This monitor is on sale again at Best Buy [bestbuy.com] and Amazon [amazon.com] for $160.

Best Buy also has "Open Box" ones for $144, and new and open box are both also on eBay from Best Buy.(New [ebay.com]) (Open Box [ebay.com])

Not quite as good as previous sale of $150 but still a deal. (To preempt the inevitable comment, yes, there was a deal where it was listed for $100 at TigerDirect with some orders going through and some people price matching it successfully for a super slick deal).

I like the monitor. Worth mentioning about mine is the following:
  • The edges of the screen dim when viewed off angle (pics [imgur.com]). If you sit very close, the angle from your eyes to the screen edges might be wide enough that it becomes noticeable. It doesn't from where I sit.
  • If you only "finger-tighten" the screw that attaches the stand (the screw has a little handle you can grip) it will wobble badly with the slightest bump. Screwdriver tightening helped a lot, though it still wobbles a bit if I bump the desk.
  • The monitor will forget calibration settings if left in the default preset of "Web Pics." Go into the monitor's settings and find the presets (called Novo Vision I think) and change it to "Text" and any calibration adjustments you make should "stick."
  • It is too bright at default settings, I recommend you turn down the brightness.
  • It has 2 inputs, HDMI and DisplayPort. Not all PCs with an HDMI port will be able to drive this monitor at its full resolution. I think you need HDMI 1.3 or higher. (If you are stuck with 1920x1080 as the highest resolution option you might still be able to get it to work at 2560x1440 by adding a custom resolution [google.com]. Try at your own risk.) All versions of DisplayPort support 2560x1440@60Hz. Only an HDMI cable is bundled with the monitor.
  • There is no set of mounting holes for a wall mount.
  • There is a 1 year Lenovo warranty. Best Buy's 4 year protection plan is $20, Amazon's is $26.
Good deal?

I've been looking for a monitor for my Thinkpad with the QHD display. The issue mentioned w regard to the screen..do you think it might be light bleed causing the issue w the edges of the display? I'm tall and tend to sit higher than the bottom edge of the display and questioning if this might be overtly noticeable. I love the Dell monitors but considering they're double the price this could be a good compromise.

Maybe some pictures will help. I set the background to white and photographed the left edge of the screen from straight on and from a wide angle.

I have this monitor (got it from the $150 deal) and love it. It has great color reproduction and the higher resolution compared to 1080p monitors is really nice. I upgraded to it over my previous 1080p Dell Ultrasharp.

I really have no complaints since I don't need a VESA mount. It'd be nice if it came with built in speakers but my bluetooth ones work fine. I would recommend it to anyone interested in a solid-yet-cheap 1440p monitor.

FYI At least 5 people in that thread said they got round stands even though the Lenovo page showed V stands when they made the order. I didn't see anyone say they got the V stand, so I'm not sure if it even exists Bigeye.

Lol @ telling people to spend just about double for a better product. I'm going to go into every thread and suggest spending double to get something better, because that's completely logical.
