Acer ED273A if not mistaken is 144hz 4ms VA panel, while BenQ one is 144hz 1ms TN panel. For me I'd go for Acer's since VA should produce better colour than TN's

Owner of ED273A here.

First time having 144hz monitors so it feels really nice for me to transit from 60hz to 144hz. 144hz display port, hdmi only 120hz.

Compare to IPS (I have used Dell IPS for straight 5 years, best monitor brand ever..) , VA is still abit behind but I guess it's better than TN based on a lot of reviews? I stayed away from TN panel.

I was going to get the samsung cfg70 but I heard a lots of problems like purple trail and overshooting so I hold off until this ED273A came out.

The stand is REALLY REALLY sturdy to my surprise so no worries on wobbling.

I haven't used 1ms panel before so I couldn't comment on the 4ms GTG stuff but it feels alright so far.

I guess it takes some time for me to get used to 27 monitor because it feels kinda big right now. I need to adjust the distance.

Again, its 1080p on 27inch so if you're really picky on the sharpness/ dpi, check out a demo unit first.
