Curved 27"? F no.
Curved 21:9 34" maybe. Curved 16:9, even on a 32"? Just no.
This curve on non-ultrawide screens is an abomination. How are curved TVs working out for users? what a moronic fad. Same with the monitor spewing out RGB nonsense from the base & back. A tacky, seizure inducing 12yr old's laser show wet dream. so leet.

You might try 100+hz and not want to go back. But try a 32" and you dont want to go back to sub 30" ever again. Even if its 10000hz.
What im waiting for is a quality, non-curved, non-asus or acer, non-rgb, true 32" 16:9 1440p VA gysnc screen. Preferably Samsung. LG has one but its a 31.5" skimp out. It also has the RGB aids.

A 35" 2:1 screen size ratio. If only.....

G-Sync is not a pro. It's a tax for what can be used by any video card in the form of freesync.

That is crazy overpriced for a TN panel. Probably due to ROG branding + Gsync + the curve.

Why would anyone buy this instead of the cheaper 1440p 144hz IPS (AHVA) monitors?

I tested Acer and Asus, TN and IPS panels of the last gen 1440p 144hz oc to 165hz and with ULMB @ 120hz on the Predator blows all the rest out of the water. The colors and the motion on the IPS panel is better than the TN by far. Now if we could get IPS down to 2ms that would be amazing. oh btw I got my IPS Predator for $550 with literally an inch of so hard to see even in dark screen back light bleed probably one of the best I've seen even out of all the reviewers on youtube showing theirs. Not a single stuck or dead or bleached out pixel, it is almost perfect I'd say 99% I'd really love to see an IPS certified for 2ms. I think it is doable with our technology but will they release one.

$800 for a 27" TN panel? Pass.

I got my 3440x1440 curved Dell Alienware monitor on sale for $940. It sports an IPS panel, 120Hz refresh rate and Gsync. I don't really see the need for a curved screen at 27", unless it is literally one foot from your face.

Was going to wait for this monitor (when if ever released) but saw the reviews on Euro sites/YouTube prior to release in the U.S. and was not a "stellar-performer" especially when considering the MSRP.

Curve and ambient lighting not worth it when compared to other similar spec (superior, same or less priced) monitors... but to some it is.

Once you realize people how HORRID is to use a matter or semimatte screen with craptastic 1000:1 or less contrast ratio vs glossy high contrast VA or an OLED TV...

Wait ... I can't use a VESA monitor arm on this thing because of ambient lighting? GTFO.

And to me it looks as though light is going to be projected unevenly from the back because the light strip is not horizontal or centred.

Apart from that I always disliked their downward facing ambient lighting, at least with Acer it lights your desk nicely eg X34
