Microcenter now carrying the 27" 2560x1440 Korean IPS monitors - Page 55

post #541 of 1116
Just picked one up from the CA store. The monitor they had on display had a glossy finish but the one I bought has a matte finish. My previous monitor had the same finish plus no issues with dead pixels or light bleed so I don't mind.

Yea the AG coating isn't the end of the world but it does appear a little obtrusive when displaying white

E: Just pulled this off HardOCP

All of these monitors are now AG. If your box has a plastic handle in the middle of the top panel, glossy. If it has two perforated cardboard cutouts of the sides for your hands, AG. Same SKU, model number, all that stuff. The microcenter employees didn't know until a customer returned one and wanted to make sure his next one was glossy.

Doesn't do much good for anyone ordering online but for those in store that could make your shelf search quicker.

For anyone asking or wondering about antiglare, I ordered mien on I believe January 6, 2013, and got an ALL GLOSSY screen-- Perfect! Now reading that many people are getting a matte antiglare... I may jump to other brands if I decide to do triple monitor. Shame, really. I was very pleased with the one I got, Micro Center's great response (their FB page is ran by a fast replier ho is helpful) and knowing if there ever was a problem, shipping would be cheaper than shipping to Korea, and faster, too.

If I read about glossy back in stock when I'm in the market for 2 more monitors, no doubt I'll go for Auria. If it's still matte, I'll go Catleap.

I waited 2.5 days and they haven't shipped mine. I'm driving from Pittsburgh to Cleveland to buy one. That way i can also pick between matte and Glossy and check for bad displays ^_^

What a way to start the weekend.

Someone needs to tear down and get the model number of the panel for the matte ones. Would be interesting to know if they've changed panels.

Noob question, but how good will this be for gaming? During my quest to find a great 120hz gaming monitor I eventually stumbled into this thread and I'm basically convinced to buy it. Can someone shed some light onto what it is that makes this such an amazing monitor, particularly from a gaming PoV. Thanks in advance.

This monitor isn't really directed as gaming specific. For starters, it has a standard refresh rate of 60Hz and it has a builtin scaler which increases lag. It does however have a great track-record for limited dead pixels compared to some sub $500 2560x1440 monitors. Depending on your budget you could look at Catleap/Crossover/Shimian's which have a single DVI-D input if you want a 1440p gaming monitor, or look for a 1080p 120Hz monitor if thats a sticking point for you. As for the Auria, I would most liken it to a cheaper Dell U2713HM since it has multiple inputs (DVI, DP, HDMI), 1440p resolution, 60Hz refresh rate, and for now an anti-glare coating very similar to the dell.

They had a glossy one on display when i went there today and the colors blew my mind. Now that i have the matte one. Not so much. It is VERY similar to the U2713HM.


EDIT: With a little bit of calibrating i made it better however, it has that weird matte look to it on the whites.

I have the same issue. not sure what's going on or how to (and if I need to) fix it. Also, the default screen resolution in windows (not Nvidia) over displayport is 1920x1080, but it can go up to and displays fine over 2560x1440.

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

Ordered a replacement monitor a few weeks ago since mine came with a dent in the back and a bad AC adapter. I received the Matte finish, no dead pixels, 1/2 inch thicker bezel, which I'm not a big fan of. The whites look off-white and running this dead pixel test, it looks like the colors swap when I change focus between windows. Additionally, there's a slight hue in these tests that fades from the top to bottom (red to green or green to red depending on which color combination I pick). Something I haven't noticed at all with the glossy finish (all the color combinations blend to an even gray on the glossy LCD). Anyone know what's causing this?

I'm a bit hesitant to keep this monitor even though the original one I receive arrived with a giant dent in the back. I never see the dent, but know it will devalue the monitor if I ever decide to sell it.

A 60hz refresh rate isn't exactly 60hz. It's 59.94hz which is why it's being reported as 59. It's the same thing and there is nothing wrong with your monitor or computer. It's simply much easier to market and sell the refresh rates in even numbers than as 59.94hz.
