$249.99
+28 Deal Score
13,685 Views
Sold by Best Buy [bestbuy.com] for $250 but includes a $50 e-gift card.

Pros:
  • 1440p QHD
  • 144Hz
  • Freesync
  • 4ms response time
  • Innovative monitor arm/stand
Potential cons:
  • 250 nits (mediocre)
  • VA panel (better than TN, worse than IPS)
  • Freesync isn't releasing until September
  • No VESA mount
  • Limited ports & no USB-C
  • Stand/arm doesn't work with all desk
Samsung's website says [samsung.com] "Software update required for products manufactured before September 2019 to use AMD Radeon FreeSync™. Check the user manual for further information."

Can be made cheaper if purchasing an open-box model, using a discover card for 5% cash back, or checking Amex cards for (targeted) $25 off $250.

Well the gift card wasn't included until today. Made it go from a decent sale price to an excellent value imo.

You can also combine with Discover to get 5% back by paying with Paypal.

Just a heads up. The monitor is not VESA compatible. Too bad it doesn't come with freesync out of the box at this point in time.

Too many negatives with this monitor. No IPS, no freesync (yet), no DisplayPort, and the biggest one for me -a non-standard mount...

Yup. Although would be nice to be able to use my amex 25 off 250. Alas, will wait.

No display port? Then there's a good chance it won't support freesync at QHD 144hz, it'll be more limited I think.

Edit: It does have a mini-DP input....

I ordered a VA panel and just couldn't stand it side by side with my old IPS one. Had to return it and decided to go for Asus PG279QZ instead. I know it costs twice as much but my eyes just won't let me save that money.

There is an open box one for $220 and they still qualify for the $50 gc offer. Seems like a decent deal for a monitor all about looks over function.....

Gift card and promise of free sync made me bite (that and $75 in BB points I had banked).

Attractive space saver with great refresh rate and resolution for 27". Doesn't scream gamer, but will be probably sweet for FPS games. Hard to beat at $200 IMHO.
