Would this be ok for PS4 1080P gaming and spreadsheets? That’s about all I’d use it for.
You use a PS4 for spreadsheets? You can run Exel (or something similar) on there?

Seems like a waste though as you'll only get 1080p60 from your PS4. Why not go cheaper and get a standard 27" IPS 60Hz 1080p panel. Keep life simple.
PS4 is only good for 1080p anyway, unless you mean for video or something? Even the Professional version is only between Ellesmere PRO and XT, so it def. ain't doing real 4K gaming.

Don't understand what you mean, but you need a pc to run this.
Why would you need a PC to "run this"? It's a monitor, it has HDMI. Any device PC or CE or phone/tablet even, that has HDMI output and 1080p support will be able to use this monitor.

I thought they are asking if we need a PC for the gaming monitor, not many devices can run 1080p @ 144Hz, you would have to have a GPU either in a pc or in a laptop sort of thing. its an overkill if you are buying this for PS4.

I'm sure you don't need to run it at 144Hz...that's just the max it can do. If it has FreeSync support I'm sure it can also support traditional static refresh rates like 1080p 60Hz.

Seems like you are intentionally not trying to understand. if you are running this monitor at 60 Hz, its a waste. Might as well get a decent 27 inch IPS panel which runs 1080p at 60 Hz and costs less. I think you can score some for 190.

Seems like you are intentionally trying to confuse the issue. Why would you want an IPS panel for gaming? :facepalm:

picked up this monitor recently. pixel density is better than the curved 27" acer i just returned. Colour needs to be tuned for sure, but looks great after.

couple things:
1) No displayport cable
2) you have to turn on "freesync" in the monitor osd for your Nvidia card to register it as g-sync compatible:
On monitor buttons: Enter > Setup > FreeSync "On"
Nvidia control panel: > Set up G-sync > Enable g-sync > enable for fullscreen mode > enable settings for selected display model
3) You have to use a displayport cable to enable freesync/gsync, 144hz will not work through HDMI

otherwise, 144hz gaming on it looks great

This was my first 144hz monitor purchased close to 3-4 months ago.

Funny enough, I wasn't aware of the whole Freesync vs Gsync debacle - and then they announced Gsync comptability!

In short, it is Gsync compatible.

The 1080 at 27" is something that's a little bigger than I was used to at first. It's my gaming monitor, not my secondary screen so not really an issue. I'll let you figure out if the 1440 is worth the extra 200-300$. ;)

Also, it is worth mentionning I get seldom Out of Range error requiring me to alt tab or close my monitor. There are solutions online, just have not find it recurring enough to implement.

Overall very happy with the monitor. This made me 144hz fanboy henceforth. Cheers

I got the monitor on Friday and 144hz works perfectly fine on the HDMI cable they supplied because it's HDMI 2.0.

I replaced my 13-year old, on the fritz Ultrasharp that I was using as a secondary monitor and this is fantastic. I was worried because people kept saying TN panels are garbage, but as gehko said, it just needs some color calibration and it looks great.

Where can I get a cheap 27" IPS 60Hz 1080p gaming monitor? Preferably not LG as I had 2 in the past and they both died on me.
geez dude, dont buy 60hz

if u really cant afford it, u can have my 10yo 120hz monitor, ive been looking to give it away for a while. just drive by the south shore.


Works 100x better than a 5000$ 60hz for certain.

A 27" monitor at 1080, isnt' that bad? (Based on what I learned on RFD here?)

Shouldn't it be at least 2k (1440?)

if you do get it to work like most monitors that failed the compatibly test it's probably not very good and will have issues
Did this model fail the test, or was it just not tested? Because Nvidia has tested less than 10% of the market.
