If your tracking details don’t shed any light on where your order is, contact us on (03) 9000 0545 and we’ll help work out where your order is.
If you’ve clicked on this tab, you’re obviously looking for a reason or two on why you should shop for your gaming goodies at Gamer Gear Direct, rather than those other online stores.
And we’ll (not so) humbly say there’s lots of reasons we think you should shop with us…and not hand over your hard-earned cash at one of those big box retailers like Harvey Norman or JB Hi-Fi.
First up, we’ve got a policy here at Gamer Gear Direct we like to call…
100% customer happiness guaranteed (we mean it!)
OK, so the above title might sound a little corny to you, but it’s true.
We’ll bend over backwards to ensure you are 100% happy and satisfied with everything you buy from us.
We want you to tell your friends and family about your experience with us (and hopefully that’ll mean they visit our website, too).
And the only way you’re going to do that is when you’re happy with our service, right?
See, we’re not one of those big box electronics stores with a multi-million marketing budget. Those companies treat you like a number. Because they can afford to! They’ve got money coming out of their ears.
We’re different. We’re a small Aussie business. Every single potential customer that hits our website is precious to us (that includes you).
So, again, we’ll do everything we can to make sure you’re over the moon with your Gamer Gear Direct shopping experience.
Do you think Harvey Norman can promise that kind of service? Probably not.
But look, you don’t have to take our word for Here’s what our customers are saying about us…
Ashley Woolnough says: ‘I want to say a huge thank you to Blake and the team at Gamer Gear Direct. The service has been absolutely impeccable from the moment I first looked at items to the moment they were delivered. I bothered Blake quite a bit, but nothing was too much trouble and he went above and beyond to help me. 5-star service’.
Joe Platt had this to say: ‘Just want to say how awesome the gaming chair is that we bought. Amazing quality, helpful service and the fastest delivery of an online purchase. Arrived Next Day!’
And this from B. Richardson: ‘Purchased an Audeze headset and it arrived inside two days. Thanks for the fast shipping and great service!’
That’s not an exhaustive list, either. There are plenty more happy customer stories we could share with you.
But let’s move on…
Five-star customer support. We’re just an email, phone call or live chat away. We’re here to help you day or night
‘Officially’ we’re around to support you and help you out with your questions and queries between normal business hours (Mon to Fri, 9am to 5pm).
But just between us…we’re pretty much here to help you out around the clock, 7 days a week.
We don’t switch off. For example, it’s not unusual for one of our team to be helping a customer with a shipping request at 9pm at night.
If you need a hand with anything just email us, call (03) 9000 0545 or open the live chat function and we’ll help you in any way we can.

For Gaming: This screen has some serious ghosting to the point where you see dark smears in games. It is especially bad on dark to light transitions. If you like dark mode or play fps shooters, I do not recommend.Picture Quality: Picture quality is meh. Inconsistent colors between left and right sides of the screen. May be just my unit, but the left side is visibly greener than the right. The screen doesn't use real HDR (no dimming zones), it simply interprets HDR input.Brightness: as advertised. Just a note, the screen brightness is locked to 50% at the highest overdrive setting.
Follow the instruction and try to use Thunderbolt3 to DP cable to get to 5120x1440 @60 or 120Hz, no luck. Monitor still stuck at 1080p. Try it 2 days, no luck...don't want to waste time so pack it back and return it.Not 100% plug and play for sure.
I am happy with the monitor overall. You get what you pay for. Just a warning to others.Fonts get blurry when not actively working in a document (not in every case but consistently in Slack). If I start to type or move the mouse over the text it clears us. The other thing is when I take a screen short (first image) the text is washed out
5120 x1440p resolution is only available when using DP 1.4. When using HDMI 2.0 or USB-C the max resolution is 3840 x 1080. This means that for most use cases when plugging in a second monitor you have a low res fuzzy resolution. Could save money and just buy a monitor that does this res natively. The Samsung C49RG9 can do 5120 x 1440P over HDMI and DP with the response time higher over DP why cant this monitor do the same?
Performance wise this monitor is great but the picture color is really off.
