Right opinions please would be greatly appreciated.
I'm looking for a monitor for between 600 to £700. Above 32inch and I use nVidia cards.
Was looking at the new Corsair Xeneon but they are pricey at £700, I'm scared of dell now as there customer service has gone downhill.
Also maybe the Samsung G5
I want it at 2560x1440 response time preferably at 1ms. Refresh rate as high as possible

Any thoughts guys

i think you should give more info like resolution, refresh rate, technology (ips, oled, ...), response time, color accuracy, what you want it for

M32Q - 32", QHD (pixel density same as 24" 1080p screen), switching to 170 Hz is one option in menu, KVM, 480 GBP.

Corsair is overpriced and there are better and cheaper alternatives out there.

After checking out reviews on so many I've decided to go for the Samsung G7 with the g-sync, 240 mhz, 1MS and a 27 inch screen

It is hard to find a good gaming monitors these days. Many monitors today have fake specifications.

Make sure the screen is 1ms GTG and real high refresh rate in HZ without B/S such as MPRT.

I'm wondering if the smear is noticeable on the G7, from RTINGS it still has a slower response from 0 to 20% just like most VA monitors, though it is greatly improved.

I have the 43" Asus XG43V and I still love it to bits. Awesome monitor. Bought it during 2020 Boxing Day sales for £699.

Report back on the curve of that thing. 1000R is quite a bit of curvature for a 27" screen.

I pray and hope you don't get burned with Samsung monitor QC/QA. But knowing Samsung you probably will.

Will put pictures up tomorrow. A bit small compared to my 32 but overall I like it. It's the first one though I've had to play with the setting or should I say bothered to as normally I use it with it's standard out the box settings. Love the response time and sharpness of the pictures. The curve I don't even notice it that much.

Yeah curves on a 27 inch monitor aren't really obvious

And as I was warned the flickering has started. I officially sent the monitor back to them today and am gutted. As I really liked the screen but for that amount money I needed it to work correctly. Wish the new Corsair would go down a bit.
