    If you need more connectors, then look up this model in the MULTI version.

    Where abouts are you in Canada rflair? I just dropped in an order too.

    Edit: I just broke and ordered an HIS 7970 IceQ X2 Turbo. So much for such a good deal, haha.

    Anyone have this monitor yet? I'm tempted to buy it to replace my 22".

    From 120Hz.net $460 for a 80-120hz 2560x1440 monitor sounds VERY tempting. But the fact is an A- rated display, and other things are making me a bit cautious before ordering one.

    One rule applies, you get what you pay for. I am not expecting a brilliant monitor for the 329 USD I spent. Obvously I will not receive the 120MHz B revision as they are not in production (except for the batches at 120hz.net but these cost 460 USD).

    I'm looking for a cheap big monitor for one of the test rigs. However for 329 USD a 27" 2560x1440 screen that has an LG color precise S-IPS screen .. that I am curious about as these are expensive screens. Even if the screen has minor flaws it's a steal for an S-IPS screen.

    But again, you get what you pay for. I mean i bought my IPS dell U2711 for like 800 USD a year ago.

    However if you read up on comments, it seems that the Yamakasi monitors are pretty darn good exept that the mount is a little plasticy, and why shouln't they be good as a screen -- they all have the new model LG screens S-IPS panels.

    I'd say wait a little until the now already 3 peeps in this thread have received their monitor and see how good of a deal this really is / or not.

    Mine just came in. I haven't even finished getting my 7970 tested out and now I get to push it even harder! I'll try and get some pics and such as I go.

    I got the one linked in the first post. The 'basic' 27", no speakers one.

    Honestly its pretty awesome.

    The box wasn't packed into bubble wrap, and you can tell it was banged up quite a bit. There are gouges and holes in the box - But nothing major other than a small half inch hole on one of the edges.

    It's tightly packed in there. One of the harder boxes to pull the Styrofoam out of the box it was so tight
    [​IMG]

    The normal plastic wrap. Every inch was protected by the saran wrap like stuff - not just the monitor but the base as well.
    [​IMG]

    I didn't think about it when I ordered it, but it comes with a wall plug for Asia, not North America! Luckily they were good enough to provide an adapter to use. I still ended up using one of my old cables instead.
    [​IMG]

    Here is is beside my 23", it dwarfs it. Sorry for the quality - cell phone. I was watching a bit of Game of Thrones, seeing how it looked. NOTE: It looks really washed out - blame my phone and not the monitor - the screen looks great!
    [​IMG]

    A quick shot of Skyrim. Again, not the best picture but I wanted a quick shot of it motion.
    [​IMG]


    The whole base spins, kind of like the tray in a microwave. There is an inner ring that sits on the table and doesn't move. The rest of the base spins around on that inner ring. It works pretty nice, but does need 2 hands to make it smooth.

    I haven't used it much (clearly - I just got it!), but the image so far is pretty awesome straight out of the box. Images and the quick video and Skyrim run I had looked great.

    There is one thing I am not a fan of, and thats the base. When unboxing the base felt very plasticy and cheap. Once I had the monitor attached though and had it sitting on my desk it feels a lot more solid.

    Cool, got the same one. Were there any import duty fees?

    Yeah, I got hit with $30 for it at the door. Kind of a bummer, but to be expected.

    The C.O.D kinda gave it away, rarely are packages sent C.O.D unless it's a failed RMA, duty fees or business purpose (usually would be designated as F.O.B, but that's another story lol).

    It's fast and stable ... heat is a pain though, not used to seeing temp going higher than 42C which wasn't an issue with my old Phenom II lol.

    Is this monitor a 120hz model(revision B)?I wouldnt worry to much about the base,that can be easily changed as there all a standard fit.
