Anyone tried Samsung C27RG50?

What's going on with this monitor? It's a VA panel that can keep with the best TNs in terms of response time?

I haven't tried one myself, but every single video I've seen of the monitor gives me this very unmistakable impression that it has some very poor transition times. And knowing what I know about VA monitors, that's probably the case. 0-255 transitions have always been some of the best for VA panels, so 5ms for those isn't exactly indicative of overall quality.

Curved, pass.
27", pass.
1080p, pass.
27" and 1080p together, get lost!
VA, pass.

No idea what's supposed to be attractive about it. It will not do 5 ms, ever. They would have to shift their TV team to monitors to do the OD on it and use their TV VA panel tech.
Their 144 Hz VAs in monitors are somewhere in the 35+ ms response time as far as I remember and have experienced on couple of their panels. Show me transitions from blacks to dark grays at 5 ms with a VA monitor, then we can talk about those 240 Hz even making sense at all.
