Hey can someone let me know what they would choose. I’m thinking of this monitor vs this

https://m.canadacomputers.com/product.php?id=098428

Which one is better for day to day use. I won’t be gaming much. Would prefer a better picture quality one. I don’t mind wide screen either
If you know you won't be gaming then go for the 34" Ultra wide for more screen work space.

If you are going to game or think you will, especially first/third person shooters, the 100% go for the one in this thread for the higher refresh rate. Some competitive FPS gamers would even say 27" is too big and go for 24" 1080p.

Is there even a need for a 144hz monitor if you are not gaming or doing work that involves high refresh rates? I'd save big money and go for a high quality slower monitor.

This is a LAVA hot deal for this monitor. It is very good and well reviewed. This is the lowest price I've ever seen it. +1, thanks OP

If youre not gaming the bigger screen is probably nicer.

The big thing on this dell is the 144hz 1ms gysnc

I also have this monitor and the G-Sync + 144 Mhz is great, even if it's only TN.

An equivalent monitor from Acer/Asus are $800-900 and the IPS versions are $900-1000.

Such a strong internal / psychological conflict in my head:
144Hz - Yay
TN panel - Bummer

Buy now, think later?
for gaming, why would someone care about colour accuracy and viewing angles? if I were in the market for a gaming monitor, all I would care about is performance.

Is there any 144hz IPS panels that even exist??

Also, can this monitor be hacked to work with FreeSync?

Because sometimes people don't have a dedicated system/monitor setup just for one thing....PCs started because of general purpose computing, you know.

Simply put, I want X dollars to do Q, R and S.

Can't be hacked for FreeSync since it's hardware enabled

Had this monitor for over a year and it is perfect. I never use G-Sync as I play PUBG and CSGO at unlimited FPS for less input lag.

With OLED, HDR, 4K+144hz, and other display technologies on the horizon (and out of touch price-wise), I think this is a really good buy for the next year or two until the new wave of monitors become mainstream. This is a pretty high end monitor for sub-$500. It's also one of the best TN panels available. It's surprisingly nice while next to my Dell Ultrasharp IPS.

You can see on amazon this monitor (and other 27" 144hz 1440p monitors with exact same panel) selling for $650+.
