I recommend clicking the brightness down 4-6 times if you want decent black levels

The problem:

I can't get all 3 to display at once.

Previously I had 3 x 1920x1080 monitors in eyefinity, 2 through DVI, one through an active display port adapter.
Currently have 2 x HD6950's installed.

Now that I have larger resolutions, I can't use the single link DVI slot.. so I have 1 running through DualDVI on GPU1 and one through DualDVI on GPU2
The third will not turn on at all. Nothing through the active minidisplayport adapter, and nothing through the single link DVI slots.
Swapping the plugs around I only get output through dual link DVI slots. Even removing everything except 1 monitor through the active adapter and it refuses to show anything but the red 'no signal' light.

Now, with it all plugged in and 2 displays on if I go into resolution settings (windows default or CCC doesn't seem to matter) it will detect the third monitor as there, but also states that it is through a VGA connection (CCC identifies it as display port). Whenever trying to force enable it I get an error of 'unable to apply settings'
I was under the impression that with nothing else plugged in, even a passive minidisplayport adapter should work fine. Also when going through single link DVI it should display at 1920x1080 but I can't get anything out of it at all

Is your adapter a Dual-Link one? You need one like this that has an separate USB plug for power.

I had a feeling this would be the cause..

Mine does not have the usb plug, just says Active on the side of it. The thing that annoys me is there are a lot without the usb being advertised as dual link.. much like the one I have when they clearly can't support higher than single link resolutions.

Doesn't really explain why I can't run it at 1920x1080 on a single link adapter though..


Another thing, I was planning to have the centre screen in landscape with the 2 either side in portrait so that the bottom of all 3 were level.. It seems however the portrait mode is just over 1" lower than the lowest setting in landscape.
I may have to resort to shoving a book under each one like I've seen someone else on here do.

Is anyone selling these on eBay with a Perfect Pixel thing? I don't want a dead pixel one, plan on buying two of them.

I imagine the only way they could guarantee "Perfect Pixel" is by opening up monitors and testing them until they find one with no dead/stuck pixels. Now they're stuck with a bunch of opened monitors they have to sell. These monitors are cheap for a couple of reasons, one of them is the screens are A- quality. You just have to accept the risk and hope for the best.

I'd rather buy one of the other Korean monitors that have a perfect pixel thing. I would just prefer this one because, in my opinion, the design is the best and the build quality looks solid.

I'm very curious how they're managing to guarantee perfect pixel. Honestly, I'd personally take a PCBank with Perfect Pixel if I was going to do it again, fast response time and perfect pixel makes up for the appearance IMO.

EDIT: NVM, further investigation indicates they are indeed opening the boxes and testing the monitors. Warning to others, if you're going to buy from the sellers offering perfect pixel I would highly recommend against getting a non perfect pixel version from them. If they're opening and testing monitors, that makes me think the non perfect pixel versions are pretty much guaranteed to have been opened previously and have dead/stuck pixels.
