Hi,

Thanks op, bought one of these yesterday, used code FREE200 and got free next day delivery.

Its now sat on my desk and I am very happy with it. I have moved from a 22inch IPS 1920 X 1080 so obviously quite a difference and a bit of a wow factor.

Menus are a bit of a faff but you soon get the idea.

Overall if you are looking for a decent 27 inch screen then I would certainly consider this if you don't have £600 to spend on a G-sync 120+mhz one.

Unless you have a tin ear the speakers are completely pointless, but having audio does mean they decided to give it a line-in and line-out. Got my pc plugged into displayport, ps4 into the hdmi, then connected the line-out to a line-in on my pc to use my proper pc speakers.Just a heads up though, there have been issues on models with early firmware, using the displayport might be hit and miss at best, depending on your gpu. I had problems briefly with a gtx 970. Couldn't tell you what firmware version this model uses, mind. I got the GW2765HT from Amazon warehouse for £180 with the black friday 20% off.And for those who aren't as tedious and with as much spare time as me, this is probably the best quality 27" 1440p monitor posted so far. Very functional, good refresh rates, fantastic contrast. The colour gamut is very wide. It has 100% sRGB. Very useful colour temperature settings, but pick between using the eye strain settings here or on windows 10 or with flux. With none of the monitor options turned on I found it a bit too bright though. Great stand, full tilt and swivel, although on a small desk you'll wish the stand wasn't so deep so you could push it back further.At this price you can't complain that it's only 60hz. High frame rate high resolution ips panels didn't even exist until the last few years. I'd much rather this than another of those ebay korean monstrosities, the one I used to own broke when the cheap soldering melted and shorted out the circuit board.On a side note, make sure it's set to full range rgb (0-255) in the settings if you want it to look the nicest as a monitor.


"ebay korean monstrosities, the one I used to own broke when the cheap soldering melted and shorted out the circuit board". Agreed. I had the same issue. I had two, one second hand that is still going strong and a brand new that has already has the board replaced then broke again, hence giving up and doing hours of research to now buy this one. Although the Crossovers do are brilliant monitors (well, amazing panels but crappy cheap boards) I have learnt our lesson as getting replacement parts is a nightmare (plus expensive with import taxes). The hubby said I should pop the broken Crossover on ebay this weekend and I may do, as they do have a good following, and there maybe someone out there who can fix it themselves as its too heartbreaking to just bin it. But I am on day 2 now with this monitor and I am very, very impressed.

I bought that very monitor (AOC) for my brother in-law at the weekend for £78 from Amazon warehouse.

Seemed like it might have been a mistaken price match reduction, as Amazon's price has always been significantly higher.

Can't review the monitor as I've only had a few moments with it, but I will say that I wouldn't touch that Chinese seller.
They're shipping from China, so import fees are possible, their reviews are bad, and they're undercutting every seller on Amazon.

On top of that its got a 75hz so that allows for 15 more fps to be displayed if youve got the hardware to back it up. My only concerned with the AOC is that its being sold by a 3rd party seller. If you do order it keep an eye out for blemishes or anything that doesnt feel right.

But she's happy and she doesn't have great eyesight so lower 'full hd' resolutions are fine. If she had a 4k screen she'd crank up the zoom to see the characters and end up with Lego-vision

I just bought this monitor for £379.99 from Very, neglecting the fact it was QHD 1440p.

Videos and streaming stuff through my laptop looks great and it's quick and snappy when playing games.

However, I mainly use it for console gaming and as the PS4 doesn't output 1440p natively, it has to upscale 1080p which looks awfully blurry, almost looks 720p.

I could probably live with it, if it would have been a cheaper monitor but not for this price.

I've bought a 1080p curved Acer instead. ED322Q I think. £130 cheaper too, it was OOS orginally as it was the one I wanted at first so I settled for the Omen instead.

Also, for the 3 days I was using it I got terrible eye strain/headaches and I've read others say the same. Something to do with PWM (I think)

1070, 1080, FreeSync range?


Exactly. You can only operate in FreeSync range with cards that don't work with FS.

@mazymony Good luck getting a Vega 64 for under £600! A 580 absolutely isn't fine for the majority of mainstream games that have come out in the last two years, c.f. anandtech.com/ben…868 I also know that because I have an overclocked 290x that's roughly the same performance as a 580. It absolutely isn't good enough to stay in Freesync range at 1440p, even in older games like Borderlands 2.


That's also not to mention the problem with most higher end AMD cards where they struggle to maintain fps consistency compared to similar nvidia cards, going back to the lack of LFC on this monitor.

I've always bought AMD/ATI going back to the early 00s, but the 3 generations between the 2** series and Vega are a joke. Almost zero progress.
Edited by: "khamito" 26th Nov 2017
I had this monitor and did some extensive testing on it. It has about 50ms input latency, which is about 3 frames. I was coming from a 10ms ultrawide and I could definitely tell the difference (I'd miss-time my jumps in Dying Light, for example). There's also pretty bad pixel persistence, so fast moving images make everything very blurry. If you can live with these things, it's a good monitor. It also stutters at 75Hz on nvidia GPUs so you have to drop to 60. I personally got a 32 inch Viewsonic 60Hz IPS monitor and it completely blows it out of the water!

You need an AMD card for Freesync. For the latest games, a 64 for max settings but with lighter games a 580 would be fine.

Reading between lines from my searches.
I have a 6gb 1060 nvida card and a Ryzen 1600. From what I have read the suggestion is the 1060 won't likely reach the 144 FPS with full graphics. Also it's suggested 1080p works better at 24 inches compared to 27 inches.

I note John Lewis were selling this for £139 a year ago making me this could be over priced for a 4 year old monitor. I wonder if a 75hz monitor at 24 inches may be better for me. Albeit this looks to be a great monitor.

Question is in 5-10 years time will I keep this 1060 card? It's only 1-2 months old.

You'll need it for games that run over 60FPS.If you are not bothered about the refresh rate then a cheaper model might do. I am wondering if I should go 24 or 27 inch.


Depends on your setup. Will it be your only monitor or secondary? If its a single monitor setup I would go for 27". Personally I have a 29" ultra wide for primary and a 24" secondary above which works well for me.

I want it
Everyone will tell you that this monitor is pretty low-tier and has terrible colours, which I would have to agree with. If you don't have a really nice IPS monitor already, its really not that noticeable after playing with the settings. But, if you play any competitive FPS games I can't recommend enough the jump to 144hz, which for this price is so worth it!
I managed to get this on prime day for £136 and what an absolute game changer going from a 1920x1080 60Hz monitor to 144Hz. Games look absolute fantastic and worth every penny. Perfect if you are on a budget and couldnt push to a 1440 144Hz Monitor. have some heat OP!

Tip: TO get 144Hz oddly you NEED to use the DVI port and change the settings in your graphics card software (mine was Nvidia).

?Is there any point getting this if I have an NVIDIA card?


You can still play at 1080p 144Hz, just not with Freesync. But yes, this is a good budget 144Hz monitor that'll definitely be a good purchase for you if you don't want to spend £300+ on a G-sync monitor.

No, I don't. Check my post history - I post deals on a variety of websites. I'm posting these LaptopsDirect deals because they're good deals (this is the site for it, isn't it?), which I've found through browsing through familiar websites (eBuyer, Amazon, LaptopsDirect, Saveonlaptops, Scan, Novatech etc).

None dark scenes look incredible though.


Shame about the glow, it's not a defect but it can be extremely severe on some panels.

Yeah I've also got an Nvidia card but to be honest I play with V sync off for everything and don't notice any screen tearing at all (Recently been playing AC Origins) so I don't miss G sync *too* much.

It's a 2 year old model, but I'm not sure technology/price has improved that much during that time.

I'm holding out for a deal on a MG279Q (which is IPS rather than TN).

Ordered it yesterday, even though out of stock... hopefully they'll get more stock soon.

I see the price is up to £499.99 today, so marked as expired.
Had been looking at this for quite a while and finally too the plunge Friday (and got it by Saturday!!), it's an amazing monitor and this price is the second cheapest new.

My only complaint is that I think it has a dead pixel... now and again one turns red... i poke it and it goes away for a while... but i might send it back and ask for another.
If this is anything like the 1080p model then it will lose its memory if you turn off the screen. You can save it to a preset but you have to change it to that profile manually each time you turn the monitor on. The standby rotates colours when off so it's pretty much necessary to turn it off unless you want a light show.

If anyone can confirm if this model still has that problem then it would be great.

EDIT: Found a way to fix it! Press and hold the menu button and button above it together and it will take the monitor out of 'factory' mode.

Is it worth getting? Especially a TN panel for this price?


Depends if you want more eye candy or quicker speed. This monitor's settings will need to be adjusted out of the box to make it pop, but I am very happy with it.

X27 is coming soon but it'll be expensive to start with. It's basically the pinnacle of current technology. You probably won't get one below £1000.

Same here. Got mine back in 2014 and it remains one of the most impressive purchases I ever made. We used it yesterday to watch Blue Planet II. It has many many years of life left in it.
Got mine on the mantel piece, wall opposite is about 12 feet away, 30 year old Sony amp is wired up, I get an image about 110 inches wide by about 60 inches deep.

Image is straight on the wall
