What's the korean monitor buzz about?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi guys so ive been hearing a ton about korean monitors and i really need to know what the hype is about. there 60hz so its not the refresh rate (though most people overclock theres to higher though 120hz is not at all 100%). Do they look really good? the prices are good but what's so awesome about these freakn monitors!? Also i recently went into monitor overclocking but sadly both my displays can only hit 65 hz. is that worth it? Obviously 5 extra fps is 5 extra fps and i get 70+ in 99% of my games exlcluding planetside 2. Is going to 65 worth it? Thanks smile.gif any talk is encouraged

Price and performance.

I wanted a 1440p monitor for some time (gaming), Prices in Australia are ridiculous - dell and asus 27" 1440p start at $550Au. I grabbed an XStar off ebay for $320Au. They are supposedly the A- graded panels (with A+ going to larger manufacturers), but mine is perfect pixel, very minimal back light bleed and clocks up to 116 Hz.

When looking at my options for upgrading a 24" 1080p 60 Hz monitor: (prices Australian, Pccasegear)
- 24" 1080p, 120 - 144 Hz ~ $450
- 27" 1080p, 60 Hz, ~ $260
- 27" 1440p, ~ $550

Or grab a Korean monitor off Ebay:
- 27" 1440p 90+ Hz ~ $320

The value, the bang for your buck is what the hype over a Korean monitor is about.

Mine is 4 months old, runs perfectly, great picture.

I posted this in another thread but hope it helps:

I'm using an Overlord tempest monitor X270OC 1440p at 120hz since January 2013 and absolutely love it. I payed about 500$ at the time
It does have some quirks at 120hz thought:
-need to patch every driver release from Nvidia
-sometimes I get a humming sound from the 2B board
-some screen door effects (can be fixed using a program called deliner)
-I ordered a pixel perfect monitor and received 1 dead pixel but I won;y bother RMA it due to the hassle and shipping cost

for me, I don't mind dealing with the above issues because gaming at 1440p at 120hz is absolutely amazing!!!

There are many other similar monitors now for cheaper but maybe other can elaborate on their experiences.
I know overlord is based in the US and if RMA is needed you send it t the US for repairs as opposed to Korea or wherever the seller may be from.

I hope this helps
