Could you provide where you find that this monitor is G-sync compatible ? On Acer website it's written "Tearing Prevention Technology : AMD Free-Sync".

That being said, it would be a steal to find a 300$ 2560x1440 curved G-sync monitor.

Since when? COVID policy changes? 15 days if unopened.. or only allowed open return if it has a defect. Yikes. That's not going to be acceptable long term.
Always in search of a great deal....

edit: it might even just be that it looks bad on the loading image, but is fine after that? I really don't know.
even with a 800$ 2k screen, you may get a defective one out of the box .
curved screen are not risk free.

the information is not in acer or nvidia websites , it is discussed in forums and some Q&A websites
it is mentioned that it is g-sync compatible but not a perfect g-sync .

Beware that Canada Computers' policy on "defective" for dead pixels requires multiple dead pixels to justify a return
