Couldn't want any more in a monitor, and I am excitedly awaiting delivery of mine on Saturday :)

Should be a nice step up from my old 24" 1080p TN 60hz screen.

Hope this helps someone, I been looking for ages

Only £20 cheaper than the Amazon price, excluding delivery.

once you add in delivery it's £440. £10 cheaper than Amazon.

So you're saving around 2.2% or so on a £450 item.

Great monitor, but isn't a deal.

There's free dpd next day delivery on it, so 4% cheaper :)

Amazon would probably price match if you asked them, but you can't buy an overclockers mug off them

No wonder it doesn't feel like Easter, you've just spent all the Easter Bunny money on a 144hz monitor :D

It is a great monitor, colour reproduction, refresh rate both are fantastic (once tuned), a very low 4ms delay as its ahva ips screen type...
However, not a deal, Scan do it at £400 and £11.50 delivery.
I bought it earlier this year at £400 with free delivery from ebuyer (offer ended).
I havent really even looked recently (since I bought it) but it keeps hitting the £400 mark.

Not going to vote it hot or cold as it's still very good bang for your buck at this price, its a bargain, but since its cheaper elsewhere you get no heat either as its not a deal (plus overclockers customer support ewwwwww I always try to avoid).

I see your supposed "in the know" great deal and raise you a mega-wide monitor:

http://m.hexus.net/tech/news/monitors/104428-samsung-preparing-49-inch-mega-wide-329-curved-monitor/

Now if that came in at £500-£600 I'd be laughing!

They must have changed it sorry - I definitely haven't paid any delivery fee!

Glad you're enjoying the monitor, I cant wait for mine!

Cheapest I could find last night, but then I'm not very good at waiting - 4 day weekend ahead of me, need it ASAP!

Like i said, still a good price, it will be money well spent, thats why i'm not voting it cold.
but beware freesync and running it at 144hz/fps for a better result sometimes limiting fps on radeon settings is better as its more pleasing to get a steady frame rate than one that jumps around loads. if you limit the top end sometimes you get better low end frames. For example if i just freesync then frames jump between approximatly 50fps to 144fps in Rocket League where as if i limit it to 72 it runs at a very steady 72fps, I mean it never waivers.
I only mention this as you are upgrading from a 60hz just incase you arent aware of how it will try pushing 144hz/144fps then throttle when your card struggles. Obviously I don't know what card you have but maybe this advice will be of some help to you when tweaking. added bonus is you can also often keep the gfx card cooler and quieter twith a little limiting :)

Brilliant, thank you mate!

I am running a gtx1060 though, so no option of Freesync, so I will definitely be trying the frame limiting.

Deal is dead now, but hopefully monitor tomorrow, so that will cheer me up :)

Would think a 1060 will not make the most of this spec monitor. Surely a 1070 would be worth it.
I have a 1070 for my 1080 monitor but it's 144hz g-sync so like the high FPS.
Horses for courses i guess, enjoy though, voted hot.
#17
The 1070 would be good with this monitor. High end AMD gpu's with freesync would make the most of this.
