I'm pretty sure the P at the end of the model number only designates that it has a different, higher quality stand which pivots.
As for if it scales at 1440p, well I guess I'll find out. Heard some discussion that some people think that there is a scaler at all will be enough to eliminate the possibility of an overclock that high. We shall see. I aim to find out smile.gif

Very interested to hear your thoughts when you get it. smile.gif

I will be certain to come back here and let people know my findings on this monitor. The monitor has already shipped. Based on others accounts of shipping from this seller, unless I have any issues with customs, I should have it by the 15-17 of October. Might take me a day or two after receiving to determine OC'ability. It's my first display OC, hoping it goes smoothly. Of course it may not OC at all so there is that.

Cheers

Hey just a heads up, I actually also just but the bullet and ordered a pivot version, I'll also put up my findings when I receive it. (According to them I should receive it next week).

OMG It's HERE!!! lol. Woke up this afternoon and it's sitting on my couch, thank god roommates were around to sign for it. Seriously though, it shipped Friday from South Korea and it's sitting in my living room on Monday afternoon. That has got to be expensive for them!

Time to dig in smile.gif

This monitor uses the same multi-input board as the Witech Multi Limited Edition, and a monitor pulled before release from Achieva Shimian, and one released by First Semiconductor (I have a prototype of it). The reason for that is the 125hz operation is bogus. The dvi controller board allows an input of up to 125hz. So your computer will say "Heya. I'm sending 125hz (or 130hz, in my case) to your monitor! All is well!". The monitor is saying "Oh sweet! A 125hz input! I can totally take that! Thank you!." Then it tries to pass it to the Timing controller attached to the LCD panel and the monitor is like "Hey...TCON...buddy, I got 125 of these frames for you. What??? What do you mean you can only accept 60 from me? Fine...I'll send you frame 1, 3, 5, 8, 10, 12, 15, etc...."

Basically...it frame skips. It will accept an input higher than 60hz. The OSD will tell you that it's outputting 125hz. But it only ever sends a 60hz signal to the LCD panel itself. Sorry to burst your bubble.

Edit: My comments are in regards to the 27" model. I don't have any info on the 30" monitor. It's very well possible that it hits 75hz.

Ok, so I admit I am new to the display overclocking thing but it's not looking great.

I am able to go overclock all the way up to 120hz and get an image though it doesn't look like it's any smoother than the default 60hz. I also get artifacting at 90hz and above. I am currently using the dvi-d cable from my older 120hz monitor and haven't tried the supplied cable yet or hdmi 1.4a.

Also have a stuck green pixel on the left hand of the screen which is wish I could say is hard to notice but it sticks out pretty bad on dark scenes. Light bleeding on off-center bottom left as well. Not ideal as of yet. Will do some further testing.

** It appears HyperMatrix is correct. His explanation would describe what I've noticed. Oh well.

Oh crap, I guess I better cancel my order before they ship. Thanks for the heads up and do you think you might be able to return your order?
