The retina is just them taking advantage of stupid people. A 2560x1440 display is not retina at all or anywhere close to it.

Anyone running an MSI 660ti twin frozr or similar card with one?
Im assuming ill have to drop down from ultra settings to run the likes of BF3 etc @ 2560X1440?
Just wondering if anyone has a similar card and what settings they can run with BF3 for example,

It should be playable around 60fps. The best thing to do with 2560x1440 is turn the AA to 2x or off and use fxaa. Looks really clean.

What "retina"?

Surely you're not talking about Apple's retina displays.

These sellers are just taking advantage of people who don't know what retina display means. These monitors don't have a high enough PPI to be considered a retina display.

You sure, retina has no real ppi measurements...It's whatever Apple sees fit, surprised they haven't called their iPad mini "retina"yet

Can someone hook up their ps3 and tell me if they can watch blurays?

A screen is retina when you can view at it and cant count or see the pixels.
The distance between eyes and screen varies over screen size but im sure you huys dont need a explanation a 27inch screen isnt viewed from 15cm distance like a iphone.

otherwise i dont know what else to tell you. Email the seller and see what he says. Good luck and keep us posted.
edit: reinstall your video drivers maybe? or uninstall them then when it asks to reboot, turn off the pc, connect the monitor, make sure its plugged in properly and turn the pc back on, hopefully it works. Also do you have another DDVI cable you can use? how bout another pc to plug the monitor into?
edit2: make sure you see a red light when u press the power button on the yamakasi....you should leave it pressed for a second, its not just press and let go...sometimes u have to make sure u press it in good, itll go red(im not sure) then green if theres no input....once you turn the pc on, it goes red, then green then shows the image....

I tried it with my gtx460 too, it doesnt work. I used the dual link dvi cable from my acer gd245hq, it still doesnt work. I reinstalled the drivers, uninstall them and tried the monitor, it still doesnt work frown.gif I also tried monitor on another pc which has a hd5870, it didnt work on that either. I tried holding the power button until it turned red, then green and then it went blinking again. So basically i already tried all of your advice before i even made the first post. Still, i am grateful for your help. I talked with the seller (green-sum), he said he is going to give me a replacement,i am now waiting for him to arrange the shipping.

I will probably pay taxes again for this monitor when it comes back... And my father needs another one of these monitors, this time i am thinking of getting the crossover one with the pivot stand, and also hoping that they does not have this fricking issue too, can anyone confirm that? Also does accessorieswhole or any other dealer actually open up the box, connect it to a pc and try if it works? That would really help me out since customs in the country i live in is a mess. By the way, i have nothing against green-sum, he has been very helpful, i just need the next one i order actually works before it arrives here, i dont want to go through this again.

Highly debatable. There are some people who can see pixels better than others because they have different visual performance.

Apple's "retina" is just another marketing gimmick.

I saw this link on youtube where a yamakasi user connected his ps3 to his monitor

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZvF2_op6D80

But he doesn't have any instructions... it just says HDMI, though my model doesn't have an HDMI output. Could it be that he is using a model with HDMI output? I read somehwere here on the forums that it cannot be done but now I can see that there is some hope as I would like to use this monitor with my ps3 and xbox 360 as well.

Yes you need a model with HDMI output and also a scaler (1:1) although this would significantly increase input lag as with all monitors with scalers.
