    Long shot (and you may have read it before in other threads) i am chasing 1 x M5 Mesh router, if anyone wants a 2 pack @ $121.1 i would happily pay $70 for a single. Can meet in Ashwood, Reservoir, or South Morang and surrounding

    I remember spending $750 on that LG monitor not too long ago. Damn at how quickly prices have fallen for good monitors.

        I bought Dell DGF earlier this month and it arrived yesterday. For $359 before Ebay GC discount it's fantastic for the money. AFAIK this is mostly similar but can take 4K input for console and streaming, correct?

          Na it's identical panel used in the monitor. The LG uses A1 of the nano ips panel which supports 1440p/144hz while the DGF is the newer A2 panel which supports 1440p/165hz with a little bit more brightness.

            @Letrico: Yes but the DGF can not take 4K input and downscaling that to 1440p, so it can't connect to console to play in 4K settings. I'm aware there's a way to do this https://youtu.be/FAJEMLpRALc.
            The LG however does this natively?

            •  

              @Bigboomboom: You are right. I did a search on that topic and it is due to the EDID on the DGF cannot handle it. The adaptor is EDID emulator that makes the PS5 thinks the monitor is 4k and gives 4k signal out.

        Even the price of the S2721DGF has fallen, I bought mine for $550 a year ago but now you can get one for $360.

    that screen at $480 is a bargain but forget hdr10, its brightness is way too low.

      I have this monitor and brightness is so high it burns my eyes at 100%. I sit about a feet from it and I usually have all settings at 50%. Still it’s bright enough that my work video calls look professionally lit.

      I paid $829 at Amazon during the lockdown. Still no regrets. Thinking about buying another one to replace my verticals 1080p monitor. It’s definitely a bargain at this price.

        It's 350 nits how are your eyes burning? I have the S2721DGF with a similar panel and I keep it on 75% at night and 85-100% in the day.

    Deco M5 supports VLan tagging? I have seen differing comments about the support.
    I'm on TPG HFC NBN so currently have the Archer router connected to Google Wifi (1st Gen).
    Would like to get rid of the router and just run the mesh system (which I cannot do with Google)

    If i dont play games, but mostly office work, will I benefit from that monitor or I will just waste money?

      Definitely a waste of money if you'll never play games on it

      Reason why the LG is attractive is the high refresh rate, which is important in for some games. High refresh rate is barely noticeable for run of the mill office work.

      But if you weren't gaming something like this with a slower refresh rate (75hz) would be pretty good, and save yourself $200:

      I don't have personal experience of it and just using this as an example.

      But someone else may be able to recommend a 27" 1440p monitor with a 60hz or thereabouts refresh rate.

    Is the m9 the pick of brand mesh systems for a budget setup?

    thanks needed a monitor for my ps5, and this works out well since it accepts the 4k signal & also can play 1080p at 120
