Microcenter now carrying the 27" 2560x1440 Korean IPS monitors - Page 36

post #351 of 1116
I'm thinking of picking up one as well, 2 MC's both 3 hours away, but neither store has them in stock, and I would really like to see and test one in person before bringing it home. ( compared to ordering one online )

I had this monitor but took it back. Frame rate took a hit and that bothered me.

But it's a decent monitor. The buttons felt really cheap and it's difficult to get the cables in the back...other than those things I liked it.

I ended up replacing the stand with a Monoprice stand for cheap, and I like the monitor even better now. It feels so much more sturdy, and I have easier access to the ports with this stand as well.

I think I'm going to be returning this beast either this weekend or in the next couple.

As I mentioned in another thread (http://www.overclock.net/t/1295183/headaches-slight-nausea-from-new-monitor-1440p-glossy), this thing is continuing to give me headaches, sore eyes, and nausea, either caused by the glossy display, backlighting/flicker, or possibly even just the higher resolution. It kills me to return it, because I think this is a great deal for a 1440p display, but I'm also trying to not buy a new video card for another generation or two, so sticking to 1080p should help the old 460 along for another year or two.

I did, however. also find a ton of dead pixels in the bottom left and top right-ish parts of the screen. They're only noticeable when the screen is completely black, and they're scattered green and red pixels--in the same area, but not right next to each other. I can't see them AT ALL except on higher brightness settings, on a completely black background, and when looking very closely. Backlight bleeding seems to be present on the bottom and a little bit on the top, although it doesn't really bother me that much except on dark backgrounds.

I'm hoping in the next year or two, an affordable matte 1440p display crops up somewhere, preferably local, so I can try it out for a few days or weeks to make sure these vision and headache problems don't occur once again. I am really glad I didn't buy a Korean display, since I imagine I'd have similar issues with one of those.

What settings are you using? Out of the box I found display way too bright. I am using Standard, Brightness 50, Contrast 55, DCR Off, and a User color (100-100-93). Then I tweaked the display with my video card software settings. This helped a lot to tone things down.

I would def return it with those dead pixels. Maybe go for an exchange? It would be hard for me to go back to 1080 now. My first Auria was defective where it would not show video for over a minute, and then nothing at all. Current monitor is working good. No dead pixels, some light bleed in lower right.

If you read the first reply in the post I mentioned, the guy mentions that the PWM flickering is worse the lower brightness you go. I've been playing with all sorts of different brightness levels to see if that ends up being true. I need to do more testing, but I tend to get headaches regardless of the brightness level.

I've had extended periods of 70 brightness (stock), then 50 brightness. Having issues with both. Now I'm actually trying 100 (which brings in the super retina-blasting whites, which are a whole other issue) to see if my headaches may actually be caused by the PWM.

I could not get the PWM tests from this link:

http://www.tftcentral.co.uk/articles/pulse_width_modulation.htm

working at all. Either this display isn't affected by those problems, or, more likely, my point and shoot camera is completely awful. Or I'm goofing up the test.

Has anyone ever tried to do a PWM test on this model to see if we're affected by this? With the monitor needing 100W, I'm thinking we may not even be using LEDs? Sorry for being clueless...

Also, mine has a couple issues that may or may not be typical:

Does not show the BIOS of my motherboard (in sig). At all. Monitor has no picture until windows boots. I ended up plugging in my 19" 4:3 monitor to the left-hand primary video slot, then all was well.

Takes ~10 seconds to pop up after a game changes its resolution, or Windows changes its resolution. I've had a couple times where it takes longer than the 15 secs you have to click 'ok' and it reverts back.

Mine does not show BIOS screen over DVI (have not tried DP) and only shows video when windows is fully booted. Your 10-15 second delay sounds similar to my first monitor which was almost 2 minutes. My current monitor takes about 2 seconds to change resolutions. Still slow compared to my NEC LCD.

I'll look at that PWM thread later.

I picked up one of these monitors from the Microcenter in Westmont, IL a couple weeks ago. I replaced an aging Dell 2707 (27" 1920x1200) and I honestly cannot be happier with it, for the price it is such a great deal. Mine has 0 dead/stuck pixels, but I do have like a darker horizontal area near the bottom edge of the screen that is only visible on white backgrounds and scrolling. I think others have mentioned some of theirs do it also, my one laptop does this and honestly does not bother me at all. I just replaced a 7970 with a GTX 690 out of frustration with amd's drivers, with the 690 I do not see the bios or post over DVI, but it works fine over Displayport. The 7970 I was able to see the bios and post over dvi though.
