Microcenter now carrying the 27" 2560x1440 Korean IPS monitors - Page 41

post #401 of 1116
got the Auria from microcenter yesterday for $490+tax with 3 year replacement warranty, if anything happens during 3 years i just take it to MC and they either give me a new one or a newer version(if any come by then) or just refund me $400 i initially payed for it. Was thinking about going ebay route and u can get a new one for around $270 shipped now but that would be a basic model with only dual link DVI connection and no on screen menus of any kind, also if it dies on u -its a headache trying to get a refund as well if it dies on u in 13 month - u got $270 paperweight. SO after thinking about it - MC route seems the best = better model with all connectors, on screen menu and dont have to worry about it for 3 years.
No dead pixels(couldnt find even 1) = works as it should(still waiting on 7970 ghz edition ordered from amazon) now how would i calibrate it? Which color profile is the best for this puppy?

Do the Microcenter monitors have 8 bit or 10 bit panels?
post #403 of 1116
from what i saw - 10 bit

ok i am starting to think i am doing something wrong, let me explain:
Finally just now i figured out how to set my new Auria from MC to 2560x1440 with HD 3000 graphics(waiting on Visiontek HD 7970 GHz edition to replace my sold HIS 6970(great card) and have to rely on build in graphics for now (Asus P8Z77 Pro motherboard with I7-2600k(HD 3000 GPX). For those interested HD 3000 will not go up to 1440p resolution on DVI or HDMI(might be ****ty HDMI cable), most i was able to do on Auria was 1080p, it might work with Displayport - but dont have that cable(will come with 7970 though). That is until just now i remembered i didnt try old and true VGA analog route and low and behold my old VGA cable from 1990's can do full 2560x1440 although analog but still! Now i run the test of dead pixels again (this one) . I turned off the lights in the room(night now) and shut down other monitors(eyefinity setup) and went through all the colors 10 times, each time spending good time on them until i felt like i was acid tripping(i read:)) and could not find a single dead/stuck pixel. Thats is why i think i am doing something wrong - how can this monitor not have a single stuck pixel(found about 20 dust particles and thats after thorough cleaning(LCD liquid/microfiber/compressed air)-all on outside none inside though)??? COuld it be that because i am using analog VGA connection @ 2560x1440 on this test - somehow that makes them hide/not visible? Or am i just doing something wrong here- this is my 1st 2650x1440 monitor and my others have always been 1080p or 1200p. SOrry for long read - and those that still are reading(here is a cookie) and any thoughts?

Well, it's not uncommon to have no bad pixels, but frankly you have not seen full resolution yet. Hdmi from pc video cards aren't spec'd for 2560x1440. It's not your hdmi cable. And don't believe it if your VGA cable says its doing that resolution. You need a displayport or dual dvi cable to use this monitor at full resolution.

You may be running your monitor out of spec of VGA. Possible, but improbable.

HD 2000/2500/3000/4000 only do 1440p on DP (officially).

That could be(vga lying about doing full 1440p), but i can see that its not 1080p since i got other monitor sitting next to it in 1080p and this one is definetely not 1080p. Also was able to run 1440p video full screen and when ran 1080p video it only took about 70% of screen(full screen). Also HDMI can do 1440p - that i know for sure but u have to have a cable that will support it, also see the link below for more info i found

Here is official answer on that from Intel, and according to him not only DP can do 1440p. Anyhow getting my 7970 Ghz edition in 2 days so will resolve all this and finally be able to check if i got uber lucky and got a monitor without a single dead/stuck pixel(hope its true but wouldn't hold my breath)

Officially the Auria only supports 1440p through the DL-DVI or DP connector. Check the manual.

According to Asus, your motherboard doesn't do 1440p through either HDMI, DVI nor VGA. Although 2560x1440@60hz is somewhat... weird, since the VGA port can push 2048x1536@75hz, which is higher bandwidth than 1440p. So you may very well be doing 1440p via VGA.

2560x1440 works on this monitor with dvi-d. The monitor is beautiful- zero dead pixels.
