On the official site it says:
3D mode: 2560 x 1440 (up to 120 Hz)

So this is the first monitor with G-Sync AND 3D Vision Support above 1080p resolution?


In Germany first shops list it for 800, still to pricey for my liking for a PC-Display but the specs really look tempting =)

No. G-Sync and 3D mode can't be enabled at the same time.

Price seems legit regarding specs imo. I can't afford it but once more of them kick in the market, it will be time to replace my old 24"

Mine will be with me next Tuesday. Can't wait. First of it's kind. 1400p, Gsync, ULMB mode, 3D (not that I care), first 8-bit panel, 1ms response.

Colours are meant to be as good as IPS but without the draw back of motion blur and slow response times.

The only downside (not for me as I'm a gamer) is the viewing angles but that does not affect me. I will be sitting in front of the damn thing.

It will have better colors than a good TN panel but not as good as IPS panels.

http://www.tftcentral.co.uk/reviews/...ift_pg278q.htm here is a review of the monitor.

Just out of curiosity, anyone know how many watts it pulls from the wall? Just like to get a figure on what to expect from these new monitors.

According to that above TFTCentral review the specification lists 90w although their measured usage was 51.6w

Quote:
We tested this ourselves and found that out of the box the screen used 51.6W at the default 100% brightness setting. Considering this is the maximum brightness setting the additional power draw for the specified 90.0W consumption must be based on having other things connected to USB. Once calibrated the screen reached 24.6W consumption. When the screen was on standby it used 0.5W of power. We have plotted these results below compared with other screens we have tested. The consumption is very comparable to other W-LED backlit displays, with wide gamut GB-r-LED units like the Dell U2713H using slightly more (comparing calibrated states).

Saw it and instantly knew I wanted to have one like that to replace my no-name 26" full HD monitor.... of which I don't even know the response time or input lag, and which only is able to go 59Hz on 1080p
Most likely will only make sense when I build my new PC later this year, I hope it gets some competition to make the price go down at least to 700

I'll let you test the **** out of this monitor and post the impressions before shoving my money into seller's hands.

I had a discussion with HonoredShadow about how expensive this monitor is, then bought new headphones. It looks like I'm a hypocrite But I bought these headphones after trying them out against others, and I'd rather like to do the same with such monitor.

Haha!! Swings and roundabouts. One thing is not so important to you and not really a thing you really want at that time and then something that is insignificant to others is a real must for you personally I get that!

Yes I should have said close too. I am happy to trade up my IPS if the colours are close and I'm as fussy as you lot!

Really love good colours but I need the motion handling and smoothness also. I think this monitor will be good enough tbh.

I love **** like this.

"HEY EVERYBODY! We've launched product, but you can't buy it for another 3+ weeks, and of course by saying buy we mean preorder. Oh and did we mention the supply is limited and being ferried from the other side of the world on a driftwood raft we built? Look forward to it!"

Jokes aside, the wait for this is becoming agonizing, but in a good way. I just hope I can get my hands on one.

Thanks for heads up on the PB278Q, just ordered mine from New Egg. I have an ASUS monitor that when I try to use displayport the mouse pointer disappears (not on top but underneath the layers), so I use the DVI connection and I have the mouse pointer on top, go figure. It's still an good monitor though (VG248QE).

From all the threads I've been reading there are a lot of people that agree with you on the monitor size. I personally wouldn't mind a 27" but I'm sure that ASUS will probably come out with a Swift Mini @ 24" but only 1080p res. Maybe by then G-Sync will be done on an ASIC and the price will drop.
