    Could be that the crosshair isn't centered in the game. I think I read in a review that the crosshair can be adjusted some via the OSD.

    Yes, i personally can be other than what reasons i could be there is all so my Track IR that requires head moment.

    There is billions of people of course they going to sell, and anyway as i all so said good on those buying it as it will make it cheaper later on at more reasonable pricing.

    We all just have different requirements as it be really boring if we all wanted the same now huh.

    No, i've made a screenshot and counted pixels and the ingame crosshairs were ok. Same number of pixels on both sides. But the on-screen one is shifted to one side a bit.

    Well, i can move my head from one edge to another (at 90° angle to the screen) and colors hardly change. Certainly not enough to ever notice during intense gaming or even when calmly staring at a RTS game where not much is happening). There is no way you'd ever move your head around more, because that would be just straight awkward during any kind of gaming. Just rotating my head does nothing to colors.

    HEHE i guess you never owned a TIR, it depends as if you set it up really sentive over time you will give your self a bad neck as you would have to keep your head so still plus the fact it make it unrealistic by doing so.

    It was another reason i went with a 40" screen never mind making all my games so much more immersive

    I've actually tried playing with a 42" Philips. I agree with immersion as you feel like you're actually in the game (basically at less than 1m all i could see was in-game image), but not at 1080p. 4K is a must then, because the image looked really bad. But at 4K, you need dual cards to get half playable framerate. Which is just too expensive for me. I'm sticking with my rule of always having just 1 card.

    I have a TrackIR and have zero problem with color shift when using it on my TN monitor.


    Also glad to see it at Frys already. I know where I'm going soon :)
    and regards to price. I would be nice if it wasn't over $600.
    With seeing how well this monitor is doing I'm sure we will see another version next year and it will probably have HDMI 2.0

    nVidia's involved. That's enough to justify the price and overlook any shortcomings for some.

    We're about 3 years away from a 4K G-Sync panel at a reasonable price and a single GPU capable of driving it imo. Assuming 4K does catch on. This is a tech enthusiast site so there are members here with a 4K panel but I don't know anyone personally that has a 4K panel or any interest in it. Most people that I've mentioned it to haven't even heard of it.

    I don't think we're that far. There are already sub-$1,000 4k TN panels. I'd say the true next generation we'll see cards able to drive 4K. Maybe not 60FPS. Besides, by then Freesync will actually be on monitors. Then it will be seen whether Gsync's improvement over it will be worth the extra cost, or if it'll become the next PhysX. Something Nvidia subsidizes companies to add to their monitors.

    I'm not to worried about single gpu being able to drive it. I have nothing against multi gpu setups.

    So I checked at newegg for stock early today and someone must have canceled his order because I was able to get one Swift in my shopping cart, I pulled the trigger, should be getting mine in a couple of days :p

    Can't wait to actually try G-sync in person and finally give my Titans a workout at 144Hz and 1440p, I am still interested in the Acer 4K monitor and might get one once it's released, will let you guys know how they compare if I get the chance ;)
