What's the point in the increased cost?

The Acer 27" Nitro VG270UP 144Hz FreeSync IPS Gaming ZeroFrame Monitor retails for ~£330, whereas the ASUS 27" Quad HD 165Hz Adaptive Sync HDR IPS Gaming Monitor will set you back nearly £120 more at ~£450.  Yet, other than a slightly better refresh rate I can see no reasonable difference.  What makes the latter so much more expensive than the former?

I've realised that I've posted this in the wrong section, apologies.  Could it please be moved to the 'Displays' section?

Your second link points to this thread, instead of the monitor.

Just to confirm, is it the ASUS VG27AQ you're talking about?

 

Other than the higher refresh rate, it also has G-Sync, instead of Freesync. I also see HDR, but I am not sure how important that is.

Ah, yes it is.  I've updated the link.

GSync, most likely. I'd say it's worth the extra if you have an Nvidia card.
