Microcenter now carrying the 27" 2560x1440 Korean IPS monitors - Page 22

post #211 of 1116
I'll be in the Queens area in a week so I may stop buy in the Yonkers location to get one. Problem is that they have none left, has anybody in here asked about them at the Yonkers lcoation? Thanks.

Looks frickin' awesome!
post #217 of 1116
I almost pulled the trigger on a Catleap on Tuesday.I just did`nt want to deal with Ebay.I came across this thread on Thursday evening.Microcenter only had 1 in stock.Got it yesterday morning.I could`nt be happier.I had one stuck pixel.Got it unstuck.There is no backlit bleeding.Games look awsome.
post #218 of 1116
I just bought the Auria from microcenter. I'm using a 2011 13" macbook pro with a thunderbolt to DVI adaptor, and the screen looks great. The only problem I came across is that the thunderbolt to DVI adaptor ($25 one) isn't dual link, so the monitor is stuck at 1080p. If you have a similar setup, be advised that you have to use either the $99 dual link DVI adapter, or a mini displayport (thunderbolt) to display port adapter.

Lastly, the plastic casing and stand is rather pathetic. Does anyone have any suggestions for an alternative stand with height adjustment?

Informative stuff I read about it.


"Thanks to this thread, I didn't even know this monitor existed 24hrs ago.
http://hardforum.com/showthread.php?t=1693679

aka EQD 27" WQHD LED Backlit LCD Monitor at Microcenter for $399
http://www.microcenter.com/single_product_results.phtml?product_id=0384780

The Microcenter pics don't do it justice, it looks like they were taken with a fisheye lens at VGA resolution. (maybe even a slightly different model, at least the base is different.) Not the most beautiful monitor I've ever seen, but certainly not bad. The base is obviously cheap at this price point, but it does swivel and (sort of) tilt. Comes with DVI dual-link and VGA cables, and power brick.

I'm comparing to an HP zr2740w, both connected to an XFX Radeon 6870 via DisplayPort.

Boot screen, the Auria shows a little more backlight glow, it is more evident with more light in the room, maybe due to reflection from the glossy screen. Pretty even at any rate.

auria01_boot.jpg


The picture overall looks very similar to the HP, maybe a slight bit more saturation out of the box. Although this is listed as a 10-bit monitor in the specs, it does not exhibit the wide-gamut oversaturation you see in the HP zr30w, Dell u3011, and Dell u2711. I noticed a bit of banding in a greyscale gradient image, versus the HP, which showed none. Very minimal though, I didn't try to take a picture of it.

I don't do any FPS gaming, so I can't comment too much on input lag. My scientific test involved spanning a window across both monitors and dragging rapidly up and down. They stayed in sync as far as I could tell. On my other machine I have the HP paired up with an old Dell 2001FP, and there is obvious lag on the Dell doing the same window jiggling.

I did notice that the Auria takes a couple seconds to change resolutions, compared to the HP which is pretty much instant.

I ran a stopwatch test on both monitors concurrently, snapping pics while it was running. I don't know how valid this test is, but it showed no difference between the two.

HDMI, DVI, VGA, DisplayPort inputs (DVI and VGA are hidden behind the stand - crappy design but seems common in cheap monitors.)

auria08_back.jpg

Oh and the built in speakers just worked over DisplayPort, no tweaking required. Nice bonus.

I've got no particular interest in overclocking this, but I might look into it over the weekend if someone else doesn't do it first.

Overall I'm blown away with this monitor at this price. The input options, mostly local availability, and warranty make this an awesome alternative to the eBay models. It's actually cheaper then the Korean multi-inputs. I don't necessarily love the glossy screen, but it does make the AG on the HP look a bit dingy in that regard. Would be nice if some manufacturer could figure out a compromise between the two."
