Last drop it was $700. I guess these monitors need expensive memory chips or there's a shortage of them lol

Thank you Sir. I appreciate you as well and it was awesome of you to say so. Thank you!

Your circle jerk notwithstanding, did you sell a single monitor at this inflated price?
Any word on when we will get an update on Shipping? You guys are a tech company serving a tech focused community. As a software engineer I expect to have updates when we pass milestones that you have set. For this item a ship date of 4/22 was set. It would be very easy to send out an email saying everything is going to plan or there is a small delay and we have not forgotten about you. This should go out like clockwork every time you hit one of your shipping dates. You could even run some logic so this email would kickout if you didn't yet send us an email update on the product and its status by the ship date.
I read many of the discussions on these products and I have seen that this is overwhelmingly the biggest gripe. It is not the delays but the poor communication about the delays and the status of the product. This is really a simple fix and you guys should spend some time addressing it. I also think you guys should recognize that I (and others) really don't come here for the products you offer (we can find them on amazon) as much as I do for the community and the discussions to help focus what I look for. So if this is more about communities then you should really prioritize communicating with them.
I like what you have created and would like to see it grow and succeed but believe that this is seriously impeding your growth and my enjoyment of your services.

I got an. email earlier saying that they will update on 5/29. Not sure if that is going to happen.
mathkaren
Thanks for the update! Funny that I didn't receive any email from them.
I started using mine -- great panel, minor annoyances with the menus and controls (I prefer the Dell high-end monitors), but for the price, this is great.
mine is finally here display is good, a little bit two face but I think is normal in big IPS monitor.
BUT a problem is , when the brightness is low, or displaying a dark color, is just keep humming. I'm not sure is this a quality problem
Leokumi
I also have coil whine when there is no input/dark colours. I fixed the dark colour whine by maxing the brightness on the monitor, then lowering the brightness via my graphics card software. My other issue is a flickering and pop sound every now and then, i suspect the displayport cable included is low quality (hopefully its not the capacitors..).
greyearlgrey
And I try that, if you connect some accessories via the USB port , to using more power from that, may reduce the noise. I will buy a better cable too
I have one of these sitting in a corner after both a Mac Pro (Trashcan) and my MSI nVidia 970 core card failed to drive it correctly. The Mac Pro seemed to work but high contrast images at 60Hz causes it to continuously drop the signal to a black screen. Tried several mini DP cables to no avail. Works at 50Hz fine, with a tweak to the Mac that the Mac keeps fucking up (third party display control software) every boot. The nVidia drivers worked ok until a Windows 10 update inexplicably killed its 4096 capability and would only drive it at quad HD. The other specs are fine and the image quality is good for a four year old monitor but be sure your system does single pane DP 4096x2160 output or you will have panel boxing everywhere.
I have this monitor with the extra thunderbolt port. got it from Newegg at $643.99 in December 2015 that was the cheapest price ever. Monitor is amazing, I would love to get a second one but the ergonomy is not ideal for a dual monitor setup.
a few comments: - The monitor is not HDR ready even though a firmware probably could fix that but i would not get my hopes too high. - The menu is very slow but works - With nvidia cards *there is a tendency for the monitor to reset to 8 bits color after each driver change. *Playing with 10-bits enabled kills the framerate even with a gtx 1080 *Playing at native resolution require a dual gtx 1080 sli setup or lower your settings - some games will have black border because they do not support the resolution
I saw a previous comment stating this is not an HDR ready panel. But it supports 10 bit color depth. So with HDMI 1.4, can this really not utilize the specs that they put into it? That seems a little strange.
popfresk
I believe this display launched prior to HDR and HDMI 2.0 being widely available. It is best to run this one off DisplayPort if you have that option. As for HDR and 10bit, HDR means that there is a wider overall range of colors available while the number of bits refers to how many colors within that range can be displayed. The screen itself might not be able to display the full HDR range.
Picked mine up and set it up last night. Only minor complaints about the monitor itself...it takes like 10 seconds to boot up and...it's actually not as big as I thought it would be. LOL seriously I looked at some similar sized models at Best Buy but after I set it up last night, I thought...that's not as huge as I thought.
It took an extra month to get here but for all our complaints, this was a fantastic price. The lowest I've ever seen otherwise is $799 or so on eBay and, I believe, $899 on Black Friday. $729 shipped is amazing.
Are these factory new or refurbished? It seems like way too good of a deal, especially for Massdrop.

Not really. "Savings" on Massdrop are 90% based on stratospheric levels of infated MSRP.
But this monitor is currently on Amazon for over $900. That kind of actual savings is reallly really rare on MD.
Rochambeaux
The savings are pretty legit. Street price is closer to $1K and even then you're still saving 30% on a great monitor. I also wasn't charged any taxes and shipping within the US is $30.
You can find this price if you're lucky on eBay and not have to wait 2+ months BUT you do get a full 3-year warranty here too.
Does anyone know how much will one gets charged for custom for this one to get in the UK?
Was on the fence, until I saw that it didn't support HDR. How long before we get monitors at or below this price that support HDR via HDMI 2.0b, or Displayport 1.4?
EDIT: For that matter, a QHD display with HDR. LG is apparently coming out with one this year, though it won't offer quite the range that UHD displays have.
I'm viewing this on mine right now. Pretty nice monitor. The LOOOONG press of the joystick button to TURN ON the monitor threw me for a minute. So the power switch next to the power cable connection on back, but then you need to LOOOONG press the joystick to turn it on. That and my DP cable didn't work, had to use their DP-miniDP cable then it worked. And.....so far Windows 10 power management hasn't turned it off. Rebooted once but will try again.
Mine also shipped. Finally.
And mine finally shipped. Expected to arrive by 3/9, just over one month after the estimated ship date. Does this mean we all get $20 coupons because of this terrible hardship we've all been put through. Surviving without a 4K monitor has been such a struggle. The 3 QHD monitors I'm forced to use right now are literally torture, the pixels are as big as the ones in my HTC Vive. I don't know if I can wait until Friday unless I get a coupon lol
ThermalM16
lol first world complaint while I'm having to cherish the beauty of my 23 inch monitor in 1600x900 ūüė§
Hey, a few of these "interest free loans" of $100k+ and pretty soon you're talking real money.
thosj
Seriously. If I could hang on to this much cash for free, I'm positive I could make some real money. And like you said, if you have enough of these running, you could make some risky short term investments, and even cover a loss if needed.
So many delays, i would have payed more elsewhere to get it sooner if i had known it would take 2+ months. Still happy with the price and product, but would have appreciated having a more realistic time frame communicated in the begining
In case you guys didn't get an update, they're splitting them up at the warehouse and shipping the monitors out. Next update is 03/08.

I am a little worried that since I am not getting any email updates, their system thinks my order is complete and doesn't ship me a monitor with everyone else.
"Individual shipments are being prepared now! Our warehouse team received the group's bulk order earlier and have already broken everything down into the individual packages. As soon as your package is scanned into the courier's system an email will be sent with shipping confirmation and tracking info.
Expect another update from us on 3/8 or sooner if something comes up."
I don't even believe I cannot receive that after 2 months I purchased.
Leokumi
Update is scheduled for tomorrow so let's see what they have to say.
Let's see, what could one do with $110,000.00 in six weeks?
So the monitors just left the vendor and won't arrive at Massdrop until 2/27.
C'mon guys, if you were just honest about ship dates, maybe it wouldn't be so infuriating when you miss it by 6 weeks.
typeronin
Again, no email update sent to me...
Two weeks added to the ship date? 2/20 now? C'mon...

I also did not receive an email regarding the updated shipping date. I contacted support over a week ago to explain the issue about the transaction page listing the drop as "SHIPPED" when in fact it was only referring to the monitor arm. I also asked if they could confirm the original ship date of Feb 2nd but I still havent received a response yet. At this point any update at all would be appreciated.
HerbalRemedies
I guess they meant that the arms would ship on Feb 2nd and the monitors would ship on the 20th because the e-mail didn't mention anything about a delay. It was like everything was normal.
That could probably be a little more clear...
Does anyone know if this display also has built-in speakers?

CB3PO
Yes but they suck, really bad sound quality, you can barely understand human speech, it's comes out like from a barrel or those string phones ;)
Anzial
To expand on this, I recently had two monitors on my desk, the LG 34UC98-W, and the Samsung C34F791. The LG had 2x9W "Maxx Audio" speakers, so a higher end version of what's in this monitor. The Samsung had 2x7W speakers, no marketing name.
The LG speakers sounded tinny, like a smartphone speaker but louder. The Samsung, despite the lower wattage, was relatively clear and had adequate base for a bargain-bin solution. They sounded like HDTV speakers, which is adequate for basic use.
LG's choice of speakers in their devices are of low quality. They get the job done for desktop use, but they are disappointing for even basic media consumption.
Can I have the warranty service outside US? I mean in Hongkong for example
Leokumi
Probably not. You'll have to contact local LG service center and find out.
Waiting for OLED to come down in price...but this is tempting!
Still interested in this but last time there was a drop for this item, the supplier wasn't able to meet the demand and all of the orders were cancelled. Is there any way to know if orders placed this go around will actually be secured and go through as ordered?

Everyone on that particular drop was notified a few days after shipments were supposed to have gone out that they (the supplier) were not able to fulfill this drop. Massdrop did refund everyone's money at that time. I was more let done I didn't end up getting the monitor....All fine and well but don't sell your current monitor (like someone else in the discussion did prior) until you've got this one in your hands.
Hope this helps.
Mmmk
yes it helped haha. dont worry, i was only going to add to the monitor i currently have. again thanks for the detailed reply
I have a question with regards to the warranty. If it is shipped outside of the US (I currently live in Malta), would I still be able to have the warranty applicable to LG vendors here in Malta? Making it an international warranty. Just checking to see that if something is wrong with the monitor, I can take it to seller here in Malta rather than sending it back
Thank you for your patience! We found out earlier today that due to a manufacturing delay, our original vendor was backordered on the LG 31" Digital Cinema 4K Display 31MU97C-B. Our team worked to secure units from an alternate vendor and they have agreed to ship the individual orders directly to you. The current estimated ship date is tomorrow, 11/23.
Expect another update from us on 11/25 or sooner if something comes up.

Heather you're late on that update. Where my bundle of pixels at?
HeatherV
Heather it is unreasonable that the communication from Massdrop is sparse and inconsistent. If you say there will be an update on 11/25 please follow through with your word. You all are taking a group of understanding people for granted. I expect better service from Massdrop as a whole and you Heather, as the caretaker of our order. At this point the savings you provide on bulk orders hold little value as its been over a month since our orders were suppose to arrive. The least that can be done is timely and consistent communication.
It is also silly that when you update in this group that I dont get an email notification. I see new drops, and updates on who likes my comment. But no email when logistics updates information on a grossly late order. Please fix this. Your service is based on fundamental communication. Thank you
We are just awaiting shipment confirmation from the vendor. We have reached out to them and should get a bit more visibility in regards to when we can expect these in our warehouse.
We understand that the additional wait time is undesirable. If you would prefer to cancel your order, please contact Community Support using the ‚ÄúContact Support‚ÄĚ button in your transactions page (http://massdrop.com/transactions).
You can expect an update from us on 11/22 or sooner if something comes up.
If you have any questions, please visit our Help Center (http://massdrop.com/helpcenter).
Just about there! We've been in touch with the vendor regarding the group's order and they've let us know that they are still working to gather and pack the group's order for shipment to our warehouse in New Jersey. We will continue to check in with them throughout the fulfillment process and update the group again as soon as everything is en route to us!
Expect another update from us on 11/15 or sooner if something comes up.
If you have any questions, please visit our Help Center (https://massdrop.com/helpcenter).
Thanks again for joining this drop! We have submitted the group's order with the vendor for the LG 31" Digital Cinema 4K Display 31MU97C-B and they are working hard to prepare it for shipment.
As soon as the group's order is ready at the vendor's location, they will send the bulk shipment to our warehouse in New Jersey where our warehouse team will break it up into individual orders and ship them. The current estimated ship date from our warehouse is 11/15.
We will keep the group updated throughout the fulfillment process. You can expect an update from us by the end of the day Pacific Time on 11/8.
