I might get a G-Sync Gaming Monitor later but that would force me to sell my VE278Q that I already enjoy (except for the ''very small input lag'' while playing Ultra Street Fighter IV and some other games maybe.)

If that changes anything, I don't even use an NVIDIA GPU but I plan to get one around Boxing day or first quarter of 2015.

For G-Sync Gaming Monitor users, does it worth all what NVIDIA is bragging?

I heard from LinusTech that G-Sync is a total game changer. It's something that, for obvious reasons, can only be appreciated in person, but once you do, you cannot go back. I say just go in blind and go for it.
Isn't that right, Zach?

Tearing and sudden fps drops aren't the problems they used to be with the tech. Now you can turn off vsync and not worry about tearing nor going from 60 fps to 45. You will always be getting the best performance your gpu can achieve.

I think it is something that is most useful to someone with a gpu that only just manages their ideal framerate. Dropping from 60 to 55 fps will not be noticeable with Gsync while it can be quite jarring on a normal monitor. It also lets you go above the normal constraints. Now instead of locking it to 60 to avoid issues, you can unlock it and hit 72 the majority of the time with drops to 45 being hardly noticeable. Add in the reduction in input lag as you always get the fastest frame time possible which in turn mean you get the most up to date information from input devices, and its a real improvement.

I might get one myself eventually but only when one of my other monitors dies.

I still wonder which one I'll get between the BenQ XL2420G and the ROG Swift PG278Q then...

I got the new Asus PG278Q ROG Swift last week and I have to say I'm blown away. The monitor is absolutely superb. G-Sync really does work. No screen tearing and amazing 1440p 144hz gameplay as smooth as butter.

I'm no expert in monitors but I have no regrets buying this, it's taken my gaming experience to the next level. (I came from a fairly bog standard 1080p 60hz monitor)

Damn you make me want to go and get one! But I'm afraid the GPU will have to go first tho... might end up with a GTX 980 before throwing my cash to a G-Sync Gaming Monitor!

There's a Phillips gsync monitor coming out for a reasonable price. Can't justify dropping a grand on these right now. Really would like to see the tech though.

I just purchased the modded Asus VG248QE. Couldn't hold back any longer.
