This is a damn good deal. Went ahead and pulled the trigger on this.

Yea managed to pick up an open box at 279.99 lol the sticker still says 479.99 what a deal!

Picked one of these up on the Black Friday sale. Should get here in a week. Had been eyeing this one for awhile.

 

Before this sale, I hadn’t seen it go below about 0 before. Dell MSRP is like 0 on this thing. (Not that it ever sold for that…) This is a good deal!

This is a fantastic monitor. Just don’t put it next to an IPS. I used to have it next to my predator IPS and it didn’t look great but by itself it is a great gaming monitor. great price.

This one also has a 50 SD rebate yesterday. Not sure if it’s still possible to get the rebate

That was thru Dell, which is back to 9.
I got this mid year for 0 at Best Buy. Very happy with it. If I could, I would buy a second one

I got this delivered Friday, paid 0, got the Samsung Pay Rewards 30% cash back deal. Ended up being just under 9 after the cash back and taxes. If you weren’t in the incredibly small group that got that amazing deal, this is still a great deal!

 

I am so impressed with the display, I am considering buying another one at 0 before tax. The colors are incredible for a TN panel. If you are on the fence, grab one and look up a color profile for the settings, you won’t be disappointed. The gsync is awesome if you have a gtx 1070 or better

 

I don’t think this monitor is worth it unless you have a Nvidea card, or plan to buy one soon. Otherwise you can probably grab something cheaper and IPS.

Need some advice. How does this compare to Alienware – AW2518H 25″ LED FHD GSync Monitor? I have the Alienware but it’s couple of inches smaller and 1080p. I’ll have the GTX 1070 shortly.
So jealous!!!!
I would grab this dell, I love playing on this thing, been eating it up all weekend.

 

It’s still a lot of money to spend, especially if you have to buy a card too. So take that into consideration. And you already have a decent monitor, maybe spend the money on a 2070 or a 1070ti and buy an even better monitor in the spring.

 

Edit: it also depends on the type of games you play, the higher refresh rate of the AW2518H is better for competive FPS games, but for casual single player games and esport games, the Dell 144Hz is more than capable, and I certainly enjoy the extra size and resolution.

Picked up this monitor earlier today! This is THE monitor to go for if you want 27″ 1440p Gsync. I experience ghosting when I turn on FAST mode in monitor settings. It was amazing playing Star Citizen with this but i’m really looking forward to Final Fantasy XIV because more screen space!

Thanks. I appreciate it.

I have very specific, arguably niche reasons for not giving this monitor 5 stars, but I will list all pros and cons to be helpful.
Pros:
-Indisputably excellent price for a monitor of the resolution and features (165 Hz OC, 1440p, G-Sync). As mentioned by other reviewers, the colors may appear washed out at first, but they can really pop with only a couple minutes of tinkering.
-Included cable was fully functional and supported 165 Hz with no issues.
Cons:
-Tangible issues with the response time and inverse ghosting. Skip to the end if the specific details aren’t important to you.
The monitor has two settings for Response Time (under submenu “Display”) accessible via the built-in menu through the bottom right buttons. The settings are Fast and Normal. The specs of the monitor boast 1 ms response time. I have, in no situation, been able to reproduce a 1 ms response time, regardless of game, program, or setting. The lowest response time I have been able to achieve, set at 165 Hz, Fast Response Time, and unlimited in-game rendering rate (which otherwise can render at 240+ Hz stable uncapped), was 3 ms.
Now, to be honest, a 2 ms discrepancy isn’t bad. However, there are a multitude of other minor issues that cascade from this. First, the “Fast” Response Time setting introduces very noticeable “inverse ghosting”, which is essentially color overcompensation on moving objects. Practically, any dark object moving across a light background will streak a very noticeable trail of whatever is the opposite of the object’s color. This became very noticeable to me in games with high contrast. The monitor boasts “no ghosting”, which is true, but this setting introduces the exact opposite issue: very noticeable “inverse ghosting”.
To circumvent this issue, I changed the “Fast” Response Time setting to “Normal”. This had two effects: it removed the inverse ghosting issue completely. However, it also increased the Response Time to 7 ms from 3 ms. So, I had to choose: either 2 ms slower response than advertised and visual issues, or 6 ms slower response than advertised with clean visuals.
To someone who doesn’t require absolutely exceptional response times for a monitor, this means absolutely nothing. However, if you’re looking for a monitor with a very high OC framerate cap and G-Sync for the purpose of quick-paced games such as FPS’s or overkill rhythm games, a 7 ms increase in input lag is just enough to be felt by the hand to be minutely disorienting, even with a powerful system and G-Sync enabled.
In summary: the Response Time is slower than advertised, at either 3 ms with noticeable visual issues or 7 ms without. If those 7 ms matter to you (which, to a grand majority of people, rationally will not), I believe other cheaper, ~$300 144 Hz monitors with true 1 ms or less response times (e.g. ASUS VG278HV) would be better suited for your purposes, as the 7 ms response time (at least in my opinion) feels tangibly worse and less responsive than not having G-Sync in the first place, though G-Sync makes the visuals themselves more attractive.
On the other hand, if you just want to watch a beautiful monitor run something visually pleasing at 165 Hz stable with no screen tearing, or if you want to play non-millisecond sensitive games with beautiful visuals, I can think of no better alternative at anywhere near this price range.
