However with these Korean monitors when they use it they use a very low frequency version and it will cause flickering I believe.

NCX did a review and his didnt have any.....Overclock.ru Dead reviewed the same brand and model and his had it..at 160Hz....very very low.

My Asus is going back because of the PWM dimming, I was warned about it, so I knew it was there. I have never had a monitor cause headaches from it, but the Asus does.

The sellers don't build 'em, they're only resellers. I doubt they do much more than order them and have them shipped. Even ipsledmonitors.com don't source their own monitors. The only company that sells these "cheap" monitors and sources the monitors themselves (and thus has knowledge of the monitors and leverage on the manufacturer to improve quality) is overlord computers. The rest? Resellers.

And so the resellers can only advertise what the manufacturer tells them - how do they know better?

Appreciate that u gave a review when u had a family crisis. Hope ur son is ok

1 - The colors are pretty close but the panel seems to be more uniform overall. The colors and blacks are REALLY nice on the True10. I sure do hope they make a single DVI True10. I'd snatch it up it in a moment. There is no bluring or ghosting and even at 120hz, there was no gamma shift.

2 - Yes, I got it from excellentcastle and I am going to try to return it with a pic of the Xbox artifacts wink.gif


It's a shame really, this is a GORGEOUS monitor both on the outside and colors, blacks, uniformity etc. And seriously, Xbox 360 looks fantastic on it even at 720p.

Sorry, with family stuff, it's hard to keep up on the thread. Thanks for the rep on those who gave it. Any other questions on the True10? I am going to test the Overlord Tempest and then decide between that and my Qnix glossy. thumb.gif

Did you get a picture (photograph) while doing the frameskipping test?

It didn't need to. I could see it write two frames, skip one, rinse and repeat just from my own eye sight on 75, 96 and 120hz. It's too bad, because besides that, like I said, the image in desktop and games in phenomenal. mad.gif

Compared to my Qnix Glossy, the True10 image looks a tad sharper.

You will want to keep the Tempest, then sell me the glossy Qnix. biggrin.gif

Interesting.

No gamma shift even while overclocked - that indicates that the gamma shift/uniformity issues/tinting/image retention issues when overclocked are a function of the panel itself, and not the electronics (scalar/PCB). So cable quality will do nothing to improve those issues. Seems like the IPS panels in the older Catleaps/Overlord monitors can handle high pixel clocks better than the PLS panels.

Really want to know how much input lag it has. If it's barely more than the single input versions then I'm going to pull the trigger next month.

Everything was perfectly fine @ 96hz, right ?

My only real complaint so far is the power LED being on the front and not the bottom.

Well, define "perfectly fine @ 96hz" -- Everything looks gorgeous at 96hz but it's skipping frames. Exact same at 120hz. Gorgeous still/moving images but frame skipping.

I would say, if you want a panel for desktop use and 60hz gaming, this is a fantastic monitor. If you want the best overclocking gaming monitor, this isn't it.

On input lag, I can already tell, even without measuring, the input lag is greater than my Qnix glossy. It feels like my old 60hz Yamakasi Catleap on vsync. It's not horrible but for me, who's been testing SO much the past 6 months, I can feel it a bit.
