I'm about to pull the trigger on one of these as well. I'm coming from an Apple Cinema HD 30" @ 2560x1600, that I just sold, and want to move from my Samsung P2770FH. The Samsung is great, but I want the 2560x1440. After really comparing to the brightness and colors on the Samsung, I've concluded the Apple to be POOR and/or FAIL for $2,000 retail. (I only paid $600).

I'm running a highly overclocked and tuned i7 setup with a GTX 580 3GB.

What I want to do is pick up 3 of these. The middle one would need to handle high end gaming. I run BF3 and Crysis 2 on DX11 and full Ultra. No compromises. I'm used to running that at 2560x1600 without issue. I want that again, but in a setup that gives me three matching monitors.

Only the middle monitor would be for gaming. I may play with some of the new surround technologies later down the road, but not now.

What would be the best way to run three of these at full resolution? Even if I need to move up to a GTX 680. The 2 side panels would be more for browsing, video, imaging, etc. Only the middle one would be pushing it.

Can your mobo support 2 video cards? because I would get another GTX 580 and plug it into the 4x/8x PCIe port and then get a new GTX 580 and run it in the the main slot and then just plug the middle one into that card and the other two into the old GTX 580 btw I am running a similar setup 3 of these will be amazing.

I have a laptop that has a HDMI port that supports up to 2560x1600 but how would I plug it in I will have a multi monitor but I don't think the hdmi on there will be 1440p??
This is for anyone that says HDMI can't carry anything over 1080p
"High-speed HDMI cables, or Category 2 HDMI, deliver data at a speed of 340 MHz. This type of HDMI cable is capable of handling the highest amount of bandwidth available. It offers the equivalent of a 1080p signal. This type of HDMI cable is ideal for displays with very high resolutions, specifically WQXGA monitors with resolutions of 2560x1600."

I'm running an EVGA X58 Classified E579 Limited Ed with 3-way SLI. I have 3 SLix16 lanes for video. 2x 580 3GB would be just fine. I would just need the fully leaded SLI to render to the 1 main monitor when cranking out the games.

Accidentally got some liquid on the screen (stupid noodles).

How do you guys clean your monitor? Not just water obviously because that would leave streaks. Windex is too harsh? What about like the target brand vinegar cleaner? That's supposed to be more gentle?

I had a delay due to my part. The monitor was shipped Wednesday and i received it today. Now that's what i call supurb shipping. Anyways got it hooked up and its 100% perfect no dead pixels or anything. Not sure why they use this stand with this monitor. Damn thing is huge though coming from an 24". Might have to enlarge my fonts or drop down to 1080 i already wear glasses lol. Ill post pics later maybe after school but overall im 100% satisfied and was worth it.

Too bad there's a discrepancy between what is hypothetically possible and what is technically implemented by manufacturers.

1) Anyone know if the 190V-220V power brick will cause problems if used in the US graded outlets? It's working fine but want to avoid issues later.

2) My second monitor has a noticeable blue hue/tint. A quick google search reveals this is an issue on not only the Catleaps, but the other Korean rebranded monitors. Have yet to come across a solution to get monitors to match hues? Seems like its an intrinsic issue to the monitor but it seems it can be corrected or adjusted with video card settings.. On an all black background, the second monitor has noticeable "washed out" appearance, the black is not as black per say.

thanks

I use plain water, and don't have streaks. I use an old piece of t-shirt, wet with hot hot water, and wrung out well. Then wipe the screen. Then I use a microfiber cloth to wipe off the excess water, and shine her up.

Works like a charm for me since day one.
