IPS almost always has horrible backlight bleed also. I tried a couple of 165 Hz IPS 1440p 27"monitors and both got returned. The going rate for a screen of this spec is about £450 if G Sync, less if Free Sync.
Va is generally the cheapest and general terrible motion blur. Ips has better colours than TN but TN has better refresh rates. I hate ghosting and motion blur so I avoid VA like the plague lol.
Wuuut, I always thought it went TN < VA < IPS
Seems to be the cheapest price for this specific monitor so heat. Worth noting it's TN and not VA so that's a bonus.
that is extremely overprived, even over and above the "ROG tax"

FWIW I feel it's pretty unlikely the other user meant simultaneous use by 2 laptops, that would be quite a niche use case. I took it as a dual monitor set up that either a windows or mac laptop can set down, plug into and use ('hot desk' style). For this, solution mentioned (just plug in 2 cables) probably works (easiest) (depending on the ports of the laptops) or a usb hub/dock of some kind (with the monitors plugged into the hub & laptop plugs into hub) (again, care needed with the cables of the respective docking laptops).
Yes, if you have one device with graphics card with mutiple outputs- it is as easy as plug and play. But question was about windows device AND mac device being used on the same two monitors at the same time. Well- I think he meant both monitors being used with both machines simultaneously.....
i actually went with this deal and bought two monitors and i didnt have to do anything, i plugged on in via vga and the other in hdmi and when i turned the pc on it was all set up and i could move my mouse between screens with no hassle
can you remove the stand so it can be on a dual arm with two monitors
Ordered it and I was collecting I realised I forgot to put in the code, they refunded me the difference!(y)

one should be crazy to pay over £1200 for ANY gaming monitor (let alone £1800) ,at that price range you can buy a 48" LG CX OLED for £1500 which is infinitely superior in every way and use it as a gaming monitor.
Wow, should be great for my Nintendo 64
So it seems I've seen used ones sell for more than this, to me it seems lunacy I cant imagine it worth more than 800ish when compared to a 350-400 pound monitor but then I've never had one so curious to find out what's it like

Thanks. Much the same thinking my side. I usually target around 100fps and 120hz-ish. Hopefully it is fixable. Fine monitor.
I've had it on 144Hz since I bought it four years ago. Never bothered to use the 165Hz mode as games I play never reach that high FPS. Brightness has always been about 25 and contrast 50. Probably on about 8+ hours a day.
Strange one. I hope this is not coming to me shortly. Might be an easy fix. Running on any particular settings for rhe majority of its life? 165hz CSGO, etc. Estimated hours on per day? Mine has lived most of the years at 100-120hz and seems happy so far (touch wood)
Don't do it. Spend the extra and get this, with the dedicated g-sync model it will pay for itself in saving you on a gpu upgrade before time :) Get this monitor if you can stretch the budget. You won't regret it.

I presume you work for Amazon? I have purchased multiple items from Currys over the years and have always found their customer service very good.
It doesn't have VESA mount. So you can't take the monitor off it's stand and fix it to a wall or monitor arms clamped to desk. Still a decent monitor for the money if you're not planning on mounting it anywhere.
Looking at the pictures of the back it seems it's not.
It vesa compatible?
Don't buy anything from Amazon, dreadful customer service, especially with recent Redmi Note joke. Aggressive UK tax avoidance. I'd rather support a company who supports the economy fairly

Yeh I've got decent setup not amazing like just a Ryzen and Vega 56 but I'm happy with my cheap 1440p 144hz panel. Games look good enough for me!
Just premium stuff man. Check out lims cave, the monitor is supposedly dope. I've got a £140 electriq one and its great for me, but premium stuff is expensive, and usually better.
Yeh the HSU is the 1080p. I wasn't aware it's TN panel but I briefly used the panel and I thought the picture was great on it.
That one is 1080p and a TN panel, so not comparable to this deal. Edit: actually it's 1440p, apologies, Google lying to me. It is still a TN panel, however.
iiyama GB2760QSU gets my vote if your happy to spend around the £275 mark. If you want cheaper try find the EG 1440p 144hz (ebuyer brand) monitor instead. They regularly go for around £200 mark but the stand is poor and needs replacing with an adjustable VESA mount.

Below average monitor, uses PWM for dimming, avoid at all costs.
I like how you said solid 😏 and thank you. I'm new to pc gaming deals and very much trying to dig out good deals for people. Prior to black friday/cyber Monday if someone is desperate this seems like a reasonable deal. Some may say solid. Thanks for taking the time to comment :)
No idea why this is cold, it’s a solid price for an esports monitor. I would personally pay extra for a VA panel from Samsung/MSI but this is still decent.
Probably Cold cause you get this for over 50 cheaper https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/lenovo-d24f-10-236-inch-fhd-freesync-144hz-1ms-gaming-monitor-10999-at-lenovo-3-years-warranty-3323953
