    Was there ever any pre-order discount on the G9 ?

    Thanks for the update, so glad that I managed to nab one at the preorder price. I've been looking for a monitor which does 240Hz @ 1440p but I wanted something larger than 27".

    The price point is perfect, in fact before I found it on OCUK, I placed an order on the manufacturers website because they said they had stock (they don't) and the price was £769 :|

    Did you email them first or did they email you? I ordered on June 10th and not heard anything yet. Also did you get it at the pre order price?

    We'll be receiving some 27 and 49 on Friday.

    Not enough to cover all pre orders unfortunately.

    I've asked when the next stock after this is due to the UK as I'm sure everyone who isn't allocated one in this initial batch on Friday will be desperate to know!

    Thanks, appreciated.
    Any idea if it would cover pre-orders to the 21st June or is that too specific?

    My flatmate bought his G9 yesterday and it's out for delivery already. He's getting his tomorrow!
    I'm fuming haha.

    I'm in Switzerland, got my G7 32inch today, coming from a AW3418DW + PG278QR, running a 2080TI.
    Not updated FW yet.

    Love the size, PPI is fine for me as I have a deep desk and my eyesight is far from 20/20, anyway it's normal sharp, nothing obvious about it.
    Amazing colors and contrast even without HDR, suddenly lighting in games has a purpose...
    Response/smoothness feeling, never experienced anything like this before, in motion, image is clearer than anything I've seen with a flat panel.
    Not using VRR at this time, no need with 2080TI I feel.
    Not even thinking about the curve.
    Extra height and width close to UW1440p is very nice, UW1440P just lacks some height to the screen which hurts the immersion.
    Yes, at least with original FW there is some flickering in Pendulum demo below 80fps, a bit, not like a stroboscope. Honestly not bothered messing with it right now.
    Stand is wobbly...

    I'm not a monitor uber geek (yet I've had many monitors over the years, change anytime something really new comes out). I'm not going to absolutely look for issues, to me nothing comes out as bad/defective out of the box, I plugged it in and it had 240Hz and Gsync on right away, only 10bit color I had to adjust in Nvidia control panel.

    how bad, lucky him. he order it from here?
    I'd pre order it now only for they charge upfront not when it ships.

    Really want this beast now. Surely YT videos incoming in the next 2 days as so many have been shipped.

    Hurry up linus with your review

    If it’s anything like the previous generation you will be in for a treat! I work from home one day a week now and it’s just sheer bliss using it for word and excel. Racing games and mmos on it just as stunning
