As someone with the same display as you....

"Nope!"

TN is completely awful, I was just at my office looking at a TN going "Dang, IPS is so much better".

You don't play a lot of FPS games right? That is what this monitor is aimed at. Those of us that do, will be quite happy to get our hands on this monitor.

I have a perfectly lovely 27" IPS Dell monitor that I use for work. Wouldn't dream of gaming with it though.

I personally prefer an 800$ monitor with no tweaking required than a 600$ monitor that constantly require tweaking and still has problems.

I also like the idea of G-sync and willing to give it a shot.

Eeessh, sounds like you aren't having a very pleasant experience. If I were in your shoes then I would consider the display this thread is about, or the Eizo FG2421.

TN panels really get a bad rap around here but not all TN panels are created equally. The SA27950D Samsung I had, for instance, was actually very good in terms of color accuracy and shift (or lack thereof) but of course IPS and PLS are still much better. That said, a good TN panel is not necessarily a deal breaker when your focus is on the fastest possible refresh rate and 120+Hz. I'd have a hard time paying $800 for any monitor with a TN panel however...

Well, it would depend, but don't forget:

60Hz non-strobed = baseline
120Hz non-strobed = 50% less motion blur than 60Hz
120Hz strobed = 80-95% less motion blur than 60Hz

There are people who happily switched from IPS to TN, to get better motion clarity. (Examples: LightBoost testimonials)

G-SYNC's ULMB works in surround mode.

The G-SYNC variable refresh rate function currently only works in non-surround on the center G-SYNC monitor (primary #1), but you can keep other monitors connected displaying desktop or cheat sheets.

If you want to do surround gaming with G-SYNC monitors, you can -- just only with regular VSYNC ON or VSYNC OFF, and you can easily use ULMB strobing in surround mode very easily (much more easily than LightBoost).

currently have PB278Q, love 1440p, and may now have a reason to upgrade to 780 ti SLI.

I played Counter Strike competitively for a very long time, now I occasionally play TF2 and CS, but nothing at the level or amount that I used to. As someone who has a lot of FPS experience, TN is garbage, even the best of them leave something to be desired.

So you use a CRT? There is no way you can get lower input lag or less ghosting on a 60hz IPS monitor compared to a 120 or 144hz TN panel monitor.

I think this whole thread turned into a TN vs the world. Can we all agree that TN is garbage for color and viewing angle? Right, and can we agree that all of the people here does not make their living out of playing an fps game? Right. Now can you understand why people would rather get a VA panel then a ****ty TN one? I could not care less about 120hz if I have to sacrifice viewing angle and color.

All I ever want is a nice IPS/PLS 120hz strobbing 2560*1440 monitor. I guess 8k monitors will be a thing before I get what I want.

Back in the day I used a CRT, then when that blew I ran with a TN panel. My CRT blew back when LCDs were a luxury and expensive. I used TN panels up until almost one year ago exactly, when I switched to what I have now.

My current IPS panel has a single input and runs 120Hz, I noticed no difference in input latency going from my previous TN (rated at 5ms) to my IPS.

EDIT: I have also seen the "gaming" monitors being offered by Asus and BenQ in person, and they are terrible for viewing. It is the reason I kept my previous 60Hz TN, instead of getting one of the 120/144Hz TN displays. The picture quality didn't justify the cost, even with 120+ Hz...

Then with a 120Hz capable IPS came to market, I jumped all over it.
