    Re: QOTW: Which monitor(s) are you using?

    Element Gaming 1440p 144hz 27" - It's a great monitor, other than the freesync implementation (now disabled in my settings) which with my GTX1080 is a little funky at times and drops out / flickers - can't complain though, since it got me onto 1440p 144hz for £200!

    Re: QOTW: Which monitor(s) are you using?

    As per my signature, an Acer XB271HU (27" 2560x1440 IPS-type with G-Sync).

    I've had the monitor for 10 months now and I'm reasonably satisfied. Black level could be better and there's a bit more "IPS glow" than I'd like, but I've gotten used to it. At least it doesn't have the typical issues of other monitors using the same panel, such as backlight bleeding, hopeless screen uniformity and dust inside the panel.

    Before that, a Dell 2209WA. The monitor which in my opinion kicked off the affordable IPS monitors.

    Re: QOTW: Which monitor(s) are you using?

    Viewsonic XG2703-GS 1440p@165hz IPS/AHVA Gsync supported. This monitor has been supremely wonderful and the best I've ever owned. The 1440p@165hz is perfectly matched up to the performance output of my GTX 1080 Ti, resulting in the most butter smooth gaming experience I've ever had.

    Dell Ultrasharp 24" 1920 x 1200 IPS. Use it as an external display for work laptop as well as for the desktop. It's a good size for CAD. I don't game. Tempted by a 30" 4k monitor but can't justify the expenditure and would probably need a better Quadro card as well.

    I've got the Predator XB281HK. Likewise reasonably pleased with it. Wish I'd gone with an IPS panel now to be honest as I tend to more production work on it than gaming. G-Sync ok as I've got Nvidia GPU but not convinced its worth the premium or superior to other Freesync set ups on the red side of things.

    2 Asus 1080p 60fps monitors, 1 23" ips, the other 24" TN. Went for budget options since at the time more features were more expensive or you miss out on something anyway.

    Re: QOTW: Which monitor(s) are you using?

    Main monitor - Acer Predator Z35P. It has G-Sync so is lovely for gaming. 120Hz refresh rate for good responses. 3440 x 1440 resolution for excellent workflow. And a VA panel gives it cracking deep blacks.

    Secondary monitor - ASUS ROG PG279Q. Also has G-Sync. 165Hz so even better for response times. 2560 x 1440 resolution, so matches the height of my Z35P. IPS panel for excellent colour reproduction.

    I love them both. Wouldn't swap them for anything else at the moment.

    Acer Predator X34A 21:9 Ultra Widescreen; I've owned it for 2.5 years and loved every minute of using it.

    Re: QOTW: Which monitor(s) are you using?

    I am using an Iiyama Prolite B2875UHSU. Got it a few month back when we moved house.

    Really nice screen that is 4k, plenty inputs and additional USB ports. The 28" screen size is large enough for me as my eyes aren't what they were 10 years ago!

    Granted it only supports upto 60Hz at 1080p and above but it does have AMD Freesync connected via the Display Port and HDR which suits me just fine.

    Been using the HP ZR24w since it was released in 2010, its clocked up almost 24,200 hours of on time.

    Suits me for everything I want to do, which includes gaming.

    I have an AOC Q3277pqu, 32", 1440p and AMVA. Had it for three years now, very happy with it and will likely keep it until it dies.
