The LCD Monitors Thread: Tips, Tricks, Tweaks, New Products and Reviews

  • Finally done switching my Monitor. From Aorus FO48U to Asus PG42UQ.





  • Good day,

    I would like to ask, What's the big difference between....

    GIGABYTE GP-G27Q-AP 27" 144HZ 1440P IPS
    vs
    GIGABYTE GP-M27Q-AP 27" 27" 170HZ 1440P IPS

    The G27Q is price around Php15,900 vs M27Q is around Php20,700 both being sold at a certain "D Blitzkrieg" store

    They are about the same in specs beside the Refresh rate and the port at the back (M27Q having Type C port), or perhaps are the panel use that BIG of a difference?

    If I bought the GP-G27Q-AP Variant, Will I be losing that much feature from not getting the GP-M27Q-AP istead?

    Thank you to anyone that can clarify this for me.
  • @lexafar
    my opinion kuya get the M27Q,additional yung type c input pwede kang mag input ng apple products if u have it ,plus mataas ang refresh rate 170 hz although hinde mahahalata ang difference ng 144hz and 170 hz na refresht rate, kung budget wise then get the lower model and cheaper 1 G27Q-AP 27" btw latest version og HDMI input is 2.1 running at 120hz @4K ,gigabyte is HDMI 2.0 version

    HDMI 2.0 can handle up to 240 Hz when using 1080p resolution, 144 Hz when using 1440p resolution, and 60 Hz when using 4K resolution.

    HDMI 2.1 cables can handle up to 120 Hz when using 4K resolution and 60 Hz when using 8K resolution. Lower resolutions than 4K can all handle up to 240 Hz when using an HDMI 2.1 cable.
  • Ah haha. I use the M27q P as my primary monitor. I don't like its IPS glow pansin talaga pag off angle, and lower response time compared to my 144hz TN panel when playing esports games like CS:GO.


    Off angle? So no problem if viewing the monitor straight?
  • @odellot
    kamusta po si Asus PG42UQ compared ke auros FO48U ?

    di naman experience breaking ang difference. nalalakihan ka ba sa 4.8k difference? ako oo haha.

    check mo use case mo ng monitor based dyan sa comparison ng rtings review. may pics and descriptions sila para makita mo differences. (ps5, gray/black, sdr/hdr, reflection, text clarity, response time (for fast paced games), usb-c, speakers, kvm switch)

    I'm not really into competitive high fps gaming, I mostly play JRPG, Turn-based RPG, Platformer, Rouge-like and Visual Story games. So I think that 144hz vs 170hz difference won't be that noticable in real time usage. Not to mention some of the games I play even caps at 60fps

    And also, I plan to re-use my UGreen Display Port Cable from my current AOC 24G2 monitor for eventual new 1440p monitor

    I never thought to go to rtings for comparison first. I just thought they do singular monitor reviews. Anyways, the "Our Verdict" kinda sums it up nicely but I did check their full comparison and I have to say, they are just about the same.

    The pricing comparison US dollar is close enough that you can just get the M27q for a small price increase but here in PH the difference is a whopping 100$ (5,000) and YES, Nalalakihan din talaga ako sa price difference. Pwede na ako makabili decent Mechanical keyboard or a new Mouse with that. Haha.

    I might opt for the cheaper 144hz variant at this point.

    Also, I'm kinda eye-ing the HP x27q 144hz 1440p from the same said store too. Which is just P1,000 more expensive. Is that a better option perhaps? like build quality and panel use-wise?

    Thank you so much for both your info Sir @RetiredGeNeRaL and @songerph
  • Closer ang specs ng x27q sa g27q so I would choose Gigabyte pa rin. The 1k could buy something else hehe

    According to the rtings review of x27q there are two kinds of panel na gamit. Mas pangit daw yung isa. May chance na yung pangit makuha mo.

    You have a point there. Mukhang talagang sa Gigabyte G27Q na ako. I wanna experience the 1440p goodness.

    Well that sucks, highly possible yun mga bagong batch na binebenta ngayon puro pangit na yun panel na ginamit. Knowing na US variant =/= SEA variant. Thanks for the heads-up.
  • I still use the classic monitor with the longest name haha, viewsonic-vx2758-2kp-mhd. On par pa rin performance nya sa new IPS monitors. Mas onti nga lang features:

    Kaya ang next upgrade ko ay OLED na hehe.

    https://www.lg.com/us/monitors/lg-27gr95qe-b

    27 inch, 1440p, OLED, 999 usd

    woo!

  • Well dang, that is one expensive Monitor. Expected na $999 pero pag dating sa Pinas niyan baka nasa $1.5k (Php75k) siguro yan.

    Well for now, I want to enjoy and bless my eyes with 1440p gaming.

    Thank you so much Sir @songerph
  • @kenth_kristoffer

    This is just the Gigabyte M27Q, but my M27Q P version suffers from the same IPS glow
