    I just bought this one from China:
    https://m.tb.cn/h.3A0rKuC?sm=085fec

    In terms of clarity, full hd of course has no match to 4K monitor. But it is only a 60hz monitor so don’t expect it would be as fluid as a 144hz monitor.

    I always prefer higher pixels (using PG27UQ at home) and I believe the RTX 2080 is up to the task of 4k gaming.

    I can't get any higher than 30.3k currently.
    I'm maxed out at +180/+1500 while Johnkssss can go up to +200

    I can't wait to see your result.

    Once again, I'm the one with the burnt Area 51M.

    I have TERRIBLE news.

    So it seems like they managed to find out what the issue was, I haven't got any details. But due to this, there is a recall of Most of the existing motherboards and CPU's for the Area 51M to make necessary correction to address this issue.
    This caused an immense shortage on all orders of Area 51M, and it seems like there is A LOT of orders.

    My order went in production This monday 25th of March. The estimated delivery is 29th of April!!!!

    I will be without a laptop for A MONTH!!!

    Also this is VERY important news here, spread the word if not already done. Once again there was a recall for Most of the existing motherboards and CPU's. Which could mean, every existing Area 51M user could potentially have this problem. Once again don't know much details. Just sharing the info I got.

    Which panel do you have the LG Phillips or auo 144 panel ? There seems to be a variance in quality of the 2 panels in terms of contrast ..

    I didn’t know they had two different panels. I’m happy I got the LG as it’s much brighter than other panels I’ve seen. Measured it at 340 nits

    explains why my order from march 9th got delayed 3 times, and is still not shipped/built but just entered production. My order status page still shows april 25th delivery date :( but if this guarantees that my unit wont fry itself so be it. Does anyone know if I should request a discount for all the delays ? will it be accepted ?

    After 4 weeks of use. During playing Metro Exodus, suddenly pc went down, with smoke and burn smell coming out of it. Laptop completely died without giving any response. At the time, I was the 6th person that had this issue, in only the 1st month of the release of the laptop.
