Yep isn't too bad, and for $400 I think i can stomach it (as long as it doesn't start spreading)

Ehh, nvm

I put the link in the first post. Info gets lost in this thread fast.

haha I was looking into this:

http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/best-software-solutions-to-fix-a-stuck-pixel-on-your-lcd-monitor/

but, no, it;s not very noticable at all... i'll post pictures... you gotta look for it. Most sites have a bar across the top, and so you can't see the dead pixel.

But thanks

Well I'm ordering a qh270-ipsb either tomorrow or thursday.

Soooo pumped for it.

I love glossy displays and I am really excited to move up in res.

Although, this basically makes upgrading/sidegrading to a 7970 a neccessity lol.

Now you can see the direct prices of the retailer, and costs they have to recuperate
Also, it is $700 to ship 20 monitors to the US, in one bulk shipment, probably more if separated.
Just a look from the business side of this
Remember after shipping and ebay fees, these sellers make maybe $20-30/monitor

Interesting to see that the the 30" is over twice as expensive as the 27"

I have no need for another monitor... yet I'm itching to buy one. I need better self control.

Well, it seems the intel 3000 graphics doesn't support dual link DVI. I borrowed an ATI 4850 card and the display works just fine. No dead pixels!
What I can't do is adjust the hue and saturation with the Catalyst driver though. Is there a video card on the market that will let me make those adjustments in DVI mode?
Thanks

Haha i think you'll be fine with 570 in SLI (although VRAM will be an issue)... I'm just running 1 570 lol tongue.gif although, just got a summer job offer today... >biggrin.gif see if i can eek out enough change for another 570.

@OP sadly i fall under the "dead pixel" group, but... makes it sound real bad... maybe it's the color of my pixel, but it's dark and so as I'm writing this post... I can't see it at all... not unless I'm 6" from the screen and really looking for it

Meh, my 6850s aren't happy with the extra work, but even with 4x the pixels, they're working fine. Lay off the AA a little bit (which isn't as necessary with a pixel pitch like this), and your 570s will be plenty for this monitor.

Intel graphics fail.

What AMD Catalyst drivers are you using? Try these, and see if you get the option.

To be fair, dual link DVI is becoming an antiquated technology in favor of displayport and other newer technologies.

Intel HD 3000 on my laptop with displayport can power a 1440p/1600p monitor just fine.

Well... it very well could be... although it's not completely black. On a black background it's lighter than the surround pixels, but not my much
