This was my first 144hz monitor purchased close to 3-4 months ago.

Funny enough, I wasn't aware of the whole Freesync vs Gsync debacle - and then they announced Gsync comptability!

In short, it is Gsync compatible.

The 1080 at 27" is something that's a little bigger than I was used to at first. It's my gaming monitor, not my secondary screen so not really an issue. I'll let you figure out if the 1440 is worth the extra 200-300$. ;)

Also, it is worth mentionning I get seldom Out of Range error requiring me to alt tab or close my monitor. There are solutions online, just have not find it recurring enough to implement.

Overall very happy with the monitor. This made me 144hz fanboy henceforth. Cheers
I bought 2 of these monitors for gaming and work, i do get the out of range sometimes on my gaming PC when exiting games (totally fine in game) and sometimes the screen goes black for a few seconds on my work laptop but think that is caused by the laptop dock. Using all inputs on both monitors and for the most part these monitors are great aside from what i've said already.

FreeSync works great with the RTX2060 and i have not noticed any screen tearing, colour is great IMO for a TN panel after tweaking it.

I don't use it for videos or movies, strictly work or gaming and for that these monitors are serving me well.

Did this model fail the test, or was it just not tested? Because Nvidia has tested less than 10% of the market.
They tested a large chunk of the market that takes advantage of GSync(144hz+, low response time etc), over 400 Freesync monitors that were proper candidates for solid compatibly within their proper variable refresh rate ranges(lowest hz on the lower end of the Gsync spectrum the better not something like 60-144hz and if you ever dip under 60 you'll get tearing) no random flicker etc
I don't think they mention the ones that fail.

A 27" monitor at 1080, isnt' that bad? (Based on what I learned on RFD here?)

Shouldn't it be at least 2k (1440?)
I have a 27" 1440p monitor as my main monitor and this as my secondary.

People like to say 27" is too large for 1080p, and it certainly was something I was worried about before buying it, but I find it perfectly fine. Is 1440p better? absolutely, but it's not like I notice larger pixels on screen or a huge drop off in quality like some claim.

I got the monitor on Friday and 144hz works perfectly fine on the HDMI cable they supplied because it's HDMI 2.0.

I replaced my 13-year old, on the fritz Ultrasharp that I was using as a secondary monitor and this is fantastic. I was worried because people kept saying TN panels are garbage, but as gehko said, it just needs some color calibration and it looks great.
Gsync wont work over hdmi you need a DP cable a better one or it will give errors

Ordered this one before I saw the thread. Debated on it being too big for the kids gaming needs, but figured we would take a chance.

I confirmed free returns shipping and no restock fees if it doesn't suit our needs.

edit: nevermind, I had an MPP coupon applied and this one was trying to stack rather than replace! Removed the MPP coupon and the 10%OFFMONITOR worked!
