More likely an issue of liability than strictly an issue of profit. What if the vendor takes real orders then disappears? Only place people have for recourse is OC.net... Potential for big legal issues.

Cant we use driver of some other monitor? Or maybe someone can modify 3D Vision somehow in order to delete monitor/driver check?
Also there is another shutter glasses systems except Nvidia's one. And iZ3D driver for it.

Can't be done. The only card that can hit 120hz is the GTX 680. GTX 680 is also the only Nvidia card that CAN'T run the old forceware 285(or 286?) that allows manual monitor setup through CRT + Refresh Rate settings. I know because I bought a kit to test this out. wink.gif Including trying IZ3D and Tridef.

Maybe we can get 3D at 1920x1080 resolution?

Then perhaps they shouldn't have extended an offer today in said thread to potentially get involved. Between that thread wondering off and the original Davi thread doing the same, I'm left wondering which 2560x1440 thread is next . . .

That's not even remotely the issue. -_- Lol.

It's incredible crazy fast delivery, I guess my screen was being carried by hands all the way long:-), however it's Russian EMS service. I bought mine from dream seller, the original box was just wrapped in 2 layers of air bubble film. It's 2C of course. Good news: no damage, no dead/stuck pixels, no backlight bleeding, no green tint, no taxes. Bad news: there are two tiny spots (2-3 pixel size) just under the central area of the screen. Does anybody have anything like that? My display is non tempered glass so the spots are apparently on the inner layers of the screen. I can distinguish them only on a white background. I have to get used to not seeing them. The second bad news that the screen has a noticeable uneven backlight on the minimal level of brightness. The left half of the the screen is more dimmer than the right one. Increasing the brightness on 2-3 steps eliminates the difference. AFAIK each Catleap has this flaw. In my case it is not as bad as on that pic posted here before http://cdn.overclock.net/6/6d/600x450px-LL-6d1bb4a7_Snapshot_20120404.jpeg
Nevertheless it's noticeable and I hate that. I know there is a way to get rid of it but my soldering skills are almost zero. I have to increase the brightness on the screen till to the level when the blacklight becomes even and then I just reduce the brightness via nvidia panel to avoid eyes strain caused by the excessive brightness.
Probably you have already known that this model doesn't have PWM controller onboard. No PWM, no eyes strain, but we have got another side effects: just set the brightness to the minimum and look at you screen attentively, besides uneven backlight you can also notice some slightly yellish areas. Partly it is because of we have no PWN.
In comparison to my old glossy NEC 20WGX2 S-IPS 6GTG CCFL:
1)the new one is totally huge
2)twice less reflections on glossy surface - nice!
3)launch my favorite game Arma 2 and play for a while...rather feel disappointment from the response time.
5 years old monitor faster than new one. Now I know what the ghosting is :-( However the new panel definitely increases
the immersion effect of the game overall.
Total: It's definitely worth for its money but it has some minor flaws.

Does your monitor have speakers like mine? My 2C monitor you showed in the picture obviously has the same backlight issues, but it does NOT depend on brightness level. The right side of the screen is always dimmer at every brightness level. It would be interesting to know what PCB you have, because my monitor is a strange blue PCB that I haven't seen in anyone else's monitor

Is it normal?

Yes that is normal, here is my monitor. Still waiting for the OC boards so someone can sell me a 60 Hz board with no backlight controller issues.450

Impossible to say cause the cameralight appears to be reflected in the monitor.
