Microcenter now carrying the 27" 2560x1440 Korean IPS monitors - Page 95

post #941 of 1116
I read some of the MC reviews and found this.

The biggest issue to warn you gamers out there is to MAKE SURE TO USE THE DISPLAYPORT and NOT the DVI to significantly reduce the input lag. Using the Displayport under the native resolution will bypass the internal scaler, which seriously reduces input lag. If you use the DVI port, it will not bypass the internal scaler.

Is this true? So if I were to use a displayport cable (displayport on both ends) from my Auria to my 7970 it would bypass the scalar and thus I'd have similar input lag to that of my Catleap that doesn't have a scalar?

there's 2 layers there and they're both white
OH **** you pealed off the polarizer! We said there are two layers, one is the polarizer and the other is the filter on top. You pealed off part of the polarizer. You should have been more careful. The polarizer does not come off easy, you must have been pulling on it.

No its absolutely not true, The DVI bypasses the scaler as well so long as you use native resolution. That person simply has no clue what they are talking about, we have already done tests to prove this.

Tests done side by side with the Asus 144hz (fastest monitor on the market). Tests were done on all ports at native resolution and lower. Native resolution have no noticeable lag through DVI or Display port as they both bypass the scaler. Once switched to a lower resolution, lag was noticeable since the scaler was activated. As stated before the person you spoke to has absolutely no idea what they are talking about. They have created their own reality and are believe it unfortunately.

How in the world does a test for input lag on an Asus 144hz monitor have anything to do with a different monitor, especially this monitor?

There must be 3 layers then because I found two, there was one on top that peeled off like a window cling but was brittle and kept breaking on me, it was also hard to see through and yellow in color, I assumed this was the AG coating. The layer below was thicker with a thicker adhesive, I only pulled that one up a little bit in the corner when i was trying to find/separate the layers.

I gave up part way through because it kept breaking, I wanted to see if the difference was worth continuing from a different approach. Good thing I stopped I guess...


So now what, try to return it? I threw the box out. Can I get a new polarizer? maybe one that looks better than the current one did anyway?

MC has no questions asked returns... so they might not even check the condition of the monitor when you return it, just that it's in the box. If that's what you want to do, of course, but that's up to your morals. No box=no return though.

"Tests done side by side with the Asus 144hz"

You know, where they hook up TWO monitors at the same time, and compare them.

The_Gamer294 - You would actually knowingly and willfully break a monitor and then return it? That disgusts me. Ranks up there with buying a Rolex, taking it apart, then returning it claiming the thing was broken when you got it.

Testing an Auria vs an Asus? Would you care to link said test? Because from what I know of input lag... that's possibly one of the worst ways of going about testing input lag that I know of.
