    Hi guys, I make this since some of us would like to know what kind of monitor you consider perfect for your needs for next year and what you are willing to pay.

    May you be so kind guys and make posts with price you would expect your monitor of choice to come at/ how much are you willing to pay?
    I'll intend to extract data from poll later and will make correlation as accurate as posible.

    Since limit for Poll is 12 options, i could not add Price Ranges:
    - under $199
    - $200 ~ $399
    - $400 ~ $549
    - $550 ~ $699
    - $700 and more
    (or simply write to your post how much you are willing to pay)

    3D Technology:
    - No 3D
    - Passive 3D (LG FPR with polarized glasses)
    - Active 3D (nVidia Vision3D/ Samsung/Sony/...)

    You may mention connectivity, but that is side feature which does not define usability these days, We are interested only in things which affects contents and things monitor can/is used for.

    Feel free to mention any other category which is not mentioned (make category as bold text).

    Voted.

    I more or less want a curved IPS (or OLED) ultrawide capable of 100Hz or higher, Freesync/Gsync would be a bonus. I'd be willing to spend around £400-500 depending on the product.

    I am willing to pay $650 for 27" screen with 1440p resolution and Freesync running at least 120Hz (being IPS) and having passive 3D.
    Sound - Not needed
    Pivot - Expected

    Id glady pay for a 4K untrawide 144Hz G-Sync monitor. Then i'd keep it locked up until I can run that bad boy on a single video card. :wanker:

    Personally I want an ultrawide with a high refresh rate and deep dark blacks. OLED would be nice but that's probably a long way off.

    you need to list monitor ports: VGA, DVI, HDMI, DP

    i went with a benq 27" monitor 2560x1440 which had all those ports because i often connect a 2nd and sometimes a 3rd computer when doing stuff and fixing other computers.
    the qnix monitors are attractive but because they only have a single DVI connection was the deal breaker for me.

    1440p
    G-sync
    CURVED
    (maybe U-wide @ 3440x1440,I am between 16:9 vs 21:9..)


    3D...untill IPS will drop to 1ms we won't see that and I think it will take a while..reason? VR is their next target to bring to consuming public group and it seems as they stick to that only. I really like it when I had it..Only those who play or have played in 3D know how much better is the fun,the immersion,the feeling etc. Too bad that we can't have them all. (though IMHO it's not worth to pay for everything)
    So I guess that goes more than 1K euros ,this is my ultimate limit for a monitor that will NOT have so many problems for such kind of money!!
    examples? Asus rog swift(first G-Sync @1440 you will say), Acer XB27HU(first IPS 1440 with G-sync you will say..) = I don't want to be just their "investor" and I am surely not a gambler...

    I think we all know that we are on a fast-and-competitive-during-tough-times-for-all-companies "transition era" for -gaming- monitors but that's what happens all the time with caps & chips, isn't it?

    For anyone interested about size comparison there is a fine calculator.Check it out if you want:

    wow..I just saw that Acer will release the XR341CKA model...
    34-inch
    curved (21:9,you know.. 3,440×1,440)
    Ips
    G-Sync
    and (OMG..) 100% sRGB color gamut !

    Also 1299 should be the price as I saw ...

    >34", 21:9 flicker free, curved, glossy OLED @ ~120hz with gsync/freesync and at least 1440p res

    =thats the dream i would pay quite a lot for.

    Slowly getting there... slowly... but moving way faster than a few years ago.

    I might get either a 1440p or a 4K monitor not sure if I am getting a Gsync or a Freesync but I am aiming for either 120 or 144hz and I am going to get an IPS monitor. Might be willing to spend no more than $400-600 bucks

    Glad I'm not alone in my desire for a good curved screen, if there's a market for it we'll see one suitable to our needs eventually.

    How on earth does a tn screen with no votes. Everybody`s selections is listed in the pole. Staying away from 4k until 2 cards can run games at very high selection and eye candy at or near may settings . Pascal might do the trick. Gsync I def want to try out as its been called a gamechanger by many.
    TBH audio interests me more nowaday, I`d be more likely to get a higher power can amp as both the hd650 and he500 would benefit from the more power and I got a hankering now to do some tube rolling and maybe a better set of cans eventually to, those these 2 cans are keeping me pretty happy at the moment. I doubt I would buy another dac as this one I have is upgradeable and cost me almost 500 for the uber option and usb option on the Bifrost,

    Sort of surprised myself considering the oddball TN support we've seen recently. It seems nobody really wants them anymore.

    Poll is about what you want to have as a monitor for near future 1~3years and how much, would you pay if someone brought that into market.

    Most of us on TN panels know how bad IQ it gives in comparison to IPS/VA types.
    (We are forced by other more necessary parameters to it. Like refresh rate, pixel gtg time.)
    I would put myself under OLED technology, but I have price limit and I took that into consideration. I do not expect anyone to deliver all I want and OLED instead of IPS in that price.
    But I think that around 2017/18 OLED manufacturing costs may touch IPS. (as it requires less components)

    Basically, I would accept any OLED monitor really, it needs to be 27" if it is bigger I don't mind, 60-120hz is okey, freesync is welcomed, 1440p as a minimum, aspect ratio could be 16:9 16:10 or 21:9, don't care for 3D/4k or whether its curved or flat

    I would gladly pay up to 700$ for this, in 2025 I guess

    Curved 4K IPS/OLED 50" or greater, 100+ HZ with freesync because I support open standards. Plus whatever GPU needed to power it on next gen engines (at least Crysis 3 on Ultra details as a benchmark).

    Seriously saving for this already. 8 years on my current HDTV is a good run and ITCHING to upgrade! :D

    Tn panel is dying..IPS (and similar "brand" names due to silly copyrights..) is the nowdays step even for gaming, OLED is..well we see next year.
    Oh,I forgot mark my words,for almost about a year now(and still for some months will) talk about best TN monitors with fast resp. time,120 or 144 hz,G-sync (and now Freesync as well) PWM - flicker free etc, from this upcoming Autumn the threads and questions (etc) will be on IPS,fast resp,more than 60hz and flicker free stuff AND the next standard about gaming will be curved and mostly on 21:9 A.R..remember that. (curved gaming...that's the name)

    and (lol..:nerd:...) you've see this..right ?

    IPS (not TN and not sure about VA)
    500€ (less is better)
    Display port
    No audio.
    Having USB-port or few would not be a bad thing.

    Not sure if I want to have curved monitor or not. Prolly making it curved just increases production costs and causes some picture quality problems.

    No picture quality problems for decent monitors.
