I applied for the Discover it just for this occasion. 5% when purchasing from Amazon.com with double cash back. So it'll be $70.00 USD cash back and then another $70.00 at year's end.

Your American Express Every Blue is better than mine. Mine is 1% on everything else. I assume you applied for the one with an annual fee.

First of all, I am not little and secondly, I am calm. Too many assumptions on your part. Just don't do this if we're ever in person, with your ridiculous assumptions, okay? Can you agree to that?

And what was your comment about "Sweet man?" about? Doesn't make any sense at all.

I'm only using a 23.6 TN 60Hz monitor so this DELL would still be a quadruple upgrade for me. Perhaps I should go this route instead for 2 years.

That would be awesome if Dell designed one of these X34 type monitors. I know that they have a 27" G-Sync version.

I've heard the Dell can OC to around 75 Hz though no G-Sync/FS but for half the cost it's a good option IMO.

Additionally, Dell has started coming out with some GSync monitors so I think it is possible. Honestly, I wouldn't expect the $1299 price on this to hold for too long, probably will see sub $1K pricing early next year - there's simply too big of a price gap between it and the non Gsync/FS versions.

I expect the same. I think the price of the X34 will be under $1K by next year. It doesn't make any sense to me since there is a better monitor that simply excludes G-Sync.

Just be quit please! You are talking way to much crap, and yeah still you are blocked!


Don't talk to Cobra like you are something, because Cobra is the king here, not you!

It was a mistake and plus you are No one to tell me I can't quote anything. If you posted it, I'm allowed to quote it.

I'm not sure why you are here discussing dell's and credit cards which IS against the ovetclick.net TOS and not to mention derailing the thread again.

You are very quickly becoming another Mikey.

Thanks brotha. I've been trying to help my fellow early adopters. ^^


I HONESTLY ALMOST tried to get one from alternate.de on the first banding batch but couldn't figure out how because... Germany.. lol
post #4138 of 6126
Just finished setting up my monitor. Got it from Alternate.de

Good:
- No banding issues, very good in this regard
- 100 Hz capable
- No dead pixels
- Speakers are serviceable
- DPI feels very good (previous monitor was 24" 16:10 1920x1200)
- 21:9 format is fantastic, subtle curve is perfect, screen real state is amazing even when you're expecting it.

Bad:
- Backlight bleed on the left corners. I come from another IPS, an HP ZR24W, I'm used to IPS glow, this one has bleed and it's noticeable. Calibration has improved it, and I'll do the guetto hair dryer treatment just in case it improves.
- Very bottom of the screen is darker then the rest.
- Calibration is a huge PITA. It seems impossible to get it right, particularly gamma levels. I'm doing it by hand, and I've settled in something that looks good to me, although it's worse than my previous monitor.
- Coil whine at +80Hz, noticeable but not annoying. With any sort of audio on, it's inaudible. After a couple of minutes, you stop hearing it anyway. Please note I'm an audio geek and generally notice anything audio related faster and more solidly than most people.
- Predator logo looks really unprofessional


Bottom line:
The monitor is definitively stunning and I probably won't RMA it. for this sort of price, I'd expect better BLB. Don't know what happens with the calibration, probably I'm still used to the old monitor. 100Hz+Gsync isn't as impressive as I thought it would be, but I still gotta fiddle a bit more. I'd recommend the monitor to enthusiasts with money to burn, otherwise wait not for a cheaper monitor, but for a better one. It's definitively impressive, but also very clearly a "gen 1" device.

I'll post pictures tomorrow hopefully.

When you say coil whine. Is it like GPU coil whine or buzzing (low frequency)? Or is it much higher? like in the 18k range? Like high pitched ringing in your ears?
