Yeah I was wondering the same, I insta-bought a monitor last night. Woke up and realized I could of bought a non-glass monitor because there was soo many different versions. I emailed red-cap today to see if the one I bought was tempered glass. I got the QH270-Lite

As I can see on EMS tracking, my monitor has arrived to Amsterdam airport.

The last update says it is handed over to customs... Do all the shipments go through customs? Or does this mean mine is 'picked out' and will be retained there to find out more?
I dont want to wait much longer tongue.gif

The lite version has no tempered glass or speakers smile.gif

All shipments that come in to countries go through customs. This is 100% normal.

Hrmmmm, I really want to jump the gun for this resolution but want a second opinion.
Anyone think these monitors are going to be outdated soon (by 1 year or so)? With all these retina displays being announced (15" ultrabooks with 2800x1800 , AIO having 3840x2160) ect ect. I really want a monster resolution, but don't want to give out to the first fancy/cheap monitor i see tongue.gif

Started looking at those monitors and was wondering if there was any significant differences between the different models? I know CrossOver has a better bezel and stand(with pivot available),but what else?
And are those monitors for gaming?

LG started manufacturing a new IPS technology this year and in a few months/next year we will see whats so good about them. The new tech might not even be IPS but OLED or something like that. Still, I don't see that much of a jump in mid-range consumer monitors if we still have 1920x1080 as a standard so this monitor will most likely still not be outdated for the next few years IMO.

Very true, and I also realized there is a limit of 1600p(or something near there) on most if not all the graphics cards currently, which is sure to hinder any development.

Not any more, you'd just plug in two connectors and it could treat it like eyefinity smile.gif. The monitor would have to support that though.
