So I had one of these but I returned it because of some screen issues that I will give a pass. I would really like to try this screen again but I have a few questions.
Can we be guaranteed fresh warranties? The one I recieved had actually expired under warranty already somehow.
And how long has Massdrop had these or when were they ordered?
Got all excited until I saw the resolution, dang. I want 1440p.

Just thought the same thing -- while swearing loudly, because I JUST got the Dell S2716DG... -- but then was reminded of why I never jumped on this...

24" is the ideal size for 1080. (For a monitor, anyway).
27" is the ideal size for 1440 (2k).

End of story.

I was thinking the exact same thing. If only this was a 2k monitor.
Yes
Why in the hell are we getting all of these "gaming" monitors that don't have 1ms response times?

I'll grant you this monitor is an odd fit as 27" 1080p monitor, most panel's with these specs's tend to be TN (gaming monitors, which could get your 1ms response time) or non gaming monitors. That said I understand the niche they are trying to fill as there are some people such as myself who cannot stand the poor viewing angles, contrast, and color reproduction of a TN panel. I've used High refresh TN, VA, and IPS I don't this the 1 - 4ms makes a difference especially in multiplayer games were latency, ping, is going to cause more delay than input lag. That said I'm not sold on 1080p monitor at 27" inches for gaming it's perfectly acceptable(to potentially great if high refresh rate is really your thing), but I use my monitor for both productivity and gaming, the pixel density and screen real estate is a deal breaker for me because I want a monitor suited for both. But for many people this offers an affordable g-sync monitor that rock's a Samsung VA panel, which should hypothetically have nice contrast and good color accuracy without all of the drawbacks of a TN panel, which I would say are generally loathed by a large portion of the gaming community.

Also a TN panel at 27" inches you really need to be cognizant that you remain in the sweet spot because the size alone is going to cause color/contrast deviation. Look at the Asus Rog Swift the PG27Q is generally considered to be the best all around gaming monitor which is the IPS variant, there is also a TN variant but is less popular and receives less praise. Granted when it comes to monitors with similar specs it largely comes to down personal appearance and what your eye prefers (assuming your computer is capable of driving the monitor properly)

Personally I use multiple monitors, one for gaming and one for productivity so I don't run into the issues of having drawbacks for certain things. I do understand where you're coming from though if you're trying to use a single monitor for multiple things. I think my biggest problem with this drop is that it is a pretty niche group, in my opinion, that would go for this monitor. Well I say that but I suppose there are some gamers out there who would go for this outside of that niche group, however, this really isn't the "gaming" type of monitor that most PC gamers are looking for. So why have it on MASSdrop?
Anyone in canada ordered this? Wondering what the final price might be once it crosses the boarder... also how is this shipped? Usps? Ups?
Sigh... "Lastly, when *you're* taking a break from your games..." There I fixed it.
Waiting for 34 inch monitors

Wait for the massdrop "vast" to come back, it's insane for the price compared to others on the market
Would rather have a non-curved 1440p version. Can't seem to find a decent deal on that anywhere.

Me neither, let me know if you find one.

For a while https://www.amazon.com/AOC-AG271QG-Gaming-Monitor-G-Sync/dp/B01G5JYMNA was at $550.
I hadn't yet built my PC and it had been that price for a while, so I figured there was no rush.

Then I built my PC and they upped the price and promptly sold out. I can't find a comparable monitor for a reasonable price now. They all seem to be ~$700.

It seems like all the 1440p 144hz "IPS" gsync monitors are based on 5 year old technology and have suffered from bad quality control issues from backlight bleed and more. Right now it seems like the manufacturing these monitors has either slowed or stopped, despite the fact that there is a huge demand and no new monitor line has taken up this niche.

If you don't need Gsync, Viotek's 27in 1440p 1440hz monitor is great. They produce MSI's monitors as well.
Bought this a week ago for $370... poop
Finally g-sync. Shame I already got one.... Sorry Massdrop
Considered it, looked up some reviews, and saw it's not a quality made monitor. What I saw in common from some reviews is some cloudiness around some edges.

I have a 1060 6GB which means 1080p for me, but seems I'm going to have to wait until GPU prices go down and upgrade both card and 2K monitor. Here's hoping AMD gets their stuff straight by then so I don't have to spend an extra $200 for a GSYNC monitor.

I think he means makes a competitive high end card
AMD makes freesync, exactly. GSYNC requires a proprietary chip in the monitor, which drives the price up. Freesync does not. The only problem is that AMD needs to make a better graphics card. Vega was bad for many reasons, so waiting for Navi might be a good idea, as you need a graphics card from AMD to use freesync.
