The fact that no other manufacturers decided to use this panel gives pause for concern.

Will probably wait to hear more, also looks like they may make another run on MassDrop for cheaper very soon.

Do you have a Nvidia or AMD card? If you have nvidia are you going to try the new adaptive sync settings since the new updates allow it to work with freesync?

What do you mean it causes split screen? You have the new update and followed the instructions on your Nvidia 1080ti and enabled Gsync? I found the FPS needs to be 3-4 frames lower than the HZ. So 144hz should have 141fps and it looks really good.

Yup, everything followed instruction. Every time I reboot my PC, it will has split screen in the middle of my monitor, need to manually change resolution back and forth to make it gone. I thought I did something wrong at first, but end up my search shows some people also has split screen when they use gsync on a freesync monitor.

I was thinking of waiting for that too but I would imagine Newegg support might be better than Massdrop's and we might get more of a guarantee on a product from a relatively unknown brand also.

Have an Nvidia 1080 TI ftw3. I'm definitely going to enable Freesync. It was confirmed working in one of the massdrop threads already though.
