Have you confirmed your student email address?
Yeah, phoned up today and she said she'd try to ship it out today or tomorrow, which is annoying.
Mine took a while to process for some reason. Just had someone call me up and basically confirm my email. Then it was sorted and has arrived! The box is HUGE, but what a beautiful monitor. May have to dip in for a 2nd or wait for a 950 to accompany it.
I logged in to bluelight with my nhs email, I only see 10% off codes?
edit: I'm a muppet, it's the accessories section
20% for NHS staff makes this a damn epic deal
Order confirmed at £639.97
I hope it's better than my Dell 2407WFP from 11 years ago
Has anyone returned one of these monitors within 14 days? Was it a painless process?
So close to buying one of these, just trying to find a mate who qualifies for this 20% discount.
No one seems to have had much negative to say about the monitor which is a good sign I guess
Here are a few snaps of my new monitor. It's in a huge box and the thing is quite large, the stand isn't as bad as I expected though I want to get a monitor arm eventually.
Initial set up
Some backlight bleed. I wouldn't say it's as bad as the picture, however it is probably more like this.
Out of the box I noticed some dead pixels and freaked out, there was one right in the middle, and several others around the middle/left area. Checking the backlight bleed test and doing the brush/tap trick, I think it cleared all of them, or at least the ones that are really a problem.
For this kind of money (even with such a good sale!) you'd think they would find a way to produce panels without such faults.
The IPS glow is quite bad however, watching some YouTube trailers in 4K 21:9, the beauty of OLED displays really makes this look like hot garbage in comparison. Though it doesn't bother me too much, I hope it's the last LCD monitor I ever get and the next ones will be micro-LED.
Edit: My 980Ti is severly underpowered, can't wait until the 1180 is released!
Just bought this, hoping my Strix 1070 OC will be handle things OK if a dial back some settings.
ETA 17th, but I'm away on holiday until 19th. Do I have any options or is one of my neighbours going to have to take in this beast?
Fast delivery ! sitting nice
Absolutely love mine. Zero dead pixels, minimal BLB and IPS glow. 1080Ti running well, monitor is simple beautiful. Fantastic buy at £720
Guys how is it the AlienFX ?? does it work like the Phillips Ambilight?
What about the returns ? the package must be massive, do you have to carry it yourself to the closest post office or can you arrange the pick up ?
Mine arrives tomorrow and I cannot wait!! It's going to make me want a GPU upgrade but I must resist....
That is the problem i have i want to buy both at the same time, gtx 1180 and an ultrawide 1440p, the problem is the more i wait for the monitor the cheapest it will be with the new models coming in etc, but i am worried that the Dell will become out of stock and they will have only the new models..
Just ordered this badboy with NHS discount , £639 , cant go wrong at that price !!
I'm trying to track my monitor, it says "order shipped" with :
Package 1 SYNE click here
I then click, enter my customer number and nothing happens.
What am I missing?
there should be 2 numbers you need to track. It took 24 hours to get mine to me.
Couldn't resist as I got the 20% off discount
Now to try and sell my Dell S2716DG!
Does this monitpr support 1:1 pixel mapping?
So if a game doesn't support 21:9 you can just run it at 2560x1440 instead (with black side bars of course).
