Why would you need a corsair PSU for this monitor?
post #132 of 357
Not for the monitor, I also bought a new graphics card. VGA MSI GeForce GTX660 TF 2GD5/OC http://www.msi.com/product/vga/N660-TF-2GD5-OC.html Hmmm maybe i found something: http://forum-en.msi.com/faq/article/power-requirements-for-graphics-cards, it says I need minimum of 24Amps or Ampere probably only to power this graphics card and it is a little over clocked already out of the box. And I think my PSU does 34A 2 x 17A http://www.antec.com/Believe_it/product.php?id=MTIyOQ== So 10A left for the rest, need to recalculate it.

My 30Q5 passed Russian customs. Apparently it should arrive this week. But I could pick it up only at Saturday.
About power consumption I think that you need PSU that gives 24 AMPs on each of the connected rails. If I am mistaken, correct me.

Thing I notice most about my 30Q5 now is that when I look a the 24 inch monitors elsewhere in my office, they look tiny. Second most is just how much stuff is on the screen, it really improves the workspace, though it begs for something better than Windows native window handling to make optimum use of the space; you can fit multiple useful windows edge to edge.

I wouldn't count on the warranties from ebay overseas sellers. At best you'll have shipping , perhaps two directions, to deal with. Just hope for a good monitor, or ability to return it with a one-way shipping fee if it is bad out of the box or in the first couple weeks. Worth a try to enforce a warranty but I'd be ready to write it off, or else pay for a 3rd party warranty closer to home if it matters to you. I'd call that more an insurance policy than a warranty, and figure I'm self-insuring on a one in twenty chance it will fail in a year now that it has arrived in good shape.

Do you guys know what to do if something will go bad with this monitor?

Congratulations! You've made the right choice (I think) smile.gif

Mine also passed Moscow's international postage exchange point and now is heading to EMS in Tver. I'll get it at Saturday.

I just received mine and its pretty awesome! I don't think I have any dead pixels Which is almost unbelievable but seems to be true so far. I've had a dell 24" monitor when they first came out and I can honestly say that its almost identical to the Matte finish on them. I can see why some people don't like it though because it has a kind of shimmery surface and is like your looking through a filter (But not bad really, just like a soft filter). My last Hans G 28" didn't have this coating and was more clear but all in all I would suggest it to all who are on the fence. Although if your paranoid about this "coating" just go find a Dell IPS with the Matt coating and inspect anything with a white background and you'll see what I mean. On white specifically, you can notice the coating almost reflect the LCD light off the surface coating. Again, the low price overwhelmingly justify s this monitor in everyday. Also, I believe I sense a very very slight input lag. Its barely there but still noticeable. I have a feeling most of the 30" displays probably have this since there are very few of these panels actually produced. Well, off to enjoy the 30" goodness. Thanks!

It's really sad to hear about input lag. Some people here wrote that input lag is unnoticeable. Is it comfortable to use it in FPS games?

Hi,

I checked out 3 1920x1080 27" IPS panels (Samsung LS27B370HS, LG IPS277L-BN, AOC I2757FM) and a 29" LG 29EA93-P in a shop the other day and was quite taken aback by this "sparkle" or filter, which was really noticeable on the Office section of the demo that was looping. That was the part with lots of white background. As I have been planning on getting a 30" Korean monitor, I wondered whether the higher resolution would eliminate that grainy quality. I didn't realise this was down to the anti-glare/matte coating. It now makes sense because I have that same effect on my cell phone. The thing is on my phone I like it because I couldn't stand the scuzzy finger marks that showed up on clear screen protectors. Also, a cellphone screen protector can simply be peeled off and costs relatively little.

So, my questions are, I came across a reasonably priced perfect pixel tempered glass 30"er, Would that also have that same grainy coating? And would anyone know if a perfect pixel model also meant none of the dust concerns that some have experienced with tempered glass units. And is tempered glass like what the current Apple 17" displays have?

My other surprise was that text in Office looked pixelated. Is that normal? These screens were all hooked up with an hdmi cable. I read somewhere that a dvi cable would improve matters but from what I saw, it looked like the improvement required would be asking a lot of a simple cable.

I do a lot of web reading and MS Word text work.

Thanks for any help.

I received mine at Saturday.

"+"
No dead/light pixels at all.
Monitor appeared to be bigger that I ever imagined it.
Body of the monitor is whole made of steel.
Color is perfect.
Much more details can be seen in games such as Skyrim compared with 24 inch 1080p monitor.

"-"
It's heavy and almost impossible to transport it from one city to another on your own hands (16,5 kg box).
Stand doesn't hold monitor in highest position (weak spring?). And I don't understand how to fix it.
Normal brightness not to burn your eyes is the lowest that can be set.

I will post some photos and videos of my 30q5.
