    Has anyone seen any additional information on pricing/availability of the XB270HU? (This is the Acer 27" Gsync IPS 144Hz 1440P).

    I've been searching and searching and can't find much on my own...but it's getting towards the beginning of march which is when this was advertised as being released...so I'm getting increasingly curious to know more

    Looking foward to this monitor as well, if it keeps under 800 I may end up buying it before year's end.

    Only news that I'm aware of, is that it's going into mass production sometime this month for a March-April release. If the price range is around $800, I'll be buying one.

    Yeah, I'm selling my Swift and getting this. I hate the Swift more than any product I've ever owned.

    I guess thats the end of the line for the swift, its sales will drop off like a rock.

    Price is official. $799.99 in the USA.

    I'll assume in canada it's $899 or $949. Both of which are very high...but both of which will probably be reasonable enough for me to afford.

    I've made a thread (see here) in November about this screen, but most likely search function was broken ;)

    Also contains the tft central review and pricing in Europa, as far as available yet. Three of four preorder listings have vanished, so there only remains overclockersUK with a horrible price of over 900€ / £689.99.

    acer's US website has the MSRP listed from themselves at 799.99 so that's pretty reliable.

    Europeans often get the short end of the pricing stick though (but the long end of the availability stick to make up for it!!)

    It doesn't have better response times than the ROG Swift. The Swift can enable ULMB at 120Hz, while the XB270HU can do up to 100Hz because of slightly slower response times.

    The XB270HU does sound all-around superior than the ROG Swift, though, based on that review.

    Well, to be honest, I have not experienced that. Hardware often is available later than in the US / Canada, and certainly it's more expensive than in the US. I don't really see what Europe might have an advantage over, but we can't change it anyway. I won't take home computer hardware when I go to Canada this summer :D


    You can't use Gsync and ULMB at the same time anyway. In your case, using an AMD gpu, you might still go better with the Swift due to ULMB differences. Yet again, I'm still waiting for the first consumer reports on it, if there's a widespread dead pixel problem, or backlight bleed.... you get what I mean.

    @fantaskarsef: Availability comment comes mostly for INITIAL availability of products since often asian countries supply europe through Air freight whicch is of course much quicker than the cargo ships that sail to north america

    In the case of the swift for example, europe had stock 2-3 weeks before north america

    No TN for me my man. The Swift is far too expensive for what it offers. I'd go so far as to label it a pure ripoff. Granted, gaming experience and all that, but you do eventually get a TN panel with QA issues ASUS aren't willing to admit to, if you get unlucky (which seems to be most of the time).

    Well, are you certain of that? I wouldn't bet to name it a general tbh, but I seldomly am waiting for initial releases, I have to admit.


    I absolutely agree, that's why I'm hesitant to get that Acer screen... I've personally never been interested in a special screen before, and to me the Swift was a shock of lacking QA, and a price tag not matching the quality (not the specs) you'd excpect for the price you pay.
