Microcenter now carrying the 27" 2560x1440 Korean IPS monitors - Page 45

post #441 of 1116
For those on the fence, I absolutely love mine. After using it for 5 days or so, I can say that I'm very much used to the larger size of the monitor now. I'm finding my K:D to be on par if not better in Planetside using this, I'm not getting any sort of headaches from using the larger panel or what not. Picture wise, the monitor is amazing. Feels like the color uniformity is great, atleast to the naked eye. No matter how many images I put on this full screen I can not detect any sort of bright or dim spots.

As to the input lag and ghosting etc... it's no worse than my ASUS VH226H as far as I can tell. No tearing that I can see, input lag wise I feel like it responds to me immediately. Ghosting seems minimal at best, but I'm sure someone with some hyper speed TN would hate the panel *shrug*.

All in all, great purchase as far as I'm concerned.

Attached is a GOD AWFUL cell phone picture to show it in size comparison to a 21.5" monitor like I was using. Before I had 2 21.5" monitors side by side, now I'm using the VH226H as the browsing/vent/system info monitor with the Auria as the main gaming screen.

AHHHHHH, I just got a Christmas bonus and i'm feeling tempted to get one of these. I think my wife would kill me, I only just recently upgraded to a new rig and my old Samsung monitor has the capacitors going out. The boot up flicker takes about a minute to stop now.....

Someone help me think of a lie to tell my wife how this monitor came into my possession

Well, depending on how "straight and narrow" she is ... or how much of a bargain hunter she is (hopefully the latter and not the former) ...

You could always say that some guy was cruising through the parking lot and said that they delivered 5 extra monitors to his bosses store by mistake and that they are $500 monitors, but he'll take $150 for them and you ended up talking him down to $125. Yeah you know they are hot, but it was too good a deal to pass up. rolleyes.gif

Do you know how to solder? Replacing bad caps in a monitor is child's play and costs about $10 in parts.

What's the risk of buying one of these open box? Will microcenter rebox and resell them if someone returns one with a dead pixel?

My keyboard started out nice and simple... orange and blue side printed PBT 37 key set and black side printed keys for the remainder... but cheap key here, cheap key there... and you end up with that. I'm thinking of bringing it back to the normal orange/blue/black though... well except for maybe the minecraft keys... my son gets a kick out of them. tongue.gif

Since you don't need any particular reason for a return, I wouldn't expect Microcenter to do much besides verifying the thing turns on before boxing it up for resale. That said, it could just be that whoever returned it didn't have a video card capable of driving it, who knows. As long as the open box is returnable and you don't mind a possible extra trip, I'd say no real risk. if for some reason it isn't returnable, then no way.

OK so Nvidia's control panel is saying my screen is running at 2560x1440 at 60Hz, But under windows advanced settings it's only running at 59Hz. Im finding games showing the screen is running at 59Hz, and I have to force 60Hz in games.

Anyone else seen this? Im not sure how to fix this.
