    Definitely a good idea to look into. I would definitely see what the return/replacement options are before buying an $800 monitor. That being said, I hope you don't have problems with it It's a great monitor if you get one that works.

    Hi Pennyboy, I am one of those owners that read every word/ every post I could find, prior to purchase. Then after purchase, my Swift worked so well, I didn't return to the forums until tonight, lol.
    I've had mine for 2 weeks now.
    I've only played a few games so far - WOW, Assassin's Creed 4, Far Cry 3, Watch Dogs etc.
    I am only running a single GTX 770, and I did take a performance hit on around 60% of games.
    So I dropped my settings from Ultra to Very High to maintain 80 - 120fps.
    The performance of my particular screen is fantastic.
    The only negative I had at all, was, after testing for dead/stuck pixels, I found 2, which annoyed the hell out of me.
    The step I took to fix them (which I am not recommending, but worked for me) was to apply slight pressure to the dead/stuck pixel area with my index finger and they both disappeared and haven't returned. (that was 2 weeks ago)
    I can see some owners are having issues, I am not.
    So from my own personal experience I would recommend the Swift

    1st monitor could not go above 85Hz (on AMD card) without blinking (off/on every 1 sec) and flickering like crazy at 144Hz
    2nd had red vertical red stripes across the middle of the screen.
    3rd had horizontal striping/flickering across whole panel
    4th is working like a charm. I dont have microstutter on 2x780ti SLI in BF4 when i cap the fps to 120. Turbo button works as it should and even ULMB will engage automatically when i go below 144hz. (can be turned off manually though)

    So im very pleased now with the one i have.

    I spoke with my supplier and they said I can return it if I have any issues, so I am going to order one as soon as they are in stock (18th of Sept) at this stage. I'm really looking forward to it because its going to be a big step up from my current 24" 1080 120hz screen, which I must say I love.

    Sacrifice a lamb and smear the blood on your door frame too for good luck. You never know what ritual might help. XDActually, wait, don't do that. That might scare off the delivery man!
