I know a lot of our readers have been very excited about all the 4K G-Sync displays that have been rolling out. Most of these have been right about the $2000 mark. Yeah. That is two thousand US dollars each. If you are thinking about plunking down this kind of cash on a 27" display, which most of you probably are not, you will want to give this guy a listen for 11 minutes. Outside of all the actual display issues, his Acer Predator is too loud. Yeah, his is loud. Using the included VESA mounting bracket cuts off all the airflow that is needed to actively cool the panel. Thanks @cageymaru.

For a two thousand dollar monitor those are all flaws that are unacceptable. The fan was louder than my computer, and I think I have ten fans in my computer.
