This is the lowest price I have seen this monitor. Almost £20 cheaper than the previous lowest prices (of £219.99) from Argos, John Lewis, PC World and Amazon in previous weeks.

Thanks. It seems like an almost perfect find but unfortunately they don't offer in-store collection or next day delivery, only the free 5 day delivery. Still, a great price for a well reviewed monitor.

Not bad but I can't help but feel 4k would be better than curved for the price. Curved screens at this price don't really offer much unless maybe you had 3 of them.

The major point of this monitor is the refresh rate, panel type and response time. When 4k/144hz monitors do release later this year they will likely cost near to £2000. A 4k/144hz monitor would be nice for this price, but unfortunately won't available for many years.

Although I do completely agree that the curve isn't of huge benefit for such a small screen size.

I think I've gone blind to it tbh. I have a 4k IPS LG monitor and use my ROG swift as a side monitor which a complete waste really.

Although It's much smoother I prefer the colours of the IPS. The main games I play inc. dota 2 just don't feel different enough to justify using it. CSGO or others fps would be perfect though. Come to think of it, I may as well sell it and get a cheapy side monitor lol
this is the tiniest curved monitor ever.... almost as pointless as the ultrawide with 1080p vertical resolution.

Does it have DisplayPort? My laptop only has a mini Display port and was wondering if could connect to this. Thanks

What's wrong with an ultradwide monitor with 1080 vertical resolution?
Looks like it is the same price at John Lewis but out of stock. But John Lewis has a 2 year warranty, may want to wait.

Nice, I was trying to decide between one of these and the Viewsonic XG2401 on Prime Day, but the only Sammies in the warehouse were scratched all over (and more expensive than this deal). Heat.

Yes and yes. There are more MiniDP to DP cables on Amazon than there are DP to DP! If you intend to hit 144hz though you want to look closely at the product info, quite a number of the cables won't support it (for reasons I can't discover). It's been a thorough pain trying to find a slightly longer DP cable for me lol (the XG comes with a 1.5m cable and I really need about 30cm more (_;) ). I think you could try a Startech cable, I believe they are VESA certified, or maybe look for Bizlink derived cable brands like Accell . I hope that info's good, I was pretty pooped by the time I started finding it!

If in stock that does look like a great deal. What is return policy like at John Lewis, is it as good as Amazon's "no questions asked, we even pay for return shipping" policy?

Ah nice, an even better price then

I've read some people report that text looks funny on this monitor, like grainy/pixelated. Could you confirm or deny that?

all text on witcher 3 goty/skyrim/overwatch/ and about another 35 games ive played in last weeks were perfect bought 50 in steam summer sale
Fair warning about this monitor. Mine has developed a dead pixel after 6 months of use. Samsung wont do anything about it unless its more than 3 pixels.

Not quite as good as before, used to be 90 days, now something like 40 days return policy. I believe returns are free as they supply you with free return postage label, or you can just take it into a store, any branch. I do believe the quality of JL's customer service is quite inconsistent

Makes me wonder if the previous price was clearing old stock, and this higher price is new stock
Edited by: "cascadde" 1st Aug 2017
I ordered on Sunday and have just received a vague text message to say not back in stock until October... not happy!
Read some reviews and for its price it sounds like a cracking monitor so I've ordered the 27 inch one from ebay. Apparently the fact that it's a VA display rather than TN makes a good difference. We shall see! Fingers crossed...
I was lucky and will get mine in august. Ordered Saturday evening. Anyone after that should receive theirs after 6th October - just got off the phone to Argos.

I ordered one and it is new stock as manufacturer date was March 2017, excellent monitor. I wish I had ordered a second with the £10 off Argos voucher now but grateful I got one at this price. I was waiting to see what the monitor was like first before ordering a second as I went through quite a few new monitors lately that I didn't think were worth money paid from 240hz to 4k monitors and finally found one I will keep. The arm works great for keeping cables tidy. Let hope the price comes back down.

Glad to hear you bought one. Ironically, even though I saw the deal first and posted it here, I didn't buy one from Argos as it was oos. I got one from amazon instead and do agree the monitor is great. Mine is from Dec 2016, but I can't see any issues with it so far.

To anyone who bought one through this post - how are you finding your monitor so far?
