I'm just not sure which way they measure it. The resolution is 33% higher in each dimension, but the total pixel count is 78% higher. I'll see if I can find the posts in the BF4 thread about it.

Edit:
Some quick math and the testing done by Bit-tech would imply that the resolution scale is only applied to 1 dimension. They show that using 150% resolution scale cuts performance in half, which is what you would expect if you have doubled the number of pixels, and 150% applied to each dimension would be just over double the number of pixels (2.25 to be exact).

http://www.bit-tech.net/hardware/graphics/2013/11/27/battlefield-4-performance-analysis/7

They also say "At 200 percent, the cards are effectively running at 4K" and 200% of 1920 would be 3840, or the 4K horizontal resolution.



On a different note, does anyone know what kind of offer excellentcastle usually accepts for his ultimate perfect pixel monitor, if any?

Yes i believe he does take them ...make him a sensible offer and see what happens...i do not know of a figure to give him however i have noted that other members have made him offers in the past and he as accepted them thumb.gif

Getting a bit tired of these eBay sellers...(even the ones with high rep).
I asked about the newer model - and they said I should go for the pixel perfect model, when they don't have any true10 perfect pixel models from their shops....

Here is one of his for the Ultimate, it has a make offer option, storewithstory also has an offer option and is slightly cheaper to start I would start with $320, go from there.

Annnnnd as I say that - I hear back from the seller "red-cap" that has the True10 one - looking for more details, I'll confirm when I know - might buy from him. Seems more "personal" vs the other sellers.

If you got a so called glossy for the lower prices, $300 range, its most likely not glossy but a glass over a matte or glossy panel. The Qnix that are true glossy can be had for $600 to $700.

Hello, thank you for your purchase.

This message regards to the purchase you made for the monitor.
We have been having many trouble going through the monitor for Quality check due to so many orders.
I have returned many monitors to the manufacturer and will be getting restocked tomorrow. Your time waiting for this delay is very much appreciated.

I hope you can kindly understand that we are trying our best to serve best customer service as well as the best quality product.

The shipment will be made right away from tomorrow in order. We have entered the tracking number for your purchase, to keep the transactions in order received. This has not been shipped out yet.

If you’d like to cancel the transaction, we will do that for you right away!
I am truly sorry about the late update of this transaction.
Thank you so much.

Yours sincerely

I ordered Sunday and just got this message from dream seller...Sigh

I am kind of worried although I do not wanna cancel my transaction just yet. I emailed him back stating my concern and asked for my panel to be double checked for quality. (Fingers crossed).. I also asked if it would actually be sent tomorrow as I've seen other receive this same message.

Trust me, many are just as confused as to glossy, glass, tempered etc etc. I am getting the impression from what I have been reading that the $300 ones are not true glossy panels, if I find out I am wrong, I will update. If you look on ebay you can see glossy ones at the much higher prices. Does your $300 one also have the multiple connection options?

Ok that's just confusing. It seems like the same display i have is now $700. Mine is definitely glossy. Is it just the qnix? is there any other 1440 glossy i can get for $300?
