Question. I don't have a use for this thing. And probably won't until almost Christmas, when I will get a Second GPU for my build coming up. Should I pull the trigger on one of these beasts for BF3, or wait until a more reliable company/seller is available? I don't really have the dough to spend either (I could make it work), but if it is that much of a steal and nothing in the 1440p market will be coming out for a while what do you guys think? Like I do a lot of watching on the market, and 1440p still seems a while away from reaching LG, Samsung, and others at lower prices.

Wait on it. These things aren't rare they are still in production. The price will just go down even more especially as more sellers step up.

Just want to inform you guys that in the middle of my "use to be flawless" tempered glass Shimian a dead pixel appeared. It is only noticeable when web browsing since most of the time there is a white background. In gaming and in movies a black pixel is much less noticeable.

16x9 is better for games since most games just chop the sides off of 16x9 for the 16x10 games. It really doesn't matter that much either way

Have you tried any pixel fixers or are you sure it's totally a dead pixel? frown.gif

EDITED because I can't read...lol Those Tempered glass ones seem to be what, 3 for three flawed in some way? Dust or dead pixel?

Also, is my math correct when I say roughly 25% of the Shimians were flawed, and roughly 20% of the Catleaps? I know there have been more Shimians bought, but we're talking percentages. smile.gif

The pixel only works for blue, for every other color its black. I'll use one of those programs tonight.

Whatcha think in terms of timeline? I figure by this time next year we will see a lot of major makers with 1440p screens, maybe a 20% cut in high-end makers' prices. Last year at this time, only Apple, NEC, Dell, and HP and a couple others had them, and they were like $300 more. Amiright?

Edit - A good example of this is the HP ZR2740w, which was announced a few weeks ago, and is $700 retail. I think by next year at this time, it will be worth it to pull the trigger on a name branded one.

Anyone try cleaning theirs yet? I got a smudge by accident on the LCD and tried to get rid of it. My typical LCD screen cleaner streaked like mad. Had to use 99% rubbing alcohol and still it doesn't look 100% perfect when under direct light.

With Apple putting high res displays in laptops and iPad, resolution is going to be the next cool thing, like slimness is now.

Next year, they'll be a ton of high res displays. But that's a year away, so u mind as well enjoy one of these now.

Good to know that, though. You think the alcohol damaged the screen? I only use hot water and a dry handkerchief to clean my monitors. Maybe alcohol to get stubborn smudges off of the housing, but not the screen itself. Can you see it if you took a pic?
