    Can someone recommend me a monitor for under £300, it needs to be:
    27"
    1920x1080
    120hz

    I'm looking at BenQ or Iiyama, any ideas?

    That seems like a great deal, but I'd much rather know exactly why the item was B grade before buying it myself.

    are B grade items covered by the 14 day return deal?

    also, i assume grade B means somebody returned it for either stuck pixels or excessive back light bleed some problem like that?

    or worse are the 3d glasses missing?

    Those BGrade sammys were an insane price!
    Enjoy whoever bought them

    makes me wonder that there are always 3 in stock. Do the same people return them and then ocuk re-stock them again and the vicious cycle continues?

    I have heard that can have dp issues though from reading various forums. But didn't Sammy bring out a firmware for the S series monitors to rectify it?

    I thought they updated to resolve that issue.
    I was sorely tempted yesterday to grab one of the sammy's at the silly price just to conenct my Xbox to lol, If theres another popup I very well might

    I managed to get an order in for the 27"! Hope it is ok :)

    I did a quick google, there was a batch of these not long ago that were similarly priced because they were "end of line". Hopefully going out of fashion is the only complaint!

    I've sent those pics to Samsung just now, and will see if they can have the screen changed. But with regards to dp issues, I've not had any so far (maybe tht only happened when running eye infinity or whatever it is called)

    Please keep us informed about your response from Samsung...

    I can always get a refund from ocuk or even get them to handle the RMA, but it depends who has the quicker turn around time. Samsung said they'll call me within 24 hours after sending the email.

    Also does anyone know pcm2's website? I need some calibration settings as it is way too bright out of the box.

    You called Manju? ;)

    Yeah it looked like it took a knock to that section or some of the LEDs died. I look forward to hearing what Samsung says, they are usually quite responsive and keen to help out with such things.

    I bought the 23" 3D version. Since I already have one for my gaming machine (when they did the epic deal of selling them for £185), I've been wanting to get a 2nd one. And cos the LG one I bought ages ago is only 60Hz and the 3D sucks for movies.

    So while I was skeptical about it being a B-Grade, I took the plunge. It's arrived at work, but I won't be able to test it til I get home later this evening. Finger's crossed it works, tho. I shall report once I have tested.

    I found your article, the website had changed from .org to .info ;)

    Doing things over the phone with Samsung is slow, I went via the web and had a reply already:

    Will ocuk exchange it for a new one? ( I doubt this), so I may as well get Samsung to repair it. I wonder if there is a new model on the horizon?
