    Did your monitor arrive? Interested to hear your impressions and whether the panel has any defects. Thanks

    Looking like I will be getting one directly next week, spoke to live chat and they are giving me a really good deal (£849 which is insane), so hoping they can keep that offer for me for another week, the guy on live chat certainly said he could. Just needing to wait on a refund coming through. The wait is killing me!

    I really want to wait out for the LG 35GK950G, but £849 is an awesome price! Very tempting...

    I have tried multiple times and I cannot get them below 999. I would snap one up at 850.

    The reps come out with such tripe it is almost laughable

    Hello! It did indeed, the panel is fantastic. No problems with it whatsoever, I must be quite lucky in that regard as a few people have mentioned yellowing and bleeding.

    Overall very impressed with it, you couldn’t ask for anything more than what this monitor is to offer in my opinion. Managed to get it for £829 delivered, unbelievable price!

    Been looking at this the last couple of days and I am so tempted. £829-£850 is a steal if I can get them that low.

    What cards do you guys run with this? I have just a 1080 and want to make sure I'd be able to play most games at the 100-120hz.

    Once I get one I will be using a 1080Ti. Using it with my rog swift at the moment and occassionally on my 4k monitor and the 1080Ti does a great job.

    I'm running only two 980Ti's, manage to get the 100-120 fps without much of an issue on most games.

    Does anyone have their Dell quote number for the monitor at £829 or even £850? Want to try with Dell chat.

    Thanks for the update.

    Do you use it with a second monitor? Notice any yellow whites at all? May be more obvious when compared to a 2nd monitor.

    I keep getting used to it and then sometimes everything seems quite yellow. I did a Spyder Calibration and it did seem to improve matters.

    Thanks

    Ordered mine yesterday, estimated delivery in mid-March. I'm hoping it comes quicker than that!

    So tempted to buy this but not sure IPS is good for movies, windowed games and netflix.

    I’m using a 1080p monitor as my second one. I haven’t been noticing any yellow lines at all, that’s very unusual.

    Have you found anyone else complaining of this issue?

    £890 all in, inc VAT and delivery.

    I bought it there and then on the live chat, so never received a quote reference unfortunately.

    Edit: I'm conscious that I may be flying close to the wind on the OCUK forum rules. If I am, I'm sorry mods!

    It's arrived... to my work... the box utterly massive. Do not have this thing delivered to work!
