    Hi all

    Looking for a bit of advice here. So planning to get a new monitor in a month or so.
    My current monitor is Dell U2515H which has excellent display and color quality and amazing for photo editing. But I want to add another monitor in my setup for gaming with below spec
    • 27inch (or 32inch if budget allows)
    • 144hz
    • 2560 x 1440
    • Free sysc (got AMD card)
    • Curved preferred but not mandatory
    • Budget: £250-£350 (or less :D)
    Now if I search for monitors with above spec there are plenty of options but I want a gaming monitor with the color quality as close as my Dell U2515H without breaking my bank. I understand that with above spec its probably impossible to get a true color monitor (no yellow/blue/green tint) with in my budget range (those are like over £500), but I want as close as possible.

    So what is your experience with the monitors within this price range? Happy to hear any advice. :)
    Cheers!

    is it this one mate? .... On amazon price is almost same for 27" /32" .... Did look at this one as it ticked all the boxes for me apart from Freesync ... but have no clue about the color


    Its a very good choice at this price tag, great find! might consider but i need to search/investigate more. :)


    Basically I am making a list now, plan is to buy one on Amazon Prime day deal :D

    Thats why I am finding it difficult to compare

    having two monitors with complete two different color/contrast is awful :(

    The Hexus review shows that the AOC Q3279VWFD8 has better colour accuracy than the Dell U2718Q and P2419H but I can't find a site that has both your monitor and the AOC tested under the same conditions to compare.

    No idea. Its been a while I have heard anyone on here buy from them, but I know many have over the years and been very happy with the product and service provided.

    It is an TN panel but supposedly a very good one, so colour accuracy won't match your ips I would guess. There is a review link on the product page however which says it's good enough as to make it difficult to tell the difference.

    I suggest giving them a ring and seeing what they say. Tell them you are a member on bit-tech and another member recommended them. That's how we all swung a discount with them in the first place.

    Also, at 27" curved is just a gimmick imo, and possibly one you may regret buying into. Curved is good on 34" ultrawides though.
