trying to get hold of a board for one of these monitors any-one know of where to get one from

I haven't heard of anyone offering these, or even looking for them. You best bet might be to contact one of the eBay sellers.

There is obviously a defect rate on these monitors and they may have extra working boards from monitors returned for other issues such as broken screens. I would try messaging some of the sellers mentioned frequently here and asking them.

Just checking in after a few months to say that I have had no issues with my monitor. My slight yellow tint has been slightly adjusted by upping the blue and reducing the red. Just flew through Crysis 3 with SLI GTX 670's on VERY HIGH everything. (FXAA and 2x).

Purchased it from dhsummer for 280$ shipped.

Anyone find a way to clock these things? I'm not looking for 120hz, maybe like 70-80.

Hey man. Iv been looking for a board two. Found a few people around alibaba.com selling them for 80-100usd. A bit out of my price range as i am not entirely 100% sure my board has failed. I just get nothing up on the screen. A bit of a risky investment for me atm. :/

Was with a friend who opened it up to see what the problem was my monitor has been out since Dec I didn't want to send it back. from what he has said about the board is that it is a very cheap one he also said to ask the eBay seller (Green-Sum) about a board I asked last week got a quick reply stating that they will ask the manufacturer about the part, Then today they have asked for the serial number so I can get my monitor back on feeling good.I have been giving Green-Sum a hard time I feel kinda feel sorry him/her/them

I have a question maybe you guys can answer, so while I'm waiting for my monitor to show up I've decided to start streaming my PoV in WoW. I've been looking at the AVerMedia C985 card, now the card only outputs 1080p, it has from graphics card to capture card and then an HDMI out to the monitor. Now this means you can ONLY use 1080p and basically can't be used with this monitor unless you get the multi-version and even then it will only display 2560x1080? Is there a way I could get a splitter and split the connection between my monitor and the capture card so I can still display full resolution but only record 1080?

Thanks for any help, I just don't want to waste money.

I purchased one from green sum on eBay that was supposed to be pixel perfect. Well it has a column of dead pixels on the left side with >50% light bleed and dark spot in the lower left corner. Filed a claim with ebay and now he's dragging his feet on issuing a refund. Asked me to take pics of the box so he could file a claim with DHL and I think he believes I should wait on them. Definitely not happy about this.

So that was my first and last experience with these cheap Korean monitors. Went and ordered a Viewsonic VP 2770 off Amazon that gets here tomorrow.

this monitor doesn't have a scaler built in (unless you got the hdmi version). all scaling is done by your PC graphics card. i have read a couple of people got their PS3 to work but only in 720P and it did not look very good (there words).

It was working fine before I formatted but now it just has a blue flashing light on the front. Was working on a gtx590 but now using a gtx660ti.
Has red/orange led when turned off. When turned on, the led goes blue solid for 5 seconds and continues with blue flashing.
Using a DVI-D dual link cable (no analogue pins).

The monitor shows up in the computers display settings with maximum resolution setting as 1024x768 with a dark blank screen.

note: the same issue occurs with a single link DVI cable and cables work well with 1920x1200 on 24" samsung monitor.

Any tips or reccomendations would be greatly appreciated.

cheers.

Also, I noticed some people asking how to dismantle the screen -
The black front bezel pulls off with ease.
Remove the screws.
Pull off the white bezel.
Lift up panel and carefully disconnect attached cables.


Has anyone had this issue before?
