YAMAKASI 300 LEONIDAS 30" LCD S-IPS PANEL 2560x1600 - Page 4

post #31 of 291
After reading more, 10 dead pixels is acceptable.

Will wait for Pixel Perfect, even if it's another 100$.

Hello there,

Received the monitor earlier, seems good so far other than two rather large issue.

There do appear to be some issues regarding pixels, maybe, they seem to show up on the attached photos. I honestly cannot see them when taking the photos, but they do appear to be there on the black background. The other backgrounds seem OK mind, but I will leave you guys to judge that. Obviously this is very difficult to tell using photographs, but as far as the panel is concerned I am very happy, the bottle of water is a 2 litre bottle, to give you a better idea.

450

The above is the packaging the monitor came in, no complaints there, well packaged and no damage whatsoever (at least I do not think so, more on this later).

Now onto some 'dead pixel test' I found via a quick Google, blue;

450

Green;

450

Red;

450

White;

450

Black, note a couple of dots and a few smudges of mine;

450

I do not consider the potential pixel problems above, as having played a bit of Crysis 2, tried a couple of films and used it for general use for a couple of hours, I can see no problem with them at all, I think you would have to look for them to find them if that makes sense. Having said that, if knowing they are there annoys you and you look out for them, I can see how that might be an issue.

Now onto the two 'big' issues...

Big issue number one was being hit big by customs/VAT for a combined 30%, which I do not really want to go into. Needless to say I was far from happy, but then that was my own stupid fault for not checking before hand. That is the UK for you. Having done some reading up, I found on another forum that you can pre-arrange something with customs to pay less - as long as you get the guy to write down a customs ID number (not sure on proper name for this number) on outside of package. Needless to say this was all too late for me... Having said that, as most of you are not from the UK I doubt you really care.

For an idea of size;

450

The black box is my work desktop at 1080p, previously that was full screen on my 24" 1080p Iiyama monitor. So the extra space you get is quite considerable.


My next big gripe with the monitor;

450

The panel is tilted to the left, I believe this to be an issue with the stand. I haven't tried fixing it at all, I do plan on removing it from the stand and re-aligning it somehow over the weekend (I am currently working from home and cannot spend too much time on it). But at the moment, as you can see, it does actually look pretty awful and I noticed it straight out of the box. I do wonder if this is to do with it getting bashed during delivery maybe, but then as mentioned above the box looked fine.

It is early days, but assuming I can sort out the tilting issue somehow I would say I am happy with it. I am very please with the panel itself, I see no issue there whatsoever, but the tilting could be a real issue if I cannot find a fix. I would be most unhappy if I have to fork out more cash for another stand, but will be contacting the seller later today with the above image.

Any questions or tests you want me to perform please fire away, I will look to do more tonight but now I have to go back to working, which is far more enjoyable on this monitor it has to be said.

I don't see any reflections when its black screen, is the screen a matte one? thanks
post #34 of 291
Yes, I believe that to be the case. In fact I am certain it is.

I feel pretty good about this, I am usually rather put off by glossy displays. Having said that, they are supposed to have better colour/brightness for games/films, but I have always preferred matte from my experiences of the two, reflections are a royal pain in the arse.

There is someone on another forum (overclockers.com.au I think) who has received the monitor, they did not complain in the thread about the dodgy tilt of the monitor. I haven't asked him anything on there mind, as I am not a member.

The cheapest I see now is $679.00

I would jump on this if it goes back to $600 even with the flaws.

my review on hardF :
i have it 1 dead pixel on the far side but ... I can see a yellowish tint against white background on the left side down side and right side ... It is very disappointing and annoying. ...
297
i prefer my q270 for gaming, more 16:9 resolution avaible after 1080p than with 16:10, less input lag, and 1920x1200 on 30 is blurry..., 2560x1600 is better but look worst than 2560x1440p on q270,
other things Scaler is odd , i have more input lag at 2560x1600 than with 1920x1200.
and it's not a question of framerate, it appear either on windows desktop.
the screen made an annoying buzz with brightness on maximum or minimum.
end of story

FINALLY I got to upload pics of the new monitor. Like we said a few pages back I don't think anyone here bought the 30" Yamakasi Leonidas 300 (2560x1600) so I wanted to share for anyone on the fence. Don't mind the set up, this is the table we built my brother's computer on recently. I'm slightly homeless atm but I'm rebuilding my rig with insurance money and this monitor was the first purchase to replace an eyefinity set up. I highly recommend going for these super resolutions over multi-monitor, but I digress...

7602938848_0bbdd30d47_k.jpg

All in all I'm very happy with it, a quick list of pros and cons.

Pros :
- Tons of real estate, personally I love the height of 16:10
- Accurate color, duh it's an IPS
- No noticeable ghosting or input lag
- Very classy metal finish
- Solid tilt, swivel, height-adjustable stand
- AG coating kills glare and reflections
- Much cheaper than 30" competitors
- No dead pixels or dust

Cons:
- AG Coating blurs some dark blacks together
- Overall black levels (dungeons with realistic lighting mod) average or below average
- Darker scenes suffer from poor viewing angles
- Slight buzzing on backlight, not a problem for headphone users or gamers
- Dang heavy

Feel free to ask any questions. Overall this thing would be pretty much perfect if it came in glossy. I would recommend this thing to most gamers or photo editors. The exception being if you play games like Skyrim and have blackout lighting mods or horror style games where you spend a lot of time in the dark. Even then I didn't find navigating dark dungeons any more than a minor annoyance. For your majority of games (I plan on using it primarily for Guild Wars 2) it will not be an issue.

Also I have a slight tilt issue with the stand as well.

Are all these 100% matte? Or are they a mixed chance? Does the eBay sellers mention about the monitor is glossy or matte? I could not find it mentioned in the listing for some reason.

Thanks

They are matte.

Nice post :--)

Are you thinking about replacing the stand at all? My tilting issues do not seem that noticeable whilst using for day to day, but I still find it annoying when viewing from a distance.

How does the 670 GTX handle the res in games? Have you tried many?

I am very very pleased with the panel, just a slight issue with the stand/tilting, might look to re-align at the weekend and take the whole thing off.
