good price, bought for £500 in December from Amazon.

The hot/cold system is flawed, people just vote cold because they think it's too much money for a monitor or can't afford it.

Hot IMO

Yep you're right, they probably don't know what Gsync is

You can buy a good 4k monitor for this price. 4k gaming takes a massive dump on 1440p if you have a 980ti or equivalent. Plus porn looks better too.

Good luck getting 60fps at 4k on current gen graphics cards

Myth. You can get 60fps on many games or in the 50s.

Yeah by setting everything to low/medium

I'd much rather play games on 2560x1440p, this is the excellent sweetspot for gaming.

Got this monitor and a GTX 980 TI and this is the ultimate combination high FPS and great resolution.

1440p 144hz gaming takes a massive dump on 30-50fps on a standard 4K monitor.

Your looking at £300 more for a equivalent 4K monitor.

Actually picked one of these up from NRG IT already (bought on sat), it's here. Brand new stock, delivered via DPD and if it ever goes wrong I know NRG IT will collect next day.

Good monitor, essentially the same panel as the ASUS/ACER equivalent but a bit cheaper. Better than the others due to the slim design and better stand.

Many people would prefer 144hz @ 1440p over 4k/60

Voted cold on this. I know it's roughly £30 cheaper than normal price but take a look at the other deals that we've had for this particular monitor over the last few months (£99.87, £260.82, £344.82). Given the issues that this monitor has with pixel inversion I don't think I'd pick one up for more than £300. Even at that price point I'd feel like I was getting robbed, considering the much better deals we've seen on this. I'm willing to bet this monitor will be sub £400 everywhere later this year.

Here's the CCC chart for this monitor:

If you're in the market for this monitor, check Amazon DE,FR,IT,ES daily. Deals on this (and the PG278q, XB270HU, etc) are seen quite frequently. That's providing you can dig out an adapter for the EU plug.

The logic of some people lol voting cold because it's been cheaper before and you can get it cheaper if you wait and put effort in looking around several international Amazon sites.... Using your logic every deal in this site would be voted cold

Each to their own matey. 4K is considerably better than 1440p, i've made the mistake of listening to certain geeks on here before harp on about great these sort of monitors are. Anything above 60hz is negligible to me, combine 4K and 60hz and it's spectacular.

The only reason to ever buy one of these is if you're into first person shooters, that's where the difference lies, and then it takes a real pedantic person to start noticing 'major' differences.

Difference between 60hz and 144hz is night and day. At the end of the day it's just a preference.

"lol" - No I just don't think it's a decent deal. £30 quid off on this monitor isn't a deal. Of course using this logic things would be voted cold, because they should be. It's not a good deal. I've been in the market for a 144Hz, G-Sync, 2560x1440 (preferably IPS) monitor for a few months. In that time I've seen this monitor go for considerably cheaper. You don't need to get upset because your posting got voted cold with all that "the logic of some people" childishness.

There's tons of YouTube videos and discussions on forums that this monitor has pixel inversion/walk issues. It's not worth the RRP and it's not worth £30 off, hence why I voted cold. It'd be worth a look at <=£300 in my opinion.

Gsync monitors at 1440p will never go less that £300 (only if it's a miss price). And yes they have gone considerably cheaper... BUT ONLY BECAUSE IT WAS A MISS PRICE! It's like saying an Xbox One went for £100 at Asda when scanned at the till and so every deal after that is cold because likely hood is it won't get a miss price again.

Im not bother you voted cold, it's just you reasoning I find laughable. May not be a mega deal since it's only £30 cheaper but it's still a deal.

How is it laughable? To spend two minutes checking Amazon EU deals to potentially save a hundred quid. Look at the CamelCamelCamel chart I posted. This monitor was selling for ~£340 on the UK site for MONTHS. Right now the price is back up and you're saving £30 on the recently inflated price. It wasn't a misprice it was just cheaper, to the tune of about £80 than this "deal" is. My "laughable" reasoning must have been shared by everyone else considering this is currently sitting at -50.

The only reason I posted a reply to this was to hopefully save someone some money by letting them know that this monitor is frequently much cheaper than the price you've advertised here. Furthermore if they check the EU sites, which takes all of two minutes, within a week or two you'll find a much better price.

It not just this monitor, its all of the 1440p panels by AUO. There is a couple of variants but they all do the same thing.

In general you never notice it, you will need to wait a year or 2 for a different panel to appear on the market.

Yep, I've seen people complaining about the pg278q having the same issue. From what people have said about the PG279Q, XB270HU and XB271HU (all IPS) you don't get this issue. I think it's just an issue that affects TN panels. I'll probably end up picking up a PG279Q when it hits around £600. I'm just not looking forward to the BLB lottery. All it takes is one company to build a decent panel to assuage fears around multiple RMAs and these things will fly off the shelves.

Either way, my point still stands that this has been much cheaper before for several months. Just a recent price hike has taken it back up towards where it was before. This was available for <£400 for a long time. I've seen this frequently at ~€400 through various Amazon sellers across europe, you just have to keep an eye open.

You'll have to pay import duty though on stuff outside the UK, won't you? If so, that would make most costs the same as the UK?

Not if its from within the EU. Which to be honest is an issue of being in the EU.

Delivery is normally just as quick in my experience.

Absolutely. I take no issue in people preferring image quality over frame rate. Currently I just think 4k takes too much horsepower to achieve 60fps. I have a 980ti and looking at something like the division you would need to be capping at 30fps for a "smooth" experience. Even with G-sync flucuations between 30 and 40fps look pretty gross IMO.

Dell. 27" 1440p. Gsync. For £419? Seems like a good price to me.

Totally different kettle of fish to 4k. Especially for the hardcore FPS crowd. Haven't done any research on this particular monitor but both my current two are Dell and they have both served me well.

Would love to have scooped a £99 miss-price one! That would have been a big old pile of win!
