Pre-order pricing spotted:

Austria - https://www.mediamarkt.at/de/product/_s ... 80855.html

27" Price: £549.95 = €500-€599 = $500-600

Not sure if I'm a big fan of the panel being VA.

Yeah I would really like to see some ufo tests done on this considering its VA. Maybe RLCSContender can abuse Amazon once more and grab this for testing lol

Credit to Jung Moon/jmoonb2000 over on reddit, who picked this up and did some handwave testing with their phone (albeit at 60 fps).

Not perfect, but it looks very impressive for a VA panel:

Thank you for the testing!
It actually doesn't look that bad, especially considering it's 60fps yeah. I'm going to be deciding between the 27" G7 and the Omen X 27 in the next two months. Just need to find a way to compare their ghosting, which is my main concern (as I do have some astigmatism).

I have small astigmatism too. How is that a concern for ghosting?

Not going to go into detail but that image should explain what I mean. My eyesight is horrendous.

This doesn't explain how eye with astigmatism perceives ghosting differently, if there is such thing.

It explains my own vision already adds some kind of ghosting by itself. Off-topic, nonetheless. Moving on
