Microcenter now carrying the 27" 2560x1440 Korean IPS monitors - Page 19

post #181 of 1116
Went in the store and looked at it today, the stand and the housing seem cheap, but the screen was nice. I can't decide if I want this or if i should get the crossover that has a lot better stand and nice aluminum housing but more chance for defects also this is 424 and the crossover is 342. lol. Tough choice. is 100$ worth the guarantee and ugly appearance?

So let me sum it up what I've gathered from this thread and a visit to Micro Center, and correct me if I'm wrong:

- Not really for super-twitch gamers, but as it's around 5ms refresh it's very good for most people, and pretty much better than the standard was all of five years ago. (meaning people with monitors 4+ years old will see it as the same refresh or better?)

- Does include the DVI cable capable of using the max resolution.

- [this one I found out at the store in Orange County CA] Does NOT include a Micro Center warranty (which costs extra) thus if you have an issue you must ship it to the manufacturer, and would cost a small fortune. Thus you really wanna spend $50 extra to get the two-year micro-center warranty? (However, store warranties always sketch me out. Look at how ****ty Best Buys warranties are.)

- Wobbly stand? (not clear, and if so, is it easy to put a different stand on it, unlike some of the Korean ones from eBay where it can jack up some internals/cause scary popping sound?)

- No dead pixels, no edge bleed. Slightly uneven lighting, but not bad/hardly noticeable.

- This doesn't have AG coating.

- Doesn't have a brick for power (or does it?)

- S-IPS, same as Apple's.

- 10bit? (True or is it 8Bit with simulated 10?)

1. The Stand, it's a standard vesa 75mmx75mm.
2. Dead pixels too early to know how bad or good it is but look at the korean ips threads for an indicator/
3. It has to have a power brick how else would it get power ;p If you look at the pictures you'll see a weird round connector with about 4 pin holes.

I just picked up one of these from our local Microcenter 2 days ago...

No dead pixels on mine smile.gif

Pros...
2560x1440 res.
Lots of connections.
OSD for setting colors, contrast and brightness.
No AG coating makes everything very clear and looks really good in a dark room.
Text looks great.
Good colors.

Cons...
It's almost impossible to tilt the stand up... It is like it's to tight...
The display can suffer from "image persistence" if you leave something on the screen in the same place for a while. :/
OSD still seems a little basic...

Some great info all - keep it coming. I'm thinking of picking up 3 for gaming and putting them in portrait mode. Of course I'd have to use another stand. Can we get some input from FPS players please? biggrin.gif

Thanks. I did see that. But later in the thread some people seem to challenge those numbers. Might have to pick one up and test it myself.

Seems about right, considering all the extra processing it has due to the inputs.. but i do think those numbers are too high.

Oh, this can be a deal breaker.

Image persistence like on game HUDs? Are we talking a brief millisecond persistence, or like Plasma style image persistence as in burn-in?

How long does it take to wear off? Does it clear completely?

I left WoW running on the login screen all night... then right after closing WoW I set the desktop background to a light gray and could see a very light shadow effect of where the ESRB Notice is normally at when on the login screen.
It was completely gone within a hour or 2 after that.

I also have a Dell UltraSharp screen with a even worse problem with image persistence... But I also normally leave it on 24/7 with ChatZilla Open.. tongue.gif
