    It has a sensible stand too, unlike it's much more expensive G-Sync / IPS cousin.

    This hits the spot for me.

    Like the looks, like the size and gtg of 4ms, resolution and QI charger is handy.

    Only thing I am unsure of is the freesync range of 48 if that's to high?

    Already decided to buy inow Amd upcoming hardware.

    My only concern is will it drive this monitor above 48hz for freesync with all bells and whistles. I still have my doubts

    A monitor-based USB hub is so convenient - why would emit it from a £750 monitor?!

    Damn. So close, yet so far.

    Pros:
    - Non-TN panel (wether it's VA or IPS is more or less moot to me as long as it's >90% sRGB, although VA's higher contrast is nice to have)
    - FreeSync
    - 1800R curvature
    - WQHD resolution

    But the cons kill it:
    - 48Hz low-end FreeSync range = no frame doubling. 8Hz lower, and you'd have had the necessary 2,5x range ...
    - No USB hub? Come on!
    - With the integrated charger in the stand, I also assume there's no VESA mount option.



    Also, I assume the "300:1 contrast ratio" in the text is a typo, and that 3000:1 is correct? Unless this is a TN laptop panel from the early 2000s?

    No HDR? Suppose it's not even possible since they're *still* using DP 1.2...

    I was thinking the same. If I were in the market for a new monitor, HDR would be on the list of must-haves, since I typically sit with the same monitor for a very long-time. (My Dell 2407WFP is currently about a decade old and still working flawlessly.)
