Not only that , on some cards there is a tiny DIP switch near the Xfire connectors that toggles one of the DVIs between single and dual .. there is on mine!

On other cards , this is a BIOS switch , on others there's no switch at all!



@audiebahn
It depends on your card , but I bet that's the problem!!

*WOOSH* This looks like a job for simple math man!!!
2560X1440 = 3,686,400 pixels
My work here is done
*WOOSH*

Also, anyone have a triple monitor setup that plays MMO's and can test the frame rates? Just want to get a judge of how hard 4320X2560 would hit my Graphics cards in WOW/GW2 so I know how much I have to drop on my new build Thanks!

Heh, I had no idea! I thought all of them were just BIOS switches.

Is the gallery you linked to your own/ are you a local photographer?

Yeah, that's my gallery, and I'm a local photographer. I was using two aging 1600x1200 monitors for Photoshop work (as well as everyday use), and it was time to replace them with something better.

hey guys just a quick question I'm running a GF-9500-GT-DUAL-DVI-HDTV-HDCP-DDR3-512MB I-9500GT- HFTCD graphics card would this be a problem?

Just wanted to add my positive experience. I ordered from redcap on Sunday night, (QH270 Lite, $285 shipped) and got the monitor on Tuesday morning. Really amazing picture, especially since I'm coming from a 24" BenQ TN panel. I am also a photographer (www.chipchockley.com), so color fidelity is important to me. I can't seem to get the colors just right with any of the ICC profiles posted here-- I plan on getting ahold of a Spyder to calibrate.

I have one tiny stuck pixel, which only shows up on a black background. There are so many pixels on this thing, you pretty much have to put your face up on it to see it. Minimal bleed. The biggest flaw that I see is the yellowish tint on the bottom third of the screen. Not a deal killer-- it's only really bothersome on an all-white background. I wish it weren't there, but not enough to fool with sending it back. Wonder if it'll go away? I saw one post on here about that problem going away with a higher quality DVI cable? I find that hard to believe, but you never know...

I don't have any problem with the stand-- it's stable enough, looks fine. I don't plan on moving the thing around much anyway.

The resolution is really amazing, as is the color saturation. Blacks are SO much blacker than I'm used to, and colors are really eye-popping. This really is the deal of the year/decade.

There's a load of ICC profiles at TFTCentral , have you tried any of those?

http://www.tftcentral.co.uk/articles/icc_profiles.htm

Also try turning the brightness down (control on the back of the screen ..) , maybe that would help with the yellow tint? I've got mine turned right down as far as it will go!

Bought the pixel-perfect version from red-cap for $320, shipped in three days, and worked perfectly when I plugged it in.

First thing's first, I checked for dead pixels, and found a stuck one in the bottom left corner. It's impossible to see from regular using distance, so it must have slipped past their 'pixel detection system' (taking a picture of the screen from 20")


Also, I'm pretty sad that there's a good bit of backlight bleeding. Perhaps I should have gone with another seller, as red-cap suggested that this was normal for monitors.


I'll have to look into this fixing backlight bleed that people have figured out. As a last note, I love the monitor and it attracts dust faster than tape.

I did try the Achieva ICC profile at TFTCentral, and it was horribly blue for me.

I'll try turning my brightness down to see if that affects the yellow tint. I have it 8 clicks up as per other recs on this forum, and that still seems pretty danged bright.
