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!

I do landscape, but same pixel count regardless. I tried to play Diablo III, but it won't let me set the resolution that high even in the "windowed fullscreen" workaround. It did before this last update... Stupid Blizzard

So I just tried an older game. Titan Quest. I know the effect/texture settings were maxed and I tink AA was @ 4x. SCREENIE HERE. 80-110 FPS

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.

I'm using one of the Hazro 27" profiles here , they are the same screen so give those a try!

Update: My Shimian (from red-cap) shipped quickly, although I was out of town at the time. I didn't buy the pixel-perfect version, but have yet to find any dead/stuck pixels. I haven't searched exhaustively, since if I did happen to find one, that's all I'd notice from now on. rolleyes.gif Backlight bleed seems very low, even when watching a dark movie.

I'm extremely impressed with this screen. I previously ran a 24" Acer LCD (TN, I'm assuming). I thought it was a nice screen until I put it side-by-side with the Shimian, and now it looks like crap! The sharpness and pixel density cannot be beat. Mine looked a bit blue out of the box, but I ran through the Windows color calibration tool and got it to an acceptable level. Now I need another one to replace the Acer so I can go dual.

The only minor issue I seem to be having is that my screen doesn't seem as bright as some others are reporting. I have it turned up to max using the buttons on the back and at first it still seemed a bit dim to me. My old LCD was way brighter and I had to turn it down to get them to match. I think I'm used to it now, but when I get a second one I'd be interested to see if it's just my eyes or if it's the screen.

I run 3 in landscape and i think out of all the games i have Diablo3 is the worst supporting triple monitor, even games date back in the 90s will be better

Yeah, that makes me think that for some reason mine isn't as bright. I've got it cranked all the way up and it still looks a little dim. I tried using Windows to adjust the gamma settings to compensate but that just made it look washed out.

Other than the minor brightness issue, it's beautiful. And it is definitely very minor. (and less annoying than clusters of stuck pixels or color washes, so I'm not complaining!)

No, this is a problem with triple monitor setups in general. Diablo3 can't be the worst as there are some games that don't support it at all. It's one of the reasons I got rid of my Surround setup. It's just a pain when that new game comes out that you've been waiting for and then it won't run on your setup because the Dev's didn't have time or decided not to support it. redface.gif

Is the gallery you linked to your own/ are you a local photographer?
Interesting that your monitor went directly from Seoul to LA while mine took a stop in HK yet still arrived the day before.
Let us know about your findings with the Spyder! It'l be interesting to hear about what a calibration tool has to say about the panels.
I also wanted to add the my monitor totally goes into a standby mode when I put the computer to sleep. The monitor turns black and the blue status light blinks. It resumes quickly without any flickering.

Not that it's a big deal or anything, but that's not going into standby. The blue status light blinking means it's trying to find a signal, not that it's in standby. Red light = standby.

It really isn't a big deal in the end. Actually, it's my OCD that's the biggest problem and just knowing its there. It makes zero impact on productivity and gaming and at this point and I can't even see it most of the time, I just wish I could forget about it. Ignorance is bliss, as they say.
Just an update to my case, for those interested.

Dream-seller never responded, and I escalated the case to e-bay support. After about two weeks of DEAD PIXELS, e-bay responded in my favor, so I'm having to ship this damn thing back. Supposedly, I'll get a refund for both shipping and the monitor, but I'm still paying right now for all the time I've wasted on this... and for having to suffer DEAD PIXELS.

What will happen to the square trade warranty I got is still up for grabs though. I'm still waiting on a response from e-bay on that.

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

This was 100% my problem! Thanks for the tip man!!

Unfortunately upon bringing my computer home from a trip I plugged my power cable into the back of my monitor and....*POP* huge amount smoke started pouring out of the vents and nasty burned electronics smell. No LED, nothing...UGH.

Guys take it from me, pay extreme attention to the fact that you need your power supply not connected to power before you plug it into your panel or you could have a completely fried board. I even have a correct power adapter for USA (110v-220v) frown.gif
