    2500 dollars.... fuck that. ill go with the alienware at 100-120hz for a 1/3 of the price. and upgrade to something like this in 4 years when this monitor is worth under a grand.

      Where is the benchmark, (AAA games), showing us how many fps/$ you are pissing down the drain each second on a 200hz monitor? :D

              I don't feel like the technology is quite there yet... seems like we have a decade or two to go before this kind of monitor is both affordable and capable enough for most people. The local dimming is kind of a joke to me. the quality of the HDR is also pretty weak. The 200hz and color gradient is also not ideal. It's a good monitor but for what it's accomplished, I'm not very impressed.

                              @Lina Morgana VA is great for watching movies due to high contrast, but for gaming it causes a large amount of motion blur and bleeding.

You even "plug" entertainingly. Thank you for your continued accurate assessments of what a good purchase looks like.

                                                My friend has the ASUS PG35Q and its an amazing monitor.
                                                First ...the fan is not noticeable.
                                                Second... the glow is far less when you sit right in fron of the monitor ( the camera angle from this video is from the side where the glow is much more visible and the overall picture is less colourful)
                                                The overal image is fanatstic. Shadow of the Tombraider looks amazing in the combination of 1000HDR + Ray Tracing + 144hz 10bit RGB

                                                  3rd. The response times suck which sucks for gaming. For a casual gamer OK but if you game on a more competetive level it is unusable

                                                Is it advantageous to have a monitor that's so big that you have to swivel your head to view the whole screen? Wouldn't that take away from fps games or any game requiring quick response?

If the price was around 1000$ it’d hurt me much less. I know its a gaming monitor. But the price! For 1440p, 35 inches screen. Come on.

He must be filthy rich from all the work that he's been building throughout the years, and yet his room/desk setup looks so basic and cheap. I bet he spends 80% of its time at work.

It's IPS but doesn't have HDR. when I build again next year I'm looking to get a second ultrawide. Will I be sacrificing anything by going with this one since it's VA instead of IPS?

                                                                                        I've seen the rog one and the Acer one, in Germany the Acer one is cheaper and has 1024 backlights in comparison to the asuses 512.

                                                                                        Would you recommend waiting or are there not that Man differences?
