    Does the stand really need to have RGB lighting?

    If anything like their phone or mice, then I am staying well away from this thing. Who knows if they will want you to install proprietary software to harvest data +/- bitcoin for the monitor to work too (prob via the whole chroma setup)

    Must be cool to hate razer atm i guess XD

    But in all seriousness it seems like an alright monitor that least from the photo looks bezel-less which is a nice touch... too expensive for what it is without Gsync/freesync or even HDR (guess 420 nits is kinda on the low end of HDR) not really my style but on paper it seems good, if a bit of razer tax thrown in sadly $150-200 off would make this very very sweet specially if you do 2/3 monitor with almost no bezel

    No G-sync for 700$? Their slogan should be "Razer - You want to pay much more".

    They dont have the best record for quality. I bought the $100 razer kraken headset and it didnt even last a year. The right side stopped working and it was well taken care of, Never dropped.

    I've got the Razer Blackwidow chroma, and I dropped an elite controller onto it form about 1m/3ft up and it cracked the base but the keyboard works completely as new.

    Would be interesting to know if it will suffer from IPS glow or not...

    This looks awesome. I've been waiting for the right gaming monitor to get but looks like I just found it. Cant wait to order one! Unless You guys want to help out a college student with one to test out for academic purposes of course.
