Not a hot deal or anything since it went down to $130ish a bit ago, but for those shopping for a monitor thought I'd share my final pick at around this $150 price point. Has Freesync to 75hz. IPS Panel. Youtube video shows the 75Hz is also available to Nvidia users ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vDH6xzYSbQ8
), so you don't have to do anything weird to force that mode it appears. It was bugging me that the LG in it's class had that burgundy color to the base, as well as bezels that weren't present in the previous year's model, but I digress. There was also a Philips in this price category and price point but had zero reviews or information outside the product page.
No VESA, and allegedly the HDR10 that it claims to support may only be simulated, so there's that. The speaker is apparently very good, and is totally removable away from the stand if you really don't want it. This model without speaker is available at best buy for 149.99 as well. People said in a previous deal comment section that the color was noticeably better than all the other ones around it, so take that with a grain of salt.
Free expedited shipping through adorama for orders over $50. Not a ton of stock on Amazon but has Prime shipping there as well. Newegg Premiere eligible as well. Monitor available at
So yeah, ~150ish for an IPS monitor that is color neutral, has as thin of bezels as you can get today, supports Freesync, has an actually good (and removable) speaker, and goes to 75Hz. Just wanted to share my final choice after reviewing plenty else. Hope the wife will like it with her new desktop build.
