post #7891 of 25935
Well isn't that nice. FexEx wants $36.50 from me for the duty and tax invoice after I've had my two monitors for a weekish. Do I call and dispute it or just pay it? redface.gif

Also, one of my screens has image retention on it whereas the other doesn't, and the one that does has a backlight that can turn all the way off if I want it to, but the other doesn't. One did have a different color temperature but I think that's my GPU's DVI ports as flipping which port they're connected to changes the color temperatures on the.

Otherwise, no other issues to report on my end.

Check a couple posts back. I described the problem and posted pictures. I hooked it up to see if it works at all, and the BLB seems to be better but not quite there yet.



If I bend the corner by hand I can get the BLB to disappear entirely. I may look for something to clamp the corner.

Needless to say I'm very pleased. Now I just have to work up the courage to get the awful stand off this thing.

Luckily with the X-Star you just have to tug on the clear stub of the stand until it comes off, you don't need to open up the casing.

Anyone else get this? I'm not particularly sensitive to flicker, but at the lowest brightness setting the screen practically blacks out in bursts. I can also see it very faintly at max brightness.

ok so i can't find a straight answer in this topic (and yes i searched) but is hdmi-dvi possible with these monitors for the sole purpose of testing to make sure it works? i want to buy one soon (the price just keeps going up, don't wanna wait any longer) but i won't have desktop to use it with currently, just a laptop with hdmi. will i be able to get 1080p on the monitor with an adapter? worst case scenario i try and lug it over to a friend's house to test it...

Short answer, no. This monitor only accepts dual-link DVI 2560 x 1440. I tried doing exactly what you want to do with a single-link DVI to HDMi cable and it didn't work. The reason why I even attempted to try was because I thought the pixel clock patcher would work for mobile GPUs and allow me to push the full 2560 x 1440 pixles over a single-link DVI but I was wrong.

Except... twice in the past day I have gotten a garbled screen, once at 96hz and once at 120hz about 5 hours later. This is after about 12 hours of use. Is this from the monitor or my PC? I am running at 60hz right now to see if it happens again. It's a bit worrying, as there are no other issues with static or flashing lines at any other time.



Also, this is my first post after lurking for years. Hi.



Your timings might not be stable - have you tried a lower hz but using LCD Standard, then being a bit more adventurous and doing LCD Reduced..then finally custom timings? Also that BLB is pretty bad - might wanna think about opening it up and straightening out the frame (and using pieces of paper against the inside of bezel and frame to even out the pressure if needed)

Ya mine exhibits obvious strobing at the lowest brightness - at around 7 ticks from the bottom its pretty good (my camera doesnt pick it up). My Panasonic ST50 is way worse, luckily it doesnt bother me. Try looking at your LCD/Plasma HDTV...i bet you its worse than your monitor smile.gif

Right thanks. I've noticed it on TV's alot yea, thankfully it isn't too noticable on max brightness, but I'll have to see what the Ebay seller says.
