Copy and Pasted this from the FAQ section in the OP.

Q: Differences between IPS and PLS? (why is one better than the other, if that?)
A: IPS is made by LG and PLS is made by Samsung. They are both pretty much the same thing, but technically PLS is better.

PLS tend to darken at higher refresh rates - the gamma is too low or something - have to compensate by tweak color settings w/ color profiles, also PLS have slightly better black levels which is good. Other than that - identical.

I am almost ready to jump into it. Probably the QNIX Matte ...or Glossy, if I can make up my mind which one is best for Photo Editing. Just trying to find a place that can ship fast seeing that there is this week delay in Korea now.

Posted in the wrong korean panel thread I think... Is a 6850 way underpowered for this monitor? I'm really wanting to move up to a 1440p/27'' and am kind of worried I'll have to upgrade the graphics card too. Gonna mostly be playing LoL as far as games go, but I mostly need this for the screen space.

What OSs are you using other than Windows? Do you intend to play any other games? What is your combined budget?

You can still use your 6850, you just wont be able to feed 120fps@1440p - but you can still scale to 1080p and not experience input lag and tearing. Itll still look amazing.

Down the line, upgrade and make full use of this panel if you want.

Outside of games tho, your experience will just be as great as everyone elses.

I'm on windows 7 pro, and am probably not going to be playing too many other games. Probably Dota2 and that's it. I haven't really thought about a budget yet.

Still using the system in my sig, except with a 6850 instead of IGP. tongue.gif

yea I saw that, I was just reading other sites (the classic google "pls vs ips") and so I was reading how they were comparing it to the eIPS etc etc.

edit: also sounds like I want matte finish, any opinions on anti-glare? (dont know if these even have it, was looking at Overlords earlier)

Update:

I received my monitor from http://www.ipsledmonitors.com/ and after the initial testing results I can tell you I'm still drooling. x1440 @ 120hz right out of the box, insignificant blb and no dead pixels. This looks and works like a $1000 monitor- great!

I am currently working with Dream Seller on my other monitor, he has kept daily communication with me- seems very friendly and well spoken. I have asked him for a replacement rather than a return, FedEx is supposed to pickup and return the monitor today (Dream Seller's expense).

While ipsledmonitors did send me a perfect monitor, I noticed that it was still shipped from Korea and has the same address as Dream Seller. So the only advantage these guys have over Dream Seller should be the return policy- which I didn't have to use on this monitor. So as it stands I'm not sure it's worth the $60 premium yet or not.

THM:
Dream Seller has a cheaper price and very very fast shipping. Customer support is there, and nice- however they take a day to respond.
Ipsledmonitors Costs more but can offer peace of mind (though I cannot verify returns). Phone support is nice and instantly available.

I shall return once more to update on how returns end up going with Dream Seller- if they go smoothly the risk may be worth it.

*I'm also considering a square trade insurance policy, I confirmed that they will cover both of these sellers. They do not ask for a serial number, so I suppose one plan could cover multiple monitors.

Im gonna buy a new dvi cable on my way home from work. My monitor just cannot seem to overclock. I have tried a couple presets I found others used and no luck. Always a single row of vertical pixels turns red.
