The thing that always bothered me about my current dell (2407wfp-hc) is the gamma shift when I move my head away from the center of the screen. It uses a S-PVA panel so I'd like something that doesn't have gamma shift like this monitor does.

So I was able to reproduce my green screen problem on a friends machine and believe I know the problem. Somehow my graphics cards arn't pushing out Dual-DVI. I tried both GTX 460's and my GTX 680. I tried every PCI-Express slot in my motherboard. Is there anything I can do to enable Dual-DVI so this monitor will work with my machine?

Graphics Card: EVGA FTW GTX680
Motherboard: Gigabyte X58-UD3R V.1.0

You will not have that problem with these panels.

What video card did your friend have?
AFAIK the GTX680 has two dual-DVI ports.

Put my order in for a qh270-lite from green-sum and it left Korea today, so we'll see how long it takes. Pretty excited!

Check to make sure you have up to date video card rivers?

Are you sure you don't have a bad a set of dual dvi cables or you are using regular dvi instead of dual dvi cables. For me I bought some after market cables and my monitor was basically plug and play.

Hi, long time reader; first time poster smile.gif

I was set on ordering the achieva tempered glass one from green sum; BUT it shows that up to 20 dead pixles is considered OK for this monitor, WTH!! he's selling the lite version but with 5 dead pixles max! I've been researching these korean monitors for a month or so, and it's driving me crazy! Does he have a bad patch of the tempered glass ones that he wants to offload or something?

Edit: I'll probably make an offer to red cap and see if he can match the price!

yes, that was it. Its working fine now.

Can i use this monitor with my macbook pro (2010 model) ? i tried a mini display port-DVI adapter but that didn't work.mad.gif


Thanks
