Bezels have a very slight taper, but mostly flat.

They work pretty well for dual monitor use, but I don't tend to play games across both (nvidia surround doesn't work with dual head, so my gaming is restricted to a single screen) - mainly just multitasking. I'm considering getting a third and running them in triple portrait mode for gaming, although the bezel is making me wonder if it'll be too annoying. My guess is that it won't because in a triple setup your focus point is the centre and the bezel gaps will fall on peripheral vision boundaries, especially on monitors this large.

I'll give it a try, but I'm not expecting it to work. Will report back with results.

Is this monitor HDCP capable?

The NVIDIA control panel says yes, but I haven't tried it.

By the way, overclocking doesn't work. I can get it as far as 68Hz, but no further.

Might be like the newer Catleap's, which means you'll need to trade out the PCB for one that's overclockable. tongue.gif

Got 2 "perfect pixel" Potalions coming from bigclothcraft. It's Monday morning there right now, let's see how long it takes to get to me here in the Seattle area.
post #17 of 322
Got one coming my way too. Ordered 6/14 or so so should be coming soon.

Does anybody have any "methods" for testing the backlight on monitors, I'm not really experienced with buying monitors but wanna make sure I've gotten a good one when it comes. Also if anybody could exlpain "backlight bleeding" as well I'd appreciate it.

Specifications:

FAQs:
- It seems to be the cheapest "perfect pixel" option (mine was $310).
- Universal voltage input; will take anything from 110-240V.
- The manufacturer is actually "Orion Telecom" and the model is the "Potalion 2710QW".
- Only one model has surfaced so far - the DVI-only input with no scaler hardware and no speakers.
- There is a set of VESA mounting holes on the back of the monitor - no need to disassemble anything to get to them.
- The stand is pretty flimsy, but works if you have a sturdy desk. It'll tilt forwards and backwards, but be gentle as it could snap easily.
- It comes with a dual link DVI cable, and they work fine with my GTX 670.
- Nobody has yet tried to overclock them.
- Backlight bleed has ranged from non-existent to significant; your mileage may vary.
- There is no OSD. Most of the buttons on the side do nothing; only power and brightness up/down work.
- The monitor comes with a FOUR year warranty in South Korea, so that's a small reassurance.
Will update this post as more information comes in.

Can you use this monitor log in and set up MB bios ? Many these monitors can not show bios setup menu and picture.

Which MB chip do you use? P67 ? X79?

Yes, BIOS etc works here. You need one of the supported graphics cards. I have a P67 with the GTX 670. The 670 detects (via EDID information) that 2560x1440 is the only supported resolution for the monitor, then it scales the other resolutions up to that.
