Can't wait. Hooking this up to a Gigabyte 670GTX windforce so should be able to push the pixels just fine.

Update:

Ordered Aug 21 at 4pm(so Korea was sleeping)
Shipped out Aug 22 at 3am from South Korea
Arrived in Anchorage, AK 2pm Aug 22
Arrived in Memphis, TN 12am Aug 23
Arrived in Vancouver, BC, Canada 7am Aug 23 on the way to Victoria

I called just now to arrange for pickup instead, should be here today they said. Duty for all you Canadians wondering is ~34 dollars which is basically HST on the item so I'm happy with that. Total paid was $320.

Thanks for update Jodo. No shipping fee?

Shipping was included in the 285US price. Duty as noted afterwards.

So I picked it up and brought it home. Other than some backlight bleed which was to be expected, there are no discernible issues. No dead pixels anywhere, no stuck pixels, no pressure spots.

I did have a little bit of ghosting when I first turned it on, but that quickly disappeared and hasn't show itself again. After 7 hours of use, brick is warm but not hot. I have no idea if the brick is different from the original being packaged but I don't think so. Used the power cord from my old monitor rather than the included "adapter" which I didn't want to trust.

Very happy with my purchase. I don't think I could imagine having two of these...they wouldn't fit on my desk lol.

Can someone please try this and let me know? Will any of the other Monitors mentioned in the thread turn back on? Thanks in advance!

The QNIX QX2700 2560x1440 27" should work for your application, particularly if you have DVI-D to DVI-D cabling.

I cannot be sure, as I had an adapter that may have been a factor in some troubles I experienced, described here:
http://tinkertry.com/close-look-qnix-qx2700-led-2560x1440-27-inch-monitor

but what I can say is that my power strip with all my accessories and monitors is turned off when I leave the room, and turned back on when I return, and the QNIX always turned right back on for me if my PC was still on, without having to hit the power switch. Resuming the laptop also automatically woke the screen, makes sense, given it has only one DVI-D input to "watch" for activity on.

I hope this helps, and thank you for reminding me that I should add automatic power up to my tests for my new Nixeus (arriving next week) as well:
http://tinkertry.com/close-look-nixeus-led-2560x1440-27-inch-monitor/
given it has more inputs, it's possible I'll have to hit some buttons every time I sit down to work if I have signal on more than just DisplayPort, which could be annoying, won't know until I try...

WOW! "accessorieswhole" on ebay is the real deal. I contacted him through ebay about the problems I was having with what I THOUGHT was the power brick. I got a response within 48 hours and today a new power brick arrived!!! That is some unbelievable customer service from over seas! I am going to order a new dual link cable today before I send my video card back to MSI.

"green-sum"
I bought 3 of these monitors.
1st The colours were perfect, perfect whites & blacks, never seen anything so nice, it was whiter & blacker than my Samsung Galaxy Note Super Amoled HD screen, the colours were very vivid, I was impressed, however there was two big pressure marks, covering several hundred pixels.
https://fbcdn-sphotos-c-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-snc7/413339_10150973133363412_156356026_o.jpg
2nd monitor, it's pretty good, it has only 1 dead pixel, which I can't notice, the colours are off, theres a green tint, there's no way to really get rid of it by adjusting the colours, it's never as good as what the first monitor colours are, basically after hours of calibrating you'll end up with a high res TN panel, no matter how you tweak it, there's going to be a tint remaining... Although you do get used to it sort off, if it was used as a single monitor with nothing to compare it with.
3rd monitor, It had serious green tinting, and 50% of the screen, left side: is darker than the other, with a couple of dark patches too at the bottom.
https://fbcdn-sphotos-h-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-snc7/323081_10151029063673412_1491858944_o.jpg
As you can see it's pretty bad.
I don't have the first monitor with the good colours to put up, it's in the box now, But I took one of the 2nd and 3rd side by side, (bare in mind, the 2nd ones colours are not that great, so the right side one is worse than it would appear in the comparison. I'm comparing bad with worse in the below)
https://fbcdn-sphotos-a-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-snc7/324981_10151029064413412_528384836_o.jpg
This is after both have been calibrated to the closest possibly match, if I had a picture of the first monitor side by side, you'd see even the second one (left side) is terrible for it's tinting too...
Anyway, the seller agreed to pick up and replace the first monitor which had the purple pressure marks.
When it actually came to telling me when the collection date is due, he then tried to make excuses, saying actually it's not a manufactures fault, but DHL "damaged" it, even though the box was not damaged, it didn't look at all like a DHL fault.
About a couple weeks later, or so I got a phone call from DHL, wanting to know if the monitor was faulty, they was vague and not specific...
"Is the monitor you bought from China faulty?"
I replied: "The monitor I bought from SOUTH KOREA is faulty"
And that was pretty much it other than the hello's and goodbyes.
After I asked the seller what's going on, but all I got is delays, excuses, ignoring, etc.
Finally after almost 7 weeks, I get a reply, offering me 30 USD part refund, (originally he offered 40) Also stating that I have to return the monitor, he's gone back on his word that he would collect it.
So he's not an honest seller. green-sum
I don't know if the other sellers are any good, but this one is one to avoid.
As for the 3rd monitor with the 50% dark side, and overall green tint, (It's actually worse than my camera will show in the photos)
He said, you can return it, but if you do you can't return the other, you can only send one back, also he said, it's unlikely the manufacturer will accept the return, so I guess he's implying I'll have to pay to have it returned, and then pay some more to get the faulty one sent back to me...
Oh what's great now, the 3rd monitor, now keeps doing this.
https://fbcdn-sphotos-e-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-prn1/614944_10151046904648412_125108789_o.jpg
It's like a coloured white noise...
Time for PayPal claims...
I have his eBay message for proof, one of the earlier replies.
Hello.
Sorry for the delay.
We are making many inquiries to the manufacturer about this issue.
If you want a reimburse from my authority we can offer you $40.
From not getting any confirm, this is my limit.
Please understand.
If it is hard to accept, we will proceed a pick up service.
And give you a replacement.
And if you are going to purchase a second monitor we will ship it together.
Also for the replacement, we will check for every defects and send it to you.
After you decide, we will proceed the next step.
We will be waiting for your reply.
Thank you.
I agreed to his "pick up service"
I actually purchased a 2nd and a 3rd monitor sometime after this, he kept making excuses for the return, about DHL investigating etc, and I thought the first monitor would just be a one off fault, seeing as so many people got good monitors, so I didn't want to wait any longer, went ahead and bought 2nd and 3rd monitor in good faith, that he'd honour his email for replacement for the 1st.
Not only did he not honour his replacement and "pick up service)
He send me more defective items, and won't honour the return for these either.
So be careful buying this monitor, expect a fault, and if you're buying from green-sum, expect to have a horrible customer services, where he doesn't honour his own words.
I can't speak for the other sellers, from reading the forums, some people have had no problems with returns, others had... So I guess it's a risk, from whoever you buy from.
Good value for money if you want high res for a low price, very bad value for money if you expect an IPS or even quality of a TN panel...

I'm sorry to hear that. I bought my two Catleaps from BCC. The shipping was quick and customer service was good. My 2nd one has 5 dead pixels, 4 are in the center part. BCC authorized a return shipping for this monitor. Quick and easy. They can be slow on the reply when there're a lot of orders, but other than that they're excellent. I'll update the situation once the monitor has reached Korea.

Hey guys I have a couple question regarding these 2560x1440 27" monitors. My question below 1-4 Thanks for your input trying to decide if I should change monitors etc..

1. Could I buy 3 x of these monitors and use just 1 x eVGA GTX690 to power them? (Portrait mode)
2. What is the highest refresh rates can they go up to? Above 60Hz? Playing BF3
3. Has anyone else tried side by side comparison from a 27" 1920x1080 120Hz is there a plus or minus between the two?
4. Last question is I currently am using a LG FLATRON W3000H 30" 60Hz (when I play BF3 it seems I need to put a whole clip into one guy before he dies vs other people shooting at me I die couple hits? I understand there are other more powerful guns when playing but could the 60Hz vs 120Hz play a roll in speed when shooting? I feel like I have a 1 second delay etc..

To your last point, a 120hz screen would make no difference. All it would do is make the screen smoother, provided you're getting enough FPS.

The people you're referring to are just better shots, more of the bullets are hitting.
