Acer Predator XB272-HDR and Asus ROG Swift PG27UQ ( 4K 27" 144Hz IPS HDR QD G-Sync Monitors ) - Page 16

What the hell is Asus smoking? $2k USD for a gaming monitor is stunningly ridiculous... So he either miss spoke, or Asus has a drug problem..
And his comment on US and Euro price being the same 2,000, doesn't seem right.. $2000 USD is about 1880 EUR

$2000 is eye-wateringly expensive and its only a 27 inch screen.
Ouch

I think $2000 is a good price for it. I know I will get one ASAP at that price so they probably shouldn't leave too much money on the table. tongue.gif

FALD + G-sync + 4K + 120Hz+ = $$$

I also think it's a good price, objectively.

Subjectively, it sucks, but it would be madness to expect less, TBH. OK, MAYBE 1700-1800$ would be doable, but I definitively can't see the first 4K 144hz with FALD+HDR to sell for less than that. Simply put NOPE. The monitor prices almost NEVER go down. My damn old u2412m is still for sale and the funny part is that it's more expensive now than it has ever been - mine was cheaper than current ones 5 years ago.

This is a good point I'm noticing as well. Monitor prices seem to pretty much stay the same even years later.

These monitors are in a class of their own -- experimental, therefore will demand their own premiums from early adopters. It gets lonely and costly at the top. Two loses for a win for most.

Full array local dimming. The backlight level is dynamically controlled in 384 zones across the screen, so the contrast in each of those zones ought to be at least that I guess (I've never seen an actual measurement of zone contrast).
