Been eyeing this monitor and looks like Newegg rebutted to Microcenter's price with their own. I remember eBay's 10% ebay bucks expiring today, so decided to check it.

Noticed a deal alert for additional 7% off

480$
-$33.60 (7% off using PDEAL7)
-$48.00 (10% eBay Bucks) YMMV
= $398 + your state tax

$110 less than the front page deal, which had shipping charges or free pickup at Microcenter.

I was pretty excited about this deal since I have an alert for it but I can't get it lower than $488 after tax. Think I'll wait till BF and hope Amazon comes close.

Not a bad price at all. I have the 278q as my main monitor and love it. Just bought two prism 27" 165hz 2k monitors off eBay a few days ago for a solid 3 monitor spread and it's great! Mine were only $200 each but this is a better option for a main monitor

I have one and my girlfriend has one and neither has problems. Absolutely love this monitor. The colors are great and the 165 fps is a huge upgrade from my 60 fps 4k LG.

You can't subtract bucks from the price then add tax since bucks are earned. It's not a discount. Also, bucks are not as good as cash because they expire, can be used on eBay only and they don't earn cashback once spent.

The majority of this model has problems such as excessive light bleeding. My 1st 2 were terrible, but 3rd time was a charm. After returning both, I tried 1 last time and got a perfect one. The colors are amazing and for FPS games is perfection, but I'd never recommend this to a friend. Not worth the hassle.

TLDR there is a bit of a lottery on the backlight bleed.

I have the Acer version of this monitor and I believe it's the same panel and when I was researching to buy mine, all the reviews showed varying degrees of backlight bleed in the corners when the monitor shows black. It's noticeable on mine when I pull up a fully black image and the room is dark, but in my day-to-day work or gaming, it's not noticeable at all.

Well go buy it on Newegg then, without the 7% and eBay bucks. It'll still be cheaper than the last deals.
No need to be offended. This is still probably cheaper. It's your accounting that is incorrect.

I bought this monitor last year. Based off of my research at that time, it seemed like QC was very bad for this monitor which led to higher chances of the following 2 issues: Dead pixels and black light bleed.

Also one extra piece if info, if buying from online retailers such as Newegg, make sure to check their dead pixel policy (if they have one). This may be outdated info but last time I checked, Newegg has like a 7-8 (somewhere around there) dead pixel policy which means if you buy this monitor from them and it has 6 or less dead pixels on arrival, they consider it "normal" and may give you issues if you try to return or exchange for another unit. But..for a monitor that costs this much, one would expect 0 dead pixels and no black light bleeding..

OP is discounting the eBay bucks into the price. His posting is a little misleading. It's more like $446 + tax, with $48 eBay bucks to be used on a future purchase.

His post implies tax is on the $398, when in fact tax is calculated on $446..
