Right at the buy point for a 1440 monitor.

I'm an ARMA 2/3 player, DayZ player.

I'm thinking the VP2770 is the one to buy vs the Asus PB278Q...that is until I started seeing all these dead pixel stories for the VP2770. Is the dead pixel thing a small or large issue in terms of real numbers? Kind of freaks me out as it would ruin my experience and I know it would drive me crazy.

Advice? Look elsewhere or buy one?


Lastly, what video card will I need? I'm an nvidia user at the moment and was thinking of a 770, that ok?

Cheers

I bought one of these and while it didn't have any dead pixels, it did have that weird gray spot on the backlight. Exchanged it with another and now it's perfect. No dead pxiels on the new one either.

I use DVI-D and mine does this maybe once a quarter. Maybe Once a month. Might be the cord. It will not respond to touch to turn on

I just got a VP2770. It's my eighth 27" monitor after 5 U2713HMs and 2 PB278Qs. It has a couple of specks of dirt/dust embedded into the surface of the display. It also has the weirdest "dead pixel" issue I've seen yet: there's a black speck that actually MOVES around the screen. I currently sit here and watch it slowly migrate its way past my mouse cursor on a white background.

At least the backlight bleed is minimal.

$900 after tax to buy this in Canada. I should have just stuck with one of the crappy Dells. At least they were $300 cheaper. I guess it's back to Amazon to try my terrible luck again.

My advice to anyone looking to buy a 2560x1440 monitor: either wait for the tech to get better or just buy a $300 Korean. It's now obvious to me that the name-brand OEMs are using the same crappy panels anyway.

Here's a link to my moving "dead" pixel. Bizarre.

Aside from that, how does it compare to the others you have had?

That's not a dead pixel, that's a small insect. I've had fruit flies inside a monitor once.

Aside from the dirt and the moving speck, the VP2770 has the least BLB of any of the monitors I've been sent, and obviously there's no crosshatching as on the Dell. Overshoot is also noticeably better than the Dells. If it was free of debris on the screen surface and pixel... anomalies it would be a keeper.

I had considered that it might be an insect. Obviously it's not a dead pixel since it moves, but I noticed it immediately upon taking the screen out of the box and setting it up. So if there's an insect in there he's been there since the factory, and he moves very, very slowly and is very, very small (almost exactly the size of one pixel - I had a real fruit fly buzzing around the screen last night and he was at least an order of magnitude larger). I wonder if there could be a dust particle inside the screen that is somehow getting moved around by electrical forces at play on the panel?

EDIT: Anyway, I processed an exchange with Amazon last night, so I will be giving the Viewsonic another go.

Hello ViewSonic 2770 Club,

I share the same internal Samsung panel in my monitor the QNIX QX2710 that the owners of the SyncMaster S27A850D, S27A850T, S27B970D do, as well as the ViewSonic VP2770-LED and Asus PB278Q; the Samsung PLS LTM270DL02. If you have any of these monitors I'm very interested in comparing and contrasting the various EDIDs for these monitors. The easiest way to share this information is to Save your EDID from EDID Manager and post it here for everyones possible use..... http://www.extron.com/product/software.aspx?id=edidmanager Free Download Link from company website. I am providing mine (maybe most people don't care) for the sake of a complete post.

HYO049B.zip 0k .zip file
You will have to compress the bin in a zip file before overclock.net will accept the attachment.

P.S. Tuba do you have every variant of this montior? You are posting pics on every club that you do infact own these monitors plus youtube.... You guys own a computer store or something? How many monitors do you have? Why so many with this PLS panel? Just curious. I'm asking everyone for EDIDs by the way I'll come back and post findings trying to learn EDIDs and need examples...... If there is anything significant to report.....
