And what should I do to correct this or maybe just ship it back. Thanks


I wouldn´t even start messing with that. Send it back.

That looks like a return to me, a bad screen perhaps.

You sure about that? I have an XFX passive 5450 512MB in my server box and it runs this display fine (at least I saw the machines BIOS when I hooked it up during testing when I couldn't get an image off my main rig...cable not attached tightly enough was the issue)

Call me paranoid but once i noticed it i just cant stop thinking about it.



the last pic pretty much shows how large the gap is if you wish to compare. I've already seen people with the same problem here.
I do understand that there's supposed to be a black outline around the edges but i doubt its supposed to be this large(~ 2mm).
Anyway, can a n00b tinker such as myself fix it easily?

All in all I can highly recommend excellentcastle for shipping time, communication and packaging.

Also got a new DVI-D cable today (Clicktronic), unfortunately my GTX680 is RMA'ed so I´m stuck with a 5450 which won´t run the monitor and is noisy as hell.

That's not bad at all. According to this: http://www.toldpriser.dk/toldberegner i would have to pay around 500 DKK for customs and a 160 DKK from shipping. By buying a 1770 DKK (309$) Display.


EDIT: Also that's 60 euro for one meter? Thats insane, you might as well have bought this: http://www.av-cables.dk/dvi-d-kabler/clicktronic-dvi-d-dual-link-kabel-1-m.html

Also when choosing a cable, how do you know which Dvi - D that's good?
For example here: http://www.av-cables.dk/dvi-d-kabler/ (Danish site i know, bare with that) There are tons of different cables, at different price ranges. How do i know which is better?

In my extremely brief experience with gaming at 1080p on this thing, it looked blurry and bad. Another thing you might want to try is 2560x1080 and then you can pretend you have one of those $650 21:9 displays. You'll have black bars top and bottom, but it will avoid any scaling artifacts as all the pixels being used are 1:1 with the source image.

@Loltune: Definitely box it back up and start the return/exchange process. That is way past what a reasonable person would be expected to accept in a brand new monitor. Ask the seller to test the new one before sending it.

I didn´t pay that amount. I payed 220 kr including shipping for 2m from the exact site you´re linking too smile.gif Look at the AWG to see how thick the cable is.

Well this also looks to be related to panel play and if so he could possibly fix it himself by just holding the thing up side down and jerking it downwards. Or open it up for the tape mod where you essentially make the protrusions larger that the panel rests on...

Personally, I would be trying everything possible before I were to ship the damn thing back to the other side of the planet even if I knew for certain I would be receiving a better one in return.
