No one else has theirs mounted vertically? One mounted vertically may not pose an issue but with the mounting holes being a couple inches left/right of center once you flip it vertically, I'd imagine a triple mounted setup might be problematic if you're trying to squeeze them together bezel to bezel.

Plenty of people have mounted these vertical in surround........you just never hear from them again. Plus just debezel the monitor, use a good aftermarket stand, bypass the power connectors to run 12v power directly off your PC power supply and call it a day. thumb.gif

Well I was some would respond lol. The idea of debezeling these may appeal to me one day but not at first. I'm sure some have three of these mounted in an eyefinity setup without going to such extremes. I just want to know how they did it/what mount they used. I may be worrying for nothing and it may mount just fine with a traditional triple mount stand, but if I can get some assurances first that would be good.

I've found my stand lol. I've been looking at getting a new chair/desk in addition to the triple monitor stand...

I still have to go into nvcp and manually change the res. I actually don't need cru, works just with nvcp.

Just doing it in the NV cp didn't make it show up in windows settings and didn't show up in the ufotest. Seems to be working good now. I can't say I notice any issues when running 120hz as far as color shift out weird lines. Happy about that. I still disable it when not gaming though.

From here it seems like the import duty for Korean Monitors is 0%, and it just includes the standard VAT.

Can anybody from the UK confirm this?

Cheers

There is some information (and a calculator) about this in the OP under "Monitor Fixes, Support, Help", in the section titled "VAT, Fees, Taxes by Country (Click to hide)"

Hey man, seen you ask a few times, only issue i have had with the vesa mounts is the holes on the monitor for the vesa mount seem a little shallow, i have seen a few others have this issue as well, meaning the screws only go say 2/3rds of the way in. I have used 2 washers on each screw to fill in the gap with no issues so far. I tried using a vesa mount desk clamp originally but the whole thing was dipping and i didn't feel it was safe, replaced it with a philips stand, it rotates and lowers and does all that cool stuff, but it is only for a 24 inch monitor and doesn't support the weight properly, it just sits in the lowest position and i dont use it in portrait mode anyway, so make sure you get a strong stand, and have a few washers handy would be my advice.
I'm back baby!!!

What color profile you guys using at 120hz? I have tried several and just can't get it right.

If I go to Control Panel - Hardware 0 Display - and Calibrate through Windows - I can get it just right but there is no way to save this ICC creation so that I can enforce it through colour keeper... :/ or is there?

Ya I saw the posts about the shallow screw holes. So you haven't tried mounting it vertically in an eyefinity/surround setup then? That's my concern as trying to line up three monitors as close/even as possible when each stand arm is attached a good two inches to the left/right of center(depending on which way you flipped the monitor) could prove problematic. Horizontally there wouldn't be an issue as the vesa mounts are centered for that.

Thank you for the note about the desk clamp stand. I was looking at one on Amazon and it seemed to get pretty good reviews while looking pretty sturdy. Wonder why those people had less issues. Did you have enough space on your desk's lip for a good "clamping"? Do you think it could've been the quality of the stand you bought? Getting a triple monitor stand that only has a single base that sits on the desk seems to me would require one heavy base to support the weight. That or would require you bolt it to the desk.
