This monitor is simply amazing. If you've got a Freesync capable GPU, you're gonna love it. 1440p at 60+ fps is a dream! No tearing at all, even at 90+ fps, which is the cutoff for this monitor's Freesync capabilities. At first I almost didn't buy it because of that (this monitor tops out at 144 Hz), but then I did some research and discovered that Freesync is much more noticeable at low frame rates and has extremely diminishing returns at high frame rates. I haven't noticed any tearing above 90 fps, and I'm pretty sensitive to screen tearing. As long as your GPU can keep the frame rate of your game above 35 fps, you're going to love this monitor. An IPS panel gives this monitor fantastic colors and IPS glow (which you can't ever escape from with this tech) is minimal. Certainly better than my previous Dell Ultrasharp, which was top of the line when it came out. All in all, I strongly recommend this monitor. It's a gorgeous monitor and hits all the important check boxes: 1440p, 27", Freesync, IPS.

No dead pixels. I dont see any backlight bleed like what other people mentioned. Ample inputs. I really do like that that audio can be routed to the monitor. USB ports for my iPhone charging with passthrough even when the monitor and computer are off. I have several computers connected to the monitor and it automagically switches to whichever one has a signal -- including the audio. This allows me to have one set of speakers with multiple computers. Viewing angels are wonderful (IPS panel). It's great that it has mini display port, display port, and HDMI inputs. Freesync with my desktop while playing games (I paired it with AMD RX 480) -- wonderful wonderful colors. No annoying blinking blue light when it goes on standby (like my previous monitor). Great display options and I like using the small joystick at the back. I love this monitor!
So... my verdict is:
Thank you Best Buy for selling this and allowing in-store pickup!

I bought this monitor being very skeptical of what I was going to get based on reviews from places like Amazon and Newegg as they talked about dead pixels and backlight bleed and excessive amounts of IPS glow. Some of these people mentioned returning the monitor 2-10 times until they finally gave up or got a good one. That said, I was excited to see people get duds online and get a good unit from a storefront.
My monitor came to me spotless and very very good looking! I have some IPS glow but I've come to terms with it as it appears to just be the nature of IPS. It takes up a chunk of the bottom right corner and some in the other corners but it isn't obnoxious and only noticeable in dark scenes. Not enough to have me hyper focus on it, just notice it.
Anyways, the goods about this monitor:
Great quality colors from the IPS panel which is good for my photo editing. They have an sRGB mode which I hear is pretty close to full sRGB accuracy, however I might calibrate it one day.
The 27" is great too and good for editing photos, gaming and really nice for programming. After having one monitor with the height adjustment I have made it a requirement to always have it for neck comfort and this has that too.
Finally, the reason why I splurged this heavy chunk of change was to have a single monitor for a good color accurate panel and 144Hz. I have been using the Asus VG248QE for over a year now and have tried to get myself to like 75Hz so I could get a wide 21:9 monitor but I just can't do it, and this monitor delivers. the 2560x1440p is a good plus but man...my 970 is working hard and I definitely can't use the whole 144Hz for any demanding games, but that doesn't matter to me, still need the 144Hz for games that can do 60+ and just for plain desktop use.
All in all, awesome monitor if you can get a good one. I don't see myself upgrading from this for many years to come because it is a very future proofed monitor
