This is an IPS so HEAT!
Finally back in stock and ordered with code! Hopefully get Quidco cashback aswell!
I think I read somewhere that the cash back doesn't work with student discount. Hopefully it does work though.
Got this on the last deal. Brilliant piece of kit.
Hmm I bought this from Currys yesterday for £284 and it's coming today

Might just return it and order from acer. How do you apply the student discount? Went all the way through to entering payment info but no where for a voucher code?

Edit - For other idiots like me: gotta go to the basket first rather than going straight to check out

Edit 2: Currys'price promises is valid for 7 days after purchase, so try that first

Scroll down on the landing page immediately after you click on add to basket.
Would anyone have a spare student code please? It would be most appreciated

Done
My Kingdom for a discount code!
Thanks for the code @Vincentsilver. Also you can use Honey extension for Chrome as the code it applies also works (instead of the Uni code).

Quidco 4% also active.

Debating whether or not I return my HP TN model back to Amazon...

Any inclination of how good the stands are?

No height or pivot. Just tilt. But fine on a decent desk.

Hey that's right, using any form or vouchers or discount codes will deem cashback as ineligible, so ensure you don't use them - Joseph (joseph@quidco.com)
Got 1. Thanks.

Probably a stupid question but with it being a monitor can I watch the amazon fire stick through this?

It has a hdmi input so I think probably yes
Hi
Is this any good for basic Photoshop(colour)? And does to come with speakers ?
Slow response time for a gaming monitor, even by IPS standards. Also black light bleeding a known issue. Still probably worth a punt at £250

For £50 more there is Acer XV2 Gaming Monitor | XV272UP | Black. Supports more colours and HDR. Is it worth to invest more or save money?

Afaik same panel better stand. Personally I would save my £50 and get this. If you need a more adjustable stand use the savings to buy a 3rd party vesa mount

Think this is the one they reworked from older models.
Any backlight bleed?

It’s 1ms response? Am I missing something

All monitors do except oled. Bit of a lottery. Mine is good fwiw
I decided to cancel my order I am just going to buy the Samsung Odyssey G7 27inch for £450, I spend over £699 for my phone, £1089 for TV why should I cheap out on a monitor when I spend most of my time on the pc. Just going to spend the extra

Although grey to grey (gtg) reporting is better than mprt, manufacturers list the minimum time. So while 1 ms gtg looks good it doesnt actually tell you anything about the average response time, which is the most important.

The best IPS panels, such as the LG GL850 have an average response time of 5 ms as measured by tft central.

In the end I couldn't find an official measurement for this panel but I'm guessing it's similar to the the VG271UP, which is about 15 ms average.

The best TN panels manage 2-3 ms average and the best VA manage 8 ms but are typically 15 ms+

Admittedly those fast IPS monitors are £350+ so I wouldn't knock this deal.

I've tried 2 times to checkout but the payment failed. One with PayPal and one with Bank card. Don't know why it isn't letting me
Any more student discount codes?
