I'd be so mad if that was their reason. It's super frustrating when Lenovo is as tight-lipped as they are about everything. "Spring" was over quite some time ago and we still don't have any comment or anything on the delay :roll:

Lenovo support has finally commented on the product page, looks like it should be available from the US store in about 2 weeks!

The sad thing is, if someone in the US really wanted this monitor they could have ordered it from the EU or China and got it via boat by now.

I actually thought about doing that, but didn't want to deal with returns or anything if there were issues. You also can't ship directly to the US from the EU stores, so you'd have to use a third party service to have someone order it for your and ship it to the US. Something tells me if you bought it from a foreign storefront, they might be hesitant to provide any customer support from the US store. That being said, we've already passed the 2 weeks that the Lenovo support team quoted for the US release :(

In case not on overclock:

You can actually order the monitor here:
https://www.lenovo.com/us/en/accesso...ing&uq=&text=#
Coupon code ACCEXTRA8 makes it $919.99
Still says 10-12 days though.


I'm probably going to wait for another generation of GPU before going 1440p 240hz.

Decided to try this monitor out. I heard the AR film is quite atrocious. May have to do attempt a film removal.

Got this baby in. Wow, definitely on a new level for TN motion clarity and speed. Noticeably better motion clarity than any other sample and hold display I've used. Due to no strobe-cross talk or overdrive artifacts, right up there with the motion clarity of mid-tier back-light strobe monitors. All with perfect G-Sync and high brightness.

I've been using this monitor for 5 days and returning it today. It is Amazing! Very fast, faster than BenQ XL2456 without DyAc, I don't see ghosting and reverse ghosting on 160 Hz + Gsync.
Good:
+Amazingly bright, 450-nits
+Amazing color, better than Aorus AD27QD and Acer XV273K, providing you are not viewing from angel
+Very fast.
Bad:
-No ULMB (Lenovo screwed up the greatest tech again)
-Fan always on, even when the monitor is turned off
-No crosshairs

Any other manufacturer is using this panel? I really want ULMB on this.

No monitors that use the DP 1.4 G-Sync chip have ULMB. I honestly don't even think they included it when NVIDIA went to an FPGA G-Sync setup.

The Omen X by HP 27-Inch Gaming Monitor uses the same panel, but Freesync. No strobing back-light either.

Also dark boost, doesn't brighten dark parts but only brightens light parts. Crazy fast monitor with great picture quality, I'm using 27GL850 and it has worse picture quality.
