Yeah, been enjoying my dual XB270HU setup for months. Other than speakers and a themed stand are there any other difference? Not sure it's worth the $50-100 markup over the 270HU.

I can actually understand having just DisplayPort. G-Sync only works over DP. If you don't use the sync function, then just get the cheaper model without it.

Yea i agree regarding the requirements of sync and dp, i have a 270hu for myself. I meant my comment more so on behalf of people i've suggested monitors to whom are PC gamers but would like to use their console on it as well.

That's one of probably few other reasons i would see multiple connections as being useful.

Good point, but I still don't feel that justifies a $90 mark up over the 270hu. It would be more enticing if it had a VGA input. It's the one thing I lost when I upgraded to the 270hu, now I don't have any place to plug in my modded dreamcast : (.

I also would love to see 4k at 120hz, but unfortunately this isn't possible with current technology. With all of the video connector standards currently out (HDMI 2.0 and the new DisplayPort), the bandwidth they can handle is below the bandwidth of 4k at 120hz. It will be a couple years before the new standards can support the bandwidth.

One question:

XB271HU will do 2560x1440p at 165 hz

XB271HK wil do 3840x2160p at 60 hz (75hz?)
Is it true it has 144 hz at 2560x1440P?
