Boxes - thats exactly how they were shipped, fedex label just stuck on the box - this isn't really any different then how i got my last ones from newegg
It has VESA mounts,

however the screws i have for my mount are too long, even the short ones, the monitors came with 2 screws each and they are SHORT, wont even fit through my mount plate. they also don't screw in very far, makes me somewhat weary of mounting them, stands are not the greatest but they work and seem solid enough, not really that much better then the ASUS i had previously, however definitely inferior to the 2408WFP i use at work
reflections with just the 2 desk palps i normally use are not bad, if io look yea i can see the reflection of everything on my desk, but when displaying content its really a non issue

What stand is that specifically (link plz tongue.gif) and would you recommend it?

Sorry it took me so long to put up some pics, anyways this is my setup, a Potalion 1440p 27" in landscape mode and an HP ZR22w in portrait (using display fusion to get different wallpapers on each screen). Some else already did un-boxing pics, so I didn't post them

Never realized that a 27" would be this big, had to put my speakers on their sides frown.gif

Just trying to show the colors.

Colors at an angle.

Setting I use to play Arkham City with 6870+6850 xfire, I didn't try it with AA, but I didn't notice jaggies without AA @ 1080p so I left it off to get more fps.

I agree on the screws they are way tiny. I need to go to the hardware store and get a few different sizes. I think they are M4's. Get a bunch of washers to and make it work. I have a desk mount coming from monoprice.

Its this stand
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0052AWGLE/ref=oh_details_o03_s00_i00

it worked fine with the 2 asus monitors, it only has 1 maybe 2 downsides, the largest one is that the locking nut that keeps the monitors from tilting down do to weight isn’t the best, you can easily solve it with 2 locking washers and some elbo grease with the included allen wrench,

the other is how it attaches to the desk, you can see in the photos on amazon that it genrally uses to pressure screws but depending on what kind of desk you have that may not work (depth issue) it didn’t work for me so i had to come up with my own solution. 2 scrap 2x4s and some 5 inch bolts

Those 2 issues aside i have no probs with the stand. i knew both of them before i purchased it, someone on amazon had dome a similar thing with mounting and the tilt screw needing a locking washer/tightening was well known, the 2 asus monitors i had weighed nearly as much as the 2 QH270s so i do not think the mount would have any issues with them due to their size

the 1 thing to know however is that with the mount it moves the monitors closer to you on the desk, some may not like that depending on how far they normally push them back

also why does spellcheck seemingly not work here (opera)?

Thanks Sibuna for those screws pictures. I'm eagerly awaiting mine so I can clear up teh mess on my table (an excuse). Those screws look really tiny and shallow! Could use some washers?

In any case..I'm having a hard time finding dual monitor arms for 27". That, or they are really expensive.. Are the single arm mounts a better choice? Would prefer to table mount rather than wallmount, may change the sitting location occasionally..

I saw that amazon/ebay has some..but it doesn't ship to Singapore. =(

the screws really are tiny, this pic shows it.

the long one + spacer came with the mount i linked above, for use with curved back monitors (worked fine on the ASUS) the short one is for flat back monitors, the tiny black one is the one that came with the QH270. the short silver one would need a large amount of washers to make fit correctly

Yeah I'm surprised people haven't chimed in with what they did. I know there must be plenty of people here that use a mount.

The included screws have a thread length of 3mm. I'm hoping to find some m4 x 5mm which may do the trick once the mount is involved. Or even a tiny bit longer with a couple washers.

Let me know, I should be receiving mine on friday. Hope to shop for a mount over the weekend!

Ordered one of those perfect pixel crossovers from AW for piece of mind. Hate the new logo, but I think it looks nicer than the Shimian (Seen that one in person under the UK Hazro rebrand)

2 days and it's in Paris already. Not long left. smile.gif
