    VA panels are not the best option for response rate enthusiasts, but they're good for black level goths.

    This.

    VA is just fine for most stuff.

    At 2ms response I wouldn't worry about response time. I would worry about input lag, something that is mostly unrelated to the panel, but more to the monitor as a whole.

    He was talking in general and he's quite spot on. :P

    After some research I found out that is this same monitor that massdrop sells in the US:



    I'd say for 300 british dollars it's not that bad.

    Just make sure to get it calibrated. If you have photographer friends, should be quite easy

    Just bought an Acer Predator XB271HUA. 1440p, 1ms TN panel (IPS was another 100-odd with lower response time). At 120hz, gsync on, it is GLORIOUS.

    Nice score, though.

    Nope. Once you tried the good stuff there's no turning back.

    Cheap ultrawide or high refresh rate curved

    34" iiyama XUB3493WQSU-B1 3440x1440 48-75hz 4ms IPS
    Or
    31.5" Acer ED323QURA 2560x1440 144HZ 4ms VA

    It will be sat between a 24" 1080p monitor and a 31.5" 1440p monitor, is 34" big enough for an ultrawide that wont make it much taller than a 27" or much wider than a 32" but both camps ultra wide and high refresh say you will never go back. No I can't push out to a better high refresh ultra wide my current build is already more than my monthly salary.

    I'd go for the 31.5" one if you want to fit it with the screens that you already have. I am not sure you need a curved screen unless you get an ultrawide one (in case that you have a non-curved alternative). Your remark concerning lack of money sounds a bit hollow from someone who still has both his kidneys though.

    Note that a 34” UW will be shorter on the vertical axis than either a 27” or 32” 16:9 monitor. I have a 34” at home and a 38” at work, and the 38” has just a smidge less vertical space than the 27” it replaced. So a 34” UW will not match well with your other two monitors.

    And yeah once you switch you won’t want to go back to a normal aspect ratio or refresh rate.

    Looks like this MSI is within your budget? https://www.amazon.com/MSI-Non-Glare...11&s=pc&sr=1-4
