Standard packaging, wrapped in a nice layer of white open-cell foam. White box had a large vertical crease on both sides - pulled it out, no issues with the monitor.

- One slightly gray pixel on white screen, not distracting at all.
- OC'ed at 96HZ easily (verified no skipping), haven't tried past that, probably won't
- Stereo cable is worthlessly short
- Color seemed a bit 'warm' with default profile - used one of the ICC profiles from the front page (another Matte, 96hz OC)
- What the heck is this 'button' next to the power light?
- Much better response time than the HDTV I used as a monitor previously - did not have a gaming mode, and had substantial input lag.
- Well worth $285. I'm very happy.

Seller was "storewithstory." Seemed relatively unknown, seems to be an OK seller - though I don't think I will need to return this monitor so I cannot attest to customer service.

I don't think there is any audio out on these by default. Just an FYI. The cable is not only worthlessly short, it doesn't do anything. I had to open this up to fix the backlight bleed on it and there is a slot near those buttons that's basically just not hooked up to anything.

No worries.

- Purchased evening of 10/30
- Received tracking info morning of 11/1
- Received on afternoon of 11/4

I live on the US west coast.

I really want to buy this monitor, but a few things are holding me back.

- I REALLY want 120hz. Anything less is just a no-no. I'm reading 90+% can do at least 96Hz, which might be enough, I don't know, but I'm a sucker for refreshrates.
- It seems like many people get bad luck of the draw and get BLB or Dead Pixels =[
- Going from surround to 1440p kind of makes my 3-way SLI setup a complete and utter overkill.
- Not being able to surround anymore! Sometimes I do like it.

So i went from 2x GTX570 SLI to 2x AMD radeon R9-280x. Anything you guys can suggest me I should do to get the most out of my screen and crossfire setup. I already removed Nvidia drivers etc etc. Anything i can do to force the refresh rate for games etc etc. Thanks in advance

My single 7950 works well with it. smile.gif Currently playing Crysis 2 at max settings and runs very smooth, no AA though, not needed at this res.

After Looking at what i thought was 1 dead pixel, it seems to be a clump of 7 dead pixels together, so i used a dead pixel checker and found 4 more.......11 in total.....not happy. mad.gif
