Hmm.. haven't had experience shipping from US directly to Singapore through PrimeNow so I can't comment on that.

What I have been using is EzBuy's Ship-for-me service, which lets you use their US warehouse. Basically, Amazon US will ship the item to the Ezbuy warehouse in US (Amazon shipping within US is normally free), and then you ship the item back from the warehouse to Singapore for a small fee.

Fees are pretty cheap for lighter items, would definitely recommend.

that's the problem, i tried looking at the device manager. it's not being stated as acer lcd.

under monitor, there's 2, both are stated as generic pnp monitor. i tried to look further into details, there's nothing stated as acer.

*updates* it's okay now, i manage to google with the more details and able to know which was my acer monitor

Could you give us a review? Im still considering either this or the AOC AG211QG which is @ $999 but gysync and 144mhz with IPS (AHVA) panel.

i tried google AOC AG211QG but no such model?

i think you are referring to AG271QG.

in terms of spec, AG271QG is better. higher refresh rate up to 165hz, but it doesn't make a difference between 144 and 165 as human eyes won't be able to see that much difference. like having a 200+ refresh rate monitor, there's no point as you only can see up to a certain extend.

has better ergonomics, more ports.

if you got the budget, of course get it. if u prefer lower budget, then go for acer which is selling around 636 now
