      No, Cashrewards and ShopBack cashback will be declined as the code is not listed on their website.

      Only if the code is provided on said cashback site.

    Shame it's not 2k res 😒

    •  

      1920x1080 is actually as close as monitors get to 2K resolution:

      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2K_resolution

      If you mean 1440p/QHD 240Hz, you're asking a bit much when the only such monitor sold in AU is 27" and currently $999. I think you'll see them come into towards $500 this time next year, but don't hold your breath for price getting below $700 any time soon.

      If you want to trade in 240Hz for QHD 144Hz, look at the upcoming Samsung G5, which has a starting MSRP of this price, and should offering great contrast and best-in-class response times.

      This model should slip towards $400 soon enough, maybe even under.

    Does this code only work on alienware? I'm trying to get another monitor but the code doesn't work

      only on alienware monitors

    Rookie question - I've recently discovered the world of high refresh rate screens via my S20 Ultra and its 120hz display. I will never be able to buy a phone again without this as a minimum, and as I'm in the early stages of putting together a new PC a new monitor is also on the cards. My question is can I expect the same level of "wow" if I was to compare a 144hz to a 240hz?

      Not really. I've got a 240hz Asus, I've tried manually locking FPS to 144hz and 240hz to see the difference, and while it is definitely noticeable in testing, you start running into pretty big diminishing returns the higher it goes.

    •  

      The biggest jump in noticeable difference is 60hz to 144hz, 240hz will be "better" but a lot less noticeable.

      Here is a good demonstration of how it affects performance on FPS games: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OX31kZbAXsA

        I'll watch this tonight - I do enjoy Linus' channel (keen to see the previous video with GavinFree too).

        Good answers all round guys thanks. The consensus seems to be if you're going from a 60hz then 144hz is the way to go, if you already have a 144hz and have cash you don't care for - give 240 a go.

        Early 240Hz didn't really do a great job of providing appropriate response times for the refresh rate. Linus' test monitor uses such a panel: the Acer XB252Q.

        Modern 240Hz TN (2019-era panel), Samsung's new QHD 240Hz panel well and truly exceed this performance, and these new 240Hz IPS panels are usually not far behind, but some implementations slide back to these older TN in performance, while offering the benefits of IPS panels.

        I personally wouldn't bother with IPS at this high a refresh rate due to the inherent challenges of this panel tech (powdery trailing) until they get super fast. The Samsung G7 looks really good if you can handle the curve.

        BTW, we're also seeing signs of the same issues with 1st gen 4k144Hz IPS and FHD 360Hz IPS, though the former is just starting to see panel updates.

      Not worth the money at least. I have a ASUS 240hz screen as well, but I do think 144hz is enough for gaming on daily bases. Plus, depending on what types of game you play, your games may never reach 200+

    Think ill just wait for the XiaoMi ultrawide on the 12/9 for $499πŸ˜…πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

    Im still waiting on the last Dell Ozbargain!

    •  

      Which one is that?

      We waited ages for our monitor but we chased them and it "suddenly was on board for delivery"

  •  

    Hey OP just noticed tech specs say 24.5"

  •  

    Any deals in ultrasync 27" monitors?

  •  

    Amazing bargain!
    Sadly I already have my 144hz G-syc on my Alienware 51M and no place to put an extra screen.
    The price is a steal.

    only the white version is on sale, it's pretty ugly

      Matter of taste - IMHO the white(ish) version looks great.

      I have 34'' Alienware in that colour, and I'm tempted to get this as a sidekick (rotated to portrait mode).
