On sale for 299$ at Monoprice on April 19th 2017.
So I got this for $225 + tax + s/h from the SPRUNG25 deal. AMA I guess. But here's a quick rundown.
Mounted on an Ergotech 320 Dual Arm as the primary monitor with a QNIX QX2710 @96hz on the side. Powered by a GTX 980 4GB.
144hz is smooth as expected. Apparently there's more motion blur than normal for a TN panel, but it hasn't really affected me when playing games.
Stand is flimsy - flimsier than the korean 1440p monitors. The screws thread into plastic, and the stand just tilts up and down. The VESA mount is shallow similar to the QNIX I have, so I just loaded up half of the mounting screw with washers and screwed it in. My QX2710 has been mounted like this for 2 years with no issues, so I don't expect to have any issues with this Monoprice monitor.
For a TN panel, the colors are pretty good. There's a noticeable difference in colors between the IPS QX2710 and the TN Monoprice. However, I'm pretty satisfied with it and I think that having them side-by-side is still quite feasible.
The menu buttons are pretty small and hard to click, but they work well enough. It does get a bit annoying whenever you go fullscreen at a different resolution since the monitor will display the current display information in a box in the middle of the screen for about 5-10s, so make sure to run your games in windowed borderless if you can.
Power supply was surprisingly decent. A FSP unit with UL listing instead of a cheap chinese fire hazard that I was expecting.
Haven't tested picture in picture, but input switching is simple enough. I connected my XPS 13 to the hdmi input and could easily switch between the inputs with the monitor controls.

Are you still satisfied with this model ? i'm checking the price on Monoprice everyday to get it the next time it goes for 299$.

Yep. So far so good. Motion blur hasn't really affected me when gaming and the colors are quite good. Just remember to pick up a vesa mount because the stock stand is g a r b a g e.
So did I waste my money on a Zowie XL2730? It was $100 more and I love the monitor, but is this about the same thing, for less?
Head up for some people. Right now (not sure how long it will last) But you can get this monitor for less than $250 on monoprice with code: SPRUNG25 if the code won't apply add a cheap cable and the code should apply. Site says 3/20 only so get ordering!

Weird. they must have did something then, because the code WAS working with the monitor.

They quickly added THAT specific monitor to the exclusions list for the coupon. I'm sad I didn't get in on the deal before they did that. :/
Does anyone know what LCD panel this uses? I currently have a BenQ XL2730Z and I'd consider going in for two of these if it is the same or a similar panel.

Even if using the exact same panel, firmware and calibration will be off. You'd need to properly calibrate with the right tools to get them close to matching.
What is the latency on this? 1ms?
AkumaKurono
Monoprice states 1ms, the box stastes 8ms.

Being the same or similar 1440p TN panel used in most of the 1440p 144hz TN panels, you should expect around 3ms at its optimal setting, and 1-2ms at its highest setting. That's response time.
In terms of latency/input lag, we'd need to get professional measurements to be certain.
Monoprice was selling this on their website yesterday for $299.99 (and has been for awhile). Strongly considered it. The price is now $429.99 on their website.
This is a great option for those looking for high refresh adaptive sync on a budget. It's cheaper than the 1080p XG2701. I'd have low expectations for color accuracy out of the box though.
