Massive pixel pitch has widely become the norm since LCD took over and everyone just got used to it and forgot what a fine pitch looks like. I'm glad that 2560X1440 is becoming more common at 27".
It's all a bit moot, if you want anything above 1080p with high refresh rates it's the Catleaps or bust. Truth is we are stuck with 1080p @ 120Hz+ for sometime to come. Monitor evolution is very slow over the last few years and apart from 3D Vision that brought us higher refresh rates to 2D not much has really changed.
2560x1440/1600 is fine for creative design work (AutoCad, 3DMark etc), but for gaming 1080p with high refresh rates is all you need. I'm not even sure why the debate of IPS vs TN even came into this thread. We all know the Asus model is a TN from the get go...but people sure like arguing over the details.....
Just wish someone would buy one already or a review was done.
