Ping is good if the server is Brazilian, it is mediocre at best if the server is in the us. Something like 15-30ms for Brazilian server and 120-250 US east servers.

Marketing people screw everything up, adding "Extreme Performance" and "Professional Gaming Monitor" to its already exciting and memorable name "Philips 242G5DJEB" is overkill.

LCD and TFT Monitor News

Acer XB270HU.. IPS (technically, AVHA, which may as well be) and 144Hz, with G-sync.

Pretty sure that's gonna be my next monitor.

So you're getting screwed over just like most people in the US. There is no justice in the world.

Isn't there any way around that, like have someone in the US buy it and then ship it to Brazil, putting a value of $20 to avoid paying the tax?

only way to avoid it if you travel, buy it in america or europe or something, and bring it back with you. and even then they might tax you depending on how much stuff you bought abroad.

i could have sworn i read that it did, so i looked it up.

Preview of NVIDIA G-SYNC, Part #2 (Input Lag) | Blur Busters

this is a good read

tl;dr it does not add any input lag if you are configured correctly. here is the chart for cs:go. if you play any source games make sure you configure your fps_max=120 otherwise you will get significant input lag.

that's interesting. looks like gsync has some sort of frame rate threshold that you can't go above without getting input lag. that's kinda lame...
