Seems to be the cheapest around for brand new.

I agree this might not be for everyone and you have to be in the specific market for a gysnc monitor but it's not everyday you can pick up a 27" 1440p 144hz+ gysnc monitor for sub £500

And your 4k TV still won't be as good as the monitor. As input lag would still be around 20ms or more, where as the monitor is prob between 1ms and 5ms. Plus the monitor has 144hz for super smooth gaming as well as g-sync. G-sync is a bit over priced but I would rather spend my 500 on the minitor

Shame it's TN and not OLED.

Too much for a TN panel imo. The G-sync tax is rough.
Yea this is not a good price. Colder than Jon Snows heart.
What I will say about Dell is that their customer and tech service sucks. I recently bought an LG ultra-wide 1440p, and although it's always nice to get a shiny new piece of tech, the fact is I would not of bothered as the Dell was doing fine until it developed a line of dead pixels down one side of the screen. I contacted Dell repeatedly by both phone and email and was told that I could not have my (6 year old) Dell IPS ultrasharp monitor screen repaired because Dell "did not offer repairs" - it sounds crazy and I swear they just wanted me to drop another £600 on a new Dell screen, but they refused to repair it.

Their loss anyway because I went with LG who assured me that however old their panels they would offer repairs in or out of warranty.
Good screen. But expensive.

You can't get oled in a monitor of this type.

And this is actually a good deal. 500 for 27" 1440p 144hz gsync is good for 500. Go find cheaper.

@rr9054 clearly you don't understand this product and are not a PC gamer

I understand this might be expensive for some but if you look at other gysnc panels you will be hard pressed to find them lower , this is supposed to be one of the best TN gysnc 1440p 144hz monitors around for the price. In comparison to the Asus and Acer ones which tend to be more expensive.

Personally not willing to pay extra £100+ for IPS and have to play IPS glow/bleed lottery

I was in this exact position a few months ago and decided to try the Acer Pred IPS (1440p, 165Hz, Gsync - XB271HU). I've read all the reviews on Amazon for this and the Asus variant too and was aware of the issues (especially with the Asus).

Pleased to say I ordered with Amazon so I could return if there was an issue but my panel came with no backlight bleed, all pixels were working and the monitor is an absolute dream to game on. All for £100 more than this, was £599 at time of purchase. Don't write the Acer off as in my experience it was the correct choice for me. I suppose I was a lucky one in the panel lottery.

As we all know it's down to personal preference and budget though.

I must admit I was tempted by that monitor but always had a TN and only use my PC for gaming and file management so not really that fussed about IPS. I personally wasn't a fan of the stand and after measuring realised it wouldn't actually fit my raised platform I have on my desk so had to rule out the Acer one , leaving me with this or the Asus , chose this as prefer the styling & much cheaper

All about preference with these though

great monitor, although I have no idea why the prices have shot up so much, I bought this model for 280 about 14 months ago, advertised on here.

would love to get a 2nd, but sadly not at this price
Can't believe how expensive these still are.

I got a brand new A03 version from a reseller on eBay 8 months ago for £300.

I'd keep an eye one eBay. They spring up on occasion brand new and sealed from some sellers.
Isn't hdmi 2.1 coming out soon, which is meant to stop input lag completely?

I know the xbox one x will be 2.1.

Hopefully the next range of gpu will also.

But how much would LG charge to repair a broken monitor and would it be wise to spend a lot of money on a 6 year old one?
It makes sense ecologically maybe but probably not financially.
