It's sad to see you bought such a crappy cheap A- panel that has a degraded image quality when you overclock it. rolleyes.gif

I am going to say $499 to $599. Only because the ultra high end Acer that is coming out is positioned at the $700 mark it seems, and it has several advantages over this panel. 144 Hz, G-Sync, and ULMB. I would think there would be a decent cost difference between these two.

EDIT:

There is a possibility I am confusing the $700 displays though, so take it with a grain.

I hope you don't actually believe what you just put up for us to read.

First, it's still 60hz and I didn't overclock it. It was more to point out that monitor cost for user don't really decrease (fast). Secondly, I am really sad to see that display technology is also moving slowly. Why am I paying today 899/949$ (for ref: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824236405&cm_re=swift-_-24-236-405-_-Product and http://www.ncix.com/detail/asus-pg278q-rog-swift-27in-e5-100910.htm) For a monitor like the swift?

1440p has been out for years, TN and IPS technology has been out for 2 decade. The only thing that this differs from a normal 1080p 144hz tn panel is that the screen is a few inch bigger (and obviously the gsync module that cost about 150$ to include).

Same thing goes for those new 120Hz IPS displays, Why there is such a premium on those when you can buy a 4k tactile screen in a 5inch form factor, with a processor, memory, OS,GPS, gyroscopes and battery included(aka phones) for less then a regular plain monitor? It's not rocket science, the cost of the materiel isn't high and is not more expensive then regular 60hz monitor, the way the monitors function has not changed for decades, the technology has been out for years and yet it's going to cost me 2.5 times more expensive then the other plain monitor from 2 years ago? Beside adding 120hz with a flashy red color on the box is there a manufacturing reason/cost on why the premium is so high?

yeah it is sad to see how slowly monitor tech is moving.... there are so many phones with higher resolution than my 23" monitor, and they are IPS or IGZO usually. I even heard about 120hz smartphone screens the other ay (not even a big deal AT ALL on phones.) LCD seems as if it has been around for AGES too.

The crazy part is that this new tech for 2015 is still pretty amazing considering how long we have waited just for this. .

We seem to forget every price a manufacturer releases is suggested that doesn't include the ridiculous mark up etailers will put on these especially when most people in North America won't see them till end of 2015. Going to go ahead call it pirates will hijack every shipment coming form third world so maybe 2-3 batchs will make it over if we're lucky.

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 ?

simple, progress of technology, how soon can we expect this sort of monitors to drop below $300?
the most likely answer to that is never though.

it took us quite a long time to see 1920x1080 60Hz IPS monitors to become prevalent below $200.
like wise to 1920x1080 120Hz/144Hz TN monitors going for below $300.

The crazy part is that this new tech for 2015 is still pretty amazing considering how long we have waited just for this. .

A few days ago I came across an article written 3 years ago on extremetech that discussed the reluctance of manufacturers to pursue large high resolution displays. The main reason being the market/demand for such displays and the price to produce them. The majority of the desktop monitor market want cheap, bright, and fast panels and the minority want high resolution displays with good color fidelity. Monitor pricing tends to have a large impact on sales, hence a reluctance to produce expensive and more polished models. So although the technology has been around the demand is relatively low (compared to mainstream Best Buy monitors) and costs to produce them are high. Not to mention the extremely low tolerance for defects at the higher pricing range. It makes sense that monitor tech moves a bit slow compared to portable device screens.

Things have changed in the tech world over the last 3 years no doubt, but business is business. We won't see affordable high def monitors until the cost to produce them drops to the point that they are marketable. This monitor is a step in the right direction though.

Will be $499.

I will take the Acer in that Asus chassis.

I would love the Acer in the MG279Q chassis actually. Nice bezel design and stand.
