About a week and a half. It hasn't been available at all in my country though.

Oh okay. Well, you could always just return the XB270HU and wait it out until the XB271HU gets re-stocked, if it's going to really bother you? I don't have an easy answer for you haha. Consider too that you would be signing up for the panel lottery again, which isn't fun. If you end up getting multiple bad 271HU's you'll kick yourself for returning the 270HU.

Been keeping up with the thread since November, almost got salty that I bought mine from Vega for MSRP but then realized that people are still having a lottery, so I'm not as mad.

As for the guy a couple pages back asking about what stickers came on the monitor, mine doesn't have any stickers, just the "IPS" logo on the bottom left. No G-SYNC sticker and it's an Oct. model

Well...boo. My monitor got back to Newegg finally (took a week for shipping) and ended up getting a refund instead of a replacement. It looks like it is because Newegg is sold out.

So now I debate. Do I find another website to buy one from (is it even available anywhere else right now?) and enter the lottery again? Or do I just cut my losses and just get a TN monitor instead. I really like my 2 year old 60Hz IPS monitor vs my 4 year old 120Hz TN but from everything in this thread and other places it seems the tech is not quite there for 144Hz 1440p IPS. I wonder if TN screens have improved significantly in quality in the past 4 years to narrow the gap between TN and IPS.

Time for RESEARCH!

In terms of lottery- only if you arte patient enough to keep playing it.

In terms of TN vs IPS- don't ask this question here. There are really big anti-TN guys here (with good arguments), as well as those who really don't see THAT much difference in gaming (for work/photo etc. IPS blows TN by miles). And both will try to convience you that they are right biggrin.gif.

So your best option is....try for yourself. Get PG or new Dell TNs 144Hz 27 1440p and see if it suits you. For PURE gaming you can check TN.

But if you plan to do other kids of work on your monitor like photo/video editing etc. IPS all the way.

I ordered mine from Frys online, but they also have physical stores if you happen to live close to one. You can also wait for Viewsonic to release its gaming IPS monitor, but initial rumors say it'll cost over $1000.

I went from a 144hz AOC TN to the XB1. Now that I have a good one and have actually spent time gaming on it instead of packing them back up for return, I do notice a pretty nice difference in color pop. The IPS is also easier on my eyes, I find the text just sharper overall. It may be that my TN had a more aggressive anti-glare coating. My viewing is straight on so I don't really care about poor viewing angles of the TN.

As great as modern TN's can be, i.e., the Dell, you will still suffer from gamma shift. Some people have also reported pixel inversion. My AOC didn't have any pixel inversion. But gamma shift really bothers me. As much as I love the AOC, I can't stand it. If you're used to IPS you'll notice it, especially on a 27" TN.

So you have to figure out what type of gamer you are. If you are all about FPS and fast paced twitch shooters and play on a competitive level, TN is for you. If you appreciate better color vibrancy, uniformity, and don't really care about a minuscule amount of increased overall lag, you would stick with IPS 165 hz.

For the average Joe gamer / normal gamers (myself included) these new IPS 165hz monitors do have the best tech out there at the moment (aside from OLED). My favorite games are racing games. I notice right away a better looking sky (that doesn't change color when I sit back in my chair), clouds, bright colors of cars popping off the screen from sunlight, and overall atmosphere with the XB1 compared to my TN.

If you are willing to be patient and go through possibly multiple exchanges to get a good one (either PG279Q or XB1) it is very much worth it.

That is true. And I am very much the type of gamer that prefers better color, image quality, and immersion over twitch competitive play.

That said, as best as I can tell the XB271HU is sold out everywhere in the USA unless you want to deal with 3rd party sellers.

I'm tempted to just get the XB270HU now. As best as I can tell the only difference is that the newer 271HU can OC to 165Hz which is not that big of a deal to me. You are hard pressed to get a game running at 1440p at 144 FPS as it is, an extra 21Hz is not going to make much of a difference I dont think.

The main reason I want a monitor NOW is because I just rebuilt and upgraded my PC so I want a better monitor to go with everything.

I'm on my third monitor now. The first one had severe backlight bleed, second had bleed, burn-in and flickering and now this one has bleed and a dead pixel.

Dear god, how is the QC on a $1000 monitor so crappy?
