Picked up one of these a week ago from amazon warehouse for £228.67. Was shocked when I saw the price but very happy.

Also picked up a Gigabyte Geforce 980ti G1 today for £214.38... just need a second one at this price now.

Be warned some of these will probably be panels that have been returned for bleeding, fading or dead pixels.

Didn't see anything wrong with mine at all. In fact it still had stickers on it as if it was brand new. I admit the box looked like it had been opened but it didn't look like the monitor had ever been touched.

Thanks OP, that's my new monitor. Will be listing my 24" AOC 144hz monitor on here when it arrives.

I've ordered one but I really don't know if I should keep it or cancel

I currently have a 1080p 144hz acer xb270h, anybody have any first hand experience on the upgrade from 1080p > 1440, and is gsync really worth it? There's nothing wrong with my monitor so I'm struggling to figure out if its worth the upgrade.

I went from 23 inch with a 1156 vertical resolution and for me, the resolution jump and the screen size boost are well worth it. The bezel on this screen is tiny so that's also a bonus.
The sugar on top for me was G-Sync and 3D Vision. I do have to wait for my 980ti to arrive but like I say, those last two were sugar on top.

Almost forgot to mention the 144hz feature too. Seriously good value for money.

Thought this was the ips version for a moment :(

**** sake man I'm so jelly.
I paid £515 for this monitor last year and £525 for my 980Ti too.
If I saw another Ti for that price you got it, I'd probably go SLI.

It also depends on the size of the screen. A 24" 1080p screen won't look dramatically different than a 27" 1440p screen but it will look better on the latter still.
To best describe going from a 23" 1080p to a 27" 1440p I'd say that games just looks crisper and you can see more finer detail. I think 1440p is a great 'sweet spot' between ultra high resolutions and what is slowly becoming low resolutions (1080p and below).

As for G-Sync, it is totally worth it. It's essentially like playing in borderless full-screen but without the microstutter you can get. It can also make some games running at around 45 FPS respond similarly to around 60 FPS. AC Syndicate is one of them I noticed felt really responsive at 45 FPS in G-Sync.
I can't recall the technical details as to why, but at around 45 FPS, G-Sync shines.

Can someone give me a student discount code? What's the site I apply for again lol

Me too. There was the predator ips 165hz version for £350( before student discount) the other day but there was only one and I missed it :(

I don't want to go back to TN panels.

£300 for a used one of these, whilst sounds good compared to the rrp, is still overpriced in my opinion.

Nice find, I have been looking on there but for a 27" 1080p 144hz screen. Not ready for 1440p yet.

I was looking for one for ages ended up getting PG348Q, its great but overkill for what i needed (great for panzer corps!! lol). I wouldn't touch a TN panel after having ips on my previous ones.
I did try a VA panel though and that would have been great if ghosting wasn't an issue (acer Z35)
#15
The TN bit doesn't bother me at all. Yes the viewing angles aren't the best, but at the end of the day it's not a tv. it's generally me or me and one other sitting straight in front of the screen. I dont need be able to see the picture from the side.

The only problem I've found is trying to find graphics cards that can power the latest games in ultra settings at 1440p @144hz.... generally speaking even the latest cards with SLI cant do that.

I don't see any at £366, all gone?

All gone, last one is "like new" 377, which is still a steal.

I've been keeping a really close eye on the 'graphics cards' section of the warehouse for a 980ti deal like a few people have got but keep missing them evidently! What's the secret?

If you've got a 980Ti or 1070 then it's good. G-sync is worth having for the elimination of lag, particularly at the lower frame rates of the supported range. If your card is weaker than those you're not going to be able to get anywhere near 144 fps most of the time on new games but the G-sync will be beneficial.
#20
had the dell TN, not as bad as you think. I have the pg348q as well, this is what you should go for if you're not prepared to pay nearly 3 times as much to go ultrawide.

I think I may stick with it then, thank you. I have a 1070 and at 1440p even that isn't going to push anywhere near 144 frames for the majority of games!

Yeah, it's a bit of a trade off on the very latest stuff, but you can lock to a lower level remember. It doesn't have to be 144hz. G-sync will also help at these lower rates too.

I've dropped my screen (not this one though) back to 120hz and even 90hz for some games. It's still much better than 60hz, the improvement is still fairly vast.

'this is an insane deal.' £366 with no warranty on a returned monitor from a manufacturer with serious panel quality issues?? YES, you'd be insane to buy it.

I wouldn't beat yourself up about it. Even at £300 with the student discount that is a fair bit of money for a used TN panel, regardless of how many Nvidia marketing gimmicks it may have.

very easy to return within thirty days if unhappy, plus would I not be right in saying Amazon warehouse offer a years warranty?

I had it in my basket and let it expire. At the end of the day, whatever tech costs, you always get better tech or price if you wait.

Unfortunately, reason is fighting against:
- a sense of loss of a bargain (if I get it NOW, it might only drop to this price 2nd-hand in 1 year's time...BIG WIN)
- the emptiness of an unfulfilled material want (new shiny is so seductive)
- the intrigue of exploring new tech (how good does my massive steam library look with G-Sync? Although I won't actually play ANY of the games; only tune and benchmark each one and condemn them back to the unplayed list)

Doesn't HDMI max out at 60fps making this overkill? Much cheaper options if so.

Tick. Tick. Tick. Can I add spending more time reviewing and comparing the tech than actually using it oO

Dude did yours have any problems, I have a dead pixel on mine, it said it would just have box damage unfortunately not. However this screen is **** amazing.

Did anyone ever have a problem with their panels?
