Holy crap, this monitor is now even cheaper than the ASUS 1080p LED's that are on newegg. If the monitor drops to under $250 I will buy another 6970 nd crossfire and use 2 monitors!

What i been hearing is that all the perfect pixel ones are getting back ordered so this whole cheap IPS thing might just be a short fling, i ordered 3 biggrin.gif

HELP, I was just working on my shimian connected to my laptop and suddenly the blue light just turned off and the screen won't power on!
i tried taking it out of the AC, switching places on the cord extender, taking the power cords in and out and nothing, no response from the screen.
I barely had it for two weeks.
I loved the screen until now and I am at a loss, was in the middle of a big coding homework which is already making me anxious as it is :/

do you have a multimeter? if not go pick one up for cheap and test the power, its super easy

It might just be that damn power adapter

How do I check whether this is HDCP compliant using my ATI card? Everyone who I see says it works has checked it with Nvidea control panel, can't see the same option. I bought a blu-ray drive off eBay to work with it (came with no included software) so trying PowerDVD which's compatibility checker says it should work but it doesn't.

Cheers!

The Korean monitors are not HDCP compliant. To run a blu-ray you might need a program like AnyDVD to override this.

I have seen people report no problems and that Nvidia control panel states they are HDCP compliant

For my PCBANK using an ATI card, I need to use AnyDVD to watch blu-rays.

Do every seller sends a power cable and a dvi cable?

I keep reading about people saying these Korean models lack overdrive which seems to confuse or deter some potential buyers. This simply is not true

Of course they are over driven, other wise they would not be able to achieve such low measured response times. See this chart:

http://down.playwares.com/xe/files/attach/images/53/283/066/6ab3c0c5d1e8c3e01f06db6c55a13abc.jpg

The Crossover is faster than many TN panels....how could it be if it lacked overdrive?

Having used the 27Q LED-P and seeing it overshoot (bright glow/shield or halo forming around moving objects) only confirms that they are actually over driven a little too much. If they lacked overdrive there would be very noticeable colour smearing even with very slow camera movement, smearing like you would find on some of the older C-PVA panels and the measured response times would not be so low.
