Hey all! After lurking for a long while and contemplating all the choices, I just pulled the trigger.

I settled on the QH270-Lite from red-cap which is currently selling for $285.99

I'll keep everyone updated and take lots of sexy pictures. thumb.gif


Edit/Update: 1.5 hours after payment, I revived shipping confirmation. It's being shipped DHL to San Francisco. I can't believe the ship times some of the people in this thread have reported. It makes me crazy how this thing can ship across the pacific in less than 30 hours, when it takes an AUX cable over a week to get to my door from Kansas...

Just picked up two from dream-seller , both came in near perfect condition.

I have been attempting to get Dual monitors to work, I have a Flex HD 6950, I bought a cheap display port to DVI that did not work at all , I tried Single link dvi just to see if there was a signal but every connection did not give any signal. Just wondering if I buy the more expensive Active display port to Dual link DVI will that work or has anyone used a Dual link dvi to Hdmi cable on these monitors as I much rather do that than having to deal with the display port. Just looking for some experience so I know what route to go as my Vid card only came with one dual link dvi.

Why do you not just use the TWO Dual Link DVI ports on that card ?

This. And you can't run 2560x1440 over HDMI period. It does not have the physical ability to hold that signal, only up to 1080p. Your going to need to use display-port adapters if anything.

Thanks , I bought a cheap Displayport to Dual link and it didn't even show up under my display settings. What type or brand of Displayport to Dual link Dvi should I get ?

By cheap, I'm assuming that you didn't buy an active Displayport to DVI-D adapter. You can tell the difference as the Active adapters also have a usb plug for power. They can run anywhere from $60-$100 depending on brand and new/used. Active adapters are needed to push 1440p.

Hmm I was only able to find displa yport Active but not any Mini-display port active, gonna do some more research

is it because i have an eyefinity video card that Passive won't work ? I only have one dvi hooked up I was under the impression if you needed to use more than 2 You needed another Display port with Active

Thanks again to everyone for the help
