Nice looking monitor, although I suspect the resolution will be a deal breaker for some at this price. My LG Ultrawide has a better resolution for less money, albeit a 25".
I have a 27" monitor connected to my laptop and its great even at Full HD. Plays all games at native resolution, also excellent for watching blu rays and connected to my xbox for gaming as well

So super hot from me
I've just ordered this to replace my 30" Apple cinema display. I'll report back when I have it setup with pictures

Nice looking monitor, not one I've really one i have come across before, certainly seems a decent price and looks super smart and clean. I always find it odd when retailers don't shout about things like Freesync! CHeers
Resolution is too low
Beautiful looking 👌

1 hdmi, 1 display port
I’d like one with a DVI for using my PC and a USBC for my MacBook, does one exist!
Low res and low refresh rate.yuck.
thanks, ordered, fine res for me - not a 4k gamer

Seems like a downgrade, I couldn't go from 2560x1440 back to 1920x1080.

But whatever I suppose as long as you're happy with it.

Wow, that is a lot of monitor for the money. Does anyone have any experience with one ? Brand reliability ? Would also like to know !
I cannot understand why people would buy a curved monitor? I suppose a curved screen is awesome when you go to the cinema but having curved monitors is to me really stupid especially only 27". It would be like having an old CRT screen but they were concave until they started making the flat one.
I might be totally wrong but someone tell me what is the significance of have a curved monitor when you are more or less sitting on top of it? Someone explain to me please why?
No idea why this is hotter than the recent Argos Samsung Quantum Dot 144hz Freesync deal. Sure it is only 24" but I'm looking at it now and it's stunning. QLED is great.

Smaller display though, so it lessens the effect. However at 27 inches, I would want higher than 1080 for sure.
Good price for what it is. Would suit movies and some games well for someone who sits fairly close(to make some use of the curve) , and is not too much of a pixel peeper.
Good for a laptop that doesn't have the grunt to drive 1440p too.

My thinking is a 30" at 1440 to a 27" at 1080 there shouldnt be that much of a difference. Also the cinema display is an LCD panel.

You can buy adapters for both DVI and USB-C to HDMI for not much money. You will never find a monitor with USB-C inputs, you have to use an adapter for those.

If this was 1440p with a wide freesync range I'd be all over it! Still holding out.

There’s a few with USBC but not with DVI too, I guess I’ll change the graphics card out for one with HDMI.

Ah didn't know that. You can still just get a DVI-HDMI adapter for a couple quid on ebay rather than swap the entire graphics card. Most monitors don't come with DVI anymore, the expectation is if you need it you use an adapter to HDMI.

I bought a curved, 27" monitor fairly recently. I didn't keep it, but I did come to very much like the curve. There's definitely nothing stupid about it, assuming you're using it at a desk, and so will have optimal distance and center viewing angle. It's a subtle effect, but the curve gives the image a more natural feel to it. When I switched back to my old flat monitor, the thing felt like it was bent out at the edges and really showed how unsatisfying a flat screen is once you've gotten used to a curved one.

It's not a huge deal, but I would be quite happy to see more curved monitors going forward. I actually feel they're a much better fit for monitors than they are for living room TV's.

There has been research that shows curved monitors actually relax the eyes more and are less fatiguing, so something to think about if you have poor eyesight!

I was lucky enough to see happen once, I can understand why you'd like to see it too.

That one has a 12ms refresh which would be absolutely horrific for gaming on. There is also nothing mentioned about the colour quality so I would steer well clear of that personally.
Nice looking monitor, but expensive for 1080p. I'd rather have this QHD 2560 x 1440 monitor for the same price:
