Just got one home from MicroCenter in Fairfax, VA.
- Someone in another post said this monitor is not glossy at all, mine is glossy, lots of reflections.
- Black levels are only average in a dark room (watching movies), and are nearly identical compared directly to a Samsung S27A350H. Even with brightness turned down both of these appear to me to have very washed out blacks next to a much older DELL E207WFPc TFT.
- Colors are steady, and detail is good at all angles, but there is a wash of brightness coming from the sides and lower corners in darker images. Based on experience/memory the viewing angles are nowhere near as good as the Dell U2711 I use occasionally at work, but are slightly better than the Samsung. In a well lit room with brightness turned up the contrast and colors are fantastic, and the wash in the corners isn't really noticeable.
And now the problem:
Windows 7 identifies this monitor as a "BOEVT Co.,LTD.
- Display - Boevt Terra2760WLED." -- I found another reference
to a monitor with that ID in this thread
on another forum. The pictures seem to show the same button panel on both monitors. The Nvidia Control Panel identifies the monitor as "TBD."
to run the panel above 16-bit 1920x1080, and lists it as "1024x768 (native)", even with the supplied Dual-DVI cable. Pixels look soft/interpolated, so I feel this should
be able to work at a higher resolution. Also tried VGA, HDMI, and Display Port on three other computers. All insist this is a "TBD" 1920x1080, all come up the same BOEVT Co.
according to Win7.
There were three out of box returns at the store. I'm wondering if this is not the same panel everyone else is getting or if there's just something crazy wrong with this thing.
What does everyone else see identified in the display control panel?Edited by soupysoupsoup - 10/16/12 at 8:01pm
