After counting up the duty tax and adding more warranty using square offered by eBay for an additional 2 years warranty it comes in at around £330.00....

So while these screens look super cheap they are not that cheap considering you only get 1 year limited warranty and might be troublesome returning the item to south korea. Now with this in mind my question is are these better than say 'Dell Ultrasharp U2713HM" as these on eBay refrub are only £349.99 and £500 new. So how do these compare to Dell's Ultrasharp range?

Putting the 60hz only aside, I plan to use for Design work so motion video/games isn't a big issue on the herts side of things through it may be good on my eyes for hours on end coding and editing.

I have very little frame skipping at 120hz. Is that something i should be concerned at and fix?

Like a frameskip every time it has passed through from top to bottom.

how many buyers have reported their korean-monitor-deaths? i saw at least one on neogaf (after few months of use)

This thread might give you a bit of a insight into the failure rate..

nice, thank you!

can't....resist....

is this the best offer? I want it to be shipped to Poland. Any problems with returning the monitor (in case I feel the BLB is too excessive etc.) to the accesoriesswhole? Can they ship it as a gift?

Anybody has VESA mounted it? Is it solid? I have my monitors attached to the wall.

Also, AC uses a type F power plug. My country (Poland) uses type E sockets... do I need a changover plug or I'm good to go?


Oh and one more question. How well does 1080p games and movies look on this monitor? From what I've read it is ok. It is hard to believe for me, because 720p games on a 1080p monitor (E2370v-BF) look absolutely horrible.
OC'ed 7950 should be enough for 1440p/no AA for now and nearest future though.

Does anyone have an issue where their refresh rates would just vanish and only 60hz is avail? I'll be in 120, 110 or 96hz, doesnt matter, but if i leave the screen sitting for a few minutes and come back the refresh rate is 60hz and the rest are not available until restart and eventually it will go back to 60hz.

The only thing I have at boot is EVGA precision, geforce experience is not installed.. Its been fine for a month or 2, it just started happening a few days ago. Tried the old drivers, old patcher, old CRU , nothing seems to keep my custom values working. The weird thing is it switches when Im not doing anything.. I dont have screen saver or anything on.

Any advise? Thank you!

EDIT:
I'm assuming this error is because of the patch but does anyone else get this..I looked in my windows logs in system and found this:

The description for Event ID 14 from source nvlddmkm cannot be found. Either the component that raises this event is not installed on your local computer or the installation is corrupted. You can install or repair the component on the local computer.

If the event originated on another computer, the display information had to be saved with the event.

The following information was included with the event:

So i just picked up a qnix. I have trifire 7950's. Has anyone been able to do say 96hz overclock with any stability? I realize two bridges are required for 120, just seeing if i can do any sort of overclock at all.

Got my Qnix today and it`s awesome! Looks so good, and the colours wow! No dead pixels, very slight blb on the lower left corner, but not noticeable if you dont look on it like crazy.


Though I think I got a problem. I can go 120hz, 133hz, 140hz, and I see this number also capped in games with vsync, so it seems to work.. If I run the test on firefox it shows 120hz but with framestutter (2). If i run it on IE or chrome it stays as 60fps?

Also, what pixelclock is healthy? I am currently at 483 but I`ve read somewhere that it should not be above 460?

I installed the catleap drivers and im using the Nvidia CP.




edit - in some games i see 120fps with vsync on, in other games i see only 60fps in vsync on. and then in other games vsync off does 120fps cap and fsync on 60fps cap. why is this?


edit2, how do you apply settings with CRU? this is how it looks like but there is nothing like save or apply?

Got my monitor from overclock.net and am disappointed. I bought the pixel perfect version and have a dead pixel smack dab in the middle of the screen and another to the lower right. UGH. So much for pixel perfect.
post #8079 of 25893
Okay, now I am really mad, I just counted 7, yes SEVEN jacked up pixels. This is totally unacceptable.

Two really dark ones, and the rest are harder to see and show up at different angles and are colored. They are not dust on the screen as I wiped over these spots several times.

Certain sellers have different amounts of pixels that they deem acceptable, in certain regions of the screen. Usually its around 5, check with your seller, you might be entitled to an exchange.

For the pixel perfect version, 7 is usually unacceptable. You said you got yours from overclock.net? This website? Or did you mean overclockmonitor.com?

Assuming you live in the US, and it wasn't shipped directly from Korea through an eBay seller, you might actually be able to get the seller to pay for the return shipping, since it wouldn't be nearly as expensive. Try contacting them and seeing what they say.
