Shame the BenQ doesn't have Freesync or it might be a contender for me.
Not sure if I am breaking any rules here, but I spoke to a another shop and they confirmed to me that they currently hold the stock for the monitor but that they can't release it yet because AOC have not confirmed the date they can do this. I am not sure if OCUK is in a similar situation. My pre order is still with OCUK.
I work with AOC directly, there is no NDA or rules regarding selling this monitor. So if they had stock they could sell it and ship today.
Speaking with AOC today, they informed me there has being a logistic problem and out of the 3000 coming to the UK that now only 500 will come early December all of which will come to OcUK and the rest will follow later in the month to competitors.
I trust my guy at AOC, so trust this to be the case and to my knowledge no promotional stock has shipped yet.
What this competitor might mean is they have some stock purchased at old pricing and are requesting support from AOC to be able to sell it below cost without making a loss, thats the only explanation I can think off.
How many do you recon you’ve sold @Gibbo, l’m hoping to be one of the 500
Wouldn't surprise me if the lot sold out, or at least close to it. An excellent deal.
Nearly 200 now, it is very popular as it does 75Hz on both NV and AMD GPU's. Supports FREESYNC on AMD and is just a great gaming panel, perfect size and resolution for gaming really and there is nothing else around £200 with this specification and the excellent warranty and service that AOC supply for 3 years.
I think i'm going to grab one of these for the time being, need to upgrade from a 10 year old samsung syncmaster (an amazing B grade overclockers deal!)
I would love to spend out some money on a decent screen but the amount of dice rolling that seems to be going on is ridiculous
Just seen Gibbo’s reply, hopefully in with a chance
Thanks Gibbo, just need a GPU later to take a advantage of the 75hz (not sure if onboard will cope)
Ordered based on the above early December arrival
200 sold, 500 coming, I'm liking those odds of getting mine in the next week or 2
I want it now
Early Christmas present.
I don't think AOC is holding back any European shop from selling the monitors that are in stock.
The monitor has already been on sale in Switzerland and in the Netherlands (there are user reviews on tweakers.net)..
Thanks for the order, 220 pre-sold now.
I've been using my new HDR TV a lot which uses a VA panel and it made be realise how dull my IPS monitor is. Initially started looking at 27" 1440p monitors, but none are available with VA panels, and I hate TN panels more than IPS.
Then I found this. It's bigger than what I wanted, but having just grabbed the Phanteks Enthoo Pro M Special Edition at £85, it's given me more space on the desk, so decided to order it anyway. Bigger, higher res, higher refresh rate and a VA panel compared to my current monitor and for the price, I felt I'd be stupid not to.
Just hope I've got within the first 500 coming to OcUK, that was the decider for where to get it from.
Yes we've sold less than 250 so far, so still another 250+ to go.
Awesome, thanks. Look forward to receiving it.
These are still on offer and I have an important question to ask!
Just bought a 1070Ti on the BF deal so want to start playing in 1440p.
Currently have the AOC 2460pg G-sync monitor. Its been great, but is only 1080.
Am i going to miss GSYNC and thw 144hz refresh rate? Is it going to be glaringly obvious to me?
27" would be a sweet spot for me, but we're talking 500 sheets for a decent GSYNC alternative.
Just cancelled my order with Amazon and ordered with you on the back of earlier post, lets hope this is delivered soon as cant wait.
You could try turning off G-sync and dropping your refresh rate, or capping FPS to 75 Hz and see how it feels?
I feel like a right muppet now! I'll give that a bash!
How about response time - do you think i'll notice the drop from 1ms to 4ms?
