I imagine that Asus has direct access to the manufacturing process, and/or directly controls it, since it is a panel they developed. Even if they haven't settled on the coating yet, if they did in the next week, they could have them to distributors by end of the month.

I am thinking REALLY late March to mid April launch window, and oh boy, is my wallet ready!

Im still interested in this monitor if they keep the AG coating to a minimum. If they bukake this thing with AG I guess ill continue my search for a new monitor.

Bukkake, so funny. biggrin.gif

If you love gloss monitors I just got a new Planar PXL2790MW full glass front gloss monitor. 27inch 2560x1440 it’s absolutely beautiful powered on or off.

-The stand it arrives on has only pivot like the Apple displays, so I put it on a SpaceCo SpaceArm since its VESA mountable.

-The installed speakers are terrible, no, more like horrific, better to forget they even exist.

-And there are no USB ports 2.0 or 3.0.

Where this monitor really outshines all others is its true whites and text clarity and text scaling in Windows. And the brightness is up to 440cd/m^2, my last monitor which I returned to Newegg was only 300cd/m^2 the Samsung S27A850D, this monitor is so much nicer, if you can live without the USB ports, I can I have four USB 3.0 front I/O ports on a Magnum M8 and two USB 2.0 ports on my HHKB Pro 2.

Got mine from Newegg for $559, and then the SpaceArm was another $249, so if you cannot live with tilt only (I can’t, I like the full hover mode) biggrin.gif then factor in the cost of a decent stand or arm.

I almost paid $1200 for the Samsung 970D, with no VESA mount, so happy I found this beautiful glass front Planar, I usually don’t put much credibility in Tom’s Hardware reviews, but everything they mention in this review is exactly as it arrived out of the box from Newegg. So thanks Tom, I’ll be reading you again.

http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/planar-pxl2790mw-review,3647.html

Here’s the SpaceCo SpaceArm, mine was $199, then the quick release and C-clamp shipping brought it up to 249.43, comes with a 10-year warranty, the sidekick Wendell over at Tek Syndicate uses a large multi arm 4 or 6 monitor setup in platinum, I just got the single arm in black.

I do not approve of the lack of native 1440p 3D....that really makes it pointless for me to get this display when I still have a perfectly good FW900.....sigh mad.gif

This news discourages me as well. We may need to ask the Helix group or mdrejhon(sp?) to chime in on whether a 1440p 3D Vision hack is feasible.

Yes but the Dev kit 2 is only going to be 1080p....and the CV1 may.....may end up being 1440p but that is a good 1-2 years off. The Rog Swift would have provided high def 3D waaay ahead of the game, but Asus dropped the ball......sigh.....again.
post #1789 of 8206
How has Asus dropped the ball? 1080p is a limit imposed by nvidia not Asus. Also 3d isn't exactly wildly popular splits not really going to affect most people.

If it's only 3D Vision that's in 1080p gaming it's no biggie as long as 2D gaming is at 1440p and with G-sync, I'm good.

3D Vision Blu-ray movies are displayed in 1080p which is a moot point.
