Actually the iMac speakers are much bigger than you would actually think they are based on the grills. And you need to remember that what is considered a small computer is a bulky monitor so they actually have more room to play while also having customers who are largely price insensitive so if the speakers cost much more its fine those prices can be passed on. Monitor buyers are more price sensative especially at the lower end who are the ones who want speakers in the monitor. If it adds just £5 to the build cost for something that's little utilised it can push it into a new price bracket

Great price for a not bad monitor
Looks great value!
Great deal
Nice monitor. Thanks
I'd grab it if I didn't already have a monitor. Heat 🔥

Monitor speakers are horrible. Just get some desktop speakers. There's a 3.5mm audio jack on the monitor.

That's because they are awful so hardly anyone will use them. Monitors just have way too thin bezels to leave room for anything sounding even passable so it's not worth the extra cost
Amazing deal - I'd get one if I had the money! Heat added.

I agree with @PlezStahp in that monitor speakers are pretty much always absolute rubbish. Distortion at high volumes, lacking bass and clarity. No way you could expect to game online and play well in FPS games imo.

There's normally either digital output Io on the PS4 or desktop so you could use much better speakers or even 3.1 etc you'll get way better value for money that way.
Nice!
Nah, my current monitor which I've had for 5 years is actually a 23 inch TV / monitor so it has really good speakers. 2 x 5W along the bottom of the screen, means the thickness of the bezel along the bottom is 2cm though, but I dont mind that as it is proper loud. Just to give an indication, I keep the volume at 17-20 out of 100

So they can make them if they want to, it just seems a trend to make screens as thin as possible these days so they leave the speakers off. Even the big TVs have no speakers these days as you have to buy a soundbar.

I don't really want to buy separate speakers as my desk has a desktop, ps4 and a printer, there really isnt room to add separate speakers.

I can't believe none of the big brands make monitors with proper speakers anymore

Headphones are probably you're best bet, then. Not always practical. I'd find a way to make a bit of room. Desktop speakers don't have a large footprint.

Not really, its an extra plug socket and more wires. You might say get USB powered ones, but then I'd be constantly swapping them between the computer and the ps4.

I've actually spent about 5 hours looking for a monitor with speakers and eventually settled for a 27 inch Iiyama G-Master black hawk one for £139.99. Its got 2 x 2W speakers so it wont be as loud as my current monitor, but I got fed up of looking

That's the thing though you are using what is a TV as a monitor. They have a different set of requirements. A panel for a dedicated monitor is usually more expensive than one for a TV as a monitor needs higher spec (it's why hooking a pc upto most TVs for something like gaming isn't the best experience). And a TV usually gets away with being a bit bigger and bigger bezels so has more room for speakers. It's also 5 year old so will also be more bulky.

So it's an expense that has to see compromises in areas people generally want for something that most people won't use (most gave speakers or more likely on a computer headphones). Its just not worth either upping the price or cutting out other features


Oh and all TVs have speakers apart from the LG wallpaper one which comes with a soubdbar

'Not really' what? :/

Feel like you'll be missing out with 2W internal speakers.

Sounds like you've got your heart set on that route. Hope it works out for you.

I watched this review before buying, the chap said its got decent quality sound.

youtube.com/wat…d8A

I could always buy external speakers afterwards if the internal arent good
Saw a couple of reviews on YouTube and some users said the monitor has frame skipping at 144hz but is fine at 120hz. If anyone can confirm this is true becuase I really wanted to order this.

What's cool is that I think the older iMac models used to come wih a passthrough slot so you could continue using them as monitors long after the computer had become outdated.

See this support thread for the status of the issue. forums.lenovo.com/t5/…320

It certainly appears to have been an issue for those with Nvidia cards, but Lenovo have a fix in the form of a firmware update (which only they can apply). The support staff on their forums made the following comment:

If you're buying a new monitor, it depends on from where you buy it and what batch it is. The latest monitors which are getting out of factory do have this new firmware already, but older pieces sitting in some storage will surely come with the old one.

It will therefore be luck of the draw I'm afraid, but may be worth asking the Lenovo site directly what the date of manufacture is for their stock.
Does this have 2 HDMI ports? can't find what ports it has on the website
Amazing price for a 144hz Freesync and 1ms to boot.
this seems in an incredible price I just bought a 144hz monitor and am going to buy this too
actually maybe not. Just phoned them as getting an error checking out.

this is OOS

Own one myself, it has one HDMI and one displayport
A_Rom25/05/2019 10:27

Has anyone tested GSync with this?


TL;DR
Yes, it worked. Literally just go into nvidia settings and enable it for this screen.


The Long part:

1080Ti works at full 144Hz with freesync definitely working. Tested on Destiny 2 and Dirt Rally 2 initially.
Sadly 144Hz + Freesync + nvidia borderless triple surround didn't happen... I was clearly pushing my luck.
I haven't had much luck using custom profiles to overclock the screen, could have had something to do with having a multi-monitor setup.

Some people have had issues with frameskipping on windows at 144Hz. This has been hit and miss for me. I initially saw it with a 980Ti, but the 1080Ti didn't exhibit it when I checked. But I have no way of knowing whether there was a bad config in windows for instance.

Be sure to jump onto testufo.com/fra…ing and see that your system is running well.
Many things can mess with this test, so I recommend from a clean boot running chrome without anything else going on. Kill auto startup programs and just let the page stabilise before deciding that your screen isn't running properly.
There was a link on lenovo forums for this sceren for an updated firmware when I got mine. (Don't have link to hand), no idea if it actually helped.

I paid a bit more than this per screen, and am very happy.
One note that just came to mind: I went from a 4k IPS screen that was so-so, not too bad on backlighting and colour etc.
I had to tip the screen down a couple degrees to improve the black. Clearly a TN screen.

On my system, for some reason, the screen looks crap when running at 60Hz. So if it looks all washed out a crap, just get into the nvidia (in my case) control panel and make sure it's on the correct settings. I only tested 100Hz. 120Hz and 144Hz, they all looked better from colour point of view than 60Hz. Didn't investigate further, I was never going to use it a low refresh settings. And no, this issue did not occur when running freesync and the dynamic refresh dropped low.

Oh, and I can't percieve an improvement with HDR on... Which only works on HDMI, which only does upto 120Hz (iirc).

Like a lot of people have said, until you use a high refresh screen, you won't know what you're missing out on. The detail you can pick up on moving images when using high refresh is fantastic and really makes everything look clearer. Watching the trees pass close to the camera in dirt rally is vastly improved. I can't wait for affordable 4k 144Hz and GPUs to match!

Figured I should pick this one up too. Yep, that was the forum post I didn't have the link for. So thanks for already posting.
Secondly, I definitely had the frameskipping issue.
But have since got rid of it, can't be sure what fixed it. But at the least, I did go from a 980Ti to a 1080Ti. It could be driver related, config changes when doing a reinstall of the display driver, etc.

But it definitely did go away, and definitely on the same display. I did install the driver referenced in that post (forums.lenovo.com/t5/…e/2)
but still, YMMV.
There are some issues with this monitor, so I would suggest that you take a look here:
