30-inch monitor stuck/dead pixel "nightmare" (ZR30w) - Page 11

post #101 of 117
if it were me i would just cancel the order and try get my money back. i'd do that cause you paid a little too much for the monitor AS A NEW MONITOR but when you run it's numbers it's probably only gonna be a refurbished product with a 30-60 day warranty. so you'd really be paying full price for a refurb. i say cancel the order and hunt for a good deal yourself. it took me 3 weeks to get one for 735. that was bought from newegg and still has a 3 year warranty. at 1100 the 3 27" for $400 from korea dont sound bad either (3 monitors trump a single monitor. i hardly ever use my zr30w since using 3 24" monitors in portrait). im sure he can cut you a deal for getting 3.
but with your luck one or all of them would have issues. laughingsmiley.gif



it's your call.

When it comes to gaming on IPS the color difference between low, mid, and high is not noticeable. But, added LED back-lighting has resulting in the 2312/2412 outperforming the Dell 2410/HP zr30w in gaming/media, offering less blooding and darker more vivid colors. My current 2 Dell 2312s have no blooding at all. I still cannot believe how good the back-lighting is compared to my 2410 which had way to much blooding and bad dark vivid color reproductions (I like my color sharp and more dark and vivid, especially in gaming).
You would be surprise how many people over spend when it comes to IPS displays and never fully utilize them...

so what is the point of your post? Should I just sell my zr30w move down in resolution to get a 24 inch. Have you used a zr30w? Blooding? you mean back light bleeding right? Besides this OCN the words "overkill" need not apply wink.gif

Any ways I am happy you got yours figured out

Same as Dell! I have used it and own 3 to date and all 3 had back-light blooding. If you do not know the point of my post then do not response. Do not get mad at me because you over paid for a monitor you may never fully utilize. Ha! Ha! Your resolution means nothing at 30". Why not try 2100P+ at 27"

Also, you know I mean back-lighting blooding.

My point was: the whole thread is about the problems he is having! not for you to come in here and say, oh sorry you're having problems but I'm better and you over paid.

again what was the point? just to rub our noses? rolleyes.gif

and no they are not the same as dell. no OSD or scaler in the HP


blooding
tr.v. blood·ed, blood·ing, bloods
1. To give (a hunting dog) its first taste of blood.
2.
a. To subject (troops) to experience under fire: "The measure of an army is not known until it has been blooded" (Tom Clancy).
b. To initiate by subjecting to an unpleasant or difficult experience.


I'm sure you mean bleeding

Yes, bleeding. Firefox spell check likes the word blooding for some reason. Thanks for pointing it out! Wow! Cannot believe I did not notice that. 70+ words a minute...

CNET is not a credible site for reviews. They do reviews for the sake of making money, atleast 90% of the time. That HP monitor does have a-lot back light bleeding! I have purchase 3 and sold all 3 on Craig's List for a little profit...


Also, why not read my first post where I wrote it is hit or miss! Which it is hit or miss with IPS monitors, especially the Dell and HPs mid-range monitors. Only a fool will deny that truth.


My first post:

"You're lucky. I had 2 Dell 2410s and they were hit or miss. It seems like the mid-high-end IPS monitors are hit or miss, but when you get a good one, it's like wow! The low-end Dell 2312s I got are flawless and I like them a-lot better than the high-end Dell 2410s they replaced. The Dell 2410s were only good for print design, just like the ZR30w is."


Please fallow all post from that point and you will see why we are at this point. Did some say "Hogwasher"?

ok? and read my post. just asked what you meant by print design.

you then went on a little rub your nose in it, Ha Ha you paid too much! Rant.

We are all sooooo proud of you. When I bought my monitor year ago it was either U3011 or ZR30W.

I am happy with my monitor. You seemed to get irritated when I said I game on mine. You did say "they are only good for print design" I disagreed that's all.

Happy blooding thumb.gif

edit: aren't all reviewers in it for the money? weird

and I'm not going to deny your "truth" because I have no Idea. I bought one open box HP and it's flawless

Oh man, when UPS came to the door with the monitor (huge box, I was shocked) it has ME3 on top of it!!!

I Knew trying out a game on this thing would be the moment of truth, but thankfully it handles motion is a very precise and acceptable manner. There is some jutter, like when you move a window around really fast, it won't look silky smooth, but it's fast enough not to be a distraction. Mass Effect 3 looks astounding at this resolution, the amount of detail in the character close-ups is stunning. Still runs at 60fps too! I wanted to try the Crysis Benchmark at this resolution, but 2560X1440 isn't on there lol.

This panel obviously is not designed for gaming or remotely marketed for it, but it does the job with flying colors.
