Has anyone bought the Asus TUF Gaming VG279QM, with 280hz ips display. I'm considering buying it, but just wondering if there are things that aren't as advertised.

It's 27 inch 1080p so you are really gonna see a looot of pixels. I advice against it and that you get a 1440p 144hz monitor instead.

That and it's 280hz you need like a super beast pc to even get 280fps in games that aren't counter strike or rocket league.

From reviews it's a really good and very fast monitor. You'd definitely want to buy it only if you're very competitive and can actually have such frames with higher end system.

Otherwise can get like 1440p 144Hz and play esport games at lower res.

Id do it. Don't wonna ruin the muscle memory you've built on 1080p on a 1440p monitor. I only did it for one specific game and using it on one more simply because I cant see people. Trade off not being able to hit them though. Im quite happy with a 240hz monitor as I don't wonna build a rig that can actually hit 300 frames with the quality turned up.
