30" Inch Yamakasi 300 Sparta 2560x1600 S-IPS Monitor - Page 2  

post #11 of 246
its tempered glass so its glossy screen?? i like to see some pics. any dust between glass?
does this mean that the panel will look clear like, say, the iMac / Cinema 27 displays without AG coating... or does this just mean that those crazy Koreas have taken a bog-standard 30" panel with AG and stuck a sheet of glass over the front of it to make it look pretty?

too bad its not led, only lcd. more heat and more power.

Yes, it is tempered glass and the screen is glossy-no dust between glass what so ever. I think it looks just as good as Apples Cinema displays or the panels for Imacs-I couldn't see any difference.

Yea, I didn't know it was LCD until after I ordered it-conflicting descriptions everywhere. But it gives off a little heat and it a little more power-but it is a VERY nice unit.

I am VERY satisfied with it.

Here's some info on this monitor vs the popular monitors that everyone buys.
The New 30inch and above monitors are LCD. I have no info on the panel if it is the same as the Apple cinema panel that we all have in the 27inch version monitors for catlpea,yamakasi and crossover.

Your going to lose picutre quality and sharpness on a LCD monitor vs a LED monitor. The 27 inch versions have the LED technology and include the apple cinema display panel.

Quoted from a website:

"LCD stands for “liquid crystal display” and technically, both LED and LCD TVs are liquid crystal displays. The basic technology is the same in that both television types have two layers of polarized glass through which the liquid crystals both block and pass light. So really, LED TVs are a subset of LCD TVs.

LED, which stands for “light emitting diodes,” differs from general LCD TVs in that LCDs use fluorescent lights while LEDs use those light emitting diodes. Also, the placement of the lights on an LED TV can differ. The fluorescent lights in an LCD TV are always behind the screen. On an LED TV, the light emitting diodes can be placed either behind the screen or around its edges. The difference in lights and in lighting placement has generally meant that LED TVs can be thinner than LCDs, although this is starting to change. It has also meant that LED TVs run with greater energy efficiency and can provide a clearer, better picture than the general LCD TVs.

LED TVs provide a better picture for two basic reasons. First, LED TVs work with a color wheel or distinct RGB-colored lights (red, green, blue) to produce more realistic and sharper colors. Second, light emitting diodes can be dimmed. The dimming capability on the back lighting in an LED TV allows the picture to display with a truer black by darkening the lights and blocking more light from passing through the panel. This capability is not present on edge-lit LED TVs; however, edge-lit LED TVs can display a truer white than the fluorescent LED TVs.

Because all these LCD TVs are thin-screen, each has particular angle-viewing and anti-glare issues. The backlit TVs provide better, cleaner angle viewing than the edge-lit LED TV. However, the backlit LED TV will usually have better angle viewing than the standard LCD TV. Both LED and LCD TVs have good reputations for their playback and gaming quality."






Hope this helps.

Looks like both of those articles refer to TV's, not computer monitors. Thank you for posting them though smile.gif

Those reference TV's. Some of their points do not actually apply to monitors - specifically quality of whites (consumer LED monitors have inferior whites, in general), dimmability and peak brightness (CCFL can dim perfectly fine), and colour quality (CCFL has better colour quality in general than WLED monitors, of which the vast majority of computer monitors are).

I would not trust either of those two sources in terms of their opinions on LED monitors.

I really wish i had the finances to justify having one of these.

Personaly for gaming i would preffer standard 1080p with 120hz, but for desktop/art (which i do digitaly) it would be simply amazing to have 1600p or 1440p.. but unfourtunately im just too damn poor frown.gif If i could have it my way i would have the 1600p in front of me with the 1080p 120hz stacked on top (since i tend to recline and look upwards when gaming anyways) OR some sort of swingable arm for both to switch up the location for each as needed.


such fantasies.

Any comment on input lag and backlight bleed? Seriously considering one of these for gaming, PS, CAD.
