Whether the broadcasters are going HD or not, TV sets and projectors are arriving thick and fast which claim to support higher resolutions than regular telly. But HDTV is far from just one standard – it incorporates a couple of different resolutions, two different scanning modes, and a number of different frame rates. In this article, we present a guide to what all the terms actually mean.

There’s a lot more to High Definition than just having the ability to run your screen at the right resolution. With more than one type of connection available, and the thorny subject of signal encryption to contend with, just because your monitor and graphics are capable of 1,920 x 1,080 or better does not necessarily mean they will be able to display HDTV in all its glory.

27" ASUS ROG Swift PG279QE Monitor, IPS, 2560x1440, 165Hz, 4ms, G-SYNC, 1000:1, 350cd/m², DisplayPort/HDMI/USB is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well worth shelling out for... Very quick delivery for a start. Easy to assemble, all cables and plugs included. Height, swivel and tilt all there. Screen is brilliant, in more ways than one! Easy to adjust screen settings. Get killed more often as there is so much screen area from my previous monitor! Worth the money? Most definitely.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding monitor! From the moment I switched it on, I was instantly blown away by how amazing the picture was. Coming from a 144Hz 1080p TN panel, the increase in resolution to 1440p and significantly better IPS colour accuracy was immediately apparent. The black levels and build quality are are also much better than on my old monitor. G-Sync is an huge upgrade too and having no tearing anymore is fantastic. I was initially worried that going from a 1ms to a 4ms response time would be an issue, but I honestly cannot tell the difference. Reports of black light bleed and IPS glow were a fear as well and there is indeed some light bleed in the bottom and top right corners. It's hardly noticeable however and the other pros of the monitor prevent me from caring. I've often heard that you shouldn't skimp on the monitor when building powerful gaming PCs and this is definitely correct. For too long have I bought cheaper monitors and have been settling for a lesser gaming experience. You get what you pay for and I can safely say this monitor was a good investment. Just a shame I now need a better graphics card to enjoy it to its full potential.
