I have a welltronics 110-240v as well from redcap and I guess it may be just lukewarm as well I mean it doesn't get like burning, but it's because I didn't know bricks can become hot =[

Thanks though.

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.

I live in LA but mine went to Memphis, TN first rolleyes.gif and took 3 days

After doing a ton of research I bought one of these Achievas from redcap. Will report back in a few days!

So it looks like most people are getting them from red-cap and green-sum, anyone know how if dream-seller is any good? And when they say monitors check & test before shipment, does that just mean he makes sure it powers up? Do they look for dead pix?

would my card handle 2560x1440 smoothly with high graphic games like crysis 2 ?
if yes then i'll join this club immediately biggrin.gif

That's my setup exactly. Just finished the build last week. Works beautifully. I play BF3 with all settings ultra/max. Can't remember what my average fps is but I know it somewhere between 60 and 90. Looks great too. Backlight bleed a bit of a dissapointment, but I don't find myself staring at a black screen all that often. The rest of the time is just amazing to look at. Definitely a worthy comprimise if you ask me.

Does anyone know of any ICC profiles they can recommend? It all looks very blue right now.

I tried the one from TFTcentral, but that one's rather too red. I'll take red over blue but I'm gonna keep looking.

Please don't believe when he says they check the monitor ; I received a dud one from him and the experience after that was horrible. There even was a note apologizing that my monitor was delayed a few days as they were testing it even though it was shipped the same day I ordered so they just recycle returned monitor. Its all good until you get unlucky. There are better sellers out there .

More about my experience in post below.

Yeah, I had heard things about dream-seller. Right now I'm sticking with ta_planet. Let's hope he doesn't disappoint.

After considering other Korean monitors, I really think this has me sold with the less amount of problems. I also love the look of it with the tempered glass, reminds me a bit of the iphone 4.

How to people rate ta_planet? They have a Perfect Pixel going for £235, whereas AW has one for £271?

My experience was to try several profiles and then do a test http://www.lagom.nl/lcd-test/.

In ALL cases the color balance became warmer, BUT I lost a lot of contrast. The Contrast page had me losing the last few bars on both ends of all colors. Also, in Black Level and White Saturation, I also could not see 1,2,3,4,5 & 251, 252, 253, 254. I CAN see these with the stock settings.

Decided I preferred the better contrast of the stock settings and the Slightly bluer balance has become familiar and comfortable. I don't do photo work. For me, net access, normal business programs & games.
