Same panel as the one above, but supporting 144Hz and Free-Sync. (Yes I know, Free-Sync is an AMD thing, but I valued the IPS aspect of this display over the G-Sync of the ROG Swift, and the new Swift that was IPS -and- G-Sync was not out yet, and probably would cost upwards of 8-900 dollars.)

Face-melting picture. I know this is a FreeSync monitor and I have a Nvidia card, but really, I wanted 1440p and 144z on an IPS or VA panel, and this is it in a package that was ~$200 less than a G-Sync. In the end, I couldn't justify spending much over $500, much less $750+. I am stepping up from a 32” 720p Samsung TV, so gaming on this has blown my socks off. I had no idea textures could look so rich.

Best freesync monitor, no dead pixels, no backlight bleed, no headache, awesome!

from completed build TDC (Tantalus Drive Core)

This is a great monitor. The viewing angles are very wide, the finish is very good and the colors are so vibrant and natural compared to my 23" TN panel. The menu navigation is intuitive and easy to memorize but I wish it had the option to cycle throught the custom settings with a single button press like my previous monitor. The Freesync Range is also high at a minimum of 35FPS. The unbelievable thing is that this monitor doesn't automatically detect input signals which is weird for a monitor in this price range. ASUS quality control is as shoddy as ever and I actually received non-functioning monitor first but then I returned it and got another one that appears to be working just fine so far

These monitors are beautiful (and, no s*** they should be, given the price). I chose these over the ROG Swift due to the inclusion of IPS (The IPS ROG Swift wasn't out yet when I got them, and I didn't want to pay 800$ each/300$ more just for G-Sync). 2 of them have a little bit of IPS glow when the display is black, but it doesn't bother me enough to do anything about it to be honest. 144Hz is bomb. If your friend tells you "60 Hz is good enough" or the classic "The eye can't see more then 30 FPS" statement, go tell him to (insert mean thing here). Recommend.

Probably the cheapest 27" IPS 144Hz monitor out there, and it's beautiful. FreeSync and Gsync models are differentiated with only a single letter in their model number and the price tag.

Looks good and works well. Has nice features and presets.

This is the nicest panel I have ever used, and my first experience with any resolution above 1080p. (Is this what the masterrace feels like?) Small amount of backlight bleed when the screen is dark, but it's to be expected from an IPS panel. I know I'm missing out on the FreeSync by using this monitor with an Nvidia card, but I am very happy with the price I found it for on Newegg.

It has one dead pixel but I'm not prepared to play the monitor roulette again

If you want 2k resolution on a IPS panel at 144Hz refresh rate and a 4ms response time then get this monitor! I would recommend.
