Tips for buy of 27 inch monitor: AOC I2757 or HP EliteDisplay e271i?

Hi guys.

So I'm looking to buy my first 27 inch monitor, and I have my eyes on the AOC I2757FH (or FM?) monitor or the HP EliteDisplay e271i. The obvious pros and cons are the HDMI connector on the AOC, which I could live without and then the $55 reduction which is not a decisive factor. However it does have the almost invisible borderline, which is really attractive for a dual display setup.

For both monitors the reviews are excellent, so it's a tough race. Any personal experience or critical issues I might have overlooked?

Thank you.

  1. If you are going to spend $300+(USD) on a monitor, I say go for a 2560x1440. I personally own on of these, and it is a great monitor for the price. Once you go above 1080p you will never look back.

    Don't live near a Microcenter? This is also good 2560 x 1440 at a low price.

  2. The problem is that the price range of the 2560 x 1440 monitors are quite high in Denmark. The EliteDisplay is $420 and the cheapest is the Philips Brilliance 272C4QPJKAB which costs $545. The two monitors you are linking to are not even available in Denmark unfortunately.
  3. Sorry about that. Damn Americans thinking everyone else lives in the United States. Both of these monitors look great, but the 5ms response time, the great reviews, and the slimmer bezel on the AOC would have me leaning that way.
  4. I bought the I2757FH and I'm pretty satisfied until now. The only thing cons is that is has no DVI connection, lousy software (default on chinese) and then obviously the low resolution. Otherwise it performs well and looks splendid.
