Thanks in advance,

In case you don't how to check for the firmware version.

Turn the monitor off.

Put your finger first over the menu sensor.
Then while you finger is on the menu sensor put your other finger over the power sensor and hold them both til the monitor comes on and then release both fingers.
There will be the normal dialog box at the top right coner that comes up for a few seconds but then another small dialog box (SM) will pop in a couple seconds ON THE TOP LEFT corner of the monitor with the firmware version. If it doesn't touch the menu sensor once after the monitor turns on per above steps.
You might have to do this a few times if you don't see it on the first try.

Service Menu
27EA63V
NT68773 Ver 1.8

Manufactured: MAR 2013

That help? -Davis

+1 for the LG 27EA63V-P since it's an IPS display.

Uses newer technology, has brighter cd/m^2 values and much better color reproduction and viewing angles since it's an IPS panel.

Please read on the difference between IPS LCD and non-IPS LCD. IPS blows non-IPS out of the water.

I've been "PM'd" asking for me to post up my .icc profile. Can anyone suggest a good (free) place on the net where I can post the profile so that others can download it and try it out? Thanks -Davis

P.S. Part of the calibration process you first must set the Brightness and contrast before the Spyder goes through it's process. Spyder suggested Brightness @ 35 and Contrast @ 50. Remember every one's video card will produce different results; none the less, I'd like to post up the .icc anyway.
BTW I'm using an MSI 670 PEOC GTX 670 (right now) but, the GTX 770 Lightning is on the way ! thumb.gif

Just found this thread via Google. Looking for reviews/hands-on with the LG. So far, everything looks very positive.

How about:
http://www.tftcentral.co.uk/articles/icc_profiles.htm

BTW, just ordered the monitor today after seeing it at Best Buy yesterday. NCIX.com has it right now for $100 off ($279.99 with free shipping). My order went through even though the site says that special price expired yesterday. YMMV I guess.

I think I might have found the best compromise, you can now "overclock" your monitor to run faster refresh rates! See article: http://www.guru3d.com/articles_pages/geforce_gtx_780_review,4.html -Davis:thumb:

Ya but it's not really guarenteed. They started this feature with the titan. Some monitors dont OC at all. Almost none of the high end ones reach 120hz. The Dell U2713HM I had hit 90hz, which is probably the highest any of the higher end IPS 60hz monitors will go.

Yes this is definitely not something that is very common. Also it takes some good tweaking to get right and confirm it is working properly. Some of the popular monitors for it are the catleap and Qnix/xstar. When over clocking you will have to use a mulitiude of different cables, timings and even display ports on your GPU. Also you need to run a refresh rate multitool to test to make sure you are not skipping frames.

It is some work to get working just right but i can say as a Qnix owner running at 120hz that it is worth it if you are not concerned with the well known draw backs of buying a korean monitor.

On another note there are a few Asus and Dell monitors that do pretty good. I can tell you from experience that the Asus VS229H can overclock to about 78hz.

Good call on the Database TD; I'll read up on the terms and see if I can't get it posted up there. Thanks -Davis

Agreed for the viewing angles. PhotoShop, Visual Studio, Eclipse, web development -- certainly is much more pleasant on IPS due to the wide viewing angles.

BUT.... That said, if your purpose is primary gaming -- especially first person shooters -- then IPS goes into essentially a VHS-quality motion blur during fast pans. It becomes a blurry soup during fast 180 degree turns, fast strafing, high speed low passes in BF3, and anything that causes fast panning or scrolling; will be a total motion blur. If you can run 100fps@100Hz or 120fps@120Hz, -- AND you want fast panning that is as perfectly sharp as stationary images if you're sensitive to motion blur -- THEN the 120Hz LightBoost monitors is your bet.



(From this page: PHOTOS : 60Hz vs 120Hz vs LightBoost).
Only LightBoost monitors give you the true CRT feeling during fast motion gaming, for those users who are sensitive to motion blur.
