Found this deal through pcpartpicker's daily monitor price drop emails. This monitor can OC to 165hz, and I've read people OCing it past that without issues.

I've always heard the Dell S2716DG is a solid monitor to get for $500 which is identical to this except it can't overclock. Can you find an IPS that is identical to this at around the same price or lower?

please tell me which costco you saw it. if you can snag one for me and ship to me could be great. I can't find one in Texas. I will pay all the cost of course. PM me if you interest.

he is mention about Acer re certified site i believe. it have similar to this price once a while.

Like This [acerrecertified.com]

I tried S2716DGR and after some tweak it is great but just let you know it have limitation of TN panel that dark and grey level are chunk together and hard to see the detail in game. once you got spoiled by a IPS monitor you just cant go back.

$500 is still a ridiculous amount to pay for a TN monitor. The deal may be slick and the Predator is a good monitor but pay the extra/wait for a deal for IPS. It's worth it.

I have the IPS version and was about to dive into a second one. Then saw it was the TN one and said NOPE!

even if this is cheaper than normal, no one should even consider buying this monitor. at this price you can snag an ips freesync 144hz or get another g sync 144hz tn monitor for a cheaper price.

The Dell S2716DG is pretty good, I received mine a few days ago and I've been enjoying it.

You might've seen this deal already but I'll just share it again just in case = https://slickdeals.net/f/10220220-dell-27-inch-gaming-monitor-s2716dg-144hz-1440p-g-sync-price-matched-to-399-99-ymmv

TN? might as well get the Dell S2716DG... I have one and my only complaint is stuck pixels popping up, but all I have to do is touch the screen gently by them.
