I can look something up for you.

Whats your usecase : Gaming , Editing , Productivity?
&
Budget?
Much appreciated!

I mostly use the monitor for text reading and writing, occasionally I play CS GO. I want the sharpest image possible, with nice colours, and slim bezels, for best bang for bucks.

I have been using this monitor from prime cables

https://www.primecables.ca/p-381093-27- ... lesopenbox

Which was great, but it died on me within 9month.

So now I want to get something similar, may be up to 400-500$, and either must be vesa compatible or with adjustable stand.

Thank you for your suggestions.

If you absolutely need one right now, this AOC monitor has what you're looking for:

Otherwise I'd suggest to wait for Black Friday deals.

Summary:
Get this beast of a monitor for 449$ with the 10% off coupon - 65943 + Additional 3% Ebates (don't forget Winking Face)
Indeed, this is a great monitor for this price! What astounds me is that this monitor is actually cheaper than the LG32GK650F-B that came out in early Spring and is lower spec'd/featured than this 850. I'm glad to see that decent 2560 x 1440, 144Hz Freesync monitors are have become more commonly available for under $500.

Anyone know the return policy on monitors to staples, any restocking free or anything of that.

Once some people get this monitor can you let me know what settings you are using for HDR? I seem to get fairly unnatural looking colours with sdr windows content. Just small things like icons on the desktop doesn’t look right. The icon for bitdefender for example doesn’t look quite red to me for example.

Freesync on the LG32GK650F-B version apparently worked flawlessly with Nvidia GPUs. Does anyone have the OP's monitor running an Nvidia card and Freesync? None of the reviews I've looked at for this monitor have specially called that out.

Think only the 1000 series and up of Nvidia cards are compatible with freesync

Techspot reviewed this monitor (I think, it doesn't have the -b at end) with Nvidia GPU and it worked great.

I have the 650 and got it at 400. Only difference with this 850 is the HDR400 which is crap anyway and freesync 2. freesync works flawlessly. I tried it on nvidia and with radeon. The 32" monitors are coming in lower than similarly spec'd 27's it seems.

Sweet, thanks for the linked review.
No problem. I'm really struggling with whether or not to purchase this monitor. I'm reading up on all the different panels (IPS, VA, and TN) right now and each seems to have their own pros and cons, and each article I read comes out with their own winner. From what I'm reading VA monitors have slow response times, but this one seems to be pretty good for that.

Can anyone more informed on this stuff than me tell me if VA is the right move for someone who plays lots of FPS, RTS and ARPGs?

This seems like a great monitor but I'm struggling to pull the trigger.

I've been looking for a gaming monitor since I got the Best Buy Alienware Aurora R8 deal last month.
