I used DVI cable that came with the monitor. No HDMI :)
AMD guy here.
Think I am going to buy another U3014 and hope I get more lucky. However, don't got the money as of now since I just bought a new TV lol.
I was on a 24inch for several years before I made the climb up to heavens and tried out a 30 inch. No way in hell I am going back to a 24 inch after have tasted the sweet nectar of the gods :P 27 is absolute minimum for me now.
And thank you CrabJuice for agreeing with me regarding the dull...
NCX have you ever tried the monitor? I tell you I have tried what you suggested by leaving the room for 20min after turning down the brightness and such and I promise you that the colors ARE dull. The screen display looks very grey outed and well.. just boring and dead :/
NCX: Any other monitor you would recommend? When I turn down the brightness to 80% etc the image because a lot darker (dooh) but like REALLY dark and noway I can accept this in gaming. Even in Windows it looks dull with 80% :(
Why do everyone keep talking about viewing angels all the time? I don't know about you but I tend to sit at a normal position towards my screen and not ½ way to one side?
With that said.. Any recommendation for a monitor that suits my purpose? As I said above the Eizo 27" LED FlexScan...
I also came from a 24 inch before going 30 and now 27. I absolute love the 27 and 30.
It has to be one of those 2 :)
Are there really no IPS gaming monitors to play dark games in? What about regular gaming then? Minus the dark games in mind, just regular BF4 gaming.
I am getting very frustrated.. I used to have a Dell U3014 but I had to return it because of its severe IPS glow. But my god I do miss it. I was fantastic to have such a huge screen and the color on it.. WOW!
Now I am sitting here with a Eizo 27" LED FlexScan EV2736W-BK and I am not happy...
I sit in a totally dark room. How can you set it so low? The image quality will be great reduced. I tried to set it down to 50 and ohh boy.. The screen got way too dark. Impossible for me to play with. I have set it now at 80%. As for the backlight bleed. I have nothing as far as I can tell...
Hello everyone. I got this monitor and I though I would like to share my view:
I simply cannot decide whether or not I like it. I came from a Dell U3014. I had to return it because of the heavy IPS glow. Compared to this monitor it's around 1% which I am extremely satisfied with. I play games...
Tangolima600: I dare you test your monitor in dark games and etc watching dark movies also. You'll go crazy! I wanted to play Amnesia and I simply couldn't because of the severe IPS glow :/ . It's simply pathetic and outrageous that a $1000 has such flaws.
Sorry to burst your dreams but I just returned my U3014 the other day. Severe IPS glow :/ Like.. REALLY bad :( I'm at the moment looking for a replacement. I find it pathetic that a monitor to $1300 isn't perfect in quality :/ IPS glow shouldn't exist at that price range.
Hello. I need a new gaming monitor. My old monitor was a Dell U3014 but I just returned it today since it had a lot of ISP glow which I couldn't live with when playing dark video games / watching videos.
I would like to stay at 2560x1600 resolution and on a 30inch but a 27 will also do.
Lwerewolf: Gonna try out Lost Coast this evening. I thank you all for your input and hey.. You guys rock! Wanna know why?
I made several posts like this one on other sites and people are clueless what's going on lol.. The first answer here and baaam! You nailed it. Really awesome.
Omg how embarrassing .. Here I spent nearly 2 days crying myself to sleep over this lol...
I swear to god though.. I don't recall my old monitor doing this? :O It was a Acer G24.
Can any of you name some games where I can test this in? Seems I cannot turn it off in Battlefield 3
I'm getting very desperate here! Please check my two videos below. They show the issues I'm having while playing games.As you can see there is a certain delay on the colors. They should be instant 100% ALL the time.
See when I look up / down in the games.
Is my monitor faulty?
