Of course its not going to look good compared to 2560x1440. rolleyes.gif On the other hand it doesn't look un-natural like 1080p does on these displays.

What do you mean "maps in perfectly"? I still prefer 1440p over 1080p. I didn't believe my eyes when I actually saw one of the Yamakasi monitors. 1440p is a huge difference from 1080p. I didn't know how many details I was missing out on.

I got a QH270 from dreamseller and it has a strange full screen glitch that happens occasionally. I have tried new cable, new power supply and new video card and the monitor continues to glitch. Anyone else have a similar problem and able to resolve it without sending it back? I have two panels and the second one works perfectly so I figure its not my computer setup as I have switched them out 1 for 1 and the good monitor never glitches and the 'bad' monitor glitches in any configuration. This glitch doesn't occur constantly, but happens every once in a while so its pretty annoying but usable. I emailed dreamseller but they want video of the glitch before they let me send it back frown.gif

takes no time to get used to it. even days later im still in complete awe of just how beautiful everything is, and how much more desktop space i gained. i went from a 27" 1080p to the 27" 1440p and everything fits so much nicer, looks better, and is so much easier on the eyes. gaming is a complete bliss to my eyes.

ok so ive decided to not care about hooking up anything to these besides my computer. 1 last question, as most video cards dont offer 2 dual link DVI connections, i assume anyone running 2 are using a display port to DVI adapter. I know it has to be active to work at 1440p, does the cheapish one at monoprice work?

For day to day use it'll be great, but don't expect to play ANY games at 1440p with that gpu.

Hello,

I am currently looking for a cheap IPS monitor (for photo editing/movies/a bit of gaming/general stuff) to buy, and I had my eyes almost set on Dell 2412M. But then I saw Korean monitors. They look amazing on paper, and reviews are good too. So im really into getting one of those. But before i commit to buy it, i wanted to ask you couple of questions (I was thinking of getting CATLEAP Q270 MULTI, if HDMI is needed)

a) I have Asus G73 laptop (ATI Mobility 5870), and only HDMI. Would I be able to:
i) Get cheapest version of q270 and use Dual Dvi converter to HDMI?
or
ii) Do i need to get multi input version and use HDMI directly? Would I get full 1440p using HDMI?

b) Outscalling:
i) Would it upscale every movie to 1440p (full screen, not windowed), and would it upscale gaming in less than 1440p to full screen aswell?
ii) if i ever decide to connect anything else than a computer to this monitor, would it upscale it to 1440p or show it in windowed mode? (like console, camera, tv box if possible?)

c) Someone mentioned, that input lag is noticable when upscalling, is it true?

d) Would i be able to overclock (get a bit better refresh rate) on this monitor with my Mobility 5870?


So overall, I would like to know if i would always get 1440p with my mobility 5870 using HDMI, and if there would be any problems at all.

Thank you for all the answers!
phemark
