    I don't really understand what's happening. I have 240Hz AOC having 27 inch, with 0.5ms since like half a year (and I was late to the party), why they are marketing after ALMOST 1-2 years the 165Hz?

    And I've had a 144Hz 27" 1440p IPS for what feels like a decade (has to be over 5 years by now), yet what's out there now is barely any better than what I have, even at stupid prices. The sane-priced monitor market has stagnant trash for many years now.

    QD-OLED seems to be disrupting this a bit. Obviously just Ultrawide for now but presumably we'll see 27"/32"/etc soon. Left to be seen what issues there are with the tech.. but so far it's promising.

    Yes, 200 pounds. AOC C27G2ZE, more then a year ago. Now you can find second hand even at 120 I guess.

    They're 1080p, and I bought my 1440p one (in 2016? 2017?) on sale for $500 CAD which would have been like 250 pounds. Considering I've had it at the very least for 5 years, I'm going to go ahead and say value hasn't gotten better. And mine has a great stand, that Agon with a stand that does anything is 225 pounds, so pretty close to what I paid half a decade ago for a superior monitor.

    Hehe hardware in Canada is normally a significantly cheaper . I was even looking to buy from Canada , but transport fees + custom's was making the GPUs about the same price , so it was null point to do it :p . But yeah the PC monitor space is and was stagnant for a long time I would agree with that 100%

    i had the 32" (VA) AGON for five years before i upgraded and you can bet i scoured the market doing cost/benefit for a fast IPS.
    my Samsung G7 replaced the Agon for about the same price, but i bought the Agon when it was new before discounts.

    my other fast ips i use is not the price of the ones i recommend (i got a deal)
    but if you want newer tech at the 27" range you have to pony up if you want more than 1080p, the going rate for a QHD/1440p
    with QD/ fast refresh/ adaptive sync/ IPS/HDR is the $400 range. the killer right now (price drop) is the LG Ultragear with all of the above under $400 is the 27" GL-850(B)

    Is the ZE version a different panel than the C27G2U? I bought that monitor for someone (good price/specs) and that monitor should have been sent straight to the trash.

    Absolute terrible inverse ghosting made it unusable for gaming. Even basic desktop use ghosting was annoying

    I do not know d1stru3tor mentioned that they sell that monitor with better specs so all I did was check it's price vs what is presented here if I was in the market to buy a monitor I would have been scouring the internet to find any information possible about ghosting etc.
