Although sarcasm is difficult to detect in online forums I believe that was the member's intent. That and exaggeration with all the numbers besides the eBay one maybe. You ever see what people ask on ebay for hardware that hasn't even been released? A 980 hydro copper was listed for $1750 on eBay before it was released. In the description it said please allow from 2-4 weeks to receive product.

lol the ROG tax was funny(as this monitors isn't even a ROG product) biggrin.gif
I know about eBay though, $349 for a Ouya console lol what a failure that was.

But all jokes aside.
For $599, this monitor is very appealing. It's on my shortlist for sure.

Has their been any mention of the Acer's price? If they're similarly priced, then the Acer seems like the obvious winner, but if the Acer is going to be $200-$300 more, I'll go with the Asus.

I also have more trust in Asus as a company, Acer has always been a bit hit and miss.

It really doesn't matter, beyond warranty support, what display manufacturer you go with if you are talking about one of the big guys. Acer and Asus both didn't manufacturer the panels and hardware in those displays, they just put them together.

In the case of the Acer it is using the AU Optronics AHVA panel, with PCBS manufactured by Novastar or Realtek, etc. Basically the brand on the front of the panel isn't who actually makes them, they more or less just put it together with their name on the front. So, don't get too terribly hung up on branding with a display.

As for cost, no official mention. I am guessing between $699 and $999. Only putting a number that high because there really isn't an official competitor to it right now; but then again Acer isn't known for price gouging that I can remember. So maybe we will see it at $599, just crushing everyone else in value.

Well there's more to a monitor than just the panel(assuming they're using the same panel). One might have higher quality control standards or might have better color calibration, etc.

Also the electronics in the monitors will most likely be quite different, since the Acer seems to have the G-Sync module + an additional controller. And the Asus seems to use a more conventional design that relies on adaptive sync.

Well all they need to do is release one for testing and about 3-4 Hundred for user reviews to see how many make it without dead pixels or Niagara Falls light bleeding.
