Just picked mine up
Paid the surcharge?
Nope, paid cash as I'd intended, no deposit
Good work! Enjoy the magnificence and welcome to the club : )

Does anyone know if an add-on for Chrome exists that would allow a Youtube video to fullscreen into Chrome windows mode? That way I could run Chrome in a window (top right snapped).
(I run mine extensively using Windows 10 window snapping into four quarters.)
What's chrome windows mode?
I think he means with chrome running in windowed (non full screen) an app that makes a YouTube video go full screen inside that chrome windowed size instead of full fulslscreen.
Just jumping on the owners club bandwagon.
I will also mention that I had mine for about 2 weeks before I also purchased the bratek arm mount and 200mm plate from PCCG as mentioned here previously. Having the added ability to adjust its positioning and be a bit flexible has helped tremendously with my user experience.
Welcome to the club
Link to the exact Bratek bracket?
It is the $49 one. Plus the 200mm bracket;
I was doubtful in the beginning, it does say for 10-23" displays. But it is the cheapest solution by far, everything else is over $100. So I took the gamble. After setting it up and tightening all the screws in place it is definitely holding the size and weight well.
Ah ok, thanks shark. Still deciding what/if I'll get one.
no ones playing PCars?
I'm definitely going to mount mine on an arm. The stand isn't as bad as I thought it may be but I'd still like the ability to tweak the position and better place my centre speaker under/behind the monitor once the stand is out of the way.
I know several people here are using those Bratek ones but they seem to adjust height by moving the arm up to a different hole on the pole whereas I want the ability to move it freely from my seat so I'm going for a Humascale one. Not cheap but I've used them before and they're nice, smooth and have lots of adjustment and options.
That's correct, height is definitely fixed on the Bratek one. Also keep in mind the different nuts and bolts you need, you may need a trip to Bunnings.
Once you get 4 screwed into the tv, and 8 into the bracket, it is fixed to the arm pretty darn securely. Then you fine tune your tilt, and tighten again, although you do get some movement on that front - you still need it pretty tight tho as it is such a big monitor.
I actually think the weakest link is the one bolt (and plastic bit) used in the height adjustment - if that goes tho I reckon I could always goto town on it with my elite modding skills
Just google, there are tons of screens and vids of pCars @ 4k.
Height is DEFINITELY not fixed..... it's adjusteable. You just need to loosen the grub screw?
Going to ditch my 24 + 27 set up for one of these i think.
If you see any going 2nd hand give us a hoy!
Great move! Let us know when you get set up with one : )
Actually I think there was one guy but that was a few weeks back, probably gone now.
My bad... mind you I would have thought having to adjust the height regularly would get somewhat annoying.. grub screw in, grub screw out, grub screw in, grub screw out...
