This monitor is as low as $349.99 after a $20 Mail-in rebate [microcenter.com]. Recommended that you purchase from your local Micro Center; otherwise, you'll be paying big shipping fees in addition to sales tax.

Various websites indicate that this monitor is G-Sync Compatible

Some reviews have mentioned coil whine while others have mentioned that their units do not exhibit that behavior.

Yes, I say G-Sync Compatible because on 10-series cards and up, G-Sync can be enabled on FreeSync-supported monitors.

Not every monitor with FreeSync will work very well with G-Sync, but this is one that reviewers have said works well.

Killer deal. Just bought this two weeks ago for $420 and I love it. It's 100% Gsync compatible, no noticeable input lag vs my previous Dell 144hz TN 1ms Gsync monitor. I'm using an RTX 2080 and this plays about everything AAA on Ultra around 90fps.
Do realize Microcenter shipping isn't free. If you buy on Amazon with Circuit City as the seller, you get free two day shipping and no sales tax charge. So it's about the same overall

It's 5ms I think with the firmware update and it's a VA panel, not tn.

Definitely one thing that you lose out on for the price. And while I wish it had VESA support out of the box instead of requiring their mount kit, at least there's an option at all.

In my case, I'm going to use mine at work for software development. I'm tired of having to rotate my head across 3 1080p monitors. Definitely causes some neck strain. This monitor gives me what I need to be productive and alleviate the neck strain.

According to the datasheet this is Freesync only. The weakest part is the stand and keep in mind this does not have a Vesa mount so you cannot use an aftermarket stand unless you drop another $25

No sales tax in WA state and shipping is $38 which is almost the same as sales tax would have been. So a solid deal for us.

The cheapest I've seen for a 3440x1440 ultrawide. Next is the acer that went for about 385. That one has adjustable stand. That can be overclocked a bit to about 118hz. Mine is stable to @ 115hz. Don't know if this can be overclocked or not. Damn good price tho.

Awesome price if you can pick up, for me the tax plus shipping kills it.

Fit and finish isn't that great. Mine did it for a couple of weeks and then stopped....
Edit: I thought I was replying to the post about the clicking sound.
