Absolutely flawless. I needed a 10 foot cable for my setup.

It does come with a six foot DP cable as seen in the pictures on Newegg: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824014451

Price on Amazon is $502.94 by the way.

Thanks a bunch! I have to get the panel from Newegg because I have premiere. I just order 3 and keep the best one when panel shopping. No restock fee and free shipping both ways.

I just joined the XL2730Z club and have some questions. I used to have a 970 paired with the Acer 144hz 24" monitor. Never had any issues. I originally came to that monitor from a 27" x-star. I missed the resolution so I upgraded to this beauty.

I recently switched over to a powercolor 390x to take advantage of freesync. When I plugged in this monitor via the included DVI cable my pc automatically upped the resolution to 2560x1440p. However when I go into AMD catalyst control center I can not up the refresh rate past 60hz. All I see under the drop down menu is 2560x1440p @ 60hz. I have the latest beta driver off the amd website for the 390x I believe. I also have windows 10 pro. I have not messed with the included cd that came with the monitor or looked into it too much as I have not had the time yet. Any help is appreciated. Thank you!

Did you go to your monitor settings in windows and change the refresh rate to 144? Im pretty sure it defaults to 60 when you connect the monitor for the first time.

This is a bug. callsignvega already mentioned a fix.

Go into monitor OSD, do a "RESET ALL" or go into the service menu and do a "recall all". this might have to be done in the factory menu which is the same key combination as XL2720Z.

Then use display driver uninstaller (Wagnard), uninstall the display driver with DDU in windows safe mode, then reinstall.

Monitor is not able to be put in 144hz in Windows either. =/

EDIT 3: Ignore everything. I am an idiot and was using the DVI-D cable over DP because that is what I used on my ACER 144hz and overclocked X-Star. Plugged in the DP and it switched right over to 144hz. Thanks for helping an idiot. biggrin.gif
