Anyone who has this monitor - Is this matte screen? what do you think about the monitor?
I had S2718D from staples before when it was on sale for $219.99. Despite its sleek and pretty look, the screen quality wasn't good - When I looked at the screen from the top, the screen looked like it did not look as clean as other IPS panel - not exactly like TN panel, but it looked like having black spots. I think it has to do with the glossy coating, but couldn't tell. I ended up returning it.

How is this one? This monitor model seems quite old(2014?). Has been on sale many times for around 220. The specs look good though.
Or any suggestion for a coding/youtube monitor with 2K/4K resolution, 27''/28'', not too bad builtin speaker under $250?

I have this monitor, and I am pretty pleased with the looks and performance. Im no pro that can hit all the highs and lows of the monitor, but I can tell you what I like. For the money this was the best choice for a 1440p monitor with an ips screen I could find. The screen isnt glossy, and there isnt any color shift that I can sense. I can overclock it to 84hz with nvidia software, but I leave it at 75hz (stock is 60hz). One thing I didnt like was how the bezel makes it look like you have more screen you can use. I messed around thinking i was having an issue with scaling, but that is just how the monitor is designed. It looks like a black border on the sides and top, but when the screen is showing a black picture you can tell those areas aren't illuminated. I whipped out a tape measure, and sure enough I was getting the 27" diagonal screen I paid for. Hope that helped

One more thing; the built in speakers aren't good at all, but with the headphone out you can pair it with a cheap chinese amp and goodwill speakers for a decent little experience. This would be good for equipment using audio carried through hdmi like maybe an xbox or playstation. I use the display port for my computer.

I purchased this monitor last year. I use it at work with my Dell 3100 tripple display USB 3 docking station. It is a matte screen. While it isn't actually edge to edge, the bezels are fairly sparse... Way better than the 2 1080p AOC microcenter displays that flank it... I do wish I had gone 4k. But there is nothing like this at this price. Also, I do t know that the docking station can handle 4k with 2 additional 1080p displays...

Just checking, but with the overclock did you take pictures at the lower iso100 setting to verify it wasn't dropping frames? https://www.testufo.com/frameskipping

I've seen tons of posts and have a suspicion that on some monitors they aren't being checked for dropped frames. I got an Asus which people online swore they got 75hz, which didn't go past 60, but it may have been manufacturing variance or unlucky batch (I tried HDMI, Displayport, and DVI). Right now I have an Acer G7 Series G257HU which doesn't do above 64hz, same specs on the panel so far as I can tell. (25vs27")

Thanks.

Yeah I dont know about taking pictures at iso100 or anything because all I know about that is low iso is a longer exposure for night shots or something. I did use that test frame skipping site ufo something or other. It didnt like me using firefox, but I tested it on firefox and microsoft edge. Both 75hz and 84hz registered and worked on both browsers though the site did seem to run better on edge. 75hz was smooth sailing, but 84hz did drop a frame once. 84hz was the very top of the spectrum so I expect some bugs. I dont want to run it full tilt for fear of higher stress on the monitor. So Im happy with a milder overclock.

You have to take a picture of your screen to know if it's actually skipping frames. 75 mine drops frames like crazy, like 68hz I take 10 pictures and only 2 or 3 will drop some. 64hz it won't drop any.

Frame Skipping Check: Test for dropped frames & missing display refreshes.

(1) Take photo of this screen with camera. Screenshots won't work. Use 1/10th second exposure or longer to capture multiple squares. If camera exposure can't be raised, decrease camera ISO and/or reduce monitor brightness, to make camera do longer exposures. If you see only 1 or 2 white squares in your photo, try again.

(2) Photo should not contain any popup messages. Take photo only when you see "READY" at bottom of page. "READY" means this test is ready to be photographed.

(3) Check photo for frame skipping. Compare to example good photo and example frameskipped photo. The photo should have a sequence of multiple solid squares, with no gaps in between. If there are gaps, then there is frame skipping. For an alternative testing tool, see Refresh Rate Multitool from shurcooL.

Yeah, im not going to mess with all that. I did put it in full screen and shot it in slowmo from my iphone 6s. Everything looked fine and smooth to me.
