Kinda a noob at this and trying to get information, i just know ips is something i need from reading, maybe catsleap makes a nice 1920x1080 ips monitor.

I wish someone would post so I don't have to keep making my last post so big but I have some serious advice about HDTVs as monitors that comes from experience.
If you want to use the HDTV as a secondary monitor to watch movies on then great, it will work well, just make sure to get a good TV. I find using the PC link, i.e. VGA works better on average than HDMI, depending on the TV.
If you are planning to use something like a 32" HDTV as your primary monitor and do actual 2d stuff, web surfing, document writing, spreadsheets, file management, etc., then you are much better off getting a monitor. Most HDTV's have a larger pixel pitch and it can lead to eyestrain and loss of clarity when sitting too close.

Well i cant afford monitor and tv, hmmm im thinking hd tv is out, hmmm i may have to get the catsleap, although i dont know if i would use the 2500x1440 ever, i do play some games now and then, it just like a great monitor for the price. Im just thinking im not going to beat the ips quality and size of this monitor anywhere. Since you have exp in using hd Tvs for monitors and that sort of stuff, would you say t hat this catsleap is a good choice for my kinda use ? i need to get something fast, and thanks for everybodys help.

Comparing 27" monitors: at 1080p content is being physically "stretched", and the DPI is lower with the larger pixels, and there's nothing you can do about that. With a 1440p monitor at 27" you can use software and hardware decoders upscale videos to make better use of the higher DPI. Both are not optimal in normal monitor usage scenarios for watching video. If you already own a TV like I do, you can use the 1440p monitor for gaming and work, and then output to the TV for watching videos and watch from a couch. Using a TV as a primary screen is abysmal.

Hey so I finally got my pc set up and was wondering if there was a video tutorial on calibrating this monitor. I read the first post but still very confused. I am also noticing that dvds show better on my Mac. Video on this looks very grainy and low quality. Could this be a video card issue? I have the GTX560 Ti 448. I also started Old Republic and noticed that the cinematics were a little choppy, but in-game the graphics are awesome.

1) Go to http://www.lagom.nl/lcd-test/ and follow the instructions. About as good as you're gonna get without a hardware calibrator.

2) You're noticing that DVDs show better on whatever Mac you have because the resolution of a DVD is low. Similarly, the resolution of your Mac is probably low. When you look at low quality video on a high quality panel, it will look "very grainy and low quality". Is this your first time looking at a high resolution screen? Because even on a 1080p panel it becomes obvious how ugly 480p DVDs look when stretched out. Since you're now looking at 1440p, the quality difference is even more exaggerated. I was kinda hoping this stuff didn't have to be explained here, on a tech forum where you have all of these facts sitting right in front of you, but here we are.

Imagine you just bought a 4K TV and just turned it on. Now imagine you put your old DVD in it. Yeah, it's gonna look like crap, and yeah, it's time for you to upgrade to Bluray or high definition streaming video already...

3) I don't have SWTOR and so I don't know what the cinematic scenes are like, but it could be that the upconversion during CGI cutscenes is upscaled and not playing correctly. If your regular gameplay is fine, though, then I have no idea outside of MAYBE your video codecs causing choppiness due to GPU decoding acceleration not playing smoothly.

I used a Mac for the past 5 years of my life. This is my first gaming rig so I apologize for the newb questions on a tech forum. I'll look for another so people don't have to explain stupid questions/inquiries. And yes this is my first high resolution screen.

I purchased a pair of these monitors last month and have been having a slightly annoying, reproduce-able issue with them. Let's say they are monitor A and B. When both monitors are off/asleep, and I turn on both monitors before moving my mouse to unsleep them, monitor A's screen will be garbled and I'll have to turn it on/off to fix the problem.

I took a picture of what the garbled screen looks like:
http://i.imgur.com/l3n6a.jpg

I tried swapping the monitor cables with each other, but the problem continued to occur on monitor A, which leads me to exclude the included dual dvi cables as the problem. I've found a fix that works sporadically: if I move my mouse to "unsleep" my monitors, before turning them on from an off state, the chances of a garbled monitor A screen are greatly reduced.

System specs:
i7-2600K w/ 16GB ram
Windows 7 64-bit
Asus P8P67 Motherboard
EVGA GTX 570 Superclocked

I couldn't find a relevant FAQ/link in the OP and was wondering if anyone has experienced this problem? Many thanks in advance!
