Lenovo L27q-10 Quad HD 27" 60Hz Monitor £209[Image]


Nice find @Tacavas
Any good for gaming with a xbox one x? Or should I look for a 4k screen?
Shame there only 60hz , would have got one it was slightly faster
What would 1080p gaming look like on this? I want 1440p for productivity real estate but my graphics card (rx470) can really only game at 1080p.

60hz not that great, most decent 4k tv sets can run that at 2-3 times the screen size

Better off with a 4k tv for the xbox, this screen is also 2k, in case the quad hd was misleading you a bit.

Watch the linus tech tips video on 4k gaming mate-

As for your q no this is 1440p
1440p at 32inch would be ideal for gaming

4K is for kids, its 8k gaming now, get rid of all your old 4k hardware, man-up and go 8k. Don't worry about the cost, you'll get 10 fps over 4k, £5000+, something to brag about.

If you visit the Lenovo site, it claims it has a 3 year warranty vs AO's 1 year.
When I bought my first one in November '18 - black friday (£129.99), Lenovo's site sometimes quoted 1year then refreshed to display 3 years.

37335017-QQi5B.jpg

Lenovo have the l24q-10 on at £149 (a £30 reduction from full RRP), so you might want to just point the discrepancy out to AO and benefit from 3 years protection. Get them to confirm in writing that it's supplied with the 3 year warranty. Take a screenshot of the Lenovo specs for your files in case you need to claim.

As for quality, the monitor is ok, resolution is fine and using it is a pleasant experience. It IS built to cost as you can witness a few corners cut regarding the quality of the housing. I've had two of these. Both exhibit a minor issue where the lower bezel doesn't seem to be fully flush with the panel it's housing, a very slight bowing where you can see the plastic tangs not fully engaged with the rear casing plate, a gentle prod will make you realise there is a little play in the bezel. If you get this, check that the lower bezel is uniform in temperature and doesn't have any warmer areas, as this will result in non-uniform expansion of the plastic, which might eventually affect the control buttons' tactile response and creaking when coming into contact with that part of the monitor.

The second L24q-10 display doesn't exhibit this heat around the centre of the lower bezel or around the control button area so I don't expect the plastic to fatigue. Manufacture dates of the two monitors differs by a few months, the cooler one stamped as manufactured during 09/2018, and it's supplied with a slightly darker, contrasting stand. The mildly problematic unit is manufactured in 06/2018 and came with a matching shade stand (factory sealed box and bought directly from Lenovo, so no chance of a retailer playing any tricks).
It could be just a chance thing, but these corporates make money because they're smart and organised, I don't think much is left to chance. A- stock is often relegated to "Sales" stock or "discount retailers".

(I think something may have been tweaked in the few months of production. IMO the 'newer' ones avec 3 year warranty, seem to be supplied with a darker stand that contrasts slightly with the colour of the monitor casing, it's a really subtle difference and the webpage product image is photographed in such a way that you could persuade yourself the stand was the same colour shade, or very slightly darker. Could be a cue that Lenovo use. Who knows!?)

So check for the signs. If you get one and there are pronounced heat differences along the monitor's length as you grip between the lower bezel and rear casing, you might be in possession of a less than pucka screen.
It still works, just that it will creak each time you try to adjust any settings, or the bowing of the plastic will start to annoy you. The signs are slight. Some might not even notice, but temperature seems to be the give away sign, and again we're not talking scalding hot or melting plastics, just subtle enough for a lot to miss the signs (and maybe that's why they were assigned as sales stock, who knows?). Electronics and thermal fatiguing don't mix well.

Thanks, this video is the closest I've come to understanding the tech specs.
Shame no VESA mount. Would have made a great second vertical monitor!
Is this good for Xbox one S ?
Factor in another £7 to £10 for a DP cable that they choose to not include in the box (they provide it only with an HDMI cable and its power adapter+mains lead).


Also scroll to the bottom of this webpage pcsupport.lenovo.com/gb/…078
to see if you can make sense of the WARRANTY AND SERVICE INFORMATION
"WARRANTY PERIOD: Three/One years"

I managed to get Currys price match this with AO & Currys have listed it as with 3 years warranty. This was done via the live chat.
24" er a waste of pixels. 60 hz, no freesync, Do you know what? I'm underwhelmed by this stock clearance. The 27" should be 30 quid cheaper and the 24" shouldnt exist.

I take it that neither is for you then?, hehehehehehehehe. :-D
My PC and laptop are HP so would I be better off with one of the HP 27" QHD screens? I know they are more expensive but are they better quality? Thanks.

You can use any brand monitor you or your pocket likes. They're all interoperable providing you've got the right connections.

@ £299.99 they'd better be better quality.
cnet.com/pro…27/ seems to indicate it's a little higher spec'd product with higher refresh rate, an extra HDMI port. But comes with just a year's warranty, so ?mark over the intended audience.

I don't know, I've never quite gelled with HP's design language. It's either overly cheap looking or over-embellished.
If it floats your boat and you can get a good price, go for it.

Is it for gaming or photo editing or just general use?
Have a look at specialist PC retailers like scan.co.uk/sho…nch
or ebuyer.com/sto…ing to get an idea of price and spec ranges out there.

I think the 27" Lenovo https://www.hotukdeals.com/visit/comment/37335968/16097938 at £190 is a good deal for general use and non-pro photo editing.

Thanks - I went for the QHD 27" HP Elitedisplay in the end - wanted a monitor that was height adjustable and this one also swivels, can be rotated and has 2 USB ports in addition to a 5 year warranty.
