Thank you. That was the info i needed.

HDMI and DVI use the same exact picture signaling method. The only difference is that HDMI can also carry an audio stream.

On paper an HDMI -> DVI Dual-Link cable should be capable of powering this monitor. I'm asking if anybody else (here) has tried this on-paper approach first.

(lost the quote somehow)
Sorry i thought you were asking if you could use a DVI to a HDMI cable for this monitor..

6) Do you know if the panel is 6 or 8 bit? I heard it may have been undeclared by Samsung and is a form of e-ips?
7)I don't like seeing my reflection I suppose so that means i should go matte (semi-gloss) but does it take away from color, contrast, etc.?
8)How noticeable is graininess with the matte vs gloss if you remember and I will be sitting about 1.5 feet away.
Here is what i noticed..My glossy look more crisp and vibrant when i a dark room..The letters of text were sharper also..But The glare during the day killed it for me..Also blacks seemed more dark grey on glossy cause there was always a reflection..On my matte its not grainy at all i would say its perfect..But text just does not look as crisp in my opinion..And i sit about 1.5 to 2 feet away also..

The monitors use a true 8-bit panel. No FRC or crap like that.

Finally got around to taking the stands out. One of my monitors was easy, like 5 minutes. The other, torque was sooo high on the screws...took me forever to get them out.

At least you're in Denmark so the Memorial Day holiday doesn't apply to you... I have to wait until Tuesday for my monitor...mad.gif

I'll be testing for BLB and dead/stuck pixels as soon as I receive it

Question for everyone else:
What pixel clock is required to run 96 and 120hz? Apparently GPU scaling doesn't work beyond 363.63mhz on 5000 series AMD video cards.

Also does non-GPU scaling mean that I can't run games on a lower resolution or just that it won't follow aspect ratio/go full screen?

Got mine set up. Wow. 120 Hz and color profile. 1 dead pixel. Very impressive.
