Hey, Just randomly browsing and i came across this. I purchased one of these little over 3 years ago for over £400 brand new.

This is a great monitor, I left my eyefinity setup to collect dust while using it. Great for gaming and being productive on.

They have 2 variations of this monitor one comes with a glass panel on screen (i have so easy to clean ) the other is normal monitor film screen. I have no idea if its glass panel or film coated screen.

here are 2 googled reviews

8/10 stars
trustedreviews.com/haz…iew

5/5 stars
alphr.com/haz…iew

TLDR: Amazing gaming/workspace monitor bargain price. Not 4k can run games max on Nvidia gtx 970 or AMD 290. Enjoy the visuals,game-play and sparkles. Requires DUAL LINK DVI port.

Hot hot hot!
great price but I'm not sure you should be recommending it for gaming. The refresh rate is only 60hz.
Very tempted, but with only a single 670 to drive it I don't think I can handle the jump in resolution and still maintain acceptable fps.
How is 2560x1440 2K?
humm dont mind the 60hez but is this ok forma giming in general?

Nothing wrong with 60Hz gaming.

I guess because the horizontal resolution is 2xxx (2k).
Umm - 2K is actually only a little bit bigger than 1080p (since the (2K/4K/8K) naming convention format switched to using horizontal pixels (vs vertical pixels for i.e. 720p etc). I think you'd get more interest if you specified 2560 x 1440 in the title.
Hot.... If the screen doesn't fall off..:{ Thanks and ordered anyway

The burb says glossy screen if it's right. I had the dell u2515h and hated the semi mattt screen so hope this is the glossy model.
Looks a great deal. Voted hot. I have to be sensible though

Generally, aside from marketing, 720p = 1K, 1080p = 2K, 1440p = 3K, and 2560p = 4K. It changes so damn frequently as the marketing teams like to confuse their customers.

Never heard of 1920x1080 being classed as 2k



2K is defined as 2048x1080 at 1.90:1, 1998x1080 at 1.85:1 and 2048x858 at 2.39:1. There is no 16:9 resolution included in the specification, but it's basically anything that's around 2000 horizontal pixels so, if there was, 1920x1080 would fit the bill, although it's not part of the industry standard.

The resolution of this monitor, 2560x1440, which is a 16:9 aspect ratio, is known as QHD (Quad HD), or 2.5K - so if anything it's being undersold here.

But the question is - are these monitors any good? Looks like one of the Korean monitors made from off-grade (A-) LG and Samsung panels. I've been looking into those but haven't seen this one before. It seems to have good reviews - anyone taking the plunge?

I have the Crossover Blacktune (pixel perfect). Bought it a couple of years ago for £200. Arrived via UPS 3 days, yes, 3 days, after ordering direct from Korea.

Picture quality is superb, it's honestly beautiful. Extremely basic in its connectivity etc, but the actual display is brilliant. I haven't even seen any reason to upgrade since buying.
heat! needed a new monitor and didnt want to spend £300 odd on a high end acer 1440p monitor, havent recieved any confirmation emails though
If your after more than 60hz on a budget have a look at this monitor
overclock.net/t/1…ips

Apparently the same panel as 27" imacs. Customs will prolly clobber you with and extra £50 tax.

I've mine overclocked to 96hz.

Hope there's some left when I get home from work!

And professionally != fat kid sat in bedroom at night shouting down a headset whilst playing CoD. Don't think I've come across any professional gamers on hukd.

Still, not sure I'd want to spend £150 on a second hand 3 year old monitor.


Much more like it. Just pay on credit card.

Bought from Accessorieswhole on eBay. Superb stuff. Had to pay import duties however, £50 odd quid. Seemed worth it for the quality of unit received.

Sweet thanks for mentioning it. My 2nd one is being a pain turning on and that one ticks most of the things I want in a monitor and kind of wanted an upgrade too.

Nonetheless I'm still voting this deal hot as it's cheap. The lack of connectivity on both options are a bummer, but there has to be some trade off for the price.
Thanks, bought one. Almost hit purchase a few times on one before, but decided to wait for a better deal.

Monitor #5 :-)

Look in your junk/spam folder as that was where my one was hiding....
I bought three of these (with the glass panels) from Overclockers in December 2011, specifically for some BF3 nVidia Surround action! I paid £360 each (reduced from about £420 each). They are the exact same panels that were used on the iMac at the time.

These monitors are simply stunning, BUT one word of warning! EVERY SINGLE ONE OF MY MONITORS had the glass panel fall off after only a few months. One fell off in the middle of the night and smashed and had to be RMA'd (which subsequently fell off again after a few months), the other two were discovered by myself during the day in the process of sliding off and were superglued back on.

I still use these 3 monitors side-by-side, to this day, and I'm currently typing this post on the middle one.

Apart from the glass panel workmanship, these are fantastic monitors, and I'm tempted to buy another at that price!!

whats the colour reproduction like on these? looking for a larger screen for photo / video editing work
^ Both reviews mention the colour reproduction...
Also, it's probably worth mentioning that one of the reviews states the following:

Update: Hazro has discontinued the glass front for new revisions of this monitor. It has been brought to our attention that, in some cases, the glass of this model may become detached due to an inadequate attachment process, which in turn presents a potential safety hazard. Therefore we would recommend that anyone looking at buying the glass version of this display be cautious of this possible issue.
I have almost bought this screen 4 times since seeing it pop up yesterday....
I have a 27" but its sadly 1080p, I have a 24" led, I have an older 22" 1080p lg thats still going strong...
I have no reason to need this, but the minute I saw it, I needed it.
If only I didn't have this want to be financially stable

The worst part is if I get one I'll want 2, a 1440p next to a 1080p of same dimension is going to be weird.
Is there a HUKD'ers Anonymous or something..?

​same, I can't decide! I was set on the Dell ultrasharp U2515H (same res, 25" and about £240) but now I'm confused wondering if the pixel density will be a bit sparse on this (have used the Dell before and have been amazed by it)

That's the thing, since I'm on a 27 1080p already, I know its going to be a step up.
And its on my desk on a screen mount so not very far from my face...

But I gave my best gpu's to a friend so I could focus on work and be productive, i'm (only) running a single r9 285!?!?!.. Higher res screen just means i'm going to be wanting a bigger gpu too...
Fantastic price for one of these. I had the Yamakasi version up until recently
