Does anyone have a 1440p, 144/165 Hz monitor?

I currently have 2x identical 25" 1440p monitors 60 Hz monitors.

 

I want to add a high refresh rate 1440p monitor between them.

 

I'm hoping for the heights of them all to be as similar as possible.

 

However, there are hardly any (if any) 25" 1440p high refresh rate monitors.

 

  • Does anyone have any of the following?
  • Acer XB241YU (24")
  • Acer XB271HUABMIPRZ (27")
  • Acer XF240YUBMIIDPRZX (24")
  • Acer XF270HUABMIIDPRZX (27")
  • Acer XG270HUOMIDPX (27")
  • AOC AG241QG (24")
  • AOC AG241QX (24")
  • AOC AG271QX (27")
  • Asus MG278Q (27")
  • Asus MG279Q (27")
  • Dell S2417DG (24")
  • Iiyama GB2760QSU-B1 (27")
  • Samsung C27HG70 (27")
  • Zowie XL2730 (27")
  • Zowie XL2735 (27")

 

If so, could you possibly measure the height of the screen in two ways, for me?

 

  1. The height including panel casing (but not including the stand etc.)
  2. Just the panel height itself (so should be a little shorter than the above)

 

This would be very much appreciated, as it's very hard to get heights online!

Highly unlikely. The easiest way to ensure they can be adjusted until they meet the OCD needs is with a monitor arm of some sort.

Wall-mounting :)

Are your wall mounts adjustable? Or can they be mounted where necessary?

Pick the screen you like most and fits your budget, have wall mounts... Beers?

but worried about heights matching up?  Do you have a tape measure and know how to read it? Got a Level and know what that bubble means?  Measure twice, mount once.

You don't understand. If I have a 27" in the center and 2x 25" on the left and right, even if all are 1440p, when moving windows etc. to the center monitor, the windows etc. will get larger due to the DPI. I want to avoid that.

Thats not the question at the top, but ok and GL. Hope you get it figured out.

That made it sound like you needed physical dimensions or something

I do need the physical dimensions.

A 24" will look slightly stupid but should have "similar enough" pixel density.

 

A 27" will have fatter pixels and you can maintain the same window size by scaling the two monitors on each side.

 

A 27" with 4K will give more pixels to work with so you can scale just the center monitor.

 

If you don't want to scale, you need identical panel size and resolution.

 

You could also consider orienting the 25" panels vertically and see if that matches some common size and res in the middle.
