I'd be happy to pay $1000 for the same thing with Gsync instead, 120Hz refresh rate and if it was properly calibrated from factory. It that so much to ask? What do yo guys think?

"this is one of the best HDR 4K monitors we've tested yet--especially given its roughly $700 asking price."

Score - 7/10.

The score doesn't seem to match the words - am I missing something here?
 

Unfortunately, you're likely going to need to pay double that for anything close any time soon. : D

4K, high refresh rate HDR displays with G-Sync are coming soon, and they're going to be very expensive. Keep in mind, that's only a 27" screen for $2000. And at 27", you'll probably have a hard time even distinguishing the difference between 1440p and 2160p while gaming, so it would probably make a lot more sense to get a screen with the more moderate resolution and get much higher frame rates instead, at a fraction of the cost. After all, what good are high refresh rates at 4K when even today's best graphics cards will struggle to hit 60fps at max settings in many games.

I completely agree with you. Unfortunately, reality won't be so kind. Acer plans to sell their 27-inch 4K HDR 120Hz panel for no less than $2000 :( I'm usually an early adopter of tech, but that price tag is just to steep for me. I had the patience to wait for the formerly very expensive Dell AW3418DW 3440 x 1440 IPS 120Hz G-Sync monitors to drop in price and bought two fo them for only $900/each through Best Buy (with 3-year warranties). I guess I can wait for these to come down in price once there is competition in the market place.

What's the point of a 4K freesync monitor? AMD does not have a 4K capable card and it wont have for a long time. 2 Vega 64 in crossfire is not viable.

Hi there, can you give me a personal feedback?

How good is this monitor to watch movies (normal 1080p (resized ofc) and 4k HDR?) the colours etc?

its really that better than TN panels for media? (if you had any)

And gaming at 60hz? i mean soft games ofc, my gtx 1070 can manage 60fps in 4k in trine and similar games nothing too heavy ofc.
