So are there any retailers that REALLY guarantee perfect pixel? I want to get another. I should have bought 2 when I got my first for $260! The only problem with my first is 1 green stuck pixel

Using a monitor driver all your Games will see your resolutions and refresh rates!...also if a game is limited to pacific refresh rate say for example 75hz as max!..then nothing will make it see a higher refresh rate be it CRU or NVCP!..also if you are using CRU with Nvidia geforce experience still installed it will be conflicting with CRU EDID overrides even though you will see 120hz or 96z or what ever custom resolution you applied in CRU and now see displayed in NVCP under native resolution!...However it will not always been seen by windows...and if windows is not seeing it neither will your games!
The only solution ToasyX could come up with allowing CRU EDID overrides to work correctly and not conflict with Nvidia Geforce Experance or indeed Samsung Magician was to uninstall Nvidia Geforce Experience and samsung Magician .. " which i can report works fine and windows always can see your custom resolution made in CRU"...or keep them installed and import the blank-extension.dat into CRU when making your custom resolutions!.. However this is far from perfect and windows on many occasions will still refuse to see your custom resolutions as conflicts still exist!...AIso i am only trying to help you but believe me if you are using CRU EDID overrides and you still have Nvidia Geforce Experience installed and have not even imported blank-extension.dat then windows will not 100% of the times be seeing your custom refresh rate even if NVCP reports it is working!..however using a monitor driver and NVCP to create your custom resolutions all of your games will see your custom profiles all of the time!...Using CRU you will think everything is working just fine when you looking into NVCP and see your custom refresh rate sitting there!...but it is not being seen by windows!..And if windows is not seeing it then your games will not be seeing it!

Edit:- This picture below was also taken with the blank-extension.dat imported into CRU!

Example:-




Using my monitor driver file and using NVCP to create our custom resolutions we have over come this problem and now all of us Nvidia users do not have any more of the above problems!...And we now have no conflicts what so ever and we do not have to uninstall Nvidia Geforce Experance anymore or Samsung Magician if installed or any other software that might conflict with EDID overrides....And Also the OP needs updating to reflect this!

yup as linked by lawson:

Seller confirmed there are 0 dead pixels. Problem is price they want $370 - basically $100 more than other sellers...anyone got any suggestions?
I'm still waiting for someone to get back to me on this:

Well the question is, and it's one that is hard to find a good answer for, is it resolution scaling or pixel scaling? Because you are right that 1440p has 78% more pixels, but the resolution is only 33% higher (not 25% like I said earlier). I've been told in the BF4 thread that the scale is for resolution, which would make 33% the right number for testing 1440p, but I've never tested it personally to see.

I just worked a little in photoshop and I must say, the monitor is more then good enough for photoshop and illustrator.

No problems so far! loving it smile.gif

My display looked GREAT then I ran a i1 Display Pro on it and now it is AMAZING for both gaming and photo editing. thumb.gif

Looking for one with no dead pixels on eBay - I wish the sellers responded faster frown.gif
(Not up for paying $150-100 more for one via a seller that doesn't respond)

Hey Lawson I noticed your handy with mod tools, so If I took a jigsaw with bi-metal blade (steel base) and cut appx 50% (more or less?) off the legs (see pic), with about the same footprint as your newer modded base, do you think it would be as stable as yours or close to it? Won't be as pretty, but will it be satisfactory in your opinion? Or not any better than the stock base? ... I have no immediate plans to use a fully raised portrait mode, which is maybe why they made the base so big in the 1st place redface.gif
