Here we go.
First of all, this is a very long tread and the info is spread all over the place. So instead of reading through all the pages, I figured I would ask my question, since it is fairly straight forward, I hope. I am looking to get a 2560x1440 resolution monitor and there are two options that sort of is my primary solution. The Asus PB278Q and the Samsung S27A850D. These two monitors use the same PLS panel from Samsung, however, there is some difference in the image generated, such as gama, colour saturation etc. Not a big deal for me since it will be an upgrade no matter what from my Benq G2220HDA. I started looking at some cost options and the Korean monitor "club" with its A- grade monitors seams to be a valuable choice, however, there is one problem and that is NATIVE SCALING. I read in a tread that the Qnix QH27 does not have native scaling and this is a problem, simply because I am planing on use one monitor for both my PC and PS3 or PS4.
Does the Achieva Shimian QH2700-IPSMS Edge Eco 27 have native scaling ? If not, which one of the Korean club monitors does ? 1080p is the maximum output resolution on PS3 and PS4.
Before you start telling me that there is only one Dual Link DVI input on these monitors, there is a solution for this:
IOGEAR 2-Port Dual-Link DVI Cable KVM with Audio (GCS982U)
- One dual-link DVI console controls two dual-link DVI/USB computers
- Dual-link DVI resolution up to 2560x1600 at 60Hz
- Port switching via remote switch button, mouse or hotkeys
- Hotkeys allows independent KVM and audio switching between computers
- 2.1 stereo sound and microphone support
- Plug-n-Play; No software required
- Power-On Detection - If one of the computers is powered off, it will automatically switch to the next powered-on computer
- USB mouse and keyboard emulation for error-free boot-up and instantaneous recognition when switching computers
With this switch, one can use a 1 x dual link DVI port and use a computer and game console as long as there is native scaling built in.
All reply's are welcome.
PS: Both the Samsung and ASUS have more than one port and native scaling
