Good 1080p monitor vs. decent 1440p

So I just upgraded my graphics card and am in the market for a new display, so I was wondering if it would be better to go with a high quality (144-120hz kinda stuff) 1080p monitor, or go for one of those korean/cheap 2560x1440 monitors. Any input appreciated. Thanks

    Korean 1440p monitors are far ahead of decent, arguably they are better than non imported ones depending on what you are after. Take the Qnix for example, its $300, PLS, and unlike anything you can buy with a proper brand, it doesn't have input lag (single input that plugs straight into the panel=no processing) and is near guaranteed to overclock to 96Hz. Downsides are the crap speakers, non adjustable stand and that you cant use it with a console.

    The only thing i was worrying about with those is the fairly common backlight bleed, and inability to get a replacement if anything goes wrong. Plus the good 1080p monitors are still cheaper at around 250-300$ for a 24in, vs 300$ish for a qnix, or a bit more for a perfect pixel one
  3. Pixel perfect is a scam, they don't actually check the monitors. You pay, say an extra $30 for a pixel perfect one, if you get it and it has more than two dead pixels, they refund the $30.
  4. That sucks... so what would you recommend? Just gamble on the Korean ones and hope I get a good one?
