We actually talked about it and he might be cancelling the order, not sure yet, but as DNMock said $1300 for this monitor does seem like robbery indeed. The 32" Samsung is $930 @ B&H and even that feels pricey when you can get even larger 4k smart tvs for less, granted they're going to have massive latency problems and no VRR, but being that it's freesync theres no expensive gsync tax involved, so i feel like Samsung just wanted to mark up the monitor a bit. Doesn't seem to be selling too well either on the count of the lack of user reviews on Amazon among other places.

I ordered it from newegg. just now and they are getting ready to ship it (from the order status). I should have it in 3 days.

I'm looking forward to playing the division and i'll see what the deal is with gysnc. I can't take it slow when other humans are shooting at me. smile.gif

PQ > screen tearing > blur (for me)

This monitor will give me some time (if i can control myself) for the dell OLED for reviews to come out.

My gut tells me 4 way SLI and Gysnc are going have problems.

it is a shame the stand is so god damn ugly... and that is says predator on the front.

Hello,

If you are trying to display more than 60fps - does the 60hz limitation of this monitor impact that?

personally i'm not that worried about displaying only 60 - what i'm hoping is the games will run at there normal 90+ fps so i don't have any input lag. The output of the 60 doesn't care me. Vsync causing input lag does. Tearing sucks soo.. but not as much as vsync cased input lag smile.gif So Gysnc will do some magic that i can still run the game at high fps while not getting rips on my screen.
I've been play at 60hz forever now (and years at 4k). I'm not scared smile.gif

and honestly i play most games on my 4k OLED TV anyway smile.gif - but for the division i'll need (so i don't suck vs humans) mouse and keyboard so i'll be playing on the monitor. I'll get a OLED monitor this year too. Looks matter to me more than anything. If i have to get tears with amazing pix and no blur on OLED - i don't care smile.gif

I'm not familiar with gsync other than what little I've read. Can you turn on and off gsync - is it on the monitor or in the video card display settings?

G-SYNC is controlled by GPU settings in NVIDIA Control Panel, so you can turn it on/off there. There are two G-SYNC settings; one that applies G-SYNC to all fullscreen applications, and one that applies it to all fullscreen and windowed applications.
