aorus-cv27f-165hz-curved-monitorBy Christian Eberle @ Tom’s Hardware

The Aorus CV27F 27-inch display is a VA panel with a 1500R curvature and a 165 Hz refresh rate (without overclock). With FreeSync 2, you can even enjoy HDR content with an older AMD graphics card, like the AMD Radeon R9 285 we have in one of our test rigs. No, it won’t run HDR at 3840 x 2160 above 30 frames per second (fps) like some of the best 4K gaming monitors. But it can run HDR right up to 165 fps at 1920 x 1080. And the price is far more attractive too. The Aorus CV27F sells for around $350 at this writing. And while it won’t quite deliver the image quality of something like the Asus PG27UQ, a $1,500 HDR gaming monitor with a full array backlight with local dimming, it sells for less than a quarter of the price.

aoc-agon-ag322qc4-monitorBy Mike Jennings @ Hardware Heaven

The AOC AGON AG322QC4 costs £406 in the UK and $537 in the US, so it’s not a cheap gaming screen – but it does include a huge range of features that will tempt the keenest gamers. However, screens with loads of features do sometimes find themselves lacking in image quality – and that’s no good, because it makes games and films look fundamentally disappointing. How does this panel stack up? Find out the truth in our AOC AGON AG322QC4 review!

msi-optix-mpg27cq-monitorBy Tarinder Sandhu @ Hexus

MSI is a name whose absence has been conspicuous in the gaming monitor market. Others, notably Asus, have muscled in on this lucrative territory with a range of premium models accommodating stylish designs, both forms of adaptive sync technology, and high refresh rates.

Not to be outdone, MSI, in recent months, has begun shipping its own range of gaming monitors under the Optix line. Today’s review model is arguably the most interesting of the lot, fitting in a gaming-friendly 2,560×1,440 resolution, 144Hz maximum refresh rate, 1ms response time, a gentle curve, purportedly excellent colour gamut reproduction, FreeSync compatibility and RGB to boot. Yup, RGB. Quite a list of accomplishments, so let’s take a closer look at the Optix MPG27CQ.

nixeus-edg-27-ips-freesync-monitorBy Marco Chiappetta @ Hot Hardware

Los Angeles-based Nixeus has been working with AMD on FreeSync since the project’s inception. Nixeus was among the first companies to offer an affordable, Full-HD FreeSync monitor with a wide adaptive-sync frequency range and one of Nixeus’ monitors was used in AMD’s initial FreeSync demos all the way back in 2014. Now the company is readying a brand-new FreeSync-compatible display, the Nixeus EDG 27, that features an IPS panel, 2560×1440 WQHD resolution, and a price point that undercuts competing offerings.

nixeus-nx-vue27p-1440p-ips-monitorBy AkG @ Hardware Canucks

It might not be much to look at but the Nixeus NX-VUE27P has specifications to impress like a 27″ AH-IPS panel and a 1440P resolution. Oh, and did we mention its priced less than $399 USD?

acer-predator-xb271huBy Brian Nyhuis @ Legit Reviews

There sure aren’t a whole lot of options on the market for WQHD (2560 x 1440) 144 Hz monitors, and even less options when you’re looking for an IPS display panel. Heck, you don’t have a lot of options for WQHD 144 Hz TN panels, either, especially when looking for 27-inches or larger. Today we’re going to take a look at the Acer Predator XB1 (XB271HU), which is a 27-inch WQHD panel capable of a 144 Hz refresh rate, or 165 Hz when overclocked, and 4ms gray-to-gray pixel response times, featuring NVIDIA G-SYNC technology. Some other features include 100% sRGB color gamut, a brightness of 350 nits, and built-in 2 watt stereo speakers. This monitor has been available since November 2015, but has been well received by gamers.

viewsonic-xg2401-freesync-monitorAuthor: AkG @ Hardware Canucks

It’s an interesting time to be looking for a gaming monitor. Never before have there been so many options regardless of whether you are looking for a budget-friendly solution or a flagship class panel that offers everything from high refresh rates to adaptive sync to superlative color fidelity. We’ve covered quite a few of the higher end offerings as of late, many of which have gone towards a curved design which is supposed to increase immersion. However, we’d be doing a disservice if we ignored all the affordable yet still awesome options which have been launched alongside those halo displays. Hence we have Viewsonic’s XG2401 on tap today, a display which costs less than $300 yet offers features which are sure to please nearly everyone.

acer-predator-x34-gsync-monitorAuthor: AkG @ Hardware Canucks

So here we are with another gaming monitor review and this time the focus is on one of today’s most easily recognizable displays: Acer’s Predator X34. This is a truly stunning monitor that has moved the bar forward by including elements like a dramatically curved IPS panel, a high refresh rate and G-SYNC. It hasn’t done so in a particularly affordable way but for gamers who have a top-end system, Acer may have a perfect fit.

amd-freesync-logoBy: Hilbert Hagedoorn @ GURU3D

In this article we will test out AMDs all new hip feature, FreeSync and we do so with the new Acer FreeSync (27” 1440p 144Hz) screen. This puppy is WHQD and will not break an arm and a leg as it’s available for just just 499 EURO. For that money you receive a FreeSync compatible screen that has 1ms GTG speeds up-to 144 Hz. So yeah, following NVIDIAs GSYNC AMD took matters in their own hands and took a different approach, no more screen tearing and sync stuttering during game-play, if you create a gaming setup with the right circumstances. We will walk you through some available models, driver support and supported GPU’s after which we’ll put the aforementioned ACER screen to the test.

monoprice-crystalpro-28-inch-4k-monitorBy Christian Eberle @ Tom’s Hardware

Nearly every monitor manufacturer has a 28-inch TN Ultra HD monitor in its line-up. Today we’re looking at Monoprice’s CrystalPro 4K. Even though it’s based on the same part as its competitors, you get quality that matches or exceeds those displays.
