[Official] The Qnix/X-Star 1440p Monitor Club - Page 1618

post #16171 of 25888
Sorry to veer you guys off topic but i have a question.

I just got offered a used LG-27EA83R-D for $400 CDN (cash)
-3 weeks old, includes reciept for the rest of the 3 year warranty.
-i'll be able to test for dead pixels and bleeding when i buy.

For $400 CDN do you guys think it'll be worth it over any of the $300-350 USD korean monitors? (assuming there are no problems with it)

Only if you check for LED PWM Dimming (read about the side effects) with a cellphone (BenQ video with examples) or with this test since the non R versions either uses an insultingly low 130hz frequency or is PWM free. Super low frequencies cause obvious flicker when viewing certain colors and increase motion blur. Also the launch non R 27EA83D's had really high input lag (30ms), which LG later fixed, and I bet that the first 27EA83R-D's also had really high input lag and used PWM.

A PWM free 27EA83R-D for 400$ is a good deal, but multi-input monitors can't overclock and you should check LG Canada's warranty on the LG site since the warranty might not be transferable.

Taking the bezel off is a total piece of cake.

I watched those videos in the OP and it looks pretty easy, but it also looks like the LED strip is one piece without any obvious plugs or anything that may be loose. So unless it is just misaligned, or blocked by something, I don't know if there is anything I can fix.

Dream-seller already approved a return for refund or replacement, so I guess I'll just do that. Now to decide whether to ask him to replace it for the $279 price, or go somewhere else for an ultimate perfect pixel.

For mine?

The listing has actually ended: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/171236516279?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649

Bought it for £216.17, free shipping on monday, but hasn't shipped yet.

Dammit, apaprently you didn't mean me, oh well.

Still interesting to find that it ended early, it was supposed to end in april?

Top dog! might have to go for this deal as well. was shipping included?

you know, i never thought to ask.. how well will a GTX 770 hold up at 1440p? my main reason for wanting a monitor with is a scaler so i can bump down to 1080 if needed.
