Hopefully all go well.

I am going to use it replace my Hazro HZ27WC.

I also ordered a "better" DVI cable.
I ordered a DVI-D Dual Link cable from thatcable.com. They make good quality cables for a reasonable price. I ordered some HDMI cables 2 years ago and they worked great.

Here is direct link: http://www.thatcable.com/product/Loops-DVI-D-Male-to-DVI-D-Male-Video-Cable-Lead-Dual-Link
For those interested and find Monoprice's shipping fee to high (at least to Europe).

This is the first I see a company listing supported resolutions which are higher than Full HD or similar.
Sweet..I hope you get a great monitor..I was at monoprice's warehouse last Thursday..That place is pretty dang big..My shipping from them is like $5 for overnight..I am gonna buy some cables tomorrow cause my stock ones wont screw into the monitor lol..But a old pair will so i know its the cable..O well i still get 120hz on a jimmy rigged none screwed in cable..thumb.gif

I'm still surprised DVI cable quality matters. After I changed mine to higher quality ones, I could do 120hz without any flickering.

I'm telling you the stock ones will plug in smile.gif you just need a small flat head screwdriver. I couldn't even get my aftermarket cables to screw in without one.

For me (Netherlands) shipping from Monoprice is only 'profitable' if I order a lot more. They use FedEx and paying ~30 USD for shipping (for a single cable) is not acceptable.

I did order from Monoprice in the past, however I needed many cables back than and than the total costs of all the cables (including FedEx shipping) was still cheaper than purchasing those same cables in the Netherlands. If I remeber correctly it saved me back than about 70% of the price which I would have to pay in my own country! Absurd!

I needed a different cables anyways, because of the distance my PC is at. Haha. So I went for 3 meters.

Thing with Monoprice they increase the shipping rates as you increase the Qty of cables even if you add 1. mad.gif

I also ordered 2 to make the cost per cable seem more reasonable. I got there 6ft and 10ft cable. Which has still not arrived. I wonder if I can track it.

Just make sure what you set it to is something that works for you! Not what should be right according to lagom or according to anyone else. Make sure you enjoy your picture and you will be happy wink.gif

Colour Calibration involves a lot more than setting the brightness and contrast ratios. Even though you can use CCC or NVCP to adjust RGB, Hue and Saturation you're still doing it by eye and using it to judge what RGB should look like.

Using a colorimeter you're allowing the software to display various shades of colours which the colorimeter then reports back what it's currently seeing. If it doesn't match with the industry standard values the software will then adjust RGB, luminence, gamma etc to bring it to what it should be. The output from this is a ICC/ICM profile which is unique to your panel.

P.S Where abouts in Manchester are you from?
