Hey guys. I've been lurking on this thread for a while now, and this has become my dream monitor. I wasn't positive until just this week that this was the monitor for me so I didn't get the chance to preorder. I'd buy it up in a second if it was back in stock at Newegg especially because I'd like the increased warranty option. That link to Bottom Line Telecommunications looks incredibly tempting even though I don't see an extra warranty option. But is it seriously almost $100 cheaper on there?

Never bought anything from there myself but it is, or was yesterday $1202 USD with shipping.

Like I said earlier, I was determined I was going to order one there tonight if I had no luck. Spoke to representative on the phone...no charge until shipped.

If it turns out bogus you can always cancel or take it up with your bank, mine is always an immediate credit of funds if things get sketchy.

Better yet use a credit card, always more protection.

Was that aimed at me in regards to the other OSD settings?

I feel your pain regarding calibration. I'm never sure if it's right or not. I have it next to my LG and it looks totally fine, but ever so slightly different from my LG and I have no idea if that's OK or not. It might be better calibrated than the LG but since this came second I honestly have no idea

If I understand the TFT profile you can either set it manually using the monitor panel or you can load the profile as a software option. Doing both does nothing correct?

Just jumped on the backorder from BLT. Can only hope it gets here in time for Fallout 4! The hype is real! biggrin.gif

I have a sypder 3 pro but I haven't used it. As I said before, I am a complete MORON when it comes to color correction. But the TFT settings I've applied without touching cyan, magenta, and yellow look real good.

So for my final update today, this thing is a keeper.

The BLB is regulated to the upper right corner and it is minuscule. I'm not providing a pic because it exaggerates the situation, you'll just have to trust me. It is so much better than any other IPS I've owned that perhaps I just received an excellent sample. This is not to say there is not GLOW, which is apparent...blacks are just not real deep blacks...thats it.

I used it for about 3 hours straight on the desktop, finishing work related tasks, applying settings and just exploring the device.

I booted up BF4 and Witcher 3 and holy crap, it's a whole new experience. Gsync is amazing far, I even saw the effect while watching benchmarks in Valley.

It's too expensive, I know. Is it worth the asking price? No, not a chance. But if you indulge you will not be disappointed.

Running 980ti under water @1550mhz, frames are great

And SO FAR I've not had an issue where my monitor boots halfway from resting. I never put my PC to sleep, just close the screen after 30 minutes. I will test this with sleep mode tonight.
