.

    OSD Sidekick:You can now control the monitor through this software and control your OSD with mouse and keyboard. A much easier way to adjust your monitor.
    Actually that's not a bad feature, beats trying to use a titchy joystick or fiddle with buttons placed in awkward places.

    Well the Aorus AD27QD is 1440p at 27" 144Hz IPS for probably around the same price as these, if not less, and still comes with all that tactical overlay gubbins.

    It cannot be a tactical monitor without PALS/MOLLE, picatinny rails, laser sights, IR reflective paint, and all the other gubbins!
