Many VA panels have black-to-grey transition times that would barely qualify them for 60Hz panels yet we see many 144Hz displays from Samsung where the high refresh feature is practically useless since you get noticeable black smearing on screen.
For me personally I value picture quality over refresh rate as my competitive gaming days are long over. That being said I wouldn't say no to 144Hz obviously, it is just not a priority. A jump from 1440p to 2160p is immediately noticeable whereas a jump from 100Hz to 144Hz is felt only on super fast rotations usually with mice set on high DPI or high in-game sensitivity. We are talking about extremely diminishing returns.
