Is anybody has experience with this model? recomended over dell?
This is the cheapest 28'' 4K IPS monitor I've seen on here.
Be sold if was 144hz, be perfect for Xbox.

Never ever will lenovo supercede dell. Especially with their customer service.

More details on that link lick on PDF icon, as there is nothing in the actual page. Shame about limited inputs.
I spotted this through another discount path, but I can't find pretty much any actual info. The 4ms response looks a bit high, but 75Hz isn't bad. I want to use it for occasional gaming (Overwatch - not a pro or anything, just for fun), I have no idea what it'd be like... Decisions decisions!

According to the spec sheet @hmsq82 linked in their comment above response times are slower (6ms/14ms). Still probably fine for what you're looking for.

Xbox is 120 hz at 1080p only and the games are capped to 60 hz for the most part so this is actually already perfect for Xbox given it will do 4k at 60hz the highest available res + frame rate on the console
Just made the purchase! Although slow response times, still 4k monitor for under £250. Just what I need for 4k video and photo editing!

4ms is fine, it's the 75hz that you might not like

1-5ms is fine for gaming IMO, it's the TV's that have 10+ when it become questionable
Edited by: "rjw1987" 15th Mar
That 4ms is using the extreme overdrive setting, which will look horrendous. It's 6ms in normal mode.

Thanks; my current UW is 75Hz (Freesync) and honestly, for my AMAZING SKILLS it's perfectly adequate. The problem is that I need a large display with a decent resolution for working from home, and gaming is just an added bonus use. There are no happy solutions for both without paying rather large amounts of money...

I actually ordered this one, I'll see what it can actually do in 1-2 weeks when it arrives. Worse case scenario I'll make a fuss and return it, or.. Buy an additional high refresh 1080p monitor that I physically swap in and out

That's a good point, false advertising if that's the case. I'll confirm when it arrives...

Pretty sure this monitor does not have a 75Hz panel. I've tried everything at this point basically and still can't get anything higher than 60Hz.
Not even a single Hz overclock is possible.
Today I called the german lenovo hotline and after an hour of nonsense they said they'd send me replacement although I said I'm 100% sure my model is absolutely fine.
Don't buy it if you expect it to work with 75Hz@4k. It won't work

If you have access to MyUnidays and haven't ordered from Lenovo before you can get it for £215.99.

First, get the discount via MyUnidays - brings the price down to £236.99.

Second, google 10% off first order Lenovo - follow the link to their site and sign up for their newsletter. You then get a unique code for 10% off.

Enter that and it should stack to £215.99.

Doesn’t stack for me- nice idea though
Any confirmation it has an IPS panel? I can't find any mention of that anywhere.

Worked for me. No code required for student discount. Just log into UniDays and then add 10% off code (first order) and the price comes down to £215.99

Thank you. Took a while to get this right, but then worked perfectly.
Expired now, missed my chance
Anyone have any joy with getting the right driver installed?

Just plugged and played here, I had a look at their drivers but it just errored about them being unsigned or something - all working fine with plug and play.

Although 75hz refresh has been confirmed by them to not be the case

What drivers? Plug and play. I got 2 and just have a lovely huge desktop space now.
