Best PC monitors for each user

When it comes to monitors, reliability can be hard to judge.  Panels can have good batches and bad ones.  Certain makers have a pretty good track record of reliability and if you do happen to get a bad panel the warranties are usually long enough to get you through it.

PC users pretty much come in two major user groups: performance users and production users.  The performance user would covers the gamer, and anyone who requires a graphics card.  The production user covers anyone who uses the PC to look at digital stuff be it on the internet or on a hard drive. I will give a brief overview of the requirements of both and the XcerptShow Top Pick of each.

Performance User

A performance user will need a very low response time(ms), a high refresh rate(Hz) and some built in syncing software couldnt hurt(G-SYNC[Not to be confused with 1990s boy band NSYNC]).  G-SYNC is software that tracks what the GPU is putting out and the monitor is displaying to enhance fidelity in quickly moving application like games.  Software like this can really help with eye strain while gaming for extended periods.  It helps reduce or eliminate headaches.

G-SYNC is supported on hit games like Rainbow Six: Siege

ASUS PG278QR 27" $680
It is a 27in monitor(no need to buy 2 which despite its hefty price could actually save you money) with a 1ms response time, G-Sync and refresh rate of up to 165Hz.  This is the XcerptShow Top Pick for obvious reasons. 

Production User

A production user is similarly looking for the performance specs of performance users, but there is a balance between price and performance.  The most important aspect is reliability from a well reviewed model.   
ASUS VE248H 24" $145
This is a 24in monitor with a 2ms response time, and a high contrast ratio for excellent video and word processing viewing.  The price and almost 2800 reviews with an average of 4.5 stars on Amazon make this the XcerptShow Top Pick.
