Seems like a decent price for a 2k 144Hz screen. I have a Acer K272HUL 27" that has served me well for the past 2 years.

Lots of reviews mention a flickering issue...Recently bought a different TN 1080p Acer monitor from that lightning deal I haven't been happy with and considering returning that and getting this for $100 more. Anyone have issues with this monitor?

I've owned this monitor since May, and haven't experienced any flickering. However, I also am using a high bandwidth 1 meter HDMI cable, and the cable can certainly make a difference at this resolution and refresh rate. My monitor also had a goofy default configuration that I changed before I even connected my PC. Out of the box, freesync was disabled, and a strobing feature intended to reduce response time was enabled.

Maybe I just missed it but does this have a VESA mount?

Also, seems to be a crap shoot on flickering.

Other than that everything on this looks awesome... hmmm.... to roll the dice or not...

id rather get the samsung space monitor for 250 at best buy, people are also right about the stand. it is horrible, doesnt lock in or anything. so vesa mounting is a must. the panel is a hit or miss...hdr 400 is trash

Is a 1080 TN really even a fair comparison to a 1440 IPS? Assuming your GPU can handle it, I would return the 1080 yesterday.

Thanks for the comments regarding the flickering people are seeing. This looks to be discounted because of issues or poor reviews. I will keep looking.

I thought HDMI wasn't able to support 144hz. Why not use the display port?

Just from what I've seen, the "flickering" seems to be common amongst monitors that have similar specs (27" 1440p) and have FreeSync but aren't G-Sync compatible and people use Nvidia cards and enable G-Sync. In my opinion, it's not an issue of the monitor, it's an issue of Nvidia releasing drivers that enable compatibility with the monitor

It's not guaranteed to, but I've not had any trouble with this:
Monoprice Certified Premium HDMI Cable - Black - 3 Feet | 4K@60Hz, HDR, 18Gbps, 28AWG, YUV 4:4:4 https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01GCGKBWC/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_qsAtDbFZYK2SB

Display port is probably a better option for most people, but I was already using this with my previous 60hz monitor, and this monitor does not come with a dp cable in the box. I think a lot of people just reuse existing cables when swapping monitors, and thought it would be worth mentioning.
