    No way at 4k a gpu can be overkill, specially now that ray tracing is approaching. At 4k with raytracing you cantc even go at 30fps, so really no point in having 144hz.

    Higher Hertz is a marketing gimmick for people who believe to be pro ganer

    Shame on you for being an uninformed consumer.

    Belittling what other people are buying just to reinforce your own purchase is super petty. Everybody here is gonna have their own "thing" that is "the single most important thing they can't live without" on a monitor.

    some years ago there was one hero, Denis from prad.de,
    in that years this was a forum where you can talk about monitors.
    now you can only repeat what other people says... GOATS!

    ...perhaps your 'knowledge' is outdated?

    There you go again, talkin out your ass an blanket judging products that you have zero experience with. I swear, you are the Cliff Clavin of the [H]

    I owned the latest 43" 4k120 mango i20 for exactly 12 days and it is big, fast an glorious with very low input latency. However, I had a 14 day return window (and almost kept it for work productivity), but sitting next to my X27 there was no contest.

    The X27 may be smaller but it DESTROYS the larger Mango on color accuracy, contrast, HDR, Gsync, etc, etc.
    Looking at the Mango felt like I was wasting my life when I could be gazing at the heavenly X27.

    So like I said, the Mango is Big, Fast and Cheap....perfect for you, what are you doing here still?

    It's more expensive than $120.

    I finally had the chance to check out this display at a store, albeit only on the desktop and running Heaven benchmark on an underpowered GPU so did not get to experience high refresh rate goodness.

    It's a good looking display for sure, but I did not feel the 4K resolution is worth it over 1440p at this screen size. I will wait for the 32" model.

    I already have a HDR 4K TV and a 1440p 144 Hz display so seeing those features was not important for me, I mostly wanted to see if the higher resolution would be a big improvement over 1440p and IMO it was diminishing returns at this size.

    I generally agree - I wish for 27'' they would have just gone with 1440p as it isn't a huge boost in visual quality for the size, and the performance hit is huge.

    That being said, there is generally no reason to get this panel if you aren't interested in HDR - And having 120hz 8 bit RGB / 98hz 10bit RGB w/ HDR is outstanding. If you don't care about HDR there isn't much reason to get the panel, but at the same time if you're evaluating this panel and not looking at HDR content to evaluate it you aren't doing it justice. It would be like evaluating a 720p HDTV when that was the latest technology using a VHS tape.

    I am old but I can see the difference in 60 and 144. It is much more fluid. My son gave me a Benq 1080p 144hz and there is a difference. So I am for higher hz!

    I don't want to be a basher, this monitor is surely an interesting one but how to manage the wide gamut on this monitor?
    I am comparing my EIZO S2433W wide gamut calibrated with a colorimeter with the Acer XB271HK standard gamut
    and most of the software that are not managed, youtube, games ecc looks so off in colors on the wide gamut monitor.

    How you manage the wide gamut on these monitors?

    Maybe it's Win10 magic, but I did not notice wide gamut like when I used my NEC3090WUXi with Win7. I will have to double check.

    There is no magic in windwis that can automatically correct the over saturation of a wide gamut panel.

    Just received the X27. In one scenario (navy windows desktop background + white right click menu), edges of the menu are blue. Causing the menu to refresh (repeatedly hovering over and away from menu items, clicking through menu items) removes the blue. Is this a hardware or software issue? Thanks.
