Me too. Edge to edge all glass eh? Sounds nice thumb.gif

They seriously look like Samsungs Mike (other than the lame Shimian logo)! Really nice aesthetics with aftermarket stands... thumb.gif

I already have an Achieva Shimians on my home server but going to buy 2 more for my main. I'm not really digging the bezel on the Achieva Shimians. How do the CrossOvers compare?

crossovers got my vote x3 thumb.gif

I have a Shimian but think I will purchase 2 Crossovers. Rather the bezels. Not going the x3 route because I tried surround gaming with my 3 23" LGs and really didn't like it.

Hmmm. Some BF3 and Crysis 2 benchmarks could be nice but I also dont know how to bench those games. If someone knows how to bench BF3 and Crysis 2, please let us know as I would also like to bench those games.

I purchased that game for 3Dvision last year. It was very nice in 3D, but i never finished the game. 1440p gives me a reason to start over and finish it.

I have a Yamakasi and extrremely happy with it, but if i had the choice now, I would get the CrossOver. (not that there is anything wrong with Yamakasi)

Since I've owned it, played at regular 'ol 1920x1080 of course....then 3D with a first gen Acer GD235HZ monitor, then surround at 5760x1080....and now 1440p. So far I think the bigger 1440p monitor has been the most enjoyable.

100% agree with that.

 

In any game I played in 1440p, it has always been the best experience.  I also had an Acer before but it was GN245 which was I believe not released in USA. It was a nice monitor, 3d was nice, 120hz was nice, but 1440p has been a much better overall experience for  me. I DO like 3D but it needs to get waay better support. The beauty about gaming in 1440p is that its not a new technology rather its a new higher resolution and pretty much every game out there will be playable in 1440p. Few games have optimziation issues like Fear 1, and the HUD elements are as small as an ant, but these are very minor annoyances.

 

@ everyone else

 

I added few more FEAR 1 screenshots.

Just Cause 2 is awesomely fun, can't wait for the multiplayer mod too be released. When it first came out my HD3870 used too struggle and crash trying too play this game at all so I never played it until the recent steam sale and love it.

Vote x2 for the Yamakasi, I'm extremely happy but I have the tempered glass version which is slightly more reflective but makes the monitor look as good as its image quality.

Never had the pleasure too try 3D but although I loved surround, 1440p is more awesome & preferable too surround gaming in my view.
