You could get this exact monitor for cheaper by going with the 27GL83A-B model [amazon.com] that sells for 380. Got mine in July 2020 for 344. Recently it's out of stock but they should be back soon. There is no difference in the panel as far as I know. Both the 27GN850-B and and 27GL38A-B are seemingly the same 27GL850-B made cheaper by having no built in USB hub.

the 27GN850 is the exact same panel as the 27GL850. It just does not have the USB hub built into the monitor. For me this isn't the deal breaker. It even shows up as a GL850 in my hardware profile (under Big Sur). This monitor is fantastic - but I work in a darker room so I don't need eye scorching 500nits brightness. It also supports PS5 @4K (the display downsamples to 1440p) - and works with 120Hz via HDMI for both xsex and ps5.

Great monitor for this price!

PS - if you are wanting to run this via HDMI @144hz, it won't work unless you turn off Adaptive Sync first. With adaptive sync on, the display will go up to 120hz on a pc and on a Mac (at least on my M1 device), it will only run it at 100Hz via HDMI. Once you turn off adaptive sync in the menu, it will allow 144hz using HDMI. This isn't a case with DisplayPort cable BUT and a big but is the fact if you use a USB-C -> Displayport cable there is some extremely strange flickering - it's constantly flickering at 144hz. This is with the USB-C -> DisplayPort cable (I have two different cables and both exhibit the exact same flickering issue).

Otherwise this is a great monitor the colors are so rich and deep - 98% DCI-P3. I haven't calibrated it yet but out of the box it is fantastic. The brightness on my S2721DGF is brighter but again this is subjective (how much brightness you require that your eyes can handle).

I don't use HDR to comment it again it's in a dark room so my eyes cannot handle the sun burn from the display at full brightness.

Zero ghosting from 144hz gaming and I have a 27" 4K as well but let me just say I do not see a damn difference between this nano IPS display @1440p vs a 27" 4K display. At least not from about 2ft distance away.

TEXT is ultra sharp on a Mac if you want to know.
