Am I the only one a bit confused regarding the ebay sellers statements as follows:

"DVI-D required"

Shouldn´t a DVI-I work just aswell, aslong as it´s a DUAL LINK? tongue.gif

Technically DVI-I is DVI-D, just with extra analogue inputs.

But yes, it can be confusing.

Yeah, Im fully aware of the difference between DVI-D/DVI-I. But as the majority of the sellers refer to it as "DVI-D" like they were hinting at the digital standard DVI-D instead of DVI DUAL LINK. But I guess they just lack the technical understanding? smile.gif

What is the consensus on overclockability + quality on these newer panels? I basically want DP + 120 Hz + no dead pixels + accurate colour/colours that don't make my eyes bleed. I would also want it to be matte. Which one is right for me?

Yes either or should work.

You can't get DisplayPort +120hz right now, in any flavour.

Bummer. Whats the reason for no DP + 120hz? Bandwidth? Also, ignoring DP, which one is best for colour, 120hz and no dead pixels?

Semantics aside (there aren't any 120hz monitors), the only monitors capable of overclocking to 120hz are dual-link DVI only. None of the DisplayPort models can overclock.

It's a gamble and you can't guarantee any of that unless you specifically coordinate with a seller that can hand select a monitor and you'll probably pay a decent amount more than the lowest price.

Got mine today. The idiot sent me the regular model even though i payed for the DP model with HDMI DVI DP. Its flawless though, no dead pixels and no backlight bleed.
I guess i should just keep it, try to get the rest of my money back. (Apparently there is no way this screen would have worked with my laptop anyways)
