    I'm stuck between these 3 monitors. The HP 27xi AOC i2757fh or the Viewsonic VX2770SMH-LED 27

    They all look similar, but I'm just not sure which one to get. I'm leaning toward the HP 27xi though, but this site rated the AOC i2757fh a little higher over the HP 27xi. I'd like to hear some feedback from you guys.

    My main usage is playing games like BF3/BF4, SWTOR and Titanfall when it comes out. I also do a lot of web surfing and occasional movie watcher on this monitor. My current monitor is a 24 inch Asus VW246H and I like it, but I don't love it. So my main concern is how well it displays games. I don't want any ghosting and the least amount of input lag I can find. Now, I know the AOC boasts a slightly quicker response time of 5ms vs the HP's 7 seconds, but the reviews I've read thus far state there is no visual lag from the HP. What do you guys suggest? Thanks in advance!

    Really? No one has an opinion on this?

    Personally, I would go by spec and not reviews simply because you don't know the reviewer or what level of detail they look at. Just because reviews on the HP say they haven't noticed any visual lag doesn't mean you won't (should also state that you may not notice it either if you bought the monitor!). The item specs and weighing that up against cost and your personal needs / wants is the only realistic way to do it.

    Thanks, yes I've been doing that as well, and I believe they use the same panel, so there are very few differences between the two. As far as differences go they are pretty identical. The HP weighed a couple pounds more than the AOC, so I'm leaning toward the HP at this point.
