    Interesting monitor for the plebs. If I recall correctly there are few or near to none FHD+HDR monitors. That's kinda unique. Fast IPS (not unworthy TN), HDR enabled and low resolution to push higher frames. It will sell like hotcakes if priced properly.

    The parent(s) just need to say Tuf. Pun intended.

    I've already got my 60 Hz 4K monitor with very accurate sRGB colors, thank you. Call me back then there is a 50" 8K montor with accurate Rec.2020 colors and 240 Hz refresh rate.

    In fact, omit that refresh rate requirement entirely - just call me back when there is a 50" 8K monitor with accurate Rec.2020 colors and it doesn't run for $3000.

    My 27" Asus is 165 hz and that's plenty ;)

    Indeed. Unless this monitor does 3D so we get 140 hz per eye, this is an obvious waste of bandwidth.

    So... it's not $123. I don't know how the author even got that number but it's Chinese Yuan, which right now is $528 USD.

    1080 lines on a 27-inch monitor seems like very low pixel density to me. I don't think I would want this one.

    It should be quite fine if it provides good image quality, colors accuracy and truly achievable 280hz. Its PPI is exactly equal to the smallest OLED 4K models TVs on the market at the moment as they are 55inches and I never heard complaints there ever.

    Wrong. You don't use a 55'' TV at the same distance as you use a 27'' monitor.

    27'' should be 4k...

    27'' and 1080p will look like crap, pixels everywhere.

    If it does 280hz there are chances it does just that. Colors will likely be a secondary feature.

    I would be happy with a 144hz to set to 100 or 120 depending how much my ryzen 2000 can push.

    I guess it's because 1080p @ 27" sucks that much that I have 5 of them.

    I have one myself....and unless I'm actually trying to see the individual pixels, they're completely unnoticeable.....

    @warlord
    for gaming only at +3ft? sure
    as a desktop screen used below that distance including office/surfing? nope.
    im 50 and dont have perfect eye sight anymore, and i can see pixels even start to see them below 2ft on my 32@1440p.

    anyone saying it is, please look up screen res for common phones/tablets, they usually are at least 720p for 6in (244 ppi).

    I had a 27" 1080 monitor for a couple years and it was fine in motion. I only saw pixels when I was sitting idle and looking for them. If speed is your top priority, this is probably nicer than some of the other fast monitors out there. Most of them are the same size and res, but TN.

    Probably neither of you have ever played on a proper 4k 27'' screen... The difference is HUGE.

    Even my 40'' 4k tv has a much better pixel density.
