    Never had any issues with them, but definitely not the cheapest.

    buydig on eBay, using an ebay promotion.

    Which amazon seller? They are selling for $1,182.81 USD at the moment direct from Amazon. Its expensive but they will ship direct to Austraila.


    Just be careful with shipping/taxes, if you add freight forwarding its $109 USD for freight forwarding by the looks.

    What kind of price are you expecting? is the shipping free to the forwarder?

    Its a very big/heavy package unfortunately, 11.39 kgs!

    I found one pop up from a seller when i clicked on "buy new or used" there was 2 available brand new from a 3rd party seller at that 800USD price.


    Shipping was free and no taxes, i'm expecting after shipping and GST for this to cost me around $1600AUD total which should be a decent savings compared to buying locally.

    If they ever release it here of course.

    I don't think they've solved oled burn in, so I doubt we'll see PC monitors for it.

    Just received my monitor @myus.com, posting via DHL Express $120USD. I'm assuming DHL will contact me to pay GST once it arrives in Australia?

    Bart, did your monitor arrive yet?

    $120 USD at that size and weight with DHL is great.

    DHL should contact you about GST.

    My monitor hasn't arrived yet. It arrived in Honolulu today, its very slow for some reason!

    Freesync. Does it make NVIDIA's "G-Sync Compatible" list?

    Yes I did.

    Very happy with the monitor, everything looks amazing.

    HDR in the Division 2 looks great which i wasn't expecting as its only HDR400.

    My setup was going great... until after the firmware update. Now i have artefacts on the ride side of my screen. Can't get rid of them.
    New cable, power cycled everything. My old monitor works fine.

    Your LG 34GK950F-B arrived?

    Does lowering the refresh rate help?
