No sign of the pg259qnR or any other version with the Reflex latency analyzer. They said November but nothing yet, not even an announcement.

Seems really popular or the stock is just crap. Amazon.com and .ca didn't get any in yet, Bhphotovideo didn't get either

I *finally* received my PG259QN but couldn't land on a color profile / setup I liked last night.

Also, I don't know WHY but things seem a little softer than my LG 240hz. I wonder if there was any sharpening happening on the LG.
I'll have to play around with it today!

Did we come to a conclusion on the general recommended settings? (Other than keeping Overdrive set to normal)

Also, is there a performance difference between Displayport 1.4 and HDMI 2.0 ? I'm not sure if they are 100% equivalent or if there's an advantage to using one over the other.

They didn't release that yet. All 4 monitors with the Reflex Latency Analyzer were promised for November and none of them have a precise date yet. It's clear that this some kind of NDA from NVIDIA, which kind of sucks.

Nvidia teases incredible products in their presentation, and unfortunately, many weeks later, we still unable to get your hand into it. It's frustrating. RTX 3080 out of stock and the 360Hz reflex monitors didn't even have a release date.

I just received my PG259GN monitor and I feel that the digital vibrance isn't nearly up to par. Is this an issue? I have it turned all the way up in my NVIDIA control panel and it doesn't come close to the vibrance of the monitor I am replacing, the VG259Q, which is far more vivid. Here is my color calibration report:

My Gray's are testing a Delta E of way over 2, close to 3, which seems pretty erratic.

Thanks for any help you can give me.

And now I have a stuck red pixel in the middle of the screen!! I'm really not having a good experience with this monitor. Currently running stuckpixel software to try to fix it (it's been running for 5+ minutes and it's still stuck)

At this point, I'm thinking of returning the monitor that I've been trying to get for 2 months.

Would be great if any owner with previous monitor of vg259qm or vg279qm (IPS 280hz) will write their experience/feeling with 360hz model.

Also keep tuned for my upcoming November article where I now feel 360Hz now requires a 2000 Hz mouse pollrate (or higher)

Actually Alienware AW2521H is now available to buy on US Dell store for $900.

Thanks. Unfortunately nothing in the EU.
I was expecting something like $100 increase since the panel without Reflex is already very expensive. It's almost the price of 3 240hz monitors.
