    There is an IPS panel with GSync technology, even of another type, which has no such problems?
    I look for a monitor with high resolution to play and watch movies

    It depends whether you are after a 144Hz refresh rate or whether you feel a significantly lower refresh rate is sufficient. There is a comprehensive list of G-SYNC compatible monitors including resolutions, refresh rates and panel types here – https://pcmonitors.info/others/nvidia-g-sync-variable-refresh-rate-technology/.

    Even a lower frequency may be sufficient. The most important thing for me is that the IPS panel is reliable and no defects of type

    I’m afraid no monitor out there, except studio-grade displays with absolute guarantees on such a thing, can be guaranteed to be defect free. This is why it’s important to buy from somewhere with a good returns policy. And to not get bogged down by negative feedback – because if you look hard enough and the model is at least semi-popular, you will find that for every single model out there.

    So either go for the AOC as you originally planned, or take your pick from the list I linked to in my previous post and prioritise what is important. At least, things you can control – which does not include having a guarantee of ‘no defects’. As I’ve mentioned in relevant reviews the defect rate of the 144Hz AHVA panels and monitors which use them is higher than average and that is why they aren’t currently featured in the recommendations section. That isn’t meant to put you off going for it if you are confident with your ability to return it if you’re not satisfied, because in that case you’ve got little to lose except time.

    Thanks, I’ll try with Amazon 🙂
    But if I am lucky enough to find a good panel, I can feel comfortable? Defects can occur even after a few weeks?
    When I get my new monitor, I can upload to have your opinion?

    Generally defects will be there before you actually receive the monitor. You can of course discuss any issues, but be aware that uploading images of ‘backlight bleed’ is not helpful unless you are able to adjust the exposure of the camera so that it accurately reflects what your eye sees. It’s probably best that you assess things like that during your normal usage rather than going looking for issues. You can of course test for pixel defects and post images showing any weird artifacts if you come across any.

    In the recommended section, I saw the Asus ROG SWIFT PG348Q Ultrawide 34 ‘Gsyn.
    This must be a super Monitor. I begin to evaluate it

    Ok, to I have to repeat myself (sorry for that)…
    I’m a little bit closer to buying new LCD but before I do that I have to be sure that there is nothing better waiting in the future. At the moment I’d like to get AOC AG271QG mostly because it’s more common in Poland and quite cheaper then Asus or others. But I don’t see any problem in waiting even few months if I knew there would be something better available. So my question is: Do you know about some LCD that will be released in, lets say, 2-7 months that would be better then AOC AG271QG? Even if that would be light sensor (I’m gonna miss that :(). The area I’m afraid of is quality and durability of AOC. Especially considering premium price. That’s why I’m hesitating.

    Same as the response I gave in January I’m afraid – https://forum.pcmonitors.info/topic/aoc-ag271qg-vs-viewsonic-xg2703-gs/#post-41406

    It’s both good and bad at the same time. Bad because there are no better alternatives and current generation does not shine as much I’d like to. But then again it’s good because at least I can buy it and tell myself that I did everything I could to get best panel for the money I’ve got.
    Anyway thanks for your reply. 🙂

    Ok, so I finally bought AOC AGON AG271QG. I didn’t have much time to play with it but at the moment the only thing that I miss from my EIZO is light sensor that would adapt brightness to the ambient light. But overall I’m pleased right now. I have a little edge bleeding at the bottom left and right (it’s not IPS glow, I know how that looks like) but it’s invisible when there is anything then black.
    I had calibrator at my disposal (only Spyder5 Express) so I did change colors a little bit. I’d like to get my hands on something more pro but I don’t know anyone that would have it.
    I’m really surprised how much difference is with 165Hz. I’ve read that there will be but i didn’t expect that even in Windows I will feel this smoothness. 🙂

    Anyway thanks for your help!

    No problem and I hope you continue to enjoy your 165Hz IPS-style gaming smoothness. 🙂
