Any ideas would be helpful and appreciated.
I have been reading reviews and there are to many that are negative.
So I am stuck making this decision.

What are the requirements?

Size of monitor?
Money budget?
Do you want a basic 60 hz model or a faster one?


I personally think that anyone buying a gaming monitor today should be buying either a G-sync or Freesync model but if you do not care for that ignore what's written below this line.

For gaming I'd definitely look at buying either a G-sync or Freesync monitor but which depends on your choice of graphics card brand.

Freesync is AMD's name for when they are using the Adaptive sync standard found in displayport 1.2a on.

G-sync is Nvidia's version which uses a special module that Nvidia provide the monitor makers with.

G-sync monitors have a price premium but you do get a set performance level from it where as Freesync being an open standard relies on the monitor maker to determine how well they support it, which has resulted in loads of monitors providing a poor experience due to cheap components, AMD's answer is to release Freesync2 which comes with minimum spec requirements, It doesn't mean there isn't good Freesync monitors now it just means you need to do your homework before buying one.

Also, are you a competitive gamer or play just for fun?

"Gaming monitor" sounds like a faster one, but usually that means you must compromise with other specs. For example, a TN panel is faster than IPS but has less good colors and viewing angle. I'm not sure what to look for when it comes to monitor speeds, but I suspect speed is sometimes over-hyped unless you're a competitive gamer and willing to sacrifice everything else but speed.

That said I don't notice any delay when moving a Windows program window as fast as I can across my desktop (with max mouse sensitivity). Fast mouse movements in games seem smooth and sharp too (with in-game motion blur disabled, and average in-game mouse sensitivity). I haven't noticed any strangeness with explosions or flashes either. Despite all this my IPS monitor's pixel response time speed is pretty average, with at best 6ms from gray-to-gray. Maybe I'd notice a difference if I compared with a faster screen.

I guess that doesn't hurt, everything else being equal. Still I don't notice any tearing on my 60Hz monitor. I use V-sync when available, which of course locks the framerate at 60Hz, but (again) do you really need faster than that unless you're a competing gamer? I'd rather turn up the graphics quality until the GPU becomes the bottleneck at 60Hz (or even slower).

Am I on another monitor thread?

These type of things can easily be found with Internet searches.
While most individuals only buy a couple of models, except Nasha who
has the most experience here, a PC review site will look at many of them.

I'm not using G-sync but from my local forum the Asus Swift models stand out as liked.

***Asus
PG279Q ROG Swift 27" 2560x1440 IPS G-Sync 165Hz Gaming Widescreen LED Monitor - Black/Red

Also look up the following monitors on your local forums & sale sites looking for reviews

Acer
Predator XB271HUAbmiprz 27" 2560x1440 TN G-Sync 165Hz Gaming Widescreen LED ZeroFrame Monitor

Acer
Predator XB271HU 27" 2560x1440 IPS G-Sync 165Hz Gaming Widescreen LED Monitor

You'll find all the above monitors here:

https://www.overclockers.co.uk/monitors/by-type/g-sync


This Dell monitor ticks all the right boxes, It has a lot of reviews on my local forum and a good rating.

DELL
S2716DG 27" 2560x1440 TN G-Sync 144Hz Gaming Widescreen LED Monitor

https://www.overclockers.co.uk/dell-s2716dg-27-2560x1440-tn-g-sync-144hz-gaming-widescreen-led-monitor-midnight-grey-mo-084-de.html


***
They also do a TN version of the Asus Swift gaming monitor.



Food for thought
While IPS panels do handle colours better Light bleed is an issue, TN panels have better responsiveness too, The middle ground is a VA panel.

As you're spending a lot of money I imagine you want it too last you a long time, With that in mind you could consider including HDR in the spec as the industry is in the process of replacing a lot of the current high end monitors with HDR ones.

This one seems to be the stand out monitor on OCUK, It has 26 reviews which is a lot for the site and they're all positive so have a good read.

I bought a 27" Acer IPS monitor that is 1440P. It is just 60HZ and is not a free-sync or G-sync style. That is reflected in the price and it is a great monitor. I don't really do competitive gaming so its very nice for my old eyes.

That's not a bad price but I'm one of these people that require a black
monitor to keep it from being a distraction. I hate bright power lights too.

It only has a gold bottom which isn't bright in color. The soft blue power button points down and isn't really a distraction to me. Not bad.

Yeah, I didn't mean any lights on your particular model. I just mean in
general including other things like speakers. I bought some speakers
with a very bright red light which is the wrong color for something like
that. I prefer blue or green. I remember a time when ALL Monitors were
beige and that sucked. I bought an Acer Aspire back in 1998 that was a
darker green: the case, the monitor, the keyboard and mouse. It was
pretty sweet. Then a few years later that 15" monitor was replaced with
my Viewsonic 19" CRT that was all black. I gotta have black from then on.

I'm not sure why they have the Asus MG279Q down as the best Freesync monitor, They're horrible, It sounds great as they call it the Dominator but it's not a nice monitor to use, I sent mine back within a week.

I may of just been unlucky with the amount of bleed in the corners but the worse feature of the monitor was it's Freesync capability,
Yes it's a 144hz monitor but Freesync only works between 40 and 90 hz so every time the fps went above 90 a message appeared on screen saying Freesync's now turned off. I'm sure there was a way to turn the message off but you don't want that to be happening anyway. If it's a 144hz panel Freesync should go up to 144hz. It's definitely not a good Freesync monitor.

Nasha~

Yeah...for this reason I try to read multiple reviews. If one review says
good about a product I didn't like or suspect it's accuracy, I'll read as
many more as I can. If multiple reviews still say good then I might
consider I got a bad single item. If the reviews are split down the
middle then some people may like/not like a product for various
reasons. If overall reviews are bad then I will try to avoid it.

Also check how old the good reviews are, if there's a trend. Some monitor models might be good when first produced, but over time production quality slips (there might be a technical explanation for this, can't remember).
