Available @ Costco [costco.com]for $499.99 during 5/6 - 5/19. Some might argue this deal isn't as good as the Buydig deal, which made front page a week ago for the same price, but being tax-free for most; but shopping at Costco has its perks, which outweigh the tax-free perk in my opinion.

Personally purchased this monitor last week from Costco, and will be requesting a store PM. Love it and hate it. I've never had such a problematic monitor. Issues with the monitor blanking out using displayport. Has issues displaying my computers BIOS -- goes straight to login (I've read of others having this exact same issue -- maybe it just does't play well with the ASUS bios). And it's a serious desk hog; you can't use a desk with this monitor -- you need a table!

This monitor is awesome. I play most games on the 1080p/144hz setting with no issues. I'm using an ASrock motherboard and gtx1070.

Just curious,
What is the benefit of buying a monitor over a TV? Looks like TVs are much larger and cheaper these days.
pixel density, refresh rate, color accuracies are different, monitors are meant to be used in close distance

I tried the 40" 4K TV option. Very laggy (I'm not even talking about games -- just desktop use), and I'm running a GTX 1080. On top of that, scaling issues galore. You think you can find a sweet spot, but it's never really right. Also, at 40", even if you calibrate it (which I did with mine using a Spyder), you need a good 5'+ distance to avoid color shifting; the color shifting is bad, like move your head 2" left/right and you'll see an entirely different shade. I can see myself trying 40"@4K again someday (these huge displays are becoming the norm), but it would have to be curved.

The curve on this monitor is subtle, but it actually does seem to help with the color shifting. I'm coming from a 32" 1440p HP Envy (it died on me, even after extensive CPR).

What happened exactly? I have the 32" HP Envy w/Beats. No issues besides one dead pixel.

Original screen was swapped out under warranty.

Mystery. Sparked when I connected a good HDMI cable. I was testing a new build, so it was the 2nd input for the monitor. From what I've read, maybe a ground loop issue? Or a faulty 1080 (which also fried in the process). Or a faulty motherboard. I can test the ground loop theory, but if it's true, -1 monitor and who knows what else. Suffice to say, I stay away from that outlet now :/

It definitely hurt. Not because of what it was worth, but because it forced me to buy a new monitor this year. I was hoping to upgrade in a year or 2. What can you do? Life is unpredictable sometimes.

I tried using a tv monitor for pc gaming a while back. The results were atrocious. The refresh rate made any games unplayable but it was ok for display/web browsing.

I have it mounted, it comes with an attachment to be used with vesa, so it doesn't have holes on the monitor it's an attachment to where you would put the stand.

It's a circular attachment with 2 rings where the inside ring is shallow to be screwed onto the monitors base and the outer ring is used for the vesa mounting.
