Alright, thanks for the help!

Hello everyone,

I've been through this thread and you guys are selling me dreams here biggrin.gif Think I'm gonna join you soon.

I've just a single question: I'm planning to still run some of my games in 1080p on this screen. Since it does not have any scaler, will the 1080p image display correctly (scaled somehow by my GPU), or will it occupy only a portion of the screen, or worse, won't display at all?

Just received my QH270 Lite and it is flawless. Zero dead pixels and not much much back light bleed. Only problem is I am getting a slightly glowing pinkish hue on faces when I am watching a movie and a blue tint when its a scene at night. I have played around with a bunch of color profiles but cant seem to correct this issue. Anyone else experienced this?

You can have your gpu software scale it for you, I have done it before in catalyst with my amd card but it does not look as good as it does on a screen with a native reolution of 1080P.

Most likely a problem with the movie itself. Unless this wasn't an issue with an older monitor.

Probably need to calibrate the monitor.

The blue tint to the movie at night sounds like it could be either the IPS panel itself having mediocre blacks. That is to say, having the same issue that all IPS panels share. Nothing to be done about that. unfortunately (except turn the backlight down). The pink, as Koehler says, is probably an issue with calibration. The standard calibration on these screens is poor.

could also try adjusting color temperature in video card settings...

Hey guys!

My birthday is in 2-3 months and i'm thinking on selling my U2412M and getting one of those screens.
Since i only came across this thread a day ago and you ppls owning the monitors for almost a year now

How reliable are they ?
I do not have the extra cash to buy another monitor if this one die after a month or two (That's why i need to sell my Dell to buy this one)

Thanks !

I wouldn't get this as a birthday present for yourself, especially if you have to sell your U2412m to get it. They're nice monitors to be sure, but the incremental upgrade over a U2412m (a reliable, quality monitor backed by a 3 year premium warranty) isn't worth it as a birthday present for yourself.

Lol, if he wants a better monitor sure it's a good "birthday present" for yourself.
