    Good specs. I guess if you want a high refresh rate the price is also very reasonable.

    That 27" is about what my current 144Hz 1440 one cost when new. For 240Hz that's probably the going rate, these days. Not sure you really need curvature on a 27" though...

    I used to be of the same opinion, but I bought a 27" 16:9 with 1800mm rad and I think it's a nice addition. Mostly I don't notice it, but when I go back to a flat screen I notice the difference - it does help with immersion (albeit a small amount).

    I just hope these monitors have Freesync working on them as their CHG70 (forerunners and poster child of HDR and freesync) monitor's Freesync is unusable under 90hz due to heavy purple ghosting caused by static overdrive settings (unchangable or fixable via the OSD or latest firmware).

    IIRC that monitor (same as mine) worked fine, even had Freesync 2 support until they broke it with a firmware update and never bothered fixing it. Samsung don't do long term support. A lot of buyers were pissed about this.

    I'm happy enough with mine, but the HDR is 100% a gimmick. Would likely have been better off with the LG equivalent IPS monitor.

    Nice, going in the right direction but not yet there.

    I tried a couple of different ultrawide ones with curvature. 30-something inches, but even at that size it barely made a difference to me.
