Great image quality from a 25in panel, but a lack of USB ports limits the AOC Q2577PWQ's practical appeal

Samsung U28D590D

The Samsung U28D590D ($599.99) is the latest reasonably priced big-screen (28-inch) Ultra-High-Definition monitor to hit PC Labs, and like the Philips Brilliance 4K Ultra HD Display (288P6LJEB) and Planar IX2850 , it delivers a sharp, highly detailed...

While the above are certainly alternatives to keep an eye on, for 4K gaming on NVIDIA GPUs it looks like the XB280HK will remain the primary option. The

Acer Predator XB271HK

Conclusion You'll pay big bucks for the Acer Predator XB271HK, but its price is still in line with other IPS-based, 27-inch UHD monitors, such as the ViewSonic VP2780-4K and the NEC MultiSync EA275UHD, neither of which support Nvidia's G-Sync...

HP Z25n

At the end of the day, the HP’s Z25n comes across as overconfident. The monitor fell short of the promises made by HP in terms of color gamut, brightness, and contrast levels, but it’s not a total loss. It certainly beats out a few other midrange...

We've reviewed a lot of professional-class monitors, NEC's PA272W may be the most accurate and capable one ever to hit the Tom's Hardware lab. At almost $1300, it's expensive for a 27-inch QHD screen. But there are features here you won't find elsewhere.

NEC's PA series of MultiSync monitors have long been the company's flagship line, thanks to their outstanding color and gray-scale performance and killer feature set. The NEC MultiSync PA322UHD ($2,999) continues that trend. This enormous 32-inch,...

Asus ProArt PA279Q

Although 24-inch 1080p IPS displays are now available under £200, good-quality 27-inch consumer panels are still a fair bit more expensive. Therefore there's not too much of a price difference between those screens and the Asus PA279Q. For the extra...

Asus MG278Q

We don't hate TN monitors by any means and the latest panels look pretty good, but we still prefer IPS. In this case, the MG278Q matches its more-expensive stablemate in every area except for contrast and exceeds it in usable FreeSync range. Depending...

The AOC Q2778VQE is one of the cheapest 2,560x1,440 monitors you can buy, and if you accept the practical limitations of a monitor with no ergonomic adjustments and its fairly ugly styling, there's little not to like. It's not suitable for gaming but...

BenQ GW2765HT

BenQ's latest monitor is designed to be a jack-of-all-trades unit able to cope with work and entertainment with equal aplomb. The 27in screen, IPS panel and 2,560 x 1,440 resolution all prove attractive, but its £294 price could seem steep.

Asus MX279H

If I had to summarize the MX279H with a single sentence, it would be: “Good, but not too good”. For the price you are getting, you are getting a good display, even if it is not the latest. If this is okay with you, and you like its design, and the 27...
