Displayport 1.2 has enough bandwidth for 2560x1440 @ 120hz.

2560x1440 @ 120hz - 15.75 Gbit (w/overhead) or 442.37 MHz.
Displayport 1.2 - 21.6 Gbit (720 MHz)

Yeah, good luck finding a 2560x1440 @ 120hz monitor. The more the pixels and/or the larger the screen, the harder it is to refresh faster, at least that's what I think.


I think I'm going to get one of these monitors, 300€ shipped when a Dell U2711 costs 630€ where I live.

Oh, I know they don't exist, it's too bad really, but they're definitely possible. You'd need a dp 1.2 video card also. Maybe in a few years wink.gif

Okay somehow I managed to read 29 pages of posts about these monitors and not realize it but anyway.So which of these monitors is the best? And is the tempered glass any different than normal or no glass monitors?

Thanks everyone for their input!

Yes, it's pretty bad, but completely tolerable. It has VESA mounts, so you can always buy yourself a better stand if needed.

Also, I'm not sure about 8 vs 10 bit.

To be honest, I don't really know why you're all so excited about this monitor.

I'm sorry, but in my opinion, that horrible backlight bleed, while it may be minimal compared to the samsung you came from, it's just not acceptable.

Sorry to ask twice but which is the best?

I would agree, but no AG and 1/2 the price of a u2711 speaks for itself. I've heard backlight bleed is worse when you first get a monitor (not sure how that works), and the bleed isn't nearly as dramatic during normal use.

I believe Dell Ultrasharps have bad backlight bleeds too... it's the nature of having edge-lit monitors (you want thin, there's the trade-off unless we start getting OLED panels)

I'd still pick the U2711, really. I like my AG coating.

I have an Ultrasharp and notice no backlight bleeding. Even at 100 brightness.
