Nice! Hopefully our monitors will come without defects.. Thinking of spray-painting the blue parts of the monitor stand to fit with my black theme haha.

i also suggest getting vespa support, cause the stand is quite low actually, unless yr table has a mini stand table to put monitor then the height should be fine.

Hmm, that means the monitor is not height-adjustable?

only can adjust the angle either face up or down
that's why is vespa compatibility.

Haha yeah I think I missed that part out. Kind of assumed it was height adjustable. Doesn't really matter though, am going to get a VIVO stand to reduce clutter on the table anyway.

i'm not sure whether do i need display port in order to make use of the freesync?

using this monitor Nitro VG271U P
Integrated with AMD FreeSync™ Technology

it seems that i need display port instead of using HDMI which will bring out the gsync/freesync for nvidia GPU.

but it seems display port cable very expensive...i check ugreen around 70 to 80+.

Yup you'll need displayport to use VESA's adaptive sync which enables you to use gsync on NVIDIA GPUs.

Nothing against those imported china brands like UGREEN but personally not a big fan them. Display port cables shouldn't cost so much though. A good quality display port cable should be one that is version 1.2 or higher such as this one: Cable Matters DisplayPort Cable

I don't know.. Seems like you have to pay a premium for those specs as they throw in additional features and the branding of the monitor as the "World's 1st tactical monitor" haha..

For the price, I think the Acer monitor is definitely hard to beat.
