Sold Out at my Microcenter. Crossing fingers that they get more stock while the Student discount is still valid.

I would get this in a heartbeat if i had a microcenter near by. The $50 off for students makes this a pretty slick deal for a 2k 144hz ips gsync monitor.

Same. I'm not laying down this kind of cash until I can get my HDR, high-refresh-rate, 4k gsync monitor. I'm tired of how monitors are so far behind TV's lately.

You guys are patient, I'll give you that. In the meantime, what's half a grand when it comes to enjoying something>

To give an alternate opinion, most people who have the cash to get a $550 monitor have the hardware to push a high enough frame rate that gsync isn't a necessity. Also, for the FPS players out there, you're never going to want this monitor to drop below 144hz anyway, so you won't even use gsync

Well, I think of GSync as additional insurance that my i7-7700K and GTX 1080 Ti's output is properly synced with the 1440p 165 Hz refresh rates. As you may know, the GPU doesn't produce its 200+ frame rates at a constant interval the way the monitor's refresh rates are. That's the value-add of GSync (even if it locks me into using an Nvidia GPU).

Finally, this monitor is an IPS panel with just 4 ms input delay. That's a small input delay price to pay for a robust, beautiful image with amazing refresh rates.

I think you're joking at least partly, but the HDR Gsync (and freesync) monitors are out or are coming out at the end of the year. That will be a huge difference, especially if you can couple it with 4k res. Even though it will cost more than this monitor, I can afford nice video cards to drive it so I'll save my money until what I really want is available.

While you're right if you need to max out settings on every game, but if you tweak things so you can get above 144 or 165 at all times, then it's not really an issue, and paying a $200 premium would be better spent on more gpu power
