    Another thing that I'd be interested in knowing is whether "In multi-display configurations, FreeSync will NOT be engaged (even if both FreeSync displays are identical)" would be true from that link as well. If I can just replace my center monitor and freesync would work, I'd most likely buy one, but I'm not going from 3 monitors down to 1 just for freesync.

    Nice. But it's too big for the resolution. I want those exact specs in 27". I have a 27" monitor that resolution and it's perfect.

    I'm not yet ready to go to 4k, which is a more appropriate resolution for 32".

    Here's one, but the reviews aren't great and I wish it weren't curved.

    30Hz to 144Hz freesync range with LFC
    27 inch screen with 2560x1440 resolution
    great colours with it's IPS panel

    Have the sammy 32 fs 2 monitor, It's actually rather good. FS range was increased with a firmware update not long after release. 40 - 144 iirc

    This means that I may finally buy a new monitor next year. I've been waiting to do it, since paying extra for FreeSync wasn't worth it unless I could actually utilize it in Linux. Then I'd rather wait for the support, and get a better monitor for my money when that finally happened.

    I'm looking for a widescreen monitor, preferably curved, with 4K and 144 Hz, and great colors. I've been working with a 4K 40" monitor (not widescreen) during the last couple of years and it really is a treat. Going back to 2x24" and 1920x1200 feels extremely limiting and small, in comparison. The problem is that I haven't got room for a 40" screen at my home desk, so I have to settle for something smaller.

    freesync hdmi monitor with the Rocket League game. That is really cheap here now, only 109 euros including 24% vat.

    I was more interested in 4K 144Hz IPS/VA that isn't G-Sync. I would own such a monitor for many years, so FreeSync would be a bonus.
