Is there any point spending extra on the RETINA LED version??
regular LED Version
I could be wrong, but AFAIK, the Apple Retina panel is the same as these IPS panels. It's just a name.
So thats a yes then? the retina does come with a lot more connections like HDMI and DP 1.2 etc etc
I googled it.
So retina is pretty much just marketing terminology in this case. If the extra ports are worth it for you go ahead. I think you can find cheaper units with extra ports though.
In that case I'll just stick to the regular version then, the additional ports would be nice though but DVI-D is just fine
If you want the extra ports there are other non retina models that have them. I have read the they add lag though.
Im also interested in this 'New Crossover' monitor, but it doesnt come with pixel perfect and i dont want to risk paying for something that I need to ship back if defective.
I have that monitor, the PP version.
would you recommend it??
Any of the monitors with this IPS panel is just fine.
For me it came down to who offered the best price with PP.
Well getting the new crossover means that I dont need to buy a better stand for it. Worth it in my opinion
Yeah that was a thing I looked at.too. the stand on the crossover is excellent IMO. I do have to say tho that the back area where the screen is mounted to the.stand is a bit thin and maybe if you adjust your screen a lot it might break.
Also take a look at the overlord monitors, they have a pretty sturdy stand also unlike the cat leaps.
Thats not a problem, the stand on my NEC is pretty solid - Worst case scenario I can swap them over easily since you dont need to take the entire screen apart like the catleap to replace the stand.
Ive tried to ebay search for Overlord monitors but im either spelling it incorrectly or im doing something wrong because im not bringing anything up.
you live in the UK so forget about the Overlord. But if you're curious about it here's the link I posted earlier in this thread
YAMAKASI CATLEAP Q271 RETINA LED FullHD 27" S-IPS 2560X1440 HDMI PIP DP Monitor
HELLO EVERYONE, I have also been looking at this Retina Model, but have been reading about the Imput-Lag associated with the additional ports.
Can anyone tell me how much it actually is... compared to a regular Q270 @60Hz and the overclocked 2B Q270 Version @ 120Hz?
Is there anything else better available?
Don't know the answer too your question but try this website
Or this thread
Since switching to win8 I neglected my colour profiles. Just fixed this and - wow
Do it now if you don't know what I'm talking about....
I use D65 - and though the whole shortcuts thing is nice the proper way to install these is Control Panel > Colour Management
That Support truck for Harley Riders was brilliant! Lot's of lolz. Cheers for the FJR. Gotta try more that profilings stuff. Thx.
Monoprice now offers monitors with the exact same panels
Yes...though they are backordered for almost 2 months now after the intro sale ($319 I believe).
I wish I had cought that.
Now the 30" IPS are coming...
Reading most reviews or customer feedback (not much yet) of the three korean brands that make 30" monitors it becomes clear that these are LCD, not LED, because
- they are thicker than LED monitors
- hotter ...
- the power brick also gets hot
En fin, as said elsewhere I believe that 2013 will be a year of bigger monitors, and I can't wait to see what other brands will offer....
Yes I also expect 2013 to be the year of further affordable 1440P availability outside of Korea/eBay.
