780s, 144hz monitors, and a suitcase - Page 3

post #21 of 26
Make sure that your mpnitor has the same voltage regulations for the power, otherwise you'll blow the monitor without an adapter.

Last week I flew and brought a 780 and ASUS VG248QE on the plane. I placed the 780's box in a suitcase and packed some clothes around it. I shipped the monitor in the original packaging. They accepted it as luggage, the box even has a handle. Upon arrival it was placed in a separate holding area instead of the luggage carousel.

Good point! I totally forgot about that. I am currently using a (attached link) to use my ASUS G73 laptop. Shouldnt the monitor work just fine with the same little device?

As long as this little wonder can actually CHANGE the voltage regulations, and is not just there for the physical compatibility, then yes, it will work fine.

http://www.kropla.com/electric2.htm - According to this website, America and Turkey use completely different voltages, thus confirming my previous worry. If the monitor allows a variety of voltages (usually shown on the plug), then it should work fine

Example:

If it doesn't, then you need to buy a 'US to Turkey' mains adapter, usually found in various electrical shops in your area (in Turkey).
Here's a good website regarding this issue, I haven't a clue about voltages and what not; it was just a concern.

If you are still baffled, speak to an expert on a forum, or just contact the manufacturer of the monitor.

Hope I helped thumb.gif

Turkey voltage is 220.

That monitor OP is buying says 100 - 240v, is that supposed to be the "supported ranged"? Would this work in turkey then?

Ideally, you'd have the monitor in its original box, with the styrofoam packaging.
Since the LED screen is the most exposed part, cover the whole face with some thick, strong cardboard that you attach securely with some clear or duct tape to the monitor body.
Make sure the card can output in PAL or whatever TV system you have in Turkey - if you intend to connect PC to TV.
