Is there a non ACER 120hz+ 1440p gsync IPS monitor?

After bad luck with Acer XB270HU, are any other monitors (other brands) with same specs on the horizon?

Thanks thumb.gif

Went through 7 monitors with noticeable defects- stuck / dead pixels, smudges under the screen, etc.. Just not happy with overall quality. Feel free to look at my post history for details. I'm not really looking to clog this thread up with discussion of the ACER.(not trying to sound like a douche...just trying to keep forum clean)

There's 2 threads filled with great info with all the good and all the bad. Searching through those you can find any info you want. Or if you want my personal opinions (Lord help you), feel free to send me a PM biggrin.gif

I was wondering if anyone had heard of another company like ASUS, Samsung, BenQ, LG, etc. working on competing monitor with same specs. Thanks again!

The only other monitor thats anywhere near the Acer is the ASUS MG279Q but its freesync. Asus does have a 60hz gsync 4k 27" IPS coming that resembles the ROG Swift if you were to be interested in a 4k with gsync.

As far as I know, there are only a few G-Sync monitors available. A bit disappointing that there are not more.

1) Acer XB270HU. 27" 16:9 2560x1440 IPS 144Hz 8-bit
2) Asus PG278Q. 27" 16:9 2560x1440 TN 144Hz 8-bit
3) Acer XB270HA. 27" 16:9 1920x1080 TN 144Hz 8-bit
4) Philips 272G5DYEB. 27" 16:9 1920x1080 TN 144Hz
5) BenQ XL2420G. 24" 16:9 1920x1080 TN 144Hz
6) AOC G2460PG. 24" 16:9 1920x1080 TN 144Hz
7) Acer XB280HK. 28'' 16:9 3840x2160 TN 60Hz 8-bit

There are more upcoming G-Sync monitors.
Like a VA-panel monitor from Acer.
And 2 more (thanks Strider49).
8) Acer Predator Z35. 35" 21:9 curved 2560x1080 VA 144Hz
9) Asus ROG Swift PG27AQ. 27'' 16:9 3840x2160 IPS 60Hz
10) Acer XR341CKA. 34'' 21:9 curved 3440x1440 IPS 75Hz


Anyone other monitors with G-Sync that I have overlooked ?
I added 3 monitors, suggested by Strider49.
I got my eye on the Z35 now. Because I didn't like IPS for dark games.
Hopefully a VA screen is better for me.
But I'm still open to any other options. If there are any.

There is one more G-Sync monitor, the Acer XB280HK, 28'' 16:9 3840 x 2160 TN 60Hz 8-bit.

Two more upcoming G-Sync monitors:

ASUS ROG Swift PG27AQ: 27'' 16:9 3840 x 2160 IPS 60Hz

Acer XR341CKA: 34'' 21:9 curved 3440 x 1440 IPS 75Hz


Regarding the OP's question, no one knows.
