newegg is selling the vg271u. wise to get it from newegg?
Newegg total price inclusive of gst + shipping is $560 and no local warranty. Might as well buy from qoo10 using coupons which might end up being cheaper and you get 3 years local warranty on top.

The Gsync model is higher cost primarily from the Intel Altera Arria V series FPGA aka gsync module.

Not in bulk around a thousand.

predator is using au optronics panel

nitro is using innolux

auo last time no competition, low demand, so sell at premium + branding nonsense

innolux newer tech, but appears to have bad delay

anyway they're only starting to ramp up production of 27" 1440p panels this year. so it's still going to be expensive
