Wrong. And want to know what Hulustar replied with in my case?

Hello

Check normal background.

You can not see. Even paly movie too.

Please take a picture with that.

THanks.

After letting hulustar know how ridiculous that was I too was told that DHL would pick up the monitor. Never did, and no further contact. I've since fixed the BLB by bending the metal frame carefully and replaced the ****ty base with an HP one someone mentioned in this thread. Can't go back to 1080 after 1440.

They definitely shouldn't have lied to you saying they would take it back, but never did. I would say that was their only fault, and a major one.

However, I agree with wrigleyvillain's comments.

If so, how is it?

LV980AA - yep that's it. It's awesome. I just used the screws that came with the LV980AA and mounted it directly to the monitor (after removing the proprietary HP plate thingy) and boom I was done. Looks great, makes the monitor way taller, and I don't have a heart attack if I accidentally bump into my desk anymore. Price is nice too.

Definitely the best monitor stand for the price that I currently know of. I love the way mine looks too, and that it had no HP branding on it. Makes the entire monitor look more legit

I can highly recommend this one as well. It just arrived a couple days ago (don't have my monitor yet still on the way) and it's super sturdy. A little more pricey than the HP one but I personally think it looks cleaner. I threw a different monitor on there to see how it was and there is absolutely no wobble.

For people using the great shurcooL's Refresh Rate Multitool, to check if an overclocked monitor is frame-skipping or not:

There's a much easier, new web-based tool at TestUFO for frame rate skipping checks:
www.testufo.com/#test=frameskipping

For accurate "perfect-VSYNC" frame skipping checks up to 240Hz, use only Chrome (chrome://gpu enabled) or Opera 15+. Internet Explorer 10 can do accurate frame skipping checks up to about 105Hz. FireFox 24+ pre-beta does great frame skipping checks at 60Hz, but starts to degrade as you go higher. Quit all applications, disable tools that accesses disk, and give 100% CPU to the webbrowser. Check your webbrowser's VSYNC support.

You do not need a high speed camera; it works with a standard photographic camera set to a 1/10th second shutter speed. It's very easy to tell if a frame has been skipped, if you see gaps in the resulting photograph. Even an iPhone camera works too!

Yeah someone with a defective unit awhile ago said Hulustar had suggested they kick in the box and blame DHL. None of these guys would prefer to take anything out of their pockets if can be avoided and they are only seemingly "honest" as long as it helps sales/image.

This means no skipping right?

Before everyone starts freaking out i want everyone to know that you must also turn off any secondary monitors that you have attached that are likely at a different refresh rate for this to get accurate readings as well.

Yes there is no skipping since there is no boxes that are being "skipped"
