    Evening guys,

    I'm looking for good quality IPS screen.

    I recently purchased this one: http://www.ebuyer.com/497322-aoc-i2769vm-27-ips-vga-hdmi-monitor-i2769vm

    But it turned out, it had filter that was like a sticker on the front of it. It does make the screen misty and the colours are so off compared to an iMac.

    I need to find the right one, as we've just invested in a mac pro for our Graphic Designer and Ebuyer, being awkward about returning the item.

    So can anyone recommend an good quality IPS colours need to be right, of course - any recommendations would be super! Im not too fussed about the budget we paid £210 for this one so don't mind.

    Are you sure that the screen wasn't covered with a protective film for shipping and handling which was intended to be removed before use? I have never seen a monitor with a sticker filter attached to it, but I certainly haven't seen every monitor for sale. :D

    There is nothing in the specs you linked to that would indicate any kind of glare filter was included.

    That sticker pretty well confirms that it is most likely a shipping protection film, not to be removed before sale. It also keeps fingerprints off the screens of demo display units. Anti-glare filters are integrated into the screens, not sitting on the surface like removable transparent stickers. Also, I don't think the manufacturer would expect the monitor to be used with a warning sticker like that permanently affixed to it.

    Try peeling back a corner of the film slightly to see what's underneath it.

    Agree with the others.
    I still think you should return the monitor, though, unless you have some requirement for 1920x1080 resolution, which is rather (or extremely) low for a 27".

    The newer Dell UltraSharps are fantastic. U2515H and U2715H in 25" and 27", respectively. 2560x1440, 99% sRGB, IPS, 350 cd/m2, and they look great!

    Sorry maybe I wasn't clear - if i peel it away, the screen goes white and nothing can't be seen.. So it's some kind of filter stuck on.

    I need something that matches the iMac 2014 27" in terms of colours etc. We are a graphic design agency, so need something that is bright and colours.

    Combining a high end MacPro and a low end monitor seems like a mismatch. Maybe an iMac Retina 5k would have been a better solution for the graphics designer, at a lower price.

    The Dell 2412m is always what I recommend until people are willing to spend big money.

    hi, what do you want from the display?

    you mention buying a macpro for a graphic designer and you mention an imac display, are you using a screen calibrator to match displays?

    NEC and Ezio and some dells are what most people look at for color work.

    this site has some good reviews, says if a display is 8bit or not and grades calibration performance/color space covered.

    (sounds like a protective film, not shore about the white under the film maybe the display was defective?)

    ps the dell 2412m review http://www.tftcentral.co.uk/reviews/dell_u2412m.htm
    on a budget BenQ is worth a look, apple uses a lot of Samsung displays so there worth a look to.
