post #3591 of 6172
Well the glow on the right definitely moves/disappears when I look from different angles. But the yellow seems to stay put. I don't think it's normal, I used to have a 27" iMac.

But I don't know if I can handle sending it back to newegg and then waiting for a new one. I'd be monitorless for like 2 weeks :O

Just checked both my displays using black screen. And i have isp glow on both of my ones. Not sure what your problem is. Do this go to this link

http://jasonfarrell.com/misc/deadpixeltest.php

click on black make it full screen turn of your room lights also make your display brightness to 75 then move a meter and move up and down and see if the yellow stuff goes away

I'm still using crossfire 5770s in Windows 7 - they're more than sufficient for Source games and such. I mostly got it for the resolution, and not gaming.

Welcome to the club mate, how are you liking the high resolution so far???

Thanks man smile.gif I'm absolutely loving the resolution biggrin.gif the only problems I'm having is trying to make my blacks less gray and my whites less blue I downloaded quick gamma and adjusted the gama to around 1.74 but I have no idea what I'm doing I would really appreciate it if somebody sent me a beginners guide to calibrating one of these monitors especially because it doesn't have an ost

I absolutely love it. I was previously using an Acer 24" 1920x1200 monitor (which will soon be my secondary monitor once I have more desk space when I move in about a month). Getting a new 1080p IPS monitor would have been a downgrade in the resolution department, so this it is. 1440p is great, especially with a tiling window manager and things that require lots of info on screen (writing papers, programming, etc). I find IPS (as expected) to be more visually uniform across the monitor. I paid ~$400, but it was well worth it. I'll use this thing until it dies. Maybe I'll get two more one of these days, and start gaming across them...

Hopefully this might help (look under the Color Calibration section - http://www.overclock.net/t/1225919/yamakasi-catleap-monitor-club.

or if you do a quick google on overlord monitor calibration they have their own forum with info on it.

I moved from a 1200 to a 1080 for about 12 hours before returning that and getting my 1440 back as that just felt like burning my eyes off.

I use my monitor for work sometimes and it makes a night and day difference when reading docs and specially comparing things side by side.

Glad you guys like.

Also if anyone out there knows of any good color calibration guides for different monitor brands please share the links or info and I will add those to the OP.
