Unless you are ok with gaming at 60-75hz there is no reason to go with it. Besides of the heafy $1.3k price tag.

Whoa. I decided on a 980Ti and that new Acer yesteday, but this changes things now. It depends where they price this at. It better not be more than $100 over the Acer.

I have the Acer XB270HU on back order. I really really hope this Asus comes to market soon as I'd much rather have an Asus with matte bezels than the shiny Acer, not to mention all the QC issues of the Acer. If anyone is at computex right now, can you please ask the Asus guys about pricing and release date?

As far as price goes, they're going to have a hard time putting it higher than the $799 that the Acer XB270HU is going for, even though they're replacing the TN Swift it seems.

I'm expecting it to be priced higher than the XB270HU (although I wish/hope it isn't). Here the TN Swift is only £80 cheaper than the XB270HU, unless Asus drop the TN price I can't see them pricing the IPS model so closely. Everybody who was eyeing the XB270HU will be waiting for this monitor thanks to the atrocious QC from Acer's initial batches.

The only question that remains is "when"
I waited enough time as it is for the acer, only to find out about it's QC. I hope it gets released within this month. Currently i'm on my 3rd acer and the return period ends in luke 3 weeks.
