    Hi

    Looking for a new 27" monitor mainly for work but also the odd bit of gaming. Budget is around £300.

    Had a look at the Asus BE27AQLB and also the Dell P2719H. Anyone use one of these or can recommend an alternative?

    Cheers

    I've just realised that the Asus is 2560x1440 resolution and the Dell is 1920x1080. I've currently got an old 22" Samsung monitor I'm upgrading from which runs at 1920x1080. Would I be better with a 27" monitor that runs 2560x1440 now?

    Cheers

    I wouldn’t be buying a 4K 60Hz panel for gaming lol

    @bigdunc what’s your PC specs? (Mainly CPU/GPU) if powerful enough then I’d go 1440p on 27” display.

    Something like these is around your budget... might have to shop around if no stock.

    I don't do much Pc gaming these days so I guess response times and refresh rates won't really matter but specs are i7-5820K @ 4.2GHz, 16GB, 250GB SSD, Seagate 2TB, GTX 980. It's mainly office related stuff I'll be using it for like internet, emails, remote desktop etc

    *shrug* I did (two of them), I don't game much and mainly use it for work. Use case seemed pretty much the same.
