I personally really dont like that its not 4K because nowadays its just standard with the new consoles coming out soon and all the strong graphics cards right now.
It would be the perfect monitor if it was 4K and would stay at the same price point.
I think it should come out this fall but if not maybe they work on it more and add the 4K display that would be pretty cool!
Actually, 1080p is still the standard for PC, not matter what people like to think. Even 720p still has more users than 1440p and 4k combined.
PCMR is a myth
Ya it's crazy. I think consoles confuse people into thinking 4k is normal too, even when 4k consoles can't do 4k, they just upscale to that. And consoles are usually at Low/Medium graphics compared to Ultra as standard for PC. It's all marketing.:eek_: The next next console generation can probably do 4K in about 5 years since PC's are able to now but it's pricey. 1080p is probably staying popular too since that's all you can get 240hz in, but the 1440p 240hz are coming this fall. You're right tho, the enthusiast is a small market compared to the rest, but they spend a lot:big_grin_:
1080p is popular because it's more affordable
1440p gaming cost twice as much as 1080p gaming (CPU, GPU, Monitor ...)
Most people who want 4k 240hz *NOW* most probably can't afford it (or don't want to spend the money for it), and manufacturers know that
Nope, there has been no announcement yet.
I heard it starts shipping around Mid November so keep yer eyes peeled :big_grin_:
its got great reviews - anyone know any downsides apart from the "no 4k support?"
Can’t watch any video at the moment but color is my main selling point on whether I buy 2 of these lol
And blast it @Joikansai for always beating me to the review video post. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye_:
It’s great and according PCmag it’s 100%
There are design flaws with the wires and other issues too.
Basically saying you can get a better monitor for half the price with better specs.
I really don't see a design flaw with the wiring. Just connect the wires before mounting them in the slots and you'll be golden. And I've tried to find "a better monitor for half the price with better specs", and I couldn't. One of the main selling points for me was PIP/PBP functionality - none of the other gaming monitors with the Raptor's specs had it that I could find. Considering the Raptor's feature set, I think the price is a bit high but still in line and I'm sure the price should come down in the coming months. I'd really like to see a 32" version though, but the 27" will hold me over for now.
Agreed, that video is junk. I think they're just anti-Razer. Are there cheaper 1440p 144hz monitors? Ya, of course. But if you want the best colors, features, and performance this is it. It's even in the Tom's Hardware best monitors. https://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/best-gaming-monitors,4533.html
they are saying that if you try and adjust the monitor height etc after the cables are all in place - you cannot do this....
is this not the case?
they dont seem anti-razer at all
