I just built a gaming rig and I am going to go get a monitor for Black Friday. Best buy has these two monitors listed for sale on Black Friday. Which would you pick?

I have been seeing online that 1080 on a 27 inch isn't very good, but I kind of want IPS. I'm stuck and need some advice! Any info would help!

More about : 1920x1080

the lg is probably the better bet. they do make a lot of the panels other companies use, after all. the response time seems good to for gaming, and an ips monitor will taint your perspective, other monitors won't be the same.

I've had a 27" LG monitor previously and found it to be a great monitor so I would tend to lean in the LG direction. An IPS panel is a good panel and makes for a great display.

So you're basically saying that once you get an IPS, you won't want to go back? I just worry about the jump from a 24 1080 to a 27 1080 not being crisp enough. I definitely want the bigger monitor, I just don't know how much of a sacrifice in clarity it will be.

I went from a 25" to the 27" and would not go back , instead I continued and went even bigger and now game on a 30" 2560x1600 and cannot give that up for anything. If you have the cash you can look at the 27" monitor that has a 2560x1440p resolution , 1080p will be a thing of the past.

I don't really have the cash, that's why I want to snag one up on Black Friday. The resolution for that 27 inch is 1920x1080. Sometime in the future I will upgrade the monitor (probably a few years from now when higher resolutions are the norm) but for now do you think that a 27 at 1080 would be good enough for gaming?

Thanks a lot. I've really been fighting myself about what I want with a monitor. I want as big as I can get, within reason, and as good as I can get. I don't have any experience with anything bigger than a 19 inch (which was lent to me to get this gaming rig running) and I have been really worried about the overall clarity and sharpness of a 27 1080 over a 24 1080. Thanks for all the info, I think my mind is made up :)

I currently have on my desk a 23,8" DELL P2414H and a 27" DELL P2714H. Both 1920 x 1080.

I wanted to test them side by side before I make up my mind, then return one.

27": There is no pixelation, there is no blurring. There is no quality loss.
The image is slightly bigger than the 24" but the dot pitch is still so small that you need to get really close to the screen to actually see it.

Big images with lots of tiny details look better on the 27".
Photoshop and Illustrator look better on the 27" due to the small UI.
Most webpages look better on the 27", where I still have to zoom in 10-12 px fonts.

Games and movies? More immersive and sharp. Especially MMOs and racing games.

23,8":
It is more suitable for smaller desks.
