What's up with people touting glossy as something amazing? The reflections on this get quite distracting and annoying, especially if you want to watch anything on it. I have a BenQ FP241W with anti-reflective coating and I don't notice any sort of 'grain'. Kind of confused here.
While your statement is true, the newer components are, in fact, cheaper.
Nowhere anywhere did I say they advertised above 60hz. I simply said they are now using cheaper components; which is the truth.
Most people are going to be, especially when they receive their monitor to find out the manufacturer is now using cheap components instead. Also, yes, he is right, it is unprecedented.
In any case, my Catleap is going back for replacement soon.
Yeah I don't have the tempered glass version. It does look a little like dust. Not much I can do about it. Even if it was and I opened it up, I'd probably end up getting more dust in it, don't really have access to a Class 3 clean room. :P
Hello everyone, not sure if this is the right place but, I am trying to think of a way to turn my old monitor into a sort of media center for some of my devices. Basically the big thing is looking to hook my monitor for cable TV, however it does not have any coaxial input.
First let me...
Ordered from Green-Sum. Packaging was well done. However that's where the good things end.
1) Opened it up to find WATER INSIDE THE MONITOR PACKAGING.
2) The Stand tilts, but I understand this is normal for all Catleaps.
3) Got 4 dead pixels stacked next to each other.
Deal was too...
Wasn't looking for a new one but... 2560x1440, IPS, possibility of up to 97 hz, $375, low input lag... when similar models are 2-3x the cost in the USA. Um... yeah, pulled the trigger on the Catleap, way too good to pass up. I'll try to do a comparison between this and my BenQ FP241W (P-MVA)...
I have been debating on which of these drives to go with and with every new review I see, I change my mind about which drive to choose. So what it comes down to at the moment seems to be:
Vertex: 120GB, less expensive per GB, writes advertised as up to 180 MB/s (however this seems to only be...
Don't hold your breath. I did 3 RMA's and it took me all of them to get one where the stuck pixels weren't in the center of the screen. The one I have now is about a CM away from the right and is unnoticeable unless on a dark blue background.
EDIT: He also has other variations of this wallpaper.
Lol, I don't use the blue stuff, I think it belonged to someone else at some point in time. I found it a while ago and have been too lazy to throw it away.
Yup, could use ATI/NVIDIA because if you use more than 2 monitors, windows will handle that. Alternatively you could even use a PCI card.
However within Vista (if you ever plan to switch) they won't work unless they are same brands.
Unfortunately what you are looking for should be on your graphics card driver options. I know they are for NVIDIA anyways.
I am unsure of any program that can do it for you. Typically running the HDTV at its native resolution should prevent any overscanning.
Probably stuck. Either way you'll probably want to replace it if you want it gone. I have one on mine and no amount of pixel flashing utilities or tapping will bring it back. Although I guess you could try them beforehand.
The place that manufactures the MVA panels they used previously stopped making them. They can't do anything about it, really. Atleast this is what I heard. Who knows, most likely it will be downgraded to a TN, I think some other models have done that like from Dell and such.
- 30 inch 2560x1600
- S-IPS or better
- Dozens of inputs. HDMI/Display port/DVI/VGA/Component/Composite/S-video/Coax/etc
- 8 ms or smaller
- PiP/PbP with any of said inputs with no restrictions.
- 1:1 ratio with no overscan/scaling problems on the first firmware
- 0 input lag WITH a...
You want to get a lawyer involved over $100? With a lady who offered a 20% discount on a brand new monitor on accident, and continues to honor it? Pardon me, but that's very assholish. Biting the hand that feeds you all. Tsk tsk, don't be surprised if they don't offer public discounts anymore...
I tried the tapping method on a pixel before, it worked.... kind of. It removed the dead pixel from the area and I was happy, except I looked down and somehow the dead pixel moved further away, which made no sense since it wasn't anywhere near the area I was tapping.
I just got my 2nd replacement (3rd monitor) and this one was perfect. No dead pixels, it did have a scuff on it I thought was a scratch. :eek: But I was able to clean it off with some water and a towel. :o /relief
Third monitor times the charm.
As to the guy above me:
"After three Express...
Does anyone actually leave this at default (1.0 [9%] in NVIDIA control panel)? Or do you personally lower it/increase it? Increasing the digital vibrancy, according to the chart below, means I would have to lower the gamma to get it to match. Is this the best way to do it?
According to the...
The screen is bigger it will look more blocky. Has to do with pixel size and screen size in relation to the 1920x1200 resolution or something. The lower the resolution and bigger the screen, the more pixelated it will be. 1920x1200 on a 24" will look more crisp. It's like running 1680x1050 on a...
Blackouts are problems with digital signals. Working with graphics cards for awhile I have had people who have had blackout issues replace their card and it fixed it. Sometimes replacing the cable works. A lot of times it's an issue with the digital signal in general. Basically the blackout...
Obviously you face dead pixels with any monitor. It's the frequency of how often you get monitors with dead pixels. I have ordered around 4 monitors (Different brands even) previous to these 2 with 0 dead pixels. I have a $600 investment in this monitor, you better believe I am going to try to...
So I just got my replacement BenQ monitor from NCIX (New) because the original had a light dead pixel directly in the center.
My replacement has 2 dead black pixels next to each other about 2 inches down from the top center. And also has a dead red pixel 3 inches from the left. Has the quality...
