Will Bestbuy be getting the Acer XB270HU monitor?

Wondering if Bestbuy will be selling the Acer XB270HU monitor.  First of it's kind 1440p IPS panel with G-Sync.  Should be popular with ethusiast gamers.  Looks like a superiour alternative to the ASUS ROG Swift PG278Q.  

 

It's available already in europe and USA and looks like some canadian online realtors have it on their sites now.

 

Any info is appreciated.

I am not sure how popular it is, personally I find ACER to be a very cheap low quality brand, I think I would take the ASUS over it

Because this is IPS though compared to the Swift that is pretty much insanely expensive for a TN panel, I think the XB270HU will get a lot of attention.  Hearing is basically sold out everywhere in the USA right now, maybe the reason Canada is slow to get any on any sites.

I'd be very surprised if it wasn't available soon, especially with Best Buy investing so much money into expanding. New releases are important to keep up on, especially ones like this.

 

I've been mulling over getting my Swift replaced, perhaps I'll look at swapping for this instead.

Yeah, I would expect Bestbuy to get this monitor too.  They have other G-SYNC monitors like the switt and the 4K display by Acer.  I see the Acer XB270HU on lots of online sites now, but no stock on any.  As usual Canada is last to get the good stuff :smileyhappy:
