TBH ASUS stand looks better IMO. Just that the price is abit turn off since they always charge premium for ROG.

Way to expensive for me.

Hopefully when it released in Singapore next Jan it will be cheaper. Maybe by that time the XB270HU would have dropped price also.

Bro it will not drop so much. Range i guess from 1000 to 1100 include gst. The old model xb27 when launch in sg if i not wrong was 1099, after that at IT show some guys get it at 9xx range. I just worry later got dead pixel then gg have to sent back to amazon. I dont know if acer sg will accept their rma at their side. Jan still very long...

If the new XB271HU can get 1.1K locally I think is good lioz. From Amazon is cost much more and some more have the warranty issues to deal with like you said. Also if the price difference between the Acer and Asus one not alot, then might get the Asus one instead.

For me I still on a 1080p monitor and my Gfx card still in transit from Amazon so I can wait till Jan. About 2 months of 1080p gaming before moving to 1440p.

I saw online alot of QC issues with Asus PG278Q though. Not sure on the PG279Q.

I got the EVGA 980ti FTW. Used to have R9 290, now jumping to Green Team as I got a Nvidia Shield TV and want to use the GameStream function.
