Thanks! +rep!

I have no idea how different reps/helpdesk people/technicians of ViewSonic can all disagree about this, very sloppy if you ask me.
I've had someone tell me it works, but after asking the same person again just to make sure (said person went to a technician apparently) she stated it wóuldn't work. Then another said it would work on a mac but not on PC, however when I linked to the manual he corrected himself that it wouldn't work. The third directly said it wouldn't work.

Really glad that you tried it out, really appreciate that.


Still am thrown between the U2713HM and this VP2770. According to PRAD.de the U2713HM outputs up to 430cd/m2, versus 310 for the VP2770. Quite a large difference and since they both have non-pwm dimming that's not going to make the decision for me. However I find it very odd that Dell themselves state the screen has only 350cd/m2 max, while PRAD.de states here that it indeed goes up to 430 at 100%.

Why do you need that kind of brightness? 150cd/m2 is the highest I would go if you also use your monitor at night.

I am a fan of natural light too but you would need to be working in a very bright environment indeed for max brightness. Anything over 300cdm/2 and your monitor is now a flashlight at night, lol. Usually displays that have 500 cdm/2 are used as TVs which you typically sit much further away from then a PC display. What will you be using your display for primarily?

Technical reps know pretty much 0% about any of their products. Overclock nation is privileged to have some reps from varying companies like Corsair and Cooler Master on the forums that actually know anything about their products....I asked some Samsung reps about the difference between two similar monitors they produce, and they told me only one was real and they don't produce any other such monitor. Yes. They do. Turns out, they just had a different model number with an extra letter for Canadian stores. 

 

Why are you buying a monitor for it's brightness? Using the VP2770 past 45% brightness will destroy your eyes. Brightness levels past 150cdm are meant for department store displays so the customer can see the picture through aisle flood lighting.

Well, the thing is, my student room has its window to the southwest and the desk is against the window (so if I'm not looking at the monitor I'm looking outside)
When it's sunny outside I really need a higher brightness so I won't be staring at something that looks darker than say a blank A4 paper you hold out in front of you.

My current setup (MBP + 23" ACD) automatically scales the brightness of both screens using the macbooks sensor from minimum (night) to somewhere inbetween (cloudy day) to maximum (bright sunny day)
The screen of the MacBook should be able to push somewhere around 300cd/m2 which is just enough (although it does have a glossy screen). The ACD used to have 350 or something but is now only a tad higher than the MacBook (when properly warmed up, it's a pretty old LCD) but only on the brightest of days I feel myself wanting just a little more, that's why I'm hesitant with going for a screen that's 'only' 310

I know automatically scaling wouldn't be possible with either the dell or the viewsonic but I recon I'd be changing the brightness up and down quite a lot.

I'd be using the screen from movies to gaming to normal desktop work.

Well it makes sense then why you would want a very bright monitor. Assuming you do not wish to add a curtain or blinds to control the ambient light level or add a monitor hood, a monitor that could really crank out the candelas is your only other option I can think of. Having to change the brightness back and forth would slowly drive me mad though. My vote is monitor hood and which ever display has the better warranty service in your region.

Thanks.
I do wish there were more monitors that can scale their brightness automatically, or at least controlled somehow over USB. That's one of the reasons why I got and still love my ACD.

You guys had any luck trying to overclok it ?
