Few questions about those Korean IPS

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I've started reading about those and it caught my attention.so I've got few questions.
1)How would they do for gaming?
2)Any significant differences between models? I know that the CrossOver has the best stand and look,the Catleap can get the new PCB for overclocking,the PCBANK has slightly better response...anything else?
3)Is it worth spending the extra bucks to get a "pixel perfect" one without any dead pixels? I know buying these monitors is pretty much a lottery,but doesn't it make any "safer" with that?
Thanks.

1. For gaming you can bet your games will look gorgeous. If your computer can handle that res.
2. Some of the Yamakasi Achieva models (possibly Catleap too) have tempered glass. Certain models have built-in speakers and others have HDMI but cost 2x as much.
3. I wouldn't really say that it would be worth it unless you are really picky if you have a dead white or black pixel out of the 3686400 pixels. Most people have gotten theirs with out dead pixels anyway so its like a 15% you get more than 1 dead pixel.

All of them use the same screen so the overclockable PCB should with any of them... except the single CCFL model.

Thanks.

Theoretically, it should, but I doubt it practically makes a difference. It doesn't garuntee dead pixels, only that you should get no stuck pixels. As for safer, well, people have gotten stuck pixels even with the pixel perfect garuntee. If it gives you any peace of mind, then sure, but just know that you can get a panel without bad pixels on either the pixel perfect and non-pixel perfect, but you can also get bad pixels on either as well; it's just that you've spent extra money on the pixel perfect case and none in the other.

Thanks for the quick replies.
Also,I'm living in Canada and I've read that few sellers send an adapter...wondering if I'll need another power cable or the base one should be fine?

If canada has their own unique power plug then yes you will need an adapter.

Never heard of a yamakasi achieva, maybe you're referring to the achieva shimian or yamakasi catleap, the ones with tempered glass cost about 100 dollars more NOT double. Instead of getting pixel perfect just talk to the seller and ask them to test the unit before sending it to you (thats what i did when i ordered a shimian ipsbs model from ta_planet), he sent me a monitor with no dead pixels.
