    Lot of marketing drivel, little substance, and late to the market. Will be interesting how it compares to the Asus, once Reviews come up. Pricing will also be interesting.

    Also, too small for my personal taste, as many got used to their ips panel, I got used to 26"+ screen size

    ASUS have released 2 monitors, AOC have released their model BenQ has now released theirs.

    So yeah its not really late but certainly behind.

    Above are out of stock now but released. I bought the Swift and personally I am f**king loving it.

    And for those who are interested in modding their current ASUS monitor

    This is available for a painful pricetag.

    For those late guys. You likely came late to this world.
    You are lucky that there is no thing like late in market, since every technology you use today came later than previous which it was based on.
    Having last thing with additional features is better than having 1st prototype with its quirks or which lacks some features.

    Looks good, but i have currently a 24" monitor and if i have to buy me a new one it'll be at least 27".
    I got so much used to my 24", that now it seems small to me. There's no chance in hell i'll buy another 24".
    Plus, with the 4k monitors coming out, 27" at least is a must.

    IDK I'd still rather have a 24" for competitive gaming to be honest, although most newer gaming monitors are capable of scaling down so it's not that big of a deal.

    Agree, in competitive fps gaming none would stand chance on 32" and bigger screen, our full focus area is as small as 8" looked from 80cm.
    remaining area has for our brain lower and lower processing fidelity.

    24" is already at limit. Bigger screen is nicer for slow pace gaming, exploration of environment, but for that purpose one can get VR.

    I was thinking about 4k for working purposes, but not for gaming.
    1440p @144Hz is acceptable for gaming as it can be driven by today's HW, but 27" and bigger are not best part of equation for my fps gaming.

    Thank god for my big desk, where i can push large monitor several centimeters back. A big and solid desk was my priority, before i bought my first computer.
