    Same LG panel and same PCB. Input lag is minimal on all of these monitors. What I want to know is.. can you increase the Hz on the Crossover?

    the only thing i don't like about 1440p is games that i normally would max out with my 7970 don't max out with 1440p. i cant believe they advertise these next gen cards can handle 4k HDTV's, they can barely handle 2560 x 1440/1600 still. lmao

    Turn down the level of AA and a few of the low IQ gain high fps drop settings and you should be able to max the rest for most games

    sadly for most gpus, CFX/SLI is a must at this resolution

    I don't think any of the latest Catleaps or Crossovers can overclock the refresh rate. I have only heard of the initial Catleaps being able to do 100+ Hz.

    I just got off of some BF3 multiplayer with everything maxed out (Ultra, 4x MSAA ...) at 1440p, with a custom FXAA injector, and I was averaging 30 FPS everywhere. Turn the motion blur to maximum and 30 FPS is "very fluid."

    I cant stand motion blur either. If I did get one, I might also have to upgrade my 6950 to a 7970. I am also considering eyefinitny with 3 regular eyefinity monitors. I just can't decide whether I want one really nice screen, or a super widescreen resolution gaming.

    You could just do 6950 CFX since you have the 2GB version

    Hair dryer, heat it up and remove. It's glued on.

    Can you post a photo packing this product from seller "accessorieswhole"
    many ebay sellers do not pay attention to shipping packing
    even on the OCN forum who purchased one of these cheap monitors
    arrived in poor condition even destroyed :banghead:
    It does not matter as long as the seller to give a 1 year warranty
    but you have to pay $100 more for shipping back to seller

    open tempered glass does not solve the problem
    because the panel itself is also glossy
    unless you buy and install anti glare http://www.radtech.us/products/clearcal-displays.aspx

    A 10-bit panel too if the specs are to be believed.

    I havn't tried, but I think I could get one for about $300. This might be the better option though being through a US retailer

    Care to share? I've been itching to pick one up from one of the Korean eBayers, but I'm a little hesitant to risk having to shell out $100 return shipping should anything go wrong.

    Yes, I'd like to know as well. My monitor has developed an entire vertical row of pixels stuck on magenta. I'd like a new monitor but I can't go back to anything smaller. If I can get one in the States that'd be great.

    damn 400$, warranty in the US, scaler and multiple imputs?

    That would be a great deal... I paid 325$ for m PCBank and hate not having that scaler or doubler, so no PS3 on my IPS :(

    Thats too bad. Yours going bad makes me more cautious.

    Maybe it is my mistake but I thought microcenter was in the US and that this overclock page was about a microcenter version of that 27 inch ips display.

    I have the Korean PCBank not the MC version, I'm saying MC's deals is good because it has features mine doesn't for only a small price increase. The Korean monitors with the features mentionned end up being 400$ anyways

    If you buy another, are you not afraid it will turn out to have issues like this one does?

    Yep, but this time I'd like a warranty. I simply can't go back to an (build quality aside) inferior monitor. Plus, no other monitor has sweet, sweet Air Hores. :)
