YAMAKASI 300 LEONIDAS 30" LCD S-IPS PANEL 2560x1600 - Page 5

post #41 of 289
Thanks! I wanted to put some information out there because it was pretty hard to come by when I made the purchase.

I have my old eyefinity stand but I think I can deal with this amount of lean. I'll probably just stick a couple pennies under the low side. tongue.gif

So far I haven't rocked the 670 on it yet, but I should have my computer rebuilt tonight. I did have it hooked up to my bro's build and a 6970 had no problem running a highly modded Skyrim at max settings (except AA) quite smoothly. In my experience, before my rig got wrecked, the 670 is about 150% of the power and can easily handle anything at that resolution.

You say that the blacks are washed out ?

Have you played with the video card gamma settings, and brightness/contrast ?

Thinking about getting one, but not much info around about the 30"

Also wondering how it would go with Eyefinity as a middle monitor with a 27"@1920x1080 on each side, i.e Mixed mode eyefinity.
post #43 of 289
Yeah I noticed this monitor on eBay and the price is very tempting. So whoever bought this monitor do you recommend it? I would like a screen that supports 1600p.

Not as of yet, it might help a little but I think it really comes down to the IPS panel and the AG coating. Black on black is not a strongsuit of the technology. Changing gamma or in-game brightness settings goes a long way. It sounds like a bother but honestly once or twice I would just touch the + or - under the screen and without messing with an OSD I could quickly adjust the scene to my liking.

As far as Eyefinity I'm really burnt out on it, especially portrait mode (which was my favorite) had really poor game support. The side monitors would be interesting but I only have experience with 3 identical monitors.

If you really want 1600 and like 16:10 like me, I definitely recommend it for the price. If you can find a glossy version that would be amazing. Really the 27" catleap is a better deal, I just had to have the aspect ration as I hate 16:9.

Hello,

Cheers for the info WALSRU, I have not got a 670GTX running and might got SLI depending on game performance in the future.

I would recommend it, I am very pleased with it even though I ended up paying 35% more due to customs charges here in the UK (I am trying to forget about this). It does seem to let off quite a bit of heat, this is something I have noticed, also bear in mind I have only had it a week so not long at all.

I agree the Catleap is probably a better buy, but I really wanted the 1600p resolution, there is some regret there maybe, but I will move on and try and forget about it, the monitor is great in any case.

I also agree with WALSRU regarding brightness/gamma, I have found the brightness buttons more than enough to adjust settings whilst playing games (mainly HL2, Max Payne 3 and Crysis thus far), others might want to do more via the GPU control panel and that is always an option.

so some guys are selling it as LCD and the rest as LED, which one is it...hmm.

i am guessing its the LM300WQ5 old panel. maybe they are trying to clear out excess inventory to make way for the 06 panel.

Does anyone know? I don't mind about CCFL/LED, but I don't want to buy glossy panel. I use the monitor in black terminal a lot and hate the reflections, its distracting.

thanks

Ordered one today smile.gif

i've always wanted a 2500x1600 dell for years. This will be close enough.

I'll be replacing my middle eyefinity monitor with this one.

I'll have to switch to extended desktop and scrap eyefinity. Had too many problems with it over the years anyway, most games don't even support it.

AMEN to that!

Finished my build Friday night in time for some quality Guild Wars 2 beta action. Forgive the impromptu desk, I had a few guys over to LAN during the beta and gave away all the good tables haha.

Is that a really big monitor or a really small case? tongue.gif
