Has anyone noticed premature backlight aging with their monitors?

When I first got mine, I measured the max brightness with my X-Rite i1 Display 2 at slightly over 300 cd/m^2. Minimum brightness was around 88 cd/m^2.

Now, a few weeks later, I did these measurements again and max brightness is only around 265 cd/m^2. Minimum is now at around 73 cd/m^2.

If anyone else with a calibration unit could measure theirs for comparison, that would be great.

I've picked up the shimian lite and absolutely love it.

The only issue I seem to have now, is that I currently have an HDMI cable out of my GTX 680 that runs to my TV for movies and such. I'm super lazy so to switch back and forth I just use Windows+P to change between the monitors.

Sometimes when I go from my TV to the Shimian, the Shimian will just blink blue and a message will pop up saying "no projector found"

I have to actually unplug the DVI cable and then re-set it for the signal to pick up again.

Has anyone else had this issue? Any ideas for why? it's not a gigantic deal but is a big PITA.

I appreciate it!!!

EDIT: I should note that power cycling the monitor doesn't help either. I have to unplug and plug the DVI cable.

That's if you want glass but worried about the dust(which is just like me).
I just don't be worried about dmging the screen while cleaning so that's why i wanted glass.
I heard it makes the screen more glossy but then again, rumors rumors smile.gif

Hi! I tried searching for "qh270-ipsi" but i did not know wich one that you were talking about. Can u link it? smile.gif I was going to get te "LITE" model (without tempered glass) just to avoid getting dust. How do you know that there wont be any dust on/in it?

Ordered from Red-Cap Tuesday morning, got it Thursday afternoon. Perfect monitor, no dead pixels or light bleed issues. I have not tried to overclock it yet...dont know if I will.

It's on the stand it came with, with my two w2408's flanking it. Thinking about two more...its very nice smile.gif

i posted this in the Crossover thread.. but it can be useful for some of you here too.

IF anyone is interested, i just bought this stand from Walmart.com for $40. It tilts, rotates, height adjustable, and looks to be very well built. This is mounted on the Crossover 27Q (which does none of those things)

Is it true that you can no longer buy a Catleap with a higher default refresh rate off of ebay?

Read this several places, can't find anything to confirm or deny this.

Pretty much confirmed. Some sellers have older stock but other then that afaik it's a no go.

The panels haven't changed one bit,it's the pcb. AFAIK parts became harder to get and more expensive so they made it cheaper.

Makes sense.

Also, what's the deal with customs? Do people have to pay a fee to the delivery man? Or is everything taken care of on the seller's end?
