This is quite a specialist monitor, which probably won't get hot or anything... but for the people who know about it and have been waiting a long time for it, this is the cheapest place I have found it. Free delivery.

You can read all about it at http://www.tftcentral.co.uk/reviews/asus_rog_swift_pg278q.htm - yes it's TN, yes it's expensive and locked to nvidia hardware... but it's still without question the best gaming monitor you can buy, period.

2% cashback at quidco, saving you an additional £13.

"but it's still without question the best gaming monitor you can buy, period"

really?

Well, name me another screen that offers a 1440p 144hz screen, g-sync, 1ms lag, a tiny bezel and flicker-free ULMB. But hey, don't take my word for it:

If it's not the best, it's certainly up there. I personally don't know anything that can currently compete with it for gaming.

well until more of the g-sync monitors are released and have had user feed back(not just a handful of review sites) then you can't make such claims.

I will never understand paying that amount of money for such a tiny screen

What? So basically your argument consists of "a better monitor may or may not be made at any time in the future" right? What a silly thing to say LOL.

According to Hexus, it's the best gaming monitor you can buy right now. Not a year or two in the future. Right now. I have no doubt that superior monitors will eventually be released, but that is like refusing to watch a film because eventually, a better film might be released. Crazy talk.

27" is pretty big for a monitor, anything above 30" on a desk is enormous.

Just a shame they had to use a TN panel for responsiveness.
#7
for those fighting. I'll name a better monitor how about the Acer 4k Gsync at overclockers for 499? 1ms 28"also.

guess I win that round lol

60hz max + 4k on 28" is just too small.

Cold, still a 8bit panel.

Please show me where I mentioned anything about years in the future? You'll argue the toss but I don't find that claiming something the best when it's the only one of it kind or one of a handful, as I said in my previous reply until more such monitors are released I hold no value in any review claiming this the 'best thing since sliced bread'.

The reason why this monitor has grabed my attention, and i search the internet day in day out to find it hopefully cheap is because of its resolution and the rest of its features. I do own an asus 144hz screen, and i am ready for a higher resolution but not UHD, that means that i also have to spend another 250 pounds for sli. So acer UHD £499+£250 for another gtx770 £750. Asus rog swift 599. When it reaches 400 i m ready for it.
