I think it was PCGamer who did a review of the monitor at 144hz and 165hz and noted that at 165hz the input lag was so much higher that you were better off sticking to 144hz. Should be interesting if TFTcentral reviews also says the same thing

I wonder if any FS monitors at 165hz will be introduced at some point in time. Though they are probably waiting for the scalar tech to catch up. Hopefully they could get input lag down tooQuote

Specs are nice - but they're aesthetically challenged imo.

144 v 165hz I doubt I'd notice the difference. From what I've seen there's a huge difference when going from 60-120+ but after that it's less noticeable.

Not saying there aren't people out there that can tell the difference but it's certainly not me.Quote
