    I would prefer 144hz/1080p G-Sync to 75hz/1440p. But it does depend on which games you play, if you play a lot of fast-paced FPS games the difference will be more noticeable.

    I pretty much play just FPS (PUBG CSGO etc).... it's a great deal, but i've got an inkling i'll "notice". Might just have to save my pennies...... but it is cheap. urgh....

    I guess it depends how sensitive you are to that sort of thing. The display has an overdrive option, it's talked about in this youtube review:

    For PUBG, CSGO etc I wouldn't upgrade. Would be a downgrade in my view.

    @Gibbo, Or Anyone - Does anyone know the height of this monitor from base to the top.
    I have a space in my mancave but I have a feeling I won't fit. I have seen the specs but they appear to be wrong.
    I might have do some DIY, to support it if it's is to big. Diy is not my strong point!LOL

    Quite tempted to get this to hook the One X up to. Should be a decent upgrade to the 3yr old 32" 1080p Samsung TV. My only issue is audio and the convenience of having a TV remote, don't really want the hassle of having to get up to adjust the volume when watching Netflix and the like hmmmmm

    Yes it includes the stand. Note that I said ~535mm. These measurements are not exact as some monitors sit marginally lower on the stand than others and it depends at which point along the width you measure it plus the tilt angle. But it sounds like it should fit your space.

    How would this be for PS4 Pro, for example obviously 4k cant be reached, but would it be scaled to 1440p on say for example Cod WW2 and would it be at a 16:9 ratio?. Dont know if these are nooby questions but im really tempted and going to ring up tomorrow to ask about stock and if im in the 500 then im ordering.

    Also any links to 4k monitors for gaming? 27-32inch and roughly priced upto £350? or is that asking too much for the price

    One last thing, any recommendations for speakers for the monitor?

    In my experience as long as you lock the fps at 75 then I think you'll be fine :)

    (I was ok with my LG 38UC99 as long as I tuened on the low motion blur mode and dropped the detail to allow 75fps at all times. Easily done with a Ti though)

    No, PS4 only supports 1080p or 4k. Microsoft recently announced support for 1440p for the One X so hopefully Sony will respond and announce support also :)

    I’ve ordered ***elsewhere*** based upon the positive comments this monitor has been getting on here. However thinking of switching to an order from here if earlier delivery is guaranteed. I see it was confirmed earlier on the 23rd that delivery would be within 1-2 weeks? ***Other retailers*** are showing 20th December or are unable to confirm a delivery date. Is it an expected delivery date of circa 7th? Thanks.

    Please read the rules regarding competitors.
    Thanks,

    I could ..... but I have mentioned the USP of this site and they are all priced the same. So no harm no foul.
