Microcenter now carrying the 27" 2560x1440 Korean IPS monitors - Page 35

Thoughts, anyone?

The multiple ports may come in handy if you may want to go mult-monitor later and you don't have to deal with adapters that can cost up to $60+... an hour and a half is still better than waiting a week or two for RMA processing if you find some issues in the first 30 days... but if you are planning to take a risk with the Catleap or Shimian - those are great value!thumb.gif

I have been wanting to upgrade my 24" ultra sharp to a 27", but am also having a B of a time deciding on which route to take.
The Asus VE278Q gets great reviews, but from what I remember reading in the past the 1080 stretched onto a 27" screen just didn't look that great. I found the Auria 27" at MC around my area, but am not 100% sold on that one either. any suggestion on what route to take? I've been spoiled by my Dell for so long :/
thanks

I went from a 27" Samsung 1080p screen to the Auria from Microcenter and it was a HUGE change in experience for me. If you don't mind a glossy screen (some see this as a pro) I would definitely try the Auria out, worst case you return it and get your money back.

Doing some work over the weekend (lots of spreadsheets) made me realize just how much more space I had. I was previously using the samsung + a 19" in portrait mode to view my work, after the switch I could actually see myself dropping the second monitor for productivity.


On the other hand, if you decide you don't like the MC screen it looks like Dell is coming out with a new U2713 so it may drop prices of the current model or even launch at a lower price point.

Well i suppose i can try and it see how it goes, like you said. I was also wondering why the Dells were on sale at so many different places lately. I put in another thread on here that I was looking on CL and actually found a few people selling the 27 and 30" ultrasharp's as-well. So torn right now. 1900x1200 and above ftw redface.gif

Anybody use this Auria 27" with a PS3?
I just got one of these and hooked it up to the PS3 with a monoprice high speed hdmi cable I got awhile ago. I tried playing MW3 and it seems like the resolution is like 800x600. It looks really bad. Also, when it switches from the menu to the game, the screen goes blank and I have to turn the monitor off then on again.
Is there any setting on the PS3 that I need to change or is it just the scaler in the Auria not working that well?
Can I use a hdmi to dvi cable or would I get the same results?
I swore that I've read other people's review that said the Auria and PS3 work well but I just can't seem to get it to work right with the PS3.

not too sure about the PS3, but does it have any video settings you need to change manually?

The only setting i saw in the PS3 was to turn on/off 1080p/24p but that didn't work.
I'm not sure if I'm missing something with the PS3 setup?

Normal PC works good and it's an excellent monitor for the price. Waiting on delivery of my GTX 670 FTW to test some gaming on it.
I just wish I could get the PS3 to work. rolleyes.gif

Anyone have any color profile recommendations for a lower brightness setting, around 50 or so? I was using the monitor at 80 brightness using a profile found in the middle of this thread (http://www.overclock.net/t/1257538/microcenter-now-carrying-the-27-2560x1440-korean-ips-monitors/250#post_17389912) but I've been having some pretty bad eye strains, headaches, and even slight nausea. It's my eyes getting used to LCD panels all over again. Ack.

Hoping the lower brightness helps, otherwise I'm not sure I can keep this thing. Unsure if the eye strain is being caused by the glossiness, screen size, or high resolution, if not the brightness.

1) Gradient banding - I've heard a proper 10-bit ICC profile will fix this but I've tried a few and still nothing (I'm running pabloedvardo's RGB right now)
2) Color uniformity - on white/grey screen and web pages the screen is noticeably more red at the top and green at the bottom. It's pretty of noticeable and annoying while surfing the web, just curious if I should live with it or if it's worth returning and rolling the dice on another.
All the feedback in this thread is awesome. Thanks.

Hello! I haven't encountered anything about a 10bit ICC profile fixing banding. I only notice some banding issues in the black (pure black) output, no banding elsewhere. I also notice really, really good color uniformity (I angle mine and view it from different areas of my room quite frequently), so if you're noticing significant banding and uniformity issues, yours may be faulty!

I'm coming up on my next calibration soon, and I've been thinking of making a new calibration with lower brightness smile.gif I initially did it as bright as possible because I wanted to see how good of blacks I could get out of this monitor at its maximum output. However, I agree! This thing is SO FREAKING BRIGHT that it can be a bit of an eye strain, especially if you're viewing it up close.

So next time I recalibrate, I'll post my settings again, and target a lower brightness for better contrast/deeper blacks, and a little less eye strain (hopefully)!

so this may be mentioned somewhere here already but the thread is simply too long for me to search. I have a EVGA GTX480 on a 3570k system. Curious how it will handle games at this resolution. Diablo 3, Borderlands 2 soon, guild wars 2, blacklight retribution to name a few. Anyone still on a gtx 480 care to comment?
