    Would the volume control not be for the Headphone out?

    As someone else mentioned it’ll be volume control for headphones. :)
    Speakers on a monitor are always gash so don’t be thinking you’re missing out on anything! :p

    Well that’s pretty ******* inconsiderate. Could you not have had it delivered to where you are now, set it up and shown us a pic or 2 :p:p

    Joking aside, I’d be getting all chewed up inside itching to get my hands on it if I were you.

    Might want to edit out your reference dude. Competitor hinting is frowned on - a mod spots it you could get pulled on it.

    Problem is the original earliest delivery date was the date I was moving to the new place.. perfect.. so I ordered it there. Once I found out delivery was coming early, it was too late to change the delivery address. Can't wait to start using it either!

    Just did a search for the word.. and it's everywhere including this thread.. and loads of others... appreciate the heads up though. :)

    it's one of those enigmas - you can talk about or hint towards them if talking about kettles, toasters crap like that that OcUK don't sell but mention them in relation to stuff they do sell and you can come a cropper. catch a mod on a bad day and you could get bum spanked and not in a fun sexual way :p

    A forum search shows that "that term" still appears 499 times on OCUK.

    I guess he's still working through the backlog.. :D

    Have OCUK ever even sold the LG 27GL83A-B though? Thats the one A2Z was talking about.

    From what I understand it's currently exclusive to another vendor, much like some models are exclusive to OCUK at present. Set mine up yesterday and quick pixel test shows no dead or stuck ones. Backlight seems reasonably uniform at a crazy 100 brightness and contrast. For now I've set it to 15 brightness and 70 contrast for normal use to match my LG 34GK950F.

    All this exclusivity crap is just LG's way of saying they cant supply models fast enough. Their stock levels are pretty frustrating.

    Definitely, trying to get any brand that uses the same panel is a nightmare. The Viewsonic XG270QG is near enough vapourware and the Lenovo Y27Q-20 is also nonexistent in the U.K.

    Okay, who got the 27GL83A for £217 then? Was putting my payment details in when it went out of stock. I hope it was someone on here.

    Assume it was a b grade product? Wouldn’t touch a b grade monitor with a barge pole tbh. Very high likelihood it suffers from dead pixel(s)/awful backlight or both.
