G-sync 1440p 140+Hz IPS monitor on sale at Massdrop.....???
more_vert
All i see is freesync. Every monitor for sale on Massdrop. I think its time to have Good G-Sync monitor for sale on Massdrop. Any monitor 27inch 140+Hz 1440p IPS panels are 600+ dallars in stores. I TRUST Massdrop can do better and lots of gamers would suport them by buying hundreds if not thousands! What do you think? .........................................................................................

This thing is worth every penny, it's amazing. The panel is unfortunately not HDR but still everything looks crisp as it can be. Plus there are lighting effects on the bottom, super handy for when you're in the dark and needs to see, as I put a lot of things under my monitor. Zero regrets on buying this thing.

Anybody looking for a new 240hz 25" Alienware AW2518H monitor? This is the Gsync version of Alienwares extremely well made gaming monitor with 5 usb 3.0 ports, 1 DP, 1 HDMI. Adjustable height, swivel, and 180 degrees rotation. They are going for around $500 now after the 15% dell website discount. But I'm selling one BNIB for $330.

I don't see the point, for any competitive gamer would never use gsync or any such sync. With a quality monitor you literally don't get screen tearing anyway. So why introduce input lag that can be worse at times, for a feature that is heavily fixed by just buying a quality monitor. I don't even see the point in it for casual gamers. But I really don't see the point for anybody wanting equal footing in a competitive game.

Gsync will always be better than using Adaptive Sync. Gsync monitors are really affordable, honestly. You can pick up a 27" 1440p TN Panel from Dell for $330 pretty regularly on sale. I lucked out with a Viewsonic 27" 1440p G-Sync at a pawn shop for $200 flat.

Now that gsync is supported on any monitor it doesn’t really matter... although having a monitor the the gsync scaler would be nice

I got the MPG over MAG because of reviews and increased brightness density. Amazing how folks on forums can be if you don't mention that you don't have the latest mega rig. Ok, I have a 1050ti. It is not an 1080ti, and I know the 1050 is average. That will change to a 140 Hz card some time. I play only world of tanks and world of warships. I currently get 60-80 fps with max settings on every graphic setting. Step 1 know your needs, and work towards that end.

I keep my money for this gem, mate: https://pcmonitors.info/lg/lg-27gl850-160hz-wqhd-nano-ips-model-with-adaptive-sync/ Unfortunately it's "only" "G-sync compatible" (plus LFC, so it should work smooth even well below 48 fps), but all specs looks terrific.

I think the problem is Freesync is open source whereas G-Sync is proprietary and require royalties paid to Nvidia which is why their monitors are always 2 or 3 hundred dollars more expensive than Freesync counterparts. Even if there was a group deal, I highly doubt you'll get a GSync monitor at a Freesync price.

Less that it's open source and more that it's free as in beer. There's plenty of open sourced software and hardware that cost money to use and sell.

Both G-Sync and FreeSync are pretty much useless if you want to do high end gaming, which is warranted by such a quality of monitor.

I dont even think it’s a little bit better. In the end they both do the same thing.

No, they work differently, and when Nvidia are a part of making the monitor, you can count on a wider VRR range and best VRR there is rn, with FreeSync/New G-Sync, its up to the monitor maker and in general even so it is agreed that because of the fact that the scaler is built for G-sync, at least currently it looks better than freesync because of again wide VRR and better adjusting.

Well PG278QR is a TN panel and and in that case i would just get Dell S2716DG for $320 on sale or 399 regularly at Micro Center BRAND NEW. I cant believe Asus charge 599 for PG278QR TN and 599 for PG279Q witch is IPS. That’s just makes no sense. i would like IPS for my self and have been considering VA lately, only as a cheeper alternative and the only option that goes up to 32 inches.

I got a S2417DG (24 inch version of S2717DG) which super nice especially for the price but I have seen MSI VA 144hz 1440p monitors (that weren’t even released when I bought my monitor) which only have freesync (although you can use gsync with that now). In general the TN panel is ok and I think I’d prefer VA overall and would like to see more VA monitors.

Knowing the color banding issues full and well, I still paid full price for it, and while I wouldn't say I'm regretting it, I do agree that the color banding is atrocious and a problem with EVERY single panel they ship out.

I got one and sure it’s there but I still love it especially for the price, it really isn’t that noticeable, I even see movies on it once in a while, at least for me it isn’t bad at all

Gaming level laptops
Why don't we actually get massdrop to offer gaming level laptops for sale? I personally have the new HP Notebook with an AMD A8-7410 processor that has 6GB of RAM and a pretty impressive architecture. I can run Supreme Commander at it's highest settings, 80% load at about 45-60FPS. On the flipside though I've found that Space Engineers whilst being optimized recently to vastly improve framerate due to being able to skip atmos calculations now with the option to disable airtightness does suffer from extremely long load and compute times on this machine. I love this machine to death and while it isn't the level of machine I would be talking about offering, it's a good one just to use for an example. No, the ones I'd be looking at massdropping would be models with maybe 8-10 or even 12 GB of RAM and most likely high-end APUs or CPU/GPU combinations with nice specs across the board in order for people to at least get their hands on these machines and try them out to write reviews...

Console vs PC: Which should you buy?
[image] Setting the Stage The debate on which platform is best for gaming has been raging since the beginning of time....of gaming. The Rules of Debate Be nice. I've seen people get heated over this topic and that is not what I'm looking for here. This is more than a debate about what platform is "better." In some ways you can prove this on paper but in many others it remains entirely subjective. I'd really like to hear what you enjoy gaming on, and why. I'll Start... For me, I'm an avid enough gamer, with time really being the restricting factor when it comes to how much/many games I play. I also game on multiple platforms, both PC and XBOX. For me, gaming is all about the time online with family and friends. I move enough that I have lots of friends and family that live all over the place. I'm also not the guy that's going to call you up and ask how you are doing, even if you're my brother haha. I will however jump into a game of Battlefield on XBOX with the main...
