I moved to the UK late 2013 with my girlfriend and we were on a tight budget. I bought an ASUS VE247H in Canada on sale and it works, but it is not very good. Even my LG 42LB5500 which I picked up a year later for £120 gives produces better colour. Even reading editing my thesis is not very enjoyable. With 4k gaining in popularity, I'm hoping 1440p is dropping in value. I would like to upgrade to a 27" 1440p monitor. I'm wondering if I can afford to upgrade before I start working and I'm more than happy to go used. I figure I can sell my 24" locally for around £50. What would I need to spend to get a decent all-around monitor for writing/video content and gaming (non-competitive), I saw a lovely monitor in the marketplace but I won't be able to afford it until I start working. Freesync would be nice, a refresh rate over 60fps and much better image quality (colour).
