    It's a pulsed backlight, just a rebranding of what they previously called 'Benq Blur Reduction'.

    Ah, branding. I want to know why they went for "DyAc" when "DynAc" rolls off the tongue way better.

    Another standard fast, 1080p TN panel that will be jacked up to £300+ because "gamers tax"...

    Why are 4K IPS monitors cheaper than a half decent 1440p screen that can do 120/144hz? It's a little ridiculous.

    Cause 1440p is the happy medium on gpus. And for Normal work it just much easier to use than 4K is.

    You will pay a lot for a IPS 1440p 140hz screen. They are expensive to produce.

    That's what i'm getting at though - Modern entry level GPU's can play most games at 1080p no problem nowadays, and even the best ones struggle at 4K. Why are monitor manufactures keeping us in limbo and not ramping up production of 1440p panels, reducing the costs and pushing for that to be the new PC standard?

    I don't even necessarily need an IPS/VA panel, even a half decent TN that can do 144hz @ 1440p for under £250 would be a good start!
