people with <$1500 budget, including a monitor in it, would have a hard time shelling out more than $300 for a monitor.

We are in a thread talking about $600 display vs $700 display - what connection do you see to people spending $300 on display ?

This.

These displays releasing are at the tip top of their respective category of monitors.

Everyone should expect them to carry some sort of premium.

I sure as heck don't see them costing anywhere below 500 USD to be honest.

$500 for a normal 1440p IPS monitor wasn't even exceptional last year. This one is cheap for what it is in comparison.

Huh?

Did you miss the 120Hz part?

Sorry, but the $500 Korean IPS of last year were HALF as fast.

That is the main appear of this monitor ... IPS and 120Hz.

I think you misunderstood my post, I meant that $500 was normal for last year's 1440p 60hz Ips monitors. and that this one is therefore quite cheap for what it is.

I picked up my Korean 120hz (the overclockable "b" tcon) for $328 in may of 2012. 60hz IPS Korean monitors have been sub $300 for a long time.

The major advantage here is not dealing with nearly as much ghosting and pixel lag since we're dealing with a bit of a different panel (and one rated for 120hz).

I think it will be interesting to see how much ghosting/overdrive is seen on this monitors and others like it coming up. Considering they stated themselves that pixel transition speeds are still slower then tn panels, it will be another interesting balance between tn speed and IPS color quality.

this is knowing that mid-end GPUs are the ones in dire need of G-Sync due to <60FPS performance.

That is very true, and maybe now that Freesync actually exists Nvidia will be forced to become more competitive with their "module". I have preferred Nvidia cards for the last 6-7 years, but I don't dislike or dismiss AMD, or their products. I actually encourage their (and other hardware manufacturers) heated competition because we the buyer always benefit. G-sync has been a premium for the last year and change because it was the only game in town, but that should change soon.

I own a GTX 980 right now and plan to add another within a few months. I am still going to consider this monitor (and the Acer XB270HU) because of it's price point alone. I am not totally convinced of either sync tech yet anyways and like that this is a monitor that panders to neither side really.

Ah, my mistake.

Odds are this will be a $699 panel.

The ASUS MG279Q? I think it will be $599, saw a video about it.
