If you can get one of these IPS's running at 120hz, does that mean you can run 3D on it? If you get the other hardware, of course.
Edit: "I want my... extra 70K colors" That made me laugh, I remember playing games that had no colors, and 16 colors. Now here we are, complaining that 16 million isn't enough. I love progress.

Just imagine http://www.legitreviews.com/news/12844/

That monitor supports 278 trillion colors...

Is that all of them yet? lol.


I heard of that monitor, but I didn't notice the color claim. Just, damn. That is cool .

it works fine but there are some problems with sleep mode. after it goes in sleep mode sometimes it doesn't wake up properly and it shows garbage...
a simple restart of the adapter fixes it.

so a little update. the monoprice converter died after one week and they sent me a replacement.
I was worried that it was the monitor but it turned out to be fine. hopefully this one will live a little longer wink.gif

p.s. the monitor kicks ass. it has some backlight bleeding/internal reflections(I got the tempered glass version) issues but only really obsessed guys like me can notice these things. if you are just playing games/browsing/reading on it you will never notice.

I purchased an Nvidia 3d Vision 2 kit. 3d, sadly, will not work with this monitor. At least not with a gtx 680. I know for some other "actual/intended-to-be" 120hz monitors, you could use an older 285 or 286 version forceware and set it up as a CRT and kinda force the 3d to work. But since the gtx 680 can't run on old drivers...I couldn't even test that out. frown.gif So I returned the kit. That would have been the ultimate jesus-monitor effect.

Did you find out how to unlock the ramdac on nvidia cards in SLI? Technically it should be possible I would think

Sadly, no. I was hoping the new Nvidia drivers from a few days ago would have resolved the issue...but no go. I can get a single card's pixel clock up to about 537-538mhz. Any higher and the monitor goes red. Though that may have more to do with the horizontal refresh rate hitting 200 KHz at that range. But yeah...most I've done is a 133hz vertical refresh rate with only minor screen issues, and only on some screens.

People may say 100hz to 120hz (or a stable 125hz in my case) is nothing...but a 25% increase in what I see? Yeah...my eyes like it. frown.gif

You can't expect flawless panels to be A- graded and sold for $350 or so; there's going to be some minor imperfections with the panels whatever they are (foreign material in the polarizer, dead/blind pixels, backlight bleed, something...). Anybody buying these *should* be aware of this and able to deal with the minor imperfections.

As i'm on the wall between getting a dell or a catleap how "Bad" are the imperfections?

They aren't all bad. The one I'm looking at looks exactly like the apple cinema display. No backlight crap or dead pixels.
