Thank you! Also a question I forgot to ask, can you connect a laptop via VGA to DVI-D and still get 1920 x 1080 or something? I program on my Google Cr-48 that I have running Ubuntu 12.04 and I currently plug it into my LG FLATRON often because 1920 x 1080 is much nicer than 1280 x 720. I would like to be able to use the ShiMian with my Cr-48. I know it probably won't be able to use the full resolution of the monitor but will I still be able to output to at least 1080p using a VGA to DVI-D adapter?
I'm not 100% sure but I think it works only with dual link DVI or DisplayPort using proper adapter (which is pretty expensive).

Hey guys (and girls) biggrin.gif
I ordered the shimian tempered glass model off dream seller on saturday and it got dispatched today. However i though id let you guys know something interesting

Ipsb models are getting switched over to the new ipsi models next week. The ipsb ones are getting discontinued. I found this out when i was probing dream seller to find out whether or not i was getting the new ones and he said as i ordered for this week its random still frown.gif which sucks cos i would have proberbly waited given the choice.

So there we have it. Ill let you guys know which model i get when it arrives smile.gif

99% chance you will get the newer ISPI coz that's what I got from him a few days ago.

How would, let's say 1920x1080, look like scaled to the native res of this monitor?
I currently have a 22" 1680x1050, but I figure I could play most games at low/medium settings with >50 FPS at 1920x1080 with my Gigabyte 560 Ti and 955@3.2GHz.

I read a post on another forum which really underlined that you should prioritize native res and lower settings over scaling, but I'm not sure my PC could handle BF3 at low settings in 2560x1440. Another post on another forum stated that scaling really doesn't make things look that bad, b/c most textures are low res anyway.

There are no absolutes in personal choices. Remember that when someone says it looks horrible or whatever.
I for one, find that that scaling on the GPU (obviously) is quite reasonable, quality wise, allowing the use of lower spec cards.

I hope thats the case as they sound like they dont have the dust issue on as large a scale as the ipsb models smile.gif

I posted it in the other forum as well. . I ordered a ShiMian Lite from dream-seller, I think I got a dud .There are four vertical lines of 6-7 dead pixels (green on black background) , which looks pretty bad , I have some pictures.

What do you guys think?

I guess I will have to return it which sucks. Does anyone have experience in returning them ?

Well considering they generally go off the idea that more than 5 dead pixels is a dud i think you have grounds for complaint, what i dont understand is that dream seller is meant to check these screens before he ships them :S

Got me slightly worried as i ordered on recently :/ Guess ill have to wait till it arrives. But i would definitely drop him a message with links to the photos, a video wouldn't go a miss as well to demonstrate it. What condition did it arrive in? it may have been damaged during transit.
