Microcenter now carrying the 27" 2560x1440 Korean IPS monitors - Page 51

post #501 of 1116
Did this, along with setting the ICC profile in "Color Management - System Defaults" and "Use Windows display calibration" in the "Color Management - System Defaults \Advanced" tab. Didn't notice any change in the monitor; though maybe it's just too minor for me to notice?

My "local" MicroCenter has 10+ available. I'm really considering getting this thing. Half way through this thread and I haven't seen too many complaints that would throw me off.

Thinking it would be wise to pick up the 2 year warranty as well. hmmmm.

Mine is still going strong. Albeit only a little over a month into the experience. I didn't opt for any warranty... assuming that if it made it a year, it should last. Seems like most of these lower budget high end monitors die quickly. My usual experience with track records like that, is if it survives the first year, it'll keep going for a good while. I could always be proven wrong, and that gives me excuse to buy new electronics again. biggrin.gif

Hmmm. I've never thought of it that way. IDK. I like your logic but I hate thinking about the "what if" scenarios. haha

Well if any thing the 1 year extended isn't too much. $49.99 or something like that. Getting kind of excited now! XD

Back in stock online! There was about 5-7 days where it was in stores only.

Tempted to get 2 more for surround gaming, but has anyone here done it with this display? The bezel is pretty thick on one, so putting three side by side would make a HUGE gap with that. Anyone who has this display have pics to share? Experience? Mods?

Happy with this monitor, ran some tests for dead pixels and haven't noticed any yet. Getting a monitor arm for this delivered in the mail soon.

received a replacement power brick within 3 days of talking to EQD customer support. No hissing, works great! Hopefully it lasts.

Cosmetically, there is an issue with the back that i didn't notice till I mounted it, there's a slight indentation where it looks like the plastic wasn't well formed and caved in. I'm going through Microcenter to look into what can be done. It's been a bit of a headache dealing with these two issues.

But so far I'm really happy with the screen quality, after spending $100 on an ergotron monitor stand, I'm $200-$300 shy of what I would have spent on a dell. I guess only time will tell whether the savings were really worth it.

Thinking of picking up one of these in the future. I saw some recommendations to use Spyder4Elite which I figured was between 20-50... Needless to say I was way off as I'm seeing 250 usd for it. That plus a new stand at around 100 puts it very close to the dell.

If it is possible to fix the display without needing a program I would like to know. I use two monitors while gaming and for this to work I keep my games in windows mode and that allows me to use my second monitor for whatever I want to.

There are other display calibration stuff you can try that are cheaper, and there are cheaper sypders. You can also just play around with the settings yourself and pick the combination that is pleasing to you. Finally, pabloedvardo did post some settings to try out.

Had monitor for over a month runs good sill. No dead pixels, bought new stand , need to adjust lighting in room during days a little btr due to reflective screen but that was to be expected and is all good. Main issue is being the moron I am, I forgot that higher screen resolution requires more powerful Gpu wheee.gif Not being able to run games in ultra any longer is a bummer because I can only imagine how sweet they would look if they were running at more than 15 fps on this beautiful screen biggrin.gif .. I have a windforce gigabyte 660 ti 2 gb oc oc'd at http://www.techpowerup.com/gpuz/kabgr/ . Do you guys recommend getting another 660ti (if so what brand) My 660ti isn't that old of a purchase either bums me out if I have to sell it somehow and get 680 . Life of a pc gamer I suppose.

Are there any VESA mount issues with this monitor? And does it come with HDMI 1.4?
