I've never seen 1440p or 27" before so this looks huge. But I'm loving the extra real estate.

The monitor itself:

Love the coating, coming from glossy the lack of reflections is brilliant.

Minimal BLB. No dead/stuck pixels.

OCing: stock cable gives me loads of red lines at 120Hz, but none at 96Hz. I'll try in between later.

First monitor above 60Hz too, so I immediately noticed the smoother mouse movement. The colours dimmed too much at 96Hz though so I'm reverting to 120Hz for the time being. I ran the windows calibration tool as there was way too much red coming through, but that's fixed so I have neutralish grays.
My school will let me borrow their Xrite Design once I go back so I'll calibrate at various levels and report back.

SVP is too much for my hardware though, my 1055T and HD7770 can't handle it. The few seconds that did work were undoubtedly much smoother though.


Overall I'm really happy with this, shame it won't do the full 120hz though.

Basically the same situation for me, first 27", first 1440P, first over 60hz. Very nice stuff, enjoy!

This is my X-Star beside my old 24" HP monitor. I need to get better pics though.

And I really need a second one. (no what you see on it, is not backlight bleed, it's just the wallpaper and the camera)

But you won't be able to place 2 of them next to eachother then since the foot is quite big smile.gif
Thanks for the info, I have a 2nd on order.

No, I'm talking about those 120Hz TVs or like 200/400Hz whatever they're advertising with are in fact only doing motion interpolation like SVP does to make things look smoother but sacrificing quality.
There's a lot of discussion about motion interpolation on the net and it has been around since ages but noone used it since it's pretty bad and they haven't even had the ressources back then.
I don't know why this is starting to get a thing right now, many complain that on some TVs you can't even turn that off.
Whatever, if it feels better for you then it shouldn't be my concern, I'd just like you to compare between the two pictures.

Oh and I've been running mine on 96Hz since like 3 months now and haven't had any problems. I haven't experience image persistance at all in the last 2 months.

Is there a list with what TV's are fake 120hz or which are real?

I may be wrong, but I don't think any tv's are real, as in, they won't accept a 120hz input signal.

Just google for 120Hz TV not really 120Hz or something like that.

As said before, if you want to enjoy movies then get yourself a plasma as LCD is a ****ty technology for moving pictures.

Interesting and informative but, yeah, not the place.

Ok I have a more relevant question--who has bought a unit from dreamseller for under 300 that was in relatively great shape? Anyone?
