Yup looks like the right one to me. I also bought from GreenSum but I bought the glossy pixel perfect. People say that pixel perfect is a waste of the $20 or so, but I'd disagree, it's good insurance and good for your peace of mind. Got mine over a week ago and noticed I had 40 or so pixels that wouldn't display the green colors and some grays, and GreenSum was quick to allow me to return it, now I just gotta wait til they mail me a replacement.

I can notice the screen getting darker when I put the screen to 120hz, and even with the same ICC profile(asus v3 one) it just doesnt look the same.
Anyone know how to get it to look the same on 120hz than it would on 60/96hz using the same profile?

The only way to help is to reduce your pixel clock somehow. Like using LCD reduced timings.

Does changing the stock DVI cable help reduce burn-in? Getting some burn in on the top right corner @ 80hz with the stock cable!

I just went into detail about this barley even a day ago...

Again let me repeat myself (along with the OP). PIXEL PERFECT DOESN'T MEAN JACK... The sellers pixel policy is what you really wan't to look for if you are worried about returning a monitor if it comes with a few dead pixels.

GREENSUM'S "PIXEL PERFECT" MONITORS ALLOW UP TO 6 DEAD PIXELS!!!

If you scroll down in that listing you have linked you see that this is shown very clearly. My monitor was not labeled "pixel perfect" and yet the seller (accessorieswhole) only allowed up to 3 dead pixels and some do even less (and it was in fact pixel perfect). Even so my monitor was $280 when purchased a few weeks ago while all the "pixel perfect" ones were $50+ more.

It's a marketing gimmick and pretty much the definition of false advertisement.

And if you look over at the non pixel perfect listing you'd see the same image...

Exactly. As I and many others have said over and over again, pixel perfect doesn't mean anything except paying more $. There is a reason that is listed in the start of the FAQ in the OP.

It's 24AWG like the monoprice. My monoprice gives me about 115hz, the BJC i can hit 128hz. YMMV.



Anyone else have recommendations? I currently have the monoprice one, and its very thick and can barely bend wth.gif
