Problem is monitors like 1440p 144hz IPS g-sync are a niche product and not so many people buy them. ASUS can't sell them for like 300$.

Not as niche as you think, I ordered an ACER 34" G-sync 100hz 3440x1440 monitor at the beginning of January. After waiting a month I checked the status on the order and was told it was expected to ship end of feb or early march.

Basically a 2 to 3 month wait on a product released in September.

Every retailer is sold out and back ordered on them.

May just want to cancel that and try to get the Asus ROG version of that same monitor, supposedly about to be released any day now. Many are saying it does 100Hz out of the box, so QC may be better on the Asus compared to the Acer.

exactly what I am talking about.

If it wasn't a niche product then you wouldn't have to wait so long because they have a higher volume of production anyways.

It probably will get better this year when more and more people move on from 1080p to something better and more manufacturers start to move onto 4K/120hz 1440p/144hz 21:9 high refresh rate etc.

Hell I am still on 1080p and I desperately want to move on, but GPUs are so god damn bad and hinder me from making the jump.

Exactly the same reason I am using a 34" ultrawide @ 1080p, and also about to buy the Z35 1080p monitor as opposed to any of the current 1440p offersings at the same price. Even with a 980Ti, I'd rather have the higher FPS than the higher resolution.

I already did. Got a cheap 4k IPS Korean monitor (Upstar, was like $350 for a 28") and was going to pre-order the Asus, but with the news on the Pascal Titans dropping in April, I will probably just wait it out and get a 4k 120hz or a monitor like this samsung when they come out this summer.

These are VA panels! Got I hope they have at least 3500:1 contrast ratio and hopefully can do light-strobing, although at 144Hz, its not THAT much better if you can pull 144fps that is biggrin.gif.

FYI: VA panels have greatly improved as far response time and blurring goes. They have what's called Historical Stigma that no longer applies and yet keeps people away from whatever item that wasn't all that great back in the day, but is much better today.

The same thing happened with plasma TV's, which are many times superior than ANY LCD's as far as image quality and motion goes. Yet the whole misunderstanding of "image burn-in" and plasma TV's being dim got them a bad reputation, but barely applied to the later models.

Resolution is nice, very nice, but it barely compensates for other factors as long as its not below 1080p. I actually find detail at 1080p more visible than at 1440p. I have to sit just far-enough away to almost not see pixels. Otherwise I can't witness all the fine detail games offer! I still game on my 40" 1080p TV when playing a game with a controller. I sit 6ft away from that TV and its a perfect distance!

But, sure, let's keep saying AUO is crap.

Those same exceptional scoring reviews also just tend to gloss over the issues like extreme IPS glow that is independent of backlight bleed.

I certainly don't gloss over such issues in my reviews, in fact I write about that quite extensively. smile.gif

I get the same impression. Maybe it's because every hooman on earth already has at least a 23" 1080p monitor, and the market is just saturated. Could it be that LCDs were much cheaper a few years ago, because everybody wanted to get rid of their big, fat CRT? If that is the reason, then maybe there will be more demand again when the first mainstream OLED enter the market.

EDIT: Come to think of it, another possible explanation might be that there are just less and less people who actually buy a PC and Monitor combo. Laptops and tablets are far more popular these days.
