Asus PG278Q gonna be hard to get?

#1ElChosenHombrePosted 8/18/2014 1:59:28 AM
Never bought a serious monitor for gaming, let alone one at launch but I am hoping to purchase a PG278Q when it releases. Is there a specific date? I've heard the 26th a few places but no idea if thats true.

Do monitor launches usually sell out right away? Is it going to be difficult to buy? I know the price is on the high side which may make less people buy?, but I've been saving for months now set on this particular monitor.

Is it possible this monitor will be for sale locally at stores too or just online?

Your guess is as good as mine, but if I had to guess, I would say it's unlikely that most brick-and-mortar stores will stock it (except the likes of Micro Center that are specialized computer stores) because it's a high-priced, small-audience, enthusiast item that won't move a lot of volume, given that it's an enthusiast item. I don't expect it'll be hard to get online, though.

Is that a TN panel?

Yes.

It's a TN panel but Asus claims it's a very high quality TN panel.
In any case there aren't many 27" 2560x1440 120 Hz G-Sync monitors out there.

Hmmm...I would still rather wait for an IPS panel though.

I just wanna know when it's going to release and where. If it's potentially so soon, I don't understand why they won't say.
