Microcenter now carrying the 27" 2560x1440 Korean IPS monitors - Page 42

post #411 of 1116
So, hopefully I can have enough money to get one this month.

What else will I need with it besides a display port cable?

So do they use the same panels as the Dell U2711? Then they're not exactly identical to the Korean monitors then.

Ok while waiting for 7970 i took this auria apart. Here are the findings:
Panel: LG LM270WQ1 (SD)(E3), V1, FW V1.00
Assembled: 08/04/12
COntrol board: MST9785D

The most fun thing i found was a hidden menu with some interesting info like how long this unit was used for. TO access the hidden menu, tun on the monitor(with the power button) while holding down the menu button. U will see a blue menu popup, press menu and u will see the usual OSD menu but with red burn-in mark on the bottom. Scroll up until u will be in blank menu(right above brightness) and access it. U will get pop up with bunch of changable options. My panel was on for 44h 33m for example. Post if u find anything interesting in that hidden menu

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?

Where do you find them for 270 on ebay? cheapest i see are 360

It definitely is not the same as the Dell U2711 - that is a wide gamut panel, which is actually a pain unless you are really into tweaking color management.

I -thought- the Dell was a true 10-bit, but looking at the specs again, it seems to be 8-bit +AFRC (some kind of interpolation.) The HP ZR2740w is also supposedly 8-bit +AFRC but it definitely does not have the wide-gamut colors of the Dell. The Auria is much more comparable to the HP than the Dell.

(for reference, I currently have the HP, Auria, and an HP ZR30w (wide gamut) - and had a U2711 for a few weeks.)

When i searched before there were listing for $287 now the cheapest i see is $299 but it might still work. Just make an offer on that page for $270 and see if gets accepted, friend bought one for $270(free ship) but in listing starting at $289. If doesnt - just wait a bit and make an offer on the new listing with another seller when it pops up - they keep changing often but overall trend is prices going down(6 month ago cheapest was $360 a year ago over $400). Apparently retail of these in korea is around $250 so the lowest i can expect these to get is the same on ebay. THen again more manufacturers making these might drive the prices down or up if LG cannot make "rejects" fast enough:) Now there are 30" screens (IPS LG grade A) also but they are still expensive and will follow the 27" path - eventually dropping in price

Thats a question that can be answered only by u, i love glossy screens(since i mostly work at night), some people hate them and prefer matte. These Auria use LG LM270WQ1 panels(same as Apple but not the same as Dell(those use LM270WQ2 - which some say is the same as the LM270WQ1 but we might never know)). Just search for LM270WQ1 on google and read reviews on monitors that have it inside - mostly korean or Apple. From what i gathered Apple(and Dell) reject panels by batches(test 1 out of xxx panels and if it doenst pass(for their undisclosed reason) they reject entire batch. It might be the only that tested panel was bad and rest of the batch is perfect even by Apple/Dell standarts but they are now rejected and get grade A(as opposed to accepted grade A+) and sold to highest bidder. So your korean monitor's panel might be 100% as good as the one inside $1200 Apple monitor and u trade half eaten apple on the bezel for satisfaction of not overpaying by a mile for what is essentially the same monitor. If you want to get as close to Apple monitor(with all the input ports, OSD and brick and mortar warranty) Auria from MC seems the best/cheapest way to go. U can get a multi-port, perfect-pixel monitor(might do some leg work for that one if unlucky but Auria monitors from MC are good with pixels it seems) for $400 same on ebay(minus the "just bring it back") would cost you around $450. Its no wonder people are considered lucky if they live within driving distance of one of MC's(or as i call them CPU kings-best prices(BM or online) on CPU always). I been shopping in my MC since 1993 and really hope they stay afloat for years to come!

I just picked up one of these, And so far I can't get past 1080p with a dual link dvi cable. What am I missing?
post #420 of 1116
Above poster, are you 100% certain its a dual-link DVI cable? I.E. it has the full pin matrix. 24 small angled pins and one large horizontally aligned large pin is the correct type of cable. Its also possible that it only accepts displayport for 2560x1440, though that shouldn't matter. HDMI 1.3 also supports the resolution and color gamut of the display.

A question for those that own this particular display, is it capable of being "overclocked?" I attempted to purchase an Achieva Shimian with the 1.07bn color display, but its on backorder. I don't like the housing as much for this display, but I can deal. I also don't care for the stand, but I already use a monitor arm, so thats a non issue as well.
