@Notty_PT
320€ here

A low price on your location but irrelevant for me and many others in Europe.

@Notty_PT
I dont care about strobing, whats the point of buying an ultra low input lag monitor just to increase it?
The stand allows height adjustement so it's fine to me. Coulours etc Useless to mr.

Same as above, maybe not for you but.....

Plus the monitor is cheap.

Depends, price at the moment in Europe around €380-€420 is not what I call cheap ;)
Keep in mind this monitor has no black frame insertion, black Stabilizer, built-in speakers, swivel or rotate function if you
need those kind of things.

@masneb
The HP website lists this as a 1ms monitor, so I assume it's not using the new AUO panel.

True, you got a good point there, why should HP not listing the 0.5ms G2G in the specs? so for now we can only assume.

Also there's still the panel lottery issue, my unit was suffering from "vertical lines inversion artefact" very thin vertical lines
in the background that blurred the image when moving, I could see it clearly but I must say my eyes are very sensitive although others could see it also, scrolling at a webpage with text was also a bit blurry.

For now the old 120hz Hanns.G "masterpiece" ;) is back in use, think I'm gonna wait a bit longer for other brands releasing their version with the new 240hz panel and for more reviews before I buy another 240hz model, after some time the availability will also be better here in Europe.

Tried the 144hz LG 24gl600 before and for the money you get a fast low input lag monitor that produce a nice image, send it back due the lack of height adjustment but now there's also a version with height adjustment so maybe I'll buy that one to overcome the time waiting.
320€ here. Every other model is 450€++

I dont care about strobing, whats the point of buying an ultra low input lag monitor just to increase it? The stand allows height adjustement so it's fine to me. Coulours etc Useless to mr. What I look for on a 240hz monitor is:

- lowest possible input lag
- lowest possible response time

This model has both, all the rest to me is irrelevant. I want to frag.
Afaik, recent strobing implementations (27GK750F and XL2546 as examples) add miniscule, if not zero lag.

So you guys buy 240hz monitors to end up with higher input lag than a 144hz one? Lol ok.

Btw tell me how many cheaper 240hz monitors than the HP are right now on Amazon europe

Got to love all these new fresh accounts out of a sudden, ready to bash other users posts. This is not how this forum works "guys". Specially when you come here and your first post is saying that you bought certain monitor with good price, and suddenly it hasn´t a good price anymore, evem tho is still the cheapest or top 3 cheapest 240hz models that money can buy. Plus with 2,6ms input lag by Rtings and 5ms pixel response time. Good luck finding a better one, even more expensive lol. This comes from someone that tried basically all of them.

Feel free to reccomend a better model! We would all thank you

I bought the X 25f for a good price on Amazon.es, you posted the tip and I thanked you for that but I must send it back due the panel lottery.
The actual price for me (and others) at this moment is higher and yes suddenly it isn't so cheap any more, that happens.

I'm very positive about this monitor also in my postings, why are you debating about this?

@notty_PT

I allready find one at least I thought so, I really liked the X 25f and it was a bummer for me to send it back.

Notty_PT I really don't understand why you react so agritaded, why are you going in defence? no need for that.

Anyone know when this monitor is suppose to release in Norway (nordic/scandinavia)? Can't import, customs will kill my wallet.

Curious response, so they don't know exactly (opening it) or didn't ask the manufacturer? That's not a AFAIK type question. :l

I'd find it really weird if it didn't, but that's once again an assumed answer.
