So I am looking for a new monitor to replace my Dell P2319H (1080p | 60Hz | 8ms | 23.8") and I am trying to choose between a bunch of options for a new monitor.

I’m looking for a new monitor for gaming and basic web browsing stuff.

Options:

1. Samsung C32F391FW 31.5” LED VA Curved
2. LG 29WN600-W 29” LED IPS Ultrawide
3. AOC 27G2U5/BK 27” LED IPS
4. Stay with my current Dell monitor

The main reason that I want to upgrade my monitor is size. I think the bigger the better, ain’t it?

PC specs: Ryzen 5 3600, 8GBx2, RX 5500 XT 8GB.

I cant recommend you a display format. That is purely personal preference.
Although I do have plans to buy an ultrawide curved display in the future.

What I can say with certainty is that 5500XT GPU is only for 1080p gaming. Anything above that with demanding graphics will bring the card to its knees

1800R VA screens give you true gamma colors when sitting at a 170cm distance from the panel.
You'll have native colors at nearer plane if you pick a 1500R VA panel(83cm), or a 1000R VA panel(58cm).

I think worrying about "true gamma" and specific distances is getting way too deep here. Only professional photographers, CGI designers and other similar professionals need to worry about that type of precision.

The vast majority of normal users just need things to look natural. Is the grass a realistic green? Is the blue sky blue? Do faces look natural?

And people place their monitors on their desks where they fit best. And they position themselves in their chairs where it feels good in relation to where their keyboard and mouse sit.

That depends on your budget. Prolly option #3.

Bigger is better up to a certain limit. Bigger will also be heavier & harder to adjust. You also gotta keep the viewing distance in mind. How far do you wanna sit?

I would avoid anything Curved..
If you are up to computing and reading of text, you should select one screen which your eyes can easily focus on it.
You may Stay with your current Dell monitor, only if this is IPS.

I have said it before and I will say it again the Gigabyte 32QC is great it has a 1500R curve. The refresh rate is 165 HZ@ 1440P. It's Freesync premium and it has a ridiculous contrast ratio. It usually is $379 US but may have gone up due to popularity. Your GPU will love it. The Freesync range is 38-165 via DP. That makes any Game butter smooth. I can use a machine gun to get scope head shots in Division 2 using this monitor. It even has a built in System Info counter and if you hook it up via USB you can adjust the settings directly in Windows. There was some ghosting but a firmware update (and setting the overdrive to speed) has mitigated that flaw. It the price/performance that has me liking this monitor.

Well, I have like 5 monitors total at home. One is an Acer K272HUL 27" 1440p IPS 60hz, which was up until a couple of weeks ago my primary monitor. I also have a 27" AOC E2752S TN 1080p which I only used about a year after having sold a 27" iMac, that now sits 99% unused on an Xbox, and a couple of HP 23" 1080p monitors, and an old 24" 1080p IPS.

My newest is the MSI Optix MAG341CD 34" curved ultrawide 3440x1440p 100Hz VA monitor. This is my main monitor now.

Biggest concern was missing the IPS, since IPS is so bright and clear. I wind up in front of this screen for 8-16 hours / day since I do development, support for my applications, and so on so - this is important to me.

I don't miss the IPS. In fact, the slightly softer lighting is way better on my eyes. The screen is still crisp and clear, and much easier to look at for long periods. The format is fantastic for both work and play, way better IMO than two separate monitors.

I picked mine up for $399 at Microcenter. About the same price as what you're looking at. Fantastic value, highly recommended.

Therefore you do not miss realistic color representation on screen and neither about printing of pictures taken by a quality digital camera this is of importance to you.
Curved ones they are out there serving at a few and very specific applications, cameras surveillance and or to mimic the environment of dedicated 3D simulators.

For any wrong choices at selecting your monitor, you will pay for them prior the age of 45 years old.
Premature Eyes aging issues.

If this was true, then all of us that started out using CRT monitors would be blind by now.
Please keep your opinions to yourself.

I take it you're aware that ultrawide and curved aren't mutually exclusive?
If I were you, I would take a look at Acer, as they have a look of decent screens for pretty good prices.

I would steer clear of AOC, as their support is lacking. Had major issues with a 4K screen I got a few years ago, it went back for a firmware update which fixed exactly none of the issues. In the end I had to contact the local consumer rights organisation to get a refund, as the monitor had so many issues. It would randomly shut off, part of the screen would "glitch" like there wasn't a signal going through to it, the left side would go weird, the speakers would all of a sudden play a really loud popping sound and so on. Never seen anything like that. On top of it, an acquaintance in a different country had exactly the same issues.
Obviously not saying all their screens are having problem, but the fact that they blamed me for the problems and refused to refund me has just put me off AOC as a brand for life.

Well I’m 51 and started programming using a BASIC cartridge on an Atari 2600.

Your statements about the uses for curved are mostly false.

Correctly curved monitors mean your eyes are the same distance from all areas on the screen. This reduces the amt your eyes have to change focus, reducing eye strain.

I did add a bit of information and not a statement, IPS this is the king of true color at TFT generation of screens.
And entire society of digital photographers they will agree with me.
I am using Adobe Photoshop daily so to shrink down pictures that they are content for my blog, sharp and vivid pictures them qualifying for public demonstration.
According to the application of you using a PC monitor, you are a minority.

VA right now is nearly good enough for realistic color representation & IPS isn't the only one. There is also Plane-to-Line Shifting (PLS) & OLED which also has better color reproduction.
Not everybody needs accurate color reproduction such as gamers, casual users, office workers, etc.
And entire society of digital photographers they will agree with me.
That is a pretty bold claim. See my previous comment on why I beg to differ.
According to the application of you using a PC monitor, you are a minority.
Do you even know what he uses his monitor for? Has he even mentioned it?
I am not giving a shit about such comments.
Watch the attitude... Such negativity will get your post deleted & eventually get you banned.

I've been thinking about this. IPS is prevalent in the professional graphical fields because of its reflected chromaticity on a printed paper, but its luminance isn't always the best. Color mixing and refractive color perception are not exactly the same. Paint is absorptive where as light is reflective. You get a black color if you mix all colors of paint whereas white if you do the same with light. IPS is for chromatic accuracy, not luminant accuracy. That is not how our eyes work though, illumination information is more important for our visual perception.

Our eyes accommodate to light and our luminance sight is more important than color which is actually dedicated to near sight.
Not everybody needs accurate color reproduction such as gamers, casual users, office workers, etc.
Actually, you grouped amateurs and pros all wrong. Ips just suits the chromatic range of a paper print better and reflects mixed paint colors better - no hdr effect going on(0-100 cd/m²).

Nah, I'm not the minority here, that should be obvious. Coding / reading email / updating spreadsheets / writing technical documents / updating web based incidents / logging into servers and checking logs and so on like I do is basically the same eye work as someone who is for example reading this post is doing. The thought work may be different, but the eye work is not.

I think it is self-evident that the amount of time people spend reading things on their computer - facebook, twitter, news, spreadsheets, bank statements, email, and so on - completely dwarfs the insignificant percentage that need 100% color accuracy for photo or video editing. To think otherwise implies that you're out of touch with reality.

If you are making a living out of photo or video editing, or an extreme hobbyist in those areas, then this is the wrong forum to even ask the question. An Adobe forum or photography forum, full of people who specialize in that sort of thing, would be more appropriate.

Anyway, if you read my first post you would know that I have / have had several IPS monitors, pretty much all IPS for the past 8 years or so. I thought they were the best too, until recently. I was sharing my learning that that notion is not necessarily the case. Newer VA monitors and curved monitors are worth looking at.

Dell has better overdrive than both gigabyte and LG counterparts.

TBH I have a wide monitor (32') and it works just fine but I still wish I had gone with a curved monitor at times. The surface that directly faces your eyes where you are looking helps to keeps things "Flat" instead of the usual visual distortion that's naturally there if viewing a surface at an angle instead of straight on.

Bought my wife a curved monitor of the same size earlier and between the two I honestly prefer the curved one instead of this but because this one does works well I have no real need to replace it as long as it's working.

It's just one of those things I wish I had done instead for myself but can live with the choice I made until the time to replace is upon me.

Hi,

I replaced my GPU with the 1070 G1, looking for a good 1440p monitor.

Options:

1. Lenovo Q27h-10 27” LED IPS -
2. Lenovo G32qc-10 31.5” LED VA
3. Gigabyte G27QC Aorus 27” VA 165Hz Curved
4. Dell UltraSharp U2719D 27” LED IPS
5. Dell S2716DG 27” G-sync 165Hz (used)
6. ViewSonic VX3211-2K-mhd (used)
7. AOC Q27G2U 27”
8. Acer VG270U

Which one should I get?
Get the Gigabyte 312QC if it is anywhere near the Lenovo.
