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

    Maybe I was lucky, but my Auria is still working after more than 6 months. Couldn't be happier with the purchase. I love the glossy screen. seems much clearer to me. Wish more manufacturers were offering this.

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

    That's weird. When I asked how long do I have to return it, the sales guy in my Microcenter said I have 30 days, but so far no one has returned any. I have used mine for over a month and no problems whatsoever. Also Microcenter have a 30 day return policy, so if you get any problems that fast...

    My monitor has no such issues. I asked the sales guy to turn it on and hook it up with DVi cable before I bought it, so I can check it for defects.

    Did you give it a couple of minutes? I've heard on some card/monitor combinations you see nothing until Windows loads.

    Since you got it from MicroCenter, might as well use their 30 day return policy and exchange it. At least you will know you did what you could to get a good one and won't regret not doing it later.

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

    Alright!!! I am happy to report that the latest beta drivers 12.7 beta have fixed the problem with stuttering. I get more fps in the games and the weird stuttering is gone! Woot! As a bonus, my wife told me that the mother in law wanted to make each of us a present, and mine will be.. $400 for...

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

    Ah Thanks for this, I was not aware of the difference in panels. For some reason I thought the Dell was IPS as well. The lightness does disappear if I put mu face perpendicular to it. It's most noticeable in the bottom 2 corners when I face the center top half the screen and look down towards...

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

    Oh yes, around 20. But then Amalur does not and is having the same problem even though it is running at higher fps than Skyrim. Low VRAM could be though, 1GB is on the low side for 2560x1440. Just did some more tests. Reducing graphic quality improves the stuttering some. No stuttering when...

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

    Oh the changing resolutions part was for testing purposes, to stress the monitor see what happens. Similar switches on the Dell still make the picture jump around but is overall much smoother and quicker. As for the video card, from what I know, a 7850 is on-par with my 5870 in performance, if...

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

    Hi all, I was in the market for a 27" glossy monitor and after finding this thread I headed to my local Microcenter and got one. Created an account just to post my experience with the monitor. I'm not going to discuss the stand, because it is irrelevant to me as far as monitor quality goes...
