(how did I know that applied to some of you O> ?)

Here is some new information people might actually care about. The Samsung monitors and ASUS monitors that use these same panels have these exact same defects probably on all of them. http://vip.asus.com/forum/view.aspx?board_id=13&model=PB278Q&id=20120921015917269&page=1&SLanguage=en-us

This one says he got his direct from Samsung
http://vip.asus.com/forum/view.aspx?board_id=13&model=PB278Q&id=20120921015917269&page=1&SLanguage=en-us

LOL ASUS' policy is more than 6 dead pixels before replacement. http://www.service.asus.com/#!zbd/cjej http://vip.asus.com/forum/view.aspx?id=20130124182950069&board_id=13&model=PB278Q&page=1&SLanguage=en-us LOLOLOL and Slickdealers were questioning these "cheapo" "korean(most of these monitors are Korean; LG is Korean too)" sellers and companies............

These are not A- or B panels thats just how these panels are and the amount of dead pixels we have been seeing is not that out of bounds compared with the major brands either. We are just overly picky bourgeois middle class snob people who don't have clue about the industry or what we are talking about....... LCD monitors I keep reading have extremely high QC rejection rates I guess they just miss some. Those BLB pics you guys are exaggerating it by turning the brightness all the way up on a black image.

This x2

I saw some pics awhile back where someone mentioned maxing out brightness to display blb. Why would someone do this as you are realistically gonna run it full brightness anyways. Not a true test really.

Spartan F8, if you don't mind sharing, what are your exact timings in CRU? IMHO instead of beating around the bush on this topic it may be better to simply post the timings for the benefit of reducing, if not eliminating, further questions on this topic.

Do a little searching Spartan posts his timings for Nvidia cards, i quoted it a couple pages back actually. If you have a Radeon, you might want to give my timings a go - I was able to beat LCD reduced pixel clock by almost 10Mhz which i think is pretty good

Has anyone here bought from red-cap? He sells a pixel perfect monitor very cheap : here!

But i´m kinda sceptical, should I go for it? Im planning on buying it on Monday as an birthday gift for myself biggrin.gif

Haven't heard anything in awhile but I believe Red-Cap is like Dream-Seller--"very cheap" for a reason.

I do not beat around the bush. I simply do not like to repost data that i have already posted before. And no it will not stop questions on this topic. The fact that someone just a couple pages back asked what teh difference between Xstar and Qnix again proves this. You comment actually proves my point as well since had you actively and comprehensively looked through my posts you would have seen my exact timings and my description behind them. A repost my reduce questions for a short time but the effects will be temporary and by far from eliminating. More over, sometimes i am intentionally vague to get people to read and search more rather than just take my settings or exact word for it on these topics. I have a good deal of expertise and have quite the resume but i am at no point going to think there is nothing else to be discovered and would never want myself(outside of work) to be an ends all for people. I have provided my input in the hopes we can ALL build on it to make further progress. Anyone could potentially do some research and find something i may have missed that could push the bar further.

Like ColdFlo(who may have been getting a bit harsh) pointed out the setting in the NVCP about color range. I had completely forgotten about this until he pointed it out and now i can enjoy yet another step in quality with my video playback. Anyone could make contributions like this with a little research.

So bottom line if you can't seem to find my post about a certain topic then send me a PM and when i get some time i will find it and relay the quote of it to you. This will aid in not further bloating the thread with redundant information. And if you see me be a bit vague i am likely trying to "teach a man to fish". This also comes back to what ColdFlo was saying about people in this thread not being too "tech savvy" in some areas.

I look at it this way. Many members are people who wanted the best monitor for the cheapest price or the 1440p@120hz PLS combo. This inherent group does not dictate Guru degree set people but mainly a bargain shopper and/or gamers. Even hard core PC gamers are not going to just know many of these details behind monitor overclocking and display optimization. Generally in any given thread you have your "developer" group and your "information seeker" group. This is what we see here and there is nothing necessarily wrong with it. Most everyone has a specialty set and many of those are not going to be hardware optimization and engineering. Even members of OCN that are masters of CPU OC may come over here and learn something. This is not something to be criticized(ColdFlo) but is a mere byproduct of a forum. It is up to us with knowledge to further the usefulness of the thread and help others out and keeping the info factual. If you get tired of this then opt out and no-one will think any less o you they will just look to others(and hopefully mis-information doesn't spread which would not be said persons fault). It is also a benefit of the thread to have many members that are not completely topic central as it gives them such a bias standpoint they could potentially find or point out something we missed in their line of research(i know i don't remember every fact all the time).

Anyway hope this clears a few things up thumb.gif

I got my first crossover from redcap. Luckily everything went well. He is talked about as a good seller on the crossover forum but there is a bad story from time to time. Now there is not much discussion since Accessoirieswhole has pretty much taken over.

A good tip: if you want to check OCN reviews on certain ebay sellers specifically monitors you can search the "Monitors and displays" section with their name in quotes. For exampe: "red-cap" or "redcap" or "dream-seller" or "dreamseller"

This may be true in certain areas but in the Qnix thread "you get what you pay for" is dead wrong. I recommend anyone looking at any seller to buy a monitor to search and find actual reviews from people who have actually bought from them to reduce any passing comment from creating mis-information.

A few have purchased from Red-Cap. From the members list submissions, 4 to be exact. They had no issues

There is so much information here, thanks to everyone who's taken the time to post.

I got mine for 269 USD from dream-seller on ebay. It arrived two days earlier than expected via Fedex (4 days total from ebay order to my doorstep).
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
It is perfect, flawless!, not one single dead pixel, no fuzziness, banding or discoloration, minimal BLB, no electrical buzzing.
Nothing broken, nothing missing.

The one caveat is that it came with a Korean plug, but I had read about that in this forum and was ready with a quality, standard US three prong cable to replace it.

The monitor worked right on the first try and the colors were so beautiful!, best monitor I have ever owned. Applied the sRGB profiles posted on the front page and tested it at 60, 96 and then 120 hz. It worked on each mode perfectly. I tried bluray playback at NTSC and 24 frame rates and gaming with Borderlands 2. No tearing, no ghosting.

I am running it landscape in dual config with my old trusty S-Panel Samsung 226BW 22inch panel in portrait mode, driven by my aging superclocked EVGA GTX 460 1GB.

I apologize for the crappy iPhone pictures, it is late around here and my desk is jet black.

I'm thinking on selling my 3007WFP-HC and buying one of these, I really can't let go of 120hz glossy goodness after I picked up another VG236HE but the screen is so damn tiny. I've bought a catleap from dream-seller before so maybe I will go that route again.
