Looks amazing but won't buy purely because of the Y stand. 😞

Never understood why people care what a stand looks like so much.

April release date, $999.

With a big mousepad it's hard to get the monitor close enough without using the stand at an extreme angle, and then it comes between keyboard and pad and it looks horrible.

Personal preference really. I just prefer the Zowie and basic Dell stands and would rather avoid spending extra on a mount. The next Alienware stands are more basic too based on pro player feedback - or so I'm led to believe anyway.

They're really annoying unless you prefer to play with the monitor much further back that's all. This is one of the better Y stands because its flat so keyboard legs will usually be enough if needed, but it's still unnecessary in design.

Looking forward to your thoughts if you buy.

Oh I thought you were coming at it from a totally cosmetic standpoint like so many people do. Freak out about stand shapes. You could always get a VESA mount/arm like I have!

I will most likely be buying this to test as soon as it comes out.

Depends on the TN panel. The new gaming IPS panel from Innolux seems to suck, so there aren't too many alternatives.

Impressive specs to say the least. Is the difference between IPS and TN really noticeable at the high end of display tech where this is?

Yes, especially with these new faster TN models.

(link isn't auto loading for some reason)

Above, you can see very fast TN panels like the AOC AG251FZ and ASUS PG278Q have mid to high 2md average GTG. The fastest IPS panels, such as the ASUS PG279Q, have about 5ms GTG. These new "0.5" MS TN panels will have a realistic GTG of around 1.5 to 2 ms, so around 2.5-3 times as fast as the fastest IPS.
