Samsung 27 inch curved full hd monitor 124.99 @ Amazon

https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B071RCKBK5?tag=22

Morning,

This was from Hotdeals a while ago but the price has gone down again.

This is good for a 27" monitor if you only want 1080p.60hz 5ms. Which is good enough for most gamers. Has free delivery as well.

Dan.

Good deal. Seems ridiculous that the speakers add another £114

Great screens. I have the 24" version for a few years.
This is definitely a bargain.
Coming in at €120.46 for me due to vat registration.

Of course....but any personal stuff I buy on Amazon I pay with a personal card. Amazon doesn't care about the payment method as long as the VAT number is valid.

If you were using this, say, to play video, presumably you'd be able to use the audio out to connect to a speaker?

You would just connect your speakers or headset to the PC as normal.

If it was for PS4 / XBOX then i'm not sure as I use headphones when I play at my PC monitor.

No, I was thinking more of a Chromecast or Raspberry Pi. I think it'd be fine.

I read the HDUK reviews and they said it was bad

The rest say it is good, For what I said it was good for.

https://www.guru3d.com/news-story/sa...-freesync.html


Amazon have 4 stars on 125 reviews.

Don't worry about the moaning English a$$holes on HDUK (I know how they can be as I am one) you could put up a Lambo on HDUK for 10 Pounds and they would moan about the fact it has Bridgestone tyres and not Pirelli's
