Cracking price for FreeSync that!
The only thing that worries me about Freesync is that I understand that AMD let monitor vendors choose rates and stuff is that right?

Yes it is the monitor manufacturer that gives a monitor a FreeSync range, which is the range for framerates within which freesync will work.

This range is mostly down to the monitor scaler, which is a technology that is improving a lot over time (remember that FreeSync is only a year or so old).

AMD do not control this range, but over time these ranges will improve with future monitors. some are as low as 48-75 and others are as wide as 35-90 or 40-144Hz.

Very interested. Wonder what the image quality and response time are? Do you know how many MS the response time is?

£100? That's rough...
Even though, G-sync has it's own qualities that are worth the price.

These should sell pretty well in my eyes...It's a shame the current gen consoles don't support FreeSync haha

Hmmmmm £129 for a 24" freesync monitor. Think I might be selling my Acer pretty soon.
Any links to retailers? Be interesting to see what cables it comes with i.e Display port lol
