27" IPS Monitor sub $300 range


What's a good brand monitor for photo editing. I don't want to do any external color calibration, it's not for pro use.

Anything similiar to the retina/glossy finish of the apple monitors?

Would these be pretty normal?

Acer G276HLDbd Black 27" 6ms

ASUS VG27AH Black 27" 5ms (GTG) HDMI Widescreen 3D IPS

I'm coming from a 24" dell that came with the pc. It's okay but I want something with a glossy panel and not matte look.  It's an older model without LED backlight so blacks are not so great.

No preference for a particular brand, as long as it has the eye popping/tack sharp/ultra blacks look to it. Maybe asking too much for under $300?

I don't recall my video card but it's 512MB nvidia with dual DVI. Should be able to do higher resolution than 1920 I think.
