Hm. I did not know that.

Doesn't seem like the Dell U2711 and Dell U3011 support full resolution and refresh on their monitors using HDMI, although you can get around it by editing EDID values and such??

That you could probably poll an owners club to see if anyone's using HDMI instead of DL-DVI.

Got my Catleap Q270SE in yesterday and got a chance to test it out late last night. The stand is absolute crap it wobbles at the slightest touch but I will be replacing that when I can. So far I haven't detected any dead or stuck pixels but I only played with the monitor for maybe 45 minutes. I do notice some light bleed but it is not severe. The setup was very easy and all I had to do was swap the power cable for a spare PSU cable. The supplied DL DVI is short and doesn't seem to be great quality so I will probably look into replacing that as well. Overall for $350 I couldn't be happier.

I would like to order a Crossover 27Q from DCsamsungMall, but it says it is included a free power adaptor for US & Canada. I do not need that adapter, as I live in Europe.
Did anyone order from him? And did you got the original Korean / European power supply also?

And what about Red-cap... He has the monitor even 20$ cheaper. How is he?

Do all the sellers mark the package as a gift?

Are there concerns about these monitors not being compatible with future generation gpus? Since there are already current generation GPUs that are listed as unsupported.

I have looked into this before for someone else... Dell monitor specifications suggest that their HDMI only allows you to run it at 1080p, but that is apparently only the case because Dell assumes that you would only use the HDMI connector with typical 1080p devices (playstation, xbox, cable box, etc). The HDMI connectors on the U2711/U3011 are actually capable of 1440p/1600p, and indeed with some modifications can be used that way... as has been done before. I remember that some googling into this before gave me some ready-made files for that purpose, so if you really want to know more, you should be able to find that as well. smile.gif

The unsupported GPU's tend to be GPU's with VGA, Single Link-DVI, and HDMI connectors... which don't work with Dual-Link DVI monitors but also do not convert to Dual-Link DVI. Modern GPU's all have Dual Link DVI connectors (easy direct 1 on 1 connection) and display ports (which are the future... they can be converted to Dual-Link DVI just fine, although at a fairly high cost). In the future graphics cards will focus more and more on Display-Ports, but that won't make these monitors impossible to use... after that, we will most likely see the advance of Thunderbolt connectors... weather there will be converters to DL-DVI for that we will have to see, but that applies to all current monitors.

I can finally vote in for the post in the OP.

My Shimian came in today. It is perfect. No dead/stuck pixels to speak of.

The scary thing was that it made it here from Korea just in the monitor box. No bubble wrap or anything. mad.gif

However my concerns were quickly cleared as the screen powered on and no dead pixels were noted. Now to try the to OC the monitor and to play some BF3!

I bought the QH270-IPSB last Thursday from Dream-Seller and it arrived today.

I picked this one mostly because it was the cheapest price and I kinda like that the stand (like the rectangle base more than the circle bases).

I had it shipped to work, so soon as it arrived I unpacked it and plugged it into my desktop. Looks absolutely perfect. No damage from shipping, no dead or stuck pixels. Just looks amazing, I'm so happy I got it.

The DL-DVI cable is kinda short, so I'm going to need to order a longer cable.

This is going to replace my ailing Dell 3007 monitor (it's having screen quality issues and out of warranty). It's a bit more noticeably smaller than I expected. Screen size is a little over 2 inches shorter and a little under 2 inches narrower. But I got the same 2560 horizontal pixels and am not giving up much vertical pixels and the PPI is a bit better. Not to mention this is LED and much cooler than my Dell, so I'm happy wit the trade off.
