Nixeus didn't ship out my monitor yet, so I was able to pick it up from their office!
The monitor box:
NOTE: The box is HEAVY - heavy enough that the box's plastic handles broke while I was carrying the monitor to my car. Good thing I'm short so the drop was minimal. So be sure to carry it by holding the sides or carrying from the bottom.
Opening the box and taking out the contents, I found out the stand and stand base made up the bulk of the box's weight.
The directions for installing the stand was not informative enough, but at least the screws are labeled so you know where they go:
I'm using a display port 1.2 cable to connect the monitor to my Gigabyte Windforce GTX 670...
Running some tests - I did not find any dead or defective pixels and there was no back light bleeding... at least I couldn't find any:.
Adjusting the height was fairly easy, but tilting it was kind of hard (at least it feels solid). I found out to swivel left or right that you had to hold on to the monitor shaft and twist left or right.
Rotating it clockwise into portrait mode was fairly easy:
Playing Battlefield 3 in 2560x1440p I didn't notice any input lag and it did not affect my reaction time or gaming scores (K/D Ratio) - anyone that has played with me knows that I don't camp and I don't nade/noob tube spam! I always play FPS games with V-Sync OFF. As you can see, I play BF3 ALOT! (Feel free to add me on Battlelog):
I'm happy that I waited for the Nixeus Vue. It is definately worth upgrading from my i-INC 27" 1920x1200 Monitor...I would get another one but I would need to upgrade my desk first!
I ran some benchmarks to see how my PC rig performed with the Nixeus Vue 27's 2560x1440p Resolution:
Here are my Resolution Settings on a full server for a 64 Player Operation Firestorm
I ran FRAPS 8 times while I was flying the jet - dog fighting and shooting at ground units (Yes I'm a decent jet pilot). I fly close to the ground and try to keep the same runs. These frames per second was replicated and consistent during my benchmark runs.
At 2560x1440p, Battlefield 3 really puts the GTX 670 to work as you can see the numbers on MSI Afterburner... BF3 chews up about 1.8GB worth of GPU Memory! If you are planning to purchase a 2560x1440 IPS monitor, you are definitely going to need a Graphics Card with at least 2GB of Memory!
