Monitor Advice and Recommendations.

My Dell 2716dgr just died on me. I dont know what happened but midway through games I smelt a burning smell and not it won't power on at all. Im looking for a solid 27inch 1440p or 4k monitor for gaming and so on. Im currently looking at Gigabytes FI27Q-P or LG GL850 or GN950 if I can find it.

Odyssey G7 is a good one too. And has HDR600 if you are into that sort. Also 240hz refresh.

I heard a lot about image warping and bad colors from the G7 but that may have just been the 32inch model. How is the G7 compared to the GL/GN850?

Well the GN850 is still a very good monitor if that's all you can get in your area.

The worst part is I am just in a random chunk of the States. For some reason, cough cough, we can't seem to get a lot of different tech options shipped safely to the US these days. :T

Okay so after doing a fair bit of research I am stuck with an awkward situation. The MSI is just out of the cards currently as the US is not getting most new tech thanks to our you know what situation. However, there are some good black friday deals going on currently. The LG GN850(2020 GL850 with no usb hub) is 400$(300GBP) which is a great deal. However I have heard the Dell S2721DGF is overall the best Nano IPS monitor. While it does often go on sale for about the same as the GN850 it is not CURRENTLY on sale so it is 500$(400GBP). Now the Odyssey G7, apparently all of its issues have been fixed and it seems to have the best overall color experience because it ether matches or is just slightly trails behind its IPS competitors while having far better blacks. It is also on sell, but, it is still the most expensive at 600$(500GBP). So, as always, I come to you guys for the deciding factor on these things because I value this communities opinions. Is it worth the extra money for the refresh rate and darker blacks or should I go with the maximum value currently available?

Nano IPS is a good option. However, I have the G7 and after all the fixes, I can safely say its one hell of an all rounder monitor.

The HDR in some games is superb once you get the settings right. But basedon the options you list above. They are all really good.

I opted for the G7 for the 240hz.
