          I bought a Korean 1440p monitor about 5 years ago that I've had overclocked to 110Hz the whole time. Cost me about $300USD.

          Korean monitor club thread is still active: http://www.overclock.net/forum/44-monitors-displays/1384767-...

          @TenaciousTom: The Korean monitor is what I'm currently using, its a Crossover brand but it isn't overclock able.

          I bought mine 6yrs ago and is still going strong. Surprised to see how much more they cost now compared to back then due to gain in popularity.

        •  

          @TenaciousTom:

          How do you overclock ur monitor??!

        •  

          @TenaciousTom: I think the colour gamut is supposed to be fairly poor on korean cheap monitors although they look good for what they display.

        •  

          @ywaa1124: Increase the refresh rate until it stops displaying frames properly.

    Any deals on ASUS ROG Swift PG279Q ?

      Not the same. You linked to TN panel version, this is for IPS

      •  

        Fair call, my search returned the A at the end. My Apologise

      •  

        this is for IPS Sparta!

        Fixed.

    Always do your research before jumping on the Ebay 20% off deals. At best this would be 20 cent shipping.

    While I agree with the posters above, this exact same offer (from Futu eBay) did hit the front page with 90 votes only 1 month ago: https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/360550

    patiently waiting for HDR monitors

    I bought one of these for $850 last week. Comes with HDMI and Displayport cables but only the 'full' variants - my graphics card only has Mini-DP and the DP-to-miniDP adapters I tried gave me a lot of headaches. An end to end DP/miniDP cable solved all my problems. Save yourself some trouble and check beforehand to see if you'll need a separate cable.

    Fantastic monitor though, my old 970 can't handle 1440p 165hz in most games but gsync is a real game changer.

    •  

      Where was it for $850? Im looking to buy this monitor but not game enough to buy it from over east (im in WA). In case for warranty issues.

      •  

        It was at MSY, I thought that was their regular price but they're at $889 right now.

    This is the best all round featured monitor you can get at the moment until 4K/HDR/G-Sync/144hz ones come out (Although they'll probably be ~$1500). I've had this monitor for a year and a half now and it's truly amazing. G-Sync and High refresh rate make it so that you never have to worry about stutter and tearing ever again. IPS colours are beautiful and 1440p strikes a perfect balance between higher fidelity and still having a PC that can run it. I've seen 4K monitors and honestly it's hard to see the difference. However, 1440p vs 1080p I can spot straight away.

    If you're picky about your monitors, avoid predator XB and ASUS ROG monitors until further notice. They have issues with QC: backlight bleed, ghosting, artifacting, flickering, glow, screen tearing at 60+fps, and of course dead pixels, are some of the common issues with this monitor.

    I work at a computer retailer we have about 5% return rate for just one SKU of these monitors. (2% is considered high). We had 7 predator monitors in warranty just last week.

    •  

      Sadly this is the reason I settled for a TN version of this monitor

  •  

    They must make a lot of profit on this as the Sony 4K 49” is similar in price.

  •  

    does anyone know the differences between Acer Predator XB271HUA and Acer XB271HU? which would be better for gaming?

    •  

      Hua TN panel and Hu is an IPS panel - do your own research to see what you would prefer but essentially TN will always be a bit faster but it's colours are not going to be as rich/consistent as an IPS display.
      That said IPS have their own shortcomings - slightly greater delay, and backlight bleed can be a problem

      Ultimately it's personal preference

    Ugh I want it so bad, but I just can't justify the price. Can anyone recommend a similar spec'd monitor for cheaper? Needs to be 1440p, 27", 100Hz+ and at least 5ms response time. I can do with either TN or IPS, and G-Sync isn't a necessity

    • +1 vote

      That's exactly what I'm after too and I can't anything that fits the bill either!

      Think I'm going to just end up with the cheapy Viewsonic VA2719-2k and pray it can o/c to 80hz and call it a day :/

      •  

        Looks decent!

        • +1 vote

          Yeah it's great for the price, 3 year local warranty, but it's no 100hz+ and it doesn't have amazing IO options.

          Another option is the Korean Crossover 27VV off Amazon.com.au for $399, older design monitor but 75hz out of the box.

          I'm totally stumped on what to pull the trigger on :(

        •  

          @tellhimhesdreaming: Yeah I've been really interested in the Korean monitors, but they are such a pain to get to Oz

          EDIT: Just realized you mentioned Amazon.com.au, not the US site… very interesting indeed…

          @cNelson144:

          If it's of any interest here is my forum post with the monitors I am still deciding between: https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/366209

          The other curveball I've since added is the Lenovo P27H on ebay with 20% off for about $424 delivered. Has USB-C and a stand and all that goodness too, but sadly still only 60hz.

      I found this today, the price seems unreal but you can have a look

        Looks amazing and I was about to buy.. but pretty sure that's US prices?

        Edit: it is US and doesn't ship to Oz. $990 in AU

          yea sorry about that, I nearly brought it as well =(

          I heard there are logistic companies which can receive the item and send to Australia as well. I am guessing if we do that, the total cost maybe around 650 Aud which is still good. But I am not too sure about the world's warranty in Australia, as well as which delivery companies to choose from.

          All these efforts might as well get it in Aus hahah
