WQHD AREA

WQHD IPS G-Sync (+144Hz)

Rank 1: Acer XB271HU Check Price / Review and the Viewsonic XG2703-GS Check Price / Review

Rank 2: AOC AG271QG Check Price / Review

Rank 3: Asus PG279Q Check Price / Review

 

WQHD TN G-Sync (+144Hz)

Rank 1: Asus PG278QR Check Price / Review

Rank 2: Dell S2716DG Check Price / Review

Rank 3: Acer XB271HUA Check Price / Review

Note: Here it is pretty hard to set a ranking because the Asus and the Acer bot have a very matte anti-glare coating whereas the Dell has huge color banding issues. For more in-depth details, watch or read the review.

No reviews yet. As soon as the LG will release, it will be tested on Lim's Cave.

 

WQHD VA Freesync (+144Hz)

Rank 1: Samsung CHG70 Check Price / Review

 

Full HD AREA

Ranking overview within the forum

Rank1: Viewsonic XG2401 Check Price / Review and the LG 24GM79G Check Price / Review

Note: The Viewsonic overall has a little bit better image quality (a bit more intense colors) however, its pretty hard to see the difference when not comparing directly 1:1. The LG otherwise offers a backlight scanning feature which the Viewsonic doesn't have.

Rank 2: Acer XF240H Check Price / Review (finished but not uploaded yet) and the Iiyama G-Master GB2488HSU-B Check Price / Review

Rank 3: Samsung S25HG50 Check Price / Review

Rank 4: Asus MG248Q Check Price / Review

 

Full HD TN G-Sync (+144Hz)

No reviews yet.

 

Full HD VA Freesync (+144Hz)

Rank 1: Samsung CFG70 / CFG73 Check Price / Review

Note: The Samsung is currently the only one tested Full HD VA monitor because competition currently has some bigger issues (especially in clouding). Overall the Samsung is a very good(!) monitor. However, if you buy the Samsung, unfortunately, you will join the purple artifact lottery. Pros & Cons you can read the review. TN or VA? It depends on your preferences. A better response time without glow (TN) or worse response time with smearing and glow (VA).

 

Ultrawide WQHD Area

Ultrawide WQHD G-Sync (+100Hz)

Rank 1: Asus PG348Q Check Price / Review

Rank 2: HP Omen X35 Check Price / Review

Note: Both monitors have its own pros & cons - Personally, I would choose the Asus. I hope that I will soon receive the new Alienware Ultrawide.
