Anyone else interested?
Seems the 27 inch will do 2160p @ 144 Hz using IPS panel (but I would not be surprised if it ends up using 60 Hz when 2160p... Lets see)

SDR tho and "low" brigthness, but I don't care about that since I will use it at night only. I'm running my current monitor at 30% brightness which means I'm at like 150-175 nits now. 250 nits will be more than enough.

Should be cheap.

Are these actually using the new AUO IPS panels, that have a bit better response than M270? Also, how could the price be that low for 27" 1440p/2160p 144Hz IPS?

I wonder if the 1440p one uses some new panel instead of the same one thats used on xf270hua and others

Just ordered the xf270hua a couple of days ago. If its a bad one I guess I'll just return it and take my money back instead of playing another round of lottery.

Does LG have any Nano IPS 27 inch panels?

I would greatly prefer a LG panel over AU Optronics, those are hit and miss in my experience..

The 24" and 27" 1080p are 75 Hz LG panels.
The 27", 1440p/2160p will be either the new reported 144 Hz LG panels or the new revision of the AUO panels.

I guarantee you the 4k version of this monitor will not be 144Hz. However 1080p, 144Hz, AND IPS is actually the first of it's kind as none exists right now. So all the whiners of 1080p 144Hz TN and VA can now rejoice.

We will see, it's not HDR / 10 bit panel so bandwidth for 2160p @ 144 Hz should not be a problem if newer inputs are used. Tbh I don't need 2160p, 1440p would be enough, but has to be 25-27 inches.

I'd never buy a 1080p monitor at this point, regardless of panel. People that accepts 1080p TN usually don't care about image quality, they want speed and this IPS will be inferior in that regard.

Depends what the specs will be, so far they presented the specs confusingly and no one seems to know what size has what resolution and refresh rate options. Nor is it known what specific panels will be used.
It's time there are updates to the AUO 2015 IPS M270DAN2.x for sure.

Pretty sure most if not all the VG models that are 1080p will be 144hz. The 1440p and 4k ones will be 60hz.
I hope not, that would be an epic fail. 1440p should at least be 144 Hz.

I guess 1440p is 75Hz and 2160p is 60Hz.

You really can't expect much at a price of ~100€ on these monitors.
...100€?

"From $170" means that this will be the smallest version running 1080p. And this is ~150€

But the EMEA price is 139€, says there on the news.
+VAT = roughly 170EUR. Didn't think it was 27" 2160p 144Hz for 139EUR including tax right? Me neither. Would be ridiculous if it was 21.5" LOL and everyone started pulling their hair cryin' in agony when they see it. The 139/170EUR is for 21.5" 1080p 60Hz anyway :p

Some shops list them, but even then they get the listings completely wrong and utterly generic with not specific specs beyond the name, no size no resolution no refresh rate specifics :D Just an eshop placeholder listing to attract people, who search for Acer Nitro, to buy something else.
