    Surprised this hasn't been getting more attention, in the world of ridiculously priced monitors, this actually seems fair!

    Apparently uses the same panel as this:

    Kind of tempted tbh, although wouldn't mind giving these VA screens a try as a good contrast ratio and deeper blacks makes such a nice difference but then the colours and overall quality is nicer on IPS but maybe it's different for these new VA monitors now????

    Looks solid for <£400, I've ended up just buying a 1080p monitor to tide me over until the CX48 OLEDs go on sale.

    Another retailer has it listed as in stock from Monday 18th for £460. Not sure how accurate that is of course.

    OCUK preorders without a listed ETA are notoriously unreliable, however. The XV340CK was up for preorder for 3 months before any stock arrived. Same for the CU34G2X - except no stock has arrived yet, while other places got shipments.

    Will definitely look into buying this. A lot of monitor for the monitor. They have a curved CA planel version too that will be coming out. Wonder which one would be the better buy in terms of panel quality. I usually prefer IPS over VA.

    Saw this earlier there's also a slightly cheaper model at £343.49 with a 4ms (not sure what other differences their are).

    Seem like good value for money considering the alternatives. :D

    I think the 4ms variant is not 144hz and freesynch. Id say the extra 50/55 pounds is worthwhile investment for those 2 features.

    Ah yes I can see that now not 144hz but is freesync apparently according to spec.

    Hey @Gibbo, there's a typo in the product description. The large text says 3840x1440. And is this Gsync-compatible? My nephew is going to need a decent monitor at university (so any order will be in September - no hurry).

    Iiyama replied on youtube with this: All iiyama FreeSync models are fully compatible with Nvidia G-Sync technology

    Great news!

    Is the AMD premium freesynch features compatible with G-synch too? I am referring to the Low Frame Rate compensation (LFRC).

    Will definitely need to upgrade my old GPU for this monitor, R9 390 8GB. CPU should be, running 5820K @ 4.5GHz 16GB Ram, ASUS X99-S. Looking forward to the RDNA 2 and Ampere launches, will complement the monitor well @ 144hz. RX 6700XT and RTX 3070S could realistically reach RTX 2080TI, I am sure that should be sufficient on this monitor with some tweaks to settings.

    Sorry my mistake, I think the 144hz and the faster response time are the main selling point of this monitor, still worth it imo over the cheaper version.

    Anyone got an ETA yet? I've sent an email but nothing back yet, granted I didn't send it very long ago.

    I'm assuming moving to this from a 27" would see a drop in FPS due to having to push around many more pixels?
