Damn, beat me too it. lol. The screen quality on this monitor is brilliant, better than the Dell and AOC 1440p screens I've used, but the build quality is no where near as good. Even if mine is a little temperamental, at this price I'm tempted to get another!

Got a Crossover 27Q myself, but at this price, this is very tempting and it also has HDMI and DisplayPort too... Would be useful to allow me to connect up my PS3.

Don't want to bother with the hassle of selling my Crossover 27Q though.

Who on earth votes this cold? PC world shoppers here again???

This seems a great price, I've been considering moving from my 23" 120hz Samsung to a 27" 1440p IPS monitor for a while now - Just not sure if I would miss the 120hz too much...

Was close to pulling trigger but reviews are far from stellar so swerved. £15 postage is absolute nonsense

I'd agree this isn't rated so highly. Have to pick you up on the postage comment though. How much should it cost? Postage isn't free. Someone has to pay it.

Wish I had the money spare. Would love for this monitor.

Would advise those wishing to buy it to give this monitor a google and read some reviews/forums

Wow, I would snap this up if I didn't have a 27 incher already. You'd be hard pressed to find this resolution for cheaper today. The glossy screen might be a problem in a sunny room.

I wouldn't think many professional users would want a gloss screen?

I don't own a Hazro myself but I've read a lot of bad reviews and bad user experiences over the years on the various forums I frequent. Poor build quality/QC and reports of failure are rife. I had the chance to buy a new HZ30Wie on the cheap just before Christmas but decided against it, glad I did as now holding out for the Benq BL3200PT coming down to around £400. Saying that this would be an ideal alternative to the Korean's, probably cheaper too after you factor in taxes. Glossy screen would put me off though.

Yes the postage has to be picked up by someone, but Amazon, Dabs, CCL, Novatech, Ebuyer, Kikatek all have very low/free delivery options. Really puts me and quite clearly by posts on here other people off buying from Aria, Scan and OC's.

They have great prices that often beat competitors, some people are just never happy! oO

After building a £1500 pc in the last 2 days, I can tell you that OC's OCCASIONALLY have good deals on, but very rarely beat competitors on price. Especially after postage is applied. This monitor is one of these rare deals.

Won't find better for the price. I've got the yamakasi version and it's excellent. Same panel as apple have used in the 27" iMacs

Good Price. I had the HZ27WC for a while, which looked almost identical. I couldn't fault the picture, but the lack of height adjustment was a problem to me. Eventually the glass front panel fell off, so I returned it to Scan. Hazro took so long with the RMA that Scan refunded me (I bought a 1440p Dell after that, which cost considerably more, but is a truly excellent monitor).

Good price for what it is. But be ware of hazro's non-existent support and these have only 1 yr warranty with ocuk. Still better than Korean ones though.

You're still paying for delivery whether it's included in the price or listed separately. I don't see the problem. Sounds like from what you say people would be happier if they added £15 to the price and said 'FREE DELIVERY' either way you always pay for it. There is no such thing as free I'm affraid.

could I use this as a TV if I plugged in the sky box?

Yes I understand that, but I would be happier if the business as a whole incorporated their delivery costs into their pricing over all...like the rest of the other suppliers I listed. For example, if I was to buy a Corsair power supply from here or another supplier I would have to pay similar or lower price from the other shop, but with free shipping. At a time where the majority of people are moving to online shopping, these shipping costs should be absorbed, incorporated into their business model or even subsidised.

All I'm saying is that this extra expense is a deal breaker for most. Especially when its 7.5% extra cost.

I understand what you're saying re 'perception' however, at the end of the day, customers pay, that's where the company profits come from to give 'free' shipping. The customer always pays for the shipping whether it's included in the price or listed separately.

Being a business owner myself, I always get frustrated listening to those windscreen fitting company ads on the radio that offer 'free' repairs. The people who buy car insurance ultimately pay for it, so it is therefore not 'free'. There is no such thing as free. It's financially impossible from any business model. The only exception being when a business overcharges on one item to subsidize shipping on other items that are only worth the shipping cost, but again, the customers always pay. Nothing is ever 'free'.

I've said my piece anyway

Thanks for pointing out to us, good deal!

Do you know if the 60Hz refresh rate is for Displayport only, or that and HDMI?

Sold out unfortunately

Thanks for posting this. I picked one up for my brother, he will be delighted.

Not now they aren't.

Ha, you gotta love retail panic buying tactics.. Only 10 available - NOW SOLD OUT - No wait another 10 available!

Sent mine back earlier in the year, awful build quality and panel.

I think the shipping argument is more related to the courier is probably only charging OcUK £4 , or should be.
so either OcUK is crap at sourcing courier , or is pulling a fast one (ebay style!).

Crap build or not, its up to £269 now, expired.

Back at £269.99

1440p 60fps >>>>> 1080p 120fps

Once you hit 60fps, there isn't really much need to go any more above that, especially at the cost of the resolution.

Fantastic price for the specs, but I'd recommend the overclockable Korean monitors + Squaretrade warranty over this (or anything Hazro). And yes... even though this is/was cheaper.

Hazro claim you have 3 years warranty, but you will only get 1 properly covered year. Then after that, Hazro will totally ignore you, choosing only to 'communicate' (and I say that lightly) with the retailer. They'll take weeks to arrange getting your monitor, only to then say they can't replace it or repair it, so the retailer then has the only option of giving you a partial refund... which in my case was around £140 for a monitor I spent £480 on under two years prior!

Also, these glass fronted Hazro monitors suffer the most. The glass comes loose (mine protruded around 2mm from the bezel), which causes varied sized dust particles to accumulate over the years. And they look worse than dead pixels...

My first Hazro screen had around 200+ stuck pixels, the replacement which I regrettably kept had around 15-20 (and the dust/bezel problem). It completely died from the controller board blowing after a little under two years.

So, if you've ordered this, you should really cancel it. £200 will seem like an awful lot to have paid when you run into problems after a year. Hazro are truly the worst company I've ever dealt with. You'd be far better off with a QNIX + Squaretrade warranty, as you will get a 100% refund if it dies and they can't fix it during the 3 year warranty period... which they more than likely won't be able to given it's made in Korea, etc.

overclockable Korean monitors how much ?

cruisecars

overclockable Korean monitors how much ?



The cheapest with Squaretrade warranty is £190.99 = £29.99 warranty (Item no 121256076370)

You'll also need to add import duties/taxes as well.

You'll probably find a few of the sellers are willing to put a lower value on the customs form if you ask. I only ended up paying £12 duties/tax for mine I think, which was from seller storewithstory - item 221413502872. Although they now seem to have removed the part about them declaring a lower value... I'm sure it used to be at the bottom

+1 for such an informative post

Not sure I'll buy a Korean monitor right now (which I was pretty unaware of until reading) but if I do so in future I'll definitely refer back to this

Got the non-glass version of this and it's awesome. Great image quality and beautiful and vibrant colors. Not noticed much ghosting in games (very occasionally in racing games tho). Build quality is average. Being the non-glass one it's a bit better but still not great. Stand feels very flimsy and only tilts a little but nothing a basic VESA mount stand won't sort out. If you're on a budget and want a 27" 1440p screen this is great but if you can up your budget then go for a Dell screen. Not had experience with Hazro customer services (though i know their pretty s**t from what I've heard).

1440 and 1600 will get cheaper and cheaper now I'll hold out for a decent 30" 4K I think.

Then just wait 2 or 3 years for the cards that can push 4k.

Better for me and quite a few others if they don't incorporate delivery costs into the prices as I live close to their store so can go and collect for free
