I don't really understand why Dell hasn't jumped on that bandwagon. With Dell's leg up on marketing and QC, it might be a nice alternative to the current selections from ASUS and Acer. I don't see it undercutting the S2417DG because the S24 it looks like it's carving out a nice piece of the 24" market. However it might hurt the S2716DG because 27" owners are looking for a more general purpose monitor.
I'm really looking forward to Black Friday.
I wager Dell sees those AUO AHVA panels and deems they are too problematic. If they started making 144 Hz IPS monitors and tightened up QC standards they might have supply issues? And if they don't tighten up on them compared to Acer and ASUS, it'd make them look bad considering their monitor reputation is far better than Acer and ASUS. This is all conjecture though.
I agree with MistaSparkul. I have an XB270HU, and if I can go back in time I would have gotten the PG278Q instead. Or the Eizo Foris FG2421 even. What did I spend the extra $200 for? IPS glow and viewing angles I don't benefit from. Maybe gamma shift is a very minor issue head-on with the 27" TN monitors, I've heard some conflicting reports on this, but it's not as bad as the IPS glow of this XB270HU, I guarantee it.
I might actually try one of them Samsung 1080p 144 Hz VA monitors next year. Depends on what their blur reduction implementation is like.
