If y'all had to do it all over again, Would you buy this monitor? is the premium worth it for the IPS compared to lets say a TN paneled Acer XG270HU which is $200 less in canadia?

No i wouldn't, i would wait for the Nixeus that will have 30-144hz freesync range and probably just better QC all around.

Well these seem to be my options:

Acer 27in XG270HU TN Refurb: 570$
Benq XL2730 TN : 720$
Acer Predator XB271HU IPS: 999$
ASUS MG279Q IPS: 750$
Dell 27 S2716DG TN: 720$

Coming from 2 VHAsus 242H. Considering the Asus IPS panel is pretty much the same price as the TN panels, I find it hard to justify a TN panel.
I want things on screen to be Perty biggrin.gif:D:D

or course, the other option is to go to 24" land

LG 24GM77-B TN - 420$
ASUS MG248Q TN - 380$
ViewSonic XG2401 TN - 340$
Samsung CFG70 AHVA - $590
DELL S2417DG TN - $530

Finally got one ! After so many month of careful consideration I found one used for a very reasonable price. So far it is amazing (coming from a 24'' 1080p 120hz TN Panel).

One really does have to get used to the size after 6 years of 24''.

The only downside is that because of higher resolution and bigger screen size all those "lower quality" streams, videos, picture etc. are noticeably worse. Atleast perceived worse.

Now I only have to find out everything that one does have to know about Freesync biggrin.gif

There is a difference between 108.79 PPI vs 91.79 PPI thumb.gif
How do you feel the size text ? is it readable without using scaling in windows/apps
Or maybe I guess you increased the size text by 125% ? people find it blurry by windows scaling text
I like ppi from 95 to 100 and i sit 2 feet away from my monitor and I hate increasing font size in Windows.

What about this one?

https://www.amazon.com/Acer-Predator-XB271HU-Abmiprz-2560x1440/dp/B01N11QIYW/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1489159510&sr=8-3&keywords=acer+165hz

Acer 27" 165Hz 1440p G-Sync TN 1ms for $599. Uses an 8-bit TN Panel instead of IPS.
