By the way, the stand looks like a blatant copy of XB271HU's stand, and it's probably the same M270 from AU Optronics - as always tongue.gif

At least it's coming here! Very exciting as it seems that you guys really put a lot of effort into your products and really put them to the test before they end up in the stores.

No wider distribution in EU than Amazon is possible? I asked a big retailer in here and they were excited about the monitor, then they just reported back it's not possible to get Nixeus products :/

The most important question: is it the AUO's notorious M270 panel?

It is, but QC is supposed to be much better.

My one problem with this upcoming monitor is rather silly, but height is an issue. Sadly, I only have about 44 cm of vertical space to accomodate this beast, and it seems this monitor is cutting it extremely close. I wish the stand wasn't raised, but just flat, I think that'd shave off 2 cms.

I fear that it may not be possible. The price of this monitor is what, 350$? that's much less than they ask for the other freesync 144hz, Asus MG279Q. And at least 50% of AUO's M270 panels are trash.

So they not only sell it for less, but also dump around half of their panels? How would that net any profit?

And I can't imagine that Nixeus got a better deal with AUO than Asus pr AOC regarding panels. If they want a better QC, then they have to sort through the supply from AUO and scrap ~ 50% of their panels. That simply is not profitable for a 300-350$ monitor.

So in the end I think it's the same, just different package. Could be wrong, ofc.

If they have figured out the manufacturing method to cut down BLB, the QC will be better in that sense, it's not dependant on AUO. Which is maybe the worst defect with these panels.

well, yes, BLB is the worst. But, white uniformity is also awful, albeit it may be directly influenced by excessive BLB.

@Peter Nixeus, maybe you could comment on it? I guess you know how terrible the QC for the M270 panel is. Do you take extra measures to avoid BLB, or is it expected to be like in MG279Q and other monitors using this panel? I take it that AUO didn't sell you the "bezel-less" 2.6 version from XB271HU, but instead, the older & discontinued 2.3 version ? I'm pretty sure AUO didn't sell the v 2.6 to anyone but Acer.
