I'm in the market for a G-sync monitor, I only have a EVGA 1070 SC so probably can't do 4k but this seems to be the same price as non-4k G-sync monitors.

Also available at Amazon for £411.48 :

144hz has ruined me. Tried to play on a 60hz monitor and it was like moving through treacle.

Does it do 1440 at 144 Hz as well?

Can you use this for like Xbox one gaming no?

Yes. The new Xbox will do 4k at 60hz but the ones previous can't, they can only do 1080p at 60hz. So no point spending all that money on this monitor unless you have the new Xbox.

HDR?

Here is a review from back when it cost a lot more...seems pretty good:

Get a Freesync monitor.

As for this it's a TN with native 4K @ 60Hz. At £400 it's a great price for a larger 28 inch Gsync enabled monitor, but overall it's kind of mediocre as a panel and has dubious quality control issues. Tough call really. Positives and negatives.

You can certainly set the resolution to 1440p if you want to, though it is native 2160p. And also only 60hz.

Freesync wont matter with the base XB1. As far as I'm aware, it's only the XB1X that will be getting VRR capabilities. And even then, you'll need a monitor that offers Freesync through HDMI, not just Displayport.

Why is this gaming monitor only 60hz ?!

You need the holy trinity of 4k/g-sync/144hz in an ideal world. IPS panel would also give good colours..

that's what all us PC gamers are waiting for! I'll settle for 1440@144 until there's enough horse power to do 4k @144

What's the point in paying the G-Sync tax for 60hz ? Makes no sense

should have 4k and HDR10 if you want to use Xbox One X

great monitor otherwise, but not suitable for XB1X imo

Asus PG278Q
Have one for the last 2 years now, paid a pretty penny but was worth it. Gaudy gamery lights can be turned off. FPS display feature on monitor is nice, button to switch refresh rate on demand is useful too.
My 980 ti is still doing a good job of driving this screen at 1440p. I usually target around 100 fps. G-sync works really well for more demanding titles that drop in to the 50s/60s the odd time. Even GTA maxxed + AA at 30-40 fps seems really smooth.

For this post. Good price for the monitor, considering the module for gsync is rather costly too. Good for those looking to play non fps games and other not so refresh rate dependant titles. especially at 4k, which would require some seriously beefy horses. Thanks OP

Because not all gamers want or need 144hz and prefer to push resolutions/image quality instead. We also dont have 4k/144hz displays yet so it's not even an option at 4k.

You'll still get a significant benefit from the 4k side, but yea, ideally you want to be looking at a TV. There's very little in the way of proper HDR monitors at the moment and the few we have are quite expensive.

So is this a good monitor for a gtx 1080ti?

Definitely a panel that's not for a console.
Been looking forward to.a g-sync 4k above 90Hz monitor to upgrade my 144hz 1080p.
No point in getting a 60hz monitor with g-sync since I only play fast paced games.
Great deal if you're into MMORPG, adventure games and have a 1070/1070Ti. Cuz lets be honest. It wouldn't be able to push above that mark.

If you change resolution to 1080p or 2k resolution - what refresh rates are possible?

Only 60Hz as that is all the panel is capable of.

TN & 28" @ 4K.... Ewwww.

That's when GSync really earns it's money, not with the higher fps

There is however a lingering problem with these models. I made a comment about this in the above post.

Considering the PB287Q costs £350 and is widely regarded as one of the best 4K TN monitors you can buy, this is worth it to remove frame pacing issues and VSync stutter below 60fps, which let's be honest a lot of modern AAA games with a 1080 Ti can run between 50 and 60 fps.

I used the old xbox one and an xbox 360 with PC gaming monitors over fantastic 55"-65" TVs. Input lag on these is minimal and even for console 60fps 1080p gaming... easily worth it.

Hi. Not saying you shouldn't but just seems a bit pointless spending that extra money on a monitor that an older Xbox won't be able to take advantage of. Why not use a cheaper monitor or TV, and save £100/£200ish? You could get 1ms on a cheaper monitor and save money.

1ms and best image quality is the goal, for a console limited to 60fps I wouldn't go for a cheap one if a more expensive one offered lower input lag or higher image quality.

I agree with you there. But I'm sure there's 1ms with great image quality for a cheaper price. And the older xboxs can only do 1080p. I've seen good quality monitors that are 1ms+1080p+60fps+ips monitors at a much lower price point. Just trying to get the best deal without losing out

oh yeah sure for an xbox one or anything like that go with 1080p 1ms, 60fps. For xbox one x maybe something like this... maybe something cheaper if it offers the same IQ and gaming performance.
