My monitor arrived yesterday and I finally got it up and running today. I thought my 5770 didn't have dual-link DVI so I went to borrow a friend's GT240. But as it turns out, my R5770 Hawk does
have dual-link DVI. I didn't know until I yanked out the card to replace it with the GT240 and saw the pin configuration and thought it was dual-link DVI out. A quick Google and I was right! Thank you MSI for finally getting something right. You have restored my faith in your company.
Anyway, my Q270 is a little tilted downwards to the left so I'm replacing it with a 3M Easy-Adjust Monitor Stand (MS110MB)
. My thin (.5") glass desk probably won't support desk clamps, and even if it did I wouldn't want to risk cracking the class. Wall mounting just isn't an option since there's no wall behind my desk.
The only thing I don't like about this monitor is that it doesn't display anything prior to Windows loading. I'm going to need to keep a spare monitor aside for overclocking.
I checked for dead pixels and the monitor is perfect (as far as I can see). There's also minimal/no backlight bleeding (again, as far as I can tell), so the only issue is the stand which will be fixed tomorrow morning.
Pictures will come as soon as I charge my camera and install the stand.
