Hey man - did you go ahead with the True10? I just ordered one. The way I see it, is that if it frame skips at 75hz (which is what it is advertised to run at), then it is not being sold as advertised, and the seller should pay for returns...

What would you guys say about this one? ik it's op but i don't want to be seeing dead pixels on my screen or extreme bleed .

it's funny how perfect pixel is not perfect any more it can be 0-1 pixel/stuck pixel.

It never was a guarantee of no pixel defects. Hence why I think it's stupid.

Actually, I did get my True10 to OC at 120hz using the driver/Nvidia method rather than the CRU method. Played games until 4 AM and didn't notice any framedrops, so either Nvidia control panel is lying to me, thus creating a placebo effect in which I actually perceive things being smoother, or it actually worked. I didn't run it through the frameskip test yet; I'll try that when I get home and double check things, too.

So I didn't get any hits on the stand question, and I did check out the monoprice stands. The issue with those is that the arm isn't going to extend out far enough to actually work with my desk. Has anyone tried a free standing mount, or something like this?

I'd contend that the best point about these monitors are that they're cheap. The overclocking is a bonus. Having probably owned one of the best overclocking monitors (Catleap 2B), for one of the longest periods of time (just about 2 years), I have to say that overclocking isn't the reason why I enjoy the monitor so much. Keeping the overclock alive through driver updates, rehacking and all, dealing with breaking HDCP... I have to say that it's not all peaches and cream. And I don't have to deal with the finicky pixel clock settings to optimize against image retention, gamma shifts, tinting and darkening images. Hence why I say overrated. Not that overclocking is worthless (far from it, it's amazing that you can overclock it) just that I think people value it more than it's actually worth.

75hz might work at a lower resolution; there are a lot of monitors (including my Dell U2312hm/U2311h) have monitor modes that support higher refresh rates, but at a lower resolution. If someone still has a True10, it might be worth testing that.

That kind of defeats the object of buying a 2560x1440 monitor. If I wanted a 1080 monitor that ran at 75hz, then that's what I would have bought teaching.gif

I messed up buying the True10, plain and simple - and it's gonna cost me about £100 to return it...

unless someone here wants to buy a True10 for about £220?? It's pixel perfect!

Yeah. It does, but it also means that a seller would not be falsely advertising if he stated the True10 was capable 75hz refresh either :-/

I meant more like, in hindsight, because it was mentioned a couple of times.

Also I didn't mean to say you should read the entire topic but I more like referred to it as the proof you needed.

Anyway, you should be able to decline the monitor and get a refund, you might also want to consider selling it yourself. There is always someone who wants its straight away and isn't willing to wait on a shipment from Korea. At a sell/buy community site where I am from they usually don't last around a day.

Yeah good point! Kind of sneaky, though if they were doing that!

Damnit, if only they had been a bit slower in dispatching... they dispatched about 1 hour after I paid!

Probably keen to get rid of them ninja.gif
