Once I have money I might buy a nicer monitor to go with a nice video card.mad.gif

You can get a cheap graphics card for like £20 that has dual link dvi and is completely silent (no fans). Totally worth it imho.

What does "Awaiting collection by recipient as requested" on the DHL tracking page mean? Is it being forwarded to me through Canada Post?
Its at a facility in Ottawa and.. I'm in freaking Nunavut. I cannot simply go and pick it up.

Unless you requested (or the shipper) a 'hold for pickup' this is probably a mistake, call DHL with the tracking number. The international team I have been dealing with has been really great, very responsive.

If only I could get green-sum to respond, second day with no reply!

So if you are watching a movie or playing a game in 1080p, would you use the Nvidia control panel to upscale the image to fit the whole screen?
Or would you use VLC player or the game settings to fill the whole screen?

It does it automatically.

I've read several times that you do not want to use a non-native resolution or it looks bad.
But then again I don't own one of these screens, yet.

What you are asking is like playing a 720p film on a 1080p screen ...there is nothing special you have to do, just play it and make it full screen and it is the same with games.

 

Windows will set the resolution to 2560x1440, games you have to set your self ( well I had to with BF3).

 

When I first started BF3 after connecting the monitor for the first time it was running at 1920 x 1080, looked ok, then set BF3 to 2560 x 1440 and looked very sharp. I believe there is only certain resolutions the monitor can do with out the hardware scaler.

Have you ever watched DVD or even TV quality video, in full screen, on your 1920x1080 display? You, apparently, unknowingly scaled your video. If you ever full screened a standard quality (240/360) youtube video on a modern display (pfft even an antiquated one from 1995), you're upscaling.

What everyone means about not using the native resolution of the display is in Windows and games itself. Of course a movie would look better with a native resolution of 2560x1440 on these displays, but unfortunately there are none. All you'll get is the same effect as youtube videos, but with 1080p video.

Add me to the club guys! I am a total believer. My Catleap just arrived from BigClothCraft and it is beautiful. Absolutely no dead pixels and no noticeable bleeding. I love it!

Hey Guys,

I would have to say a huge thank you to Scribbly for getting this thread together and providing so much quality info.
There was only ~200 pages when I first started my research into this.

I have a 2C model for a couple of months now I have to say what a great monitor for the price!

But.....I now have the monitor deciding to turn its brightness down to lowest all by itself. The light flashes as if the button is being pressed so I dare say I will have to pull it apart for furthur inspection.

Just curious if anyone else has had this happen as of yet?

oh, and I got mine from Greensum and it only took 3 days to hit Australia and my doorstep. Very Impressed.
