  • @cxiao12
    Mga sir, baka may ma suggest lang kayo na 144hz monitor preferably 27". Torn between ultrawide or 144hz ano suggestion nyo? Hindi ko pa natry kahit ano sa dalawa, currently using a 1080p 60hz monitor.

    Mas maganda sir kung share mo sa thread yung budget mo for the monitor and ano yung games na usually nilalaro mo on your PC. Other than games, ginagamit mo din yung PC for movies, office work, video or photo editing, etc?


    SIR @sleepygeepy

    For gaming lang talaga at movies siguro. So far kung maayos ang pag kakaintindi ko eto yung pinakamalapit sa pudget ko ASUS 27" XG27V ROG Swift LED Curved 144hz

    around 25-35k siguro or kung may bang for the buck na 27" sana

    Kung ang budget mo sir is Php 25K - 35K here are some good options. BTW, these are all 27-inch monitors with 144Hz refresh rate or higher:

    Php 15K = Infini M7 (1440p flat TN panel 144Hz FreeSync)
    Php 24.5K = ASUS ROG STRIX XG27VQ (1080p curved VA panel 144Hz FreeSync)
    Php 27.9K = Samsung LC27FG70FQEXXP (1080p curved QLED VA panel 144Hz FreeSync)
    Php 35.4K = Viewsonic XG2703-GS (1440p flat IPS panel 165Hz G-Sync)

    Yung Infini M7 is a real bang-for-buck monitor but currently out of stock yata sa seller. Although advertised siya as TN panel, chances are it is using a VA or IPS panel based sa feedback ng Infini M7 owners. So good siya for both games and movies and yung GTX 1070 is more or less adequate for 1440p gaming. Hindi lang ako sure sa warranty or kung may distro support ang Infini M7 so better inquire first before buying.

    If you are willing to spend more, ASUS XG27VQ and Samsung LC27FG70FQEXXP are your next best options. Both are using a curved Samsung SVA panel so mataas ang contrast which will be good for watching movies or playing games in a dimly lit environment. Between the two mas prefer ko yung Samsung dahil may Quantum Dot layer yung panel which is the same tech na gamit sa Samsung QLED TV's. In my experience very rich at vibrant yung image quality ng Samsung. Another good thing about these two monitors is they are 1080p, so expect high framerates with your GTX 1070.

    Lastly kung mas focused ka sa games and you want G-Sync capability, yung Viewsonic XG2703-GS is a good option. Although siya yung highest priced among the 4 monitors, siya din ang bang-for-buck G-Sync option available. Yung maganda sa Viewsonic is the G-Sync feature so tear-free at micro-stutter free yung gameplay mo with the GTX 1070, even at 1440p where framerates can dip below 60 fps.

  • To the left is my Infini M7 and right is Benq RL2455. I've scaled it both on 1080p for taking these pictures and both monitors are on the same percentage of brightness and contrast.

    I personally think that M7 is an IPS but I can be wrong. Sa camera kasi namumuti ang images pagtitingnan mo sa gilid pero in person hindi naman talaga ganon for me. And yung isang nag-upload ng picture about M7 na ang daming backlight bleed, ganon din sakin pagpipituran mo at puro black ang background pero paggamit mo na naman hindi na naman sya kita para sakin. What I dislike on this monitor is that walang personal presets for each mode like sa Benq ko. Gamit ko kasi sa work pareho at mostly white background ang gamit ko sa work at hindi ko masyadong gusto sobrang liwanag dahil night shift ako. So I need to put the contrast down manually and do my calibration everytime I switch from work to game presets, vice versa. Di tulad sa benq na isang select mo lang, lahat ng presets mo nandon na.

    Isa pang concern ko ay may isang dead pixel ang M7 na nakuha ko at wala nang stock sa binilhan ko kaya sabi sakin ay pili na lang ako ng ibang monitor. Im eyeing the Asus MG278Q and costs 27k since ang hirap bumalik sa 1080p once you get to experience higher resolution. If I want an IPS (MG279Q) that's 32k and is already out of my budget. Lol!

    The single dead pixel is not really noticeable it's just I keep on finding it because I know of it but there are many angles that you wont see it even if you try hard to look for it so I'm thinking if I would need to change my monitor or not.

    If not of the dead pixel and if hindi ko sya ginagamit sa work and need to calibrate it from time to time. This is the perpect monitor for it's price. Kita mo nyo naman difference ng images from the pictures above. But then again, it's still subjective depending on your person's preference. But I hope this helps some of you who are looking for this monitor. Btw, this is not a review, just sharing my thoughts for M7.

    Edit: Hindi ko mapalabas yung image through [IMG] kaya [URL] na lang. Sorry.
