So the only ones that overclock hz wise are the 2B revision and those can't be found anymore?

Sad day, looks like my FW900 will live on.

I got my tracking number yesterday and received my monitor today. Talk about fast shipping! Anyways I ordered my Potalion pixel perfect from BCC. All I can say so far is, "WOW!" Fantastic monitor.

Hello guys,

At first, Sorry for my terrible english!

I've bought a shimian on ebay from Ta_planet,

The monitor is perfect, no bleedlight or defect pixel, but it only work with the 1.20m dvi-d original cable !

With my multimonitoring and desk setup, i need at least 1.80m of cable, but it didn't work frown.gif




For the story:

Since yesterday i've maked nonstop test about this issue, for recapitulate:
All tests i ve maked are on 2 computers with one nvidia gtx580 and one amd hd4870
The monitor work god with dvi-d 1.20m original cable, but this cable is to small, i've got mutimonotoring setup with big desk.


Ive bought 3m DVI-d dual link cable, it did not work on first try, but after 2 unplug/deplug on my G.Card it work for about 2 hours, after one reboot no more working, monitor detected by G.C but no reaction on monitor.


Then i ve been to 2 differents shops and tried DVI-d duallink "2 models of 3meters" and "2 models of 1.80meters".

With the 1.80 meters, the monitor reacting on blue led with backlight On, But no display, G.C detected the monitor.

With the 3 meters, no reaction from the monitor, orange led, G.C detected the monitor.


I'm so disapointed because the monitor is so god, no bleedlight, no pixeldefects, but i can't used it.
Ofcourse i've maked the test with different combination "monitor off > pc on" " monitor on > pc on", etc...



Can i have yours opinions about this issue?


Regards,
Nara

The monitor feels very solid, the stand on the other hand isn't the best. It is wobbly but I doesn't feel as if the monitor will fall over or break over it. I am planning to buy a stand in the future, but for right now it is fine.

BCC accepted my offer for 310. I guess at this price for a pixel perfect, it's worth the risk.

Wow, awesome. Yeah it goes without saying, but high risk = high reward.

Those don't actually have a 2B pcb. The 2B is single input only.

The models on ebay may overclock but are the mulit-input versions that from what I hear have input lag. I'm not sure how much exactly.
