u/astrix_au · 14 pointsr/Monitors

Most VA monitors list 4ms and are not even close as seen on TFTcentral.co.cu reviews. AU Optronics best AHVA IPS rated at 4ms perform just over on average. That is only with working overdrive if overdrive isn't working then it can be approx 8-12ms average.

The PG279Q with overdrive OFF average at 10.3ms, with overdrive set to normal (optimal) it's 5.2 average. If you set the overdrive to high usually the highest setting there is terrible overshoot. The PG279Q with overdrive set to extreme is 4ms but the overshoot would be extreme and horrible to use.


Check it out for yourself here as seen on TFTCentral's review.



I had the XF270HU which had a overdrive bug when using freesync, overdrive wasn't working. The ghosting was horrible you need it, i returned it to Acer.

I now have the Nixeus 27EDG and this monitor has variable overdrive and is simply supperb!

They just started taking pre orders of their new updated version NX-27EDGsV2 This is the "s" version with the basic stand. I would suggest getting the NX-27EDG V2 with a adjustable height stand like most good monitors come with it's an extra $20 for the non "S" version.


NX-27EDGs V2 https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07N4DL9F7/


The Nixeus's overdrive is always on even if it's set to off when using Freesync. They also work with Gsync!

FYI, there is a new model (the v2) that is shipping soon. I suspect we're in a weird in-between time where they cleared out stock of the old one, but the new one isn't quite out yet.

u/doctorchimp · 5 pointsr/Monitors

Man makes me excited for the IPS 144 hertz monitor they have coming out

Nixeus EDG 27" IPS 2560 x 1440 AMD FreeSync Certified 144Hz Gaming Monitor with Base Stand (NX-EDG27S v2) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07N4DL9F7/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_QpYxCbRKYK9Y6

u/Prefix-NA · 5 pointsr/Monitors

Nixeus Edg 27 v2 if you don't need HDR this is literally the best option out there.

IPS 1440p 144hz Adaptive Overdrive 100% sRGB gsync compatable for $400

If you need HDR you have to make some tradeoffs.

The Pixio PX277h is 1440p 144hz(8 bit or 4:2:2 only) 10 bit HDR but can only support 1440p 10 bit 120hz HDR 4:4:4 (HDMI 2.0 limitation), and its been sold out since Nvidia announced Freesync support.

Edit : The Pixio won't allow HDR for Nvidia with Gsync as Nvidia is only Gsync over Displayport.

So the Pixio supports 1440p 144hz 8bit or 1440p 120hz 10 bit HDR.

The Acer Nitro's have bad input lag & g2g but they are options.

u/McMurry · 5 pointsr/Monitors

If I was buying today I would have the Nixeus NX-EDG27S v2 on the top of my list.

BUT the new LG offering that has just started showing its face in public, the LG 27GL850, sounds like it might be an even better option, so if you can wait for a month or two for actual real world reviews to get published, the LG 27GL850 that might be the easy winner if it meets what their marketing states.

u/Sumsero · 5 pointsr/buildapcsales

Nixeus EDG 27 is $400 currently: https://www.amazon.com/Nixeus-FreeSync-Certified-Monitor-NX-EDG27S/dp/B07N4DL9F7

That and the vg271u/vg271up are the only ones I could find on amazon for <=400.

I've personally given up on 1440p 144hz ips monitors. I've researched so many. They all have reviews that mention backlight bleed, ips glow, dead pixels, flickering, whatever the fuck. I'm just done. I doubt TN is so bad like people say on this sub, and TN has stable + cheaper prices, as well as seemingly much better quality assurance.

u/XepherTim · 4 pointsr/buildapcsales

Or a new NX-EDG27S v2 for $399.

u/looncraz · 4 pointsr/Amd

It's $399.99 on Amazon with free shipping, which isn't bad. 2~3 week delivery time, though.

u/perfes · 4 pointsr/buildapcsales

Most of the monitors here are free sync and I would say have good implementations however I will include a Gsync category.


I would not recommend 4k for the 2080. It would be able to run games around 60 fps at 4k however refresh rate will make things more enjoyable. Also, 4k high refresh rate monitors are currently very expensive.


Good value companies to look at:


Pixio (Did not list since availability issues but worth looking at)



More established companies to look at:





Gigabyte (They have one monitor on the market)



TL;DR of VA vs IPS

IPS has slightly better viewing angles than VA.

IPS has slightly better colors VA.

IPS has better response time than VA.

However, VA does not have defects like IPS glow and much better contrast, so much better blacks and such.


TL;DR of TN vs IPS

IPS has much better viewing angles than TN. TN will color shift if looked at straight on.

IPS has much better colors than TN.

TN has the best response rate.

TN is basically worse in every way than VA and IPS except for response time.




Nixeus EDG 27" (NX-EDG27S v2) : $399.99

Here is one of the best value 1440p, 144hz, IPS monitors


Aorus AD27QD 27": $595.33

Arguably one of the best 1440p, 144hz IPS monitor:


VIOTEK GN27DB 27": $329.99

A good value VA panel by Viotek


Samsung CHG70 27-inch: $499.99

A good quality Samsung monitor however I would say it is overpriced, uses a VA panel


Dell S-Series 27" (S2719DGF): $368.75

A good cheap TN panel usually can be found around $300 on sale


AOC Agon AG271QX 27" : $390.00

An alternative to the dell.





LG 32GK650F-B 32": $408.98

This is the LG monitor I would recommend over the one this post has


BenQ EX3203R 32": $537.99

Here is an alternative Benq monitor


The two 32" monitors are also VA panels.




MSI Non-Glare UltraWide 21:9 Screen 34": $419.99 also there is a $20 MIR.

Here is an MSI ultrawide (21:9) 1440p inside your price range


Currently on sale on Newegg, however, remember Newegg has a terrible dead pixel policy.

Instead, I would buy it from B&H even though it is a little more expensive: $449.99


Acer ED347CKR bmidphzx 34" 21:9: $499.99

Here is an alternative ultrawide in case you don't want the MSI one


Both of the ultrawide monitors I have listed are VA panels.

VIOTEK GN35DR 35" 21:9: $449.99

Another ultrawide alternative by Viotek




Gsync monitors (Would not recommend since you are paying extra for gsync without any apparent benefits anymore since free sync now works with Nvidia GPUs)

Dell Gaming S2716DGR 27.0" : $446.00

Can be found on sale around $350 mark. This is a TN panel


Acer Predator XB271HU bmiprz 27" : $599.99

The old goto monitor before free sync became compatible with Nvidia gpus.


ASUS ROG PG279Q 27" : $699.00

The other goto monitor before free sync became compatible with Nvidia gpus.


u/ncolten · 4 pointsr/buildapcsales

I need help deciding...

This or the Nixeus EDG 27 v2 (IPS) for $400?

I do some photo/video editing as a hobby so the IPS would be nice. Just trying to justify if it is worth the extra $100 for IPS (not sure if the Nixeus monitor has any more benefits than that). Any help is appreciated!

u/vahtos · 3 pointsr/buildapcforme

If you're not building in the very near future, the issue isn't just budgeting. There are all new parts that will be releasing over the next 6-12 months (3rd gen Ryzen, AMD X570 chipset for mobos, amd navi, Intel Sunny Cove processors, etc). Even if you plan to only shop great sales/deals, in the long run you'll probably be wasting money vs just saving money and buying all at once 6-12 months from now as prices will gradually drop and the sales will get better over time and as new parts are released.


With that said, I have been toying with builds of current parts for a similar price point and this is what I came up with:




I'd suggest this monitor (it's what I plan to get if I build this): https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07N4DL9F7/ref=cm_sw_em_r_mt_dp_U_JipPCbZMD4JTQ


Total cost: 2425.05


Of course you can always drop one of the m.2 nvme storage drives for a larger SSD, keyboard, more expensive mobo or whatever. I just planned to have two, with one used almost exclusively for steam games. The PSU is overkill too, you can definitely drop to a 750W, or 850W (for overclocking).

I was looking for the cheaper MBest but I don't think they sell it anymore.

u/Strimp12 · 2 pointsr/Monitors

The Nixeus EDG27 V2 is 27", 1440p, 144 hz, IPS, fressync, and it is only $400. A little above you're budget, but 144 hz for 50 bucks more is worth it IMO. And there have been some sales for $380 lately. Here is the Amazon link if you are interested.

u/n00bpwnerer · 2 pointsr/Monitors

What's your budget? The Acer Predator looks to be on sale and it's a well liked monitor around these parts. There are cheaper ones like the Nixeus Edg V2 but if the predator is in your budget then it is faster

u/QGraphics · 2 pointsr/Monitors

No, Washington Blvd Sales which is an authorized retailer of Nixeus products. Covered by Amazon returns. https://www.amazon.com/Nixeus-FreeSync-Certified-Monitor-NX-EDG27S/dp/B07N4DL9F7

u/ElonMesk · 2 pointsr/pcparts

It should work fine, unless you're gaming on both of them. Which monitor are you thinking? FYI there was a thread I saw earlier with the Acer predator on IPS 1440p, 144hz. Not sure if you're in the market for this high end though. There are cheaper options like the Nixeus Edg V2 or TN panels.

u/bountyman34 · 2 pointsr/hardwareswap

The Nixeus Edg27 checks all your requirements and is on Amazon for $400


u/relevant_pet_bug · 1 pointr/buildapc

I did a ton of research into monitors recently and the best one I came up with was the Nixeus Edge V2. Everyone on /r/Monitors jacked off to it. Unfortunately, Nixeus is a smaller company and everyone wants one so the V2 is out of stock. If you are willing to order backordered stock you should get it in may.

Note that I haven't received mine yet, so i can't vouch for the quality. You can do your own research.

u/CountingWizard · 1 pointr/Monitors

I think I've finally settled on a monitor:

  • 27"

  • 2560 x 1440 resolution

  • No G-SYNC, but does have Freesync with a range between 30-144hz

  • 108% sRGB color coverage (no HDR support)

  • Has good quality control, it's an IPS panel that isn't the shitty version that ACER and ASUS use.

    It's also $399. I would have gone with the more expensive Gigabyte AD27QD, but no one has a use for the wider color gamut (HDR) these days because standards are all over the place and using more colors requires more videocard overhead.
u/pm_me_ur_happy_pups · 1 pointr/Amd

If you want to save some cash I highly recommend this Nixeus EDG27S v2. Only $400 for a solid 1440p, 144Hz, 27", FreeSync (also Gsync compatible), IPS panel, 109% sRGB. You won't find better for the price. I shopped around for weeks for a 1440p 144Hz FreeSync monitor and this is absolutely it for me. Here's a very thorough review that really goes into detail about everything you could possibly want to know, and here's another one that's in a more summarized format.

I've had this monitor for over a month and it is amazing to game on. I think the only downsides are the speakers and the stand. Depending on your setup though both of these negatives can be completely mitigated with external speakers and a vesa mount (it's 100x100 vesa compatible). It's very new and from a not-as-well-known company so it flies under most people's radar, but imo for $400 it's the perfect monitor.

u/thegamenerd · 1 pointr/Amd

It looks to be a TN panel so the colors probably won't be the greatest. Personally I have a Nixeus EDG 27 it's an IPS 1440p 144hz monitor. I dig it, compared to my other monitor ( AOC G2460PF) it's far and beyond better. I don't really like curved monitors but I would recommend if you want one to find one with an IPS panel.

u/ddusan · 1 pointr/Monitors

I can't understand why you are comparing mediocre 1080p TN panels to a 1440p IPS panel.

I wouldn't recommend TN monitor to anyone, so IPS it is, but still with XG2703 you are paying the G-Sync $150 premium tax. You know Freesync monitors work with Nvidia cards as well?

Because you could get something like Nixeus EDG27 V2 and save those $150 while having the same 1440p 144Hz IPS panel.



u/Blake_Thundercock · 1 pointr/buildapc

G-Sync monitors are not really necessary anymore because Freesync now works on Nvidia GPUs. You can save $200 by going for this monitor instead. It has the same exact specs and likely uses the same or a similar panel manufactured by AUO.

u/garasensei · 1 pointr/Monitors

Thank you for posting your thoughts.

I knew I'd run into the situation eventually. I've hung on to my 980TI for quite a while since it was one of the last with DVI and analog out. I figured I could get ready for the video card switch by getting a monitor now. I was surprised how limited my options are for monitors. I then discovered it is only the 1000+ series Nvidia cards that supported free sync. So their fates are tied. Very annoying.

I feel better now that I've read how much you enjoy the upgrade. I think the 2080 is my sweet spot. Now if only the monitor choice was so clear cut.


It's down to the Nixeus, ROG Swift, and Aorus AD27QD. On paper the bells and whistles of the ROG AND Eorus don't seem very tempting. I'd forgotten how annoying it is to monitor shop. I'd wager it is worse than picking a motherboard.

u/KingOfFigaro · 1 pointr/nvidia

I just got a Nixeus EDG 27" IPS 2560 x 1440 and I love it (around 400 USD on Amazon). I now use my 32" IPS for my secondary monitor.


So far, it looks like this guy is right. Works 100% fine with DP even though it's not officially certified. Great bang for your buck, I think. I live down the coast from them (they are in LA), so it arrived fast. I've heard overseas people have trouble finding these guys for sale, so YMMV if you're not in the US.

u/minniedahen · 1 pointr/buildapc

Wonderful answer, thank you!


>as for motherboard...

How long would "the next few generation of gpu's" be in years, roughly? I'm asking this because if it'll last a few more years longer, I'm willing to dish out on the X570, even if it is not the most efficiently priced at the moment, on the chance that PCIe 4.0 might take off within a few years. I'm actually willing to go over budget by 100 or so if it means that I don't have to worry about changing the CPU or Motherboard for the duration of this PCs life (which I'm hoping will be around 7 ish years as I said).


> For memory...

That's perfect then, I'll mull over my budget a bit and see if I can fit it in. I read a bit about it and it said CAS latency can be big for gaming, especially if you have a good GPU, but I'm unsure.


> Storage...

Are the differences in different SSD performances mainly to be found in productivity related operations, then? Also dumb question, but is NVME just a type of M.2 SSD? I'm asking this as many SSDs I've looked up are "M.2 NVME" or whatever.


> For GPU the one you have is great as long as you're happy with the performance you'll be getting.

From what I've seen of it, the 5700XT is a pretty high end card, no? Its not a 2080ti but it'll smash most games out nowadays at 60fps+ at 1440p, at least that's from the benchmarks I've seen. Do you think it'd comfortably contend with PS5 era games that'll be out next year? I know its a big guess but realistically isn't it unlikely that PS5 era games will be matching a 2080 ti in the first place? I'm up for upgrading the GPU in 3 years or so anyway.


> Your monitor looks pretty good, you could get one with 1ms latency for under $350

Is this or this good? (credit to u/Jozef-Pilsudski)

I think the Dell one is 1ms, the other doesn't say I don't think.


> you could always turn it down to 1080p on games that need it until you upgrade your gpu again.

Dumb question, but I can turn the resolution down to 1080p on either of those monitors I linked, and the one in the OP, yeah? Cos if that's the case then the limitations of the 5700xt on 1440p won't really matter, and I'll have the monitor got and ready by the time I get a card that can fully utilize 1440p.


> For the monitor RTings

Will rummage around that site as soon as I get a chance, see what I can find.


> Sorry my post is almost as long as yours but I think i covered everything you mentioned

No need to apoligise, its long and answers everything I wanted. Its perfect, thank you so much for helping :).

u/DrSchaffhausen · 1 pointr/VRGaming

This is somewhat related to your post, but make sure you get a 1440p monitor worthy of your build. A 144hz IPS monitor with g sync or free sync is the top of the line. You can get 27" ones for $400 to $500.

I recommend this one.

IPS panel
Freesync (gsync compatible)

I currently have this monitor, loving it but swapped it to my 2nd because I do notice a bit of blur in extremely fast paced games. But for the price killer deal, also not curved.

u/johnnywahl · 1 pointr/buildapc

What are you doing that will require 32gb? 16 is plenty for 99% of users at the moment.

I would get a nice IPS panel like the XB271HU or at the very least the new Nixeus Edg and you can always easily add the RAM in a few years when you need it.

u/The_yingyang_of_edgy · 1 pointr/buildapc

I've really liked my nixeus edg 27" IPS 144Hz freesync monitor.

u/hitlersrighttesticle · 1 pointr/Monitors

The S2719DGF is an excellent monitor. For flat, I'd go with that.

The curved is sometimes a little easier on the eyes, but it is really a user preference. Check out the VIOTEK GN27DB if you're thinking curved. Great brand, great deal, good specs.

EDIT: On second thought, I'd go with this Nixeus: https://www.amazon.com/Nixeus-FreeSync-Certified-Monitor-NX-EDG27S/dp/B07N4DL9F7

possible ram upgrade if you want more ram for whatever reason(performs a bit better in games too)


An nvme SSD if you want more storage than what you already have


Use nvenc to stream via OBS.You could also use the CPU by doing x264 encode but I do not see the reason for your usecase.

You could go to microcenter to grab this https://www.microcenter.com/product/608574/x570-tuf-gaming-plus-(wi-fi)-amd-am4-atx-motherboard and this microcenter.com/product/608318/ryzen-7-3700x-36ghz-8-core-am4-boxed-processor-with-wraith-prism-cooler

See what you like and if you have any concerns let me know.BTW you will benefit from manual ram overclocking on this setup.The ram i picked should be able to do 3600-3800 cl16

Nixeus EDG27s v2 . Best 1440p FreeSync IPS monitor for the price ($400). Also one of the biggest FreeSync ranges on the market (30Hz-144Hz) and a 4ms response time.

u/itsyaboikuzma · 1 pointr/Monitors

This has a good rep, not ultrawide though, 1440p 144hz IPS, 400 bucks


u/AlexRuzhyo · 1 pointr/buildapc

I'm looking for a monitor to pair with a RX 5700 XT. ^(Not sure if this it skirts the edges of what's allowed to be asked but figured I'd ask anyways.)

I believe I'm looking for the best 27" 1440p/144hz+/Freesync(?)/HDR option(s). Based on what I've read the 5700 XT handles that pretty well but feel free to correct my expectations. I'm completely lost when it comes to displays, panels, ect and would appreciate a good benchmark to compare price/features to.

EDIT: Some browsing has lead me to these. The Nixeus seems to be the better of the two options with better color consistency, no ghosting, and freesync on HDMI when compared to the Acer.
