MSI Intros Oculux NXG251R G-Sync Gaming Monitor

MSI today introduced the Oculux NXG251R, an ultra-fast 24.5-inch gaming-grade monitor. If you can live with its Full HD (1920 x 1080 pixels) resolution and TN-film type panel, on offer is 240 Hz maximum refresh-rate, response times as low as 1 ms (GTG), and support for NVIDIA G-Sync technology. There are also RGB LED ornaments behind the monitor, which can be controlled via MSI Mystic Light software, which can work as an ambient light, or however you want them to. The monitor features thin top and side bezels, with a faux brushed-metal bottom bezel. Other vital display specs include 170°/160° H/V viewing angles, and 1000:1 static contrast ratio with DCR. Inputs include DisplayPort 1.2 (needed for G-Sync), and HDMI 1.4. A 3-port USB 3.1 hub makes for the rest of it. The company didn't reveal pricing.

Plus Gsync on 240hz display is completly useless! At 240hz you will never have tearing. Just play and be assured you won´t reach more than 240fps on most titles, while maintaining astonishing 4ms persistence (vs 7ms on 144hz and 16ms on 60hz)

AlienWare AW2518HF 240hz costs 266€ on Amazon right now, just saying!

With these specs a price of $350 + tax seemed too good not to buy from BestBuy. The item is backordered (says until 10 Dec) so we'll see if and when the order will be fulfilled. I'm skeptical now since the price is $499. I'm wondering if it was a mistake and they will want to wait me out at the cheaper price and fulfill $500 orders first. Ok, maybe I'm a cynic. Anyway... they're listed for sale here:

If it doesn't do ULMB, don't care. Not all G-Sync monitors do .... no Freesync monitors do
