    For $899 I'll go down to the corner and get a couple of fence jumpers to act out my games! Pass.....

    FFS, PC monitors.

    Without doubt the most overpriced segment of PC gaming components, and that's saying something given the Nvidia cash grab on the Pascal cards.

    a 27' monitor should not cost more than $500, no matter what tech wizardry they include, end of story.

    Still no OLED and glossy screens :(

    I pass another grainy screen with poor IQ
    Dell and LG are coming soon with OLED displays anyway.

    $900. ROFLMAO.

    No, thanks.

    These days you put the word "gaming" even on turds and sell them as expensive luxury turds dipped in white chocolate.

    I find it ridiculous that people pay for this :)

    Meh... I can almost bet it uses the same AU Optronics panel as ASUS/Acer which is a hit/miss when it comes to backlight bleeding etc.

    Seriously, with such a price tag, these monitors should have a unbeatable quality, and they are far from it. :(

    Yeah, it's stupid. I went through multiple PG278Q's and two Acer XB270HU's to find one with minimal bleed. I don't really care how much they inflate the cost to cover the defective screens -- I want to know that when I'm buying a $600+ monitor it's fairly flawless.

    If they could do this but at something like $300-400, I'd take one :)

    People complain all the time, nothing new, move along. But on a serious note, here in EU it will cost 900€ for sure :D

    People keep buying them, so they have no reason to offer them at fair prices.

    Remember the cheap AOC g-sync monitor? Well, they sold like crazy and thus AOC almost doubled the price from what it's actually worth to what people want to pay for it.

    This trend is prevalent in the "gaming" sector.

    Personally I am hoping LG expands their wcg hdr oled TV lines to include 32/30" TV sets.
    Compared to the sale pricing their previous model OLEDs drop down to...
    ( 55" 4k sets comparitively with yearly model releases as an example )

    Than I could see a healthy 4k tv market reducing the cost if a 30 " oled tv market existed well below the 55" sets on sale. (Which are far below $4000)

    I could easily envision 30" hdr tv reaching sub $500 price bracket pretty quickly!

    In which case...
    I would easily snag 3 of them for a surround setup!

    With touted pixel densities, clarity, black levels, wide color gamut accuracy! And the contrast ratio of HDR linear bit depths! These are not yer daddy's HD tv sets!
    Could easily see us just saying no! To the milking abuse we are getting from current gaming releases if we could force the markets hand by going with the TV industries gigantic technology leap in fidelity.

    We would get all those rewards boosting our experience over our current fare To insulate us from the assured price gouging when monitor manufacturers release with the same tech!

    We would take a hit if TV have no path for advanced sync though.
    But with an active 3D tv I am hoping at least ulmb would be possible?
    And of course if the consumer market was smart/vocal enough the TV manufacturers including modern sync solutions would be rewarded with significant market share!

    It could happen!

    In which case...
    I would probably run those 3 tvs at 1440p a piece instead of trying to suffer SLI on my gtx 1080. ( bad enough I blinked and got FE )
