Yeah that's why I get everything shipped to work (that and security). As the box isn't much larger than the display itself I can actually get this thing home on the train instead of dropping $20 on a cab.

Updated my post to explain the Overclock.ru image

This is a compilation of macro pictures of monitors pixels to show the effect of different kinds of coatings (glossy, glass and the various matte coatings). The Dell U2711 uses the most aggressive (thickest) matte/anti-glare (AG) coating while the 27Q LED-P is glossy which is why the pixels look so much clearer. Aggressive AG is the most common type of coating, especially on IPS.

http://www.overclockers.ru/images/lab/2013/05/02/1/23_kristaleffect_big.jpg

The following AH-IPS and PLS have semi-glossy coating (lightest matte coating) Q2710, EA244WMi, U2713H, U2413H, U2713HM, VP2770, PB278Q, S27A850D and S24A850D

I purchased this about 2-3 weeks ago so you might get one within that time frame too. I just called them and they said that the sender "PAYS FOR THE FREIGHT" and you have to pay for Customs. I find this a bit absurd.... mad.gif

Hmm.. I got mine last Friday. Did the Ebay listing say free shipping? I ordered the glossy and it said free shipping (paid $304). There shouldnt be any customs charges as the US has a free trade agreement with South Korea.

I ordered mine from Hulu Star as well and asked him to mark as gift value at $200.00. I didn't get charged from customs.Free trade agreement applies to only products that are made, produced and assembled in Korea or USA won't get charged taxes. Got to find out if the product was made and assembled in korea. Oh and mines was delivered by DHL Maybe its a UPS thing..... I never liked those brown guys anyway

I ordered from Hulustar. I'm in the US. I told him to mark full value and NOT to mark it as a gift. DHL delivered it and I signed for it without fuss or fees.

Well, I told them that and they were like "Your sender didn't pay for the Customs, only the shipping"

found something nice. This monitor can run 120hz on my #2 port of my GTX570 but will only get about 108hz on the #1 port. Not sure what that is all about but if some of you guys are close to 120 but can't quite get it it may be a shot in the dark.

I think that's nothing new but I'm sure you patched the drivers so that somehow gave the DVI-I port on your GPU more bandwidth by unlocking it.
