Seems a little sketchy to me, but don't let my judgement affect yours.

Here's the link:

Be aware that when I ordered glossy from them, I got a glass panel model. Someone else a few pages back removed the panel completely to make it like the glossy model.

U bought this exact model from green-sum? But anyway, how was the quality of the glass model they gave you?

Oh, idk if I posted yet, but I got mine with 0 dead pixels and minor blb in one corner. Paid $280 for X-Star on ebay, arrived on the third day! I have calibrated colors, and overclocked to 96Hz.

As long as your video card has a Dual Link DVI output and cable, you should be able to run it without issue. You might have some trouble if your video card has less than 1GB VRAM. Other than that, you can run a dual monitor setup as long as your video card has two outputs.

What seller did you choose?

I did read many pages about Dream Seller here, searching the forums first. Most were complaints of shipping- which I didn't mind because they have had monsoons on that side of the world. There are many good things said about then here and on other forums. Dream Seller also has many many many positive feedback ratings on just this exact monitor, I feel like I got a dud rather than completely screwed over. I shouldn't have taken a risk on something that has a high likely hood of being defective.
While I can respect that you feel you got 'unlucky' in your dealings, it took me all of 15 minutes to find nearly a dozen posts of people reporting defective monitors from dream-seller and expressing their concerns at his lack of proper support.
As others have said before me, there is a reason that he sells his monitors at such a low price in comparison to the others.

At any rate, I wish you luck in your next purchase; it really is too bad this one didn't work out for you, let's hope the next one is better. smile.gif

I have heard good things about www.ipsledmonitors.com, at least as far as replacing defective ones goes.
Keep us in the loop! thumb.gif

Yes I don't have hard data or possibly even all my facts straight on this but even outside of all the negative experiences posted I am pretty sure it had been established that dream-sellers panels were of a lower quality "binning" ("B grade" or something like that; maybe even B-) compared to (some) other sellers. The best (A and/or A+ I think) go to the big OEMs straight from Samsung (or into Samsung-branded displays), as far as I understand it.

Anyone have super tight timings? I get the occasionial green line at @120hz and im using a modified LCD Reduced timing set, i believe ended up at 468mhz with total pixels of 2700x1445.

This is with my best cable, the other ones show more lines.

Anyone get 120hz <= 450mhz with a Radeon card?
post #6890 of 25911
Yeah Spartan F8 has done some work and reported good findings on timings and pixel clock and such. Can try searching this thread for "front porch".
