Just picked one up, hoping it works out but there are tons of bad reviews regarding flickering. At 310 for a 1440p 144hz IPS, hdr, this is an absolute steal if it works.

FWIW, I have it and have never had flickering issues with the 3 things I've used it on.

Xbox One X via HDMI using 120hz freesync? No flickering.

Hackintosh via DP at 144hz? No flickering. (Also works fine via HDMI)

Win10 PC via DP at 144hz? No issue. Even with NVIDIA GPU running, freesync enabled on the monitor, still no prob.

It's not perfect (had to send 2 units back because of dead pixels), but it's been nothing but amazing and it's one of the few monitors that actually allows 1440p at 120hz since for the Xbox. The other two that come to mind are either TN or at least 1.5x the cost of this one. At this price, you're right. It's a steal.

Did newegg give you a hard time returning monitor with dead pixel? I'm scared if mines have less then 8 and they wont replace it.

Any reason to get this over the dell s2719dg for $299 at amazon? That one does 155hz and gsync...

edit: the dell is TN and this is IPS. so the dell will (probably) have better pixel response times but this one will (probably) have better color and viewing angles.

Good to know about the Xbox One X Compatability.

Here's a review:

(On Amazon, you will also find the Acer Nitro VG271UP (VG271U Pbmiipx) which is the same monitor as the XV272U, but with a tilt-only stand.)

I had the 24" version of that monitor and the screen tearing was so bad on csgo, didn't matter what I did settings wise.

Games are different from pc and console. You can't say they are the same for FPS.

PC games are made to work with a variable amount of hardware and a console is fixed.

The software is then programmed to work with a console- so a Xbox one x is the best way to get 1440 120hz. And the game in question if it is programmed and labeled it can do it.... then it can. I can't say the same for PC as your video card ram and processor can be different from build to build

Here's another quote from Rob Shafer at displayninja:

"Xbox One X: 4K vs 1080p 120Hz vs 1440p 120Hz

Xbox One S and Xbox One X also support 120Hz refresh rate at 1080p and 1440p.

While most of the games are limited to 30FPS or 60FPS on Xbox One, some do have uncapped frame rates, such as Rainbow Six Siege.

Even when the frame rate is locked, a higher refresh rate is still useful as it reduces screen tearing, stuttering, and input lag.

Whether all that's a worthy trade-off for 4K and HDR depends on what games you are playing and your personal preference."

no its not both of them work on the same artitacture X86 and all of xbox games designed to be played on 60 hrz NO WAY it can produce more than 60 on games thinking otherwise is just wrong its GPU is no stronger than a geforce 1050 maybe even worse but its more optimizied tho .
