Amazon have now matched the Overclockers UK price. Good price for a 1440p monitor with FreeSync (if you can live with the red colour!), all that's missing is an IPS panel. As a fast gaming monitor, this is a good deal.

No backmount? Can anyone tell me if the stand detaches? (I have a clamp-type adapter that provides a backmount for screens that don't have one - but the stand would need to be detachable..)
Grrrrrrrrrrr

Guilty as charged. But I did have a go and looked at the manufacturer's website, companies advertising it for sale, reviews. I didn't find the answer - so I asked for help.

I've seen one where only the "foot" comes off, leaving the "leg" attached. Knowing my luck, this one could have been like that..
I have been looking for a 1440 display for a while. I bought one of those cheap [sic] chinese ones... filed a claim 15 mins after receiving it and plugging it in.. PCB went and they wanted me to do a home repair on it with them sending the parts - avoid at all costs.

This however looks very tasty, just want the price to come down a touch.

Dya mean Korean? The PCB on them is extremely easy to replace. Luckily I haven't had to on mine yet, had it for a year and a half now But yeah, as you say, avoid if you're not too techy as the PCB can be daunting. Otherwise, most beautiful panel I've seen!

times moved on so much, and yea i mean Korean [but they all the same, right? sic]...

ultimately if you are spending hundreds of pounds, you should never have to replace internal components yourself... especially when you are not saving all that much against a UK bought monitor...
i got one of these on amazon's deal of the day a while back, great monitor especially if you have an amd gfx card that supports Freesync.
Would this be fine with a PS4? I have a gaming pc but also a PS4 on the same desk that I use.

I use my monitor, very similar spec to this and its fine with a PS4, it will only display in 1080p as opposed to 1440p, my only issue is the speakers are a bit tinny but if that won't bother you go for it

Yeah im currently using a 1080p BenQ monitor for the PS4... I just didn't want to buy this and be disappointed.
Maybe a dumb question but could you output to external speakers via this? Assume so via the Headphone socket...
