I'm fairly new to Massdrop. I joined the drop and I'm the fourth out of five needed. If another person doesn't join within the time limit is the drop extended or is is cancelled?
Phew. That's clean!
This same model is selling on amazon for the same price but you have to pay for shipping. Just in case anyone was wondering
K-Tran
Care to share where exactly? I can find only for EUR 439,56 or more.

peteulatan
Seriously? Can ship to Australia, but not Hawaii?!
peteulatan
Yea it's sad. They wrote this:
Alaska & Hawaii order Disclaimer Alaska & Hawaii customers will not be able to participate in this drop due to escalated shipping rates. These orders will be cancelled.
I have the non-curved version of this moniter and highly recommend it, especially at this price
This coming back or nah?

this is only freesync, what do you mean "freesync" model
also this one is curved and the one you found likely isn't, i thought the same at first
General_Winter
There are models with no freesync I think. Anyway, I bought the ebay one and it’s definitely curved. Saved $50.
Why it's not available in canada? It's just a bit up to the north... you know?
I have this monitor. I will say it has stunning visuals and the wide-screen aspect is nice. If you are looking for a curved monitor, this one may not be for you. The curve is very subtle and you will often forget it is there. Really nice tough, and the speakers are better than you'd think.

I have a MSI 1050 Would Nvidia GPUs use Freesync or Gsync?

They are nvidia, they would use g-sync.
GT20Modding
gsync but not sure if you all that is worth it. if you are gaming, most games if not all now support setting the Hz of the game framerate, so in a 1050 you can easily match any frame rate of the monitor. I have frame rate matched and no v-sync on and it rocks. I think the difference is only in extreme heavy load when the gsync can fetch forward the rates. I could be wrong, I stopped caring once I matched the frequencies.
Shipping to Israel? and at what cost?
I would like to know the estimated delivery date for this product since I have to move into my college dorm by next month. (Currently residing in the East Coast of U.S.)

At the bottom it says that estimated ship date is August 3rd
Thanks, I did view the FAQ page regarding the estimated delivery time and joined the drop. I'm receiving mine in a few days time.

Hopefully someone can answer a few of my lame questions:
-Is this a good option for a console? -Is there anything better I could get? -Does free sync help console at all? Or is Game mode really the only thing that assists.
Edit: Thank you guys for answering, I really appreciate it! I may wait for a different model and get it on Amazon. Huge thanks again!

- No, maybe in the future - Depends on where you live - No

First question: depends, if it has the right connector u should be fine, also make sure the aspect ratio is supported by your console, else you will get black bars, (this was probs what the person commenting before me meant - main concern if your gonna buy this! **Beware before purchase**). second question: depends where you live and (if there are good deals at nearby stores, or something like amazon) third question: there is no need for a game mode or anything. As a monitor it does not need post processing thus eliminating majority of the latency, so compared to your tv, it should "theoretically" be better (theoretically being from everything I know, not from research - so yes from what I would say, but there is a small chance I can be wrong). freesync works differently to reduce latency than game mode, (game mode reduces the post processing on tv reducing some latency) not gonna get into freesync but I rlly don't think Freesync will help.
309.96 on Amazon right now. Love you massdrop, but you gotta be able to beat Amazon's prices at least since you can't beat their shipping.

Well now it's sub $300, and anything on Amazon is $325+.
MrKolt
I understand your point and you're correct, Amazon is now about $30 more expensive for this monitor. That's great, now at least there is a valid reason to buy this here. There's no need to defend Massdrop though, I was in no way trying to insult Massdrop as a company. I think they have amazing deals all the time, but I stand by my original opinion and personally would choose to pay $30 more to have it Monday than save a few bucks and have to wait a couple weeks for it to ship. You also have to think about things like Amazon's customer service, returns and everything else that gives them an advantage if you can't beat them significantly on price. For me, $30 savings isn't worth choosing slower shipping, less mature service and no returns.
Cost to ship to Melbourne, Australia?

To ship this from the states to Australia would cost around $225 almost the same price as the monitor. We have covered this many times in many drops where big, heavy items are challenging to ship them internationally and especially to Australia. It is literally the most expensive place to ship to.
That is why we do not usually offer shipping at all on those types of items as once you tack on the shipping cost it kills the deal as you can obviously purchase this locally much cheaper than $309.99 + $225 shipping = $534.99.

One day when 3D printing moves forward a few steps, Australia will finally be set free.....
$310 for this thing, when you can get the non-curved 29UM58-P with the same specs for $240 on Amazon.

You're* now I'm the douche. Tag! :D
shhhh.... dont tell anyone ;)
So does it ship internationally? Or nah? and if yes, how hucm to austria :x
it's been lower on eBay for $249.99
leontius
As B.Hutch pointed out, that one also doesn't have freesync.
It was so awesome until I saw the color depth was only 8-bit (256 colors)
HudsonGTV
It's sRGB 99% with 16.7 Million colors. The only downside of colors I've heard from reviews is the blacks.
Anyone knows the shipping costs for Greece?
Does the shipping charges include import fees? I live in India bdw...
Sa_Mulla
Never. Import fees, duties and taxes are country specific
Can this merchandise be delivered to Japan? I live in Japan.
So liek... will sales be slightly better next drop? Cause I can understand if this is an early drop or something leik that. I don't mind waiting either. As long as waiting is worth it in the end.

75 hz is the max on display port.
I own this model, 75hz - freesync range, 40-75.
Hello Everyone, I want to thank @MrDynamicMan for letting us know about the pricing on Amazon. We checked the pricing the day before launch but it looks like Amazon dropped lower than us today. I was going to respond sooner but I wanted to get a hold of the vendor and get a better cost for the community first. We are now lower than Amazon by quite a bit. Cheers.
B.Hutch@AKRacing
Thanks!
5ms response time? Aren't better gaming monitors at 1ms?
Shockolate
IPS panel, with superior picture quality and viewing angle compared to TN panels with 1ms response. The response difference is negligible and invisible for most users.
Shockolate
below 15ms you won't notice unless you've used a 144hz monitor
Why doesn't it ship internationally? I was ready to get it when I saw it, the 34 inch one does but the total is too high for me
Mr_3loy
Same, would've jumped right on it - really sucks.
doesn't ship internationally? :(
Cheaper on amazon, and comes in two days instead of two weeks. Weak massdrop.
MrDynamicMan
Came here to say the same thing. I was hoping for a much deeper discount on this guy.
