I would take photos of the entire box before opening it, documenting everything. If there appears to be damage to the box, contact the seller prior to actually opening it and send them photos. Continue documenting the un-boxing, internal package, the display, and all accessories prior to use.

Cover your butt in the event there is a problem.

Alright to report....
So far so good thumb.gif............... EXCEPT....
There was no adapter for this thingie mad.gif !!!!! Where am I supposed to plug this into.... >.>

Luckily I was able to use my sound systems ac adapter but does anyone know what the connection to that thing is? I don't even know what to look up.

Although that was the only thing wrong with the monitor, it came with no dead pixels or dust biggrin.gif. I vouch for red-cap's monitor as of now seeing as nothing has gone wrong yet.

Only thing bugging is the tilt everyone is talking about but I can live with that.

Here's more pics.

Well I have to say mine arrived in record time...I posted when I ordered 1 day 20 hours ago and its hooked up and running perfectly.
Zero dead pixels, no back light bleed. Running two 27inch off my 560TI SC, one ASUS on the HDMI and the new LITE on DVI
Colors and game play all great...Ordered from TA_PLANET and couldn't be more pleased...Will report again later for updates.
I live near LA, CA, maybe that's why it arrived so soon. But Korea, Alaska, Oakland, S California, bang! Less than 2 days.

Got mine in today. Couldn't be happier! This thing is awesome.

There are several power bricks shipped with these monitors depending on which seller you use. You need to know the exact adapter and operating voltage used to compare if it gets hot or not. I have a Welltronics 110-240V from Ta-Planet and it stays lukewarm with full use in the tropics. Just asking if it gets hot or not will not deliver much useful info.

Mine from BCC I would say is warm to the touch. Not hot but has some warmth. Seems fine to me.

Basically, since you can't cram a high pixel count into lower resolutions, to enhance the visuals, make the pixels you can show look prettier.
I have seen a number of games ran at the 1440p+ and the video quality difference between medium and the highest wasn't that noticeable. Or at least not as extreme as a difference when viewed at a lower overall resolution.

This only applies to AA / AF. Going to pick a shimian up pretty soon, was just cautious of people having them for a month or so and a whole heap going bang, but they don't seem to be. thumb.gif
