My current monitor hasn't exactly left the best taste in my mouth but it seems Asus has stepped up their game since the release of my monitor.

Which monitor are you currently using?

XG2703-GS.

Also, I would not consider 1080p 240Hz IPS as useful to wait for. 1440p is the current sweet spot resolution, and it looks very good in games. The whole 240Hz thing is, IMO, a complete waste of time unless you're an eSports person who doesn't play anything else than 240FPS games.

Also note that you always have viewing angle issues. Even if you're sitting straight in front of the monitor, you have viewing angle issues, because anything else than the center of the screen is viewed at an angle. For example, on a TN panel, anything that moves over the screen vertically changes colors as it moves.

The pcmonitors.info video review of the IPS I use has a demonstration in it about this issue, and talks a bit about the pros and cons of IPS vs the pros and cons of TN:

Yeah, you're probably right. In my opinion, 1080p probably has a few years left of relevance at legitimate options to buy, I could be totally wrong about that though.

I want to wait for the ROG Swift PG279QZ, props to you for mentioning that, I'm hoping it's going to be released this month for the holidays and not early next year.

What's the best way to get notification on release dates for monitors??

Would love to see a review for Asus vg279q.
If performance is good, it would be a very good option for gaming.
27'' 1080p is fine for games and movies.
I would like to have one but in 24 or 25'' though.

One thing I learned very quickly, is that the CPU is also a fairly significant bottleneck in terms of achieving 240fps in games. You can use a modest CPU (1st gen ryzen, etc) and fairly easily achieve 120-165fps in modern titles, but nearly doubling that to 240 requires a lot more single core horsepower, and a graphics card to match.

1440p @ 120~180hz is my preferred sweetspot. 1080p is a bit on the low end for resolution, 4k is super overkill for a 24-30" screen that you're sitting 1-2ft away from, and 240hz would be hard on the wallet for anything but older esports titles.

Still quite happy with my PG279Q.
