Hello i've been looking for weeks trying to find a 144hz 1ms monitor with a good picture quality. Whenever i look at reviews it just makes my decisions even harder.

There are 9 monitors on your list so it seems that you have already done a lot of work and are falling into the trap of becoming bogged-down into too much detail. There is no such thing as a perfect monitor and reviews will always find something that isn't perfect. I suggest you pick the monitor that comes closest to what it is you are after having satisfied yourself that you will be able to live with any shortcoming mentioned in a review. Chances are that you will not even notice what the reviewer was going on about unless you are a perfectionist yourself. Go for it.

I agree with wiganken2. Sometimes, the more you look at reviews, the harder it gets to make a decision. Any comments we make will be based on personal preferences, and they may not coincide with yours.

Perhaps it will help if you take a look at this.

P.S. I should have added that I imagine reviewers are paid for their reviews so, to justify their fee, they need to look hard at the product they are testing. They need to report on everything so some little niggle is bound to be found and commented on because no product is perfect. So take reviewers comments in-context and realise that you may not notice very small negatives that they find because they are the experts.
