Actually its only a $80 difference. When the TE dropped it $419 on Amazon. I purchased it for this price then had amazon refund me some money when it was lowered.

True, the TE took a few months to come down out of the stratosphere.

I was hoping we were done with this nonsense of releasing for $100+ more than what it should be.

But for me, it's $200 more as I paid $300 or my TE and that's the credit I'll get back when I return.

Hopefully it will lower to $400 or less on release.

Still, I'm in a tough spot as I really want Gsync and that's a few months away. I would not be able to play BF4 for that time however and that's simply not an option.

You think the gsync will be worth it? Im looking at getting the 27" the next time around. May get it in March or April.

Should be getting this monitor tomorrow. I have high hopes for this monitor, will be going from a Samsung 2233RZ to this beauty thumb.gif. My 2233RZ has served me well and got me hooked on high refresh rates but I think this BenQ will be an overall upgrade in color quality, input lag, motion blur refresh rate and general build quality. Also that headphone hook is sweeeet biggrin.gif.

I got this monitor about 6 weeks ago. I was immediately shocked by how bad the colors were. I have a Sager NP9170, with a TN 60 hz screen that seriously ****s on this monitor. The colors are so much more vibrant and the resolution looks much better. My background has dark purple colors and the BenQ can't even begin to replicate them. It looks like giant squares of light **** purple and meanwhile the laptop screen replicates the picture perfectly. You can't even tell what the background is on the BenQ. In game, dark colors are so obviously pixelated it angers me. What is black on my laptop is dark grey seperated of shades to light grey. Like totally apparent blocks of shades it looks so bad, meanwhile the laptop is a nice faded color. I asked BenQ and they said it's cause its a TN monitor. I asked XoticPC.com, where I got my laptop why theyre so different and what kind of panel my laptop had and they told me its TN. While it may be one of the best TN panels you can get for a laptop, it should not be that much different from BenQ's high end monitor. I used Dual DVI and Displayport, no difference. This thing is going back to amazon. Has anyone else experienced this kind of problem with BenQ, and TN monitors in general? I didn't want to spend the extra big bucks to get a S-IPS but it looks like I may have to. I want high refresh rates but I cannot sacrifice the incredibly **** colors for it. Anyones thoughts are appreciated and if someone could recommend other monitors that would be awesome!

Nope, but ASUS claims it's an IPS-e like TN panel in their marketing talk, the panel they've used is a new development according to them. An OCN member that has seen this monitor stated that it is very good for a TN panel.

But IRL it probably isn't as good as a quality IPS panel (color accuracy).
