Well do keep in mind the time difference. They're 13 hours ahead. That being said: if he doesn't respond eventually, you can file a claim through paypal that your item was defective and the seller won't respond. That usually gets them rolling. Though they might suddenly not offer free return shipping if you go that route.

Ok so he replied and said he insists that I try it on another desktop. Problem is I dont have another desktop, all other computers in the house are laptops. Most of my friends barely know how to use facebook and email and the few that are computer savvy are too far away to go and test my monitor with. Any ideas?

What you really need is another video card to test, as that is the element that matters.

To help, what specific video card do you have? You've said it has DVI-I, but those can be either single link or dual link... and if it's single link, it isn't compatible with these monitors.

It is an EVGA GTX 560 Ti so it has 2 DVI-I (with the extra pins) dual link outputs. A couple days ago someone posted that they have the same card and confirmed it runs on it.

Video cards will always have the extra pins on them, so you can plug in dual link cables. You unfortunately can't tell if a video card port is dual or single link just by looking at it.

That being said, if someone with the same card is running 2560x1440 then they must be dual link tongue.gif.

Hey guys! Just a quick post from someone who's been scouring this thread for a while.

Firstly, I have a 2010 Macbook Pro (GT 330M) 15". On every eBay listing I've read, it says that the display is not compatible with Macbook(s), and Laptops. The GT 330M card is not mentioned anywhere.

My question is, if I were to buy a DVI-D
MiniDisplay Port Adapter, would my monitor work? I just want to be sure before placing an order to Korea, as the return shipping is extortionate!

Thanks, and if anyone has got this model working, please could you send me a link to the monitor you bought?

Thanks
Kartik

EDIT: Would this model work? Seems fairly priced and pretty good quality. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Perfect-Pixel-27-Inch-TVera-2560x1440-TS-27WQHDIPS-WQHD-S-IPS-Monitor-/251214611075?pt=Computer_Monitors&hash=item3a7d8ec283

You need a model that has DisplayPort. You don't want to be using an Active minidisplayport -> Dual link DVI adapter unless you have to (besides they're not cheap).

While technically they work, it seems to be a big headache for the people who use them. All sorts of weird problems.

I would also recommend spending more and getting something with display port; the adapter you need would cost ~$100 anyways, so give that to your monitor budget.

Hey guys, thank you for your replies, however, I just can't afford the displayport monitors, over £150 more expensive. I can get an active switching miniDisplay port - DVI dual adapter for around £30, and I can't spend £120 extra.

What sort of problems occur? Is there a make / model where the problems seem least prevalent? All the listings say that Macs aren't compatible - is this true, even with the adapter?

Are there any fixes for the problems? If it's a matter of running my computer on discrete graphics 24/7 - (that's the fix for the flickering issues), then, i'm happy to just live with that.

Thanks guys,
Please tell me if the model i suggested before would work (technically). Sorry if it seems like I'm ignoring your advice, I would love to be able to take it. In an ideal world, I'd own a Cinema Display, but I spent all my money on my laptop, and this is all that's left.

People have run these displays on the mac via display port adapters. Maybe search this thread any of the others for mac or macbook... I know another OCN member bought one and had problems, despite buying several adapters hoping they would fix it.
