    The deals for this monitor just keep coming!

    I can happily recommend as a sweet screen for productivity and gaming.

    • Hows the colours and viewing angles on this?

      • Colours look great to my untrained eyes. I switched from a couple of commercial grade Dell IPS screens and didn't notice any changes.

        Viewing angles are what you'd expect from a decent quality curved VA panel - excellent from directly in front of the screen, but colour distortion increases the further you move away from centre. There's a fairly large 'sweet spot' before it's noticeable, and there's plenty of adjustment in the stand (height, tilt, swivel) to set it where it suits your eye position. It's not a good screen for 3 or 4 people to view at the same time though.

    • With all these sub $600 deals, it makes me wonder how cheap it will go.

      • you can always check the retail price in china, right now it is on special 2199 cny which is around 443 AUD. So I think there is more room for the discount.

    • Hopefully competition will drop it to $400, that's roughly how much it's sold in China, I would say 450 is good enough..

  • yeah get that price keep going down

    While this is cheapest at face value, you can get down to $515 (if you can get $100 gift cards) or $537 (if can only get 5x $50 gift cards) and is Australian stock with this deal

    • And to think that there were like 300+ upvotes for this at $636 pre-order, they all got memes

    • with the flybuys do you actually get your money back or it just points worth that amount?

      why is the delivery cost missing in that calculation?

      • Points worth that amount. There's also limitations and no one has confirmed whether purchases from third party market sellers are verified for those bonus points.

        • can the flybuy points be exchanged as money in our bank account or only money that can be spent at woolworths etc?

          also they add the shipping cost in the calculation or catch membership cost (which i guess gets your the free delivery)

        • The terms and conditions don't exclude marketplace sellers, so I would say that is verification.

      • Free delivery

  • I have one. It’s pretty great for the price but is a little dim/washed out for my liking + the dpi is a little too low to display some miniature text (like the number of notifications missed on slack in the dock icon). Overall quality of the monitor is great though and it’s a great format for me (as a developer).

    Every time i feel a bit unhappy with any aspect of it, I remember the price differential to change that feature. In that sense the monitor is a bargain for sure.

    • but with those negs, $600 is still alot to pay for monitor even thought it is good value for the specs..

      maybe when price drops to $4xx range, the negs might be less of a pain…

      trying to decide if the ghosting on this bad enough to not buy it
      or wait for xiaomi to release an IPS version…

      Also another concern is the IPS glow vs VA ghosting
      not sure which one I can live with..

      • I find the ghosting not to be noticable outside of very dark scenes with very bright objects, but even then very acceptable.

        I play a fair bit of CS-GO and I can't notice a difference at all, versus my old 144hz IPS panel. Most competitive FPS are very bright and hence a non issue for VA panel response times.

        On the other hand I've loving the lack of IPS glow / backlight bleed. It makes watching movies or dark cinematic games much more enjoyable. I actively avoided doing that on my IPS panel it was so bad.

    • If you are noticing issues with DPI/text clarity try turning the refresh down to 120hz. Mine loses visual quality above 120 for some reason, might be the monitor or some other harware issues, not sure.

  • For high speed FPS gaming, anyone have this notice any ghosting? Hardware Unboxed really need to review this monitor.

    • yeah I am waiting for some more detailed thorough reviews before buying this..
      which may see the prices drop more by then..

      so far most YT reviews have just been positive about the price vs specs of this monitor
      but none have done any thorough reviews, including ghosting test, UFO test etc..

      Also reading on the forum here, about people experiencing ghosting and menu flickering(gsync enabled) in game is not good

    • They already did review this monitor, just under another brand.

      They all use the exact same VA 144hz panel. It's 30-40ms in dark shades, very bad.

    • The ghosting is better than average for 144hz VA panel. There are plenty of reviews for similar (or identical) panels online.

      Personally I can notice it but it's not an issue.

  • Curious to know other's experience with this monitor as mine has quite horrible backlight issues, shines through on anything black screen and is especially obvious in the dark. Certain angles there's the light blue glow across the screen too.

    You can see some vids/pics If you check my post history.

    Gearbite have been helpful with a return/swap but they said they can't gaurantee it won't still happen with a replacement.

    So my question is- is this just standard with this monitor? Am I possibly asking too much for a monitor at this price bracket. Maybe it's not worth the return if it's only blacks/darks that are the issue. Otherwise the monitor is great.

    • if others, all have the same issue then it is what it is..
      else it could be a quality control issue

      can you repost the video and pics problem here
      since it would avoid us all needing to check all your post history?

        • This is great. Thank you.

        • Would you want to sell your spare stand to me?

          Will be moving my display a bit :P

        • Yikes that looks bad. That ghosting is horrible. Are others getting that too?

        • That is horrid. Definitely send it back, mine has no similar issues.

          • @Krios42: would it be possible for you post some similar videos and pics of your monitor
            to compare how it should look without those backlight issues?

            Do you think those pics posted look similar to IPS glow?
            To me it looks like how IPS glow looks like, except it is on a VA panel.

        • thanks for the pic and video

          damn that looks like IPS glow with that bad backlight

          I thought VA was suppose to not have backlight issues and deep blacks

          At least we know Xiaomi don't have 100% good quality control based on that..
          I also read someone else had a slightly slanted Xiaomi monitor…

      • I got mine the other day and there was some flickering (see video https://photos.app.goo.gl/6oCAR6njXQdNmBVP8 ), I'm connecting from a macbook pro ([email protected]) via HDMI cable connected to an Apple Original USB-C to HDMI adapter.

        I contacted @Gearbite and they are being helpful so far on troubleshooting and recommended that I should try a different/better HDMI cable. My question for you owners is:

        What HDMI cable are you using or recommend (<$20)?

        • thanks for the video

          that flickering looks pretty annoying/bad

          do you have more hdmi cables or display port to test?

          • @pinkybrain: I did test it with another hdmi cable, it has improved (less frequent flickering) but it is still there… I'm not even talking 144hz 2K gaming, I'm using it for office work, no high expectations.

            since I'm on a macbook pro, there is no display port (USB-C only) and I don't have an adapter for it. Only HDMI at this point.

            • @hvbarg: try testing your laptop with another monitor using same hdmi cable

              or get another pc and test with monitor using same hdmi cable..

              • @pinkybrain: I've tried the cable with a TV monitor I have and it works fine, but I don't think that is comparing apples with apples…

                the main purpose of the monitor is to work with my office macbook pro, I can try with the other laptop but I still don't think it is going to help much… we'll see how that goes in the weekend…

                meanwhile, would you recommend any HDMI cable?

                I've got a recommendation of https://www.amazon.com.au/dp/B089KH7992 but I would like to know what other owners with a similar setup are using.

                • @hvbarg: the reason for testing with another pc is to see if it is the monitor or your laptop that is the cause of the problem..

                  I have no recommendation for any hdmi cables

                  I think it is better if you do the test I said before looking to buy more hdmi cables..

                  • @pinkybrain: yeah… so, I just tested the same cables with another macbook pro on its own HDMI port (no adapter) and the flickering is still there and slightly more accentuated.

                    I've order the new HDMI cable to make the final combination for testing, if that doesn't work I might have to request an RMA :/

    •  

      Send your message, please check out.

  • Pulled the trigger on this one, fingers crossed that it's a good monitor

  • Is there a single proper review of this monitor out? Something like rtings or hardware unboxed?
    All the 'reviews' so far have been unboxing the monitor and saying it looks great without doing a single scientific test for say sRGB coverage

    There's the gizmochina review but I don't trust that one

  • VERY DECENT PRICE

  • how long does shipping take?

  • I have a switch and ps4 pro and a Asus rog strix G531 gaming laptop.

    Would this be a good monitor to get for all three devices or I expect black borders etc

    It doesn't seem to have hdr

    • Neither Switch nor PS4 Pro officially support ultrawide (21:9) resolutions. You would have black bars on the sides, or a stretched image.

      Your laptop would work just fine, no issues there.

  • This is good price at the moment.
    However, if you are not in hurry, the price could be down to under 400-500 dollar in the future.
    The cheapest price of this monitor in China was 2000 CNY last year.

  • Still wondering when we will have papper monitors, if we can hide Goliath huge PC's under tables or desks, why can't we hide the counter weight these monitors weigh in the floor, LG does it with their signature papper TV's.

  • Is anyone able to share any experiences with either of the two vacuums mentioned above?

    Xiaomi Dreame F9 Robot Vacuum Cleaner

    Xiaomi Dreame cordless Handheld V11

  • Can I get my $20 back? I bought it straight from Gearbite website literally a few days ago :(

  • Needing to join Facebook to get a deal, that's nasty. Pass.

  • I purchased this monitor recently from Gearbite. They shipped it very quickly & Im very happy with the monitor.

    To those that have one: Does it detect properly under Device Manager-Monitors?

    Mine only detects as "Generic PnP Monitor".
    Im using the supplied displayport cable & a sapphire pulse 5700XT. It does get detected properly in the radeon software.

    Could someone upload (or send me) the .inf monitor driver pls if it detects properly in their Win10 Device Manager

    • Sorry man I cannot help you :(

      I was wondering something about this monitor as I was looking to buy also, is it a VESA mount?

      I too have a 5700 XT (MSI gaming x tho) so if I do get it (needs to be VESA tho) I will let you know if I have any similar issues

      • Anandtech's review suggests that it has a 100x100 VESA mount. I had a quick look at the rear of the screen and the stand blocks the view, but I do recall that it had mounting points.

        https://www.anandtech.com/show/15918/xiaomi-releases-34-wqhd...

        My PC also recognises it as a "Generic PnP Monitor" in the Device Manager, but in Windows Display settings it's called 'Mi Monitor.' Connected via Thunderbolt dock and HDMI for compatibility with my work hardware.

        • Thanks for the reply, did find the VESA mounting spec in a couple reviews!

          I do have another question if you have the manual still, does it detail the weight of the monitor without stand? The manual doesn't seem to be anywhere online and no reviews, spec sites or the mi website state any weight specs.

          also HDMI… oooft. I suppose work hardware means you don't need high framerates but in general how does HDMI cope at that res?

          • @krazykonr: HDMI still runs at 100Hz and native resolution just fine.

            The manual says the whole thing is 8kg. I reckon the stand would be a good 2kg of that.

            • @klaw81: Oh nice, was unaware and hadn't looked into it, guess HDMI is better than I assumed!

              Thanks for the weight though couldn't find it anywhere online. Well within most vesa mount stands.

        • thankyou for the info

    • I'm on my work laptop connected to an asus ultrawide and it still says Generic PnP monitor.

  • Is there GST in the price?

  • I bought this monitor, one thing that no one seems to talk about is that the text sharpness on this monitor is quite bad. I'm comparing it to a Dell U2719D (1440p 16:9) and I didn't expect such a big difference between two 1440p screens. Turning Cleartype on/off or adjusting the sharpness setting didn't help. It also doesn't have a setting for HDMI Black Level so even though it's a VA panel don't expect very dark blacks if you're used to a monitor having this setting. It's also doesn't work with a Surface Dock in case anyone is planning to use it with one.

    Some things that I really liked though:
    - 144Hz is a huge jump over 60Hz, even text scrolling in a browser is much smoother
    - 1500R curve is amazing, it makes the sides of the screen completely usable for productivity tasks
    - Build quality is awesome, it has a great minimalist aesthetic.

    It was a hard decision but the text sharpness and HDMI black level were deal breakers for me so I sold mine. I still think it's a decent monitor for the price but just be aware of the cons listed above.

    • I'm viewing your post right now on this monitor, and have zero concerns with text sharpness. Looks pretty damn sharp to me.

    • Did you try using displayport?

    • I suspect I had the same text sharpness issue as you - I could vaguely see faint horizontal rows of pixels. Issue resolved by reducing monitor refresh to 120hz. Might be a defect as others are not reporting the same issue.

  • For office work, other than the size, would this monitor be better than my current Dell Ultrasharp 27" 2K @ 60Hz? I'm thinking the Xiaomi might be easier on the eyes??

    • Size is the biggest part. Use this site to see the size difference and paste in the text in the advanced text box.
      https://socialcompare.com/en/tools/compare-sizes
      27 inch 16:9|335.53x596.65mm|
      34 inch 21:9|33.48×80cm|

      Do you mean 2K as in 2560x1440? It would be very similar pixel density.

    • I think the Xiaomi would be great to have multiple windows opened on the same screen to ultilise the screen real estate.
      As an accountant working from home and not able to use the multi-screen set up at work, I think it would help to improve work efficiency and do a bit of gaming on my spare time at home.
      In addition, I believe this screen has the feature to display from two input sources. So in theory you can connect your gaming console and computer and have them display left and right on the screen the same time!

      • Just to give you some idea of the real estate available - you can't quite fit 4 x A4 pages in portrait orientation at 100% scale on this screen. There is still spare space at the bottom, but doesn't quite fit width-ways.

        I strongly recommend installing a screen management utility like FancyZones (MS Powertoys) so you can snap windows to certain portions of the screen - it's great to have email, browser, Excel and PDF on screen at once, and be able to refer to each one, cross-check, copy/paste etc between windows without needing to shuffle windows around.

        BTW plugging in a second source doesn't quite work like that - my understanding is that the 2nd input is still expecting a 21:9 input, so a console would display with either black bars at the side, or stretched. Although I haven't experimented with it much yet so maybe there's a setting that would change that behavior.

        • Thank you for the recommendation on FancyZones. I will play around with it and the settings once it arrives.

  • Sorry I am not a tech person but why is mine showing 3840x2160p on the display settings?

    When I pick 3440x1440p it has black bars on the top and bottom.

  • second one purchased…. i use for work so no gaming however video and sharp text, loads of windows open at same time all works great. Also I start work early when its dark so auto high dynamic range is great for the eyes. I use with a mac btw. No speakers should be noted. Can't beat this for price.

    • Are you able to drive the monitor to 144Hz with your Mac?

    • Hey mate! I'm like on the same boat. Torn between getting another monitor + dock or just changing to 1x wide screen monitor for work. Do you find it okay for multi tasking?

  • Ordered 24/8. Got a notice from Auspost that this is being prepared but status hasn't changed for over 24h. Anyone else in same boat?

    • Same, ordered on the 24th and same Auspost being prepared status since yesterday.

    • Same here. I contacted gearbite and they said Auspost will pickup today. Major delays on Auspost's part due to restrictions in VIC causing spike in online shopping activities.

    • Very disappointed that I won't be enjoying it this weekend.

    • I think this might be an Auspost issue. I ordered a bag from Amazon on 24/08 and the status didn't change until last night. Just checked the Auspost status tracking and it's set to prepared.

    • Tracking status updated to Processed in facility. Looks like I'm getting it next week.

  • Anyone received their monitor? My tracking is stuck on processed in facility.

    • Yeah same, since Friday arvo. I assume we will all be getting them at a similar time.

    • Yup, recieved the monitor yesterday arvo

      I think it depends on where you're located. I have a parcel that was supposed to arrive in Perth today but ETA is updated to next week…
