Ordered for store pick up and picked up today. Just got it set up. It didn't come with DisplayPort cable but did come with an HDMI. Luckily, I had an extra DP cable since my HDMI port is wonky. It'd be nice if it had two DisplayPorts so I can plug my laptop into it too (which is also DP only), but I suppose I can always get an adapter.

Stand is "meh" and wobbles a little when I type, but it does tilt a little and there is VESA support. I will probably end up going the VESA mount route anyway.

I have it side-by-side with a 1440p 24-inch Acer IPS Free-Sync monitor. Of course, by comparison the Acer seems a lot sharper because of the higher PPI, but this one is still pretty sharp. I was concerned about the pixel density, since a 27" is more ideal for 1440p, but this one still looks pretty good despite the pixels being slightly more visible. It is massive compared to my little Acer, which was a bit small for work/games.

The screen looks less vibrant on this Lenovo than with the Acer, and the colors are more reddish overall. I'd have to do some tests/calibration to know which is actually more accurate. Curiously, the colors look almost the same if I turn the Blue Light filter ON on my Acer and leave it OFF on this Lenovo and then up the Lenovo's brightness/contrast. The menu controls are terrible and there are less options overall, especially compared to the dedicated knob on the back of the Acer and the wider range of options. It isn't a big deal but it is something to consider. Edit: Also, for some reason, the button that is labeled with a back arrow is the one that goes forward, and the one that looks like it goes forward is the one that goes back. Just to make it more annoying for the user I suppose.

Overall, seems pretty sweet for the price and it will be nice to have a larger display for gaming/work. VESA mount support makes up for mediocre stand, and the colors look pretty good even if they might need a little tweaking. No dead pixels or flicker problems, or anything of that nature. I'd say it is a good buy unless you really want a faster refresh rate for gaming instead of an IPS display, or would prefer a 27" for a slightly more ideal pixel density.

The last FP deal was a bit meh really. 2 pages of comments 40ish thumbs up; no real reviews; backorders and cancellations .... pretty meh like I said.

Can anyone give some first hand reviews of this monitor? I have $50+ in rewards to burn and looking for reasons not to use them up on this deal.

Got this in December at the same price. It is a decent monitor. Colors out of the box were not that great, but was able to adjust them to my liking with some trial and error adjustments. I also bought the Samsung UJ59 4K monitor (U32J590UQN) at the same time ($329 from BB) and did a side-by-side comparison of the two. I decided to keep the Lenovo and return the Samsung. Samsung was of course sharper and also had better menu controls. Though for my needs Lenovo is sharp enough. Deciding factor for me was color accuracy (just based on visual adjustments, no calibration). I could dial in a more natural looking and comparatively more color accurate picture on the Lenovo, which is kind of expected on IPS vs VA panel.
Haven't really tested response time as I am not using it as a gaming monitor, but for general use including watching photos and videos. Brightness is more than adequate for regular use. Haven't noticed any issues with screen uniformity or light bleed.

Couple of things to keep in mind - it does not have built-in speakers and the stand is completely non-adjustable. Overall I am happy with the monitor.

Stand does tilt up/down(-5° / 22°), but that's about it.
Edit: Specs from Lenovo [lenovo.com]

Just picked up mine in store. I'm very happy with it so far! 1440p is the perfect resolution for a 32 inch monitor with no scaling involved. Colors look great to my eyes after the built-in color calibration of macOS, and the 75Hz refresh rate is a nice bonus.

For under $200 after tax, I don't think you can beat it.

Check the monitor settings. The default color mode is literally called "reddish". If you change it to "neutral", you might get a more natural color from it out of the box.

Also, thank you for your review! Very detailed.

Except the gift card is a physical gift card which can take a day or 2 to get to you - no guarantee the monitor will still be available by then at this price.

I prefer the HP Pavilion which you can get at this price normally.
