Between this and the Lenovo deal, which is better value? And which company do you have better odds with if there's a problem? I had no idea how bad Lenovo customer service was in the UK until I started googling them today :o
So you bought a used one and they didn't check it long enough to find the fault. That happens. I would however second your caution, don't buy stuff from buyitdirect, they're only good is nothing goes wrong. However, if you get a good one of these it's currently top value even at a tenner more than not long ago.
The manual linked on the site gives 650 min / 1000 peak
cant find the nits for it. 400 would be sweet. though in context of oleds being 600-800 and the qleds going from 1000-2000nits
Other end of the price scale but how does this look for HDR1000? https://www.laptopsdirect.ie/electriq-27-qhd-165hz-hdr1000-curved-monitor-eiq-27cvqhd165ifsghld/version.asp
Would deffo consider this if it was 32" size panel, as is would avoid even if taking a punt on ElectriQ brand has served me well in the past!
Yea you have only read the marketing material, it's 4k AND up to 120hz, not together. And the bit above isn't true either, things will have to scaled back on 4k with a console even to get to 4k. So it's very possible, that to get the game to run at 4k, the textures will have to scaled back so much that it's 4k in name only. Do some research, a decent 1440p monitor will be better than this for a console. The PlayStation, at least at the monitor is even worse as you only get 1080p or 4k - weather that will change is yet to be seen.
I'm sure it will look better for a specific kind of game 😁 the RPG/RTS/platformer/casual games won't care for more than 60hz anyway and will benefit from the 4 times more screen real estate of 4k I really can't comment more on the 4k/120hz. It's what's advertised but I haven't delved into the issue so I trust your analysis on that subject
can you show me where its advertised that any game is benefiting from 4k with 120hz (up to 120fps) please? You may want to read up on what hardware is required to get anywhere near there. Back to my original point, if you have the money to spend on a 4k/120/144hz monitor, by all means - but don't buy a budget monitor when you get a fairly decent 1440p/120/144hz monitor instead which will look better than this. Its a no brainer really.
I disagree. Many games benefit more from res than frame rate. Also if you have a 4k monitor, you're not capped while at 1440p you'll always be wondering if the game could look better. And I'm still not convinced the series X can't do the 4k/120hz as advertised
There's certain companies such as EG group, McDonald's, Coral Ladbrokes etc. allow you to buy love2shop flexicard if you work for them. So basically if you work for them you can top up/buy gift cards with 7-8% discount and use them on various retailers websites or shops such as currys, argos etc. In my case I ordered a £1500 gift card and only paid £1,395 which is 7% discount.
very nice, how do u get this discount? do u work for them as i cant see them on perksat work etc
Thanks OP. price matched with Currys and 7% work discount on top..
Anyone have a problem with them cutting out? The are connected all the time but sometimes they just pause and play and then pause again couple of times as if they were touched...
I have this and use it for work and it’s been great. The extra screen space has been so handy!
Yep. HDMI assuming your laptop has a HDMI port.
Then it’s not for you. There’s a myriad of examples of why these are great for “work” such as reference images and your “work” side by side with plenty of room There are many more better examples as well. I use this for “work” and it’s handy ;)
What cable would I need to use this with a laptop and put the laptop screen onto the monitor? Would it be HDMI?
Had this for a while. Not at all good for productivity. It’s essentially a widened 24” 1080p monitor.
I have older model of this- absolutely gorgeous....but I don’t personally like wide monitors...
Lg have 250 and 300 nit (cd /m2) ultra wide monitors. Because of the anti glare coating which reduces brightness a little, I recommend paying a little more for a 300 nit panel
Damn that's a good deal
Very good monitor for productivity with a bit of gaming on the side. I've had mine for about 18 months and it's been great! I'm now pretty hooked on ultrawide monitors and looking to get something a little bigger. This 29" is about the height of a regular (16:9) monitor that I have it sitting next to.
i know, i bought the other 31.5 monitor with 165hz
This monitor doesn't do 120fps 🥶
Suggest you edit your comment as it was Amazon cockup and LaptopsDirect have compensated you plus refunded the delivery fee. I have used them direct twice over the last 2 years and always had good service. The Electriq monitor I ordered works well albeit no frills - may be about to order a 4K monitor soon from them.
(lol) (lol) (lol) to be fair they have refunded me the delivery fee plus £30 and apparently Amazon sent the screen to the wrong depot :o as I paid through Amazon pay they are the ones delivering it (hopefully will arrive tomorrow so I can start gaming at 120 FPS :D
Lmao just clicked into this and was thinking of you as I was looking at the comments. (lol)
