Cheapest ever according to Camel, buy directly from Amazon for 177.96 or £175 through NG Solutions via Amazon.

Very good monitor, one of the best 1080p monitors out there at the moment, definitely worth the money, although it has been cheaper through other sources before.

Enjoy.

Would have been all over this if it hadn't had an 8ms response time.
Still hot though.

I got one from NRG IT in the new year. It was boxed as new so it has a stand and a 3 year on site warranty. It costed me just £149

I can game on the monitor with no problems at all. You should be aware though that most revisions of this monitor are a little picky about how you daisy chain them. You also need to make sure you set the monitors colour profile to the custom factory calibrated sRGB profile and then set your GPU colour range to full (0-255).

Ooooh... This is quite a nice price. I got a 23 inch one in 2012, and it's really a cracking screen for photo editing.
Gosh, I hate this site sometimes.
I don't need a second monitor.

Considering I'm primarily gaming though surely I should be waiting for a much lower response

8ms is fine for gaming. I have 3 of their P2214H monitors that have 8ms response time and they work flawlessly in fast-paced games. No issues whatsoever reaching the top of the leaderboard

Sounds like a goer then. What's the refresh rate? Can't seem to see it anywhere.

Cool. I've stuck it through flubit to see what happens and I'll order it when I get my cards in order!
All I need now is a proper desk for everything and it's game time.

Nice! Which cards are you going for?
And will you get GTA V?

I meant my bank cards haha.
But I have a windforce GTX 970 potentially will get a second if the prices drop a little bit I need a better PSU first as only 450W and its Not gonna cut it tbh.

I will get GTA but I need a desk and monitor first as its running through my TV on the wall and I sit on my bed with a piece of board for a mouse pad. So it's not the greatest set up lol.

Edit: I need to sort out my quoting.

Don't be afraid to max out that 970 on its own with the additional one! I'm running 4 displays off a MSI 970 (3 in Nvidia Surround and the 4th as Accesory Display) and it manages 5760x1080 Surround on the top 3 flawlessly, with no framerate spikes.

I'd go the extra £24 for the U2415 on Alternate at £199, it's the brand spanking new version of this but it's 1200p - they've got 2015's 25" too, 1440p, for ~£234 (price varies, euro based I think?)

I tried a cheeky OC with it but couldn't get the profile to save it did well but I think the PSU was the limiting factor and kept getting coloured artefacts all over.
Sounds like they can support a lot more than I'm pushing it though which is nice.

I just bought this monitor for £185 brand new, from a seller on Amazon last week (Amazon Fulfilled seller). It is a fantastic secondary monitor. I tried it with BF: Hardline in gaming mode and had no problems killing people in comparison to a 144hz screen; so the delay was rarely noticeable. The monitor does look more grainy compared to my Dell 29" ultrawide though. I can't seem to calibrate to look as good- yet they are two differently priced monitors. It is possible to overclock the Hz to roughly 80 etc, but at the cost of IPS. I did have a problem trying to get this to work with Display port at first. Make sure you connect this after you start up your PC, unless your using Daisy chain, then you should only have DP 1.2 on your main monitor and 1.2 turned off on your 2nd or 3rd monitor. This is the only way to get daisy chain working. Hope this helps
