Well, I received my monitor today! Yah! It has one bright pixel in the upper RH corner and a slight bit of backlight bleed in the LH lower corner. Fit and finish are pretty good... maybe 6/10 (one point off for the wobbly base) but, the kicker with this panel is the image quality.. which is exceptional!
Out of the box, the calibration is not bad. The whites are shifted towards the blue end though. HD video playback is good with a slight amount of ghosting during fast action. The brightness buttons work sporadically though which is a bit of a pain!
Also, this was a 2D so, no OC till I get the PCBs I guess...
I am running this with dual GT545s (2 gigs total) in SLI with i7 2600K (OC'd to 4.2) and 8 megs ram ATM. Boot drive is a 120G Samsung 830 SSD.
And... yes, this is an Alienware Aurora. No, I didn't pay retail for it ($2100) I had a coupon from Cnet and it was on sale so OTD was $1173 (SSD was added later). :-)
OH... seller was awesome on Amazon. Shipping was super fast from KR! I wasn't expecting this till tomorrow. This morning I checked tracking and it said it was in Anchorage Alaska... LOL!
