    When I phoned up to cancel my order I was told the end of September.

    Was also told September but that I wasn't in the next 100 so have to wait longer for a further batch of "over 200" but split in 3 separate orders. This whole thing is a shambles. I understand OCUK might not be getting the numbers they expected from LG but continuing to take Pre-Orders at this point seems like a huge cash grab as they obviously cannot meet demand but continue to take orders with no clear date that they will arrive. Their own definition of pre order is "New item that you can order before we receive stock" seeing as this item is no longer new is this really a pre order. At the very least put a note on the page to let people know they should not be expecting this soon as you can't fulfil orders.

    When did you pre-order yours? I ordered mine on the 2nd of Aug and was told there was 110 pre-orders. Not sure where my order falls in to that 110.

    I'm going for the AORUS AD27QD as I need a new monitor now.

    Is there much difference in the LG and Gigabyte for gaming and photo work?

    About a week before they came out :D (I know, hopeful) Anyway, I've ended up going for the PG279Q to try. So far very happy with it. Only downside.. there's a fair bit of backlight bleed in all four corners of the screen and even some down the sides. 144hz though coming form 60... just wow.

    Where did they warn? I haven't seen it.
    EU has nothinig to do with this, the value of the pound has barely moved since July and is the same as it was back in January. So what are they covering for exactly? The 0 point change in GBP vs EUR?

    Except the value of the pound has barely moved over the last few months. So what a load of rubbish.


    edit: Nik stated on page 6 that if the dollar dropped any further he would raise the price. That was on like the 6th Aug.

    As of right now the pound is 0.01 UP on the dollar. So tell me again how this is a reaction to a drop in GBP? and isn't just a cash grab on good popularity.

    @Alice Gibbs @NikTheSHNIK Do you have any more updates or are these still due W/C 23rd September?

    Typical gauging again OcUK due to supply and demand. (oh and the review)

    Everyone always jumps on the brexit crap saying pound is weak etc etc when in reality hasnt moved at all.

    I was considering getting my pre order in but tbh with this sort of attitude id rather purchase something else.

    That's what competition is for, presumably it won't be exclusive forever.

    Exactly, or wait for a possible Black Friday deal.

    I don’t work for OCUK so I couldn’t tell you. No one at the shop said it had anything to do with Brexit or anything, that was speculation from some users here.

    You’d have to ask the shop why pricing changed but my point was that it’s not uncommon for pricing on a lot of things to change. Places do special offers, introductory pricing, get different buy prices depending on stock quantities. All kinds of things could happen. People moaning because they missed a good deal price from a couple of months ago when the screen was available to pre order won’t change anything sadly.

    It'll be plain old supply demand. If they're flying off the shelves and filling pre order books the price is going to go up. Either go with an in stock alternative or wait it out. November sales might be the time.

    The UVP in D is 579€ according to LG.

    So that will amount everywhere so, depending upon currency of course convert.

    Turned on my computer today and the monitor osd settings had completely changed from what i previously set. Adapative sync was on , brightness was 100 and RGB values were different.

    Anyone else experienced something similar? It wasn't that the profile had changed either, was still gamer 1. Is 100 brightness default settings for gamer 1 i can't remember :confused: , though unsure how i'd have reset it to default.

    edit - I think I was accidentally increasing the brightness as the 'nipple' control thing up and down is brightness, when I was just trying to turn the monitor off. Still not sure why rgb settings reset, though haven't had any repeat of this.
