im also in the market for a new monitor. any suggestions?

27" - 32"
144 hz or better
1ms response
curved

found this https://www.lenovo.com/us/en/access...w-10G193403G034inch-Monitor-HDMI/p/66A1GCCBUS

So that one looks promising, but I found this single Newegg review which basically says it is almost unusably dim.



So I am also in the market... I bought my son dual 1920x1080 144Hz monitors for Christmas, and the DisplayPort on both of them has already gone out. Since he uses an Nvidia RTX 2070 video card, in order to use AMD FreeSync, he needs to use DP connectivity instead of HDMI.

The problem is, even though I'm going to be refunded, the monitors I got were cheap Westinghouse brand from Newegg, at 170 each - hence probably why they've failed.

So I'd also like to find replacement 27" monitors for him, but don't really want to upgrade in price significantly. Here's one I've got sitting in my cart at Amazon:

MSI Full HD Gaming Non-Glare Super Narrow Bezel 1ms 1920 x 1080 144Hz Refresh Rate Adjustable Height Arm FreeSync 27” IPS Gaming Monitor (Optix MAG274), Black, Optix MAG274R


However, buying 2 of them with tax and shipping puts me at about $522, a bit higher than the $390 I spent on his other ones. I don't really want to go that route if I don't have to, but finding gems under the $200 price point for a 27" 144Hz (even at 1920x1080) is tough.

I've considered just getting him a 32" or 34" curved monitor instead, so that Lenovo above looks promising and is closer to what I'm looking to spend - it is $399 at Newegg or $429 from Lenovo...


Now I'm looking at a bunch on Amazon... argh, this makes my head spin.

My LG and Vizio have been pretty good - are Westinghouse under the same corp? I just can't overlook 2 failures in 3 weeks of the same component.

No idea who the OEM is for Westinghouse. I bought two TV's from them, one a refurb from Woot, and both worked out well for me. Sure, 2 examples isn't telling, but I had good luck. :)

Ooooh, a super wide 1440p. Nice!

Now from Debbie Downer... How far is it going to sit from your face? Hopefully you have a deep desk, otherwise you'll eventually get tired of moving your head around to see the entire screen.

I am thinking about that too, I read somewhere for the 1000R 34" the suggested range was 100cm.

I bought a 32" flat LG with a FreeSync VA panel (but works w/ nvidia adaptive sync too). I've been very happy with it so far. I've seen it on sale at Microcenter for $300 if you want to wait for a sale.

I was really surprised by that LG you got. I went to microcenter and looked at all the monitors trying not to look at the spec sheets to see if I could tell a difference. The LG VA panels really shined and at a great price point.
