    Would've been more impressive if they also had a 34" ultrawide (with the same specs).

    Q: Is this Prismsync an alternative to Free/G Syncs?

    PrismSync gives you the power to coordinate multi-color lighting effects between all your SteelSeries Prism-enabled gear. Easily set unified lighting for your illuminated headset, mouse, RGB keyboard and QcK Prism.

    Seems to be an RGB LED thing.

    The monitors spec says Adaptive Sync, so it has FreeSync as well as prismsync.

    Time to take that coat and head for the door...

    Other than that, I agree the 'Q' model looks interesting. I wonder if it's going to be a (panel) lottery to get a proper one as seems usual for gaming monitors these days.
