Where's the price?
To negotiate the best possible price for our members, we must agree to hide our prices externally.



For what it's worth, I have this monitor and it's fantastic. I've got mine clocked to 80Hz and have zero issues with frame skipping or any artifacts. I would also highly recommend you get a good quality DisplayPort cable, it made the blacks look blacker and the colours looked ever so slightly better too. May be placebo, but do some research on it, you may be surprised at what you find. Also, yeah, the price could be better... but keep us peasants in New Zealand in mind - I paid $1300 NZD for mine - that's about $930 USD. Makes me sick.
Come on massdrop this is new on eBay for $529 without counting a potential 8% ebay cash back with no tax and free shipping. this price is a joke

sold by newegg so totally legit. if ebay sent a 8% ebay bucks which they do once a week , we talk about this baby for $487 , i.e. $172 dollar below massdrop. if massdrop drops it to $475 then it's a deal
PaulHenta
Yeah, chances of MD matching that deal which, unlike MD, is ready to ship, is next to nil.
Correct me if I am wrong. But the pricing on this seems absurd for what it is. I guess I'm still going to have to wait a few more years.
Point is. I would expect 4k and 120hz at this price point. But I'm crazy or naive.

It's true. I agree and know. I'm just dreaming that we reach a level of parity soon. Oh well. I'll hold off for longer.
Well this is bad deal if you can get it at $529 new from eBay
Edit: Support was actually really quick to respond via the email registered to my account.
Unfortunately they did not have more information related to a revised ship date.
5/5 for support though.
Is there any information about whats going on? Did LG say it's going to take 30 days to fill the orders? The email was very vague and generic.
Yeah i got it!!
Who's get the drop ?
14ms response time, 60 hz? Uhhh no thank you.

The thing is I readed that without freesync the 75hz will cause frame skipping. Can you confirm this?
Dnguyen926
I have been using 2 of these monitors on a NVIDIA GTX 1070 card for some time now and do not experience frame skipping.
What is the refresh rate on this thing? I'm getting a 1080ti very soon and I need to know if this is the monitor for me or I have to drop 2 grand on a gaming ultrawide.
Alex1514
This will run at 75hz on the 1080ti graphics card.
is this monitor curved?
Survivorman18
yes

NICE. I'm glad to see a site that has them cheap and is legit, I've seen a lot of false advertising with curved screens. Might have to pick one of them puppies up! Thanks for the lead!
I thrive in filth. Existence is petulant ;)
Hello there, would like to join the drop. I want to know if the warranty is a global warranty or just US warranty or other? That means if the monitor is broken, should I just send the monitor back to US or give it to a local distributor for rma? I live in Hong Kong and if I can just give the monitor to my local distributor that would be awesome. Thanks for answering.

The warranty is from LG themselves so just contact your local vendor

@B.Hutch It would be really nice to hear the official statement
Just got it today. My estimation for shipping was more or less dead on. Easter caused some delay, which was frustrating. Seems like i won the pixel lottery, not one dead pixel as far as i can tell after a quick check. Some bleeding along the bottom of the screen, but to be honest, i expected it to be more, or at least affect all four corners.
Just got mine! It's exactly what I imagined it'd be. I think I saw someone ask if it had a thin film, and I thought to myself, how can someone not tell? Now I too see the screen top corners and feel it's not completely flush/adhering to the corners. Almost as if you're supposed to pry up and peel it off. This can't be the case I reason.... Right?

Yeah, i am waiting for LG to respond to my email, will post answer asap. Ignoring it might not be a good idea, at least from what i've heard it could create more heat than the screen can handle.

Life’s Good! Thank you for contacting LG Electronics Email Service and I hope everything is going well with you. It’s my pleasure to assist you. In response to your concern, our brand new monitors do not have protective film on the screen itself. Only the bezel corner part of the monitor has one.
I got mine yesterday. Was super easy to set up, I actually had to order a longer Display Cable since my PC is sitting somehow far.
So far I have seen no problems with ghostly visage, nor after marks after long hours of use.
Since it is my first time using a curvy monitor, I had a slight dizzyness because it was a lot to check! I am using HDMI cable for now, soon to change to display,but so far, this thing is a MONSTER. Worth every dollar.

Thank you :) How are you enjoying your monitor so far dude? What's the difference between a Consumer and Commercial grade model? On CDW, they have the seemingly exact same monitor, with a 1 year warranty, for nearly $100 cheaper and it ships in just 3 days. I don't understand why anyone would go for this drop when you can insure your monitor through Square Trade for like 4 years for $50. This drop makes no sense to me.
DHL's tracking is ofcourse experiencing issues right now... But i sincerely hope you splurged for the express delivery to international customers. Been a long wait now, and could really use the additional desk space before the 19th of April.
TheCroatoan
After doing some investigation i estimate the package for european buyers will arrive possibly around the 16th of April. That's using FedEx and UPS's transit times. Some sources say DHL is quick (3 days) on deliveries to major cities, and normally your domestic post companies take it from there. In my case, if DHL delivers to Oslo, i should expect between 1 and 2 days for it to arrive here. I have my doubts, but i'll cross my fingers and toes.
I just got a shipping notification. Does this mean label was simply created, or has the warehouse actually recieved the shipment?
Load 3 more comments
it also says the label has been made, and I will be updated when it ships...
so I think it's safe to say it hasn't been shipped... beats me. I just hope it delivers on Saturday like anticipated
JesseLN
yeah, i just checked teaching and nothing shipped. we probably won't see shipping until monday
The ship date was suppose to be April 3rd, but I haven't heard anything yet. This is my first massdrop purchase so I'm not sure what to expect, but some type of update soon would be nice.
Dookie67
That's the reply that I've got this morning, I'm very dissatisfied, it's 7 days delay + the days they will need to pack it again.
Bulk order shipped! The vendor informed us that the group's order was picked up and is on its way to our warehouse in New Jersey. Based on the tracking provided, the order is scheduled to arrive on 4/10. Expect another update from us on 4/11 or sooner if something comes up.
For 65$ shipping price I hope it will get to me after all of this in one week.
GalS
And I was hoping it might arrive sooner hehe. That's something that happens in massdrop right? =P Oh well. EDIT: Got shiptment notification! No tracking info yet, how fast does massdrop ship? hehe
so whats happening mane it shipped cuz i dont have an email yet
search
When are these going to be delivered or shipped? Any way to find out?
Just confirming this monitor ( 34CB88-P) has a 1900R curvature?
Any updates when I'm going to get mine?
Will this ship to europe?
I'm running this card: Sapphire Radeon R9 390 Nitro 8GB
Anyone tried this combo with mmo/fps games yet? I'm worried it won't cut it

No problem!
Good to hear that, i just bought RX 480 8GB to with this screen, hope it get for us all fast.
Any chance I might receive this earlier? heh, I'll be waiting on it, getting rid of my monitor setup now. No biggie, will rely on the laptop until then.
What kind of GPU should I buy to run this screen? Nvidia 1060? Or AMD is better with this screen?

Thanx for the replay, I also thought about the RX480, He is in my budget . Does it matter how much Memory the card will have for the high resolution or dont? 6/8 is the highest right now.
GalS
higher resolution does use more memory, but with 6 or 8 you should be good. Chances are you won't be playing with settings high enough to fill up that VRAM.
> FreeSync
Uninterested.

aren't you cool
Come on baby, that me see that mass drop.
So, this is cheaper on amazon, and has free prime shipping.

False... amazon listing was 689$, wasnt available with prime, and wasn't through lg...
no warranty, not comparable
JesseLN
Link?
Is there a possibility for shipping insurance? I'm kind of paranoid about something of this size/price being shipped across the country.
