Well that thread is more than a month old and I would have never looked at it anyway.

Voted HOT.
Good monitor considering most budget priced IPS panels are rather disappointing.
I bought one last week . I’m pretty fussy with quality and I’m impressed with this for the money .
Found 1 stuck pixel but I can only see it if I’m about 3 inches from the screen .

i use a HP at work that cost twice as much as this and the quality is the same

I’ve got one getting delivered Wednesday so can’t wait and were you not aloud to return it?

Pretty sure it wouldn’t be classed as faulty unless there are a lot more dodgy pixels in a small area.
Not worth sending back as I can’t see it at all at normal viewing distance.

They are all most likely cheap due to not being 100%

Trust me I would I’ve sent a monitor back plenty with currys with 1 or 2 dead still worth it
To those who have it, is the screen matte or glossy?

Thanks :-)
An A2 one of these popped up on the site for £160 so I snagged it. Will feedback when it arrives.

For those who don't know, this is a Pixio PX275h renamed. Check the reviews, they're pretty darn good, I found a guy who had a Dell S2716DG as well, and he preferred this panels colours and overall pop. The Dell is a £300 monitor!

It’s matte
Good deal but 95hz? If you want to upgrade from 60hz to a higher refresh rate, I'd highly suggest paying a bit more for 120/144hz.

Recently switched to a 34" alienware which had 100hz by default and luckily it supported a 120hz overclock otherwise I'd have sent it back!

If you accept brand new products with defects then you're not fussy with quality.

Problem with monitor with similar spec but with 144Hz people are not just paying just "a bit" more, but double or more the price of this monitor.

I guess you're right. Although for me, from past experience. I'd rather go find a used WQHD 144hz monitor on eBay for £200-250 than use this 'brand new' 95hz one.
Tempted. Much of an/any upgrade over my 24" 144hz monitor @ 1080p? (ASUS VG248QE) hmmm

Will this be decent for my Xbox one x playing battlefield v? Currently have a cheap 4K monitor but don’t see much difference
I wonder if you can overclock the refresh rate on this much?
My Iiyama is a 75Hz panel, It took an overclock to 140Hz so pretty chuffed at that.
27" QHD IPS for £180? Where's the catch?
for £10 more you can get it with a stand/arm. I would just book the £15 '5 point check' if you don't want to risk any bad pixels

Which iiyama panel did you over lock and how did you overclock it? I've got the 27" 70hz B2783QSU monitor but I'm replacing it as I wanted 144hz.

Thanks

95hz maybe?

I don't know a ton about monitors but that feels like a significant downside of you want a future proofed monitor

It was this one:
iiyama.com/gb_…b1/

I set a custom resolution in the Radeon settings of my Vega 56. I increased it by 10Hz each time. If it works it will change, If not it will tell you it is unsupported.
I tried to go for 144Hz but it finally topped out at 140Hz.
There are videos on how to do it through Nvidia or radeon settings. Very simple.

That's impressive but does it really work at 140hz. That's an awful big jump from 75hz. I read others say they can barely go over 70hZ on similar monitors.
This or something like the Lenovo L27Q-10 monitor sometimes advertised for £200? This has vesa support but what about the rest.
I have a 32" VA panel at 75hz and the refresh rating doesn't bother me
What is a problem is the smearing and ghosting you get with VA. So tempted to go back to IPS, would this be a good option?
I bought this a few weeks ago and it's excellent value for money. Colours are decent enough (just put the monitor on SRGB displays mode...by default it's on a very bad display mode), and the QHD resolution is a big upgrade over FHD.

I bought mine with the 5 point inspection and there are no dead pixels. However, the panel luminosity is a bit uneven, especially in the top left hand corner. This is visible on white backgrounds but only If am looking for "defects". Clearly the quality control you get with a no name brand like this is not the same as some of the larger manufacturers.

However...it is still an excellent deal and I am very happy with the purchase.

Yup, it works fine. No issues at all. I was surprised myself as I thought it wouldn't work. Tried it on my laptop and I can only get from 60hz to 68hz.

You meant to say allowed as in to give permission. Aloud means > audibly; not silently or in a whisper. Not being a grammar Nazi, just trying to help. We know what you meant, so no big deal. I grew up where phones didn't correct you, there were no phones back then, what a great time that was, anyway I digress. I think this was a genuine confusion as to the spelling of the word.
Just got this panel, I got the £160 A grade one (exact same, QHD 95hz).

It's fab, like really, really good. You won't get another higher refresh, QHD IPS panel under £300.

I've got a £900 asus zen ultrabook which is praised for its IPS QHD screen, yet this budget monitor blows it away in terms of colours.

The refresh rate is also very nice. Overall, it's fantastic, absolutely buy it over a £250+ 1440p 144hz monitor, I can't see them getting much better. Indeed, saw a guy with a Dell S2719DG and this, and he preferred this.

Also 95hz is a sweet spot unless you have an rtx 2080/2080 super.
Even the 2070 fails to hit over 100fps in most titles at ultra.

Will someone who's purchased one mind giving some feedback and showing a picture of what it looks like.
Thanks
