I bet you wouldn't be so proud of you screen if you got bad one and had to pay $100's to ship it back and wait weeks for it and even bother with the sellers trying to explain you that "you are holding it wrong, go away"
Let's see...why would I spend half the price for essentially the same monitor? Gee, I dunno, because it's a great deal? No sickening AG coating and It's also one of the only monitors in the world(overlord tempest OC too) that can overclock to 120hz@1440p? Good luck doing that on your Dell, And actually, those 900+ pages are basically saying how awesome the Catleaps are, I've read almost the entire thread

Honestly, I went with this monitor because Dell uses crappy AG coating which makes their screens look horrible.

I'll summarize the 900 pages for you. It's people asking the same dumb questions, posting stuff about other monitors that have nothing to do with this club but everyone comes here and pollutes this thread with crap because it's the most popular one.

If you want to hate on this monitor, take it somewhere else, because nothing you've said so far is true minus the fact that you said they are cheaper.

No one is arguing that Dell's support and warranty isn't better. Frankly, for anyone to disagree would be stupid. Dell's warranty is waaaaaaay better. Dell's support is waaaaaaay better. Dell's U2712hm monitor, in general, actually is a better monitor. If you're trying to convince us that you have a better monitor by going Dell, I doubt people would argue much if at all. Congratulations on your superior monitor. (for the most part anyways, my particular Catleap is still better tongue.gif)

As to why not pay the extra for a better monitor? Same reason why people don't all go for GTX 680/HD 7970 GHz and I7 3770k systems. Because the marignal benefit isn't worth the extra money that we'd have to spend. Are these screens as good? Of course not! But Dell's monitors aren't $300-500 better. That is to say, the marginal utility of the extra $300 isn't worth it to a lot of people. I'm certainly not going to spend more money than I have to. Especially since I actually got a better monitor than Dell could give me, and for half the list price.

Notice how everyone skips the part where I am right and just picks the "wrong ones" by their opinions or because they don't even get what am I saying thinking how beast trade by getting 1440p for $200 cheaper they made. Fine, keep your opinions, won't argue with stupid, worse then pre school.

It's a matter of getting a good deal, and half the fun is taking a risk. Just because you got a bad one (or whatever your issue is) it doesn't mean all are bad. smile.gif

Wait, what? Which is the part that you're referring to where you're right? I have no idea what you're even trying to say now.

And i bet you would be angry if you spent a thousand dollars on one from dell that has An anti glare coating the thickness of a brick on it, Break and have to send that back.


No thanks, My Korean IPS display is every bit as good as the LG one, And i'll put it here, MY RIG Trumps yours, and i use 2 korean IPS displays

Oh wait, Is buying into a name meant to make me better? I forgot, Guess i need to use Brand name bedsheets, And a brand name car, And a brand name this and that, To be awesome like you.

oh and one last thing, Expensive =/= Quality, I've had 2 Sabertooth boards die out on me and they are the upper end of the 1155 cost, Well they were, ASwell as a dozen other top end boards, AS with everything cost does not dictate whether it'll die in 3 days or 3 years.

Tl;DR, Dells displays aren't worth the price premium imo, I'm an australian, It cost me 630 bucks FOR TWO 1440p's that use THE EXACT SAME PANEL, Where as i'd still not get a single 1440p from dell.

Now back ontopic, Has anyone used an active Mini dp to Dual link DVI adapter with one successfully?

It looks like the mini DP to DVI worked for that fellow on that model of screen. I'm curious if someone has done similar with the 2703.
