21:9, 2560x1080, 6ms, IPS panel, UWHD - A good combination that won't kill most decent GPUs. 4k ultrawide screens are still in the region of £800 and above, so this is a great alternative until they drop.
Good reviews all over the web. Even though it's not aimed at gamers, it seems to hold its own with some of the best. Low input latency and success stories of overclocking the monitor.

This is a pricematch with overclockers, who did it first: http://www.overclockers.co.uk/productlist.php?groupid=962
For this reason, chances are it will go back up at the end of the week to the £280 region.

It is certainly a hot price. Mine did come from Amazon with the seal broken though. So make sure you check. If the seal is broken you can return for refund or negotiate a further discount on the product.

I love this monitor. I have a 27 inch DGM panel and this panel. I love them both equally. The 27 inch is taller and this panel is wider. Both are fine for games and browsing the web. Some games don't play well with UWHD - particularly AC4. But Grid Autosport on 29 inch UWHD is really nice. The resolution won't break your graphics card either.

Just a note for the games that play badly (I've come across some, but it's not very many). You can just force the game to run at 1080 and have black bars at the sides. You really don't notice it that much and it's like playing on a normal, non ultrawide screen. I know you probably know this, I'm just adding it for others :)

Just a quick note - you need to connect this via displayport ideally. DVI will limit you to 50Hz due to its limited bandwidth. The monitor runs at 60Hz (plus overclocking if you feel like it) without an issue, but you need to use displayport.

Dual-Link DVI supports up to 2560 × 1600 at 60 Hz.

'4k ultrawide screens are still in the region of £800 and above'

More importantly, they don't exist.

4K is 16:9. Oh, and there are also no 21:9 4K+ screens on the market either, in case that's what you meant.

Spot on - terrible wording on my behalf. I was specifically thinking of the 34UM95-P, but that's not quite 4K, granted.

Ah yep. Only going on what others have said - some seem to be stuck at 50Hz without DP. *Shrug*. Not talking from experience, just giving people a heads up.

This is a fantastic monitor at an astonishing price! Mine was £300 and that was a bargain at the time! (In may I think). It works perfectly on DP or HDMI but does require dual DVI

Ftr beyond that. I have my main panel 2560x1600 @70 Hz with no issues at all on dual link dvi. Most people just assume things and dont try them for themselves, only thing I did was patch Nvidia drivers. Simple 60 second job a noob can do.

In fact it will go higher. My panel craps out at 73 Hz.

1440p dual dvi d user here running 96Hz,could run 120Hz too

Nice drop, nice specs, + heat :)

OH MY GOD DID SOMEONE JUST ADMIT TO AN ERROR, ON THE INTERNET!?!?!

I think that means the world is about to end.

Also, I want one of those monitors. £500 is my price.

Exactly. Catleap users run up to about 140Hz.

Nice price, but stubbornly hangin on in for the 34" LG ones to drop in price.

I've ordered this one, but purely on the basis that I know it won't be hard to sell on once they do drop!

Yeah, I think you'd be happier with the 34 inch. The 29 inch is like a very wide 21" monitor.

For those who would like a higher resolution than this, the same aspect ratio monitor with 3440*1440 is being released by AOC in September for ~£500.
