    Damn, mine is still stuck in "Label Created" status since yesterday. Hopefully it will arrive on Saturday, but who knows at this point.

    LG 38GL950G - 37.5" 3840x1600/G-Sync/175Hz

    Welp, holy shit it actually shipped today. Estimated delivery is Friday. EDIT: Well, the label was created at least. Hopefully it actually goes out today.

    I am now LCD free

    FWIW I tried the C9 as a monitor and it was useless for productivity. There's an undefeatable dimming function that if you have a static level of brightness in whatever you're doing (such as a white webpage or a dark movie or game) the whole panel will gradually change brightness on its own. It...

    LG 38GL950G - 37.5" 3840x1600/G-Sync/175Hz

    Most likely it'll have some bleed like you mentioned since it's part and parcel of this type of panel, but I'll withhold judgment until I see it in person. The reviewer said he was cranking up the exposure on his camera to show it better, but it'll be hard to judge how bad it really is until it...

    FWIW it's also showing availability at BuyDig, but I'm pretty certain that's the same company as Beach Camera.

    LG 38GL950G - 37.5" 3840x1600/G-Sync/175Hz

    I just folded like a cheap suit. I ended up splurging on the overnight shipping since there was no sales tax and it was less than $65. I'm seriously doubting it'll ship tomorrow, and even if it does it most likely won't arrive on Thanksgiving.

    LG 38GL950G - 37.5" 3840x1600/G-Sync/175Hz

    This monitor is now available for preorder from B&H. They don't have an "expected by" date anymore, but the fact that preorders are available seems to imply that they're shipping soon.

    34" 21:9 UltraWide Displays (3440x1440) - LG UM95/UM65 & Dell U3415W

    That's my understanding, yes. Someone can correct me if they think this is wrong. Games will apply a software color profile, but I believe they are applied under the assumption that your monitor is unchanging in it's own color settings. You should be seeing accurate colors in games as intended...

    34" 21:9 UltraWide Displays (3440x1440) - LG UM95/UM65 & Dell U3415W

    One quick clarification for everyone: Using this method, there is no need to use Color Sustainer. Using True Color Finder and a hardware calibrator actually calibrates the settings in the monitor itself and writes it to a hardware LUT. Your monitor has been calibrated and will remain on the...

    Dell U3014 unusable for motion?

    Hey medavid16, I hope my comments didn't imply your videos weren't helpful. They definitely are, I was just trying to explain their limitations. Sorry if my comments made it seem like you were being unhelpful, that definitely wasn't my intention. Thanks again for posting those videos.

    Dell U3014 unboxing :)

    No problems that I see on mine. Out of the box the factory calibration is a little yellow/greenish, but I fixed that pretty quickly by switching to the Custom Color setting and "calibrating" it by hand to fit my preferences. If you've tried the settings yourself and simply can't get rid of it...

    Dell U3014 unusable for motion?

    But he's referring to RTC overshoot specifically, that's the whole point of his thread (unless I misunderstand the point you're making, feel free to correct me.) I guess I'm confused as to what you're saying. He took screenshots of a 30 fps video, while the monitor refresh on the desktop is at...

    Dell U3014 unusable for motion?

    Sorry for the confusion, but I think the point point of my previous posts was unclear. I didn't say it was impossible to take video of RTC overshoot artifacts and post it on YouTube. I was taking issue with the method you, specifically, tried to use. The screenshots and video appear to only show...

    Dell U3014 unusable for motion?

    Also, what was posted doesn't quite resemble RTC overshoot. Overshoot usually isn't the same color as the image itself, it's a halo effect in other colors. I believe what you're demonstrating is just motion blur, which again can be accounted for due to everything I mentioned above (30 fps video...

    Dell U3014 unusable for motion?

    Ok, I've been trying to be respectful up until now, but this is bordering on absurd. The iPhone only takes videos at a max of 30 fps. YouTube only shows videos at a max of 30 fps. Look it up if you don't believe me. Basically, this whole test is total bunk. You're taking screenshots of a 30...

    Dell U3014 unusable for motion?

    I also got my U3014 today via FedEx. Very impressed with this monitor, and I've owned a lot (roughly 12 or 14 in the last 3 years). Played a couple hours of BF3 in multiplayer as well as another 2 hours of SimCity. Really didn't notice any ghosting issues, and I was looking for it the whole...

    Dell U3014 unboxing :)

    Thanks for the feedback, especially on the driver CD. Out of curiosity, have you seen any of the weirdness on the bottom 10% of the screen that other users and the TFT Central review reported?

    Monoprice 30" IPS Pro Monitor

    Thanks, I'll try to put together a vid for the Dell U3014. I haven't been able to find any unboxing videos or anything else, so I'll see if I have time to throw one up.

    Dell U3014 News

    Yeah, one of the reasons I was looking forward to this monitor was to be able to play games in an sRGB mode instead of being stuck in a wide-gamut mode like I was with the HP ZR30w. I'm assuming you're referring to playing in sRGB mode?

    Dell U3014 News

    That is good news indeed. Let us know if you end up playing any other games that bring this problem out again. Can you tell us what you were playing when you first saw the problem? On a side note, Dell already has my U3014 marked as "Shipped." The WEIRD part is the tracking number on their...

    Monoprice 30" IPS Pro Monitor

    No problem, guys, thanks for the kind words. I went ahead and ordered the Dell U3014. I was planning on just waiting for that monitor to come out (I much prefer LED backlit panels personally) but for $700 I figured I could get a great product for half the price as the big brands. I definitely...

    Curious to hear more impressions of this phenomenon in game mode. Could this be the pixel walk described in the TFT Central review? http://www.tftcentral.co.uk/reviews/dell_u3014.htm Placed my order tonight (already "In Production," surprisingly) but would love to see a video of this weirdness...

    Monoprice 30" IPS Pro Monitor

    Ha! That's the spirit! ;) Think I'm going to RMA this sucker. The black backgrounds look fine to me as well. Every other color is the problem. I opened up Gmail and couldn't stop staring at that weird pattern on the right.

    Monoprice 30" IPS Pro Monitor

    Nope, I'll admit I'm probably abnormally picky about monitors, but I'm not looking for absolute perfection. My current Asus 27" PLS panel I love but it has some color uniformity issues, but I still kept it. However, I think you'd agree that $700 is too much to pay for what I got. If there was...

    Monoprice 30" IPS Pro Monitor

    Alright, this YouTube video is taking awhile to upload (crapped out on me once, forcing me to start over). It should be up in an hour or so. I go into great detail as to my impressions of the monitor, and it's a nice piece of kit for all intents in purposes. No dead pixels, antiglare is medium...

    Monoprice 30" IPS Pro Monitor

    My DVI-only version arrives tomorrow (damn UPS) so I'll report back on the AG coating more. I had a ZR30w with the heavy antiglare coating and currently own an Asus PB278Q with the semi-gloss coating that Samsung uses on all their PLS screens. I'll keep you informed as to what level the AG...

    Monoprice 30" IPS Pro Monitor

    Thanks so much for the pics! Can't wait to get mine on Thursday. I had a feeling that this was not going to be glossy despite my chat with them today. They really need to get info to their CSR's better. Btw, how are the OSD controls? Is there color adjustment and is it any good?

    Monoprice 30" IPS Pro Monitor

    Nope, I ordered and shipped via UPS Ground. As I'm on the East Coast, it was $35 just to ship it the cheapest way possible (my only beef with Monoprice is the lack of cheaper shipping options when compared to Newegg). Overnighting it was close to $150. It should arrive Thursday or Friday...

    Monoprice 30" IPS Pro Monitor

    Wow, good catch. I would agree that the price of the new panels probably hasn't dropped enough for the cheaper Korean brands to drop them in the bargain basement versions. Regardless, I'll have to see what happens when the Monoprice version arrives later this week. Luckily, I previously owned...

    Monoprice 30" IPS Pro Monitor

    Huh, so strange why they'd bother branding one the "Pro" and the other the "CrystalPro" if they're both glossy. Regardless, I'll have to see whether I can live with a glossy if it does indeed turn out to be such. I live on the 13th floor (ooooh!) of an apartment building, so we get a lot of...

    Monoprice 30" IPS Pro Monitor

    If it IS using the same panel in the U3014, that'd be amazing. Antiglare coating typically doesn't bother me too much, but the HP ZR30w was pretty thick. Really cut down on the sharpness of text that I'm used to on my Asus PB278Q. From what I've read, the U3014 is a much lighter level of...

    Monoprice 30" IPS Pro Monitor

    Will do. It won't be delivered until Thursday judging by Monoprice's shipping (shame they don't have free shipping, but at this price I guess I can't complain too much) but I'll make sure to throw up some pics and a review. Currently I'm using an Asus PB278Q, and recently returned the HP ZR30w...

    Monoprice 30" displays?

    Just ordered one of the DVI-only versions yesterday. I'll post a quick review up when I get it. I'm pretty picky about monitors (I have gone through 8 in the last two years) so I'll run it through the ringer :D Accidentally didn't see this post and started a new thread here with some discount...
