Nixeus PRO Vue 27P 27-inch IPS QHD Monitor Review

Viewing Angles, Uniformity, Response & Lag

The PRO Vue 27P offers typical IPS viewing angle performance. Light fall off to the sides isn’t too bad, and there’s a slight shift to green. From the top, output is down by about half, but color stays consistent and detail is preserved reasonably well. Nixeus uses an AH-IPS panel, so it doesn’t have the superior off-axis image of an AHVA monitor but it easily outperforms VA and TN screens.

Our PRO Vue 27P sample was not without flaws in the black field test. We could see light bleed at the edges of the upper-left and lower-right corners. This spoiled what would have been a decent result because the remaining zones were quite close to one another in brightness. Luckily, the problem disappeared once signal levels were increased. At 100%, uniformity is a superb 3.48%; nearly a record in our database. Only a couple of displays have ever scored better.

Color uniformity is equally impressive at a tiny .51dE variation from low to high. Anything but the darkest content will look very smooth and unblemished on the Nixeus. And with our sample, only the above-mentioned corners are affected.

Clearly the PRO Vue 27P is not a gaming monitor; and Nixeus doesn’t market it as such. It offers IPS-typical performance for a 60Hz display. 25ms means a reasonably responsive panel with average motion blur. That means the quickest moving action will be soft in resolution, but motion with a more casual pace looks fine. There is no overdrive function here, but we didn’t see any excessive blur or ghosting in our test patterns. Input lag is fairly business-like at 88ms total. On-screen action runs a little behind our control inputs, but most games are still playable by those of moderate skill. We’re a bit spoiled by the fast refresh monitors that normally grace our test bench. The Nixeus will be competent enough for most users.

    Junk. Wow basically the old Overlord housing and setup without the high refresh rate. I was surprised to hear Nixeus was still selling these cheap, low level monitors. Identical setups, and in many cases better monitors, can be had all over eBay for less with shipping direct from those Chinese and South Korean suppliers that Nixeus outsourced their parts and build from.

    Will someone ever do a 16:10 (2560x1600) 27" screen? I really miss that useful extra vertical real estate every time I use a 16:9 screen.

    That would be tough since those are generally 30" monitors.

    Not all of us have space (or money) for a 30"er. I just don't see why 16:10 gets no love from panel makers, because it's just... better (imo).

    What would be great to see is if one of these companies took a 27" monitor (IPS panel) with multiple inputs and added a TV-like remote that allowed users to power on/off, change inputs, and allowed volume changes without scrolling through a menu. Few manufacturers seem to make a <28" TV that is higher than 720P these days in smaller forma factors, and even those seem to still be TN panels (horrible for TV because of poor off-axis viewing). For locations like bedrooms, the monitor could serve as a computer monitor and also a viewing source for cable television. Many do need need a TV tuner these days, as most providers require a decode box. Moreover, many bedrooms cannot accommodate a 32"+ TV that serves as a TV and a monitor (yes, I know some of you can and likely do). We have two TN panels on 23.6" TVs (FullHD) that I would like to replace with something better, but the market seems to have gotten no better than these 2009-2010 panels for the smaller size. Computer monitors have progressed so far-- just give me a usable remote!

    I upgraded this year to the ROG Swift 34" Gsync from ASUS. Great monitor. I have an older 27" 1440 IPS for a second monitor.

    Before Gsync I would run 3 1440 panels - 1 Overlord and 2 Chinese eBay models from Yamakasi all overclocked.
