http://www.ebay.ca/itm/New-YAMAKASI-CATLEAP-Q270-MULTI-27-LED-2560X1440-S-IPS-Monitor-Perfect-Pixel-/120878749173?pt=Computer_Monitors&hash=item1c24ef55f5
Now let's see. $489 --> $729. $240 Price different. Advantages:
1) Don't have to deal with risk of buying from overseas
2) Doesn't cost you $100 and weeks to ship it back to exchange it should there be a problem with it
3) Actual Grade A+ Monitor with literally 0 messed up pixels and on the spot replacement in such a case
4) A proper stand that supports the monitor + Cable Management
5) Proper VESA support without fiddling around
6) 4 Port USB 2.0 Hub (cable included)
7) Proper American power plug standard
8) Includes displayport cable
9) Having bought from a reputable brand, with 3 years actual local Warranty through HP.
10) $729 is the MSRP. You can buy it even cheaper...newegg.com has it for $679. (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824176242&Tpk=ZR2740w) Making the price difference between the monitors just $190.
If you expect a big name company like HP to make this product available, with all the things I mentioned above, with less than a $190 price markup compared to what we're paying...then you're absolutely bonkers. This was a phenomenal deal when it was 100hz monitors. And scribby's hoping to source the parts to make it 100hz again. But as of right now, for a $190 price difference and what you get by buying from Dell....honestly, you're an imbecile for expecting the price to be any lower at this early stage in the introduction of these panels into the market.

Wow is all I have to say. Maybe you cant read what Im saying correctly, but Im a high standing member of many forums under the "Cecil" (name was taken here by someone that isnt even active) and just about every person on every one of the forums would say the oposite. This forum in general is just very off tempo considered to others I guess.
Anyway, I also guess you missed where each time I say IMO
IMO no montior is worth over $500, period. And IMO I can make that limit wherever I want it, because it is my opinion. Im sure there are many others who agree, other wise they wouldnt be so excited about a sub $400 high res monitor like I am. If it did not exsist we simply would not own a 27in high res monitor becuase in our opinion, one is not worth 150% more of the price, or even 100% more.

You also apeared to clearly miss where I compared the price of a 24in Dell U2412M to that monitor, and not one of these. The Dell can be had for around $280 at times, so if the HP is $680, that is still about 142% more money then the Dell.

So next time you want to call someone a jerk, why dont you actually read what they have said? thumb.gif

Who uses AA. That's the stupidest thing ever. You don't need AA when you play 2560x1440 because it has a wopping 13 higher pixels per inch higher than a 23" 1080p monitor," "Oh, a 27" 2560x1440 display is too expensive. why buy it when you can buy a smaller lower resolution display for less?" It's always asinine comments that don't contribute anything positive and fail to miss the big picture. If there were an option to block an individual users comments on this forum I would gladly add you to it because you you honestly just always say the stupidest things I could ever imagine and you say it with such conviction that it feels like I'd have better luck convincing a suicide bomber to not blow himself up for God than to explain to you why you are so wrong in so many ways.
Forget it. You're a loser. I'm just going to ignore you from here on out.

Expressing ones opinions is not against any rules, but pure bashing and name calling like you are doing is, so you have been reported. Also, taking things way out of context and clearly not being able to understand things, and using that as an argument to call someone an idiot or "loser" is just hypocritical. If you want to try and convince people to spend WAY more then needed then you are more then welcome to. But bashing someone elses opinion who tries to help people save money (considering the state of the economy, and that most people want bang for buck) is being a "jerk".


And BTW, there is a "block user" option, but it involves reading wink.gif

It's still too early to call things but nothing'll change unless these monitors suddenly start appearing in big box electronic stores.

You're absolutely right that these are a drop in the bucket compared to the monitor market as a whole, but if you compare it to the number of 27" or greater panels with 2560x1440 or higher resolution I suspect the numbers start to not look so bad - especially considering these units have really only been selling for what, a month or so? It's a niche at the moment (as all >1920 monitors are) - but a smart company would look at it in context and see that perhaps there's some market potential to be filled wink.gif

To get back on topic, will this monitor run on a 9600 GT?
post #976 of 11297
If it has a dual link DVI port... Yes. It will run.

Excellent post.

And if the HP had Samsung's AG coating or had no AG like these Korean monitors, I likely would have bought it. But with the horrible heavy AG - no sale, and Korea gets my dollars.

Wow guys, c'mon. Let's agree to disagree, and let it be.

Hmm, I'm sort of a poet...

I imagine it'd run windows on a 9600gt no worries, whether it'd run any games at native res - not so sure..

As a rough ballpark, I think the 9600GT's 512MB memory will probably limit you to something around 2007 era games at this kind of resolution...
