If anyone wants to see what it takes to run 3 of these monitor I put together a benchmark & scaling thread of 7680x1440 with GK110.

Seems like the burn-in marks disappear when playing games. But when I shut down my monitor for 10hrs and open it again, the burn-in marks are again visible? This cycle just repeats itself. I'm just concerned about this behaviour. I'm thinking of putting a flashing black-white screen for 10-15 hours and see will it help.

These monitors are hdcp compliant. However if you patched your drivers to overclock your monitor, this breaks hdcp.

Do your displays flicker as if they're changing mode when you launch CS? When using windowed mode it should be totally seamless with no mode changes, and therefore the game has to be using whatever Windows is using. How are you verifying that CS is not at the correct refresh rate?

Is it patching the drivers or running testmode that breaks HDCP? I think neither AMD nor Nvidia cards need testmode anymore.

My question is basically... If I get them from IPSledmonitors would their warranty, or the Squaretradewarranty be a better bet in the event of dead pixel's and such? I did notice squaretrade doesnt cover past the manf. warranty outlines for it but didnt seem to find them yet... Worried about how long that site will be around with their warranty as well. Newegg seems about the same, plus reliable, and can also charge you a restock fee of like 50$ for them, but i'm not sure how they would deal with pixel issues.

If neither would really cover with warranty, not sure what use the warranty would have aside from just overal failing...

Or...Perhaps adding the "accidental+drops+spills coverage" would be worth the extra 25$ from Squaretrade in the event of pixel issues the "Opps" I dropped it story? lol..



Thanks guys!

Still looking for any tips on this, wanna order them tommorow smile.gif Read a ton in here and other places but just wanna run it passed people to see what they think for sure.

I am only praying they haven't been through my bank account (can't access it right now to check, online banking down atm) and being thankful I used my CC rather than a direct withdrawal.

This doesn't make much sense if you used paypal. Dream-seller can't see your credit card #. Also do you think a seller with 10,000 ebay sales and a 99% feedback is going to bother scamming one person out of $3000?

edit:

Also, all the people spazzing out when they don't get a response the same day (over a weekend), or their tracking updates change. Calm down.

These are Korean import monitors. Part of the reason they don't cost $600 is because they are not being sold buy a multi-billion dollar corp that has global call centers and reps waiting on you.

I know everyone values safety in this investment. ~$300 is a lot of coin to put down on a monitor. However, I think newegg is the worst purchasing option for these monitors. Restock fee, not even sold by newegg, increased price, and the biggest thing that everyone is overlooking: "30 day return policy." I highly doubt you will be able to pull any kind of warranty through a newegg sale, so why pay the premium?

Now on to ipsledmonitors.com... another reseller who is pocketing the extra money they charge for their monitors (even more than newegg does), but they are the same as the ones on ebay. Who are these guys? How long are they going to be around for (long enough to honor the warranty they sell)?

To be blunt, this thread wouldn't exist and none of us would be here if purchasing directly from ebay wasn't 'safe' or gave us all faulty monitors. My recommendation, and this goes to anyone viewing this thread, is to buy from an ebay seller and then (if you are worried) purchase a squaretrade warranty. It is proven to work, will ship in the same amount of time, and be cheaper than buying from ipsledmonitors.com

The value (performance/price) of this monitor drops as the price is increased over that of ebay. If you can spend ~$400 for a Qnix, I suggest you just save up for a dell. They often go on sale on deal websites

Dell monitors can't overclock to 120hz.

In fact the best thing about these Korean monitors is the potential for 120hz overclock.

True, but I was more making a point of trying to keep the price as low on these as possible is what this is all about. That is why most buy directly at the source (sort of) in SK
