27" 1440p, 144Hz, IPS, G-Sync Monitor

Recommended Posts


Hi all,

Just wanted to get some help and opinions on the best monitor to purchase based on the above requirements.

I've got a 1080 TI FTW3 and will be looking to upgrade from my current BenQ 24" 144Hz monitor.

Having had the taste of playing on a 144Hz monitor, I can't go back to anything lower.

Therefore, I'll need something that's:

1) 144 Hz & above
2) 27"
3) 1440p minimum
4) Ideally not curved
5) G Sync
6) Below $800 AUD preferably

A current shortlist of monitors I'm quite interested in:
- ASUS ROG Swift PG279Q
- Viewsonic XG2703-GS
- Dell S2716DG
- Acer Predator XB271HU

Anyone have any experience with the monitors listed above? Any other recommendations?

Hi, I upgraded my old 24" monitor a few weeks ago, on Black Friday.  I had been researching 1440p resolution monitors for like a year, and was having a hard time deciding if G-sync was actually worth the extra cost. 

I ended up with an Acer Predator XB1 (model: XB271HU bmiprz) and LOVE it!  I couldn't be happier with my choice, as it is a very well made monitor (it is heavy), with vibrant screen colors and is very bright (even on the reduced blue light setting that I'm using). I was bit afraid of getting an IPS monitor, but my Acer has next to no light bleed issues, not even in the screen corners.

Every game I have is running so much better on it and all my flight sims are now so much more smoother.  For anyone who has wondered if G-sync is worth it, my answer is a most definite YES.

I have a PG279Q, and I'm still impressed every time I turn it on. Yes, G-Sync works, and really well with P3D...even with framerates of 30 and below. Don't listen to the naysayers that tell you G-Sync doesn't work below a framerate of XX, it's not true, as G-Sync functions perfectly down to 1 fps. The PG279Q provides excellent color range, contrast, and sharpness. Mine is calibrated using a commercial color calibration tool (from my commercial printing days), and this monitor provides a very robust color gamut - I even use it for image color correction...it's that good.

I had considered the Acer monitor that Arwen owns, and to be honest, I can't remember why I chose the 279Q...in any case, either monitor will be a winner, and you'll be glad you own it.

If you buy the Q, you won't be disappointed!

Kind Regards,

I'm also looking for a GSync 1440p 27" (or larger) display for under £600. My main sim is DCS2.5 so wondering if I should go TN rather than the slightly slower IPS? So far I was considering these Acer displays:

Acer Predator XB271HU IPS 4ms £590

Acer Predator XB271HUA TN 1ms £584

In reviews I've seen apparently the Asus PG279Q has worse backlight bleed although apparently a more user friendly OSD menu.
