    $400? Bit pricey for a 1080p monitor, I mean if G-sync works that well then maybe but definitely waiting for reviews before throwing money at something that may or may not work.

    Love my current Asus VS284H-P monitors but wish the GSync also worked with non-NVidia cards as it seems like a great idea.

    It's not that bad for 1080p and 144 Hz refresh rate, I would love to use this monitor instead of using v-sync on my 60 Hz monitor, I will be waiting till I get my next GPU upgrade though, sadly my GTX580 doesn't support G-Sync, maybe by then the price will have come down a little.
