This is how i feel, but im patient, im gonna wait until these become easily available in brick and mortar stores, namely microcenter and go get one along with 2 gtx 970 g1s. Either asus is having supply issues, or as someone else noted earlier with amazon possibly selling them via warehouse deals above MSRP

The Frys by me may of just had it in stock that week. It's not on their website though. If it helps, the upc is
886227752478. I think this is the frys sku: 8237286.

I believe the keyword he used when searching was Gsync.

Best of luck.

Yes they do. They just don't know that they do - totally serious.

The PLU for the ROG Swift in Frys' database is #8237286. It won't show up on the website. Only in their system. Ask one of the reps using that PLU.

Hang in there guys... trust me. I know that availability is a real pain in the a** right now, but believe me, it's totally worth it. I am literally blown away with how good this monitor is, especially if you have the proper hardware to run it. You'll just have to see it for yourself. 60hz looks like a slideshow now to me. It really is THAT good.

My nowinstock alert went off at 12:19 AM PST and it was a good hour later when i checked and posted that it was in stock so there was about a good hour or two window that it was available before getting sold out again.

Like I said a couple of threads back the girl at Newegg said she showed 105 of them at there warehouse in City of Industry. What I found Newegg likes to post maybe 10 available then 10 the next day so on keeps people shopping there rather than let them sell out one day then have to wait 1 month for another batch..

Anyone here with eyes older than 40 smile.gif

I am wondering how small the text is at 2560X1440 on a 27"

How well does Win 8.1 scaling work?
post #1907 of 6160
That alert that went off earlier in the AM appeared to be open box units for sale to me. I already purchased mine back on Friday, but I had an alert this morning. When I checked it, it took me to the open box page and they were all sold already. Not sure what was up with that.

I have Windows 7 and a Swift, @46 I have no problem seeing and reading anything with this monitor.
post #1909 of 6160
I am very interested in getting this monitor, but having some doubts considering the very high price it retails for.

How would you describe g-sync? I have had several 120hz monitors and I am very sensitive to any input lag/delays etc, so g-sync sounds perfect for me if it actually does work as advertised.
How is it to use in badly coded games (say assassins creed etc)?
Is it worth stepping up from a 120hz Korean monitor?
Also read on the first pages of this thread that there is some SLI issues, are they fixed?

I simply cannot recommend this monitor enough. Obviously, experiences vary but I have had 2 and they were/are both great (sold one due to lack of working displayports in SLI). G-sync seems to really smooth over the frame rate drops in games. I went back and played some AC4 right after I got it and could tell a huge difference from my previous 144Hz panel. The game was perfectly smooth and if I dont run fraps I cannot tell my frame rate drops unless it get below about 45. I cannot notice any input lag. I have my qnix as my secondary and it feels like I am trying to move the mouse thru jello on that monitor compared to the swift. I have had no issues with SLI other than the occasional micro stutter that is all to common in any multiple GPU setup.

The eyes are a ways from 40 but text size IMO is comparable to a 24" 1080p. With scaling in 8.1 set to small (100%) I never find myself straining to read and I have never had things look improper for the resolution.
