G-sync 1440p 140+Hz IPS monitor on sale at Massdrop.....???

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.

Are you still selling this?

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.
Feb 14, 2019
I dont even think it’s a little bit better. In the end they both do the same thing.
Feb 14, 2019
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.

yes please

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.
Jan 15, 2019
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

Completely surprised by the lack of blade diversity here on Drop...
I’ve been a collector of Blades since before my teens, and a retailer coming up on 15… or maybe 20 years. Drop has really been kind of an interesting experience for me, because I do occasionally get to see some unusual tech and sometimes EDC items that otherwise I might not have been aware of. And maybe it’s because I have a deep love of cutlery and bladed weapons, but I find myself trolling through the site looking at it what’s available; and it’s just it’s pretty much the same. And the bladed community here is just always confused me.. every single knife is about the same, they’re almost all drop points and although the handle materials change and brands change.. it’s really just the same knife over and over and over again... occasionally you’ll see a tanto or a slight variant; but rarely… and almost never a serrated blade. And I’m just deeply amazed at this diversion of serrated blades. And I’m just surprised there isn’t more of a request for diversity here.... and I...

Can we get Sony E-Mount or other mirrorless camera options please..
Would be nice to see some Sony E mount full frame cameras on here. I currently shoot with a A99 and they killed the lense path for better or more option lenses and now is all E-Mount. 🤔

There Are Pandas, and Then There Are Pandas.
And this isn't either of them! The Pandas we're talking about here, are watches, not bears. And what got me thinking about them (again) was a link posted this morning by @cm.rook who pointed a few of us to the very attractive (and not terribly priced) Yema "Rallygraph" Panda which, in it's most traditional arrangement, looks like the one on the left, but can also be had in the version on the right: The model on the left is a true Panda, while the model on the right is called a reverse Panda. The reason for that distinction is clear--Panda bears, only come in the first arrangement. Now at this point, everyone should be thinking about the most well-know Panda, The Rolex Panda, which is actually a Daytona, and among Rolex Daytonas, the most famous of which is the Paul Newman Daytona, which was famous first, because it was Paul's, and second because it sold at auction for $17.8 million (US Dollars). The story of that auction is well-known so I'll only...
