Why are these monitors so expensive?

It has Gsync and thereby attracts the Nvidia monoploy tax........

Because they are 144hz/165hz and have nvidia gsync (that adds £100-150 usually).
They give you a significantly smoother gaming experience basically.

They haven't sold that for a couple of years now. Was only for the ASUS VG248Q monitor I think.

Good price for a 165hz - the Acer has less bezel compared to the (same panel) Asus.

Sadly though (other than on a couple of DX12 titles) lacking in grunt are AMD. Nothing to compete with the 1070+. Wish they did, as that might knock Nvidia's pricing down a bit.
Gaming at a decent 'ultra' 1440p/144hz, 4K/60hz and you have to be pretty much tied to Nvidia.
1080p though, the 8gb AMD cards are much better bang for the buck than the GTX 1060 in the long run (driver optimisations etc).

+1

Not only would the Gsync monitors come down in price, the Nvidia graphics cards might drop a bit too.

If this is the 2k, 165hz, IPS one it's a cracking price. Paid £600 for fine 4 months ago and love it.

It's the TN panel, not IPS, although you can occasionally pick up the IPS version (Acer and Asus) for sub-£500 on Amazon Warehouse. Although a bit of a gamble if it's just in a damged box (and not a bad panel) you can still send em back within 30 days.

Mine copped me £480 (IPS) incl. delivery, was brand new and luckily had no backlight bleed (small amount of IPS glow though - no way round it unfortunatley with IPS panels).

I was going to get the Asus 27" version but read loads of bad reviews about the back light bleed on them so went for the Acer version even tho the same panel had less reports of bleed but I'm happy with mine but was a lot of money but goes well with my 1070.

The £350 sold on amazon yesterday was by a seller named Contact me before buying in jumbled up letters, so it was never a real price sadly, otherwise I would of been tempted.

Wow I need to brush up on buying from Amazon and marketplace sellers. I once helped a company get started on Amazon. They wanted to know everything from where the product would be sourced, import invoices and taxes. That was a long time ago, I guess they don't bother anymore.

Sadly at the moment the current scam seems to be create a shop which sells high ticket items at significant price drops, they ask the buyer to contact them before purchasing. They make a spiel about its new/ incoming stock which amazon won't let them sell direct and ask you to give them your details, They send a email appearing from amazon which tries to phish your details and get you to pay through them, since it is not done on amazon systems the buyer has no guarantee and if often left out of pocket. They pop up and get shut down quick enough, but they probably still catch a few people here and there.
