    Seems a bit steep for 1080p and no G-Sync.

    Game devs and artists spend ages getting the colour schemes and atmosphere just right for their games.. and then monitors like this come along and encourage you to trash it

    Disagree slightly on the pricing issue - remember it's RRP. Definitely disagree on G-Sync though - I've got AMD graphics so a G-Sync touting monitor would be not that useful. Roll on FreeSync!

    No my objections to this monitor are over the strange spec list. E.g
    1. Why the 90 degree rotation feature - not that usable surely on a 24" monitor, and how many gamers (to whom this monitor is targetted) need pivot capability?
    2. My favourite bug-bear - in built speakers. Is there any non-casual gamer who'd use these? I thought all the "l33t gam3rz" either had fancy multi-speaker setups or these fancy headets.
    Another gaming feature called 'Aimpoint' provides on-screen crosshairs to improve pointing gamer targeting accuracy.
    How does it know where you're aiming?

    it's not only the monitors that trash the colour schemes, often this is done by users running their hardware without any basic calibration so the end result is that they can't see all of the splendid work that's been done.
    Personally I use the Disney World of Wonder BluRay disc to do this, I think a spider is too expensive for a gaming monitor, especially when a decent device would cost more than the price of both my monitors put together.

    If you're using a 7970 it's no more compatible with FreeSync, when it eventually arrives, than an Nvidia card.

    Does that mean FreeSync is not tied down to the drivers? I don't fully understand FreeSync at the moment, but I guess that's partly down to no reviews being available, however I did think that there was a requirement for drivers to have a FreeSync mode in them in order to take advantage of the FreeSync features so if nVidia added this to their drivers then they might potentially miss out on G-Sync sales.

    Quite true in itself, but when (or given AMD's track record perhaps I should say "if"?) FreeSync arrives then it's a given that it'll support the then-current hardware, with support for "legacy" models - which the non-R9 stuff is even now - an unexpected bonus if delivered.

    No, for me at least, where FreeSync scores over G-Sync is that AMD have shouted loud and long about it being "freely licensable" - so if you've got the cash then you can get a license. NVidia - unless I've missed the announcement - are keeping G-Sync limited to their graphics cards while simultaneously signing up the monitor manufacturers.

    If that's not the case and NVidia are intending to offer G-Sync to Intel and AMD then I'l "shut my pie hole" and say no more. Although at the moment I'm more interested in seeing if Mantle delivers than some fancy pants sync technology.

    Doing it by eye is difficult because our eyes (or better our brain) interprete the colors in relation to the ambient light situation.

    To trustfuly calibrate you need a calibration unit. I do that with a Spyder and the HCFR freeware. Can only recommend to use this freeware with such a calibration puck.

    I could never go back to below a 120hz monitor , I can't imagine what technology will be like 10 years from now!
