That is interesting matt, so even though gamers want the best of the best, they are using a resolution that a 4k uhd can better by over 3 times? Would it not just jump to 240Hz and above for 4k / 5k ones this year & next, save having to play and squint as the screen is only 24" big ? Thanks for the info by the way.



The bigger the screen the more area you have to look to see someone shooting at you.

I use a large screen for work and a 24" at 144Hz for playing games.

The decision for most competitive pc gamers is 1440p 165Hz versus 1080p …The decision for most competitive pc gamers is 1440p 165Hz versus 1080p 240Hz. We should see 1440p 240Hz later this year too which would be the perfect middle ground for those that play fast paced shooters. This Alienware screen is definitely geared toward a very niche audience in that respect with it's 1080p resolution, most would be happier with the higher 1440p resolution and added desktop real estate for sure.2160p/4k and 120Hz will be hitting the market soon (including nvidia's bfgd screens), but they'll all have pretty hefty early adopter price tags to boot. My hope is those screens will allow you to run at a higher than 120Hz refresh rate below 4k resolution, since higher Hz will always be better depending on the panel type (more fps/hz = less input lag = more responsive mouse), but that hasn't been confirmed.I suppose it depends on who's buying and for what purpose!

Input lag/response time and peripheral vision will be crucial factors. …Input lag/response time and peripheral vision will be crucial factors. Albeit, not as important as refresh rate. The sweet spot for gaming atm is 27” 1440p 144hz until 4k 144hz monitors are widely available. 1080p 240hz are for the very hardcore gamers who prioritise framerate above everything else.

1080p60hz the gold standard in PC gaming? Even for 60hz 1440p has been around for a long while now. It's not that 60hz isn't playable but for fast twitch shooters where you are using a mouse to control your view there is a very noticeable difference dropping from 120hz to 60hz. If you are using analog sticks on a joypad the difference is way less apparent. There are still plenty of games I will chose to play on a tv at 60hz rather than 144hz on my monitor.

A 1080ti will hit 144hz in most pvp twitch shooters at 1440p at high or max settings paired with the right cpu. Although in competitive shooters people tend to run lower settings for general increased visibility and also to get reduced input lag from a higher frame rate anyhow.

From what I've heard, 25fps with gsync still feels like 25fps...in other …From what I've heard, 25fps with gsync still feels like 25fps...in other words, terrible


You are right 25fps is 25fps, however games do not run at an exact frame rate, it varies as you play. When this happens it causes frame stutter because of the difference between the frame and the refresh rate of the monitor. GSync matches the monitor refresh rate to the games frame rate so all gameplay is smooth without stutter This allows you to play games with up to 120fps and you will get no frame stutter. You do not need performance hindering vsync anymore freeing up more power and you will get no more screen tearing.

What this also means is that you do not have to have super powerful GPU's anymore that have to hit frame rates much higher than what you would like to achieve for a smooth experience. Now you can have lower powered cards like the 1060 running at max efficiency where the frame rate will be vary between 60and 120fps and have a silky smooth gaming experience.

If you have a card which can hit frame rates of over 60 which the 1060 can on most, if not all games then those frames are completely wasted on a 60hz panel.

120hz GSync is a game changer
Edited by: "scottydd" 6th Dec 2017
Anyone that is worried about the MaxQ shouldn't be, the real world difference between this and the full fat version is negligible, only on certain games is there a difference of 3fps. If this is not good enough for you either then you will also be happy to know that you can overclock this GPU and increase its clock by 100-200 easily. Putting it back to full fat.

Personally, I would consider manually upgrading to a 120Hz panel, but you'd lose the G-Sync (which is probably not an issue when gaming at 120fps).


While this is true, it does provide longevity to the laptop. 1070 may be overkill now, but 3-4 years down the road and it will still be able to play new games at very good settings. But still, I'd rather build 2 gaming PC's that can run more powerful than this laptop because I love building especially on a budget haha

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.

There is no 1ms monitors.

There is no standard measurement for response time. All manufacturers measure it differently.

Most measure from one shade of grey to another shade of grey and call that 1ms. When really if they measured the change from black to white it would be like 10ms+

Basically just read actual reviews instead of looking at made up specs.

Went for the dell s1271G after reading countless reviews on this brand, seems to be a lottery gamble if you get a good panel without the major bleed.

The flickering is completely random. There is no pattern of why or when it pops up. Also, it appears for a fraction of a second and does not cover across the entire screen. Like, you would only see lines on one side of the screen for a split-second then it disappears. Sometimes, you won't see anything for days and sometimes you would experience it multiple times in an hour.

£570 for a monitor?! No wonder console players make fun of us PC players …£570 for a monitor?! No wonder console players make fun of us PC players when we have displays twice as expensive as their entire rig!On a more serious note, what is it about GSync and IPS that make this so good? I myself have a 144Hz BenQ monitor which I don't see myself upgrading, probably ever.


I never used a g sync monitor mate. Been reading about it for a long time now and took the plunge. Regarding IPS, I got a dell monitor now that used IPS panel and the colours are sharper. You do get good TN panel but they cost near the same as the IPS so you might aswell go for the IPS. Thanks for your reply though. Appreciate everyone’s input

This is on their ebay page as well for £269.97 (I got it within a day - ordered before I realised that Laptopdirect was slightly cheaper - but I wonder if their main site uses slower ship options?) ebay.co.uk/itm…918

Was around £40 cheaper a few weeks back, though
Now have my PC setup with this monitor deal and it looks beautiful! A tiny un-noticable bit of back light bleed unless looking from sides on a black screen. A bit of flickering that I've already gotten used to, I highly recommend this monitor! Some people may have more severe back light bleeding, but I've been really lucky! I find the curved screen really immersive!

"I found" --> your experience does not line up with everyone else's. You don't need to put people down to back up your own opinion either calling it the clear choice as even your own explanation of why it is better is critically flawed (running downscaled to 1080p with a 1440p monitor does not have perfect scaling and objectively will look worse than a straight 1080p monitor). And this is coming from someone who yet again can't stand using 1080p monitors... Take a moment to reflect :)It's amazing how people can get this wound up over a rather good judging from the heat deal.

I agree that 1080p on 27" is too pixelated, particularly noticeable outside of games during graphics and word processing use. 1080p at 27" is 2010 spec. In my experience, I find 1080p fine up to 24". The statement "Many 27" monitors have native resolutions of 2560x1440 and hence operate at 1440p."... is even found on the "1080p" wikipedia entry!

It's garbage and one of those Elitist comments that some cool kid on a forum once said, and all the little brown nosers follow suit. 1080p is absolutely fine at 27" and means an average card is capable of 144fps in more games at high settings.

Nah. I paid £10 more than the OP for the 1440p version of this screen. Cold deal.

Update on my dead pixel Y27g RE: Lenovo took forever to get back to me, my mobile phone died weeks ago (waiting for the Axon 7), they didn't leave landline answer machine messages. Eventually I got an email and they sorted the Warranty Replacement (initially asking me to get in touch with Laptopsdirect, who no longer stock this). Next thing I heard, I got an email with a UPS tracking link, the subject line stating it was a "replacement".

Great, though communication was terrible - they didn't tell me how to process the return or even email return postage labels/invoices to sign. Got the UPS guy to open the new monitor's box yesterday - all the documentation was in there.

Later I discovered it came with a North American plug!..managed to dig out an old laptop cloverleaf/UK plug that worked.

Thankfully, the replacement has no dead pixels and the lights at the back glow without Razer products connected - maybe my first monitor was more "broken" than I thought, as the lights didn't work

TL;DR: Lenovo's Warranty is excellent, communication is poor.

I set my monitor up two nights ago (the arrival of my new nephew mucked things up a bit)...all good, went through a quick multi-colour screen check to look for dead pixels, tweaked settings to make the screen look how I liked, registered on the Lenovo website, downloaded monitor utility programs, went to bed.

Get up yesterday morning and there's a dead/stuck pixel in the middle of the screen!! I don't have experience of these - I assumed dead pixels were usually there out the box...maybe they appear over time, too? I don't think I'm that unobservant that I wouldn't have noticed straightaway.

Laptopsdirect don't have the RE version in stock, so I've opened a Technical Support ticket with Lenovo. Apparently their policy is three dead pixels or more..we'll see.

I remember one reviewer said they received a review unit that had dead pixels, which could just be bad luck - I'm sure if it was a recurring problem with this model it would be all over the net!

Edit: I've tried many "stuck pixel fix" epilepsy-inducing programs. Apparently a dead pixel can't be fixed but a stuck pixel can..I think!

The dodgy pixel's in the middle of the screen - I've read, depending on manufacturer, if it's in the corners you're out of luck, but otherwise you can RMA.

After peering closely, the pixel appears to be Red? which could suggest it's a stuck pixel - apparently dead pixels are Black and stay that way (?).

Another Edit: When checking Warranty Status - you may find it states a date in the past (apparently Lenovo go by the base/when it left the factory date - in my case October 2016) - which only gives me 2 of the 3 Years Warranty. You can request to update it by submitting proof of purchase support.lenovo.com/ch/…121

The Warranty sounds pretty good (though s'pose it's dependent on their pixel policy):
"This product has a three year limited warranty and is entitled to Advanced Exchange Warranty Service via Courier. A replacement Monitor will be delivered to your location after phone based problem determination and the defective Monitor returned to Lenovo."
