Which monitor is better? (This will be for gaming)

Do you guys think the AOC G2460PF or the Viotek GN27C is better? I know one is bigger and one is cheaper but i was wondering if anyone had a clear-cut answer.

  1. I'd say the answer depends on whether you value image quality or screen size better. They're both 1920x1080, support 144hz and freesync, and both almost certainly TN panels (though the quick search I did, neither product page specified). The same resolution will always look better on a smaller screen.

    Would you rather have a larger, curved screen, or a smaller screen with a sharper image?

    I've also never heard of viotek, while AOC is a reasonably well known company, so you may also want to look into what warranty they each come with (and specifically, their dead pixel policy if you're buying online).

    I would advise against Viotek, as I have never heard of it and the google search didn't come up with Viotek's website(if they have one).
    AOC, on the other hand, is a well known monitor company and I think you should go for that one.
    Also, the Viotek uses a VA panel, which tries to combine the gains of both TN and IPS, but fails miserably in my opinion. It's refresh rates are good on paper, but when going from dark to dark, the ms grows quite a bit.

    I want t point out that VA panels are generally superior to both IPS and TN for picture quality, at the cost of slower refresh speeds than both. That said, almost no modern panels have slow enough refresh rate to make any difference. Input lag is typically many times higher than refresh rate, and generally more noticeable, although it's almost never advertised. That said, advertiesed refresh rates (beyond 60/120/144Hz support) are totally meaningless, so there's not much to go on there either.
