Samsung 27" LED LCD VA Curved Gaming Monitor 1440p 144hz Vesa

Deal Link:
Price:
329.99
Ticks all the boxes for me. 1440p, 144hz, vesa, Freesync, 4ms-5ms response rate, brightness 300. comes to $372.89 after ON tax.
Is it lowest price ever? I'm not sure.
NOT IPS could be a deal breaker for some.
Anybody with actually experience with this one to chime in?

EDIT: questionable over Freesync? can anyone tell for sure?
EDIT2: per this kind owner. Freesync is not there but super easy to add
EDIT3: per this user. G-sync can be added as well.
EDIT4: just received mine from Walmart. even though Staples cancelled my ordered. Walmart delivered super fast. ran CRU and added Freesync successfully

No support for freesync/gsync. Which can be a major deal breaker for a gaming monitor.

Freesync is supposedly built in to HDMI and DP standard. descriptions for this monitor seem to contradict over it so I guess only 1 way to find out once I get it. Staples says ETA Aug 20th-25th.

I myself already have a 4k 32" and find that my eyes can't see the whole screen while gaming hence the 27". and I can't do any less than 1440p at 27. 1440p at 32" is probably the mininum too as that's the same PPI as 1080p at 24".

I read online there is no FreeSync compatibility though?

Wondering if it's worth getting this monitor or keeping the ViewSonic VX3268-2KPC-MHD. Not a fan of 32 inch

Good price, this is the low end model though without the quantum dot tech. It's probably decent, I have the chg70 version of this and it's amazing, but double the cost.

That's right - as per their specs.

I'm also trying to decide between this and the Viewsonic..
So far the few differences I've found have been that

Viewsonic:
1x 3.5MM AUDIO OUT
2x HDMI 2.0 IN
1x DISPLAY PORT
?? USB Ports (some image shows another adapter with usb ports.. but not sure if it comes with the monitor)


Samsung:

Don't forget true 8 bit color for this monitor while the Viewsonic is 6 bit + FRC.

I own this monitor, I picked it up at $309 last year (open box when it was on sale for $349.99) . It does NOT have Freesync. However, you can use CRU to add Freesync extremely easily, and it works flawlessly (I've had Freesync on since the second day I owned it, works great). For the price, I can't complain I love this monitor. Yes the panel is VA but it's good enough for me. I game on it daily, and its a good performer. Some tips: HDMI 2 or DP must be used for 144Hz, if you want to add Freesync via HDMI again do it over HDMI 2. You cannot add Freesync over DP.

Hows the text clarity on it?

Also is the ghosting really bad on dark places? I had a 144 hz 1080p samsung VA awhile back. The ghosting was terrible in dark place to the point is unplayble. Every time you move there will be a purple shadow.
