    Are there any ETAs for the next batch of monitors? The last I read here was December, but that was a week or so ago.

    Just wanted to give my review of the LG 27GL83A-B. As someone who's never owned better than a 1080p 60h/z Acer monitor, it's a pretty incredible leap. Like going from console gaming to 60fps on a PC. The backlight issues are not as bad as in the Rtings review, although I probably got lucky with that. Colour accuracy is incredible.

    If you can afford to wait for one then I'd recommend it. I think I got a bit lucky though as I was going to buy a monitor either way before Christmas as I have work off.

    Yeh I'm in the process of returning my current monitor (asus vg32vq) and been patiently waiting for this monitor. I was tempted to go for the FI27Q-P, but that's priced ridiculously and i almost settled for the FI27Q, but then I'd know I went for a product that should not have ever existed. Using my inner monks patience now.

    yup, these seem to be rarer than hens teeth and trying to get a coherent answer out of LG's customer service team regarding stock is like trying pulling teeth with rusty pliers.....slow and painful.

    Pats his LG27GL850, and thanks the gods he doesn't have to go through the monitor upgrade nightmare for the next five years. :D

    Would it be mean of me to wish for a lightning strike to hit your house and fry all the delicate electronic equipment! :p:p

    I ordered two, one for a mate but he was undecided at the time. Thought he'd have more time to decide but received a dispatch email for both today to be delivered tomorrow (Monday 9th). Thankfully he does want it! Here's hoping they're both in decent condition. :cool:

    Evening all. Is anyone able to post their settings for the 83a. I'm not sure what a lot of these things are in the menu and want to be sure i'm getting the most out of it.

    Thanks,

    Luke

    Sorry for the dumb question but I can't get any sound coming out of my 24GL600F monitor, can anyone confirm if my sound isn't working or the monitor just doesn't come with any sound features?

    a quick google suggests it doesn't have speakers.

    Thanks it was confusing me that it has volume control but no speakers. I just wanted to double check as it didn't seem right to be able to higher and lower the volume despite not having any speakers
