No matter how good a computer is configured, it is finally presented in front of the player’s eyes is the screen displayed by the display, so it can be regarded as a perfect DIY combination. Among the many resolution and refresh rates, 2K and 144Hz refresh rates can be said to be the hottest combination at present.
Why choose 2K@144Hz display in 2K@144Hz?
The 2K@144Hz refreshing rate display has been a mainstream game device for a long time. This resolution and display of refresh rate combinations can not only bring clearer screens than 1080P in the current mainstream hardware capacity range, and also have a refresh rate far higher than 60Hz. Combining the two, players can enjoy a clearer picture, and they can also use the high refresh rate to get the opportunity in the competition. Among the messages of many display evaluation, many friends said that they wanted to see the evaluation of some popular mainstream monitors now.
So this time, we decided to take a look at the popular 2K@144Hz display on the market, what the performance of their performance is. However, even if everyone is a 2K@144Hz display, the price span of this level of display is still very large. The most expensive ones can go to 5 or 6,000, and the most mainstream of about 2,000 yuan can be traded. Considering that the 2K@144Hz display at the price of 2,000 yuan is more players think of cost -effectiveness, so we decided to use the 2K@144Hz display at this price at this price. The display is used as a test object.
Display and specifications
After a round of comparison/search, we set the following 9 display, namely Acer XV272U P, Samsung G5 (C27G55TQWC), Youpai VX2778-2K-PRO, ASUS VG27AQ1A, Skyworth F27G2Q, HKC IG27Q, Georga G27Q, AOC, AOC, AOC, AOC, AOC, AOC, AOC, AOC, AOC, AOC, AOC, AOC, AOC, AOC, AOC, AOC, AOC, AOC, AOC, AOC, AOC, AOC AG273QXe and Philips 275M8RZ. The following is the official specifications of the above display.
The appearance may not look at it at first glance that Philips 275M8RZ is a gaming display, because it gives people a simple feeling, which is not the same as the current game display. There are no RGB or wild games/science fiction elements. Instead, there is a little fashionable and commercial atmosphere. However, it is indeed a real game display with a 2K resolution and 165Hz refresh rate.
If a display is added, it is a game display, and HKG IG27Q is such a display. The front back of it has red as embellishment, plus its bracket base, at first glance, it is a gaming display. However, in addition to the appearance, HKG IG27Q also has good game characteristics, such as 2K resolution and 144Hz refresh rate, and a variable refresh rate.
Skyworth F27G2Q looks easy to give people a feeling of “it is a commercial display”, because its bracket is not the design of the game display at all, but the four or four parties, and it is still empty. However, if you turn the display over, you can see the entire RGB breathing light on the back of its back, and Skyworth F27G2Q itself also has a 2K sub -process and 165Hz refresh rate. You can also play the monitor of the game.
If the most wild appearance of this display this time, it must be AOC AG273QXe. Looking on the front, its racket base of the height and fork has already highlighted the personality of the game. When you come to the back, you can also see that there is a circle of RGB lights where the bracket and the display are connected to itself. The logo with its Agon can be said to be very eye -catching. With its 2K@165Hz specifications and the contrast of 3000: 1, I believe it can bring players a good experience.
As a member of Gigabyte’s new Gigabyte series, Gigabyte G27Q also inherits the tradition of other products in this series, that is, the design is pragmatic, and there will be not too many clever or good -looking things. The pure black design is low -key, and it can also give players a good look. GICS G27Q itself has a 2K resolution and 144Hz refresh rate. As a mainstream display, it has fully met the mainstream standard.
Acer XV272U P
Acer’s XV272U P can be said to be a “different” display in this Heng review, because it uses a round bracket base, which allows it to be placed in almost anywhere. In addition, because the circular base is used, the Acer XV272U P can also rotate at a horizontal level of 360 degrees, which is very elastic to players. Of course, its game quality is also very good. The 2K score rate with the 144Hz refresh rate is also the most mainstream configuration.
Samsung’s G series display last year can be said to make many people eye -opening, and the G5 is the most mainstream model in the G series, and it is also the only curved display in our horizontal review. This display using the VA panel has maintained consistency with the G7 and G9 in appearance design. In terms of parameters, the Samsung G5 has a curvature, 2K resolution, and 144Hz refresh rate.
Youpai’s VX2778-2K-PRO can be said to be the most solid texture in the Heng review. It has a all -metal bracket base, and the bracket part is also very uniquely added with red stripes, which is not an exaggeration to say that it is finishing touch. Although this monitor is not raised, this does not affect its overall perception. Like other monitors, the Youpai VX2778-2K-PRO has a 2K resolution and the 144Hz refresh rate.
ASUS VG27AQ1A is a mainstream -level display in its TUF e -sports agent series. In terms of design, ASUS VG27AQ1A does not use a split bracket base like the XG or PG series display. Instead, the most classic and most practical square base is used to greatly reduce the position of the display. There is also a circle of red circles for embellishment on the base, and the overall appearance is very calm and comfortable. In terms of parameters, ASUS VG27AQ1A certainly has a 2K resolution and 165Hz refresh rate.
After our daily monitor evaluation, we summarized a set of evaluation standards that can relatively balanced the display performance and quality of the display. First of all, it is necessary to explain that because the appearance of the display is a subjective aesthetic, different people will have a large difference in appearance. In addition, this time we focus on the display quality of the display itself. Therefore Essence
The color performance and response time of the display is the most important scoring standard for our horizontal evaluation this time. These two projects represent the feeling of the picture showing the screen when watching the display, and whether it will feel that there is a response in actual games. Any situation of muddy water.
In terms of color, we only test the display of the display of the display. This is considering that it is not of great significance to calibrate a two -thousand -dollar game display. In addition, most players will want to buy the display after they want to buy the display. The display is corrected, and the display of the display factory is very important at this time.
The response time is the same important for gamers, especially players who often play e -sports games. Similarly, the response time adjustment when different displayers leave the factory are also different. This is also a place to test the manufacturer’s skills, so we also need to focus on testing this. In summary, in the two aspects of color and response time, we each give 45%and 40%of the score proportion.
In terms of price, since we have been tested after the price is screened, the proportion of the price will not be high. However, because there are 1899 yuan in the test monitor, and some are 2299 yuan, it still needs a certain proportion to show the difference between them, so we finally decided to give the price of 20%.
Although most players should also be facing the display when playing games, how much a display of a display can represent how much elasticity can be given to the player when it is placed in different locations, dual -screen or sub -screen, so We give 10%of this part.
The proportion of the two parts of the OSD function and refresh rate is 5%. OSD features may be unlikely to use after setting the display at the beginning. Even if the response time is set, it is a single thing.
In terms of refresh rate, this Heng Rating was originally designed for the 144Hz refresh rate. In addition, the refresh rate after 144Hz may double to 240Hz or even 280Hz to feel. The difference between the observation between 144Hz and 165Hz or 170Hz, unless the player itself has writing wheel eyes, it is impossible to feel, which is why we only give the refresh rate of 5%. However, for a display that is higher than 144Hz in this horizontal review rate, we will increase it by 0.5 points for it.
Test platform and explanation
The platform for this test is also the platform we use to test the display daily, and the software and hardware have not been replaced. In terms of testing software, we will continue to use the Calman Ultimate for testing. The instrument also keeps the same set of I1 Display Pro Plus school color and I1 Pro 2 brightness meter.
The test of the nine monitors at the factory is settled by the factory, so all color patterns and response time settings are set up by default, but all monitors will turn off VRR.
The display of the screen of the display factory screen
In this part, we will test the average contrast of the display, the maximum brightness in the SDR mode, the gamma value, the white balance, the color gamut, and the color accuracy.
Average screen contrast
The first is the screen average contrast test. In this link, we will divide the entire screen into 16 areas, and then measure its contrast each region separately. This is also our commonly used ANSI contrast test. Compared with the general test of screen center comparison, the ANSI contrast test can accurately reflect the average contrast of each area and the overall screen. The larger the contrast gap in each area, the more it means that the screen part of the screen may have uneven problems when playing high contrast content.
Because the higher the contrast, the greater the visual impact, the higher the ratio of our scoring standard.
High contrasting degree is the characteristic of the VA panel. Therefore, in this link, which display uses the VA panel to get high scores. The Samsung G5 and AOC AG273QXE using the VA panel and AOC AG273QXE lead the display of other IPS panels with 2387: 1 and 2640: 1.
Other IPS panel displays are lingering between 1000: 1. Among them, the Gigabyte G27Q with the highest contrast is 1043: 1, while the lowest is the 903: 1 of Skyworth F27G2Q. The latter’s screen area is also the largest, the highest comparison is 1058: 1, and the lowest is only 491: 1.
SDR mode peak brightness
Next is the test of brightness. Although the brightness is not as high as the better, the brightness needs to be determined by the space where the user is located, but the higher brightness can give users more flexibility. Therefore, the higher the score is higher, the higher the score. As for why it is the brightness in the SDR mode without the brightness in the HDR mode, this is because a considerable part of the display of the monitor this time does not support the HDR mode. Bring a good HDR gaming experience, so this time the horizontal review will not be tested for HDR brightness.
This test was taken by AOC AG273QXe with 568 NITs. The second place is the Youpai VX2778-2K-PRO. As for the brightness of other monitors, most of them are in the range of 300+ nits. The brightness of the Acer XV272U P is unexpected, because its maximum brightness is only 185.8 Nits, which is much darker than other monitors.
However, one thing to note is that in daily use, even if the brightness of 300 nits can be dazzling, the brightness of 180+ nits is not a problem in the use of ordinary rooms.
For many users, what a display does not want to see is that the picture is uneven, and some areas are dark or white than other places. This is why we will add screen uniformity test this time. In this test, the screen will be divided into 9 areas, with the central area as the standard to test how much deviation in the surrounding area and the central area. The smaller the deviation ΔE value, the more uniform it means.
In terms of scoring, we will use the maximum ΔE value of the screen of the display as the basis. The ΔE can get a full score in less than 2. The larger the value, the lower the score. It can be seen that most of the monitors of the test test have different degrees of uniformity deviations. The best performance is ASUS VG27AQ1A. The maximum uniformity ΔE is only 2.9, and the overall uniformity of the screen is within 2.0 to 2.9, uniformly uniformly The overall control is better.
The maximum uniform ΔE is Philips 275m8RZ, and ΔE goes to 5.8. Judging from the picture of the uniformity of the screen, the area in the lower left corner reached 5.8. This shows that there is a certain uneven problem between this area and the center and even other areas. It is far from the point where it cannot be accepted. Generally, users will basically not be aware of this uniformity deviation, unless unless the deviation of this uniformity, unless unless the deviation of this uniformity, unless the deviation of this uniformity, unless it is unless the deviation of this point, unless it is unless the deviation of the deviation of this point, unless unless it is unless The screen is only possible to discover in a single color.
As for the uniformity of other monitors, most of them are within the range of 3 to 4, and they are completely in the acceptable range.
Gamma value and white balance ΔE
Gamma value and white balance are important factor affecting the gray level. The former will affect the overall brightness of the gray level. If the gamma value of a display follows the gamma value curve of the color gamut it used, then any shadow part in the screen can be restored well. If the gamma is too low, the shadow will become thicker, so it will lose the details. On the contrary, the shadow will fade, which will make people feel gray. White balance ΔE refers to the gray levels of different degrees of gray, such as 10%white, 40%white, 80%white, and so on. The lower the ΔE value, the more accurate the display effect.
Let’s take a look at gamma’s results first. It should be said here that because the display of this horizontal review is not the default SRGB color gamut, or the color gamut of the default Display P3, and the latter’s gamma curve is the same as SRGB, so this time we get closer to the closer to the closer 2.2 The higher the score is the scoring standard.
It can be seen that in this test, the closest to 2.2 is the ASUS VG27AQ1A, followed by Philips 275M8RZ and HKC’s IG27Q, both of which are lower or higher than 2.2. Most of the nine displays are not far from SRGB and Display P3 standards 2.2 Gamma values. Only Gigabyte G27Q, Acer XV272U P and AOC AG273QXE are slightly higher.
In the aspect of white balance, we will use ΔE to be less than 2 as a full score standard. As long as the white balance ΔE of the display is less than 2, it can take 3 points. If it is greater than 2, it will be scored in proportion. In this test, we can see that the performance of the display is divided into 3 grades. Acer XV272U P and Youpai VX2778-2K-PRO are ranked with white balance ΔE2.6 and 3.8, respectively, Giga G27Q, Skyworth F27G2Q , ASUS VG27AQ1A and Samsung G5 are in the second echelon with 3.8 to 4, while Philips 275M8RZ, AOC AG273QXe, and HKC IG27Q are in the post -comparison position.
To be honest, the author does not expect the white balance performance of the two monitors of AOC and HKC will have such a big room for progress. Perhaps this is a problem with a single display. However, as long as the player does not use these two displays to perform the tasks of the image post -processing, I believe that the impact on daily use should also be within the acceptable range.
In this link, because the default color gamut of each display is different, we will use the default pattern color gamut as the display. In order to facilitate everyone’s comparison, we will also display the color gamut coverage of each display under different color gamuts.
The highest score in this link is Samsung G5 (SRGB), followed by Youpai VX2778-2K-PRO (DCI-P3) and Philips 275M8RZ (DCI-P3). However, in this link, most of the gaps between DCI-P3 color gamut display are not large. Except for AOC AG273QXe and Acer XV272U P, the color gamuts of other DCI-P3 displays are hovering between 92%and 95%. It can be said that it is between Bo Zhong.
The biggest difference is the display of the default SRGB color gamut. The Samsung G5 and the ASUS VG 27AQ1A are 20%of the color gamut. However, although the ASUS VG27AQ1A reaches 109%of the SRGB color gamut, due to the more than 100%color gamut, the color gamut overflow causes part of the color to be inaccurate, so it cannot be given full score.
Color quasi ΔE
In addition to a good color gamut, a good display also requires good enough color to truly restore the intention of the content creator for the picture. The two are indispensable. Therefore, in this link, we will measure the average and maximum color accurate ΔE of the display, as well as the average and maximum color saturation ΔE.
Color standard ΔE is better and better, 0 is equal to no error. However, the smaller the color standard ΔE, the smaller the difference between the human eye can be seen. Generally speaking, the less ΔE is less than 2 is already quite good, and it is difficult to find errors in human eyes. Therefore, here we will use 2 as the standard for the average ΔE. The closer to the score of 2, the higher the score, and the automatic score is automatically scored, and the automatic 0 points greater than 5. Among the two items of the maximum color accurate/saturation ΔE, the closer to 4 points, the higher the ΔE more than 10 points. Because some monitors are SRGB color gamut and some are DCI-P3 color gamuts, we decided to uniformly use their color accuracy in the default mode as the score basis.
In summary, the best performance of the color standard ΔE is the Acer XV272U P. Its average color accurate ΔE is 2.58, the maximum color accurate ΔE is 4.4, and the gap between the average value and maximum value is the smallest among the 9 monitors. Although it does not reach the level of average ΔE less than equal to 2, it is rare for a game display of two thousand yuan.
After the Acer XV272U P is the Skyworth F27G2Q. The average color accuracy ΔE of this display is better than the Acer XV272U P. The average ΔE is only 2.17, which is very good, but its maximum color accurate ΔE is 6.36, a little higher than Acer.
The last one is HKC IG27Q and AOC AG273QXe. The average color accuracy ΔE of these two monitors is above 4, and the maximum color accurate ΔE exceeds 10, so the score will be relatively low.
Color saturation ΔE
In terms of color saturation, the Acer XV272U P still obtained the highest score, but the second place was replaced by Philips 275M8RZ.
In fact, we already have a hard requirement for the refresh rate, that is, it is more than 144Hz. The nine monitors of the test are obviously in line with this standard (cough), but some of them are 165Hz, so we will make a full score with 144Hz, and the additional 0.5 points above the 144Hz.
Here, Philips 275M8RZ, ASUS V27AQ1A, and Skyworth F27G2Q all scored the highest score at the 165Hz refresh rate, and other monitors ranked second with 144Hz.
However, the visual experience of 144Hz and 165Hz, 170Hz, and even 180Hz are similar, because the refresh rate of 144Hz has been high compared to 60Hz. If you need to improve the refresh rate, only 240Hz can be almost doubled twice as can you only twice the twice the 240Hz. It feels like. The refresh rate between 144Hz and 180Hz can basically ignore the improvement of human eyes, so everyone does not have to tangle to say which is better for 165Hz and 144Hz.
I believe that many players have to respond to one of the game display. The most impact of response time for players is the shadow. The serious laug is not necessarily caused by the response time, but the higher the response time, the more severe the lighting shadow, and the more it is not conducive to the gaming experience. But at the same time, if the manufacturer is pressed to the panel to reduce the response time, excessive pressure will also cause the picture to show up the residual shadow, which is commonly known as ghost shadow and picture jitter.
The tests here will be performed by 0%, 20%, 40%, 60%, 80%, and 100%white color blocks, which are light to dark to dark to light -colored conversion tests. The response time required for the degree conversion, the measurement time range is calculated from more than 10%, until 90%of the target color, each conversion time will be measured 8 times each time. The response time level of the display will be set to the default.
We will score the average response time of the monitor and the percentage of the average counter -residual shadow. The standard for the average response time is that the lower the value, and the percentage of the average counter -residual shadow is 0%, 0 to 1%is 16 points, 1 to 2%is 12 points, 2 to 4%is 8 points. 4 to 6%are 4 points, and greater than 6%are 0 points. As for why greater than 6%is 0 points, this is because at this time, the anti -residual shadow is very obvious to the naked eye, which will seriously affect the game experience.
Because the response time or pressure setting of each display is different, we will list the default response time of these 9 display.
At the same time, in order to facilitate the response time of different displays under different grayscale conversion, we will also turn all the display from 0 to 100%white from 0 to 100%of the transition results, the average increase and decrease time, the fastest and slowest response from the fastest and slowest response from 0 to 100%white. Time and black-white black response time is released.
In the test of a simple average response time, the Acer XV272U P won the first place with an average of 3.2 milliseconds, followed by ASUS VG27AQ1A and Samsung G5. It is worth noting that these displays are pressed by default to varying degrees, so the response time is normal. In the default display without any pressure, HKC’s IG27Q ranked fourth with a score of 6.62 milliseconds, which was a little faster than the Gigabyte G27Q that was pressed to Balance. The Philips 275M8RZ without any pressure ranked at the end with 8.82 milliseconds.
One more interesting thing is that the Acer XV272U P is the fastest display of the response time, but if the fastest single conversion response time is to say, the Samsung G5 and AOC AG273QXE of the VA panel are used. The response speed can reach less than 1 milliseconds. However, Samsung G5 and AOC AG273QXe also include the last one or two of the slowest response time, and the slowest response time exceeds 20 milliseconds. If you take a closer look, the two monitors also reach the fastest response time in the conversion of 80%to 100%white, and the slowest response time also appears in the conversion of 0%to 20%white.
Anti -residual shadow
As described above, pressurizing the panel has the opportunity to cause the emergence of anti -residual shadows. Among the four displays with the default pressurization of the factory this time, there are 3 phenomena of anti -residual shadows, and the 3 models are three models. Get the top three players at the average response time. Among them, Acer XV272U P’s average inverse shadow percentage is the highest. Asus VG27AQ1A appears as many times as Acer, but the percentage of anti -residual shadows is not so high.
Although the OSD part may not be exposed to most players after adjusting it once, if OSD is difficult to use, it will cause inconvenience if the player needs to adjust the display. This is mainly the convenience of testing the display OSD operation method.
In this test, the full score is the ASUS VG27AQ1A display, because although it has 3 shortcut keys, the main adjustment is controlled by a 5 -axis game pole, and this corresponding change from the operating game rod to the OSD interface changes The time is the shortest, and it is relatively agile to control.
Gigabyte G27Q, Samsung G5, Acer XV272U P and AOC AG273QXE3 are also operated with a 5 -axis game rod, but the response speed is slightly slower.
From Philips 275M8RZ, other monitors are controlled by the left and right keys and menu keys. It is not as convenient as the game rod, and because the keys are on the bottom or right side of the back of the monitor, it takes a little time to explore the position of the correct keys. Cumbersome.
The last HKC IG27Q, in addition to the above inconvenience, one point is that the adjustable options of OSD are less than other monitors. Dividement, not elasticity.
The adjustable angle of the display is actually similar to the OSD above OSD. It is a long time that it will not need to be used for a long time after adjustment. However Some players need this extra elasticity. This part will test the maximum angle of the level of the display, pitch, and vertical rotation.
In this session, Acer XV272U P and AOC AG273QXE ranked one or two in more than 9 points. The Youpai VX2778-2K-PRO, which can also rotate vertically, also ranked third.
It is worth noting that in the display of this test, many of them do not support horizontal rotation, which means that if you want to rotate the screen, the entire display must be turned together. In addition, many display brackets are bifurcated for bifurcation. This is a unfavorable factor for players with less space desktop space.
Of course, the price is also a consideration that players are more concerned. All the prices are taken from JD.com on April 13th. The actual daily price may be different.
Super exponential index
After a round of testing, we summarized the super -energy index of the 9 display in the test, and the results were as follows:
Display award and summary
After a comprehensive test of multiple projects, we have awarded the following product recommendation awards:
-Che Pai VX2778-2K-PRO
Youpai VX2778-2K-PRO obtained one of the highest scores in this Heng review. Perhaps the single score of this monitor is not the most prominent, but it is relatively not short -board in combination, and the highest brightness in its SDR mode is also the second highest. In a very bright environment, playing games will not see the content on the screen.
Whether it is color, response time, or other aspects, it is a very balanced existence. Players are using it to watch movies or playing games. It is a good choice.
Skyworth F27G2Q has the color performance that is not as good as Youpai VX2778-2K-PRO, and has the same advantages in terms of price and refresh rate. Although its response time is not the best, don’t forget that this display does not open OverDrive’s pressure by default. If the player wants to get a better response time, you only need to open this settings. In general, Skyworth F27G2Q is a display that is also very thoughtful.
Acer XV272U P
The super -energy index of Acer XV272U P may not be the highest, but its response time is the best in the 9 display in this test, even faster than the second faster display. Although the anti -residual shadow will appear in the default mode, the official also provides several levels of OverDrive settings for players to choose from, and sacrifice a little response time to reduce the anti -residual shadow.
This display is actually not bad, ranking third in this Heng Rating. Although it has done a good job in response time and anti -residual shadow, there is still a lot of room for improvement in color performance.
Flying Pu 275M8RZ
Flying Pu 275M8RZ is not bad in all aspects, but its factory adjustment is more conservative by default. Therefore, as long as the player is willing to adjust it manually, there is still a lot of progress room.
Its performance in color test projects is not bad, and the response time is even more in the middle and upstream positions. However, because the natural characteristics of the VA panel, the response time of the Samsung G5 can be very fast, but at the same time, it is really slow, and there will be anti -residual shadows, which have certain requirements for the screen scenery.
The response time of this display is even more faster in this horizontal review, which is also more powerful, but there will also be a relatively obvious anti -residual shadow. It is best to lower the pressure option when using it. class.
If the player’s requirements for color are not particularly high, then HKC IG27Q can also be a choice. However, it should be noted that the OSD interface using this display may require a little patience.
This display is a very good choice for players who need high brightness and contrast. The brightness and contrast in the SDR mode are far ahead of most of the other participating displays. It should be a good choice for watching movies. Essence
