Sure as hell weren't my OSD settings though so it might be a refurbished monitor. I'm leaning on that actually. The settings were definitely custom (dynamic contrast was enabled, sound was muted, brightness was set to 41, OSD language set to French) and not what I set.

I was only curious and it appears Viewsonic is like all the name brand monitor companies, as the consumer pays for a brand new monitor and after only 30 days gets a refurbished replacement.

Chances are even Eizo & NEC employs the same practice with there high priced displays.

Anyways hope you have good luck with the replacement down the road.

That's why it's best to use a retailer with good return policies. The manufacturer will just send you someone else's dud.

I agree but the point i am making is once the return policy window the retailer offers expires whether its 15 days like BestBuy is now, or 30 days like Newegg or Amazon, the remainder of the additional warranty period is handled by the manufacturer. So the consumer needs to get a swap immediately within the retailers return policy window if they want a brand new replacement and not a refurbished display.

The above is true unless you buy a extended warranty. I think Amazon has that option when you check out.

From what I have read, this seems like a very nice monitor, I ordered one today and will see it Tuesday evening. I went with Amazon, so any dead pixels and I will have no hassles returning it. I have seen a few posts recommend changing the "Response Time" from Standard to Advanced. What is the trade off, why not Ultra Fast? I know this helps with the blur, just curious why you would want three levels of response times.

Has anyone used a colorimeter and measured what the sRGB coverage is, the Adobe RGB?

Because different users have different levels of digital overshoot they are willing to accept. I use mine on level 3, "Very Fast", and if I could, I'd increase it another level if there was a 4th. Most other users seem ademant the second level is best, but it's too slow for me. It's like watching a Mexican soap opera. 

 

Sidenote: I've never noticed any overshoot except in 1 title that is prone to overshooting because of exaggerated and cartoony colours. The PB278Q however, overshot in quite a bit more. 

 

PS. Can I get hooked up in the OP as a cult member MenacingTuba!?

So overshoot is the trade off. Well I will experiment with both settings. Thanks!

Hi guys,
I'm debating wether or not to get this monitor and was looking through the specs and noticed this:

COMPATIBILITY
PC:
VGA Support up to 2048 x 1152
HDMI Support up to 1920 x 1080
DVI-D/DP support up to 2560 x 1440 (non-interlaced)

Mac®:
VGA Support up to 2048 x 1152 DVI-D / HDMI / DP Support up to 2560 x 1440


So in essence they say that when you're on a PC you only get 1920x1080 over HDMI, while a mac will push out the native resolution over HDMI?? (funny though, no mac has HDMI-ports...)
Since it does support HDMI 1.4 you'd think 2560x1440 shouldn't be a problem, but I rather be sure it does support this at 60hz.

Thanks!

Mac mini has native HDMI, but I don't believe it will go over 1080p over HDMI on either OS. From the Manual, page 17.

Compatibility

PC Up to 2560 x 1440 (DVI/ DisplayPort) / 1920 x 1080 (HDMI) / 2048 x 1152
(D-sub) Non-interlaced
Macintosh Power Macintosh up to 2560 x 1440 (DVI/ DisplayPort) / 1920 x 1080
(HDMI) / 2048 x 1152 (D-sub)
