Hi, thought this was a good price, some good personal reviews around. This is £450.16 @ Amazon.

Awesome lol

Sorry but would £350 on a 1080p monitor not be a little silly. I know gsync is supposed to help during gaming but I'd have though at that res there would be little problems.
If rather get an around good monitor like Dell p2415Q at 4k and great colour reproduction.

That's the G-Sync premium in effect.

Is a worth while premium or a tax on the gullible? For me it seems to be a link to the old saying, only a bad tradesman blames his tools.

Buying a 1920x1080 @ 144Hz monitor for £355 is **** crazy.
My opinion

At first I wondered why this was cold, as it has to be 1440p at this price which would have been reasonable. But no, 1080p!

I think G-Sync is a good idea, but until they can reduce the add-on price to far less, people won't want to pay £100 extra for the privilege.

FreeSync.

Freesync isn't as good as G-Sync, it only has a small Hz range and can't be used with NVIDIA cards.

Been looking for a deal on a 28" IPS 4k monitor for a couple weeks now but nothing has popped up

May just get the Samsung budget TN

But the range is sufficient for most gaming and it's Nvidia who have to decide to support it.

Top end is 90hz, so as time goes on, you'll exceed that with your card. It's a good TN panel, but IPS is the way to go.

What has 90Hz go to do with TN or IPS? G-Sync is limited by variable refresh rate technology inside the monitor. That's why the min/max are something like 45/90Hz. It is a 144Hz monitor though.

Was talking about freesync

I was under the impression both technologies are limited by the same display hardware (the variable refresh rate part).

As far as I know, gsync will go to 144hz.
