    Has anyone heard anything about release dates or anything? I’m going to buy the c24fg70 monitor right now if no one has heard anything because I’m not gonna wait for a non existent release date

    #43187

    Nope. And as mentioned here, the C24FG70 from somewhere with a good returns policy is a good bet.

    #43189

    yeah i’ll be using your referral code, I appreciate thorough reviews like yours

    Your support is appreciated and I hope you enjoy the monitor. 🙂

    On Amazon UK… Not a cfg73, but an lcfg73? Just popped up today i believe

    #43203

    It’s the same monitor (C24FG73). Samsung add various prefixes and suffixes for their extended model codes. 🙂

    I appreciate users like direct links to these things which they can use. I’ve added some to my first post on this thread.

    I’m highly considering the Samsung C24FG73 (available by the end of this month) as my first option. But will I be able to achieve the 144Hz on my GTX 1070 using the DisplayPort even without G-Sync?

    #43443

    Yes, if you refer to the C24FG70 review you’ll see it is specifically mentioned that “HDMI supports up to 120Hz and DP up to 144Hz on this monitor on both AMD and Nvidia GPUs”. Furthermore, it is explored throughout the review in the context of Nvidia GPUs supporting everything on the monitor aside from FreeSync.

    MusclePharm, I’ve moved your latest post to this thread as it’s an appropriate place for it (we are no longer discussing “27” Full HD monitors”. Hope this didn’t cause confusion. 🙂

    #43448

    Oh, I apolagize then. Must of got confused with the part where it says that the FreeSync wasn’t supported by nvidia and assumed it wouldn’t be able to do 144Hz.

    Anyway, Thank you once again for your effort on this very helpful page sir, greatly appreciated!
    Do you happen to have the affiliated link to this monitor on the Amazon UK page? (it’s a pre-order though)

    #43449

    No problem. 🙂

    Yup, there are some links in my first post on this thread (https://forum.pcmonitors.info/topic/cfg73/#post-42769).

    I bought this monitor a while ago after reading reviews on the FG70 which is apparently the same panel?

    I took a bit of a shot in the dark because all the reviews state virtually no input lag, displayspecifications.com has it at 4ms which is also very fast. But displaylag.com say they have recorded the 24 and 27 version at 24ms input lag which is worse than the new 4k HDR TV’s and double that of most gaming monitors.

    I bought the FG73 to use with Xbox One and then for a gaming pc when I buy one.

    Using it with the Xbox seemed fine with no bad blur or ghosting even on COD, but the input lag was huge and made it pretty much impossible to play online.

    They even used this monitor for the PUbG invitationals at Gamescon so surely the lag can’t be that bad, is it possible it’s something to do with using it via HDMI at 60hz and under or a fault on the monitor I had?!

    I returned it but the monitor seemed perfect in every way apart from the lag, I would re-order it in an instant if the lag went away! 🙁

    We accurately recorded ~4ms of input lag on the C24FG70 with it running at 144Hz – https://pcmonitors.info/reviews/samsung-c24fg70/. It’s certainly possible that input lag is significantly higher when the monitor is running at 60Hz. You’ll enjoy it a lot more when your gaming PC arrives, no doubt, it’s not really as well-suited for console gaming.
