    I think I was getting motion sickness from the sheer size of a 27" when I first got it.

    How far away for 4K PC monitors, and affordable ?

    OLED is also going to be hard to sell, the main advantage is near infinite ANSI contrast ratios but something like that isn't obvious to a normal consumer looking at it next to an LCD under thousands of watts of lighting in a B&M store. Plus, you know, as with plasma and CRT, OLED does have...

    How far away for 4K PC monitors, and affordable ?

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IPhone_4 First released GSM model (black): June 24, 2010 So yes, Apple's branding is inevitable. But Apple only pushes one thing at a time, the next step is a retina ipad mini. Displays aren't cheap enough for them to sell a retina desktop monitor to ANYONE so it's...

    How far away for 4K PC monitors, and affordable ?

    Apple has little reason to make a desktop display with that resolution. A display being "Retina" is a function of the closest normal use case(distance eye->screen) and the pixel size at that display the human eye can distinguish. A 27" 2560x1440 display is borderline "retina" already if you...

    How far has LCD tech come in 5 years? is it worth upgrading?

    I had a TN panel about that age that I was around the top of the line at the time, from newer TN's I've had things haven't changed just gotten cheaper(and maybe worse, LED backlight has a whole new set of issues with flashlighting effects, PWM flickering headaches, ect). I guess it depends on...

    Auria EQ276W review ($399 27" 2560x1440 IPS)

    Resolution and panel type. I don't know why anyone would buy a 1080p 27" monitor.

    Try a different display if you have one.

    Dell U2713HM

    Dells and Apple Cinema Displays certainly have IPS glow. Read any review on them, no one fails to mention it. IPS glow doesn't magically disappear when the panel is in a "name brand" as its a fault of the technology used to make the panel, which all of these displays share. My LG-IPS TV has...

    Looking at a 2560x1440 Monitor - Help me Choose

    I think input lag on the Auria isn't much higher(an extra frame) than other Korean displays when using DVI-D 2560x1440, I think the other inputs and non-native resolutions introduce the lag.

    Dell U2713HM

    If your normal use is in a dim/dark room with with material with a lot of dark/black portions, you are probably too blind to drive if you don't notice it. IPS Glow is infinitely more annoying than a single dead pixel on one of these screens.

    Dell U2713HM

    I don't think that is fair, IPS glow is often worse than average back light bleeding. Backlight glow is a HUGE problem with IPS displays and why it isn't often used in TVs.

    Auria EQ276W review ($399 27" 2560x1440 IPS)

    groebuck: It's probably IPS glow. Does the bleeding follow you as you move around? IPS displays aren't much good for movies/dark room viewing(*VA panels are better suited). If anyone else is interested, I use use the Crossover 27Q ICC profile from here...

    Dell U2713HM

    I tried to pickup the dell for $559, but Amazon was getting hit hard by the time I saw it. I have an Auria right now(Microcenter Korean), this monitor has some yellow bleeding visible on white screens that I've seen described in this thread.

    Auria EQ276W review ($399 27" 2560x1440 IPS)

    Do these monitors use PWM? I couldn't find anything online. edit: tried testing for it, I can see my CCFL TV uses PWM but this monitor shows no signs. I'm asking cause I've got the worst fucking headache right now(and some nausea) and I bought this monitor to crank out some final programming...

    Auria EQ276W review ($399 27" 2560x1440 IPS)

    Will just the power brick do it, or does the monitor have to be plugged in? I'm not carrying my monitor to the bathroom, but my brick didn't trip it.

    Auria EQ276W review ($399 27" 2560x1440 IPS)

    Picked one up, I have a dead subpixel(green wont light up, so the pixel is always blue/red). Also, I've noticed the lower 1/3 of the screen tints to a slightly(and I mean slightly) yellower color temp. Will Microcenter hassle me for exchanges? The display is beautiful and the non-tinted part of...

    Monoprice to sell re-branded FSM-270YG 2560x1440 IPS for $390

    Did anyone disassemble these? The same panel should not have such variances.

    27" IPS 2560x1440 monitor~90hz <$400 FS

    Honestly, the demand isn't that high and (most) factories are tooled to mass produce 1080p TN panels, they have no incentive to re-tool. 1920x1200 faded to the wayside in the wave of 1080p full-hd buzzword hype, not because it's really more difficult to produce. They still exist, but are...

    27" IPS 2560x1440 monitor~90hz <$400 FS

    In addition to my previous question, what brands (if any) of these monitors use PWM for brightness control of the LED back-lights?

    27" IPS 2560x1440 monitor~90hz <$400 FS

    Then buy the one from Microcenter for $399. http://microcenter.com/product/384780/EQ276W_27_IPS_LED_Monitor It's a B&M store in the US, if you get a dead pixel just exchange it.

    27" IPS 2560x1440 monitor~90hz <$400 FS

    Why pay for pixel perfect? From what I've heard, the sellers just send the monitor out anyway without careful inspection and refund the difference if it has dead pixels. Plus, if a panel has no dead pixels, presumably it was binned lower for other reasons(like bad back-light bleeding). I'm...

    AS5 vs MX-2 vs MX-3?

    By a tiny margin and costs twice as much and is much thicker which is something I dislike ;) I'm not worried about 1C difference in performance.

    ATI 5770 - Poor Quality over HDMI

    HDMI 1.1 is spec'ed to handle 1920×1200p60 with audio and shouldn't be an issue unless its a defective cable.

    AS5 vs MX-2 vs MX-3?

    Good enough for me, guess I'm ordering some MX-2. If I'm applying to a small GPU core should I use the spread method? I know line/dot is preferred for large surfaces due to air bubbles but it seems Arctic Silver recommends spread method on small surfaces still.

    AS5 vs MX-2 vs MX-3?

    Has anyone noticed temp drops after reapplying aged MX-2? I know what the package says....but manufactures often over exaggerate a lot. I've also observed AS5 performs poorly in lower temperature applications because curing time is greatly increased, do any of these TIMs perform worse in high...

    AS5 vs MX-2 vs MX-3?

    I've finally exhausted all of my thermal paste and need to purchase a new tube; its been 5 years since I last purchased any thermal paste and what I found is most people go for the new MX-2 and MX-3 paste by Arctic Cooling. The reviews I've read show a max of 1-2C difference between all of these...

    I'll grab my camera tomorrow and take some pics.

    More expensive GPU would be a little crazy considering most the gaming on it will be UT2004 and some source games don't you think? Thats why I was going to put more into the CPU because a 4850 is already overkill and I don't know what to do with the extra money other than a CPU or GPU...
