Yes and yes. To review, the DisplayPort input jumbles my windows around when it goes to sleep unless I introduce a registry hack, and both HDMI inputs (the regular one and the MHL one) fail to recognize that the output is in sleep mode and not unplugged.

Look for power management settings on the monitor. A lot of them do this now because they want to entirely shut down the controller for vampire power draw reasons but as a result cause this stupid poo poo.

If there are no such settings, you're SOL.

in what layout? 1x4 or 2x2, or a triple on bottom and one on top?

biggest monitor stand I think I've seen is a triple, but you could do two dual stands, or start a second row (you could set yourself up for two triples and leave yourself space for another 2 mounts on the top row).

Apparently this is qualifies as "large cosmetic imperfections on computer casing".



Maybe it happened during transport, but I don't see any other "imperfections". I'm a little frustrated. It took three weeks to get here because Amazon lost the first one, and this is what I end up with.

Iím pretty cold on Amazon warehouse deals in general, knocking 10% off a new item and not getting the warranty, potentially not getting the accessories, etc is just not a good deal, even assuming someone hasnít just swapped the item with a similar one that slipped through the returns department.

But with monitors thereís just too many pitfalls already. It triples the chance of shipping damage (the monitor has now done three legs of shipping), and backlight bleed or dead pixels are a significant driver for returns. Even on something like GPUs you are placing yourself at elevated risk of coil whine or getting just a terrible overclocker that someone else decided to take a mulligan on.

All in all I just donít see the value proposition being there to save 50 bucks on a $400 monitor. I guess if the price is really right then sure, if it were half off then yeah Iíd take the gamble, so weíre really just haggling about the price, but in general Amazon Warehouse doesnít give you good bang for the buck.

And Iím someone who used to really advocate the Acer Recertified monitors and so on. Because it was significantly cheaper and someone at Acer was at least looking them over.

And a couple of years ago, the expectation with high-refresh-rate monitors was literally that you had to return three or more monitors before you got a good panel. If there's one purchase I'll be sure to get good warranty on, it's a monitor. Probably a PS5 after that.

I'm assuming AUO is much better these days.

Well in this case it was over $100 less.

In a follow-up chat session I was told I do have to return the item and that my refund hadn't actually been filed. Great customer service, Amazon. Now I just hope they actually have it marked appropriately, and don't charge me for returning a broken item.

Also I went through four CS representatives because they would disconnect (the issue for sure wasn't on my end)

Itís not great or anything though, but I imagine youíll probably want something generally like tható a pole with the arms sticking out.

Iíve since switched to using the Fully monitor arms, which I like a lot, but Iím only using the single monitor ones. They do apparently have a pole style mount which could work for four monitors: https://www.fully.com/fully-desk-mounted-monitor-arm.html

My impression is that there are cheaper alternatives to Fully which are basically as good or maybe even basically the same OEM, I just donít know which ones they are.

It's an 8 year old 75hz TN. A modern gaming monitor is going to blow its doors off in terms of response time as well as doubling the refresh rate, and have hugely better color reproduction. VRR is also a gamechanger, not having to choose between tearing and awful vsync latency while also eliminating monitor-based judder is a huge win.That said, as far as price points there are a few options for 24" 1080p 144hz IPS Freesync monitors in the $160-200 range, but for value we mostly tend to point people to the 27" 1440p 144hz IPS Freesync monitors, most frequently the LG 27GL83A, which is $380 (can be had for significantly less from Amazon warehouse, which is worth the gamble since you can return it). As long as you have a 10 series or newer Nvidia GPU you can take advantage of Freesync.

e - having looked at RTings though, the Gigabyte M27Q looks really, really promising. Haven't seen any user reviews yet, but RTings is a very good review source and given Amazon's good return policy that would probably be my first pick for a monitor to buy right now as long as you don't mind the risk of being an early adopter and possibly running into some weirdness.

My wife has to return her monitor as she has changed jobs so I'm looking to buy a new monitor in order to demote my existing ones.

My 24inch 1080p Phillips monitor will become our work/laptop monitor, my 27inch QHD overclocked to 96Hz Korean Crossfire monitor will become my secondary monitor and I'm looking for a new primary monitor to replace that one.

When I bought the Crossfire years ago things like G-Sync and Freesync were a super premium but now they seem the norm so I'm a little confused, but I've read the last dozen or so pages and got a feel for what the market currently is.

I'm currently rocking a 980ti so i'm probably going to stick with 27inch 1440p. The LG monitors that people are recommending are slightly out of my price range at around AU$600 (I'm in Australia) so I've found this Gigabyte G27Q for AU$400 which is more my budget. It got listed as the "Best budget 1440p gaming monitor on rtings" but does anyone here have any experience with it (or have any further input based on the specs and/or my setup)?

That seems like an extremely good price for what it is, given the usual awful AUD prices.

Also you got me to look at RTings for the first time in a bit and drat their M27Q review is pretty positive. For US buyers I might be inclined to purchase that over a 27GL83A. It's fairly similar in most ways, has a slightly worse stand, but the contrast is MUCH better and it does have better low-refresh overdrive tuning. Given that it's also $50 cheaper... yeah I'm gonna go edit my last post. It's a bit cautionary because I haven't heard user reviews yet, but rtings is usually fairly reliable.

Just want to point out that monitors with G-sync hardware are still expensive. Most G-sync monitors you'll see mentioned here are actually FreeSync monitors (where your gpu is responsible for syncing frames) that Nvidia officially support (but if I'm not mistaken, virtually any FreeSync monitor will work).

Second point, is that this feature isn't supported on 900 series gpus. Just fyi.

i dunno, i did it, had to return it once and got another and the 4 days of not having a monitor was worth $50 to me. its not like they forced me to keep the first one

Regarding the M27Q - reviews for it and similar monitors from Gigabyte ding it for not being able to rotate, but it looks like the stand just screws onto the vesa mount. If I wanted it permanently portrait mode, I can just mount it sideways right?

If so, I might buy that this week. I've been looking to upgrade, but my desk is too shallow to fit the LG everyone likes and still have room for anything else. The three inch difference in depth here will be significant.

I'm in Australia, but the pricing seems to be holding everywhere - the M27Q's predecessor, the G27Q (basically the same but 144Hz instead of 170Hz) is going cheap, selling for ~US$300 at Amazon and Newegg, and is essentially equivalent to the LG 27GL83A.

This is exactly correct, and eerily enough, I just got my G27Q today, and did exactly that with it, next to my G34WQC:



Just need another arm for the ultrawide now, I had it on the one I have before the 27" arrived. I just used the screws it came with for the stand (seems to be the same stand for all these similar Gigabyte products, it sucks a bit but whatever), works great.

Freesync is variable refresh rate (VRR). Lets the monitor delay refreshes until a new frame is available. With this and a framerate capped below the monitor's refresh rate, you get no tearing and minimal latency. You also get better frame pacing - assuming the game engine is capable of it, as most modern games are, the frames will be displayed evenly spaced apart rather than in a juddered manner. Freesync is the VRR standard AMD came up with, all remotely modern AMD GPUs support it while some people still have 9 series Nvidia GPUs that don't.

There's also a huge quality uplift from TN to IPS. A few high-end modern TNs aren't THAT far behind, but a TN monitor that old is going to get rear end blasted by a new IPS monitor in terms of color reproduction. Similarly, that monitor predates modern overdrive tuning and the like - you're likely to see significantly better pixel response, regardless of refresh rate. It's too old to have serious testing on it so I can't quantify the uplift, but it should be significant.

There's no question it's an upgrade and a significant one - especially going to 1440p. The question of whether it's worth it to you is up to you. It depends on if you still care about performance as much as you did when you were an early adopter of high refresh LCDs, and also depends on stuff like whether your GPU has the horsepower to drive 1440p at the framerates you want in the titles you want.

Acer PG32UQX and Acer X32. So far nothing, probably at least partially a factor of covid delays but they probably should be advancing sometime this year. Monitors run on their own timetable though, they release when they drat well feel like it (mostly due to panel availability problems).

yeah the counterargument to "but OLEDs have burn in!!!1!!!!" is "lol but I can buy two loving OLED TVs for the price of one of these gaming monitors, so if it gets burn-in in two years I'll buy another".

the price is out of control on these new panels. Maybe at $1500-2k but not for the price of two OLEDs.

I'm not really sure where this would go, but I'm trying to use 4 monitors in a 2x2 setup (two LG g-sync monitors and two Lenovo ThinkVision work monitors) and a mouse+keyboard between my personal self-built Windows computer (RTX 3080 and a GTX 1080 Ti) and my work Windows laptop (Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga). Both sets of monitors have DisplayPort and HDMI. As for USB devices, I'd like to have at least four for my mouse, keyboard, webcam, and wireless headphones.

The work laptop won't be going anywhere; it's basically a desktop for all intents and purposes.

Are there 4 monitor KVM switches that can handle G-Sync? Or should I focus on a 2 display KVM switch for the work monitors if there isn't a KVM switch that can handle G-Sync? It would be a little annoying, but not a big deal to manually switch inputs for the gaming monitors.

Budget is $300.
