    New HDR monitors

    Looks great and I even considered preordering one, but $2000 for a 27 inch monitor? Wow.

    Yes, the buy in is quite high for sure even for those of us who approach these things on zero compromise. It doesn’t matter how you cut it, it’s a lot of money for a 27” panel. This isnt the correct subsection for it, either

    Pros:
    27", 4K (3840x2160), HDR, G-Sync, 144Hz, <4ms IPS, 10-bit color (awesome panel!)
    DP 1.4 and HDMI 2.0 inputs (HDMI always handy for old gaming consoles, DVD/BRD players, etc)
    Awesome sturdy swiveling base mount, standard VESA mounts (this ain't some cheap flimsy wobbly junk)

    Cons:
    USD$2000+ is much too much, especially since two competitors offer the same panel for ~$1300
    "97% DCI-P3, 99% Adobe RGB" is not "% sRGB" (the only color space standard that really matters), and "10-bit dithering" is not "true 10-bit color"
    Ambient light brightness/sensor stuff (can sometimes be annoying if unable to manually configure/disable)
    Embedded HDCP 2.2 (yuck)

    Meh:
    "Plasma copper & Armor titanium" scheme and aggressive ROG Swift styling (looks fierce but would prefer less obtrusive and simple black)
    180W peak power consumption (not too shabby but I think could and should be better, this thing will get hot!)
    USB 3.0 ports (cool to have, but for what?)
    Seems to lean heavily on clever firmware/software processing tricks and factory-overclocked components (instead of just using better hardware)

    Hoping to go ultrawide myself. Perhaps a utlrawide ASUS or Acer monitor when the new versions come out. Can't see spending much more that $1000 (give or take $200) on a nice gsync monitor atm. It is either that or upgrade my 1080's to the new 1180's. Hmmm....
