Did a blacklight bleed test moments ago and couldn't see anything
post #342 of 3395
Did you send ta_planet a message and make a special request? Their listing description would imply that they make no guarantees of a defect-free panel.

No, i didn't send him a message before buying.
I bought it and then i asked if he could check it. Sadly i needed three mails before he answered about a perfect pixel test and that it would could slightlyy more. But the display was already on its way as he sends very fast.
I received my display today and found a little note that the display is tested and has perfect pixels. Even a thank you in my mother language! thumb.gif

Edit:
There is only the non-tested version of the IPSMS listed in ta_planet's store

Alright I'm really thinking about getting one of these after I move next year. I'm planning on a couple different upgrades around the same time. How do you think my GPU (MSI R6850 in sig) will do with this monitor? I don't need to play games at 2560x1440 but definitely will do everything else at that res. thumb.gif

I think everything will be doable with it ,but you probably won't be able to game at higher settings as limited in VRAM and whatnot.

Im running a ATI 6850 on my Ipsms and it works fine, havent really set to ultra high settings in games, i doubt it will do that at 2560x1440, but mine does what i need.

Thanks for the replies. Sounds like I'll be fine with the R6850. I can always get something more powerful if I feel the need. That's why I'm planning so far ahead. biggrin.gif

Oddest thing though....I though these were "A" and lower graded panels but after the bar code (and on the lil monitor pic) on the back...mine is stamped A+.

Hmm, I don't have anything of the sort on the back of my monitor. Nothing is stamped around the bar code. I wonder if it's something the seller does upon inspection to differentiate between different panel qualities.

Could you post a photo, please?
