550 on Amazon is such nice price.

I've had mine since release day. Still going strong.

I've been wanting a 1440p 27" IPS/PLS. Microcenter has these right now for $499.99 and I couldn't resist that price and picked one up today. So far I absolutely love it. No dead pixels and no issues with the PWM backlighting.

Are the custom settings in the OP good everyday settings or are there other good settings out there? Or should I just stick with a preset?

These do not overclock. I have seen some videos of people claiming to get 85hz but that seems to be very rare.

I am still running the presets and the monitor looks great. Although when I get sometime I would like to sit down and run a few of these configurations people have created. If you search this monitor in google you find tons of configs.

My monitor syncs up to 85Hz at 1440p and more (120Hz) at 1080p but sometimes after booting it will not sync up without a reboot. Possible a graphics card problem because if it was only a monitor problem, turning it off-on should fix it.
Also can't be sure if the reported refresh rate in the monitor is really displayed in the monitor or simply converted in the internal scaler because while testing 1080p@120Hz with 3D Vision the displayed rate was clearly not 120Hz. The switching between the 2 image perspectives wasn't uniform.

Tony,

how does it look at 1080p, when scaling down? What refresh rate do you think you were getting at 1080p?

Looks like a 1080p monitor with slight upscaling distortions (1080p to 1440p). As for the refresh rate, I don't know a reliable way to measure the displayed refresh rate but my monitor accepts up to 1080p@125Hz.
Using 3D Vision there is an indication that something isn't right. Either a software incompatibility between forcing 3D Vision to the monitor or the monitor scaler cutting down frames.
I tested the monitor with the Refresh Rate Multitool and there is an indication that the monitor drops frames at 1080p@100Hz and 1440p@85.

Good info - thanks. I think I'll add one of these to my Christmas list. smile.gif

tftcentral's ICC profile and settings look better to me than the settings in the OP. not every panel is identical so you'll have to judge with your own eyes.
